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.
