Last Monday was 6 months done of this trial I'm in. My blood glucose levels are normal, and overall my weight and body fat is less than it was at the start. I've had trouble getting into the high-intensity exercise. I'm just not making... Read more

It's been a while since I blogged here. Update: My new diet is a high protein, low carb and low fat one. I have been put in the high intensity exercise group (75 minutes). Everyone in the group is building up to 150 minutes a week... Read more

Second trial weigh in

Saturday, August 02, 2014      3 comments

I lost 3.3kgs this time. My body took a while to recover from the brownies, plus I've been cheating with a bit on meat more often than I really should be. But the good news is that I;ve reached my 8% goal, so I'm into the next stage of the trial... Read more

First trial weigh in

Wednesday, July 23, 2014      2 comments

The Saturday just past I had my first weigh in after starting the Preview trial. I had to be weighed three times to make sure the scales were reading correct. It was astonishing to see the numbers. I had lost 7.9 kilos in two weeks! I have ... Read more

Long time no blog

Been a while since I last was here. To quickly recap the last few months: -I fell off the wagon and put back on all but 5kgs. -I joined a medical trial, a study into preventing diabetes and maintaining weight loss. I've been on the... Read more

Week 35 & 36

Wednesday, May 21, 2014      0 comments

Haven't been on the scales for some time now. Pretty I'm gaining weight though. Not sure what else to put. My mum visited from Australia for a week [went home yesterday afternoon]. Felt pretty sad all of yesterday and still somewhat to... Read more

Week 34

Sunday, May 11, 2014      2 comments

A bit of a late blog. Stayed off the scale this last week again. Feeling better though. Been walking most days and eating smarter. Friday, I cleared all the wheat and gluten out of our cupboards. I've been meaning to do this for some t... Read more

Week 33

Saturday, May 03, 2014      1 comments

Stayed off the scales this week. Still haven't got back on the cross-trainer. Have been eating whatever whenever as well. Lacking motivation to be honest. I want to get healthy, but I'm too lazy to put the work in. And on the other hand, I ... Read more

Week 32

Wednesday, April 23, 2014      0 comments

Lost 900 grams. Woo, finally. Feeling good after getting a lower number. Public holidays have thrown out my exercise routine this week, keep sleeping in, instead of getting up to exercise. Reset next week. Realised anew how much I... Read more

Week 31

Wednesday, April 16, 2014      0 comments

Gained again this week. 1.4 kilos. Pfffffffffffft. I know my food choices haven't been the best, and I've been eating after dinner, which has always been an issue. I might have a great day, food-wise, and then evening comes and I binge on c... Read more

Week 30

Tuesday, April 08, 2014      2 comments

Wow, 30 weeks. Kind of makes me feel more depressed. I feel like I should have lost a lot more weight than I have by now. Apparently I gained 2.3 kilos this week.......... Not really sure what to put. I've been eating more wheat than u... Read more

Week 29

Friday, April 04, 2014      2 comments

Down 900 grams. Wooo, happy about that. Not much else to report this week. My hopes of exercising in the mornings, before my son wakes up, have come to naught - he has been waking much, much earlier than normal. I might have to go for exerc... Read more

Week 28

Wednesday, March 26, 2014      0 comments

Gained 500 grams this week. Got a bit down yesterday about not being able to break through this lose-gain cycle. It's really annoying. I need to overhaul my eating and exercising again, something needs to change. I know I need to be exercis... Read more

Week 27

Wednesday, March 19, 2014      2 comments

Gain this week. 1.5 kilos. I'm not surprised. Having a bit of a hard time motivation-wise. Just feeling a bit sick of it and wishing there was an easier way - while knowing that losing weight takes time and is hard work. There is still... Read more
