Aww thanks Kim. I do feel like I'm getting a handle on it now. I camp with a friend who is also on the weightloss path but just goes back to the old pattern of eating bad things while camping. Fish and chips was on the menu for the first night but I opted for chicken, boiled potatoes and salad :) I'm not letting fish and chips ruin this journey for me! Lots of people are commenting about my weightloss now an when I tell them that I have 15kgs left to lose they say I'll be too thin! I think they're just too used to seeing the fat me though an some of them have never known the slim me!! They will do soon though :)

We you're doing great rach! That's definitely the trick, finding realistic substitutes for the foods that can sabotage progress.

As Mr Burns would say, "Excellent!".

Great job. Watch out for the backlash from your body as it rebels from getting this result. Keep it going.

This is a very hard time of the year to get a number like this. You should be proud of yourself. Now reach into the 70's! :D

Ok ... I braved the scales after a big weekend ... Was going to dodge it hence the reason for weighing Friday, but I didnt! :) Happy to report another 300g loss! That put me at 84.1kgs ! Can't wait to see those 70s next year! :)

Time to face the music this morning! I haven't weighed since 17th December so I could be set for a big kick up the ass! Food intake hasn't been bad (apart from trifle and portion control Christmas Day and Boxing Day), but alcohol intake after another camping trip has been excessive!! I have 100% managed to kerb my snacking though which I'm really pleased with. No chocolates or cheese and crackers over the holiday period is a massive step forward for me!

That's the positives high lighted ... I guess it's time to face the music now!! :oops: :shock: wish me luck!!

Well we'll well ...I guess the daily exercise and no snacking on junk helped because I have come away with a 300g loss! VERY happy with that!

Happy New Year everyone!

Weighed in today and am down to 82.1kgs! Weigh in days have been a bit sporadic over the holidays, plus my bowels are giving me a bit of an issue, so I'm kinda jumping in the scales when I think the time is right!! Haha!!

Faced a fear of mine yesterday (heights and water!!) and climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge!! I honestly don't think I would have pushed myself to do it before this weight loss. I was terrified the entire time but so happy that I managed to do it! It was actually more psychologically challenging than it was physically!

Another 2.2kg and you will be in the 70's!

I hate numbers like 82.1kg - I always wished that I worked that little bit more to wipe that 0.1 away and get that even round number! Crazy I know but that is how my mind works. :roll:

Bet the view from the bridge was wonderful. With weight loss comes more confidence but more importantly a real lust for life. Life is no longer a spectator sport! Two Saturdays ago I took a helicopter fun flight. When I was overweight I had developed a giddiness about heights which has since gone away with the weight. Really enjoyed the experience...an experience that I would not have attempted in my heavier days.

Keep the roughage up to help your bowels along. :lol:

I'm going slowly, but I'm still going!! 700g down today (that's in 2 weeks) but I haven't really been focusing on weight loss much over the school holidays. Over the moon that I've lost weight during this period. I have trained myself out of chocolate and cheese and crackers etc which I think it massive for me. I kind of think if it as a food intolerance now! If there is chocolate in front of me its not an option for me to eat any!! Previously it wouldn't have been an option for me NOT to eat any, and not finishing the entire bar (king size!) was a NO NO!! Haha!!
Yay ... I've retrained my brain!! Haha!!

So the 70s loom ever more closely! 81.4kgs today! Time to start exercising again and get my game face on!! :)

You've got it! It is about training our brains. Learning to live a healthy lifestyle. :D

School holidays do cramp the style a bit. There is only a certain amount of exercise that a kid will tolerate before they will kick up! :shock:

Work it hard and reach the 70's!

Thanks for the support as always Kim!

I jumped on the scales this morning (don't really have an actual weigh in day anymore) and noted another 700g has left my body!

I'm now 80.7kgs!! Soooo close to those 70s!!! :)
