Chick - thanks for that - yeah I enjoy walking on my own with my music and ocassionally take a pic or 3 (not very skilled but still able to tell what the photo is lol) and I am sure once daylight savings returns I will walk even more (like last spring/summer) and I am lucky I enjoy my own company most of the time

Well My girls weekend that became a family weekend is next weekend and it has just taken another hit - my husband has decided he doesn't want to hang with me and my children either ... so F him (sorry for the implied curse) I am going to have fun and as this may be the last chance I get for a holiday with all my kids at once - now 2 of them work full time and one has a part time job I am going to embrace every second. We have lots planned and even if it is wet will still be well occupied as the bach comes complete with pool table, table tennis table, dvd player etc - however I do hope we get some fine weather :-)

I am hoping to really get in my grove again and I think I am there ... I am at work today and it is dead quiet so I have been planning and plotting my goals and "to dos" through till Christmas :-) I have a lot to achieve but am quietly confident :-)

TF How far are you from Napier - I have never been and am looking at going down there end of January - is it to far to maybe meet up ? I have no concept of distance to you lol

Good morning everyone :-)

There was a good group on here and slowly as lives got busier or people reached their goal weight, people wandered off...
But I am sure as we are kiwis, we will find news members to join up..

Lisa: I hadn't realised that you were in Christchurch... I do hope that you are in a safe zone... and I am sorry that your group of Chch walkers broke up... I guess some moved up north to Auckland (as many did) or moved to a new area to feel safe... after all 13,000 earthquakes in just a few years would be enough for a number of folks.

Deb: Hang in there and find your own fun... get your camera and go out and find new places and take photographs... discover your area... and at the same time you are walking and getting in some exercise... you can do that on any day that you are not walking... it can be a short distance or a longer distance... you can travel a wee distance to discover what it out there... amazing is that you will as you walk about, you will meet others doing the same... you get to chat... you may just discover a new friend or two along the way...
Put some over yonder so I can check them out if you do this...
BTW it can be via a cell ph pic or even the small Compaq camera... we all started out like that.... it is a way of getting you out of the house to get fresh air into your lungs and getting in some exercise..
What do you think??

Ros: How are you doing over there in Vietnam? Hope you are ok.

TF: Hello, hope you are well.... missing your input too :-)

It is a beaut sunny day in NZ... :-)

Lisa - I have put a few posts up and also PMd some local ladies hoping for a walking buddy here but no luck. I am thinking of in Spring puting a notice up in the local supermarket or something, there are walking groups here but they all walk during my work day :-( and there is a midweek fun-run/walk group thing here but I am not fast enough - the walkers walk faster than I run lol - I am also really hoping getting more involved in my church will help as I am pretty clueless on how to meet anyone and it seems most people have similar issues - as to your hubby being your best friend AWESOME - I wish mine was mine but my 16 year old daughter seems to be my best friend these days and I don't think that is entirely healthy for either of us lol

I am happy today as it is weigh-in day and even with two birthday parties (Sunday a big family lunch) and my actual birthday yesterday I am still down half a kilo :-) so hope that continues

Sorry your big girls weekend getaway has fallen apart. They don't know what they have missed.
Everyone is so busy it is hard to make new friends. When you go to activities most people are already with friends. My best friend is my husband and I must say I spend most of my time with him. I am not much help am I? Have you looked for a walking buddy here on Team Kiwi that lives in your area? Before the earthquakes we had a walking group we called "Sparklers" that met every Sunday around Christchurch and became good friends. We updated each other on our journey through weight loss and life. If wet we just had coffee together. Unfortunately the earthquakes disrupted our group. I must say I do really miss our weekly walks and talks.

Sooooo my big girls weekend getaway that has been my focus for a month or so now has fallen apart and my 9 invitees have one by one dropped out till only one was left ... so I have scrapped it and will not be having a wild girls weekend to celebrate my 40th :-(

ok so how do you meet people and make new friends, I don't have kids in school anymore etc, I don't belong to clubs and I work in a tiny office with little interaction with others and for the past 7 years it has been hammered home on multiple occasions that I have somewhere between zero and one friends in real life - well that is in the same country as me ... and I am clueless how to go about rectifying the situation ... any suggestions would be good :-)

Joining the gym did not help - in fact I have belonged to three in this city all for a minimum of a year and other than the receptionist barely spoke to anyone lol

I go to church but haven't made any friends there but have had irregular attendance so am working on that and may look at joining a study group or ladies group there too

oh it is so nice to have the thread a bit more active again - and although LisaC I have seen you on Team Kiwi for a long time it is lovely to see you in here :-) I hope you have been enjoying getting into a good routine

ROS - thanks I am still smiling

ROS, TF & WC you ladies are always so busy - when I grow up I am going to be a busy gal too :-)

