Major Milestone....saying NO!

Postby GoingToBeAHottie » Wed Nov 12, 2008 2:06 pm

I'm new to this so didn't really know where to post this but I just had to share this with someone!!

We had a big spread for morning tea at work today and for the first time ever I said NO to all the yummy stuff (cake, chips, party pies and sausage rolls etc.) and all I had was a couple of sakatas and vegie sticks (with no dip may I add!).

I know this is just a really small step but even though I have lost weight in the past I don't think I have EVER said no to morning teas at work before!
Hopefully this time will be different!

Andrea :)

Nice work Andrea, its definitely a fantastic start! You can walk away from that situation feeling great about yourself.

In my department we order a nice indulgent bday cake to celebrate the teams bdays for the month gone, and I've been sitting back rejecting it each time and it felt really great! I did it the first time and then after every other time it got easier.

Go back to your desk and rip out a nice juicy pear and have that and then a cup of tea - fill up on some good stuff :)

All the best!

Ok so my Sydney trip is over and I've reached 64.2kgs - my next weigh in is in 2 weeks time so that whatever damage I did in Sydney will be done and dusted! I would love to lose 4.2kgs by Xmas time and I guess thats where my new goal begins :)

Thanks Lexi :)

I'm going to England, France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands and Greek Islands! It's still over 8 months away tho so still got a bit of a wait! I wanna lose a majority of the weight i need to lose by then so at least it's something to work towards!!

Congratulations for saying No. Way to go Andrea! It's all those little extras along the way that add up. You are going to be a hottie in time for your holiday. Whoa. Imagine the holiday snaps.

Hey, good on you. That is by no means a small step, I think it is a big one. You had temptation right in your face and you turned your back and made yourself proud. Well done. Keep up the good work. :)
