Yummymummys ramblings!!!

Postby yummymummy » Sat Nov 25, 2006 12:19 pm

Hello everyone I really love this forum and the support you can get here so I thought I would start my own online diary. I will begin with a little about me Im a wanna-be yummymummy with 3 kids who are 10 7 and nearly 4, my partner is a cook and he really likes to cook scrummy food and I really like to eat all his scrummy food hence my 20kg weight gain over the past few years!
Im a nurse and Im about to move on to a oncology ward after christmas and my holidays, I hated being an overweight nurse felt like a fruad giving health advice when I looked like I could do with some myself!! About 3 mths ago I joined sureslim and Im loving it its been the best thing I could have done for my health in a long time but I dont exercise regularly at all and I really need to get that into my routine, but with working 4 days a week I cant workout how to fit it in, my youngest is already at his babysitters house 2 days a week so the guilt of dumping him in a creche is too much, I dont see much of hubby so heading off to the gym at night doesnt seem right either and he goes to work by 6am mon-fri so early mornings are out -but- enough of excuses :!: I got to get exercising :!:
thanks for reading

Hi jody
thanks for sharing that with us :) i think mandie mentioned awhile ago that becoming a doctor she feels like a hypocrite giving advice when she was the weight she was. so i can understand where you are coming from.

im the cook in my house and i found that i have to start cooking foods that dont come from jars all the time! i need more healthy options.

you will find the time to exercise. even if you do it in your home. i have some exercise dvds and i find them a saviour if i cant go for a walk. i cant afford a gym either so i do what i can around here.

anyway i look forward to seeing your comments on the forum, keep going with sureslim its obviously working really well for you.

Thanks for sharing some of your life with us Jody.

That's the thing with exercise you need to fit it in where it works best for you. I exercise mainly during my lunch break at work although I am lucky enough to have an hour for lunch so I can go for a walk or to the gym. I also have some DVD's at home as well as weight equipment. Going to the gym after work just won't work for me.

Best of luck with your weight loss.

Thanks guys, Well the diet was blown out of the water last night when I went to my xmas do with the people from my ward -food wise I went OK but I drank a huge amount of wine which was very bad :oops: so I drinking heaps of water today to help flush the system and rehydrate myself but I had a blast so no point feeling guilty just gotta get straight back into it today!

sounds like you are doing the right thing with drinking the water jody :) sometimes these events come up and you can either sit there and not eat or drink or you can get in enjoy yourself. i always say that you dont need to eat to be social but when it comes to occasions like that as long as you are sensible you enjoy yourself more :)

I gotta admit the only reason I didnt pig out was because the food was rubbish! it tasted bland and everything was covered in slimey white sauce YUCK. It was a fun night because I was with about 35 work mates and it was nice to catch up but food and service was bad :cry: . Diet wise Im back on track I always seem to struggle on weekends but do really well during the week hence the huge slowing of my weightloss. Ive only lost 1kg in the past 3 weeks but it aint a gain so its all good.
I went shopping this morning and I grapped a size 12 pair of 3/4length jeans then I grabbed a 10 just to see and OMG the 10 fit I was a very happy girl, I didnt buy the tho because they were low hipsters and having my tummy on veiw isnt my thing since having bubs but hey it was the ego boast I needed to get back on that diet wagon!!!

Thanks for reading

Great goig Jody on fitting into the size 10s jeans . I hope to be there one day

The weekends are pretty bad for me sometimes to . I choose 1 day of the weekend where i can indulge slightyly(but not overboard)
That way i dont feel like i have deprived myself and helps me stay on track for the other 6 days

Jody I know what you mean about feeling like a hypocite . i'm an ANUM on a medical ward and I feel awkward about giving advice, especially to diabetics ,telling them to change there diet and exercise..

Sonds like you are doing a great job to be able to fit into size 10 jeans, i'd be happy to get into a 16 at this stage :lol: :lol:


Some of girls on my ward, go for a walk at lunchtimes ,but its hard when you only have 1/2 an hour, when I go to the gym I go directly from work or first thing in the morning and the same with my swim or a walk, but it is certainly hard for you with the kids. hope you work out a plan 8)

some hospitals have a gym, not ours its not that big, how about yours :)

Aww thanks guys, yeah Im pretty chuffed with myself;
unfortunatly theres no gym at the hosp where I work were a relatively sml private hosp so there aint much extras for us staff!! The girls who walk in their lunch break are very good I can only manage to sit veg out and eat and drink!! I was thinking about exercising before work on the days I dont have to get the kiddos to the babysitters before work(I dont have time on those days) by maybbe getting to work early and walking around the hospital grounds for 1/2 hour,
OMG Robbie Williams is tonight I feel like a teenager with a crush!! lucky my hubby is a easy going chap because Ive been gushing about him for days!! I got my hair cut & coloured today Its much darker and its in a bob type style :arrow: I think I may get my pic taken tonight before I go out and if I get brave I will post my pic(not sure if I have any before pics tho I avoid cameras like the plague!) Any way Guys thanks for reading