We have a family lunch on Sunday for my 40th (a couple of days early) and I am looking forward to it. Then August 1-4th I am off for my beach weekend getaway - I know I have been so excited about it and I still am but people keep pulling out which is sad and also frustrating as some of them are annoying me with stories about how they "are soooo sorry and really wanted to come but have been rostered to work etc" now this to me seems really untrue as they had months of notice to make sure they were off that weekend - one other is not responding to any messages about the weekend and even when I saw her face to face and asked "have you been getting my messages? Are you aware so&so has pulled out?" the only response was "yeah I saw the messages I plan to get onto replying to some messages and emails tonight I've been so busy" but she totally avoided the issue of whether she was still coming ... and here it is 11.08pm and no reply to any of my messages ... tempted to cancel the whole damn thing and make it a family weekend ... not the way I wanted things to go but further proof I really need to work on some new friendships

Hi everyone,

Congrats Declare- Finally your persistence and good choices are showing up on the scale Congratulations. That is an impressive loss!

Congrats also to TF slow and steady wins the race and this diligence is all essential for the maintenance journey too- which is where i am at!

Seems like we are all doing well.

Congrats too to everyone else including WC who is very good at popping in to say hi and to Lisa-Caroline for the first steps back at the gym emoticon Sounds like you have made considerable progress in your journey already by looking at your stats. So even in the absence of the gym you are well on your way!

How's everyone going - I am trying hard to stick to once weekly weighing which is hard for me but with how sad the scales are it was killing me watching them creep up every day :-( ROS I would love to see what an average day for you is like and get some more info - I am one that loves learning about stuff even if it may not fit me personally - and it this point I will try most things if my Doc is onboard

Hubby is away this weekend so I spent last night prepping up a pile of food for him and his twin girls to take away with them - tonight I am going to relax as I have work tomorrow but the weekend will be another mix of housework, scrapbooking and exercise - with a movie or two in the mix :-) I am sooooo predictable

I am well into planning my Girls weekend away. 6 ladies living it up for a fun weekend - miniputt golf, dancing, a historic homestead for devonshire teas, beach, games of pool and table tennis and ummm thats right probably more alcohol than I have had in the last few years ... I am really looking forward to it :-)

Declare emoticon I can relate I was exercising like a crazy woman and dropped calories to 1000 a day and nothing nada for many months. The only consolation I had was that I wasn't really gaining either as I knew that if I gave up that was what would happen. So when I found MB it rang true for me as I knew I had a metabolic problem as calories in = calories used wasn't working. I needed retuning and now I am averaging about 1500 cal a day and it began to just fall off me. My excema has cleared up and I just feel better. The best part for me is that it is all whole and real foods. So it is very clean eating. I can send you some more details if you are interested. But hang in there. I do know that if the calories get too low the body just goes into starvation mode and that is not good either. Great that the other things such as cholesterol blood sugar etc are all in the healthy range as that is really a big NSV!!!

ROS - You are an inspiration :-) Great to hear you are still loving your program too - ooooh running - now that is one of my aspirations but I cannot run on my treadmill due to being over the weight limit and when I tried last time I had a bad fall so with all the rain we are having running is on hold till I either lose 15-20kgs or the sun comes back out

I have done so many different things and can honestly say I have stuck hard for at least a couple of months on all of them then either boredom or lack of results derails me - the only thing I stuck at for over 6months was the Optifast Program but at less than 800 calories a day it was never meant to be permanent and when I went to the next phase of 1000 calories a day I stopped losing. So I thought stuff it I will go to 1200 calories low carb and track everything and I lost tiny bit here and there but at least didn't gain. Then I got sick again and Doc ordered I need to be around 1500calories a day minimum and that I was trying to do too much so am now only doing an hour of cardio a day and here I am less than a month later up 6kgs :-(

Doing my best to stay to "real" food fruit, veges, meat and occasional grains - not bread, pasta packaged foods etc - admit I slip up once and a while but sticking to my targets. Exercise last week was way under the hour a day as I had a major fibro flare up but other than that I have been a good girl and should be on Santa's list for a nice weigh in ... but alas nope :-( and I would be ok with that if I was losing cms instead but nope no loss there either - in fact a gain in tummy and thighs :-(

On a positive my cholesterol, blood sugar etc are all in the healthy range

Hi everyone,

How is it going? Declare, listen to your Dr and go for the healthy foods- fruit and veges, limit your carbs and you cant go too wrong that is for sure. I wish I could recommend the program to you that I am doing as it really has made a huge difference for me but searching the web I only see one metabolic coach in NZ and she seems to be just outside of New Plymouth of all places. I think there is a look alike program but... not sure about it. It is so individualised based on your own body chemistry and other issues. I am just thrilled with it really and I am beginning to believe that maintenance might just be possible (this is huge for me as there is so much fear of going back to where I was). The weight I put on when I was away is all off again. I have even started running,

WC how are you doing? great to see the old faithfuls on here. Have a great week everyone. What I notice is I hardly get to see blogs anymore in this new format. I guess I need to start looking for them or subscribing or something.

