A happy weigh-in

Friday, September 06, 2013

I have managed to stay on track all week, no slips at all and it has paid off – another 1,5 kilo down.

But I have to admit that instead of dancing with joy, I get very impatient to lose one more because then it will be ten kilos lost since I started this successful streak.

I am also impatient to pass the number were I get from "extreme obese" to "very obese".

But in honesty, the week has been a little too hard, I have been thinking a lot about food and the evenings has been really bad. Losing half a kilo a week is a lot more comfortable and probably more healthy too.

I did slip a little yesterday evening, still had many calories left after dinner but was not really hungry. Daughter had micropopcorn and I was seriously considering to go to the store and buy chocolate... but the weigh-in this morning stopped me - instead I snacked on the squid I am experimenting with. I have bought this really great squid salad at the place where I buy sushi and it is really good – and ridiculously expensive so I have wondered if I could reproduce it in my kitchen... bought squid and googles around how to prepare. It said in all places that you either fry it shortly or boil it for very long otherwise it will turn rubber... so I boiled it until it gelt really soft when I tried it with a pin and then let it cool down in the water I boiled it in (salted) Then I cut it in pieces and marinated it in tamari... ad now I can´t continue to construct the salad as I snacked on it yesterday - delicious!

We are going for a performance today, it is more than one hours drive, that´s the negative part. It is also negative that I have no one to care for doggy, he will be alone for more than six hours (which is agaisnt the law in Sweden thses days. I am thinking of bringing him along but it might be a hot day and he does not really like to go in the car... I will decide when I see what the weather looks like.

I will be very light on my feet today, nine kilos lighter than the last time I performed this show...

    emoticon on your weight loss and for resisting the chocolate. Squid, huh? I've never had it...sounds like an interesting alternative to chocolate...and if it works for you, that's awesome. It's finding the little ways to substitute and keep ourselves on track that are so important and you've got that covered. Keep up the good work! emoticon

    Congrats on your 9kg loss! I know it's hard to focus on our goal, when every sweet calls our name... You were very strong yesterday, keep in mind all the positive feelings you had with resisting and losing for hard moments like these ones.

    Good luck with your performance and for your dog!

    I'm hoping you can still find someone to take care of the dog, or maybe just walk him after a few hours.

    That's wonderful that you are near the 10 kg mark! I'm trying to remember when you started this challenge - when was it? How many more kilo's until you can say you're 'very obese' not 'extreme obese'?

    Be proud of yourself. You're doing good work.

    Any weight loss is better than a nudge in the wrong direction. emoticon How do kilos compare to pounds? Sounds like Sweeden is leaps and bounds ahead of the USA is requiring responsible pet care laws. emoticon

    9 kilos is quite an accomplishment! I wish you all the best in your performance. While I was on my vacation it occurred to me that I was 30 pounds lighter than I was the last time I took a trip. It's much easier to get around now that I'm fitter.
