Welcome to the Twelfth post 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.
This week I managed to recover from the Easter Binge, and get closer to my goal.
Weight at Start: 131.7kg
Weight Today: 116.6kg
Weight Loss this Week: 1.2kg
Total Weight Loss: 15.1kg
Amount till Goal Weight: 21.6kg
My front and side will obviously have changed very little in a week. This week, being 12 weeks since I began this journey, I decided to have a look at the side by side to see the transformation so far. 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, and easiest, Recipe this week was the Satay Beef. This recipe is one I cam up with in my cooking class back in grade 9 (2001). Its one of the first recipes I taught my son, and it is a great little staple for a quick and easy meal.