Hi all - Ros thanks for that - yeah the Doc insisted on me upping my calories and I expected there to be a period of "adjustment" but this is ridiculous :-( not really sure where to go with it right now

WC - Had only a one day weekend but enjoyed having a good lazy Sunday, some good sounds and a movie etc with Miss 16 and a few cuddles with hubby and the unloved cat (boarder is neglecting him so even though I am not a cat person I seem to spend more time with him than anyone else)

Hi all,

Sorry not been around much, but back home now so things are improving. Time to get myself in hand food wise though as I have had two weeks without too much control, though I think the damage is not too bad, maybe my weight is beginning to stabilise, wouldn't that be nice. Will weigh in tomorrow and will let you know.

Declare at least you are facing the truth I know that when I haven't been eating right (like the last little while) I have to force myself on to the scale as denial is so much easier. But the truth helps change us and helps us make better decisions so don't despair this is far from a smooth journey and we all have our bumps in the road. I have found that for me I need to choose something small that I can do and power and success in that helps me take on the bigger challenges such as food. Anyway that is my strategy. All the best as you see the scale move once more in the right direction. I also remember many times when I was doing it all good and the scale went up, but I discovered that if I didnt blow it, it was usually a temporary glitch and often is followed by a bigger fall. I read somewhere when doing Atkins that sometimes fat cells fill with water before collapsing so. Hang in there!!!

Greeting to WC and everyone else hanging out and lurking here!! emoticon

Physically I am already well on the way to recovery - thankfully

And the frog plague ended without too much damage



Well Hubby dearest and I had ANOTHER big argument last night he was making very nasty comments about some obese people on tv having a range of procedures done ie gastric bypass and one guy though still solid who had lost heaps of weight and was having the excess skin and of course some fat removed - he was so revolting and unpleasant I could not keep quiet - told him how insensitive and without empathy or compassion he was, pointed out I weigh more than a couple of the people on the show, to which he replied "rubbish you are not as big as that man" I pointed out no but I was bigger than all the woman bar one ... he got all huffy sulked in silence the rest of the evening and then went to bed, I'm still getting silent treatment this morning ... he is a complete *other word for donkey rhymes with grass* I am so over his black and white totally judgmental attitude to everything ... and as most "donkeys" do he makes totally hypocritical statements like "its wrong to try and change someone" etc when it is him or when he sees something he doesn't agree with but he can make horrible comments to me or people I consider like me 24/7 without even knowing their story :-( there are none so blind as those who cannot see themselves at all

sorry rant over

Declare, those pesky frogs. I have learnt that for some things it is better for me not to start emoticon but sometimes it still happens. So what to do, just move on. trust your ear infection gets better quickly

Hi to everyone else. Went for a walk tonight but it turned out longer than anticipated as I got lost. Still it was a lovely walk around the lake and it took me over one and a half hours. emoticon

Kia ora GirlWonder and welcome aboard the kiwi thread.
Heaps of support in here for everyone so just chat away :-)

Debs: WOHOOOOO awesome that you are fitting back into your 'wedding' jeans...

TF: Good on you for doing all that exercise... well done you :-)

Ros: Yep you are right, once we get it off.. it is then the hard part to manage that weight...

But what is most important is that we are all healthy and fitter than what we used to be...

Hi everyone

Firstly congratulations Declare emoticon getting back into your wedding jeans, that is a great accomplishment and shows the progress you have made!!

TF you seem to be also back into the swing of things and seem to be doing well. congratulations are in order all the way around by the sound of things time to celebrate emoticon .

Girl wonder this is really a great place to hang out and we have the regulars and we love to have new people to join us. I have been around SP for a couple of years now and it is a big factor in my journey towards better health. I am down 53kg now but know that keeping it off is also the challenge so I make a point to be actively engaged and also trying to learn about myself and others. It is a long journey for some of us, but the journey started with the first steps and you seem well on your way! All the best for the journey ahead.

hi ladies:)

well done declare on getting into those jeans, that's HUGE SUCCESS and im so proud of you for balancing your life and still focussing on your own health. welcome Girl wonder congratulations on wanting a better healthy lifestyle and I hope you stick around here, this as declare said, is the best form of communication and genuine people on team kiwi. we are honest and open all know the pitfalls of ups and downs, I have been on highs and lows through my journey and we all understand the stresses of life, and I have found that the friendships that I have made on team kiwi has helped me immensenly in not giving up and going back to my old ways. I struggle still with my weight im 129 kilos at the moment and I have a huge journey in front of me, but with the encouragement and great advise I haven't given up on myself and I know that I will be able to achieve a healthy balanced life once again.

I did 2.5k on the treadmill today in 30 minutes so im really happy with that. and also I did a 20 minute shadow boxing workout. so now off to do the housework and enjoy my day off.

keep up the goodwork everyone and like you said Westchick its all about putting one foot in front of the other and take it day by day and before you know it your achieveing your goals.

