Well last weigh in on Friday had me at under 64kg! Haven't been this weight since I don't know when! Feeling really good about it too :) Had a road trip down to Hawkes Bay last weekend to visit one of my sisters and family. Took the dog wit... Read more
Still only 1.5kg to go!

Well a month later and I'm still the same weight! Another plateau it would seem! So time for a change - 1) I've stopped doing Jenny Craig - it was great doing this for a while. Taught me a lot about portion size. But I'm sick of their foo... Read more

Well, I'm getting closer to my goal weight, but it seems kind of like one of those things that you've been working towards for so long but it seems like you'll never get there! ... Read more

It would seem I haven't blogged here for over a month! I'm still going strong with Jenny Craig, but am now doing it only 5 days per week and am doing 2 days on my own. They have really good recommendations for the number of serves per day o... Read more

I find that each morning while I'm out walking that I have in my head this image of my body. It is especially there when I'm walking up hills as I can feel my AB muscles engage. I see myself as slim and athletic, with a tanned body, and a flat s... Read more

Well after weighing myself at home this morning and calculating my BMI, I am happy to report I have JUST made it into the healthy range! 24.9 is the upper limit of healthy, and that is what I am! Very excited and pleased! ... Read more

. . . It's really nice to see something concrete that motivates me towards my goal! I started Jenny Craig about a month ago, as found that I had been sitting on a plateau for a few months, eating well and exercising lots, but going nowhere.... Read more

Well I finished my 28-day bootcamp workout last week, and hadn't really thought about my next exercise plan. So this week I have been getting up and going out for a walk each morning. The weather isn't completely ideal for this at the moment a... Read more

Not much of a loser :(

Well I only lost 100g in the past week according to the scales at JC. To be honest I'm disappointed as I only had one meal where I didn't follow the plan, I exercised really well, and even didn't drink that much wine! ... Read more

Well it would seem my scales agree with the ones at Jenny Craig as they are now also showing that I have lost weight! There's nothing a like a new battery to get things working again :) My scales do weigh me about 2kgs lighter than the ones... Read more

Well today I made 3 different types of sourdough bread - ciabatta, Swedish cardamom buns and Pain de Campagne (French country loaf) - and it was great! I had only planned to make the first 2 breads, but had a lot of starter culture left over so ... Read more
What I've learnt
Thursday, April 26, 2012      4 comments

From doing one week of the Jenny Craig programme: - my portion size was wrong . . . Too big - even though I've been eating good clean food, I've been eating too much, and too much of anything is bad - my snacks have been too big - I ... Read more
