Good job on the loss Isles!
We are having the storm now. White out conditions. I have the wood stove going in case we lose power. This is one heck of a winter.
Katt, soak up some rays for those of us in the frigid north!
I like the stones in the jar except I do not have a goal weight and I need to take it small goals one at a time.
If I exercise I can not think of calories burned because it seems so lame for all the work. I need to think of getting my body strong and healthy.

Good Morning...

wannaskipandlaugh: Just thinking about your post that your husband was interested in (what you eat and what you have to do to get rid of it) I wonder if that message was geared towards men? They do think differently from us girls and maybe that might click with them (and of course someone will be trying to make some money from that idea too LOL)
I agree !!

Well, Katt, I am not sure you know what "cold" is....What do you think, Ubee??? Minnesota/Wisconsin cold or New Zealand cold????

Congrats, KerrBearMom on the great loss!!!


I am rested up now...slept for 9 hours!!!! We are going to get those 60 mile an hour winds again...so ....I will be tired and crabby!! I think wind could be used as a torture method!!!!

Later...

Right ... time for a catch up ..

WANNA - I have to get my pebbles today .. I have some already .. but they are in use around the house as decorations lol .. so I will just get myself some more instead ... and I need to see how many pebbles there will be to get my vase sizes right too lol .. but that is the goal this week to get that sorted Men most definitely think of weight loss as differently than woman I think .. LARRY .. WHAT DO YOU THINK?? He seems to be able to eat anything he wants really and still maintain or lose .. drives me nuts lol .. on the plus side he seems to have reached a plateau and he is getting as frustrated as I have gotten when I have hit it too lol .. I shouldnt laugh .. but I do enjoy the fact that he has finally slowed down so maybe now he has to think a little better about the food intake

MOUNTAIN - Its just in retail .. at a knitting shop ... not that I can knit .. well .. I can .. just cant cast on or off lol .. so I have a 12 foot scarf in the making which I ran out of wool for or it would be longer lol ... I do cross stitch as my creativity ... but I think its more about sales. Jobs in NZ are out there .. if you want them .. I am one of the lucky ones I think .. I have never really had a problem getting a job, not always my ideal one .. but its a job. I have been in retail off and on for over 20 years now, the last 13 years has been either as manager or assistant manager, so I can usually get back into it again easily ... I still dont know what I want to be when I grow up .. but Im thinking of going back to school .. just not sure which qualification area I want to add to (I have degrees/certificates already in - Child Psychology, Consumer Law, Business Management, Office Administration, Journalism, Clerk/Typist, Music ... I like learning lol) ... sooo will see how it goes .. second interview in a few hours then will know this week. I think a lane change at any age is brilliant! My grandad went back to school when he was in his 60s to learn keyboard/piano .. even though he had been playing for years .. but he wanted a certificate lol.

KENDRA - you are doing great ... I am looking forward to your weigh in next week .. you seem to have gotten into a good rhythm

ISLES - Good job this week I think you are right .. we dont get that cold where I am .. but I think its similar down the bottom of the country .. FERRIS?? I havent been there .. bad me really .. I do want to see the South Island (other than Christchurch, which I flew to, and Picton, which is the ferry stop and I just spent the day there before catching the ferry back to Wellington lol). But I know that down the bottom they do get pretty darn cold.... lots of snow.

UBEE - I think the jar is ideal for you .. but maybe 3 jars instead of 2 ... keep to the mini goal weight for the first 2 .. but then as each goal is reached tip those ones into the 3rd jar as the "overall" jar .. actually .. I think that is what I am going to do instead of having a really big couple of jars which heaps of stones in ... I will get 2 smaller jars for the mini goals and then have a bigger jar with the overall loss in I might get different colours of stones so that each challenge will be shown .. humm .. got me thinking now lol ..

KERR - Wow .. fantastic loss for you this week! Well done! I really think you are going to do incredible on this challenge




Just up a little earlier today so that I can get ready for my second interview for the job I interviewed for the other day. After I off to visit my bff and goddaughter ... taking the baking I did yesterday round with me lol .. I made these yummy cupcakes .. I have called them Coconut Butter Cupcakes .. but there is no dairy in them lol .. and each one is less than 200 calories (my other ones before I tweaked the recipe were closer to 300). She likes my baking so its a way for me to get them out of the house lol.

Really proud of everyone this week .. even for those that didnt lose as much as they hoped .. or that might have gone up .. or maintained .. its all about sticking to it regardless and you are .. so GREAT JOB!!!

Hi all!

I was feeling pretty annoyed at myself since I last posted, because it was TOM and although I felt my clothes were a tiny bit looser, I didn't see it on the scale. So imagine my happiness this morning when I stepped on the scale (two days before my usual Monday weigh in, but I'm so pleased I'm counting it as today).

