Well I pulled out the tape measure today and measured myself. Last time i measured was 2 weeks ago...and ive lost now:

  • bust : 2 centimetres
  • waist : 6cm
  • Hips : 5 cm
  • thighs : 1cm

So very pleased with that. I think thats pretty awesome within 2 weeks. Altho I must admit i wasnt totally surprised as the last few days I have noticed my clothes are really getting baggy. Nice and quiet at guessing everyone is watching the AFL grand final

And its saturday yay yay the weekend after this shift sooooooooo looking forward to a nice quiet relaxing weekend.

Okies time to wander off =]

had a bit of a revelation today - i DON'T WANT a relationship at the moment. Okies i dont really have a choice either...but was funny...have chatted a bit to a girl online...shes very nice and whatever and was talking to my friend Jody and told her i gave her the cold shoulder and made it obvious im not interested. And then i said to concerned of getting involved with anyone on any level and losing my focus on my weight loss. And then I told her...besides im more interested in my real for the chick whose had numerous online relationships this is a big thing. Jody then said she noticed I seemed more content then in the past with the fact im single and doing my own thing. Its not that I dont wanna be in a relationship - I do...but for one thing i want it real...preferably someone in Adelaide...but not now once im more into this weight loss journey. I think its important first I totally get my head around this weight loss...and get my social life back and having fun...before I even think in that direction. And I feel good about not thinking I need someone...and it makes me realise how important this weight loss and that it IS different to previous times and i AM here for the long haul! :)

well all is good again today. completing on points have eaten 11.5 points...dinner is 8 points and my snack 3 points & i also had a piece of fudge 1.5 points.....which puts me under for the day by 3 points.

Im wearing one of my new shirts and my team leader just said to me ... even your new shirts are starting to get too big...weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee yay me !!!!

I talked in yahoo to one of the girls on the ww forum last night and promised i would upload some photos this look out for some pics this weekend !

I feel really good today...i feel as if this week i can have a real solid loss...its only day 3 but i been real good no eating when i get home from work, have had my 2 litres of water first think in the morning. And last time i did this i had a big loss now im not expecting a big loss of 3.2 kilos but am aiming for between 1kilos and 1.5 kilos. Altho i try not to set myself up for disappointment and aim for just 500 grams to 1 kilos.

Not much going on this weekend i may walk around to mums again on sunday. And possibly going out to dinner with the parents sunday night. Okies back to work lalalallalalalalal its a good day!!!!

Wednesday, September 27, 2006

Well I did it! I booked the accomodation for the trip to the goldcoast next march. This is where ill be staying so now I have a date 29th March to lose in total 31 ive lost 11.3 kilos now so 19.7 kilos left to lose which I think is completely doable. I have booked to arrive there 29/3/06 and leave to come home 3/4/07 which would be 5 days. Which would be a real nice break without being too long. So now my goal by melbourne day is to lose another 4.6 kilos....and by xmas day to lose 9.6 kilos. so its action jackson !!! But all are do able goals i think (remind me of this if i dont make any of my goals) Theres not really much else to say...ohhh i ate a meat pie today! Now if my sister is reading this she will laff cos i loveeeeeeee meat pies...but it was my first since going on ww and i worked it into my points (ill stillhave 3.5 points spare with eating it) and yanno it was nice but was nothing to rave about. Okies thats all for today...enjoy ur night all =]

Tuesday, September 26, 2006

well a supoer quick post cos i was post more from work but another loss - this week 800 grams taking me to a total of 11.3 kilos which im more then happy with - till later =]

Well im back,,,,and think i have made a exciting decision ! The girls on the ww forum are planning to meet up on the gold coast next march (so 6 months away) and im seriously considering going, i mean by then i should have lost another 20 kilos. So whilst the plane trip still wouldnt be greatly comfortable i think its prolly completely do able. And i LOVE the gold coast I went there 10 years or so ago and had a great time. I loved movie world and it would be nice to go there again and of course do some shopping. I think Ive pretty much decided im going,,,,jsut neeed to find out if we are staying at a specific hotel or what. I dont care if we all stay at hotel of our own choice im kinda independant and like doing my own thing as well so this will be cool. And the thought of it is real exciting...and would be a great goal to help with keeping motivated and focussed with the weight loss.

