Welcome Middy! It's great to have another person to encourage us all in our weight loss goals.

Look on the positive side bronzestar - at least now you know where you stand. You know how to get your fitness back as you've done it before. It is great to release those endorphins (says I who has been sitting on the sofa instead of going to the gym tonight - oh well, I promised myself I will go for a run in the morning).

Oh i love this glass! where do i get 3? (me, mum & MIL) :heart: :mrgreen:


Adrienne, I want one too so had a bit of a search. They're from a company called Caloric Cuvee (they're only in the US :cry: )....BUT, I found an etsy seller that posts them here! http://www.etsy.com/listing/101881699/c ... nting-wine. It'd be expensive at an engravers, we had thankyou written on pens and they charge almost $1 per character (we went to like 10 and they were all similar price).


MP, yay!!! 500g is still a big thing, especially with AF round the corner! I have no doubt you'll reach your goal for this month.

Bronzestar, I agree with hbm, at least you know you can get back there. I think everyone puts on weight after the wedding, it's been 3kgs for me! I think the hardest thing is getting the hubby to change his ways too as it makes it so much easier when you're both eating healthy.

AFM, I've given up with weight loss. No kicking my butt though, I have an excuse :P In the past week and a half I've managed 120kms! Considering I've been struggling to walk more then a couple hundred metres I'm beyond proud so that's why I've given up on weight loss. I no longer care about losing weight, I care about getting my health back. I care about being a stubborn *** and proving I can do it! For me, I've always struggled when I'm trying to lose weight, my motivation just wanes. So I've found my motivation now, I want to be able to manage Kokoda, baby steps though, I want to be able to manage to do the groceries without having to stop every second aisle to catch my breath, I want to be able to do my 20kms without my lungs feeling on fire after just 1km. I know it will take a lot of perseverance and a lot of pushing myself but I need to beat this. Of course I'm still going to be eating healthy but my focus has just changed.

So goes everyone else going?

Dark Phoenix - that's a big achievement in itself. Well done

As for me I am happy finally under 65 currently sitting at 64.5 only 1.5 kilos to go and I will be at my goal weight. I am feeling my fitness improve which is great

Hi everyone!
Went to the GP for my knee yesterday. 4 min and $60 later I have a referral to an orthopedic surgeon. (I hate it when they do that. We both knew that all he was going to give me was a referral, so why not save me $60 and just post it out) I'm excited for the surgery though, as it's still 15 months until my wedding, I'm hoping it heals and strengthens in time for me to start exercising properly and tone up. It's frustrating having all the motivation in the world, but I can't do much with it.

As for weight loss, i caved yesterday and had a picninc 8O but am proud of myself for stopping at one. Getting braces on Tuesday for the wedding. Apparently you eat soup for a week so I'm sure that will keep me away from the chocolate!

Miss Anne I couldn't see a link attached for those exercises, but if you could re post it that would be awesome :D

Keep it up bronzestar. At least you caught it now before it got too out of hand. Darkphoenix that is amazing! You should be so proud of yourself!
Good work sachick! Can't wait till I'm under 65. Only 10 kgs too go :oops:

Grrr I hate when they do that!! I had an appointment to get some injections before going overseas and they doctor was like "you know you can just book in with the nurse to get those?" and took me to a different area to have the injections. I thought she was doing me a favour so I would avoid the fee but guess what, was still charged the same consultation fee grrrrr

Hope this works - http://greatist.com/fitness/50-bodyweig ... e-030612/#

Gee Whiz i annoy myself!

Im not even hungry but the 4 bubble and squeak patties sitting on the bench sitting there cooling down for FH's lunch tomorrow just screamed "Eat me" when i went into the kitchen to cut up some oranges and strawberries for lunch tomorrow for us. So which do you think i ate.....give you a clue...it wasn't the healthy stuff. So in short i ate 3 (after i already had 2 for tea!). Just after i lost the kilo i gained from last weekend.

