Losing Weight With The Frugal Bastard

Ever since attending a wellness seminar in January I have sworn off biscuits, chips (fries) and potato chips (crisps). I try to eat as healthily as possible and generally have two pieces of fruit per day. Not much has changed on the exercise front as I still catch the bus and go for a wander around the lake during the break for lunch. Oh, soft drink (soda) is almost completely banned. Except for an after work do where they serve beer or soft drink and then the choice is somewhat limited.

This morning I weighed myself. Tipped the scales at 72kg which is five or six kilos lighter than in January. And this was after Easter and let's not forget that there were two birthdays at work and I'm not one to miss out on free, yummy cake. It's not really that free though. I've bought a couple of cakes for my birthday and they set me back nearly fifty bucks. So you have to make the most of it when given the opportunity.

Just swear off the crap that you are pouring down your throat people.

I lost 17 pounds this year. Diet soda is good and you can drink as much as you want the Dr. Said. Good luck. I still need to lose some. Annette

Only 72kgs, your making me feel like a fat bastard Hammy. I tip the scales at 86kgs, but then again muscle is pretty heavy ;)

C'mon James, which muscle are you talking about? The one in your head or the one in your pants? I'm a lean, mean fighting machine. Just need to do some work to tone it up.

You can't tone up bone hammy.