Welcome Girl_wonder - yeah team kiwi seems to have slowed down a lot since I orignally joined in 2011 but the Kia Ora thread keeps ticking :-) we still have about half a dozen regulars that post at least a couple of times a week - and the stalwarts that check in most days like myself :-)

If you are interested in a few more challenges/goals etc there are many other teams you can join but for friendship and moral support I have found few better than my fellow Kiwis :-)

Well ladies I honestly can't remember if I told you last week I got back into my wedding weight jeans :-) I am not back to wedding weight yet but it is a positive step to keep me focused on getting there soon :-) and has helped keeping me on the right path with food and exercise

Hi everyone

Hugs to you Declare, glad you have made the decision to get back on track I am sure those kg will come off quickly and better to halt the upward trend. So good on you! emoticon I know for me, stress is a big contributing factor to weight gain and I am sure with all the stress you have had recently it is understandable.

Great to see you WC your posts are always encouraging

congratulations Kiwiinwi too for making it back on track. I am trying to figure out what triggers those cravings as if I can figure that out I can maybe have halt the triggers or try a different tack. Anyway it is a journey of learning that is for sure. So in the immortal words of someone ( I don't remember who!) "never, never, never give up"

Temperatures are rising here, yesterday was about 38 with a real feel much hotter so the cycle is away for the moment and I am back on my motorbike, but even the wind is hot!!!

Today is day one of us attempting our new "normal" routine

Good morning everyone and welcome aboard to Kiwiinwi :-)

The sun is shinning, with a few clouds about... a nice start to Queen's Birthday weekend.

Kiwiinwi: Good luck with the sale of your home in the states... and to be heading back HOME in kiwiland. Where about in NZ will you head back to?
Each time that you feel the stress rise, take a deep breath in and breathe out (do a few times) and walk outside and go for a little walk (depending on the time of day) that way you are walking away from your kitchen and food. By then you are ready to start doing what you were doing :-)

Remember it is one day at a time and one step in front of the other.

Hi to everyone,

I just thought I would drop by for a quick hello. and catch up with everyone emoticon Hugs for you Deb, sorry to hear about what you are dealing with will be praying for you both. I think some good Ideas have already been mentioned but feel free to come here and share with us as this is a safe place (as far as I can see) and you both need support at this time.

TF glad to hear you are feeling better and getting the food thing under control. I found that if I get on top of the food thing quickly and be diligent in the exercise it all rights itself quite quickly!

KIWIINWI welcome!!! from one expat Kiwi to another. good on you for making good food choices and come here often as this is a great friendly and personal place to hang out. I guess I just like the camaraderie of fellow kiwis!

WC great to see you popping in

Have a great week!!

welcome back :) kiwiinwi. I believe that if we prioritise ourselves as number one and feed ourselves well all other aspects of our live fall into place, good luck with everything and look forward to getting to know you through spark. :)

I have achieved 2.5km walk today in 30 minutes so im really happy with my progress.. slowly but surely I will climb my way back to walking every day. also ive had 6 days flow of eating well and clean eating so im really happy at the moment. now the trick is to keep this momentum to finish of the week and into the next :)

Deb : I hope you are doing ok and your all talking and getting the counselling and help you need. big hugs xoxoxo

hi westchick, nice to see happy and busy.

hello,well Ive been off of spark for a while now I was trying weight watchers without much luck and thought why am I paying for this when I can do it for free on spark. I havnt had a good couple of weeks, Im living in the states but intend coming back home, so trying to get my house in some sort of order to be able to sell it. This I have to do by myself so Im stressing out about it, and of coarse I eat all the wrong things when Im stressed. I want it up on the market by June and I have a lot to do. Today I got up and decided that controlling my diet will come first and will work on my house when I can and just do my best

all well I was doing FANTASTIC but as seems to happen every time I think I control my little corner of the world something proves I am totally delusional - My 16 year old attempted suicide Wednesday evening. She is very lucky and we just got home from the hospital at 10.45pm tonight (Friday) she has escaped permanent liver damage but will be under mental health services for quite some time - please don't refer to this on FB as it is not widely public knowledge - but well as usual I need the support you guys offer me in all areas xx

So in the last couple of days I have been very active around and up and down to the hospital and have clocked up kilometres and stairs however food has been all via vending machines and the cafeteria ... nothing healthy in either

Relief is mixed with lingering anger and immense sadness that this even happened but I am feeling ok

hi guys, sorry I have been slack as......... the past 2 weeks ive been crook as, and haven't done anything... but im all better now, just the head cold left.

declare that about.com sounds great. I might look into it, thanks for putting it on the board. I have put weight on in the past 3 weeks. so that's a bummer but not devastating :) so i will bounce back and get stuck into it. i actually find winter a lot better for me in the exercise department because it warms me up :) hahahah weird i know, but in summer (because of my weight) im soooooo damn hot that i don't have any energy to do anything. so i have to make the most of the winter months, so hopefully summer coming will be better for me.

looking good ros, well done on all your commitments and your maintaining programme looks like its working for you. well done you are truly an inspiration.

