I've been feeling rather grizzly on the Cura this round. Weight isn't coming off fast enough for me, and it's harder to manage on 450 calories when it is bitterly cold outside. I think this is when you really miss that fat in the diet, not to mention the carbs. So I am less active, inside, closer to the kitchen, which leads to thoughts...
I've actually cheated a little, and I've been thinking of finishing at 3 weeks instead of 6. Grizzle, moan whinge, hold on! I've dropped 15lbs in 18 days! On what planet is that something to whinge about?
Do you know, I have been talking myself out of keeping on towards my goal, which is actually close enough that it is within sight.
Sometimes my inner child is just a brat.
Thank heavens for the warm pool, she quite likes that. I've scheduled entirely water exercise this week because I missed my Zumba session yesterday.
And I notice that my sleep is so very much better. I got 9 hours last night. I must remember this, eating less really does seem to help with sleep.
Have a great day Sparkadees, and keep your eye on the prize.

DH burnt out the food processor and I have been thinking whether to replace it.
On my travels I came across the vitamix. Apparently it cooks your soup for you.
This really caught my attention as I make soups a lot. And smoothies.
My trusty stick blender is still working, but it won't last forever.
Anyone out there with a vitamix? I'd like to know what you think of them.
Wondered if you have one, Watermellen, Queen of Soups?

DH & I joined friends for dessert last night. He had some, I didn't. They drank wine, I drank water.
I hadn't felt like sitting through a whole meal with them, but felt I could ignore as they ate dessert.
It was fine, and I had fun catching up. But actually had some extra food when I went home, so I guess I was feeling deprived deep down, or I was triggered. Anyway, the damage is nothing compared to if I had eaten along with them!
in fact there is no damage, except that I didn't lose any weight this morning.
We are all in our fifties, women who were at highschool together, and it was so funny as we talked about our fitness regimes.
There was a great recounting of our programmes, and then there was the making of muscles. We didn't actually get to arm wrestling, but it has been known to happen!
To look at us you wouldn't think that butter would melt in our mouths...

I was going to say losing again, but that,s not what it feels like to get rid of excess weight, is it?
This round my weight will not budge and then after two or three days, drops. It is annoying as I am used to a smoother ride. Then I look at the end of my week and feel abashed that I have been annoyed.
Honestly I don,t know how all you slow losers out there put up with it. What I see in a week with this method plays out over a month or more when you are using regimes for slower weight reduction.
In the end it pans out the same, I am sure, but I find that using this quick method really helps me to get insights and make changes in my perceptions and thinking about my processes.
Works for me!
Have a great weekend, Sparkadees, & keep doing what works for you.
Re-releasing that extra weight I caught
Thursday, July 24, 2014
Don't want to say regain, becaue it's not what I like to think of as a gain, but i am relosing some extra weight.
As I have said before, I let my focus go for a couple of months and the result was I put on a bit over 10 kilos. Dang!
Getting myself back on track and in last two weeks have dropped 5.5% of my body weight according to this tracker:
It's relatively easy to relose on the Cura, but I won't let this happen again. Sure 2 or 3 kgs might creep on but I promise myself that I will pay better attention and Nip it in the bud in time to make the correction a whole lot more of a minor thing.
Don,t know about you but when I am dropping some extra weight I do think to myself, Gee Fifi you could be just a bit away from your goal this time, and wouldn't that feel different than simply correcting a slip.
A ...drearier feeling than feeling excited and proud, you know?
I actually don't want a focus on losing weight to be in my life for that much longer, and Ima gonna deal with it.
