Jules new progress reports

Postby hushpuppy » Wed Aug 22, 2007 9:40 pm

Hi yall i thought due to the move i would start a new progress page and also introduce myself to all the newbies (and there are lots of you :D )
MY story
I am a mum of 2 kids a girl mikayla who is 11 and boy graeme who is 4 in october .
Up until my late teens i was always a rake and could fit comfortably into size 8 jeans (and still have a pair for the memories although i doubt my big toe could even fit into them )Had a child at 21 and was a sze 12/14 < add the relatioship disaster from hell and the body goes up to size 16 /18
after a 4 year celibracy I met a man i thought would be with forever got engaged had a baby (graeme) and suseqeuntly was a another disastor with domestic violence emotional beatings and leaving him for good .
I have sworn off men lol they dodnt fit in well with me . Now its Just me and the kids and my size 20 107kg body .
i joined here i think in 2004/05 and sice then have lost and put on the same ten kgs over and over again never getting below 92kgs
Anyway i have now moved into a pace of our own and have my own set of rules and routines and loving it .
After 2 and a half months of living with a bar size fridge and no washing machine (thanks mum for the laundry service ) i am getting a full size brand new frindge and washing machine delivered tomorrow (yippee)
This now mean i can freeze stir frys and points frees soups and stop having chicken nuggets and steak sandwiches .
Am going to woolies tomorrow (after uni and getting fruit and salad as i can now fit them in the fridge lol . No more excuses this time its me for me . I still have the dress i was going to fit into last xmas in the wardrobe so i am aiming for that which is about 15kg to lose before xmas or close to it
Decided against Jenny craig as it lokks like cheating not making your own meals and i dont have a mic lol so i am think back to WW but with the at home pack so its will be a little more flexible with the added bonus of having a consultent to ring email
wish me luck guys

Hey Jules, its nice to meet you! :D
You've sure had the run around from males, but you had the courage to do what a lot of women dont and thats walk away, i admire you for that! Sounds to me like your ready to do it! Im on WW at home too, so if you go with that program and need any help, sing out!! :D
Highest Weight - 93kgs

I liked your comment about not knowing where he is and that he doesnt see the kids and you dont care. honestly, i think you are doing a fab job on your own and they dont need someone in their life who had the urge to abuse their mother. maybe one day someone will come along who will treat you the way you deserve to be treated :) just dont let them near your fridge! lol. or it will be filled with things that men put in there like beer and home brew and yucky biscuits lol.

thanks for the car congrats :) i am over the moon :)

Hi Jules,
I know what you mean about the bar fridge. I spent 3 years cooking for the 2 of us out of one - the kitchen in the old flat had been designed so a full size fridge would not fit - by all of 1cm :evil:

Good on you for coming out of that relationship. So much the better for you and the kids. No-body deserves to live in that life, no matter what.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hi Jules,

Thank you for sharing a very private and intimate part of your life with us.

You are very lucky and fortunate to have gotten yourself out of the DV relationship. You did the very best for YOU and your children.

Although you've lost and gained the 10kgs you will eventually get to your desired healthy weight. You are getting back on the preverbal horse. You will get there.

Now that you have your own place you can set a safe food environment, create a fat-free buffer zone. Having a bigger fridge will enable you to stock lots of fresh fruit and veg.

All the best. Jen.

Hi guys hope u are all doing fine . It has been another wirlwind here in the hushie household lol . Not only did i think i had gladular fever (thank golly i didnt ) but my foot injury has been playing up . My left foot was run over by a 4 wheel drive a couple of years ago and its bugging me again . I have an appt next week to check it out .
Have been on antibiotics and nearly done the course . Food wise it has been up and down with a salad most lunch days that i am home and while at uni i have been having a vegetarian wrap .

My daughter has been away for the past 7 days as it is school holidays here and i have been missing her like crazy .Esp at night after grom (graeme) is asleep thats where the tim tams have been creeping in although on the flip side i can now it two and be satisfies instead of eating the whole packet.

I have also lost a kilo in the last three weeks so i must be doing something right . Cant do much exercise till the foot gets looked at but i have been using the hand (water)weights

This months task is to
1 replace tim tams with healthy biccies
2 up the water intake have been a little slack there
3 try to reduce stress about upcoming essays / exams with warm bubble baths

If i can do atleats the 1st to then i will be stoked
Cheers Jules
