What is it with the reset button to disaster that I like to come back to again and again? I've been on a loss trajectory for quite a while now...one holiday and only 1 cheat day and it's a struggle to get back into the rhythm. A whole week h... Read more

The new normal daily calorie count is feeling acceptable and comfortable. Holidays need to be sorted. 2000kcal allowance for holiday days and minimum 30 min exercise. See how it goes.... Read more
Are Headaches usual?
Wednesday, September 07, 2016      2 comments

Since 2 days I've been getting strange headaches - lack of focus, concentration and lethargy. Wondering if this has anything to do with losing weight in general? I eat healthy - plenty of protein, carbs, vegetables and even some fats too - all... Read more

Rhythm
Tuesday, August 30, 2016      6 comments

I've realised that once we get into a rhythm of eating less and avoid sugar/sweet things you really do get used to it. I noticed today that I was craving chocolate because it was that time of the month for me...I didn't have any so I made... Read more

Why I socialise with friends but never with relatives
Friday, August 19, 2016      1 comments

Family is a weird thing. Your bound by blood but it doesn't mean diddly squat about liking each other. Friends are wonderful - you know they want to be with you because they want to, not because a bond dictates that's how it should be. ... Read more
