I'm fighting with myself now....and laughing about it!

We have chocolate and caramel mud cakes in the kitchen....I'm not really hungry but I want some! Last week when the only exercise I did was one hour of netball, I wouldn't have given it a second thought and just have had it....actually, I probably would've had a piece of each! This week, when I could get away with a little piece (I have 3 x 1.25 hours of bootcamp, 1 hour of netball and hoping to do at least 2 x 1 hour gym sessions or classes) I just can't do it?!?!? WTF?! hahaha! :lol: :? :mrgreen:

My particulars are:

Heigh - 168cm
Starting Weight - 74.5kg
Current Weight - 72.5kg
Target Weight - 65kg

I have a wedding to go to on the 23rd January and my goal has been to get under the 70kg mark, so 3 kilos in around 3.5 weeks. The process has been long and hard so far with an average weight loss of .5kg - but nothing this week :evil: so unsure if I'll make it, but I'll try my hardest.

My 'normal' diet diary during the week includes:

Breakfast - Uncle Tobys Oats and sometimes a glass of carrot juice (yuck!)
Morning tea - Museli bar
Lunch - wholemeal or multigrain roll or s/w with turkey, kraft free chesse and salad and an apple
Afternoon tea - piece of fruit
Dinner - salad (sometimes with chicken or steak, but mostly on its own)
Snack - icy pole / low fat ice cream /paddle pop.

I go to the gym every night after work (unless something important is on, like my mums birthday tonight!) and do either a 30 or 45 minute circuit and eat fairly healthily during the week.

I guess it's the weekends that let me down...I have the philosophy that if I'm good ALL week, then I'll be 'good' to myself on the weekend. Being good to myself is turning out to be bad (a glass or 2 of wine, some extra carbs, a day off from the gym) so no more of that - at least for the next 3 weeks.

So - for the next 3 weeks I aim to:
Maintain my diet
NO alcohol (even on weekends)
A minimum of 6 gym classes
30 minute walk in the morning before work
100 ab crunches at home before bed
No carbs after 4pm
No eating at all after 8pm
1.5-2L water a day

As a reward - if I get to my goal of under 70kg by 23.2.08, as well as looking fabulous at the wedding, I'm going to indulge myself and go for a massage...yah!!

Fingers crossed :P


Good Luck, I pray to you and I hope you will reach you Goal..... 8) 8)

They do trading on ebay as well. Only thing is if it doesn't come back exactly like you want you don't have much time to get a new one. I'm definately tempted to give it a go, so much cheaper then buying from a store and it can look exactly the same. Try having a look at http://forum.weddingcentral.com.au there is a thread on that sort of thing and it will give you loads of different suppliers for your local area.


Tarz....you are a little legend!!! This forum is great and they've all said brilliant things about Zero-Love....I'm going for it!

Thanks a MILLION!!!
