1. THE THIRD, SOMETIMES FORGOTTEN ASPECT
Everyone interested in weight loss focuses on what they take into their bodies and exercise. Those two are non-negotiable. But, there is another aspect we must be sure to work on – posture.
It’s all very well losing the weight but we will struggle to lose that telly belly without working on our posture. So what am I talking about ?
Awareness is the key. We must be aware of how we sit, for a start. Do we “slop” down on the couch with our telly belly in super relaxed mode, or do we focus on keeping it flexed and firm ? I know we can’t do this all of the time because the telly takes our focus, but we can flex and tighten every time we think about it, can’t we ?
And what about when we sit on a chair ? Do we sit with a curved spine, again with our telly belly super relaxed ? We might even be “loading” it if we are sitting eating a meal or drinking a coffee or a beer. We need to be aware of our posture whenever we are sitting. Keep that telly belly firm !
And when we stand ? Do we stand with our telly belly pushed out? I often catch myself doing this. Let’s be aware and always stand with our telly belly pulled in.
The more we become aware of and respond/react to how we lie down, sit and stand, the more our posture will improve and the sooner the telly belly will “deflate.”
I am working hard at being aware of how I carry my body and just wanted to share my thinking with anyone who like me, is trying to lose weight and the telly belly especially.
Be healthy, be happy and be safe.

3. My Week
Thursday 11th January 2018
Christmas has come and gone, New Years Eve has come and gone, four days of chest infection has come and gone. Weighed in at 85.3 kgs in my underjocks first thing this morning. Am not yet ready for exercise. Have targeted Sat. for my return to action. It is going to be a case of not too far, too fast, too soon. See you all on Thursday 18th January 2018. Will see if I am any closer to my targets.
Short Term: 18th January 2018 83kgs
Medium Term: 15th February 2018 80kgs
Long Term: 19 April 2018 75kgs
So after weighing I needed a plan to reduce my flab by 5 punnets (500g each) of margarine/spread by 18 Feb. Fail to plan and you plan to fail. Cut down drastically on the biscuits, drink more water, eat less at mealtimes, cut down drastically on volume of food at mealtimes, walk at least 30 minutes a day, step counter must register at least 10,000 steps per day, dance to at least 4 tracks a day, ride my stationary bike to at least 2 tracks a day, try and do plank exercises during the day, cut down drastically on bread, cut down drastically on food intake.
Well, today is Tuesday 16/01/2018 and I haven’t implemented any of the above – oh, I have walked a little.
However, I had one half of a pawpaw with lemon juice this morning for breakfast and that is all. Also had hot water with lemon juice when I woke. Felt a little week at around 10am so ate an apple. Feeling good.