Declare,

Sounds like a great new challenge there for you and that interval training really works. Good on you for having a push. You are doing great. Sorry to hear about your hair but hopefully that will be all sorted soon.

I am hopefully going to do a blog about my last weekend tomorrow so keep your eyes posted. I am happy though as even with my crazy schedule I managed to maintain my weight last week so maybe it really is stabilising. Wouldn't that be wonderful!!!

Well it is late now so off to bed hopefully to get my full 8 hours!!!

Ok partly out of desperation and partly out of fear of sliding backwards when winter really sets in I have just signed up to about.com 12weeks to weight loss - it is free and you get emailed each week with your exercise requirements for each day - I have also committed to 84 days of sticking to my food and exercise targets and tracking them (which I have gotten really bad at)

Yesterday was day 1 of my 84days and I rocked it :-)

today is day one of my about.com plan and I have to do a beginner level treadmill program

5mins warm up at level 4 incline 1 (seems slooooowwww)
3mins level 5 incline 2 (just pushing up the heart rate a little)
1min level 6 incline 3 (mmm thats a struggle for me)
3mins level 5 incline 2 (easing back to being able to breath)
1min level 6 incline 3 (feels even worse the second time)
3mins level 5 incline 2 (thanks God)
5mins cool down level 4 incline 1 (first minute a huge relief, next four was a bit bored)

So I did it this morning and I am going to do it again tonight - just because I can lol :-)
Feel free to sign up yourselves or just use the idea of the interval program :-)
level 4 seems really slow to me but level 6 is pretty full on if I don't jog and this one I am not jogging at all as I am trying to mix it up and Sunday, Tues and Thurs I do C25K - although I have been spending about a month at each level not the week it was meant to be lol and after a month off I am back to week 2 even though about 6 weeks ago I was doing week 3 - ahhh I am special :-)

just thought I better say levels on my treadmill equate to km/hr just in case your guys are different - I know ones I used at the gym way back when were different to mine

I am having Miss 19 come and try to fix my bad home dye job about 5pm - I will hopefully post a pic to my page if it looks nice - big change from blackish Purplish hair down my back to golden light brown hair just below my chin ... well that was the colour it was meant to be ... it isn't at the moment just blah boring brown - but Miss 19 thinks she can save me :-)

Have a great day I will be on sometime tonight to track my day and update about my hair and hopefully see how everyone else is xx

ahhh Ros then I think I may have been in the same thing :-) just a different team - they seem to have a challenge each season :-) we have one more week left of the Spring Challenge (my poorest showing yet) and then were meant to have a week break and start the summer challenge however due to some changes we have pulled our team out as not enough members - some are being popped into new teams but I have chosen to excuse myself from challenges till September/October as I really struggle in winter with my health

I over indulged big time over mothers day weekend :-( but not as bad as I would have a year or to ago so am thinking it is half fail half win lol

I have 11 weeks till My 40th Birthday Girls Weekend and by then I want to have lost quite a bit more weight so I really have to pull my finger out and get focused :-)

Hope you are all well and happy - Deb

Hi everyone,

Well I finally figured out how to change the timezone on spark as it has been changing days at mid-day which is a real pain if you track in the morning one day and the afternoon the next day. It has only taken me 2yrs to figure that out!!!

I trust you are all well. OUCH- TF that sounds painful, glad it is coming right though But please take it easy as you don't want to aggravate it.

WC great way to get lots of serious exercise and enjoying yourself as well. Its ages i.e. decades since I have been to a zoo in NZ my last Zoo excursion was in Singapore and I loved it as it has such a natural feeling to it as opposed to the zoo here, which I can walk in the grounds for free in the morning but I feel so sorry for the animals.

Deb BLC25 is a biggest loser challenge on this site and they have rounds that last 12 weeks. I am on a team called prism panthers and these are people at or near goal so it is good for me to learn from them how to maintain the weight loss as this is the most scary part of the journey for me and I don't want to be going backwards. they have weekend challenges, last chance workouts and Tighten and tone challenges as well. it is full on and last challenge I missed some weigh ins etc so was sidelined though I did as much as I could. So I am trying to be more consistent this time. What is the connection with your team? just curious as there are so many opportunities on this site.

Mumsey congratulations on your newest grand child. What a blessing.

I went back to my metabolic balance coach on Frday and was thrilled with the results as she has one of those machines that measures muscle and fat etc. I don't know how accurate it is but.. the trend is what is important and all the figures have changed so much it is really impressive, I am so pleased with my progress.
I just have to work out how to deal with the stress in my life so I can improve my sleep. Anyway must go.

morning everyone :)

wow 6 hours, that's the good part about the zoo you get a lot of exercise without really knowing it. I could imagine that the legs would be a little sore today.

