I ate scones and whipped cream... managed to stay about 18 calories under today though :)

I have about 150 pages to read plus 1 and a half modules of study to go before I've completed my week of study :)

U look very beautiful in your wedding photos. I like how u and ur husband swapped the colours around. I don't think u should be cringing at ur photos. I was drawn to ur face rather than your body, u can't see a big belly. be proud of them!

:'(

I have no idea what's going on... On Thursday I weighed 123kg... today I weigh 126kg :( I don't get it!!! I'm not going to accept it, and I'm gonna do it again tomorrow. I have a bit of gastro today so my body might be attempting to retain fluid?

You're right. It's probably your body trying to retain fluid to counter what you'd be losing with the gastro. Leave it a week and then re-weigh yourself. You want to give your body a chance to recover and lose that fluid weight.

Good luck. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Your body weight can fluctuate 1kg or so on a normal day - so if you've had a tummy upset or something, it's guaranteed to do somehting with your weigh in so don't worry, you won't have gained 3kg of body fat in just a matter of days- it'll be something to do with fluid retention.

Thanks for sharing your pics - I think you look lovely :)
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

I'm a little drunk at the moment, so excuse me if I ramble or misspell stuff.

I'm figuring I'll use those reception photos as my 'before' photos and that dress as kind of a measurement thing. I really don't like those photos and there's a lot of them that are not fit for public consumption :p

Well... today I read about 50 pages of the stuff. I still have the other hundred to go and tomorrow is a new week. Dang. I didn't get there. Tomorrow and Tuesday I'm hoping to plough through the rest of the weeks work, and then from Wednesday I want to go through about 4 modules of my Cultural Tourism subject so that I can do the assignment while I'm working through other modules of stuff. That's my first assignment, due on the 18th, then the next assignment is due 4 days after that, and then a 3rd one 4 days after that - so I need to get ahead on the first assignment so that the others aren't done in a rush. If that makes any sense whatsoever, it probably doesn't but in my drunken state it definitely does.

Well, I still haven't gone to sleep. I don't exactly know why and I feel completely dodgy!

Thank God this is a new week and a new day and I can start fresh again with weightloss and study :D

The plan is to keep myself awake to read the other 100 pages of text, have a mid-afternoon nap, and then wake up fresh to power on with study and begin my assignments! :) Should be completely fun :p

Are you still keen on having a walk tomorrow morning? I'm willing and able! Just message or txt me to let me know what your plans are. :D

It's a bummer you didn't sleep last night. Could it have been stress keeping you up? Hope your text reading and assignments are coming along well. And I hope you get a good night's sleep tonight!

I went to the gym on Wednesday and OMG... I'm STILL so sore!! I was meant to go again on Friday but something came up with hubby and his family that was important. Thankfully the *ahem* crisis *cough* is over and thankfully I should be going home this afternoon.

The sister in law is still here, but she's got a new boyfriend now so she's not here too often. I may be moving back here soon, and as soon as the sister in law moves out, hubby and I have big plans for her room and our room :p Gonna be awesome. I'll post pics of what we're thinking later.

Haven't weighed myself this week, still a bit too scared because it hasn't been a great week eating wise :(

Oh my gosh... I am finally home!!! *hugs laptop*

Today I had an internal crisis. I HATE the course I am doing at the moment. I'm doing a Bachelor of Business with a major in Tourism. It's boring as for me. I'm only doing it because I thought it would be an entryway into the whole Event Management thing for me, which is what I eventually want to do. I started doing it because at the time it was an offer from a uni (Bach of Arts with a major in Public Relations at that time) and it was too late to attempt to enrol at another tafe or uni, then half way through the year I decided to do a Bachelor of Business with the Tourism major because I thought that was closer to what I wanted to do than PR - Oh my god, how wrong was I?? I'm learning about stuff that I don't even CARE about, that I don't even want to learn about and that makes me want to shoot my freakin brains out every time I crack open a book.

So today I got AF and as I do, I kinda broke down a bit and felt as though I was a failure and I was never going to get to do the career that I want to do. I also felt like I was being frivolous if I quit this course and I should just do it no matter how much I hate it. Then hubby came home and cuddled me and I told him what my thoughts were and he said to do whatever I want to do, or just take a few more years off to figure it out. So I started looking around at unis and jobs and stuff, and I came across La Trobe University here in Melbourne who is offering the exact course that I want to take - a Bachelor of Business with a major in Tourism and Hospitality. The great thing is that La Trobe is known for doing a lot of hands on stuff, and the course isn't as boring as my current one is. I thought that it would still make me do things like Data Analysis and Accounting (which my current course is forcing me to do and doesn't even attempt to explain how this could be helpful when I'm doing EVENTS) - but La Trobe doesn't make me do those things per se - I have to do things like Computer Systems that are used in the hospitality/events industry and marketing in tourism. Things like that - but the major is ultimately Event Management, and they teach you things like restaurant operations, food and beverage service, how to organise accommodation and things like that. I mean - if when I get out I can't get a job in at least Restaurant/Hotel management then I'm stupid :p Anyway, so I'm really really psyched about it! I'm going to enrol to begin in Semester 1 next year, it's a 3 year course so I won't finish until 2011 but that's cool. I'm preferring this over a TAFE course just because I'm a snob and would prefer to go to Uni. So I'm feeling all happy and awesome now because I KNOW that I want to do Event Management and I've FINALLY found a course that will teach me what I want.

