my weightloss plan
eat eat eat
but the right kind of food
eat eat eat
so my baby eats and starts life with healthy attitude about food
did i tell u all how proud i am that she has no idea that you unwrap easter eggs and eat them??? she tries to eat the foil..... unlike her choc addicted one year old friends whose parents think it is funny to see their child crazy for more chocolate

i was so so proud of MYSELF last night had my dinner which was choimein without noodles or rice (so mince and veges) and then watched benji get home from parents house with a BIG bag of MORE bloody easter eggs "for jemima" and proceed to eat them right beside me, i could smell it and then leave them there beside me and i didnt even have a taste!!!
i am finally kinda focused
BUT
this morning on my porridge (which my personal trainer said is the BEST BEST BEST thing you can have for brekky it is so full of good stuff and is low GI)
well i had milo flavoured porridge with lots of sugar....
so okey pokey baby steps everyone.... i am going from NO food to LOTS of food and kinda different foods then i am used to so we are making it gradual

carrots for EVERYONE as everyone is kicking arse
i need a good boot as i weighed myself yesterday morning and will whisper what it said
............................87.1kg................ ................ shhhhhhhhhh shhshshshshshshsshsh that sucks!
oh well i am in a very good mind space... not losing weight for my birthday in 3 weeks not losing weight for my holiday in 2 weeks not losing weight for benji's birthday in july DEFINATELY not losing wieght for high school reuinion i am organising for september BUT losing weight for LIFE starting now

now to wake my daughter up - givingher quick nap before lunch backfired as she has now been asleep for at least 2 hours ho hum

Heh Ani, I know, right? Unavailable works for me - no risk that way! Never mind, it gives me something to entertain me at work, I guess

OMG barb what a loss this week. Well Done you :Carrot:

Kel how cool that you sat and didnt pig out on the easter eggs. Its easy for me cause I really dislike easter egg chocolate but give me a block........

Went to my first careres support group meeting today and was good. I thought I'd walk in feeling overwhelmed and self concious but there were quite a few people and we had coffee (we met at a cafe) and didnt even have to pay for it how cool is that???? lol.

One lady I met has a son EXACTLY like mine so it was so good to talk to someone going through the same stuff. For 7 years I have screamed for help and nothing, but finally I can see the light and today lifted a huge weight off my shoulders. I even (omg how embarrassing) cried in front of about 15 strangers. When first diagnosed, the specialists say yr kid has this wrong with them and leave you to yr own devices to get info etc... no pamphlets no nothing, they expect you to KNOW what to expect and to deal with it. Even though we go twice a year or 3 times a year to specialist, they still dont get the fact that you need support. Maybe thats something I can advocate for when I get qualified.

Anyhow wont bore you all with my day. Everyone seems to be in a pretty good mindset -------LINDOR GET BACK IN HERE . Me, I'm plodding along and at the moment thats all I aim for, not to lose, but just to keep it in sight for a brighter future once other things in my life get sorted out.

Oh yeah, one thing... was naughty this morning. I stole a cigarette of my sons friend last night and this morning lit it up. IT tasted like I had a mouthful of dry dirt. I put it out after 2 puffs and brushed my teeth. Then brushed my teeth. Then brushed my teeth. Then brushed my teeth. Then brushed my teeth. Then brushed my teeth. Yep 6 times and I could STILL taste it. yuk yuk will NEVER do it again. Its been 8 years how stupid was I to think that a puff would be ok?

Lookin good Amy! Your arms are looking leaner and other than that you're just smaller all over. Your tummy is lots smaller and I can see how baggy the pants are.

You go girl

Well, I went to the gym last night and braved the scales. I have gained 2.5kg since I last weighed in a couple of weeks ago and am now sitting at 84.3kg.

So. Time for some home truths for me.

1. I've let my old eating habits creep back. I did not lose weight by eating whatever I want! I lost weight through hard work and sacrifice. I will not lose weight if I don't get back on track.
2. If I don't do something about this now, I will end up right back where I started at almost 100kg.

Yesterday was a perfect day for me. I ate within my daily points allowance and did 40 minutes of exercise. I'm going to copy Ani and set some goals. I have 8 weeks until I go on holiday to the US and I would like to have lost more weight by then.

In order to do this I will have to stick to my diet and exercise programme. No more breaking the rules!

Permanent goals:

1. Stick to points allowance EVERY DAY!!!
2. Exercise at least 5 times a week.
3. Aim to lose 1kg per week up until my holiday.

Wish me luck!

