So I've had a shocker of a weekend, if you read my non-weight loss blog you'll know why.

The thing is, after something like that I'd usually go and eat. And eat. And eat.

But my mindset seems to be changing. I don't want to eat comfort food. I want to clean the house then go for a big long walk and get rid of my anger that way.

I also drank several rtd's last night. At three points a go, I need to go for a walk.

And I love to walk in the rain.

Well, I'm back from my meeting and I had a loss of 1.7 kilos. Not entirely sure how I managed it, but the Pandyr thinks it may have been the fact that I've been walking to work, and climbing the stairs, and wandering round our massive building. I think so too.

Every night after weigh in I text a couple of mates and my mum to let them know how I've done. It's a good motivator. 10.8 kilos until I reach my first goal of a 15 kilo loss. I'm pretty happy right now, but I do know that a loss that high isn't that good for my body. Once I get under the first 15 (thats almost rugby orientated), I know I'll start slowing down. It's healthy to lose around 500 grams a week - and while I'm estatic right now, I know that a slower loss means a greater chance of keeping it off once I reach goal.

There's a woman at our meetings who has lost 60 kilos. 60 KILOS. She looks great but she's not ready to quit yet, and wants to reach goal. She gets some negative comments like 'I think you look great, isn't it time you stopped, but she's determined to keep going.

If she can do it, so can I.

Wish me luck.

I just typed a lovely thoughtful post on weight loss and blogger ate it.

Oh well, you'll never really know if I did or not ;)

Well, weigh in tomorrow, which always brings a slight feeling of dread.

If I haven't lost I know why - I've not been the best this week - not eating any free point food as snacks, which I will remedy next week (things like cucumber, carrots etc) and if I have, it will be a bit of a shock, although I have been walking to work.

It doesn't help either that I haven't been planning my meals properly. Think I might have to pick up a ww cookbook, and steal some dinner recipies from there.

If any of you know how to put my email address in my template please email me at with instructions. thx
So, last night I went out drinking with my workmates. I was on my fourth bicardi and diet coke, when I clicked - they're serving doubles - thats 8 points. Fuck.

Oh well, I had fun, and at least I can roll those excess points on to my next couple of days (ie eat a bit less - or eat more no point foods).

I think I'm getting the hang of this now. I haven't had any chocolate cravings, but I think thats because of the spirilina. The Pandyr is making me walk to work, which I really enjoy, and I'm saving those extra points, so if I do have a blowout, I don't have to worry.

I made a virtual model of myself here and I put in the right weight and damn she looks way better than I do. I can't wait to compare it to when I've lost my first 15 kilos.

Day One - Week Three

Well I lost 700 grams over the last week - I'd expected to do a lot worse, so I'm happy with that. That takes it now to 2.5 kilos lost. gone. bye. yay.

Day Six - Week Two

Well its weigh in day tomorrow. Eek.

Ate over my points today due to me not being able to resist a foot long subway chicken. With bbq sauce. But lots of vegies, including gerkins. mmmm.

Oh the 1.8 kilo loss of last week converts to just about four pounds.

This week I think we get a converter thing - you slide in the kjs and fat and it works out the points. Woohoo.

Day Four - Week Two

I'm having a bad week. I'm not sure why. I guess it will work out on weigh in day. I've been okay today and yesterday - maybe me undereating my points will make up for over eating on Thursday and Friday.

Day Two - Week Two

I missed posting yesterday because the Pandyr took over the computer. Boys and their games. *yawn* I had a bad day too, with two pieces of pizza for lunch, although I would of eaten way more before I started this relearning to eat game (diet is such an evil word).

Fingers crossed I have a good weekend.

Day Seven

Well week one is over and I have a huge loss of 1.8 kilos. I have no idea how to convert that into pounds, but lets just say lots.

I've got quite a lot to lose - and no I'm not comfortable mentioning how much just yet - at the moment I'm focusing on 15 kilos before Tarn's wedding in January. I think breaking it down into fairly achievable steps will help me - rather than focusing on the total amount.

On to week two... wheeeeee.

Day Six

Weigh in day tomorrow. I'm not too worried. I was thinking today about how much I used to eat compared to what I've eaten over the last six days, its considerably different - I'm not having breakfast, then a muffin, then lunch and a cake, then chocolate later, then dinner.

I'm being sensible.

The only other habbit I need to get into is getting my fat arse to the gym. Otherwise I'm gonna come out of this looking like a roly dog.

Day Four - Part Two

So I worked out why I'm so freakin hungry - its because the first week is Fast-tracked. Apparently this means that the first week you get enough points for your weight that you can survive, but you'll start eating the correct amount of points in week two. Mental note to self - read the books they give you at the meetings. It's all explained. Dickhead.

I weighed myself at Jamie's today. I think I've lost about three kilos. In four days. That just shows you the amount of crap food I was eating. I haven't had any chocolate. Or lollies. Or chips. Or alcohol. Wonder how long I can keep that up for?

Coutdown to weigh in: Still three days.
Day Four

All I can say is thank god for vanilla diet coke.

Day Three

Okay so its only breakfast time, and I'M NOT HUNGRY!

Of course the mcdee's pancakes and hot chocolate (6.5 points - or is it 7 - shit) have helped.

How come I'm not as hungry on the weekend??

Countdown to weigh in: Four days.

Okay so this is day one of the new weight watchers lifestyle.

Fuck I'm hungry.

I only ate 20.5 points - my daily allowance is 20. Jumped on the scales (well not jumped, cause I would of fallen through the ceiling and into level two) and got the shock of my life at the weight I was.

Out damn kilos. Out. Or off. Whatever.
