Scales still aren't better... but I'm having a terrible week so far. I've been eating so much chocolate and cookies :( I feel gross and oily, but I'm also stressed like crazy :( I have 8 days until my first exam and 10 days until exams are over. I'm studying about 12 - 14 hours a day and I just feel tired and dodgy. Cannot wait until this is all over and I can get back into focusing on myself.

Cool, I just got my first comment on my weight loss :) My FIL said 'you've lost weight have you?' - felt so good :)

lol it really did! The last time I lost weight when I was 16/17, I lost nearly 20kgs and nobody said anything about it! :o Lol obviously that 3.7kg has done something to me somewhere that I cant see...

Going back to WW and exercising today (finally!) because I don't have to do my exams until next semester now. Feel pretty ok so far - just about to go to the gym.

Thanks sue :D I really did!! I learned how to use the weight machines FINALLY and I now have a program put together for me :) I feel super sore now, but will be taking the doggie for a walk tomorrow and then to the gym on Saturday for Aquarobics :D I'm hoping that the exercise will jump start my body into doing something (hopefully losing weight...) lol! I think I might just break even this week and be 124kg, but hopefully I can lose something, even if it's just 100g. Then next Monday it's BOOT CAMP TIME! :lol: I am going to diiiieeeeee..............................

Didn't go to boot camp yesterday - I couldn't wake up! :( I did go to the gym today though, did 20mins walking, 8mins cycling and arm and leg weights. I also walked to the gym (15mins). I haven't eaten anything today though because I was just too busy. We're renovating at the moment and I just forgot! I'm making myself a vegetarian lasagne for dinner which is only 12 points for the entire lasagne and there's about 4 - 6 serves in it, so about 2 or 3 points per serve. How awesome is that :)

I'm having a really hard time sticking to my points for the last couple of days :( I really don't know why - I start the day off well, and then halfway through the day, it's like I give up :( GRRRRR....

Ok ok, I CAN DO THIS! I am strong, determined, and have already come a fair way. I've tried for too long and worried too much about this to give up and I owe it to myself to see this whole thing the whole way through. I will eat properly from right now because I can and I need to and it's good for me.

YAY! I went to my first class tonight :) a Boxing Workshop - it was fun and tiring and left me sweating and hurting, but it was great. There was only 2 other people in the class though who were about my size, so that felt good that I wasn't the only big person there.

I went off track again today with my eating :( Lol! Its so funny - this week I'm going good with exercise but bad with food when in the past I've been going good with food but bad with exercise... Now I just need them to go hand in hand in the same week and I'm set! :lol: I doubt I'm gonna lose any weight again this week, and might be looking at another gain (last week was a gain of 900g), but I'm going to try to correct still for the rest of this week. I want to get fully back on track with eating and maintain this decent exercise regime and then I'll be laughing all the way to the weight loss bank :p I would really love to hit 119.9kg by the end of July - at least that way I can hopefully have lost about 10kgs by the time I go to Launceston in August. Guess we'll see how I go though!

I've been reading Magda's blogs today on the JC site, to get some inspiration, and it's nice to know that even a celebrity like her goes through rough patches in their weight loss journey. She's come so far! I can get there too! Tomorrow is another day, another day to try to fix my eating :) Going to the gym again tomorrow (and that will make 3 times this week!)..

Hrm, I still don't know my proper weight. On Saturday morning I weighed 124.5kg, but then I went to an engagement party and ate and drank waaay too much - and on Sunday I weighed 127.4kg - I know most of it was water weight (had a terrible hangover) - but it didn't make me feel good at all :(

I'm having so much trouble getting back on track with my eating!!! I'm going to the gym at least 3 times this week - tomorrow morning for an aquarobics class, thursday for a PT session and one more time to do boxing workshop again (coz it was fun!). I'm trying to be good with eating, but I'm finding it difficult at lunch time - I get soo hungry that I just stuff my face with whatever is nearby and usually too much of it :'( I'm SO SICK of being like this... I DON'T WANT TO GIVE UP! Look how long its taken me just to lose 3.7kg - if I go back that's 9 weeks wasted :(

On the bright side, my sweet cravings have gone away! Yay :) DH seems to think my lunch hunger is due to the fact that I don't have a snack between breakfast and lunch, so I'm going to try that to see if there's any difference in being able to stay on the good path...

Wish me luck :) I would really love to kick the 124s in the butt and get down to 123.5kg this Sunday...

Give the morning, and if possible afternoon, snacks a go. I have been doing this for the last few weeks and it definitely takes the edge off :) .

What should I have for a snack? I've got some fruit, and some weight watchers sweets (like carrot cake, bikkies and some ginger kisses), I've also got yoghurt and stuff. Should I have a piece of fruit and a slice of toast or something?