I got on the treadmill again today and did 1k in 15 minutes, so im happy with that and I will do it again tomorrow. my muscle is still a little sore but not enough to ground me so that's all good. :)

hope you are having a great day ladies :)

see you on Monday. enjoy the weekend.

Deb: You are doing great... :-)

yes deb it was sore, I had a hard time getting in and out of the truck yesterday so maybe that wasn't such a good idea. hahahah. after a lot of heat and massage and deepheat, it is feeling a lot better. I did 15 minutes on the treadmill today and did 1k. so starting from the beginning again, but hey like you deb its better than nothing, and after having a year of bad fibro im just pleased that im back on the treadmill and I will hopefully build up my muscles again and see that scale move. I was bummed out yesterday as I had put on .200 grms I know its not a lot and its really a bowel movement but I felt I had a really good week with food, and thought I would have lost at lease .500 grams. so bit disappointed but im not upset to stop..... I know I will find my balance soon, I haven't been doing exercise so I made a commitment last night to my girlfriend that I will do 15 min 4 x this week and stick to it. so im happy I got on the treadmill.

have a great day everyone. :)

ouch - nothing like a pulled butt muscle :-( hope it is improving as I type this

Hope all is well out there - I am back in the swing of things food wise, concentrating on no processed foods and keeping up my superfoods - scale is beginning to move again finally but it is way slower than the good old shakes of course - but I feel good :-)

Exercise is where I have struggled and even my new plan is tough at the moment - but I am pushing to get it in and even on the days I don't get it all done at least I am doing something

Not sure what BLC25 is Ros so guess that is a nope :-) I am in a team - the White Tigers they do seasonal challenges with other teams on SP - currently we are doing the spring challenge but I have been really slack - sign up has just started for the summer challenge ... weird that they are always the opposite to the weather here tho so sometimes the challenges are a bit out of balance with our weather lol

Hi all,

Great to see everyone doing well. Deb are you doing the BLC25? I was just wondering? I hope everyone had a great weekend. Yesterday my niece got married in Palmerston North. I was really feeling far from everyone and sad I wasn't able to be there. I did however go to a wedding of a friend here instead. So it was wedding day and I had to wait until today until someone posted a picture on face book!

I have decided I want to loose another 2kg so I can be more comfortable about having 2kg wiggle room. But with weddings etc and especially having chocolate in the house it is a bit of a struggle at the moment. I was back on the bike today but I think biking days are going to be limited as the temperature sure is rising. Anyway I trust you are all well and that this will be a great beginning to a new week.

hi everyone, wow the last couple of weeks has been a little chaotic for me hence why I haven't been on here, I think I finally have got my computer up and running properly (even though) it is still a little weird navigating everything and im sure that I will get used to it soon. and then they will change it all on me anyway hahahahahah.

Great news in the area of your debt deb, that interest is always a killer, so keep plugging away and just like the weightloss it will eventually go down, and once we get it down we have to maintain and make sure we don't put it back on and with the debt the same thing applys once its gone keep it gone :)

I agree with you ros, its hard to maintain control when we weren't used to it for such a long period of our lives, but once we understand that we ARE actually in control of our eating and exercise and the choices that we make every moment of the day, we feel so much better because we are doing exactly what we set out to do. and once the habit is set in stone, we will maintain a lot easier, re-establishing a new habit takes time and a lot of good choices - I struggle with this also everyday to keep control of my eating and lifestyle. BUT..... I know that I will get there, slowly and surely.

I have lost 2.6 kgs while on the weight watchers programme and im feeling very optismistic, and now that I have my computer running properly I will be tracking my excercise and yaking again.

big hugs to you all, ive missed ya's

Westchick,

Just got back from the Dawn service here in Hanoi. 5am! Very moving. A rep from the Turkish embassy read that quote from Ataturk. and of course the poem you quoted was also read. Followed by the breakfast. The service was held in the grounds of the Australian embassy followed by a wonderful breakfast.

Home now and tired- probably not helped by all I ate at the breakfast.

Now to work as it is not a holiday here

ANZAC Day - 25th April 2014 - Lest we forget

They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We Will Remember Them

We Will Remember Them

LEST WE FORGET
.

ANZAC - stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) troops first landed on the beaches of the Gallipoli Peninsula, in Turkey on 25 April 1915 (WWl).
ANZAC Day became an official holiday in 1921


In 1934, the great Turkish statesman, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, sent this message to the mothers of the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who died at Gallipoli:

"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives… you are now lying in the soil of a friendly country.
Therefore rest in peace.
There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets where they lie side by side here in this country of ours…
You the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries, wipe away your tears.
Your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace.
Having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."

