TipsyToes' Diary

Postby TipsyToes » Mon Feb 03, 2014 10:06 pm

I have previously used an online forum diary to track my weightloss and, to be honest, it has been one of the most effective ways to keep myself motivated! I have only put on 2kgs since the last time I was exercising and dieting a year ago, and have gone from being 70kgs to 55kgs over the last few years.

Weight has always been one of those things I have struggled with, but I get closer and closer every time! I have a new gym membership (I kinda stopped going to my last gym thanks to a guy I gave my number to… It's a long and creepy story…), I have a gym and diet buddy to keep me accountable, and I now have this to track everything I do!

Here goes…
Height: 160cm (with a small body frame)

Bust: 91cm
Waist: 77cm
Hips: 100cm
Thigh: L - 61.5cm & R - 61cm
Calf: L - 39cm & R - 39cm

CW: 55kgs
GW: 49kgs

BMR/RMR: 1750kcal
Daily Diet: 1100 - 1200kcal

Day two... I tried going to the gym in the morning. Waking up at 4am is so hard to do... Haha I think I may have to stick to going in the evening, and simply going in the morning if I have plans in the evening. I have also realized just how little arm strength I have. I definitely need to work on that!

3x Instant Coffee (4g Protein) - 100kcal
Berry Museli Bar (2.1g) - 110kcal

Thanks! I've always found it interesting to take note of what others do and see what is and isn't working!


I was feeling really sick by this afternoon so couldn't bring myself to work out as hard as I normally do... (I'm thinking it may have been from the skim mocha making me feel nauseous all day... :( But they're so good! And I only get one or two every couple of months) I think it might actually be easier going to gym in the morning before work, despite the horrible 4am wake up! I slept like a log last night, and I'm attributing it to this early wake up! I passed out halfway through getting changed into my PJs!

However, having my mother staying with me has made dieting really hard. She keeps feeding me chocolates and making me take seconds and thirds of every meal. But I enjoy having her around so that's all that matters. She lives overseas so I'm trying my best to enjoy having her around for the short time she's here.

Ah well, here goes:

Tuesday - 4/2/14

1x Instant Coffee (1g Protein) - 35kcal

Banana (1g) - 100kcal
Kiwi Fruit - 50kcal
Tin Corn Kernels (2.1g) - 55kcal
4x Chocolate Eggs - 300kcal

Protein: 35.1/33g
Food Total: 1375/1750kcal = 375kcal

Exercise Total: Cardio = 150kcal

150 + 710 + 1465 = 1990/47,400kcal = 4.2% of goal

Thank you! :)


So today I got up again at 4am... It is definitely easier to work out in the morning! The actual getting out of bed is about 20x harder... But it's working really well, and there are fewer people to watch me struggle with next to no weight on any of the machines haha! One of the guys from work also goes to this gym in the morning, and it's inspiring watching him lift weight equivalent to my own body weight!

I also couldn't quite face using the pec fly this morning, my muscles are still agony from Monday. I'm actually pretty shocked by how quickly I have lost all muscle strength since the last time I was attending gym regularly.

Well today was a bit of a fail... We had our work breakfast meeting today. I didn't eat the bacon or sausages... But it was still pretty big for a breakfast! And I did give in and had a mini Magnum icecream... That one is completely on me! But at least I am still in deficit. Hoping to get back on track tomorrow! :|

Gym again this morning! Was good, but left me ready to go back to bed again at 10am... The guys at work are telling me going in the morning gets easier. At this point I'm feeling a little unconvinced!

It seems losing a pound of fat does make a big impact when you're short! I measured myself again this morning. I think it would be good to do it weekly. The calculations Im using to monitor my diet tell me how many kgs of FAT I should be losing, not necessarily indicating the weight I would read on the scales.

Visual clues and measurements seem to be a better indicator when you're finally in the healthy bmi range than pulling a number from the scales. I am hoping to work on developing muscle, so this works a lot better for me. The scales screwed me up a bit last time and I got stuck on 53kgs, despite me seeing constant changes in measurements and muscle. Despite me being logical about it, and telling myself I was losing fat and gaining muscle, seeing a number sit at 53kgs for a month was pretty demoralising.

I want to measure my butt as well.. But I always struggled accurately measuring it haha, so I'm not sure I want to include it, just for simplicities sake.

Sunday - 09/02/14

Bust: 91cm (0cm :P )
Waist: 73.5cm (3.5cm lost :D )
Hips: 99.5cm (0.5cm lost)
Thigh: L - 61cm & R - 61cm (0.5cm lost)
Calf: L - 38cm & R - 38cm (1cm lost)


Only 3.5cm away from fitting my waist back into my (really tight) size AU 8 dress! I can fit into most of my size 8 clothing still, but my favourite dress... well... much to my embarrassment... Haha after I gained 2 kgs back after I dropped from 57 to 53kgs, well it seems 55kgs doesn't fit into this gorgeous dress! :oops:

Well done - for me clothes are always the best indicator.....as we lose weight there does come a time when the figures stop going down due to toning up and if you only looking at the scales you aren't taking into consideration that you are actually looking fabby and toned and healthy!
Good luck.

You're absolutely right! :) Hoping not to lose motivation this time, so I'm trying to focus on toning and building muscle once I have lost the fat.

I spend my entire life on and off diets. This is probably why Im pretty good at them now, but it isn't good for the metabolism. I need to work on a maintenance plan... Thing is, I've never quite been at my goal, or I hit my goal and realise my goal is actually a lot further from where I thought it would be, so I have to change it again! Gahh!! If anyone has any tips I would love to hear them!

Having a lazy day at home today... Here's hoping I don't get bored and convince myself I NEED one of those mini magnums in the freezer... Or the left over pasta... Or the ton of chocolate everywhere in the house now my mother's home... Or the entire pack of rice crackers... Or any of the delicious cheese in the fridge! When I'm living here with just my brother, none of these things can be found in the house!

Sunday - 09/02/14

Breakfast:
Slice toast + Smoked Salmon (2g) - 100kcal
3x Instant Coffee (4g) - 100kcal

Lunch:
Salad Sandwich (7.8g) - 220kcal

Smoked Salmon Pizza: (10g) - 350kcal

Food Total: 1000/1750kcal = 750kcal


750 + 4,600 = 5,350/47,400kcal = 11.3% of goal

Hahaha It's because my mother is here... I'm cheap and buy tins of tuna when they are on special! Smoked Salmon is a pricey delicacy in our household so I'm making the most of it! :D
