This weeks equation

Is much better than last week's..

New Kitchen + ability to cook properly + ate out 1x (as usual) + water + some exercise (but still not as much as normal!) + normal leed up to WI = 1kg LOSS..

so I'm still behind by 0.3kg but I'm inching my way back. See what happens if you don't give up?? You get back on track and you lose!

Brad reached 2 MAJOR milestones with his WI today! He is now under 100kgs for the first time in about 8 years & he has officially lost a mammoth 20kgs! I'm so proud of him, he's really doing well! ♥

The Equation..

This weeks equation goes something like this..

Poor water intake + eating out 4 times (^sodium) + not enough planned exercise + poor sleep + constipation + different lead up to WI = 1.3kg GAIN on the scales this week!

But hey I have a new kitchen!! Foodwise I was good last week and even eating out I stuck pretty much to core. So I'm not terribly concerned as I know it will come off quickly. Here's to a nicer number on the scales next week!

AFTER - Obviously it hasn't got tiles, splashback or rangehood yet and there is one more cabintet to go in to the right of the fridge.

Thank you

To everyone to suggested I point core this week! Let me see now in no particular order.. Toni, Di, Christina, Heather, Tracy, Karen.. I dedicate this weeks loss of 0.6kg to you all thank you!

Isn't it funny how a number on the scales can dictate how you feel. A good loss will have you on a high for the whole week, a smaller loss for a day or so, and a "stay the same" or gain can make you feel rotten. It's at this stage that people think "is it all worth it?" I think what you need to do is accept that there will be gains along the way (and sometimes for no particular reason) and learn to look past them. Where would I be if I gave up after my first gain? Certainly not 53.1kg down I can tell you that for certain. I can't stress it strongly enough.. DON'T GIVE UP! Don't not go to WI just because you "think" you have gained.. If you have blown it.. go into damage control.. go for an extra walk or 2, save a couple of points for the next few days. Minimise the damage! You can do it.. but YOU have to want to!

I seem to be maintaining nicely!

Too bad I'm not trying to, I stayed the same this week, after 2 weeks of losing 0.2kg.. I guess I've hit another plateau so I'm pointing core this week to ensure I'm eating enough as this was a concern of some of the people that I was talking to from my meeting last Wednesday. So far I seem to be as I only have 18 points to play with. So I guess we will see what happens next week! If it doesn't but I may have to return to points for a week or 2, but I really would prefer to stay on core or at least Coints (Thanks Ek for the word! lol) for as long as I can, as I truely believe that long term it is what will keep me at goal.

Can I just say a huge thank you to everyone who reads my blog regularly. Knowing that you are reading helps to keep me on the straight and narrow. I know some of you don't comment online and that's ok (Hi J) because you tell me anyway! :) So thank you again everyone, your support means alot to me.

I'm often asked how I stay so positive, it's simple maths really, no it is.. I only want to lose the weight once, I don't want to lose the same kilos 2, 3, 4 or 5 times.. I CAN'T go back to what I was, I won't allow myself to.

Be the person you want to be, and live the life you want to live!

I forgot to blog!

Loss this week of -0.2kg again.. slow and steady wins the race! Although slightly frustrating, I know every little bit counts and I will eventually get to goal, and more importantly stay there because I love the way I feel, I love the way I look, I love not feeling embarressed about my size!

Before the meeting I work at on Monday I popped into the Op Shop attached to the church looking for a new pair of Jeans. Well I found some they are Blue Ridge brand so just from Big W BUT they are a size 8 yes that's right! I own a pair of size 8 jeans! If that wasn't good enough, they cost me $2! I bought them with the loose change in my purse! I'm not completely delusional though, I know I'm not size 8 everything else I try is either a 12 or 10, but that's not the point! lol. Continuing with the Op Shop theme I decided it was time for my first ever pair of Levis! I found the perfect pair at another Op Shop(except the will need taking up) they are still a bit firm and so I have a muffin top when I wear them so stay tuned for when they actully fit and I can wear them, it should only take a few weeks! They cost me $6.75 and still have the sticky tape down the leg that tells you the size and length! They haven't even been worn! Do you think I'm hooked on op shopping yet?

I've been really busy this week with "house stuff" The ground has been built up, the foundations were dug and cemented, so things are happening and hopefully will happen even more quickly next week. Our builder is teasing me by asking to start packing up the kitchen, I'm trying not to get too excited... yet!
