Well, since I joined in september I have dropped 6-7 kilos from 85 to 78/79. For the most part, I have maintained eating less than 2000 calories a day with a few slip ups. Its not all healthy stuff, but when I do eat really bad stuff I skip a meal to make up for it. I have found it rather easy to ditch the coke after 7 or so years of drinking it, and I think thats making a pretty big difference.

I'm not drinking as much water as I was in the first two weeks, since I was home most of that time. Its a bit hard to constantly go to the toilet all day when I am in lectures. :)

I think most of the weight has come off my stomach, I have noticed it is looking a lot flatter and better than before, the skin is a fair bit firmer and seems to have less fat on it. Some of my pants are a bit lose now too. :P

So the next step, I'd like to lose another 3-4 kilos just to get myself well back in to the healthy range for BMI, and start building muscle. I'd really like some muscle definition on my stomach, and a bit more around my shoulders and arms. I'm looking forward to swimming every day when it starts getting warmer, that should be good. Better find out how best to work my stomach.

Hmm slipping up for the next week or so. I have exams, they're pretty intense, my final undergrad exams, so no real time to exercise. And when hunger hits, I'd rather just eat crap and get rid of the weight later, makes me feel better for exams. I've put half a kilo back on.

But, as soon as they are finished, I'll get back into exercising, and start swimming. I swam a bit yesterday. And of course, go back to eating properly.

Good luck with your exams.

Try not to use this stressful exam period as an excuse to eat unhealthily. You may think you feel better eating the junk you crave, but in reality, you'll feel better and perform better if you eat well. Now's a challenging time and a great time to create some new habits.

All the best!
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
