The skinny friend, now fat

Day 2

Day 2 went well. Having this blog is helping me. Reading the supportive comments really inspire me to do well. I made myself do an exercise dvd yesterday. I hated it. Ten minutes in I wanted to sit down and watch it instead. But I forced myself to do it, exercising harder instead of stopping, and I made it! 25 mins of exercise that included belly exercises (which I hate).

My diet yesterday went like this;


  1. 2 weetbix w/ low fat milk and sugar
  2. black tea 2 sugar

Mid morning

small Skinny cappucino 2 sugar


  1. 1/4 of a parmesan/onion breadstick(no butter) filled with salad veg incl. tablsp avocado
  2. mug chicken noodle soup made with water
  3. 1 small bunch seedless grapes, handful of blackberries

Afternoon snack

1 cup of mixed banana, red pawpaw, crimson grapes


  1. small bbq chicken breast no skin, cut up with salad (lettuce, tomato, onion, cucumber) 25ml honey mustard dressing
  2. 1/4 parmesan/onion breadstick filled with salad veg incl avocado plus few strips of chicken breast
  3. black tea and sugar
  4. small bunch of grapes as snack later on

Haven’t really felt hungry. I still sit around too much.  Went to bed feeling satisfied with what I’d eaten. Made the mistake of weighing myself this morning, too soon, I know. Years ago I would have started seeing a change in the scales the day after restricting my diet. My stomach still looks the same. My goal for Day 3 is to walk – seeing as I hated doing the exercise dvd. I will park my car further away and I’ll have no choice but to walk. Am craving a cappucino.