Last time i went away was when i went to sydney (apart from a trip to streaky) when i was depressed over Ang still in what should have been a fun weekend i was sad and mopey all weekend...but thats 2 years ago...and now i say....hell let me go and have some fun !!!!

okies back to that thing called work =]

And its so much better already my necks not sore today and no headache =]

wooooooo hoooooooo !!!!

my first compliment today !!!! Was at work eating one of my ww desserts and my old team leader came over and asked me if ive been losing weight...i told her yes and she turned around and said you can really tell. Also coming into work today i came to the conclusion my fave jumper is too big ! LOL especially across my shoulders its kinda getting to the point of ridiculous lol So tomorrow i will drop into target and best & less and hopefully pick up a couple of tops. I would prefer to not spend too much money but at the same time i think hell i deserve to look good !

Friday, September 15, 2006

its amazing how 5 days ago my headspace was all "here we go again i quit" and now today i feel more committed to the weight loss then ever. My jeans are feeling lose again and i have been spot on with my food AND my water. Ive done the ww thing ebfore and never really focused on the water im now convinced its a big part of it. I am hoping for a good solid loss this week but i dont wanna end up disappointed so 500 grams and i will be happy. Laying in bed last nite thinking (and omg i have been freezing at nite time the last few nites) that realistically....i would like to lose 20 kilos every 6 months. Which would meanmid 2008 i would be totally at a weight id be more then happy with...admittedly once i get closer it will be harder to do. So febuary is 6 months...but i actually am gonna aim for my first 20 kilo loss by xmas but if i dont by febuary 1. which basically puts me at 13.3 kilos to lose in approximately 14 a challenge but completely doable. I bid on some clothes today on ebay...hopefully i get them...a pair of new cargo pants and a dressy top for going out. Okies i gotta get back to work...enjoy your weekend all =]

welll bad news...well not really bad and not unexpected lol

i knew i was building up to a NEED (not a want a need understand lol) for KFC and sunday nite just 36 hours before weigh in i gave in and had it...and had a lil more then i should have and that with not exercising the last 4 days of the week and no water for 3 or 4 days i had a 400 gram gain :(

Actually not that bad...i expected the loss..and if i didnt have that loss i know next week i would have. but ive been back on track since monday now. And tonight i will exercise a lil and tomorrow will do a full exercise thingy...

When you know WHY you gained it really is not stressful...its when u dont know why.

My pulled muscles all seem settled now...a lil sore still but not much. Altho it really makes you the wonders of a personal trainer altho at this point i dont think im ready for a gym...altho soon i will to go swimming.

Im kinda bored with my frozen meals at the moment but dont like diverting away from them as they really give me portion control which i really need

Okies out of here ~ toodles

Saturday, September 09, 2006

well what a blah couple of days. Yanno u do the right thing and it still comes and bites you on the ass ! I changed the arm exercises with weights slightly the other day and turns out i pulled muscles. The muscles under your rib cage and they freaking hurt. Even when i walk they kinda vibrate LOL And cos of it ive used it as a excuse not to drink water (dont even ask the theory behind that) and didnt drink water and today i been picking. So as of tomorrow back on track with that. ive prolly still been well within points using points not used during the week. And for the first time its been like...hmmm kfc would be good about now....i read on the ww forum...that breaking 10 kilos is quite a wall to break down that many give up around now. but im over 3/4 to that goal so no way i am...tomorrow i will get back on the water.

Hope everyones weekend is going good...i just put a colour on my hair hopefully it turns out

Wednesday, September 06, 2006

Isnt it great how good you feel when your weight is in control. When my weight is out of control...i "hide" i consume myself in online life and consume myself with food...that after a while doesnt even taste that great. Then when i get my weight loss in control I wanna dress nicer...I wanna spend money on me...on hair... and then it even extends just to wanting to do more things wanting to not sit in front of the tv or computer so much. And as im discoverring its even leading me to plan more not just for today but for 12 months time...2 years time...things that normally i wouldnt even think about.

My jeans are really getting looser im starting to really notice it...which is grand after wearing clothes growing tighter everyday to be in loose clothes and to realise they are getting looser is SUCH a good feeling.

