2 topics relating to fat (1) jumped on the scale & body fat % is 28. i have 8% body fat to lose to get down to a healthy 20% (2) at the chemist today i saw what 1kg of fat looks like :shock: i never realised how big it is - it's a lot!!! from now on i won't be disappointed with a few grams lost cos it all adds up! when i lean over my stomach hangs out and i grabbed it & its comparable 2 the 1kg fat i saw today @ chemist - that's really motivated me to keep going cos with a little bit of work i'll have a flat stomach 1-2kgs loss from there & it'll be flat - how cool! can't wait!!

Hey,
Our gym used to have one of those fat things that was the equivalent of 2.5kg and man it was scary :shock: Its really helped me though when I'm feeling not so on top of things to remember that I've lost a few of those by now! Actually I wonder if you could buy them anywhere...lol just have a huge lump of 'fat' sitting in the fridge would be enough to curb additional snacking :p Good to hear its all going well for you :) I look forward to hearing that you've got past the 70kilo line! Its tough but I know we can do it :)
Love, Jane
Jane :)

I would definitely keep one in my fridge, pantry & bench top lol - great visual aid not to over indulge on naughty food lol. i hope 2 break the 70kg mark too - i've been sitting on 70 4 way 2 long now it's time to see 69 lol.

i didn't over indulge with dinner last night, we had moroccan lamb & side serve of steamed vegetables. i think i must be building some muscle on my legs & around my abs cos a pair of work pants i haven't worn in a while are loose on me, i didn't jump on the scale 2 see if i've lost any weight nor taken measurements - i must do that 2 see if i've shrunk :?

Thats fantastic!! Its really important to have other indicators of success besides the scale, and I'm sure you would have lost some cm by now :D That dinner sounds yum...

thanks :) i'll be happy with any loss weekly
that's why i share with the bf. i have enough 2 satisfy me & he can eat the rest lol. i've found i don't need 2 eat whole chocolate/muffin/cheese cake 2 get satisfaction. a few bites work great. i let the treats melt in my mouth & take small bites 2 get full taste & flavour i also don't feel like i'm missing out.

That sound like the philosophy of the book 'french women don't get fat' have you read it? When I remember to use their tricks of cutting everything in half before you start, and only eating enough to savor the taste it works really well and you do actually feel satisfied :)

Nice work Strawberry! And I think you've got the right idea of sharing treats - it really does only take a bite or two sometimes to be satisfied!

Finished detox but staying on track - and it's paying off!!

I, too, can relate to just having a mouthful or so for satisfaction. Hubby can't understand how I can open a pkt. of crisps for junior and only have 4-6 crisps myself without polishing off half a pkt.
