Earlier this week Hamster was feeling tired, weak and kinda light-headed, yesterday after not taking my blood-pressure tablet I felt just fine - actually better than fine really good in fact. I'll stay off it for a few days and then start taking it again and see what happens. I'll be seeing my doctor again in a couple of weeks so we can have another chat about my medications again then.
Hamster is pleased to report that people at work are now noticing that there is a lot less of Hamster. One guy even used the words "looking really good". This all makes Hamster very pleased and more determined than ever to loose more weight.
All is good with the exercise. I did my normal lunch-time 4 km walk. In the gym I increased my random hill walking up to 20 minutes and my flat walking up to 2 1/2 kms but kept the rowing at 2 kms. I'm begining to notice that the speed of my rowing is slowing increasing, this is not a deliberate increase but just occurring naturally.
The diet is continuing to be good and I see no problem with continuing to eat like this forever. The problem is that I cannot eat like this forever as at some point I will have to increase my calorie intake to a maintenance level without gaining weight. Weight maintenance will be the BIG challenge. Remaining dairy-free will be a major component is avoiding weight gain, as I am convinced that dairy is the major cause of my previous weight.
This weekend Hamster is going to have to buy some more clothes because everything seems to have stretched and Hamster hates buying clothes.
