Sarah's Weight Loss Diary!!!!

18/11/2010 - Thursday - 11.08am

Ok, so I've decided to really get serious about this! I'm sick of being a fat lump of lard! I really have no self esteem left. My full story is in introductions, so I won't repeat it here.

Anyway, started on Monday (15/11) at 83.5kg and a BMI of about 31 apparently.

I started doing shakes. They're (at the moment) Musashi (generally a body builder shake, but I'm using as a meal replacement as they have the least sugar). I have a shake for breakfast, shake for lunch and healthy meal (normally grilled meat with salad or something) for dinner. I've only today started really having snacks in between. So I'll start this diary from today :)


Breakfast: I had my shake... it's meant to be made with skim milk, but I have it of a morning with 99% fat free soy milk.
Snack: 2 x 100% natural vita-wheat crackers with 1/4 avocado on top.
Lunch: Shake with water this time.
Snack: Salad - lettuce, baby tomato, beetroot, capsicum, mushroom & low fat cottage cheese as a topping.
Dinner: some form of grilled meat probably with salad or healthy roast veges (from the Tony Ferguson website).

87.7kg - BMI (whatever it was last time).

ALL WEEKEND I didn't lose a thing. Although I had an 18th on Saturday night I still ate so healthily the whole stupid weekend, (minus having indian for lunch on Sunday) and nothing has come of it.

I'm about to give up. I'm on the censored brink of just saying "SCREW IT" and eating whatever the hell I want. I'm sick of this! I'm sick of starving myself for a measly censored 800 grams. I'd rather die! I would rather not live (I'd be thin if I was a skeleton) than deal with this stupid bullshit anymore.

As you can see I'm having a bad day. This week I've decided I'm doing nothing but shakes and 1/4 of a regular dinner serve. So far I've had my 2 shakes for the day. Don't know what dinner is yet. Maybe I'll just have another shake.

Congratulations Sarah, 800 Gm is pretty good for just a week, and is at the upper range for healthy weight loss.

Don't get too disheartened by the numbers though. Bathroom scales cannot be trusted for measuring changes in weight over days or even a few weeks. The measurements are rendered useless due to the natural variation of body mass that occurs on a daily basis.

Water retention, food bulk, muscle growth, etc., will have an impact. In fact, having an extra glass of water will HIDE a few hundred grammes of lost fat. And even if the scales show a loss over a weekend it is not certain it is actually a loss and not a gain.

Scales are more useful for checking averages and confirming trends over a longer period of time.

Put more trust in yourself - you can be more certain that your diet is putting your body into an energy deficit so that it "burns" fat, you can be certain that your regular exercise is developing and toning your muscles, and you can be certain that all this effort is making you feel better and and your clothes fit looser. These things are far more certain than just a few hundred grammes here or there.