I'm attempting to figure out if I can enrol in different courses at my current uni for this semester, but I've decided I'm going to do a Literature course in summer semester at my current uni because I love to read and it'll be a nice course to do over the summer. I just have to get though this semester for now :s without killing someone preferably :p

Since I've been at hubbys I've been eating terribly - I had PMS, and all I wanted was CHOCOLATE! I'm serious. It was bad!! I ate a whole bag of fun size Boost and Milkyways and a few kinder suprises. I need to seriously work out! I'll either go tomorrow or Friday. I haven't been this week at all because I didn't have my workout stuff with me. I have to catch up on studying as well, I haven't been able to get through much at all. Soo much to do and so little time! Onward I suppose :p Onward with the painful subjects...

Ahh... I went about 18 hours without a cigarette the other day - cold turkey. Then when I got to hubby's his mum was smoking and I cracked and smoked a few of hers over the time I was there. I think I probably had about 3 a day which is good. Now I'm just trying to find my scissors so I can put on a patch! I NEED to QUIT! NOW!!

I'm beginning to take on EWQ's philosophy to weight loss - just take it slowly and take it as it comes as it's a life-long journey. I haven't weighed myself for nearly 3 weeks (which I suppose is good), and I'm beginning to lose the mentality of good and bad foods - well except for the overconsumption of chocolate. I think maybe I should try eating carob instead from now on :s Doesn't matter anyway, the cravings have passed. For now. I'm beginning not to care about my weight loss... oh no... someone quick - make me care!!

Ok - so I caved in with the smokes, but today I am smoke free and have a patch on :)

I weighed myself today however... I'm 127kgs :( Serves me right for all that chocolate :'( But now I'm sad... Although, apparently 61kgs of my body weight is muscle according to my scales :s If that's true... does that mean that I'll never get down to 60kg? I don't understand :s I'm hoping that a little of this weight is water retention weight because my ankles have been swelling a bit lately and I've been drinking lots of coffee and very little water just to try to get me through study.

Ok, I have goals this week:

- Eat healthier than I was in the last 3 weeks
- Go to the gym at least 3 times

Guess I'm not gonna be 100kg-ish by christmas afterall :'(

This is what I feel like at the moment:

Image

I've got all the rolls, the fat face, the yucky arms, the giant stomach and the feral legs. I've got stretch marks EVERYWHERE and I hate it. So far today I've eaten lasagne and about 10 pieces of chocolate. Last night was bad. I ate pretty healthy until dinner at which point I pigged out. I feel like I'm NEVER going to lose this weight :'( I'm going backwards! I don't know how to keep myself motivated...

A little help? Please??

Managed to stay well under my calorie intake today... even with eating fattening two minute noodles and ice-cream :D

I'm going back to having protein shakes for lunch, simply because they're really quick (doesn't interrupt my study) and they keep me full for ages if I have two. Make me burp a lot though... I think I'm gonna go to the gym tomorrow, just because I need to relax. I'm so wound up at the moment, everything is getting to me and I feel like study is getting me nowhere. The great cosmos told me so, by not letting me log into my uni website for the last hour... I've pretty much come to terms with the fact that I cannot do one of my assignments - it's waay to confusing and there's so little info out there it's not funny. Is it just me, or is the internet getting more stupid?

I pretty much don't want to study any more, at least, not tourism. It's boring for me. I'm going to TAFE next year (I think I've been saying that at the beginning of every semester...) to get hands on experience in hospitality stuff and might keep on at uni doing an English Lit/Drama major, just coz I love it. I would do it for a living if it didn't involve teaching :p (I have no patience)

So it's been four days without a smoke. Maybe that's why I'm so on edge?? I haven't even left the house for fear of walking past a smoker, or weakening at the supermarket and just getting a packet. Tomorrow I'm going to brave the big bad world!!

I thought I would post up some inspirational quotes, just to keep it going:

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore,is not an act but a habit. - Aristotle

The best way out is always through. - Robert Frost

Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall. - Confucius

Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is. - Vince Lombardi

Failures do what is tension relieving, while winners do what is goal achieving. - Dennis Waitley

Congratulations on giving up the smokes.. that would have a big impact on how you feel and food intake etc.. your body will be going through alot of changes that your not used to .. don't underestimate how much stress your body is under duing the withdrawal stage. Be Kind to yourself.. try and relax as much as possible.. walks, baths, have your hair done, make your own face mask.. anything other than food to cure the edginess.. and keep you busy. Clean the house.. so what you have to do! (Secret: I smke.. and im so scared of giving it up because i dont want to gain MORE weight) .. however, I know my life will be 100% better if i gave them up and put on a little .. they say it takes as many months to properly give up as you were smoking for. I.e: 15 years of smoking = 15 months to get over smoking.

A friend of mine just gave up and i send her a text message everyday in the morning to remind her she can do it!

Good luck YellowRoses.. You can do it! And remember to be kind to yourself.. your taking alot on all at once but you will get through and your body will be a machine!

Wow Indi! I didn't know that!! I've been smoking since I was 14 (so about 5 years now)... that's a long time!! I thought I was doing well coz I've managed nearly 5 days :p I am kinda scared to put on weight, but I'd rather put on weight then end up with lung cancer or emphysema. I was listening to the radio the other day, and there's this ad, it tells you to take one big breath in, hold it for a few seconds, then try to take a small second breath in, and then release the small breath, and then take another small breath in, and then release the small breath, and repeat it... apparently that's what emphysema feels like in its later stages and all smokers have an early stage of emphysema. So that just kinda hit home for me. At least putting on a few kilo's I know I can do something about it immediately so as to not cause long term health complications.

I haven't gone to the gym yet today, I've caught a cold from my housemates!! Woke up with a stuffy nose, and cough and a heavy head :( My housemate was kind enough for bring me cold and flu tablets during his lunch break though :) So I should be better soon!! I've got until 8pm to go to the gym... I don't know when I'm gonna go because I don't want lots of people around while I'm exercising (coz I'm paranoid). I probably wont go because I think I'm getting worse :(

Have to get back to the study I suppose. Gotta try to make a little go at it!