START WEIGHT: 278
GOAL WEIGHT: 250

Week 16 - APR 21 - APR 27:

I've been going to the gym for 6 weeks now, but this has been my first week back at work since my holidays. And I've been getting up at 5.50 to get to the gym just after 6. I am very much not a morning person, and it's been hard, but on the whole enjoyable. I find I have so much more energy for the day. I also saw someone who I haven't seen since I was at my lowest (258) and I've put on 20lbs since then. And yet she insisted that I looked like I'd lost weight. I think she's crazy, but it made me feel better about backtracking. And now I'm really heading in the right direction again!

Still a bit cold down here- nowhere near US levels of course, but I'm still bitter about not having my summer! It can get pretty cold down this part of the SI, and we get a bit of snow (there are usually about two days a year I can't get out of the house to get to work, which I don't complain too much about!) but it's pretty mild in general.

Mountain_walker & Katt- I am a huge supporter of career changes at any age. I think one of the great things about this day and age is how much more of an option it is compared to earlier generations. I teach at a uni, and we have quite a few 'mature' learners, who I admire so much and who have this great perspective on things, having already been out in the world, compared to my fresh-out-of-highschool students. So I truly believe it's never to late to learn a new skill or change career paths, if it makes you happy!

And now I'm off to have lunch- a new Mexican place has opened up nearby, and since we cook Mexican about 4 days a week, it'll be nice to have a day off and have it made for us. Super excited, as it's the sort of place I don't have to worry too much about going beyond my calories.

TIME - Great attitude ... keep it up Im sure its going to be like this for a lot of us at some point in the challenge ... so keep at it

FERRIS - Great job! So will pop it in the chart for you ... instead of posting the chart weekly Im going to post it every 4 weeks and it will show the body % too ... so its definitely a great addition Sorry to hear you still arent getting the summer down there ... making me wonder when is a good time to travel that way if I wanted a little holiday lol .. I definitely enjoy the heat when I have it .. and in Wellington its not too hot most of the time so its very enjoyable ... Still not sure what Im doing career-wise .. but will be happy with whatever it ends up being lol ...




Had a lovely couple of days ... my daughter is staying with us this weekend while the kids are staying with the partners family and we had a great mum/daughter day yesterday (which is a rare thing to just have the two of us). We did some cooking yesterday .. I made the filling for the filo pastry I was going to be using today .. and then we made some chocolate chip cookies (I know I know .. but its not me that eats them so thats fortunate lol). I had a terrible day with food yesterday though .. not overeating or eating wrong .. just couldnt get in the mood to eat .. so I ended up only having about 600 of my 1600 calorie target ... but I think I made up for it today .. ok .. maybe not .. but when Im hot I really dont get hungry :/

Today we had my bff, her sister and my goddaughter come around for an early tea (or late lunch lol) .. I made quite and array (with my daughters help lol) .. so we had bbq steak (I didnt lol), chicken on skewers (I had these), pork chops (nope) ... vegetable kebabs (for me courgette, capsicum, red onion ... and the others had the same but with mushroom & tomato) ... a lovely big salad, some baby potatoes ... and then my daughter had her first go at making sourdough bread rolls which turned out great and we all enjoyed one ... oh and the filo wraps (chicken, feta, cottage cheese, capsicum, onion, garlic, honey, soy, sesame seeds, parmesan) ... I made dessert too ...
- yummy fruit salad (nectarines, peaches, strawberries, grapes, pear, apple, plums), a naughty and very boozy tiramisu (sp?) ... I mainly had the salad .. and a couple of dessertspoons of the other lol ..

Was a lovely day outside ... had to move the chairs to the shade cos it was getting a little hot (sorry peeps!) ... but it was such a nice day .. was sad it ended .. but we have had a nice evening together (me hunny & ash), now we are just going to have a cuppa before bed (green tea for me!), I have just given Ashleigh a facial, and my hunny a foot massage ... so now they get to make the cuppa lol ... tomorrow we are off to a photo shoot location to see if it will be suitable for a shoot next weekend that we have booked .. then we drop my daughter off and home again. Monday is a holiday for the Wellington area as its Anniversary weekend for us so will be nice to spend the day with my hunny

I hope everyone else has had a lovely weekend Talk to you tomorrow some time Almost weigh in day .. Im hoping that my bad start to the week & TOM will have been counteracted by yesterday and today so my weigh in on Monday will be a good one too lol ....

I can't believe I forgot to say how awesome everyone's doing when I posted yesterday!

Am completely thrown off my routine this morning- I'm supposed to meet a friend for brunch after the gym (it's how I justify having a meal out- I've worked out beforehand!) but when I got to the gym it was closed! Bit worried something has happened to one of the lovely people who work there, and also a bit annoyed because it's completely thrown off my day!

Katt- the food you post about always sounds so yummy! I'm jealous! Feb is usually a great time for visiting the SI- generally once the kids are in school the weather turns nice, which seems pretty unfair for them! It's a good place to visit- I'm Wellington born and raised myself, but love it down here all the same!

Love everyone's pebble jars idea- I hope everyone's keeping a photo record of it too! How amazing to watch one jar empty as the other fills!
