Lost 1.1kg! This is despite no exercise for over 2 weeks. I think it's just been the excitement of the last few days :)

Great job, hbm and oohlalisha! Well done!

Chelle, isn't it easier without the men around!? DP is the partially the reason I have eaten so much ice cream this week. I could have said no as well but, um, mint choc chip sundae, how can I say no to that!? :lol:

AFM, AF arrived this morning. I gained 500g, and yeah I am kicking myself because while I was sick last week, I ate LOADS of ice cream. Because I was so sick, I had no energy to do anything. So I'm hoping that this week I'll be much better and have put a two week ice cream ban on myself. This is going to be deadset difficult as I have had it so often again.
Feeling heaps bloated and yuck with AF in town, more than usual. Arrived two days early too, which is a PITA but also means it will be over two days early too.
Tomorrow I will be meal planning for the next two weeks - something I haven't done for SUCH a long time. Not good but it's just been impossible.
Tan - Being sick made me not care too much about MFP. I wasn't logging every day, I would only partially log meals and then finish off the next day. No more of that!

Today was my first day back doing stuff though. I went to uni and it just about killed me. I am exhausted. Thankfully have tomorrow off to finish the assignment that's due Friday. Not much to do on it thankfully. Had one due yesterday too, and have another due next week. Fun. And. Games. I'm terrible though and tend not to eat when I'm stressed, throwing my metabolism out and generally putting on weight. Must not do this this time.


Oh it is soooo much easier without them around! FH has a very physical job so he doesn't need to watch what he eats but we both know that we can't have any treats in the house because we will eat them so that works well for us. Out of sight, out of mind ;)

Grr not much you can do after being sick and now AF, 500g is nothing, I'm sure you will be back on track in no time. Sounds like ice cream is your weakness?! Could you try some healthier alternatives to help wean yourself off it? Maybe some yogurt with berries? You would still get the sweetness but way less calories. Or light jelly with a little yogurt? Those little dessert yogurts are really yummy too and a good portion size if you felt like something sweet after dinner.

AFM, I have just started a group training session a couple of times a week to help give me an extra push. I was in a good habit of going to the gym 2-3 times a week plus walking/jogging most nights but hopefully this will help tone up as well and maybe lose another couple of pesky kilos.

Yay for all the losses this week ladies! I am going to add to the trend. I lost 500gm. :D

Down to 72.0. Even though my journey has been slow with plenty of stops and starts, I am still 8.2kg lighter than I was this time last year.

I would like to be around 70 by the end of September.

My bestie is coming to visit me in November. First time I will be able to go dress shopping! Hoping to be 67ish at that point. That will be my lightest in my adult life

I just bought a Cudo deal for unlimited group training sessions at The Fitness Shed... so excited! They have boxing, CT training, boot camps and other stuff. I'm hoping this will help motivate me and make a difference in my weight loss!

Hey guys, glad to hear of some awesome weight losses and fitness goals set. Bit nervous for my weigh-in but i wont look at the scales till Sunday

Smashed it out today with an hour of personal training 500+ cals burnt :)
Literally sweat was dripping off me 15 mins into the session (I looked so attractive :roll: )

Gonna feel sore tomorrow but it will be worth it in 3 months time :)

Thanks stormageddon!

But I swear I set myself up for failure every time. I was doing well until I went to the surgeon yesterday about my knee. After telling me he would do surgery to fix it last visit, he now tells me that the 'die has been cast', and that at the age of 23 I should never walk more than a few hundred meters, twist, run etc etc.

If that wasn't depressing enough he then looked me up and down and said 'and you could do something about your weight.' I am a size 10-12 and never really saw my weight as a health issue but more a self esteem issue. He made me feel 100kg and I went home cried, drank a choc milkshake and a bottle of coke that evening. And then hated myself.
So easy how you can go from a massive high, and one person says one thing, and your crushed.

That is disgusting! you and I are the same weight! I am a 12 and I and most definitely not overweight! I am most certainly a healthy weight range.

IO am so angry at that doctor, he must prefer bones to curves but as a medical professional he should know that you are a healthy weight! :evil: :evil:

I hope you don't believe him Middy?

That is really awful :( It really surprises me that people in the medical profession can be so blunt with their comments about weight! You would think of all people they would be sensitive.

Thanks for your support guys. I agree with you stormageddon about them not appreciating curves. I mean I have size F boobs! So definitely not a bag of bones :)

Congrats on your loss by the way. I hope I'm 71 next week!

Pain is beauty, beauty is pain!!


Wow, everyone is doing really well lately. AFM, I feel great this week. A few people in work have commented on how slim I'm looking lately which has really given me a boost. Was a little naughty this evening again, FH and I had some pizza, Darrell Lea Rocky Road & a glass of vino.....but that's ok because we are both going to the gym in the morning.

I decided in work this week to add a link in my "Favourites" of my wedding dress - that way, when I have a sugar craving, I click on the link and tell myself how much better I will look in my dress if I don't have those biscuits with my coffee :lol: :lol:

Well done everyone!