WOW Amy - I hope you're proud of yourself because that's a massive difference!

Julia I think it's a great idea that you're setting goals for yourself. I don't mind a bit that you're copying what I do - because I'm living proof that it works . I completely agree with you about our old eating habits… they're what made us get fat in the first place, and until we permanently change them (and our thinking about them), we're going to struggle with our weight.

I had a shocker yesterday - for some reason I was in a bad mood (and I have no idea why) and I ate far too much chocolate. The annoying thing was that I didn't necessarily want it. Anyway, that's behind me now and I am going to be a lot more sensible today. I've got another day off, and have a lot to do, so hopefully I won't stuff my face with crap.

Thinking, thinking, thinking…

Should I change my goal weight to 65kg? I'm not sure what to do because I haven't been 65kg for 20 years, and it feels impossible.

BUT

When I get to 67kg I will still be 'overweight'. Do I really want to travel this long road and still be technically fat when I reach goal?

BUT

When I try to imagine myself as a Size 12 I get the giggles, and I just can't see it. Me THAT small? Ha ha ha ha ha!

AND

It will add more time to this journey. It's like running a marathon, putting in every bit off effort you've got, putting on a burst, only to watch them shift the finish line a few km down the road just as you think you're almost there.

BUT

What if I CAN do it? Isn't that what life's all about? Learning to take new risks, challenge yourself to bigger adventures, become the very best person you can possibly become… surprise yourself by discovering you can do things you think are impossible?

BUT

What if I fail? What if I set myself up for this 'ultimate' goal, and then don't make it?

BUT

What does it say about me if I don't TRY? I think I'd rather try and fail than give up without having a crack…

Right! Decision made .

Excuse my self-indulgent post. Aren't you glad you don't have to come shopping with me?

It's been 8 years for me too Vonni. I did the same thing late last year at a party. I couldn't get rid of the taste all night. And to think I used to always have that taste and smell about me! Oh and by the way I'm not a reformed smoker that preaches to everyone either!

Amy. Your looking great! Can you see yourself in a little while sticking both legs in one pant leg...........I can

Ani I don't ever think I was 65, or maybe I was there for a little while but not long enough to register how it feels! I always remember being in the 80's. If I were you I would get to 67 and then see how you feel within yourself. Maybe that'll be enough. I'm aiming for 70 for now and will do the same when I get there, I'd like to have a couple of kg's to play with though. I'm still overweight at 70 but ok at 68 Can a couple of kg's really make that much of a difference!

Good luck Julia, but I don't really think you need it. You've come this far, you just need to get back on track. If you had put on weight right back at the beginning would you have given up? Yeah? Not now though, you've know what you want and how to get it and that will always be with you. Look back at all the things you've dealt with along this journey. You've come a very long way and you're a different person now to what you were when you started this.

I miss Lindor. Where are you?

65 sounds so tiny.. LMAO. Go for it Ani.. you'll make it there eventually, and imagine that! I'd have to take a photo of the scale, since it wouldn't last long!

if you aim for 65kg and you never get there you will be pretty damn small anyway! what's that saying if you aim for the moon and miss you will still be in the stars?? i dont know but u get what i am trying to say
go for it WHAT except FAT have you got to LOSE?

i am not in a great mindframe at the moment..... but not giving up
i think i am just TOTALLY pissed at try try try trying to lose weight and not really getting anywhere.... i would totally not care if i was the same weight and not trying i would also not be THAT pissed if i put on weight coz i was not trying BUT i do deny myself, i do think about what goes in my mouth and still it feels i am getting nowhere

CONFUSION i weigh more than i have all year and my skirt is too big??
very frustrating coz i am inbetween sizes, when will the fashion world realise there is a whole market of people that is size 15??? humphy humph hmph ho humphy!

vonni it is SO great you found that support group, support with people of like minds in same situations is priceless.... i am sick to death of getting "support" and "help" from people about baby stuff when they are in a whole different mindset.......

amy i cant believe that is the same top, i actually sat there and thought she should have worn the same clothes. then i read your little bit downthe bottom omigosh! look your boobs are now out further than your belly!

julia - i hate that you are so right - you didnt lose weight by eating what you wanted you did kick arse and stuck to the plan....... i need to do same thing.... annoying thing is i dont want to count i dont have time to count i want foolproof snacks I NEED to drink more water

morning tea everyday of 3 rice crackers and a tin of tuna
porridge for brekky (no milo on it heheheehe)
no carbs (or basically none) for dinner
trying to cut out processed food for me and jemima
and generally not eating crap - ho hum
