previous weight - 203.5 BMI 34.9
current weight - 201.5 BMI 34.6
Loss - 2lb
% loss - 0.98%

I can smell that 200lb barrier!

Got to stay to the meeting Monday, we were talking about our mini-goals, and I shared mine, of getting under the BMI barrier of 30 for the new year. I've got 11 weeks to lose the 26.5lbs needed to do it - just under 2.5lb a week, game on.

Went to gym after meeting, having eaten fairly recently so felt I'd have to take the cardio slow, still managed a decent-ish workout.

Did beavers in the evening, kids cooked fairy cakes and again, knowing now that I *can't* eat the wheat,  I wasn't even tempted. No aquafit after, as my tattoo is still too new, another week or so until I get back in the pool.

Tuesday was Kai's last group session for occupational therapy, he's done so well (and got a little certificate to say so!) just an hour of crawling about and lifting him in bizarre ways, then we rushed over to Reigate to do 45minutes of rugby before heading home. Spent the evening lifting heavy vivaria around my room, so a decent workout there too...

Today was typical humpday, Seth is ill (think he has a throaty virus my mum did last week) so we stayed in and did housework and food planning for Saturday (Sam's nacho party!) Did get to the gym tonight though and had a good go round and upped a few weights. Noticed my arms looking a lot leaner as I was working, and was grinning like a mad person.

Also took 10 minutes to use the treadmill for fit test, found my vo2 max was around 32-33, which one source had as just on the threshold for 'average', but I've found a 'meaner' table, and I am there I am in the middle of 'below average'. (Yay for not being poor/very poor now though, certainly would have been 3/4 months ago).
Will aim to do the test each week going forward, I want to be 'excellent' ^_^ Will settle for being (at the high end of) average (and 'overweight') for the end of the year though.
