Ses counting down (slowly....)

Postby Ses » Sun Oct 14, 2007 9:07 am

Thought I had better join in this one, as I am at the downward end of the journey.

I recently swopped from ww to counting cals, and was rewarded with a massive loss the 1st week, but things have slowed down again (but at least the scales are still going down)!

Part of the problem is that I am still on a restriction diet for a health issue, so end up eating the same things every day. I also am not getting enough cardivascular excercise at the moment, due to a hectic study schedule.

Support from anyone will be greatly appreciated!

Hay Ses!

You have done awesome - to lose 12.5 kilos is absolutely fantastic.

I am doing Kate Morgan (shakes) and I have to admit that I have not done one bit of exercise (apart from housework and walking around the shops!!!), but I will start to incorporate that into my plan a bit further down the track.

As far as eating the same thing everyday - I basically do that now too. Because I am on shakes twice a day, the only thing that I do is mix up when I have them (eg breakfast and dinner and then I have a sensible lunch of fish and vegies).

I must admit that this can be quite tedious especially when you are studying - so maybe on the weekends, make up some dishes that you are able to have and freeze them for the week. Use your imagination and create new and interesting recipes for yourself (I made a fantastic San Bow Chow (SP) using my meat portion and vegies and sauces - and it was fantastic and so filling.

Anyway if it is encouragement you want - then encouragement is what you will get from us (and the odd boot too if it is required - hehehehe).

Take care
Michelle
2008 - my year to be great!!

Wow ses - you've done a fabulous job so far losing 12.5kg. You really are in the home straight. Study is important right now but it's only for a few more weeks? As far as getting bored of the food you can eat, have you visited one of the groovy websites like www.taste.com.au and Better health for some ideas on different recipes? The Better Health site has some excellent tools for sorting what type of food, restrictions etc.

Good luck!
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Thanks for the ideas peoples, but my diet is soooo restrictive that the websites will not help much ... it is gluten free, rice free, corn free, potato free, dairy free, nut free, egg free, meat free (except roo and rabbit), soy free, fish free ... I think that covers most of it!

As I am still allowed my red wine I am happy most of the time tho....

8 weeks of study to go, but overwhelming amount of work. I am home again for the morning as one of my boys is sick (although I am sure the books will be more benefit then the kidney surgeries I would have been at). Hubby is swopping mid-afternoon so I can go to my tut and night shift.

I need help to keep on track food/excercise/weight wise, and hit the books!

maybe try http://www.kurma.net he does mostly vege recipes, a lot are suggested to serve with rice, but I think most you might be able to adapt??
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

# 1 son is now less an appendix. Luckily I know all the people involved in his surgery and care, so all is well. And I know I can recognise appendicitis when it happens (not just as a paranoid mother!).

I am tired and a bit lighter ......

This morning I jumped on the scales to find that I was 70.8!! (yeas, sadly I am a multiple daily weigher :oops: ).

Does anyone else find that when they see the numbers going the wrong way way for no apparent reason, it is followed by a good loss??

I needed the boost after my week - I am battling a supervisor, dealt with my sond op, and have pulled out of the trial I was taking part in (re exclusion diet), as the two specialists involved cannot seem to co-ordinate follow up appointments. I was supposed to start reintroducing foods 4 weeks ago, but still have not been able to see 1 of the people involved (let alone 2!).

Consequentially I have taken matters into my own capable hands, and reintroduced white fish this weekend. And was it good! So far so good, but I will give it a week before adding another food group.

This means I will be able to eat out with the family in Sydney next weekend without being too difficult.

The cows are still at home Shel, the ducks are brooding a batch of eggs and the apples have set on the trees. My vegie patch is growing well despite multiple battles with the dogs and cat who think the dirt is dug just for them...... My rock wall is growing, the paving is nearly finished and the pool warm enough top swim in.

Now I just have to find time to study!

Sorry for the ramble......
