I have been planning to lose weight over the summer, and I think I am making some progress. Having done a SSM in Obesity and its' management in Year 2, I am all too aware that a diet alone doesn't lead to weight loss in the long term but to weight yo-yoing which is worse for your long term health.
In order to work out whether my combination of eating less fat and doing more exercise is working, I today bought some scales and discovered some amusing features:
- Eating lunch put on 0.01 stones (how you divide a stone into decimals is beyond me sinc eit is normally 14 lbs or 16oz each...)
- Washing my face seemed to lose 0.02 stones
- Depending on whether you put your feet together or apart alters your weight.
