Wednesday Weigh Day 1

Welcome to the First of a new continuing series of posts called Wednesday Weigh Day. These posts will be a tracker for my progress through weight loss, hopefully, and a way to share my journey, and some of my recipes.

Weight at Start: 131.7kg

Weight Today: 126.2kg

Weight Loss this Week: 5.5kg

Total Weight Loss: 5.5kg

Amount till Goal Weight: 31.2kg

Week One Front

Week One Front

Week One Side

Week One Side

My front and side will obviously have changed very little in a week. You’ll also notice the dip in the right shoulder. Thats the result of four reconstructive style surgeries to increase mobility and use following a fall during my service. At last check up, I have lost 33% capacity compared to a normal fit person my age.

By Far the best Recipe this week was the Mexican Pulled Beef with Crisp Salad. We had it as a family on Monday night and it was to die for, then we had our close friends, read extended family, come over Tuesday and we had it again and there wasn’t a scrap on a plate anywhere.
