Weeks 3 to 4

Work on "Regularity"

It's an icky subject, but your bowel movements can greatly affect your weigh ins. Try to get into a "daily" habit of evacuation. Some helpful tools are drinking warm water with lemon daily and bumping up your water consumption along with your insoluble fiber.

"Bought some new smaller clothes, and took some trousers in. Nice!"

Weeks 8 to 10

Make exercise a regular part of your day

Not everyone has exercise in as a part of their regime, but try adding in any extra exercise to your day.

See if this affects your weight loss for the next 2 weeks.
