Emma's Weight Loss

Postby emmer138 » Sun Jan 01, 2012 11:58 pm

hi everyone!

so ive decided i'm going to be using this as my personal progress/weigh-in post.

i've just been looking through my old measurements and weigh-ins from when i last lost weight.. and wow.

these are my before (when i started losing weight in 2009) and current measurements

stomach before – 46 inches
stomach current - 48 inches
waist before – 36 inches
waist current - 41 inches
bust before – 42.5 inches
bust current - 44 inches
arm before – 14 inches
arm current - 14 inches

argh! i'm around 2kg heavier than my last start weight, and ive 2 inches bigger on the stomach, and 5 inches bigger on my waist???!!! gross!!! but on a lighter note, i'm really interested to see what my measurements will be like when i get down to the same weights. will they be similar or different?


oh! and ive also just found my measurements at week 15 where i'd lost 14.2kgs...

stomach – 41 inches
waist – 33 inches
bust – 40 inches
arms – 12.5 inches

huge difference that was! i'm glad i found all of this because its giving me motivation to do this and make it stick! i find the hardest part of weight loss is maintaining! who is with me?!

Hi Emma :)

thanks miss_viva, weight gain sure sucks!

today was my weigh-in day, and in my first week i lost 1.7kg :D which i'm veeeery happy with. i haven't been doing as much exercise as i'd like to just yet, mostly because i work as a supervisor for a cleaning company (night shift) so when i know that i have to fill in for someone and clean for 4-6 hours, i don't exercise and use the cleaning as my exercise. but when i went for my first a 30 min walk the other day and realised how unfit i am :( but i'll get there!

also, my hubby has just been dieting for the whole week as well, but exercising much more than me (he had the week off work) and he lost 5kg! i'm so proud of him :D

i also have a confession.. this week i weighed myself 5 out of 7 days which probably isn't really good, but i see it as a good thing because as soon as i went back to work, and after only 2 days of eating my dinners at 11.30pm/12.00am every night (my biggest meal), i went from 90.5kg to 91.7kg!!! ewww! so i changed it around, and made it so i eat my dinner for breakfast, then take a salad to work for lunch, then when i get home from work i have a bit of yoghurt, and 2 days later i was back down to 90.5kg.. so i'm going to keep doing that and see how it works for this next week :)

yay for me!

Hi ! Good luck this year, I look forward to reading along and see how you are going. Your measurments put you in my mind as a beautiful hourglass - lucky you! I know what you mean about switching the meals around because of your hours of work. Our house was always weird because my husband did afternoon shift so I was cooking his 'dinner' at 10am. It can be hard, but you need the right type of fuel to get you by at work.

Thanks for your reply babylove! switching the meals around definitely worked for me this week. i lost 3kg :shock: and i didn't exercise. i've also decided to change my weigh-in day to saturday, rather than sunday :) (in case i decide to have a couple of drinks one saturday night)

i switch my meals around through the week, then go back to normal on the weekend. i even had pork crackling last sunday night! yum! all in moderation though :)

oh and with my measurements, i wish i was an hourglass :( i'm more like an apple i think, my hips are kind high and i have a short torso. its hard to explain. i've taken some before photos so once i've lost maybe 10kg, i'll take more and put them up on the before and after photos.

i'm hoping for 1kg loss this week! wish me luck!

ps. so craving pan bread right now :(

thanks SugarsandSpice!

i didn't end up updating last week. had a reeeally rough week emotionally, has continued on a little but this week but i've been able to hold it together better. so last week i lost 500g, which i was actually happy about. i didn't eat badly because i was upset, but i ate more late at night. one day i didn't eat anything through the day because i was very upset, then when i got home after 11pm that night was when i pigged out on healthy stuff like watermelon and skinny cow icecream lol but at least i didn't turn to the bad food!

this week went better. i lost 1.3kg so that brings my total so far to 6.5kg in 4 weeks! yyyaaaaaayyy! which means i have only 1.5kg to go before i meet my first goal, which is 4 weeks away, so i'm a little ahead :D very excited! ohh, and i even went to a bbq at a friends house for australia day, AAAND drank alcohol (smirnoff and sugarfree creaming soda), and then had a bbq at my house last night (but made healthy potato salad, marinated chicken breast, pork tenderloins, tossed salad, etc) so overall it went really well! i'm just happy that i'm doing things that you would normally do, like go to a bbq, and be able to control myself and make healthy choices :)

oh and my hubby is doing great too. he weighed himself yesterday and he was down to 103.6kg, which means hes lost 13kg in 4 weeks! very proud :) even when we went to the bbq on australia day, his mate was sitting there staring at him saying 'dude.. put some weight back on! you dont look like steve anymore!', so i think he felt pretty good about that :)

i'd just like to add that lately ive been 'fantasising' about weight a bathing suit. i don't think i've worn one without clothes over the top of it since i was like.. 11 so 12 years lol so this is the one i've picked!

Image

i don't think i'll be confident enough to wear a 2 piece thanks to all my lovely stretch marks, but this one is so cute!

anyway, hope everyone is doing well :) xo

woohoo!

i just did my measurements for fun, not thinking i'd changed much.. and heres the results:

Bust
Start - 44 inches
Current - 42.5 inches

Waist
Start - 41 inches
Current - 37.5 inches

Stomach
Start - 48 inches
Current - 45.5 inches

so that means from those 3 areas, i've lost 7.5inches & 6.5kg in 4 weeks! woop woop!

i was also looking at my previous weigh ins from when i lost weight in 2009, and it seemed like i had a pattern of losing weight one week, and gaining the next, and i'm sooo glad i haven't gone back into that pattern again. i really hope i can just keep losing each week, even if its only a small amount :) i think i will stay on track alot better that way compared to last time. let me know your thoughts!

xx

I remember a friend also felt the same feelings that you had. He said that it is better to lose weight than to gain too much weight. He said that he will never forget that kind of feeling that you've reached your goal to lose much weight.

thanks guys! the togs are cute arent they :)

so i weighed in today, and i was hoping that i could meet my first goal of 84.2kg, which i wasn't planning on meeting for another 3 weeks..

but i did it! 84.1kg today! woohoo!

this time around losing weight has been so much easier. i don't have huge cravings, i don't feel like i need to feel full to be satisfied, and i dont have cravings to go to mcdonalds on the way home from work and pig out (thank god!). i've also only had mcdonalds once since i started this journey, but i made the healthy choice to get a salad (researched my decision on calorieking.com first to see how many calories their salads are :P)

anyway, i'm SOOO excited to go to brisbane in 3 weeks! i'm a little worried about what i'm going to eat, but i chose a hotel room with a kitchen so if i'm too scared to get takeout, i can make something there :)

hey thanks for your replies guys.

i will admit, i have migrated a little over to tumblr.com because it seems to be ultra quiet lately on weightloss.com.au, and theres loads of inspiration blogs to follow on tumblr :)

my last week was pretty bad. i did lose 900gms which i'm sooo happy about (and it brings my total to 9kgs lost in 6 weeks!!!), but emotionally i haven't been coping well with home or work. i am seeking help, but unfortunately these things can't be fixed overnight. i will be ok though! i'm just proud i'm still going in the right direction with my health :D

i'm really hoping to lose 1kg per week for the next couple of weeks. so close to my next goal, and i wasn't planning on meeting that until april 1st!

oh also, my hubby is still losing weight :D he's lost a whopping 17.5kgs in 6 weeks! i'm so proud of him, and so glad that hes going to be much healthier than ever before so he can be around longer!
