Well today is the first day of the end of my life – or what most people call the first day of my diet. I don’t call it a diet because a diet is a temporary thing – and in reality you should be permanently changing your habits – not just for a short time.
About 18 months ago I was about 14kg overweight and I read this fantastic book called the hackers diet (http://www.fourmilab.ch/hackdiet). A bit but it really worked – I lost 12 of the 14 kg I wanted (took about 6 months) by following his very simple exercise plan and simply counting what I ate.
I used his eatwatch tool for the palm and I bought a calorie tracking tool for the palm as well. All was going well – and then I slid …
The palm got sold so I had no tool to track my weight and the food counting was a pain in the ar%e for me (see previous posts about me being lazy) so that slid as well.
Fast forward to now and I have put on 10 kg since I lost it all.
So today I dusted off the exercise chart and counted what I ate for breakfast.
Lets see I can keep the motivation up.
