3 months and 15 pounds later...

Monday, April 02, 2012

I logged my weight this morning at 80.4kg, which means I have lost 6.9kg, or 15lb. I know that my sickness may have contributed to my loss somewhat, but since I have weighed at 80.4 2 days in a row I am going to log it. It may be related to my sickness, but it may not, so I want to acknowldge that.

Anywho, 15lb, 3 month (well, 3 month and 2 week) side by side. The picture on the left is at my graduation. The picture on the right is from today. Excuse the hair. That is how I wake up in the morning, and I haven't left the house today so I haven't tamed it. Also, I am wearing different pants, because the black pants no longer stay up (what a shame).

The significant changes (to me) are my arms and my face. My legs are also slimmer, but they are out of shot so you will just have to believe me.

There ya go, I am actually doing it this time. Next up, 7kg lost, which is hopefully just around the corner! Then I want to get out of the 80's. But until then: LOOK AT ME LOOKING ALL SKINNY AND STUFF!!!

My love affair with carbs

Monday, April 02, 2012

I have eaten nothing but carbs and ice blocks in 36 hours. It is all I can handle right now. Cherrios are my friend.

A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!

I haven't thrown up in 24 hours! So, thats progress.

Thats all I really have to say. I have been in bed (well, mums bed. She has sky (cable) in her room and I do not) and have done nothing interesting!

Well, that makes sense

Sunday, April 01, 2012

So, I was kinda beating myself up for being lazy and sleeping the weekend away. I mean, I should have been more productive, right? Well, the reason for my lazy weekend became very clear when I woke up at 3am, started vomiting and didn't stop until 7am. Yep. Luckily I had some recorded shows (Revenge...Addicting!) to keep me company for a couple of hours!

I haven't been able to keep anything down all morning. I was snacking on dry cherrios and some water, but that didn't work for long :(

I have been to the doctor and he thinks I have a bad case of food poisoning. I am on doctors orders to do nothing for 3 days; No work, no exercise, no 'diet'. All I am to do is stay in bed (or on the couch) and eat bland foods and drink juice. I have some fun pills to stop the vomiting and some antibiotics, just incase it is a gastro infection instead of food poisoning.

Not as planned

Sunday, April 01, 2012

Today did not go as planned. It started great, with a good weigh in and plans to go to the gym.

Then I had a fight with my mum. The cliff notes version is: She said if she was rich she would hire a chef and a trainer and lose weight. I, very bluntly, told her that she doesn't have time for that. She is 5'3" and 105kg. That is nearly twice her ideal weight (60kg). In addition she smokes and drinks. This all adds up to a very unhealthy woman who is at risk of a heart attack, cancer and who knows what else. I told her this morning that it scares me how unhealthy she is, and that at the rate she is going, she might have another 10 years left. I also told her that I was scared that I would have to bury my mother before I turn 30. This all probably sounds very harsh, but after years of being subtle, it had to be said. I offered to help her lose weight, since all she can talk about is how she wishes she could lose weght like me. She flipped her lid, and since she has mental illness issues, she is good at flipping her lid. I left the house and called my Nana to go and calm her down. Nana, FYI, thinks I did the right thing by being blunt with mum. Once she calmed down she realised that I was only telling her that because I love her, and I was coming from a good place.

That threw my day. I had to be out of my house for a few hours and once I got back I was so tired I went back to bed for the rest of the day. To me, going back to bed and being in bed is lazy and I would have gotten up and gone to the gym. However I actually slept, so I figured I needed the rest and decided to take today off. No biggie! Bag is all packed for boxing tomorrow. BUT because I ran instead of doing weights on Friday, and I took today off, I haven't done weights in nearly a week. Gah.

Tomorrow will be better. I have packed my lunch and it is yummy! I have pretzels, cherrios, dumpings, 2 carrots, an orange and a pear. I have packed my gym bag and I am going to hit up the 5pm boxing class!

    Sometimes tough love is the only option. I know sometimes people don't want to hear it, and all they think is that we are preaching at them as if we are the experts, but once they realise we are only saying it because we love them they have no choice but to come around. So well done you for having the courage to speak to her honestly.
Good luck with reaching your goals. You are doing amazingly well emoticon

    Hoping your talk with your mom opened her ears and heart to what you had to share. You were right for telling her she could change and needs to.

6.6kg lost! Plus April goals

Saturday, March 31, 2012

My scale decided to get its A into G this morning and MOVE! Downwards!

I have gone back as far as I can on my spark weight tracker and I have not weighed this little in over 3 years (when I first started with spark!) In fact, I think it is closer to 5 years ago that I weighed this little (I got down to 68kg when I was 18, I'm 23 now).

Lets all dance and celebrate! Whoop whoop!!!

And now for the serious side, April goals!

Right, onwards and downwards!

Weight goal: Break 80kg. That means losing 700g! I CAN AND WILL DO THAT, even if it means losing a limb. Iím serious people.

Nutrition: I am sticking with the goal of having 5 servings of fruit and veggies a day. I am also adding 1 treat per day. Treats are my downfall! I am going to try to track 1 day per week so I can check I am in range.

Water: Still fine! Lots of hydration happening up in here. I even got myself a pretty purple and green drink bottle so I can stop reusing those plastic bottles. It holds 1L and if I can drink 2 of those a day I will be happy :)

Exercise: I will try and make 1000 fitness minutes again this month. I will continue with 3 days of weights and 2-3 days of cardio.