And now its even amazing that my knees are hurting less. The waist on my jeans are getting looser but im not noticing a difference in my thighs at this point. I just posted on the ww site for some suggestions for exercises to pinpoint the thighs. Will be good when my bathers fit me and i can go swimming. Okies tea time so off i go :)

Tuesday, September 05, 2006

Well weigh in over and done with and it went very well ;) I actually had a loss of 1.3 kilos so as its TOM and I had 2 celebrations last week im very impressed with that, as I walked in I was mumbling to myself lol 500 grams please 500 grams LOL so that gave me a loss of 1.3 kilos. I feel like I have things figured out now things are clicking. I set a mini goal for end of september to lose 4.6 3.3 kilos left yay

okies ill write more later after the presentation at work :)

Well its now later in the day...i still cant really say whats going on blah but i really wont know anything definite till start of October so shall put work out of my mind (well cept for the fact im at work lol)

The challenge this week for BLC was to do some thing 3 times thats out of my comfort zone. I prolly woulda liked to do that and ride a bike...except I dont have one,,,,thats something I do need to get tho I think id enjoy that.

Decided sunday I am going into town. Prouds have some gorgeous fiorelli watches on special for $69.99 so think I will get one as my 5 kilos reward and I mite go wander in the bookshop too and pick up a book or two. And then on monday I am getting foxtel IQ installed wooooo hoooooo i can start recording shows like gilmore gurls and yessssssssss jaxx huge gilmore gurls fan, and also huge wills n grace cracks me up

Okies off to work I go hugsssssssssssssssssssssssss

PS thanks for all the comments i LOVE getting them !!!!

Monday, September 04, 2006

Well weigh in day tomorrow. Not really sure how ill go, ive been good this week (if u exclude a slice of cake, 4 lollies and 2 glasses of champagne) but its also TOM sooooooo no idea how ill go i do feel kinda bloated, am hoping for a small loss still tho.

Have had a good weekend, yesterday was lazy and unproductive lol today ive been busyshopping, cleaning etc and this evening been relaxing in front of the tv watching gilmore gurls. ( loveeeeeeeeeeeeee that show) Tomorrow at work have a presentation to go to regarding restructuring etc have a strong sneaky suspicion about what were gonna be told (not the best news but not the worst either) ill fill u all in tomorrow more. This week i am also going looking for something from the jewellery store for my 5 kilos award...will see what i find. Okies gonna go watch just shoot me before ni all :)

Saturday, September 02, 2006

Well the winds are a changingggggggggg lol

Funny how things change...people may or may not know that i chat...being a lesbian i chat in a gurls chat room...and in actually fact run the girls chat room server (called Femme Fantaziez lol) anyway the last few weeks ive noticed ive been pulling away..either in there bored today i actually got to the point where i thought i should pull the server down then decided not too for the sake of the gurls. Its easy when you arent happy with yourself to lock yourself in the chat world...dont get me wrong im sure id never give it up entirely ive made some really good friends there...but im getting to a point now where i dont want or feel the need of it. I do graphics for chat and i dont actually need to be in the room to do it i can do it via my internet explorer. The good thing about them is i find doing graphics is so relaxing and consuming that i forget to eat especilly in the afternoon at snacktime which is a good thing. But anyway im really getting to the point of wanting to do other things. But i dont feel confident enuff to just go out and meet more people etc, but im really wanting to get myself more on focussing on me and self improvement...but i guess cutting back on chat its highlighting to me that a lot my friendships are based online. So in a very strange mood...not exactly negative...but kinda like somethings wrong...but its not like i can go this is whats wrong...maybe its just one of the changes and things i am learning in this journey.

Okies time to go

Friday, September 01, 2006

So yesterday didnt quite go to after the cake after work we ended up going out for a few a couple of champganes later and i was ticking over hahhaha but all is good cos i9t waas fun and not often i get to have a few drinks. The rest of the time till weigh in should be safe except for sunday nite which am going out for fathers day and the problem parents live on counter meal kind of tucker. And we are going out to dinner at one of the pubs...and so my choices is extremely fact i think the only relatively healthy option is lasagne but it has lots of cheese in it so not too healthy they do ahve a yummy pasta is too die for ,,,,, but its cream based and so i will avoid it.

Tania - yes yes yes to lunch at glenelg soon...sounds great to me - specially with these nicer days we are having !!! Everything else is going good...i plan to spend a bit of time outside this weekend...even if it means sitting out in the courtyard reading...such nice weather we are having !
