Apparently I've lost a stone and a half of weight since I've retired. OK there's no apparently, because I stood on the scales and they're the ones that told me I'd lost the weight since the last time I stood on them. I guess I should say that I've accidentally done it, unintentionally.

Regardless, I've lost 21lb. Or 9.5kg depending on which form of measurement you ascribe to.

I'm not saying I couldn't have done with losing the weight. Samantha has in fact been nagging me to lose weight for months and now that I've lost some I do feel better. If more continues to drop then great.

How have you unintentionally lost 21lb in 10 weeks, Jack? I hear you asking.
(You are asking, right?)

I'm not exactly sure. I'm drinking less coffee, I'm eating less cake and biscuits, I'm snacking less in general - and when I am snacking it's on the healthy things in the house; fruit & veg mostly.
This is all directly related to not being in the office. Also connected is getting more exercise - longer walks with the dog in the morning, not sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day, helping Lucy with the housework, more sex.

Shocking, I know. Eating healthy and more exercise = weight loss. I'm just not used to losing weight without making an intentional effort to do so.

About Me

I'm Jack, a recent retiree looking for a new hobby. Apparently 'annoying my girlfriend' isn't the best use of my days. Her opinion, not mine

I'm a life-long science-fiction and superheroes fan, and a voracious reader. I enjoy movies, fishing, astronomy, and gardening.

I live in Wales with my wife, our girlfriend and an ever growing collection of four-legged friends.