Dear Declare,

Yep been there done that before and I don't want to go there again. last time is was also 50kg++ that went back on along with those feelings of hopelessness in this area of my life.Increased health problems etc etc, So lots has changed within me since I started this phase of my journey. I like most of us could not imagine allowing myself to get back to where I was, but in reality life happens, you let little things slip and then you cant be bothered and the next thing you know it is all back on and more!!

So my journey this time has kind of been with that somber reality of how easy it is to loose all the success I've gained and a lot of fear about this phase of maintenance. But also I realise I have grown and so am not so hard on myself or so black and white. i.e. when I have control of my food intake and time for exercise, I can do it really well, and if I cant have control I loose the plot completely. It really is a mind game for me all the way.

I am so glad I found metabolic balance though as for me it is really working and it definitely broke my stall so I am really happy to get back into the program as I feel so much better when I do. I looked and there seems to be only one metabolic coach in all of NZ and she seems to be somewhere near New Plymouth otherwise I would thoroughly recommend this system. But I know we all have to find our own way and I am still trying to find my way through this maintenance phase.

Good news is I have lost 1.5kg already being back on the program. And I am back at the gym working hard and feeling so much better than before.

I understand about the plateau thing as I was also up and downing for about 5 months last year before I found the MB plan and I just had to come to the conclusion that even if I wasn't going down at least it was better than going back up.

Anyway keep pushing!!!

Welcome back Ros - yeah life can get in the way sometimes ... but great that it is only 3kgs and you are back into it ... some of us are back 13 or 23 or 33 kilos before we even realise how far we have slipped back into the old mistakes etc ... you will kick those 3kgs to the curb in no time xx

I am still yoyoing the same 5 kgs up and down that I have been all year - but haven't given up :-)

Hi all,

Sorry I went AWOL there for a while. Life just got too hectic! I also joined a BLC challenge and even wasn't able to post for all that I was supposed to.

Hopefully things will settle back down again. I am at goal emoticon Well at least I was the week before Easter... But.... I haven't managed to hold onto it.

I had a crazy schedule balancing guests, consultants and country side visits so I broke every dietary rule of my new regime, including eating most meals out which involved some very elaborate buffet meals and then on top of that with Easter- yes Swiss Chocolate easter eggs were flowing and nostalgia raised its head and I produced some wonderful hot cross buns!!! Added to this recipe for disaster, I wasn't able to get to the Gym all week. So early mornings and late nights which = lack of adequate sleep to boot.

This all resulted in the scale being up 3KGs!!! emoticon So I decided not to beat myself up which would have been my old response, but instead just to go back on my plan, dust off the bicycle and to get back to the gym.I gave away all the remaining eggs and buns to my staff as well. It is already working as the scale was 1kg down this morning already.

So I am back on track and back to hang out with my friends and support team here, you have all been so supportive during this long journey. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!! emoticon Actually my goal at the moment is to stabilise my weight! This is a big challenge for me and there is a lot of fear in there about how easy it is for it all to slip!

Anyway enough of the gloom. I had a wonderful Easter even got to sing with the Choir Easter morning service. So a new week is on its way and so am I once more.

Happy Easter everyone

I am not really into the "royals" as such but I do have some favourites in the Royal family - due to their causes and/or personalities and I am enjoying watching K&W and how they are making changes to public perception at the same time keeping the traditionalists happy :-) I hope you enjoyed the photo op

Haven't any news to report but am ticking along losing and regaining the same couple of kilos repeatedly :-( but I guess at least that means my body has a new "top" weight as I haven't gone above it for a while now :-)

Good morning and gosh the weekend has come around again.... time sure flies fast.

Deb: Yay good news re your debt... hope you get it all paid off real soon.

Mumsy: Congrats on another grandie :-)

TF: Setting up a new computer can be so much fun or even a pain in the butt.... transferring stuff over and even remembering all your passwords and all your favourite links that you used before on the old computer.

Kystle: Congrats on getting into the hockey team..

I have been busy of late so not been around on here much..
But yesterday I was on Royal watch... and got up fairly close to W & K.

A big welcome to wee Kate - have fun with her :-)

Well I have a huge smile on my face - first one in a while I confess and admittedly it is nothing to do with food, weight, exercise all those things I seem to be failing at the moment but it is LIFE changing - as some of you are aware financially I have been a mess for many many years and today I went from killing myself each week just to be able to attempt to make it and not getting anywhere to being able to breath ... I have every 6mths for the last 4 years attempted to move my nasty debt with a big bad finance company to banks/credit unions etc and had no luck in fact my own bank actually laughed at me about 2 years ago so I closed that account and joined a new bank. They were very helpful but still would not give me a loan ... last week I got a chance to get a loan through them but then they didn't approve enough to cover the whole amount so I was stuck in the middle ... they asked me to get some figures and statements together and they would try to get the loan approved for the amount I needed ... in the process of trying to get said information my big bad finance company decided to turn into a cuddly teddy bear ... so ummmm my 27% interest has been changed to 12.9% interest - yep an even better rate than the banks offer of 18% but without jumping through hoops or possibly being declined anyway - that makes a huge difference to my debt and to my repayments :-) sooooo friggin happy

