Over six months on 'Lifetime Maintenance' and so far maintaining my weight at roughly its existing level has been easy. My weight as at Sunday 29th August was 63.5 Kg (140 Lb), a marginal increase of 0.1 Kg (0.2 Lb) since I last wrote here on 24th May. My overall weight loss since I started this 'way of eating' on 15th June 2003 is 34.5 Kg (76.1 Lb) - or almost 5 1/2 stones!! Measurement indicators for the last 14 weeks:
- waist static at 30.2 inches (total reduction 14.8 inches);
- hips down 0.1 inches to 37.4 inches (total reduction 11.1 inches);
- thighs down 0.1 inches to 21.3 inches (total reduction 7.2 inches).
I'll write here again about my 'Atkins' experiences after another 12 weeks (toward the end of November 2004). You can read an expanded version of this entry here. Or click on the permanent link under 'Atkins Diet' in the column to the right, to read the full story.
