So originally my goal was to lose 15 kilos by Tarn's wedding.

I've lost 8.2* (slight 200** gram gain last week, but thats okay. I'm back on track now) so far - and the wedding is 5 weeks away. Now, while I'd love to hit that 15*** kilo mark - to lose 6.8**** kilos in five weeks is a fucking ridiculous goal - thats the kind of eating that leads to binging in my opinion (no purging though, can't throw up to save my life) - and with the silly season coming closer (next weekend - friday night, work xmas party - saturday night, pandyr's xmas party - sunday, picnic work thing), there's no way I could, or even would, discpline myself to that degree.

So - I'm not far off the 10% of my (old) fat(ter) self mark, and I figure if I can achieve this by the wedding, then thats good enough for me.

*18 pounds
** 0.4 pounds
*** 33 pounds
**** 15 pounds

I discovered my cellphone has a handy converter. Not sure if its really that handy, but for you 'mericans who read this, now I'm speaking your language. ; )

I'm quite nervous about weigh in tomorrow. It's a 7am meeting. ARGH. My 5pm Wed one was cancelled, and I wasn't told - they have our address and phone numbers, so I'm a bit pissed off. I emailed them to ask them what was going on, but they haven't bothered to email me back. As much as this pisses me off, I know that this programme is the one that works for me (after all Jenny Craig, the Natural Way etc - I always put the weight back on), so I can't complain too loudly - but if you were a new person, you'd really be put off coming back I reckon.

Wish me luck!

My loser magnet is back. I don't know what it is, but wherever I go, the loser to end all losers at that particular place will come and talk to me.

The other day I was sitting in the alley outside work reading and this guy stopped.

He's in his 50/60s with a HUGE belly.

'Good book?'
'Ye-' (can't get the full word out as he has to continue)
'Bet you its not as good as the love affairs I had in 1951!!!!'
'heh yeah' (hanging head hoping he will get the fuck away)
'I worked in that bar there, and I tell you I would come stand in this very alley, and women would come on to me - I had more women than I had hot dinners'
'cool' (fuckoff fuckoff fuckoff)

He fucks off.

Maybe I am projecting a more confident air or something. Can anyone tell me how to stop it?

Give it a whirl.

Countdown to weigh in: days

Oh yeah - sign up for this!
I missed weigh in this week due to the meeting I go to being cancelled. They told us it would be in two weeks... and this was the week I thought it would still be running so I'm quite pissed off. I emailed ww as the time etc is still on the website and still haven't heard back. They also have address and phone numbers for us but no one bothered to get in touch. It fucked me off no end... so I think I will go to the 7am brekky meeting with the same leader on Fridays.

Hey you always weigh less in the morning right? heh.

Eight weeks.

Countdown to weigh in: Still three days
Well, I only lost 400 grams this week - not much in the grand scheme of things, but better than a gain!

Went with Tarn to pick out bridesmaid dresses. Am quite scared that in eight weeks, I'll be in a strapless number having photos done, and standing in front of people watching two great friends get married.

Need to knuckle down....
