Wednesday Weigh Day 2


Welcome to the second 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. From now the daily goal will no longer be 7000Kj, but 6000Kj, in consultation with my Nutritionist.

Weight at Start: 131.7kg

Weight Today: 124.9kg

Weight Loss this Week: 1.3kg

Total Weight Loss: 6.8kg

Amount till Goal Weight: 29.9kg

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.