Wow thanks for that link Miss Anne. I really don't have any excuses now. Summer Beach Body HERE WE COME!!!

@Monsoon Princess I lost 11kgs previously, and the only one who noticed was my step-mum :-/ But in the end you can go clothes shopping and not walk out frustrated and in tears, so that is a win for me.

@Adrienne, Every single day I eat something I shouldn't! I just really try to minimize the amount. e.g I am a chocolate monster, so every day I have a furry friend (those little cadbury chocolates that used to come wrapped in foil) only around 70 cal, but enough to cure my cravings for 24hrs. Just remember that it is the total change in shape over time that counts.

Looking forward to weigh in on wednesday :) I feel lighter, so fingers crossed that is represented on the scales. FH gets comes home from work on wednesday for a week and I always struggle when he is home, so a good weight loss will help keep me motivated. :bdance:

No worries Middy glad you liked it!

I am a bit all over the place at the moment. For a while there I was really watching my cals and doing A LOT of exercise but now that people are starting to comment that I've lost weight I can feel myself slacking off a bit. Grr!!! Doesn't make any sense!

On the upside, I was asking one of the trainers about any group training they run at the gym (its a 24/7 gym so no classes) and he said they had a trainee that was looking to train someone once a week for experience and asked if I would be interested. I have no idea what to expect but why not?! It's tonight so I'll let you know how I go. I am really nervous for some reason LOL, I have never really had one-on-one training :oops:

ok I am only just starting now at the end of August but maybe i can get my head in the right space ready for September :D

I used to use myfitnesspal calorie counter and it did work (when i used it) because you dont want to eat something bad and then write it down, i am going to start it again and hope i can do good:)

My major issue is exercise, it's cold and I am a sook and don't want to go out in the cold :(

Good idea, it doesn't matter when you start :)

I am loving myfitnesspal at the moment, there are a few other ladies from this thread on there also which is a great motivation. There is a thread with the usernames if you wanted to add anyone (sorry, don't know how to link to the thread!).

Exercise is hard with this weather, have you tried group classes or maybe some DVDs you can do at home?

OMG completely forgot to mention that I wore yet another of my 'old skinny' dresses today! I wanted to wear a frock because it's my birthday, so I put this on today hoping and praying I could get it done up without having too much flabbiness, and what do you know, it worked! I was so overjoyed! I went out and showed DP, and he was only slightly impressed. He said "You're doing well, almost there." So I got a little disappointed and asked where it wasn't so nice, and he responded with "The whole back section that's open." Then I asked him if that was all, and he said yes. When I told him that that was part of the dress' design, he was grinning from ear to ear and jumped up to give me cuddles and said that I looked fantastic!


congrats on the dress thats so fantastic to reach a mini goal :D
OMG men can be so silly lol

It is my birthday honey, thank you!! 28 today, officially late 20s, kinda scary!

Stormageddon, yup, you gotta watch out now :wink: haha just kidding honey! I am in serious love with MFP. And like Chelle said, there's never a bad time to start!
On that note, I've just put in my lunch count for today. Steamed vegetarian dumplings, just selected the generic one. I had around 8 of them, and apparently they're only 200 cals for 8!? WTF!? I thought it would have been so much more.

Not sure what the rest of the day holds for me food wise, but I know we're having chicken of some kind tonight as that's what DP pulled out of the freezer this morning :lol:
Time to go write assignments now though :(

xx

Woohoo Happy Birthday!! I know, how scary is it... slowly approaching 30 eek!! Hope you had a great day :heart:

Yum love dumplings... I guess when you think about it, there's not much in them so as long as they aren't fried they are pretty healthy.

I had a great session at the gym Monday night, the trainer had me using free weights (which I am always too scared to use!) and doing interval training. Felt great yesterday but eeek I am feeling it today! Was great though, lets see how I go doing it on my own.
