Good luck, CB. Great to see some old faces around here! 8kg is an amazing achievement and I hope your weight loss is still going well.

My weightloss is still going. Slower now, but still going. I need to get more sleep too, since lack of sleep seems to trigger hunger.

My poor sleep habits are now in the firing line. It has become apparent that better quality sleep is imperative. The problem is made worse by shift-work where some nights a week I'll be awake half the night doing admnistration work. Tiredness often triggers hunger, but a short rush of blood sugar from a late night snack doesn't last, and is counterproductive in the long run.

I seem to have solved the sleep problem, although it's been hit or miss for the past few months. A goof night's sleep also helps lower the appetite!

Well, well. It appears the lockdown in my city has proven to be more useful than just slowing the transmission of COVID-19. I'm exercising more in the early morning to avoid people on the walking tracks, and I am eating less to avoid the risks associated with obtaining groceries.

I'm looking and feeling healthier. And my clothing is much looser than in previous months. :-)

Hi CB,

That's great to hear! I hope you keep to your new healthy habits now everyone's mostly out of lockdown.

I found lockdown was great for my health, too. Somehow the directive that I could only exercise for a limited time each day meant I had a use-it-or-lose-it mentality and made sure I got out for that time and walked! Also, the knowledge that COVID-19 has a far worse impact on people who are obese made me take stock and get back into weight loss again (it had been creeping up steadily since I was last regularly on the forum).

Good luck with your continued healthy habits, CB!

cheers,
EWQ

I haven't eaten biscuits and other snack foods for a while now. Bread consumption is low - due to my personal rule that I can eat bread but only the healthy and expensive type ( low carb, plenty of seeds, usually a single loaf on the shop shelves on any given day). Since I dislike spending money my consumption of bread is minimal. I just need to exercise more often... :-/
