Re: Tarz84 - Fat Fighting Journey -21.7kgs gone!

Thu Jan 13, 2011 2:57 pm

Wow I had no idea this section of the forum was even here.. Until I searched for Calorie King and to see if there were any users on here and CK.

So I am tracking my weigh loss heavily on CK so I may as well post it here too.

I was small most of my life until just after school when i stacked on almost 10 kgs in 3 years then slowly gained almost 3-4 kgs a year since. So here I am now.. A not so healthy 93.4kgs. I can not wait to go dress shopping I have had to stop myself so many times as I know it will just upset me and send me into a spiral of emotional eating and gaining more weight.

Starting Weight: 97.2 (01/01/2011)
Weigh In:94.5 (06/01/11)
Weigh In:95.4 (12/01/11)
Weigh In:94.2 (19/01/11)
Weigh In:94.4 (02/02/11)
Weigh In:93.4 (11/02/11)
Weigh In:93 (15/02/2011)
Weigh In: 92.2 (20/02/2011)
Weigh In: 91.6 (01/03/2011)
Weigh In: 91.6 (09/03/2011)
Weigh In: 90.5 (15/03/2011)
Weigh In: 90.1 (21/03/2011)
Weigh In: 89.6 (25/03/2011)
Weigh In: 89.0 (29/03/2011)
Weigh In: 90.1 (19/04/2011)
Weigh In: 88.9 (11/05/2011)
Weigh In: 88.1 (18/05/2011)
Weigh In: 87.5 (25/05/2011)


Current Weight: 86.3 (25/05/2011)
Lost To Date: 10.9kgs




So here are a list of my goals:


Goal 1 - 85 Kgs by Spa Day
Goal 2 - 80 kgs by Fly to See Mum and Dad in SA
Goal 3 - 75 kgs by Not sure yet!!
Goal 3 - 70 kgs by Fly to Sydney
Goal 3 - 65 kgs by Spa Day
Final Goal - 60 kgs by Shopping Spree

Maintian till 24/08/2012 - WEDDING DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Good on you for posting pics and setting your goals, your goals are great and you have set achievable targets which is fantastic.

Congratulations on your 1.8kgs so far thats a great start.

Ive also been on a weight loss journey and am still on it, I was always small as well but after having 3 kids in 4 years my body took a beating and I ended up at 79.9kgs, I went to the gym for ages and watched what I ate but in a few months I only lost 2.6kgs and was a little discouraged. Jump forward a few months and I realised how close my wedding is and that my boobs dotn fit in my dress I decided its time to get my but in gear this was the week before xmas not the best time to start but hey thats when it happened.

I have basically increased my water intake a lot I only drank one maybe two if your lucky bottles a day and now Im drinking 4-5 I have also been watching my portion sizes a lot and drinking a heap of water before every meal to that I am not eating as much, I have never really been a terrible eater Im a vegetarian so its not like I eat meat lovers pizzas and things all the time but I did find I was eating a lot of pasta and rice and things and way too big serves I was just being a little bit piggy.

I have lost 4.3 kgs in a month all from that and also walking my dog everyday without fail regarless of rain etc. I still want to loose at least another 5 before my wedding so hopefully it will happen!!

Good luck on your journey you can do it, if I can U can as well, I look forward to seeing updates from you

Thanks Ladies, I really struggle in staying motivated so its really nice to hear your kind words.

I purchased a Heart Rate Monitor today, cant wait for it to come.. I love gadgets.. Also I have an appointment at my gym to discuss the options for Personal Training.. I am hoping to do 1 or 2 a week for the next few months... Then re-asses.

I also do 2 hours of dancing a week which is so much fun that it doesn't even feel like exercise.

Anyways I better be off..

Thanks again Girls... i really means alot that people are behind me :heart:

Thanks Caz & Jodie......

Sooo I went to the gym last night for the first time in almost a year and I am actually really proud of myself. a few exciting things happened.

1stly I booked into for 1 PT session a week for the next 6 months and this PT is a little mental. The first time I went to her she made me almost throw up but in a good way. I actually worked hard for her which is not what I would do if I went to the gym normally.

2ndly I walked 1k to the gym in the rain. I promised myself I would go no matter what and I don't have a car so i had to walk. Then I walked home in the rain for 1 k and it was actually quite nice. It wasn't too cold so i enjoyed. Proved to myself I can do to the gym rain, hail or shine

3rdly and probably the most exciting thing for me... I actually ran on the treadmill... I don't run AT ALL!!!!! I have always had a large bust so I just didnt run coz it was uncomfortable but last night without anyone telling me i should.. I ran... for 2 x 1 min sprints I know its not much but wow it made me feel soo good.

Then I got home and crashed in front of the couch to watch Jerseylicious.. a good day I say lol

uummmmm update on my exercise for yesterday

Walk 1.6ks - To the station in the morning
Walk 1.6ks - From the station in the arvo
Walk 1ks to the gym
25 min on the treadmill varied speeds and inclines
10 mins on recline bike
Walk 1k home from the gym

Did eat very well at lunch.. I had a kebab and wedges.. but back on the wagon today yay!!

OOOOO also I lost another 400grams. woot woot down to a loss of 2.2kgs in 14 days!

Well done on the loss!!

In terms of food, I find it helps if you have a meal plan, and also have food prepared that can be divided into individual portions and put in the freezer. Also having your fruit/vegies etc available (so shopping once a week for everything you'll need) means you should have no excuse to get takeaway!

We have things like bolognaise sauce (to eat with vegies, not pasta), chilli
con carne, soups, meat cut into portions, meat cut into strips for stirfry etc. It takes part of the hassle out of cooking at night :)

This is what i need to do.... I just run out of time on the weekends lol its so hard when both FH and I work full time. FH does a 50 hours week and I dont get home till 6.30 - 7.00 so this would be perfect.

Until I get into the swing of things. I have ordered some liteneasy meals so we dont go for takeaway. they are just as easy and at least I can control my portions with these. I will only do it until I get into the habit of preparing food.

YUM Chilli con carne.... any chance you have a nice recipe for this... I have tried a few different ones and none of the them were nice.



Thanks everyone for your lovely comments!! sooo motivating!

Chilli con carne
(not sure if it'll be any different to ones you've tried, but it's the recipe given to me by the lady who wrote my food and training program)

We divide it into 8 portions, 320cal each serve. We have it with cauliflower rice and steamed vegetables...

750gm lean beef mince
2 tbps chilli powder (ours is really hot so we don't use this much!!)
2 cloves garlic
2 medium onions
1 chilli
2 medium sized capsicums
750gm can tomatoes (crushed/diced)
400gm can kidney beans

Cook mince in a nonstick pot.
(when it's cooked we cover it with boiling water, boil it for about a minute, then strain it - it gets more fat out...)
Add onions, capsicum, garlic and chilli to mince and cook until vegies are soft. Add chilli powder and cook for a minute.
Add tomatoes and 1 cup of water, bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes
Add kidney beans, increase the heat a little and cook for another 10 minutes.
