Wednesday Weigh Day 11

Welcome to the Eleventh of a 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. With a current Daily Kilojoule goal of 5000Kj, to better tie in with my wife who is also on the weight loss journey, and to expedite the weight loss so I can wok out my neutral caloric intake. I have been on the 5000Kj goal for just over of a month now and have settled into the reduced intake reasonably well.

This week was a bit of a blow out. My wife and I decided to not be cautious over the 4 days of Easter and indulge a little. Enjoy the Chocolate, have our own Passover meal, consume more Hot Cross Buns then I care to remember, and just indulge a little. Subsequently, there were reprucussions.

Weight at Start: 131.7kg

Goal Weight: 95kg

Weight Today: 117.7kg

Weight Loss this Week: +0.7kg

Total Weight Loss: 14.0kg

Amount till Goal Weight: 22.7kg

My front and side will obviously have changed very little in a week, though there are changes. If you want to see the biggest change I encourage you to look at Week 1, then look back at these pictures. Having said that, I have noticed that on most pair of pants I have reclaimed yet another belt loop.

This week I thought I would share my Soy and Ginger Beef recipe. It’s an adaptation of a recipe from one our old Diabetic diet boss, when my wife was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes. I find these recipes a good place to start as they have eliminated most of the carbohydrates and limited the fats, thus lowering the Kilojoules.
