Wooooot!

73.1kg this morning! I woke up and thought I looked a bit smaller in the mirror when I was getting dressed. I stepped on the scales and was thinking "Oh, if I could just be in the high 73s..." and WHOOSH. It's a small whoosh but by gosh wil... Read more
Improvement?

Yesterday I ate quite a bit more than I would normally. Probably around 1600-1700 calories. This morning I was down 100g. It could be a coincidence, especially given the fact that water retention should be calming down now. I'm glad to see an... Read more

I thought that keto was working for me. In the first week, I lost heaps. About 2kg. Since then? Nadda. It's frustrating. I'm not hungry throughout the day and that's great, but when you're actively reducing your diet to a more restrictive way... Read more

Tomorrow is my weigh in day. This morning I weighed myself and I was 74.4kg. I'm not hopeful. I know it's that time of the month and that I usually retain water as a result, but I was really hoping to be down more by now. I'm hopeful that by ... Read more
Still going well

I think I'm pretty well fat adapted now. It's bizarre. I only got hungry once today. Had my lunch at 12 because I was pretty ready to eat by then, but otherwise I didn't really think about food much at all during the day. That's pretty darn un... Read more
Week One Weigh In - Keto Goals
Sunday, June 25, 2017      1 comments

74.5kg this morning. Not quite a full week, but I've decided to make Mondays my weigh in day. It stops me from going stupid on the weekends. 1.7kg off so far, which sounds great but most of it will be water weight. I'm ok with that, I'm wea... Read more
Nearly a week in... Going great!

So I'm not sure what's changed. For literally months (as in, at LEAST eight) I've been struggling with dieting. Eating too much. Eating too often. Trying the next fad and the next fad and the next fad... And getting nowhere. This week has b... Read more

I'm back. Again. I can't believe I'm at this point again. I've had another baby (our last!) and am struggling to lose weight. This morning I weighed in at 76.2kg. That really sucks to have to say. I remember many years ago swearing to myse... Read more
You win some, you lose some.

So after being so excited about getting to my goal weight in November... I'm back up to 71.5kg. Not as bad as it was, I was nearly at 73kg! UGH! I swore I'd never get over 70kg again, and here I am. Well, I'm on a low carb diet again and... Read more
After 4 years, I MADE IT TO MY GOAL WEIGHT!

I finally got there! Actually, I got UNDER there. This morning I weighed in at 63.9kg. My goal was and has been for a long time now, 65kg. That being said, a large reason for my loss has been one of misery. I've had gastro for the last 3 days.... Read more
Clean Eating Day Six
Thursday, November 06, 2014      1 comments

I skipped blogging for day five because it was essentially the same as the last few days. I feel fresher, more energetic, and more alert each day. Each day I do a little better and eat better things. I'm feeling great and I'm enjoying the f... Read more
Clean Eating Day Four
Tuesday, November 04, 2014      0 comments

I did well today. And not so well. As we have very little in the pantry (I get paid tomorrow) I made do with what I had. Then I got to the end of the day and realised that I was at LEAST 500 short if you take into account that my minimum is supp... Read more
Clean Eating Day Three!
Monday, November 03, 2014      0 comments

I think I did better today. Well, I know I did. The only thing that wasn't 'clean' that I ate was a few pieces of pasta (whole durum wheat pasta with nothing else in it, but obviously still very processed so not really that clean) and a couple o... Read more
Day one of clean-er eating.

I've been sick today. I woke up sounding like Mutley (if you're old enough to remember Wacky Racers ;) ) with a terrible wheezy cough. I haven't FELT that sick, I just am under the weather. I knew it was coming, one of my colleagues has been ... Read more
Clean eating. My newest 'thing'.
Saturday, November 01, 2014      2 comments

I've decided that as I need to focus more on the quality of my food rather than the quantity (calorie obsession is one of the things that triggers my restrictive demons) I'm going to give clean eating a go. I'm not going to go whole hog on ... Read more
