Update + Weigh in + Measurements
So I've been AWOL for a week and a half. Of course, that is directly linked to the fact that I had a bad week last week, and put back on a kg.
I didn't want to admit it, to anyone, but specifically I didn't want to admit it to myself. That wou... Read more
The bad thing about not driving is a good thing.
I don't drive. Not because I don't have a car, even though I don't (though my partner does), and not because I can't, cos I have driven before, and owned cars.
The reason I don't drive is because it freaks me out, but that's something for a d... Read more
Time to say goodbye, and hello
When I signed up to SP I had about 50 lb to lose. But since I have lost 5kg (11lb) in the last 5 weeks, it is now time to say goodbye to the "20 somethings with 50-99 pounds to lose" team. It has been great to get to know some of the people in t... Read more
Weekly Weigh In: I finally did it!
Gee, it's been a week since my last post, I'm getting rather slack.
So a little update before I get to the best part of this post.
I seem to be addicted to the end of season clearance sales at The Warehouse. Every day I take my daughter t... Read more
1 month SparkVersary, Weigh-in, and a kick in the pants
So the official weekly weigh-in and I'm now 83.7 kgs. That 1.1 kgs down from last week. Although I'm pretty sure I could have cracked my first weight goal (83 kgs) if it hadn't been for the carb binging, I have to admit over 1 kg in a week is pr... Read more
I feel like I'm slipping.
So a week in to the mindful eating and I haven't done so well. In fact, I think I'm doing worse.
It all started with a bag of chips.
When FebFast ended, the very next day my partner bought alcohol for himself (cos he had given it up for the ... Read more
FebFast: out; Mindfull eating March: in
FebFast has now ended, and I'd like to think I did pretty well.
No break-downs or binges, I drank more water, I tried different kinds of snacks if I really wanted something to eat, this even stopped a lot of my late night snacking as well.
N... Read more
First "official" weigh-in
Okay, I have a confession to make. When I first joined up to SP, I guessed my weight at 88kg.
It wasn't until I was a week or so in that I actually stepped onto a scale for the first time since before christmas.
I was in The Warehouse (somet... Read more
Not feeling the support at home.
Ok, at first I decided to do this "no junk food" thing in support of my partner not drinking for the month. I thought he would be happy with that.
But it quite obvious now that he doesn't care at all.
I said he didn't have to stop eating ju... Read more
OMG! New favourite snack!
Normally, I'm a savoury snack kind of person. Chips, flavoured crackers, or kettle corn (okay that's a little bit sweet too), are top of my list. Occasionally, though, I feel like something sweet.
So I needed to find a healthy kind of sweet s... Read more
Hurdle #1 Kids Birthday Party
Had to go to a kids birthday party today. My partners nieces party to be exact.
Normally with kids parties it's all chips, lollies, cake. Basically everything that that's on my junk food list.
Thankfully, my partners family usually do dece... Read more
February: FebFast AKA No Junk Food
Okay, so officially FebFast is about giving up alcohol for the month of February. There's a website and you have to join up and get sponsors to pay money for you not to drink.
My version is only the same in the fact that I'm giving up some... Read more
How I got here
For years I have been looking up weight loss websites, buying books and magazines to read for tips and systems that could help me get rid of these extra pounds. But in the end I haven't done anything that they have suggested, and ended up disli... Read more
