Ella's Maintenance Thread

Postby loveat116 » Fri Feb 22, 2008 5:05 pm

I made it :D

Yesterday's Weight: 53.6kg
Today's Weight: 53.9kg

Guess what my reward is for reaching goal????

A 24" iMac!
Woo!
It's gonna cost me $2,600, but im salary sacrificing it so I get $800 back!
Its high definition, so you can use it like a TV and watch DVD's and stuff!

Im a bit iffy about my weigh ins cause I used my parents digital scales, they are never generous so I take that as a good sign.

Official weigh ins are every 2 weeks.
But I will probably weigh in every day/second day to keep on track.

I still want to lose more weight.
And people have told me NO!
So i will try to maintain at the moment.
I know it would not be good for me to get under a BMI of 18.5 cause that can be unhealthy.
I just have to love me at this size, i don't want to put my health at risk.
I think I am a little oblivious to my size. I keep thinking im still bigger!
Yet today I am wearing a size 6 coat, size 8 jeans and a size 8 top.

I'm going out to dinner tonight... so I am going to have something light..
Maybe go for the fish? Yeah...
I always make really poor food choices when out :(
So will keep writing in here, probably not so much a food diary, just how I'm going!

I should be proud of myself though! I have lost 9kg, which doesn't seem like heaps but it is on my frame...
I was going to apply to a modelling agency when I reached my goal, i thought at my goal weight i would look the right build for it.
But I don't think so... I don't look tall enough despite being 170cm.

I'm actually going on a date tonight!
Woo!

Well done hun!! You're in maintenance!!! I'm very proud...and very envious!! :P

I'm glad you're thinking logically about losing even more weight...you definately don't want to go too far and end up unhealthy.

Congrats again....hope to see you here soon!

Well done Ella for reaching your goals, and even more credit to you, because you did it the healthy way. You have worked hard on your body and also if i might say without offending you, your mind and your approach to food. And well done too for working at keeping those negative body thoughts at bay, its hard sometimes and something we all have to work at.

Go Ella!!!! :D

Thanks everyone :)

I'm going to keep track of my weight every day or two for a while... I STILL can't find my scales grrrrrr.

Weight Yesterday Morning: 53.6kg

Breakfast: Breakfast Deli Roll from Maccas

Not sure about Lunch or Dinner yet. I am at Tafe tonight and meeting someone for lunch, so will probably be a roll or sandwich for lunch and not sure at all for dinner!

I had a pretty bad night last night... my ex came over out of the blue, i had a friend over and i know he would've got the wrong idea. He just was in tears saying how he couldn't live without me and how he wanted me back and was going to make everything better. I felt like such a bad person saying i couldn't get back with him... im so worried that he is going to do something stupid. And i cant exactly talk to him too. He ran all the way to my house which is an hour and a half walk away, then he wouldn't let me take him home so i guess he walked back. I just feek so incredibly guilty and bad... i just want him to move on but he just can't. And i told him that i didn't love him anymore... it was the only thing that would make him accept it, even though it was the meanest thing i have ever said to anyone.

I just feel so sick in the stomach.

Oh hun....you poor thing...

You did the right thing, regardless of how much it hurts. You can't be with someone just to make them happy. You have to do what's right for you. Giving in to him would just be leading him on and it would hurt you both even more in the long run.

You can't control him if he does something silly....if he did something like that, he obviously has more serious underlying problems...

Chin up hun - you KNOW you've done the right thing.

Big cuddles

Thanks Ali..

It seems that i need people to tell me i did the right thing...
I know deep down i did, i just feel terrible. I can't get the image of him out of my head. I've never ever seen him so distraught.
I really hope he finds someone.

Didn't get time to have lunch today, so i had 2 cup cakes that someone brought in for their birthday. Baaadd I know.. hopefully will pick some thing at tafe.
Bought my Mac today! One of my friends is picking it up for me then setting it up tonight. Can't wait! They're sooooo pretty. I got the TV tuner too, so all i have to do is stick this USB thing into the computer and it picks up digital TV. AND you can record on it!

Is it digital or analogue? if its digital, is digital TV in your area?

Also what brand is the tuner?

It is a Miglia TV Mini + (or a 2) I got it from the Mac store. Its just like a USB drive you plug into your computer.

We get digital TV, on our HD Plasma (without a box) and on my old tv (with a box). Maybe I have to have an outdoor antenna?

did it come with a little antenna to plug into the USB thingy?? Mine did and if I dont have that attached it doesn't pick anything up.

I also get much better reception at work than at home as we are in a valley at home and I work close to the city so I assume the signal is stronger.
