I’m living in the 70’s 🙂

Tuesday, 18 October 2011

So, over the last 3 weeks I have maintained my weight under 80kgs 🙂 I’m now 78 kgs and feeling it 😀 My clothes aren’t as snug!! I need a belt for my jeans! I feel fitter (apart from the occasional insomnia) and I am keeping within my pro-points allowance. Even after being sick for 2 weeks, I know I lost my appetite a little, so when I got better I definitely got the appetite back! I was worried I was going to tip the scales back up to 80kgs again and WOW! I didn’t!!

This is the first time my weight has been under 80kgs for about 5 years, so I’m feeling very confident that I can do this. A little bit of personal motivation goes a long way 😀 Seeing the result on my fancy new “Weigh Watchers Scales”, has motivated me even more! Going to walk the dog the long way rouund this afternoon and reward myself this week by trying on some new clothes. Might even have a chance at fitting a Size 14 again 🙂 (In the bum, always size 14 in the top).

So excited also, that even indulging on my nana’s ever-so-popular passionfruit slice, didn’t tip the scales. I. LOVE. PASSIONFRUIT SLICE. I only get the opportunity to have it once in a blue moon and I couldn’t say no to my lovely nana, who so kindly made it for a friends’ Tupperware Party, then presented me with a container full of it! I managed to get through it all (tough challenge that was), but I also looked at it beforehand, guiltily thinking about my new pro points allowance of 29 and just hoped that the taste was worth the possible gain….. But NO GAIN! YEAH!!!

Will update again soon 🙂

Plateaus……

PLATEAUS

Tuesday, 20 September 2011

Just when I thought i WAS getting on top of this “get fit” thing, I plateaued…. for 3 weeks I have struggled to see any sign of grams dropping off….

The times I have found it hardest to maintain my daily points is when I’m around friends and family and eating the same as everyone else….. BBQ’s, special occasions etc… I have no control over what goes into my food, so I feel a bit lost at how to count my points. I am still trying to eat smaller portions of the meals, but when I track it in my Tracker, I seem to go over my Daily Allowance every day…. from 3 points over, to 10 points over….. I really need to curb the eating again.

Now I will have the house to myself for a few weeks, no real big party plans on the horizon, so I’m hoping to regain control of my ProPoints and rejoin the fitness club.

My goal now is to have lost 10 kgs in 10 weeks. – This may seem unreal, but its what I want. On the first day of SUMMER, I want to be 72kgs!

WISH ME LUCK!!

P.S. Going for a Bike ride this afternoon 🙂
