Rocca wrote:Love what you said about the teenagers Kim, so true! What a waterfall of stories you have! (Many years ago a friend once said something about having a "waterfall of lettuce" to describe having a whole heap of lettuce... I love to use that now when talking about a lot of something!)

But it's such a shame that people would comment or laugh at an overweight person doing exercise. I feel like I want to high five someone when I see them exercising...

Rocca wrote:Thought I should set some mini goals, just to get them out there.
The first milestone I want to hit is 79.9kgs. I want to see this by or at my week 6 weigh-in (3 weeks away).
The next one after that is a BMI of 29.9. That will come a few weeks later.
I'm not so worried about getting to these within a certain time but they are what I'm working towards and will be my next big woohoos.
Rocca wrote:Is it better to eat before or after exercise? And if it's OK to eat before (which would suit my above predicament just fine), I'd be aiming for some kind of snack, so what's best to go for to get the best out of my work out? I don't want to just burn off the calories I just ate, but I want to have enough energy to give it everything I've got.
Also having a snack just before 5 would mean I probably have to shift my afternoon snack back to this time. Should I just push my morning snack and lunch out as well so that there's not a huge gap between lunch and afternoon snack?

Rocca wrote:Having said all that, I'm not looking forward to tomorrow's weigh-in. I've done a couple of sneaky checks during the week and kept coming in at my current weight, until this morning where I was more! I think this is due to Sunday night where I went out to celebrate something with my partner and I decided it was OK to have a "guilt free" meal. I had a chicken wrap and some popcorn at the movies, with a cocktail and a couple of glasses of sparkling wine. So I wouldn't say it was over the top, but still well beyond my calorie limit.
Rocca wrote:I'm going to work hard to offset that today in the hope that I can have even a tiny loss tomorrow morning, but definitely won't be proving your theory wrong Kim!
Blitz wrote:One of the things that I kept in my head during my weight loss was the idea that there were no days off in weight loss. We didn't have days off putting it on, so why do we think we deserve one now? Every day that we don't give it our best effort means that our weight loss journey is a day longer.
Blitz wrote:The chicken wrap was fine. However the popcorn (specially movie popcorn) and the drinks (there are so many hidden calories in alcohol) weren't the brightest idea. Whatever the fallout...what is important is that we learn from the experience. If we don't then it is wasted and we are doomed to repeat the mistakes until we do.
