That's it, I finally admitted I am fat.

There isn't any point pretending, I am gross. So, time to do something about it:

Diet, basically zero carbs/low GI. Rye bread for example has a Glycemic Index of 45, not much more than broccoli, so that is an OK carb.

Also taking apple cider vinegar, 2 teaspoons before a meal, and at night. Unpasteurised. Apparently it has good bacteria in it.

Started a few days ago and losing half a kilo a day:
121.3
121
120.5
120
119.5

It works. Really.

My target is 100 kgs, I weighed that when I was ~30. I cold hit this by the end of March at this rate! Ideal, want to go skiing, and NOT lugging 20kgs around is going to make me ski great! Smile | :)


One note, I was very tired for two days on zero carbs, so I had a rye bread cheese fondue. About 1000 calories in total. Feel much better.

And I am allowing myself red wine, say three glasses or so a night.
