Well after many 'attempts' lasting all of one or two days thanks largely due to the Calorie King software and also to the fatblaster ad of before and after pictures which is now taped in my cupboard I have lasted out an entire week and am 1kg lighter to show for it!
This is the first time I have lost weight through a conscience dieting effort since I managed to loose 10kg 3 years ago when I left school (only to put it all back on within 6 months through the disruption of moving to go to uni).
So woo bloody who and I am pretty damn pleased with myself! Not intending to let this effort go to waste
Here are some thoughts from my week:
feel like eating immediately after dinner. I found a perfect way to combat this is to have a cup of tea. I have it with two sugars and a dash of milk - not the best way to have tea but 200kj of tea is better than 2000kj of desert! If I still feel like eating after the tea, I brush my teeth, because toothpaste makes everything taste like crap
* I am going for 5500kj a day. I only managed to be under this one day of the week, but wasn't so far over on every other day. I record veges, fruit etc in calorie king to watch fibre etc. but never used to 'count' them when I did it on paper, otherwise I wouldnt eat them :p so I consider this ok
* I was aiming for exercise 3 times this week which didn't happen because I was meant to go today but got home unforseeably late and was tired because I had to work at 6am
* One day I had 7000kj. I have decided one day a week I will allow a 'splurge' day of under 7500kj - which is the 'safe' limit I set for myself to make sure that I don't actually gain weight on these days.
Sorry that was probably really boring but it is just so good to have some people to just get it all out too, because I am really excited but my boyfriend is sick of hearing me talk about my weight
