Jess's progress

Postby Jess » Mon Feb 11, 2008 1:30 pm

I was weighed at the doctors last week and I found out that I am now up to 103.7kg.
This is the heaviest i've ever been. Im disappointed that I let it get to this so i've decided to do something about it!
I've decided that im going to:
.Stop drinking sugary drinks
.Use the treadmill once a day and increase the amount of mins each day by + 1
.Increase the amount of fruit and veg i eat each day
.Indulge less often.
I've never dieted or even excercised before but im fairly motivated, im hoping with your support i can get down to around 80kg by october.
(in time for our trip to japan!!! :D )
please dont hesitate to share any tips, advice or stories with me!!!

You've got a great plan going so far Jess! I like the fact that you're concentrating on positives by adding healthy elements rather than just trying to control 'bad' things. Adding more fruit and veg is terrific. Not only does it mean less room for higher calorie foods, but soon you'll find yourself craving salad the same way you may have craved chips in the past (I know this worked for me at least!) And increasing your treadmill time by a minute a day is a really good way to slowly build up your exercise. Good on you! Good luck with your weight loss journey. I'm sure you'll get there. :)

hi jess,

I was in exactly the same position as you a couple of months ago - 105kg which scared the hell out of me. I've been doing sure slim & lost 26kgs so far, but I think your plan sounds really sensible & manageable & i'm sure you'll be down to 80 well before October. Best of luck! :)
26.1 kgs lost... 23kgs to go (and counting!)

Hi Jess,

Great plan, it's one you can use to help maintain your weight when you do lose all those kilos. You'll be down to 80 well before October as long as you stay motivated. Good luck, hope you find it a great life change.

Ok well, today was the healthiest day i've had in ages (minus the frozen coke at the cinema BUT i didnt get a large one so i figure thats pretty rad).
I did the treadmill thing first thing this morning, made my self a sarnie with ham and salad and had some grapes (sweet stuff is my weakness).
I made a delish stir fry with carrots and peas and corn and broccolini for dinner and after the movie i had a few bites of icecream and a carrot as a snack.
B/f offered me chocolate and i even had the will power to say no. Im a chocoholic from way back. It wasnt as hard as i expected and i didnt actually feel like I was missing out.

Im super super hungry now but i usually eat like a pig and can out eat most of our male friends(which is more than a healthy appetite, its gross really).
However im hoping that feeling hungry will be good for me for a little while because its around this time that i go ont he prowl for munchies.
I'm feeling really good and really motivated and happy that i have made a choice to do something positive for myself.
Even if I dont lose heaps of weight its nice that my head is slightly clearer than usual and im experiencing a more positive slant. we dont own scales, so im doing it to see the improvement and results in myself, not in the scales.
Also the b/f is super pleased and said he's well proud, which makes me happy, he's super encouraging.
That's about all for today.
Hope all is well.

Good on you, Jess! Saying no to a favourite treat is a huge thing. And it's great that you didn't feel like you were missing anything. It shows you're developing a new attitude towards food. Yay you!

I'm glad your boyfriend is being supportive. And I think it's terrific that you're finding positive reasons to change your lifestyle regardless of weight loss. Well done! Good luck with adjusting to your hunger signals. Just don't let yourself get too hungry! Even if you're eating healthy food portion control can go out the window once you allow yourself to get to a completely famished stage.

Sorry i didnt mean for that to sound sooooo uppity.. I just knwo that once we get scales im going to be obscessed with weighing myself so im trying to avoid that entire step (for now at least).
I avoided the munchies last night which im pretty pleased about. Hooray!
I love fruit and vegies i tend to just be so tired all the time that i opt for take out + I work at a supermarket so the easy foods are right there.. chips, chocolate, instant noodles etc etc... so im going to try to combat that with a frozen weight watchers meal and some fruit for the sugar fix.
I managed soemthing similar last week at work which wasnt tooo bad.

my biggest weakness is chocolate for breakfast and damn am i finding it hard right now not indulging in that but we're going healthy FTW! so hopefully it will all pay off.
Oh im going to the movies again tonight and we'll prolly end up having some sort of fast food for dinner, I think i'll go subway (although in all truthfulness i completely detest subway).

I used to hate Subway to but i put it down to a bad expeiance ( i got a sandwich at the airport and the lady put olives on which i hate but to make it worst she didn't drain them frist so it was a horrible soggy mess)
I have now become a fan of it. i love to have the roast chicken sub with the bread toasted no cheese i think all the salad and extra pickles (i'm one of those freaks that love pickles) and a small amount of mayo jst to moisten it. i love it. and now i am really hungry and keep thinking about it!

Im not a huge fan of meat so the only real fast food i eat is KFC ugh just thinking about it makes me want to be sick.
Subway isnt that bad i just hate how there is no bread to the bread, its mostly air.... also i hate hate hate pickles :P
what do you guys do when you are having a massive craving for something... anything junkie.. I know that it will stop eventually if i dont eat anything gross
but its hard to ignore it right now....

i didn't think you sounded uppity jess!

i have a love/hate relationship with subway - i do really enjoy some things but i think it's a lot of calories for not always a lot of substance. and i think it's kinda expensive as well. i know what you mean about the bread - it's not really substantial. i really like the roasted chicken, chicken fillet & chicken teriyaki but i do find that i get hungry reasonably soon after i eat a 6inch sub.

i have awful willpower - i give in to temptation way too often. but different people have different strategies though - for some people they give themselves a time limit - i.e. on this day you can have that treat or, if you wait an hour and still want it, then have it. other people get a smaller serve/size of whatever it is they want (i.e. a fun size chocolate instead of eating a big block).

also maybe if you eat more breakfast (as an example) you won't have such strong cravings during the day?

havent got that far yet... but yea i get what you mean. usually i start the day with some kind of sweet naughtyness.
i figured that would be the hardest thing to cut out as well as snacking after dinner.
Im not sure what to have for breakfast yet. But im sure once i sort that out i most likely wont feel the need for anything else.
