Day two

I’m trying to decide if I should post every day. I think it might get a bit dull and repetitive very quickly, so at the moment I’ll probably post whenever I feel the need to off-load, ask myself a question (oh dear), or just want to express something.

Today has been a bit tricky. Didn’t eat enough at lunchtime and the app has told me I’ve eaten too many carbs – despite being hungry.

Going to see what quick dietary changes I can make to sort that out otherwise me and the app are going to fall out rather quickly…

Day one

Today was ok. I have joined a health programme (“the app”). I’ll refrain from identifying it just yet, but needless to say, I am sceptical. More about my ability to keep going with it rather than the science behind it all.

I’ve joined on a fortnight free trial with a pretty hefty price tag if I continue afterwards so I’m determined to give it a go – but be realistic about my early goals.

From my (many) previous attempts at this, the first two weeks see the weight come off rapidly and then plateau. So I can’t be sucked in to an expensive fad if I’ll lose interest after week 5.

Oh, and my opening weight was 17st 1. And I am going to own that.

Saving Dave…

The first step

My name is Dave, and this is a big ‘first’ step for me. I am 44 years old, very overweight, out of shape, quite low about myself with poor self-esteem… the usual moan to be honest. It is Sunday night. I’ve just had a Magnum ice cream… Today has been a good day. I’ve had lovely time with my family, seen the in-laws at our place for the first time in 15 months… And I’ve also decided that enough is enough.

Saving Dave (autocorrect is going to do my head in with this blog) is my own journal of my journey. But, I am not alone on this journey. I have my family – my reason for saving Dave.

I’ve said enough for this first post. Tomorrow it starts. I don’t know my weight but I will post it tomorrow, and every week after on a Monday.
