Thanks EWQ :)

I tried the eating a small amount and waiting for 20 minutes technique last night at dinner time... I ate slowly and then after I'd finished my plate I sat for about 30 minutes, chatting to hubby about stuff, and then I was still starving, so I got twice the amount as what I had the first time :( After I finished it though I was full (but not like "OMG I cannot fit another thing in my mouth otherwise I will explode" kind of full - I'm talking like "Ok, I'm satisfied now" kind of full.) So I don't know... I ate lasagne and each piece was about the size of a cigarette pack.

I weighed myself this morning, and despite all the pigging out, in the last 4 days I've lost 1.5kg (Went from 125.7 to 124.2), so I think even the breakfast and lunch is doing something, even if I am overeating at dinner time. Still going to try to stop it though! Hubby has suggested having tuna salad (With a couple of small tins of tuna, and a whole bunch of veges with a bit of low fat dressing over the top) - it always fills me up and is really low in calories even though I have a MASSIVE bowl of it! But only until I get used to eating differently and I can start to ease myself into the shakes for dinner. I won't be officially starting the 12 weeks of shakes until I can get the three shakes a day and a small bowl of green veges down pat.

So I bought a bike a few weeks ago, and I couldn't ride it because the seat was all hard and hurt really bad and I didn't have a bike chain - so today I finally got both of them and so now I can ride to the gym and ride around! Helps with my hip because I still can't walk long distances because it gets really sore. I just went for a ride for 10 minutes and it was super fun! I remember how much I loved it :)

Starting tomorrow I'm going to the gym again!

Hi yellow, long time no see, hows things? Good on you for getting a bike, I have promised myself I am going to get one in the new year sales, with the intention of riding to school with Matt and then going back later in the afternoons to pick him up . It's been years (and I do mean years-around 22 or 23) since I have ridden. I have tried to get on hubbies but it is way to big, as in height , for me. Let us know how you get on with it.

Congrats on getting a bike. It's great that you managed to get in comfortable by swapping the seat. I should do the same with my exercise bike!

Ok. I'm DEFINITELY starting at the gym tomorrow. DH got really really sick for the last 2 weeks, and I've had to look after him for the last week because he couldn't even walk :( He's much much better now, so starting from tomorrow afternoon (about 2pm) I'm going to go to the gym. My goal for this week is to:

1) Go to the gym at least twice for half an hour of low impact cardio exercise. Monday and Friday this week, leave the house at 2pm.
2) Try to eat smaller meals, but stick to the rule: Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper. Also eat snacks between meals - try to make these fruit or a protein (possibly half a protein shake if I feel like it).

I'm still a fatty... but I want to do it healthily for once, instead of a 'quick loss' diet.

Ok, I thought it was about time for me to resurrect this thread, and stop posting daily in the challenges area for my 17 week challenge.

I started trying to lose weight again on the 26th of April. I started doing weight watchers alone with the books, and in the first 9 weeks I lost 3.7kg, and gained 1.4kgs. I joined Weight Watchers online 2 weeks ago, so that calculating my points is easier for me, and they've got great recipes and motivational forums that I really enjoy. In the last 2 weeks I've managed to lose 3kgs. So far I've been on weight watchers for 11 weeks, and have lost 5.3kgs. I'm pretty excited about that, because this is the longest I've been able to stick with it - I'm hoping that this will be the last time that I will be 'back on the wagon', I want to make it stick forever this time. I think the motivation mainly came from looking over my previous posts from since I joined this forum - when I first joined I was 97kg, and since then I whacked on 30kgs. It just shows me that if I don't do it now, I will continue to gain, just like I have in the past.

I keep changing my final goal, but for now it's 70kg, because it will give me a BMI of 25. I have a larger bone structure, so I don't expect to be in the mid to low 20s of the BMI. But once I get there I will see how I feel and look.

I've been going to the gym about once a week or so, getting into boxing classes and weights especially. I'm also experimenting a lot with different foods to keep my diet varied. I also start a REAL uni in about 2 weeks, which I'm excited about. I'm wondering how the incidental exercise will affect my weight loss...

Anyway, that's enough from me for now :)

Hey,

I'm loving your youtube vids :) I'd never have the guts to do something like that haha I'm way too self conscious! Anyways, it seems like WeightWatchers is working out for you!

My goal weight is 70kg. It was 75kg, but then my BMI will be 26.. so I thought I should go that extra bit :)

I think you've got the will to lose weight :D Good luck!

