SW: 121.8kg
6/9/09: 120.6kg
13/9/09: 119.2kg
20/9/09: 118.9kg
Total Lost: 2.9kg in 3 weeks :) Not too shabby!

Only a loss of 300g this week, but a loss is a loss really. This journey is gonna take me a loooong time, and I'm prepared for that!!
Only got 21.9kg and 18 weeks to go! Still averages out to a loss of 1.2kg per week. If I start to have some smaller losses in the next coming weeks I will re-evaluate my goal weight.

I've been doing really cruddy again lately. I'm back on track today though, thank goodness!! I am kinda hoping for a 1kg loss this week, to keep my average at about 1kg per week, but I doubt I'll get there. Maybe a 500g loss is more realistic, but a loss is a loss. I'm not weighing in daily anymore, I think it's a bit toxic to me. Last week was a disaster, this week I hope it's not another disaster!! I've got 1.2kg to my 10kg mark, and I really would love to get there and wave it goodbye (as in have it behind me!) in the next 2 weeks.

I'm trying to study at the moment, but procrastinating a little bit. I've already done an hour, do I reaaallly have to do more???

Re: 21 weeks to my 21st Personal Challenge!

Well I had a gain!!! :( Sad... I gained 1kg this week, but that was pretty much expected considering that I really just couldn't get myself completely back on track foodwise. On the plus side however, I think a large part of the gain may have been muscle. I got a Wii with Wii Fit, Wii Active, Wii Sports & My Personal Trainer a few days ago and have been working out like a fiend. In the last 2 weeks I have lost 1.5cm off each arm, 2.5cm from each thigh, 1cm from my waist and FINALLY 1cm from my hips!! In total I have now lost 26cm off my body in just 13 weeks (since I joined weight watchers and started tracking it).

I've got 17 more weeks left in this challenge, and I think I might up my goal to being under 100kg. It's close to my previous goal and is still on average about 1.2kg per week. This gain has set me back a little bit, but as I said earlier, I will keep reassessing as I go along. If I can get back on track foodwise and starting working out consistently then I really don't see an issue in having some big losses in the next few weeks and then my losses getting more steadily around the 1kg mark. Honestly, as much as I would like to be under 100kg for my bday, even if I'm not I'll still have come a long way - this is for life, not for an event. I have to keep reminding myself of that! I would like to be as close to double digits as I can get. If that means that I'm giving it my all and only losing 500g a week, then that's all I'll lose - as long as I try my hardest.

Well this week was really really tough. I quit smoking on Thursday (the 1st), and I went crazy with food as I didn't really know any other way to keep myself from smoking. I ate TERRIBLY!!! But I exercised nearly every single day this week, and ate well up until Thursday. So this week I lost 100g, and am now at 119.8kg. I'm happy with that considering... I've found a stress ball and it's really helping me to distract myself when I feel like I want a smoke. So yay!

Hopefully this week I can get fully back on track and have a better loss.

Well done Yellow Roses, I know how hard giving up smoking is, im now on my 5th week without a smoke and feeling fabulous, it doesnt even worry me anymore when Im around other smokers most of the time it smells awful to me these days. I started off on the patches but around the fifth day id had it with them I had a bad reaction to them and itched like mad and had awful blisters I will now have a scar to remind me of it all, after that I just went cold turkey which has worked fine- but I definatly think you need something to get you over that first three or four days or you would go mad.

Best of luck with your journey, I really hope you reach your goals and i only wish id had the foresight to do the same thing. I turned 21 last year, I looked at the photos and videos the day after and promptly went and bought a wii and wii fit out of some of my birthday money (best thing I ever did) and when I weighed in 125.2kg flashed up, I was shattered! Im now 22 and weigh 87.6kg and only wish id done it all a year earlier.

Keep it up and stay motivated, I promise its worth it and you can do it :!:

I am really really struggling atm... I'm doing well with quitting smoking, but last week I ate really badly and gained 1.4kg, and this week hasn't been going much better. I just feel hungry ALL the time and I really crave sweet things. To add to that my workload at uni has just been piling up and I just feel stressed. I don't know how to get back on track :( There's 15 more weigh ins before my bday, and I would really love to have lost about 13 to 14 kgs by then - bring me down to 107/108kg, 10kg from my original goal. I really wanted to be under 100kg, but I highly doubt it - even if I lost my original goal of 1.2kg per week I still wouldn't get down to below 100kg.

Depressing... but at least I'll be healthier and better looking still - as long as I keep at it!
