Oh oh oh, and also if I had lost just 100g more, I'd be exactly half way through my journey. Oh well, next week!

Well done!! you are doing so great! I think it's such a good idea that u do this while you are still in your teens as you'll stil be growing so your body uses more energy. And you can get it out of the way and have the rest of your life to enjoy your new bod! Well done xxx
To wish you were someone else is to waste the person you are

Thanks soo much guys! I'm over the moon. :mrgreen:
I haven't got a clue in the slightest how to reward myself. I'm off to Kuala Lumpur in October so I'm saving every penny I can at the moment.
Hmmm.... what to do, what to do.

Blah blah blah, teenage crisis.
I've been seeing this guy for over a year. When I say 'seeing' I mean in every aspect (including being told that he loved me) apart from actually being called his 'girlfriend'. He didn't want a relationship, he was afraid to commit, etc. And now, he's gone and got himself a girlfriend. I don't understand why I'm so upset when I knew that there was never going to be anything more that what was. Stupid teenage emotions.
So I'm kind of falling back into that spiral of self-doubt. Thinking if I'm not good and beautiful enough for him, I never will be for anyone else.
Finding it realllly hard not to find comfort in food like I used to.

Hey darl, don't kick yourself, if he couldn't see the beauty you have inside and out then he's not the right guy for you. I know when you have given a lot to a relationship, whether it will work out or not, it's quite upsetting when it ends, and you sometimes wonder what YOU did wrong. But don't give up, you are a strong women and don't let anyone, including yourself tell you otherwise! Sometimes WE are our worst enemy. You have made a massive change in your life, losing weight and getting fit, so instead of doubting yourself and putting yourself down, pick yourself up and BELIEVE that you are worth so much more! Instead of using food for comfort hun, go out and do something for YOU, whether it's a massage, new haircut, get your nails done, or buy a gorgeous dress and go out and have some fun!

All the best hun

You have learnt a very important lesson early on in life, be thankful you know now! Don't give yourself to anyone who will not do the same for you, you deserve better, hun! If someone claims to love you, but won't call you his girlfriend, run! He's a user.

There is someone out there who is going to give you everything you want. :)

Thanks guys. Still feeling pretty stupid about the whole situation, although I'm happy to admit I didn't fall off the wagon as I expected. :)
So I weighed in this morning, and had a 900g loss. Pretty stoked as it's been a fair few weeks since I've lost anything near a kilo. Down to 88.4kg now, which means I've lost exactly 21kg since I started and am now official more than halfway through my weightloss journey!
And on my YouTube vlog thingo, I joined a fellow Australian on a mini 12-week challenge. Goal was set out for me to get down to 85kg by October for my trip to Kuala Lumpur. I think (if things keep going as they are) I'm well on my way. I've got to lose 3.4kg in two months. Achieveable? I think so. But I don't want to get too far ahead of myself. ;)

Hmmm, never had this happen to me before. I maintained the exact same weight as I did last week.
I didn't have a great weekend. I had a friends birthday dinner (which of course included a glass of bubbly), but I didn't go nuts. And I have exercised more than usual this week.
I'll give it another week, and see how I go at next week's weigh-in. If I see the same thing, maybe it's time to shake things up a bit....

I dont know if youre the same as me or not but in my experience if I had a slow week, and yes I have had them :wink: , I found I usually made up for it over the course of the next couple of weeks.

Best of luck with it :D .
