Morning girls and guys so disappointed this morning no porn to get rid of perhaps they are getting the message :wink: do you think its actual people that do it or just some computer things that latches onto the site.
Anyway good day yesterday well sort of, as always I took everything to work which I think is the way to go, Andy had the day off and cooked Roast Pork Yorkshire Pudding Roast veges he did do sprouts and baby carrots too and it was delicious but I am sure I ate too much but still not as much as I would have ate pre lifestyle change but I felt bloated and I was desperate to have coffee and biscuits later on in the evening and I was walking around pondering and pondering and then I thought of the pain I go through to complete that 40 mins on the treadmill and I thought no way I am off to bed with Harry Potter I am suffering this morning my stomach is bloated with all the food I have eaten I feel so uncomfortable, so lesson learnt from me "Don't PIg Out"
Hope you all have a great day

Hey TGIF "Thank goodness its Friday" hey two days off but I don't know about you but the weekends are my biggest challenge, Andy works all day Saturday and I have time on my hands after raising three kids and and a lazy first husband its hard to adjust to a sedate life on a Saturday, but I work hard so I do need to unwind those days too, I have a few projects on the go with some photos so that will keep me busy plus I intend to walk on the treadmill in the Morning and Evening on Saturday and Sunday Andy thinks I am pushing myself too hard, yes I am exhausted when I have finished my walk but I recover quickly by the time I have sat and drank a bottle of water I am fine but I do go to bed a lot more tired, but I am sure in the long run its all going to be worth it. One of my friends is leaving work today so we are having lunch at "Cafe Primo" I am not sure if they are Australia wide or just Adelaide, I a, contemplating eating my lunch before I go so I don't get tempted really can't make up my mind I know they do things like foccacia so may check out the menu on line before I go and make a decision so I don't get swayed by the photos of the lovely food when I get there.
Last night was another night where the choccy biscuits were so tempting I even picked them up and looked at them :wink:
but did not succumb but Kate the freddo works I look forward to it in the afternoon, a nice black coffee and a freddo picks me up no end
Have a great day girls

enjoy your weekend pam you deserve it after raising kids and working hard at your job. if you feel comfortable doing the level of exercise you are doing pam then keep it up and gradually increase it. it sounds like you are doing enough as it is being tired at bedtime and stuff. its swee that andy is concerned :) have a nice day i have no idea what cafe primo is but foccacias are my best friend ;)

Hope you are feeling better Pam...Sounded like a good feed though :) I wonder if in the future I will look back, wondering how I ate the way I did.

I hope you and yours have a very good weekend Pam...Later

Hope your lunch was lovely Pam and that you have a great weekend.

You're doing so well with your exercise, keep up the great work. Listen to your body, you will know if you are doing too much. Our men just worry about us, my hubby is the same. It's nice though. :D

I love when your talking about picking the biscuits up and looking at them! I do the same sort of thing, always have to look and smell things, but not eat them! Im also near obsessed with knowing what everyone else is eating for lunch! :D

Pam it sounds like your doing really well and are on the right path. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and feel refreshed when monday rolls around.

Morning everyone I have had a flat few days since the weekend, not felt myself at all, I have carried on the exercise and the careful eating but just in myself did not feel right, my weight stayed the same but I am feeling thinner and even getting comments from people I only see now and again, which gave me a huge boost. I am still feeling a bit iffy but can't say I am ill maybe a bit of depression maybe but I will bounce back, I feel proud of myself that I have stayed motivated with the exercise, because it is so easy to give in and fall by the wayside when you are feeling a tad off, I am going to try a few new things next week to help the scales budge like cutting a few more fats out of my daily intake and see how I go, I know there are a few PM's I have not answered, I am really sorry and I will try and and read through your progress pages this weekend and catch up with what you have all been doing, I find all you such an inspiration.
Have a great day

That's the way Pam...Hang in there. Sorry to hear you’re doing it tough. It truly is an accomplishment to keep the routine up when you’re feeling a little off...Indeed well done for that. I hope your new plan will help will bring some success & a little cheer your way.
I’ll be participating in the Brisbane Fun Run tomorrow…I plan on only making it a casual affair. Things have suddenly taken a big turn in the household with my wifes Nanna suddenly falling ill & possibly going to pass away. My wife is taking hard as her Nan was a very active person up until a week ago & has had a close relationship with her. Seeing the way she is dealing with it and doing the things that have to be done is very inspiring…Sometimes I think you ladies are tougher than us men…excuse the stereo typing, many of you ladies indeed are.
Hang in there Pam…things will pick up
:wink:

Well done Pam for keeping up the exercise and being careful with eating. It is the easiest thing to give in at times when you are not feeling all there then I think that can go a long way to making it a habit.

Keep up the effort and I hope you are feeling better soon.

We all feel a little under the weather from time to time. Changing your entire lifestyle confuses our body's way of thinking! It is completely normal... But good on you for continuing to exercise while feeling a little sad. That is a huge accomplishment! I wish we all shared your strength.

Yes yes yes the scales have moved and I have now lost 4.5 kilos and I am so pleased, I feel as if its starting to move and I actually feel better in myself physically I know on the big scale of things and the amount I have to lose 4.5 kilos is not a lot but I was at work yesterday and I thought "I feel good today"I increased my treadmill walking to 45 minutes last night, must to a grumpy face from Andy he says again I am doing too much but I don't think so I know my own limitations, but I do know that I really do not want to miss a day because I may slip into old habits, and while I am pounding away I am thinking omg am I going to have to do this forever :lol: I am not going to do 15 minutes treadmill in the morning before work except for Mondays of course when I start at the crack of dawn and then 45 minutes in the evening which will give me 1 hours exercise a day and as I don't have a very active job, I think I need to keep that up, any thoughts would be appreciated.
I was talking to my friend from another store we don't meet often and she is overweight and I was sharing my progress with her and she said her back was so bad because of her weight and she was going to start again, so I encouraged her to use her treadmill and lose the diet word and change her lifestyle, because that is all I am trying to do and hopefully I think it is working for me, and she said well If I don't lose it I will do the "gastric banding" (is that what its called"I hope she doesn't, I hope she trys she is such a great friend and lovely lady I want her to feel the satisfaction I am feeling of losing it through exercise and careful eating.
Have not posted for a while, I find after working all day and then exercising in the evening, by the time I have had my shower and eaten I am ready for Harry Potter and bed.
Have a lovely day everyone

hey pam congrats on your loss thus far. 4.5kg is a hell of a lot in the grand scheme of things i reckon. you should be really proud of yourself.

i think with your time restraints and because you are only just getting into the nitty gritty of weightloss you should continue with the treadmill for a bit. even an extra 5 minutes a day or a faster pace can make a big difference. are you getting bored with the treadie? do you have an work out dvds at home that you could pop on in the evening a couple of times a week so you are mixing up your routine?

you are doing well and to inspire your friend and give her advice i think it takes a very special person to be able to make a difference to someones life like that. :)

have a nice week mate
