SO true, old habits die hard...not logging, and in no time flat, I am sneaking a biscuit here and a little butter there...and soon you sneak up a kilo, then one and a half...
So I am logging again. 1500 cals a day. Still sitting with those kil... Read more
Well I am not sure that the scale is now really suffering from the Big Freeze...I am down again, and I have not particularly been tracking 100% nor exercising my normal routine, on my first week back from holidays!! I have been thinking twice ab... Read more
Back to the future..
So the holiday was great!! We loved being in the mountains, had quite a sober Christmas (no gifts and just local SA quisine for Christmas, and when hubby and I got home the scale had good news for both of us...usually I come home from holidays w... Read more
So I am off for a holiday visit with friends and family, in a sunny country, for around a month. Most the time we will be out of reach of computers and even mobile signals...so a real rest! I am not complaining...
Winter has come with a vengea... Read more
The straw that breaks the camel's back...
Struggle is ongoing. Kilo up, kilo down. Thought I broke the plateau, but I didn't. Winter is setting in and so does the need for a little winter comfort...a little dark chocolate, a little digestive biscuit with my afternoon tea....all the "cri... Read more
So, the weekend went fairly well, caved on Sunday afternoon (just chilling) and see that somewhere along the line, I have given in to eating in front of the telly. Usually healthy snacks, but still...that's the best way to clock up extra calorie... Read more
Will I be good this weekend?
Spend lotsa time this week reading up on hypothyroid and diet on SP, and seems I have a plan again, hope to get back on track but have to make it through the weekend and not cheat!

OK everybody, it's starting to pay off...all the "I am not allowed" and making other choices that are more, let's say clever, has the scale budging finally. And of course the exercise.
Weekend ahead with a family of 5 visiting ( I know, it's ... Read more
Perdre les poids...ce'st un bulot!!
Discipline, discipline, discipline....I am not allowed, I am not allowed, I am not allowed...and just do it, just do it, just do it....those became my three "mantras" (as some people like to call it), last week...
So I am now at least tracking... Read more
Man!! Why on earth is it so difficult to get back on track??
I have not had one single day this week without a cheat, even if it was a healthy one! Since back from my trip I am constantly feeling hungry (perhaps the body clock still adjusting... Read more
Back to reality...
So I am back from my China / Singapore trip...it was a blast! In China I got sick from air pollution, perhaps because the flu I had in July did not quite clear, but two days into Singapore and I was fine! How I like (perhaps even love) that pla... Read more
Fallen off the side of the earth??
What a difference it makes not to get on the scale!! (OK, so I am cheating a bit and getting on every 10 days or so...but not logging.) Weight is constant. Clothes are fitting well to loose. Exercise going well, cardio at least 30 minutes at lea... Read more
So I have decided, after talking to successfull loosers (of the weight variety) and they all say they also got stuck at some stage. In stead of the scale being my measure, I have decided to follow suit...NOT get on the scale for a while.
In th... Read more
And all other bad words to express frustration at not loosing!!!
I am doing all I know to, and yet the scale is up 300 grams, down 200, up 100, down 400. Which leaves me with still, the same goal.
I have done at least 30 min of cardio ea... Read more