PS. Make sure you keep posting vids :)
PPS. I can't believe you eloped! I'm sorta eloping.. Is going to Las Vegas classified as eloping? lol

Thanks emmer :) I started the vlogs because they seem like an honest way for me to report in - it's hard to lie when you've got a camera in your face! Lol. Plus I have video footage of my physical appearance now as I drop the weight. Lol and I think Vegas is classified as eloping if noone but you two are going! DH and I were going to go to Vegas and get married by elvis, but we couldn't really afford it at the time :(

Well, on Sunday, my weigh in day, I lost 1kg even :D So in 2 and a half weeks that I have been on the WW site using their online tools, I have lost 4kg. I can't believe that! It's kept me so honest and I love using their points tracker - beats the hell out of searching through a book and trying to find a pen to write it down... Last night I had quite an interesting dinner... it was just capsicum, zucchini, onion and tomato baked in the oven with some spray oil and mixed herbs, and then I tossed in some cooked couscous and some chickpeas and poured a mixture of dijon mustard, vinegar and lemon juice over the top. It was quite yummy, but it blew my friggen mind! It was only 3.5 points - and it just blew my mind that something so yummy, so filling and so satisfying could be that healthy for you... I always thought that I needed to cut down on my portion sizes - but this meal just showed me that I could have a MASSIVE plate of yumminess, but not be a fatty. I'm sure as I lose weight my portion sizes will naturally get smaller as I won't feel the need to eat so much.

I'm hoping this week I'll have a larger loss - I'm hoping around 1.5kg so that I can finally get out of the 120s. But I'd be happy with a kilo I suppose. I guess it's better to plan for more and if I only get halfway or whatever, it's still better than if I didn't plan at all or planned for nothing.

I got my uni timetable today! Yay! I start uni next Monday and I'm starting to get super nervous, plus stressed already. I've got a tonne of work to do for work, plus I have to catch up on my other uni subjects so that I can prep for exams at the end of semester... I'm hoping to get my work work done this week, and then I suppose over the course of the 12 weeks of uni I will need to finish my other uni work, plus prep for exams... I'm sure I'll find time though - the lectures and tutorials give me an extra 5 hours a week to study for exams/do assignments etc. At my other uni, I was spending 8 hours or so just on doing the basic course work, and then I would have to spend an extra 8 hours a week studying for exams and doing assignments... this way is going to be soooooooo much easier!

I've gone completely off the rails in the last few weeks! I've had pizza (twice), went to a 2 year olds birthday party, and just plain gave up. So in the last 3 weeks, I've had gains, losses and gains again - and in total I have gained 600g, and am now plonked on 122kg. That's ok! I have found my motivation! I kept thinking - 'Why did I start this in the first place???' and then I remembered it was because I was ashamed to show anyone my wedding photos. But now I'm going to show the world and post the picture that I had my 'OMG, I need to lose weight' moment to:

Image

I also wrote myself some goals for the month of August:

1. Begin a sleeping routine. Go to bed at 11pm, and wake at 7am – every day
2. Take the dog for a walk for 15 minutes 6 days a week
3. Get below 120kgs (lose 2.5kg)
4. Drink at least 1L of water every day

While these are just small goals, I feel like I can achieve them this month. Last night I went to bed at 1am, but woke up at 8am this morning anyway. Hopefully now I'll be tired enough to go to bed at 11pm tonight :) I'm 2.1kg away from getting below 120kg, which makes me excited! I'm feeling more prepared with my goals, because even though it doesn't say 'stick to my points every single day' - my goals are still baby steps for a healthier, slimmer me.

I've also given myself until Christmas 2010 to get to my final goal weight (which is either 70 or 65, I'm still not sure. Was going to assess that when I get much closer). That's about 70 weeks from now, hopefully plenty of time to lose between 52 and 57kg. I would really like to be below 100kg for Christmas this year, and 95kg by my 21st. I don't know if I'll get there, but at least if I plan for it, and only get halfway there - I'd be further than if I hadn't planned at all.

You look absolutely gorgeous in that photo, YellowRoses! And you look like such a happy couple. I love your dress, BTW.

Good on you for rediscovering your mojo! Your list of goals this week sounds like a really good one. I might steal your idea about the sleeping routine. My sleeping hours are all over the place ordinarily. And I find the best way to avoid late night snacking is to be asleep at the time! :lol:

Aww shucks you guys :oops: EWQ - unfortunately the dress got ruined on the day - someone stepped on the lace on the bottom and the whole bottom ripped off :(

All I can see in that photo is my double chin, flabby arms, and giant stomach :(