Hi Mumsey - yes I heard about the rotter that didn't stop on FB :-( but I am glad you are improving in that regard - shame the docs can't get on top of your other health issues - may be time to look into some alternatives?? I found trying alternatives was what actually got me on the right track to get a diagnosis

TF - lol my budding filmmaker just got a new laptop and windows 8 is not very user friendly - we canot even get it to accept our printer either :-( I like a lot of aspects of WW but sadly never lost any weight doing it - I do like the tracking etc so hope it works well for you

Krystle - WOOHOO GO YOU - yeah we were really lucky with the weather and although it looks a bit worse for wear the house is still standing and the last of the kids left about 7.30pm last night :-) after two encounters with police (someone reported one of the girls as trying to commit suicide even though there were a dozen other teens with giant film gear and they told him what they were doing - dork - police were a little frustrated with him and put their flashing lights on for kids for film :-) and then later in the night they were filming a scene in a quiet road and the police stopped to advise them filming in the middle of a road wasn't very safe and let them use his headlights for some extra light for a while :-) good cops in Tauranga)

WC - great photos of the Gannets and Muriwai recently and the ones of Cornwall Park reminded me of some happy picnics there :-)

hi everyone,

Ive been without a computer for awhile so I haven't been around, finally got a new one and its a little hard to get used to the new set up. windows 8 everything is different and when I finally just got used to the old one, I have to get a new one arghhhhhhhhhhhhh, lol

anyway im sorry to hear of your trouble mumsey, I really hope you can find some answers soon and you can get back to your cheerful self.

I have started weightwatchers because I just wasn't doing it properly here at home, I think I needed some extra help, so I have done that and will stay accountable that way. im really liking the app on the mobile for tracking etc, it has a lot more new Zealand food to find so its more accurate- I can do it instantly and not have to remember what I ate when I get back home etc. so in that respect I think it will be heaps better for me anyway. its always on me and it just looks like im txting someone instead of having to explain what im doing etc. my first weigh in is on Wednesday so I will update here with that, as I no longer have scales at home. I will continue to track my fitness on this forum as its much better than the weight watchers one for options etc.

Hi all,
It's been a while so this might be a long one. I've been so busy with so many commitments and fitness lately it's been crazy. Last month I set myself the goal of doing 2000 fitness minutes in the month (not including hockey, umpiring, volleyball or my lunchtime walks) and man was it hard that last week trying to catch up after I had inevitably fallen behind. I think I average 110 minutes a day in the last 3 days. I may have over done it a little :S as I was feeling absolutely knacked but I pulled through and reached my goal yay! This month I am going to include my hockey training in my minutes so I don't wear myself out before the season starts.
Last month I also officially got into the women's intercity hockey team for Mt. Maunganui which I am absolutely stoked about, I got my restricted licence finally after previously failing twice in the last couple of years this has absolutely changed my life and I've only had it for just over a week! I didn't quite reach my goal to get down to 90kg by 31st March but I'm damn close. I've lost over 9kg now and I barely recognise my reflection which is so bizarre and to think I still have another 20kg to get down to a healthy BMI.
In other news, last night I went on my very first date ever. The guy is absolutely lovely and we are going to make plans for another date :D
Declare, is your house still intact after filming this weekend? At least the weather was pretty good. and Mumsey I hope you health improves soon

Hello
No I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.
I have been rally struggling with my health and there still doesn't seem to be any answers yet. (Still seeing the doctor for tests etc) and then two weeks ago I had an accident.

It wasn't my fault which is what really annoys me.I stopped at a stop sign but the guy a bit behind me didn't and just drove into the back of me pushing my car into the other road and even buckling my back car wheel with the force.
I have suffered some whip lash and general aches and pains but seem to be recovered from that.

My car still isn't fixed yet and thankfully the insurances covers it all. But it is so frustrating. mind you I am having to walk.

I am also struggling as I basically have to start all over again as I am right up to the weight I was when I first started - in three months it all came on And I had worked at it for two years.

I have been busy and tired so I just haven't made computer my priority. I am hoping that I can get back on so hopefully will be here more often.

Well it is Friday (YAY) and my daughter Miss soon to be 19, that went flatting earlier in the year is home for the weekend with 12 teenagers - she is a budding film-maker and is in a competition this week and her landlord would not let her host her team at her place - they get given a theme and usually about 3 key things that have to be included in the film tonight and then have 48hours to write a script, film, edit and submit it ... they have a lot of fun but it will be very loud at my place this weekend - and the weather man has just announced it is heavy rain all the way through ... could be interesting to see what effect that has

Hope you are all well and happy
