That's Some Good Weight Loss There

Look across to the right, and then look back here. You see that? You see that thing that says I've lost 30 pounds overall? I got weighed on Tuesday and I lost 8 pounds, which feels pretty damn good. Last week I only lost about 2 pounds or so, and that was after I took my shoes off. My shoes weigh about a kilo. My coat weighs 2. So it DOES help for me to take a few things off when I weigh myself.

I took what my nutritionist said to heart and ate more fruit and vegetables, and I also exercised more. I went on at least one short walk a week, and I plan to up that this time around. I can also easily afford to eat yet more fruits and vegetables. So that left me feeling pretty good about myself if I do say so.

I do feel a little bad about my nutritionist though. She tried to chat about regular stuff and I wasn't very responsive. I wasn't feeling all that great overall, so I wasn't feeling up to being social. She was asking me some questions about my past and stuff too which was a little weird. We got into conversations about people who play Second Life and my time playing Warcrafft. It was almost bizarre. Although that did give me an idea for a post though, so expect that sometime soon.

I have to admit I never really expected her to talk about personal things. She did also talk about water. Apparently men are supposed to drink THREE LITRES of water a day. I'm going to have to go from drinking one bottle of water per meal to two if I want to do that.

She did sort of admit that the water thing is a bit of a jip. She said that the people in charge of deciding how much water you need constantly up it. They wait until about 80% of the population are drinking how much they say, then they up it. That's why it's gone from 2 litres (or 8 cups) to 3 litres.

So drink more water. Lots more water. KEEP DRINKING WATER.

  3. I know I need to drink more water! I don't drink nearly enough. Congrats on the 30 pounds lost Mark! And perhaps your nutritionist just needed someone to talk to that day and you were the right person at the right time for her.

  4. A body can drink too much water, everybody is different and only you will know how much water your body needs, if you drink too much water it will give you headaches and make you feel yuck, I know because I was drinking 2 litres a day and that was too much for my body I was feeling terrible and when I went to the doctor and we discussed what I was doing different that was it I had increased my water intake and he told me I was drinking too much for my body. That said great work on the weight loss, I go for a 30 minute walk most mornings and try to eat right, I say try because somedays I do well some days not so good but I am still trying
