What goes around, comes around..

Well I'm back and it's not good news obviously..

Got back from Japan late last month and was truely shocked to see that I had ballooned to 101 Kgs :shock: .. I just couldn't believe it or more to the point couldn't believe how much I had let myself down.. two years ago if you'd told me I would be anywhere near the century mark again I'd have laughed, I never EVER thought I had it beat but at least thought I had learned a few things.. well perhaps I had but obviously not enough..

And so I'm back.. to be honest I wanted to log on a couple fo weeks ago but I honestly didn't want to humiliate myself or disappoint myself by falling in a heap so I figured it best to make a start and in the meantime I've managed to drop a few kilos - this morning weighing in at 97.2 Kgs..

Where did it all go wrong? Well I guess it was two stages in hindsight.. I got down to the late 70's a couple of years back by sheer will power and by exercising a lot but I'm a self confessed lazy sod so the really hard exercise went out of the window and I started to pile back on the weight quickly moving to circa 90 Kgs by Xmas 2008.. to be honest I was pretty comfortable at this weight and I stayed hovering in a 7/8 Kg range both under and over 90 Kgs for about 15 months.. & then it went to hell in a hand cart over maybe the last 3/4 months when I zoomed back to the higher 90's before going over the top.. I kept telling myself I could control it but I think it actually took the shock of seeing me back in three figures to make me do something about it..

& basically I have.. I'm a couple of weeks back into cutting right back again, I'm taking the dog out again a couple of times a day and right off the junk food, snacks and choccie, hell even today at work I knocked back Birthday cake so something is clicking back :mrgreen:

I don't know where this is all heading.. I don't yet feel confident enough to give myself targets I just know I need to do something about it.. But one thing is for sure I need to be back on here to make myself accountable..

Thats it for now, hope everyone out there is doing well and I'll try to catch up with a few of you soon..

Will try to get in here a couple of times a week.. so far so good and a couple more 100 grams off over the weekend.. just cutting back on the crap foods again at present and walking the dog for over an hour each night.. nothing else too strenuous at the moment.. I'm off o/s for ten days at the end of the month and will no doubt have a few beers while I am away so my mind set is to just get through these next few weeks losing steadily and not put too much of anything on while away, then start a ten week challenge to myself in from Oct 4th - that's the plan anyway.. Don't want to talk numbers until then put I'm happy with the progress I have made with nearly three weeks down so far..

Good start JP, you did it before so you can do it again right? And it sounds like you already know what works for you and how to go about it, so now it's just a matter of doing it and you'll be fit again in no time. Keep it up!

Hi Sanov & Starr, thanks for stopping past and offering encouragement.. disappointing to have to get back on the saddle so to speak and not easy to do at all but once I get into a routine and get past say the first month I start to gain a bit of confidence.. the first time I finished because basically l had reached a level which l was happy with (and then slowly sank back to oblivion) whereas the second time I went on holiday which is the exact nitemare situation facing me in a couple of weeks.. therefore I am having to be on my guard right up through this period and especially when l get back I have to feel l am hitting the deck running.. I am formulating some targets before Xmas but I really need to get into early next month before openly challenging myself.. feeling good though thus far and quietly confident..

Subway is heaveny... chicken fillet with old english cheese and lettuce tomato capsicum sweet onion sauce on italian herbs and cheese read OMG ...*drools*...

1kg loss in a week is great work.

I'm a little concerned about how things are going to go when I go on holiday too. Here I know what I'm doing, what I need to do to make it happen... overseas it's all different, who knows what you'll be doing one day or the next or when/where you can eat... I mean that's the point of and the appealing thing about a holiday... but yeah, not ideal for losing weight. I have a couple of months to prepare myself mentally for it. Let me know any gems of wisdom you encounter regarding it! How long are you going for and when do you leave?

Nice! Chiang Mai is beautiful. If you haven't been before you definitely shouldn't miss the 'Flight of the Gibbon' flying fox or Pantara Elephant Farm (Or Baanchang Elephant Park - it's basically the same but cheaper). Both were very high on my list of Thailand trip highlights.

Been to Chiang Mai quite a few times now and have been to Flight of the Gibbons, my mate helps run it as he does the Elephant Nature Park : http://www.elephantnaturepark.org/
I will ask him about the park you mention as quite a few of the parks are still quite cruel to their elephants with their training methods.. been to this one a couple of times but not the one you mention..