I suck, I know I disappeared off the face off the earth (and MFP) and I've been slack and lazy.

I've joined the gym again, and starting tomorrow I will be back on MFP sorting out my calories. While I've been on my teaching rounds I've been on the wagon for lunch and dinner, I've been off the wagon with a row (or two) of Cadbury bubbly every night while planning.

However, stuff's getting real with a date set, and I've set my heart on a dress that will look ridiculous if I don't shift this weight.

So.. here we go again!

Jumping in because MFP tells me it's easier to lose weight with friends! :)

4 years ago when I moved to QLD I was 55kg, the smallest I've been in my "adult" years. Sadly back then I remember still considering myself fat. Contentedness set in and I've plateaued at 70kg. I'm disappointed, but I can see why it happened and where I need to improve. I'd love to get back to 55kg by the time I get married next year, and I'm going to have this as my extreme goal. For my realistic goal, I'm aiming for 60kg.

Both FH and I work in fast food, and we both do shift work. It is absolutely terrible for our eating habits. This is where I've gained my weight, it's the thinking that "well Colin isn't going to be home so I'll grab something at work or on the way home". Bad bad bad! We've vowed not to touch the food we sell, or any other fast food for that matter. Our waistlines will thank us, and so will our bank account. I only remember a week back, but so far I have gone at least 7 days without touching fast food :)

I don't like breakfast, food in my stomach in the morning makes me feel very nauseous. I seem to be able to stomach an Up & Go drink though, so I have been having one a morning to "start my metabolism". If I'm home alone for lunch or dinner I'll have a small piece of fish and a small basic salad. If FH is home, we'll have something like veggie sausages and cous cous, or spaghetti without meat. We don't quite have an expansive menu just yet! :P We're not trying to be vegetarian, but rather reduce the amount of meat we eat while increasing the amount of veggies. Muesli bars or light crackers for snacks, and water or meal replacement shakes for beverages.

I don't know if it's working, or if my scales are being odd, but I weighed myself today at 67kg. I started this month at 70kg! I still don't exercise much yet; I have grand plans to go swimming after work (I've already got my swimming kit organised!) or cycling (still need to brush my bike off). It's still too cold for my liking to go swimming (outdoor pool...) and cycling (well, Toowoomba should be enough of a reason). I know I know, excuses excuses... But give me some better weather and I can get off my butt and get started, and once I'm started it will be all good!

But I am also trying to get a new job, I'm desperately unhappy in my current job. When I was an admin assistant, at 55kg, it was mostly sedentary work, but I got an hour for a lunch break which I used to walk around the city. I drank a lot of water as the water on tap was lovely, there was fresh fruit delivered to the office every day and I was able to have cheap sushi for lunch. Now in my current job, I don't get a lunch break, the tap water is disgusting so I have to drink bottled, there's no fresh fruit and the sushi is expensive :(

Well done to everyone this month! Keep it rolling!
Illikaeri, welcome to the club! It looks like you've identified your problem so thats the first step to fixing it. Good luck and stick around as heaps of people on here are very inspirational and you can get lots of idea here.

Well girls, its been a while since getting on here but this morning i am doing the happy dance! :bdance: Clear the room! I am doing lots of happy dancing today :bdance:

Jumped on today and i am 86.9kg!!!!! Hey its only by 100g under 87 but i will take that thankyou very much and dance with it! Finally i am on the move again (About time!) after taking 3 weeks "off" to try get off this plateau of 88kg for ages. I might actually make my revised goal of 85kg by the 20th October. I am going for my dress fitting on thursday this week, and i was hoping to get down to 80kg before this week but it just hasnt happened but my dress is lace up so if i do happen to loose a bit more it should be okay

So doing the happy dance right now :bdance:

Yay Adrienne - that is fab! How good does it feel to enter into the next kilo! yay

I don't have too much to report. I am back down to my ticker weight after a few yo yo weeks so feeling good.

I have my final fitting on Friday so working out like a maniac and watching each calorie like a hawk.

But, something just dawned on me this morning.

We...us females...should give ourselves more credit and stop being so harsh on ourselves! I think it is so easy to get upset over a small loss and become disheartened..but the most important part is that we are all actively choosing to live a healthy and active life - surely we should be happy about that!

I don't know where this all came from...but I guess I am 6 kilos kilos down from where I was 1.5 years ago and 4.5 kilos down from when I joined WC...and yet sometimes I feel bigger than ever. I realised then that I have come a long way and 6 kilos is a big deal and I should be ecstatic and not always focusing on the negative!

Anyway, enough of that - just wanted to share my thoughts with you today - and to say to everyone - congrats on living a healthy and active life!!!!! :heart:

Great work sweetheart!
That is an excellent point - don't forget how far you have come, it can be easy to get caught up in calorie counting/watching the scales but don't forget to take a step back and say "damn, I'm looking good". LOL. Or something along those lines :wink:
