Thanks heaps for that :D

Nothing much to add here, I have been keeping a weightloss journal of my own up until now...I record almost everything in there but one thing I dont do is get strict with myself, I sort of just write what has happened and what I 'hope' to do in the future and my goals but I have realised that if I am to get to my goal I really need t set little mini challenges and not just rely on eating varly healthy and exercising to do it ALL.

I am not massive in to the idea of deprivation, I think it causes more harm then good but maybe if I just experiment with things maybe I can put my finger on why it is sooooo hard to lose these last 10Kg....so I will set myself challenges. Each week is a new challenge and I have to carry the previous weeks challenge over to the next week. I have to do it for 6 weeks.

Week 1 (18th-24th Oct) - No coffee, soft drink, cordial, or juice (only herbal tea and water)
Week 2 (25th-31st Oct) - The above and must drink at least 2L of water.
Week 3 (1st-7th Nov) - The above and no snacking except (fruit/veg/nuts/light dips and cheese along with empower wraps and biscuits)
Week 4 (8th-14th Nov) - The above and no dessert
Week 5 (15th-21st Nov) - The above and no or very little processed food and grains so only wholegrain/brown EVERYTHING, made from scratch
Week 6 (22nd-28th Nov) - The above and NO SUGAR (not even natural, so not fruit!)

This is going to be sooooo hard...but I am starting slow...I think this will kick start my metabolism...and everything about is all good for me.

So I havn't been in a good place today...but if I am honest I havn't been in a good place for some time...I have lost my faith/respect in this process and I think that is reflected in my bodies cracking the poos and not dropping the weight eventhough I am eating well and exercising. So its time to change thing up.

Because I have only had two weeks or little or no lose eventhough I have been doing the right thing...I am also due for AF so it could just be a fluke that I have had no results...maybe putting on muscle...anyway because of this I am willing to give my body another 2 weeks to get its bum in to gear...I am going to provide it with the tools it needs (eating well and exercising) if it cant do a good enough job I am sacking it :lol:

So on top of my other challenge I have going I am going to focus a lot on what I am actually doing to get to my goal...

Here are my goals

67.7 Kg - 20 Kg lost since starting to lose weight
65.5 Kg - Medically healthy weight and BMI
64.9 Kg - Would just love to be below 65 Kg
64.0 Kg - First personal goal
63.8 Kg - 20 Kg lost since starting WW
60.0 Kg - Ultimate goal

Here is my 6 week challenge

Week 1 (18th-24th Oct) - No coffee, soft drink, cordial, or juice (only herbal tea and water)
Week 2 (25th-31st Oct) - The above and must drink at least 2L of water.
Week 3 (1st-7th Nov) - The above and no snacking except (fruit/veg/nuts/light dips and cheese along with empower wraps and biscuits)
Week 4 (8th-14th Nov) - The above and no dessert
Week 5 (15th-21st Nov) - The above and no or very little processed food and grains so only wholegrain/brown EVERYTHING, made from scratch
Week 6 (22nd-28th Nov) - The above and NO SUGAR (not even natural, so not fruit!)

My program to help me reach my goals;

Week 1 - Eat to lose weight, exercise at least 3 times a week.
Week 2 - as above
(re evaluate after week 3s results, if 1.5 - 2.0 Kg have been lost continue as above until the weight of 65.5 Kg is lost or this is a need for re evaluation, re evaluation will be done any time there are 2 weeks of not so good results...next time though I will only give myself 1 week to pull it up and not two - if 1.5-2.0 Kg have not been lost by the end of week 2 proceed to the below)
Week 3 - From now on eat a balanced healthy meal but dont stress about eating purely for weight loss, this eating plan applies from now on! Exercise: Brisk five-minute warmup walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes X 3 times a week
Week 4 - Brisk five-minute warmup walk. Then alternate 90 seconds of jogging and two minutes of walking for a total of 20 minutes X 3 times a week
Week 5 - Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then do two repetitions of the following: Jog 200 metres (or 90 seconds),Walk 200 metres
(or 90 seconds),Jog 400 metres(or 3 minutes),Walk 400 metres(or three minutes) X 3 times a week

So things are going to change a little bit...after much soul searching I have decided that enough is enough...below are what my goals use to be;

67.7 Kg - 20 Kg lost since starting to lose weight
65.5 Kg - Medically healthy weight and BMI
64.9 Kg - Would just love to be below 65 Kg
64.0 Kg - First personal goal
63.8 Kg - 20 Kg lost since starting WW
60.0 Kg - Ultimate goal

and here is what my goals are now

67.7 Kg - 20 Kg lost since starting to lose weight
65.5 Kg - Medically healthy weight and BMI

I have decided that I am going to give up the fight when I am at my healthy weight...why not! That means I am healthy DER!!! I could apparently also be healthy at 60 Kg but I would also be border line unhealthy so whats the point of aiming for something that is border line unhealthy...I am trying to convince myself here! ANYWAY after I reach 65.5 Kg I am putting away the scales and my goals will not be weight but cms and reaching exercise goals during the week...I am pretty excited about this to be honest...cant wait to start!

Weighed in this morning at 69.1 Kg so I still have another 3.6 Kg to lose and I can tell this is going to take AGES!

Dont get too tied up with the numbers... people have been telling me that, so I guess I should share the wisdom too :lol:

also do you body measurement and mirror check... also a photo comparison does wonder... I dont feel like I have lost the weight, but last night I had a quick comparison between what I started off at, and what I am looking now, I did notice a difference... and that can be a major motivation boost :)

Good luck with it...

hey dust, I reckon your decision to go with your health and not (dare I say it...) vanity (not meaning to be harsh :P ) is FANTASTIC. Not only is it ok to settle for healthy, it's the best you can do, because we have to let our bodies be comfortable and know that they are being taken care of - trying to push ourselves down to even a slightly unnatural weight is stressful for our bodies and our minds.

Anyway, I just wanted to say good on you, and you must be so proud of how far you've come. It's inspiring to us all :)

Thanks for the support guys! It has meant big changes to my motivation and my weight!

I weighed in today at 67.3 Kg a far cry from the 69.2 Kg a couple of weeks ago. I avoided the dreaded C25K...maybe one day...maybe to help me get rid of those last 5 Kg to get to 60 Kg if I ever actually want to do that???

For now I am happy with what I am doing, I am being supper active, trying to get out of the gym as much as possible but I still go 3 days a week for my interval training, just to get in my cardio, then I do other things like intense bush walking, running around with my DD and dancing, active shopping, DTD :lol: its all exercise!

I am now 1.8 Kg away from my healthy goal and thinking I MIGHT get there at the end of December but lets see...once I hit there I am going to start my healthy active lifestyle which will mean doing the below during my week;

Pilates class
Swimming, laps and DDs swimming
Weights session
Interval session
Mild cardio (a walk)
Family fun day which can be bush walking. going to the park, going to the zoo...just getting out and being active.

I seriously cant weight...it will be so nice oto have things in my life that is helping me be health that will add to my family and my life and energy rather then taking away!

Better go to the gym now...I have a lake walk and a bush walk planned for this weekend with a well deserved rest day on Sunday, apart from shopping :roll:

Oh I also wanted to add. Something that really hit home for me that kotobird said was that by only aiming for my healthy weight I was letting go of the vanity goals (to para phrase her) that really made sense to me...if I were to focus on the scales passed my 65.5 Kg healthy weight it would be, if I am honest 60% out of vanity and 40% because I am goal orientated and competitive with myself and hate to fail.

The vanity side of it has no substance its all [email protected] at the end of the day I am nearly 30, still get pimples, have some really long and some broken nails, [email protected] hair if I wanted to put myself behind vanity maybe I should start with a facial :lol:

I can still have goals and be competitive with myself without having a pointless goal in mind I would lose motivation very quickly and get upset and angry rather then driven as I dont REALLY want the results.

How can I fail if I am doing what is best for me! I am just setting myself up for failure picking a goal that doesn't honestly interest me but is something I picked because I thought it was the right weight to be.

So there...I seriously cannot wait until I hit 65.5 Kg so that I can get this new me on the road!!!

66.5 today! So totally wrapped about that - I am 1 Kg from my goal!!!

Lets see if I can do it in 2 weeks????

But it is time to look to the future and plan the change in exercise and food...I am not sure what I am going to do about food yet, I think it will have to be something that happens slowly, that I keep my eye on...I have pretty much cut out and dont miss dairy and bread (minus wraps) or heavy red meats so that is a bonus. I already love salad and think I need to get a little more educated on using low fat/low carb condiments, sweeteners, and oils etc

Anyway...the plans are

Get a Pilates mat
Check the day and time of the classes
Get some Pilates appropriate clothing
Perform some hair removal
Get a swim suit for myself and DD
Get a beach towel for myself and DD

Goals that I am going to set...I basically have a different activity everyday so I am going to get goals for most if not all of them. Maybe like the below;

High intensity cardio, I am using a local national park to get the exercise, they have a sort of circuit, so I am going to record my beginning time and try and beat that as the weeks go by.

Pilates, I am going to a group class and it is easy to moderate, so I guess my goal will be getting to the point where I am doing all of the moves without modification or rest and maybe moving somewhere else once I am doing it with easy...although I dont really mind if this isn't a challendge I am just interesting in maintaining core strength.

Weights session, increasing reps and weight, gaining muscle mass.

Swimming, increasing the amount of laps I can to and ultimately beating any records set for myself

Interval triaining, eventually I want to work on being able to jog for 10 mins but I am not holding my breath...maybe once the fitness level increses this will be something I can look at.

Family fun active day, the only goal here is to enjoy my family and being active with them...but I would like to challendge myself to do something new and exciting ever week :)

So I think those goals are good, if anyone can help me with what a healthy fat and muscle % is that would be greatly appreciate, oh also healthy measurements for your body...

Looking forward to setting those goals when I jump in to it...Still 1 Kg to go !

Okay so my first goal is fat %...the reason I want to focus on this is because muscle is good for me...because it weighs more then fat right...bummer but that is a great thing...take this situation...person A and person B weigh the same however persons As fat % is 24 and person Bs fat % is 32...person A is a size smaller because although person A and B weigh the same, muscle weighs more then fat which means fat is going to take up more room and make a persons shape bigger...

That is really focusing more on looks and shape but there are other benfits to have a lower fat % and greater muscle %

MUSCLE BURNS FAT...so I will burn more fat just sitting around doing nothing if I gain more muscle and lose the fat...this really goes towards my wanting to keep this weight off goal, wanting to be healthy and fit for my next baby, and not wanting to actually do too much to maintain a healthy weight.

So taking all of that in to consideration I am aiming for a body fat % of 20...I will in put my figures on Monday when I start my first weeks of a 12 week program to maintain this healthy weight...

While I am not trying to lose weight anymore I do want to eat in a way that will encourage muscle gain...so this means increasing protein...min of 60 grams/meal and avoiding junk...
