Thanks Sharelle :)

I never said your "diet sucks". Firstly, never use the word "diet" and secondly, neither do I use the word "sucks"(dreadful word...almost as bad as "diet"!). I did say that you can make more healthier choices.


Sorry, but I can't win. That is what i've been saying all along. I don't 'diet'. I add everything to my daily intake, just in portions. I believe in everything in moderation. And when I said 'diet', I meant my diet as in my 'daily food intake'. Don't be so hung up on what words people use.

I do understand that you have made changes in your food intake...my suggestions are designed to help you further those changes and save you the frustration of failure down the track.


You can't make ALL the changes at once. If you understand i've made changes, then encourage and support that.

Hey Karen, cakes, bread, what ever floats your boat I say you can have but not huge amounts. It is about reducing your habits and not eliminating them altogether. Blitz has had some great advice in the past ie, once you forbid something you crave it. I love pink doughnuts from Donut King, I love cream on my hot weet bix, I love cream on anything (funny though I hate ice cream), I love a wine many nights after work, I love cheese, any cheese, melted on anything! I have never said I am not to have these but I won't have them every day....they are my treat and I have them on occasions without feeling guilty as they are a treat. I counter act it by eating something healthy to balance out. I make sure I have veggies that night, a smoothie or fresh squeezed juice (I hate eating fruit) etc.


Wholeheartly agree. Which is why I eat the way I do. I was making a point of how much I have changed things this past week to Kim. I will continue to add the foods I love into my day. As long as it fits into my calories, i'm one happy girl and my body reacts well to that and loses the weight. It works for me. The main reason for writing this food diary is to prove to people that they don't have to make drastic changes to lose the weight. They can eat all the foods they love, just in moderation :)

This forum drifts people in and out. Sometimes it is quite and other times it is busy.....just one of those things - many people now a days do social media but I prefer forums as they are more private and you tend to have a common thread without the crap.


I just hope that it isn't going quiet again due to people not getting the support they need during the weight loss journey.

Hope you stay but understand if you leave, we only wish you all the best and you have done well, pat yourself on the back and have cake!


Thanks heaps! :D

The point of my last post wasn't to say that diet is a dirty word but rather that I never said "your diet sucks" (the actual words were "when I am told that my diet sucks now") as you verballed me as saying.

As Sharelle has pointed out I'm a great advocate of all things in moderation. This idea of placing foods in bad and good lists is warped. But having said that there is such a thing as having too much of a good thing. That is why I speak in terms of making healthy and wise decisions. If you are trying to lose weight (the foremost goal of those on this Forum) then it is not helpful to your success blowing your points or daily calorie allowance on high calorie/low gut satisfaction food instead of food that will provide "gut satisfaction" (or as Tams put it well the other day...hearty food). To do so is setting yourself up for failure.

I am trying to encourage and support you even if you don't feel it or see it now. Here is a question for you to think about...why do I bother? Why do I continue to speak out and cajole you into right action? What's it matter to me how you act, believe or think about weight loss? If it is a power or ego trip my day job could satisfy that lust without coming here...the reason is simple - I've been in your shoes - I know what it is like to be overweight and I want to help you and others like you to have that better future that I know is possible.
In sport, the coach is often vilified as he pushes the team or the individual athlete to greatness. You are capable of so much more than you believe is possible and I'm try to rest you out of that place of complacency. Change isn't easy - life isn't easy...but in that struggle is the path to success. 8)

These series of posts started with my casual observation: "Karen, it will be very interesting to see how you go at your next weekly weigh in." and my reasoning why I believe it would be interesting - and a challenge for you to consider.
Clearly you see no problem...so let your next weigh in prove me totally wrong. I, believe it or not, would welcome that outcome! It gives me no pleasure to see you or anyone fail. So Karen have you got the passion to stick it out and prove me wrong? I hope so. If successful weight loss is about anything it is about having the passion to see it through and do whatever it takes to get that better future. :D

I have decided to hang around for a little bit and try to show others that this can be done your own way and still lose weight.

Today is going to be my 'free night' instead of Saturday night as I felt it was too close to weigh in day today so I won't record my food diary today but i'll be back in tomorrow :)

Coffee for m/tea at a client's house. Lunch was a sweet potato cooked with 100gm of chicken mince. It was quite tasty and something different to have. I also had a coffee with lunch. A/tea was a pkt dip and crispbread and 2 coffees. It's so cold here today!! About to head out to the drs to get results from a x-ray my son had on his toe (he bent it backwards 3 weeks ago and it's still swollen and sore) and also results from my daughter's CT scan on her back. She's been complaining of back pain when she bounces on trampoline and plays sport. Hopefully they both come back clear. Dinner will be beef stir fry with teryaki sauce and hokkien noodles...mmmm. That will take me to a total of 1371 calories for the day :)

Funny...my wife says I'm hard work at times as well! :? :lol:

Good breakfast choice...try cutting up the banana and putting it on weetbix for that extra taste treat. 8)

That's what I did - YUM!! :)

This morning, I woke up with a head cold thanks to my 2nd son :( Feeling a little miserable but off to work I go. At least I only have 2 smal jobs today. My son's x-ray showed that he did indeed fracture his toe. He does complain about so many things though, so it's so hard to tell when it's something or not. Not much you can do for a fractured toe though, just rest and strap it together with the other toe. He had district athletics coming up which he will have to miss.

Breakfast this morning consisted of 2 slices of vegemite toast and a coffee. I also had a small glass of apple juice to have my cold tablets with, for some reason it's harder to take the tablets with just water - blergh!

M/tea was 10 almonds and a cup of chai tea (1 sugar). Lunch was mushroom, tomato and one egg on 1 slice of toast. Calories are up to 756 so far with 584 leftover for a snack this afternoon and dinner.

How many calories was that for lunch???
Only asking because I had that "quick" lunch snack of corn thins, cheese and tomato, and all under 200 cals which is great because I like "leftover calories" it means I can sneak in a "treat"!!! :lol:
