As everyone in our office will be well aware I have been on a diet for the last few months – I started in October 2010 following my wife’s ‘caring suggestion’ that I was becoming a ‘fat bastard’ (sadly she was correct).
The chosen method was to use a ‘loose’ weight watchers plan. I am far too tight to pay to go to weight watchers meetings so some old weight watchers books and documents begged from friends and an app on my iPhone have done the job (plus a lot of help from my wife – thanks Wendy!)
The iwatchr app allows me to record my points intake each day, calculate how many points each item is (ie. Cadbury’s Cream egg is 3.5, an apple is 0.5). It also allows me to add any bonus points for exercise etc. Simple but incredibly helpful if you are trying to manage your food intake.
The TargetWeight app tells me this morning that I am now officially ‘normal’ (debatable) and my BMI has dropped below the overweight band – everything has turned green!
So having lost almost two and a half stone now I am feeling rather smug! Just another half stone to go!
