On the way to a better me

Monday, November 8, 2010


Yet another unexpected loss, but yay! 600g down which was a surprise considering it was our anniversary on Saturday and I ate a couple of naughty things (i'll get to that in a minute). So that of course takes my total loss to 20.6kg's and only 4.4kg's to get to my Christmas goal of getting down to 100kg's.

I've been looking back at my previous posts and the photos (to be honest I can't STOP looking at them, hahahaha) The difference is amazing, I can't believe how small I look now, even with still a lot more to lost I look small, could it be that when I get to goal I will be TINY?? That will be a first in my adult life. I was a skinny kid but in my later year in primary school I ballooned, I can't wait to get rid of it all.

I feel that maybe my body is starting to get used to this weightloss caper? I seem to still be able to lose weight even if I eat something that's a bit naughty but eat great the rest of the time, maybe when I get to goal and am on maintenence I can go it alone?? I know that could be a bad thing but I am NEVER, I repeat NEVER slipping back into old habits, I don't want to go back to what I was, I'm beyond that now and I really like the way that I'm going. My new habits are SO much better now, I don't feel the need to snack and if I do it's fruit and yoghurt. I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything at all because I know that that crap is not good for me and I don't want it. I am in control, I can be around food that's not good for me that I once would have just eaten and not and NOT eat it, it's not dangerous for me, I'm not even tempted by it.

Talking about naughty things and not wanting them leads me back to our anniversary. Of course this was a day to indulge but I think I kept things in check. We went out for breakfast, I had scrambled eggs, spinach, some bacon mushrooms, tomato and a hash brown. It also came with a sausage but I didn't eat that, I also gave some of the bacon to my husband and it was delicious. I LOVE breakfast and a cooked breakfast is even better. I skipped lunch, I didn't actually need it after all of that and we were going out for dinner, but I did have a few fantales whilst we watched the stage production of Hairspray (which is you haven't seen it, OMG you should, it was fabulous and we want to go again, LOVE it) and then we went out for dinner. I had a steak with burbon sauce, fries and a salad, I also had a bread roll and some garlic bread. And because it was a celebration we had dessert, which turned out to be a mistake. I had a lovely lemon tart which at the first bite was delicious but that was really enough for me. After the first bite it became far too much and very sickly, it actually ended up giving me a headache. Now once upon a time I could eat a dessert no problem, I'm not really a sweet person (I'm a savoury girl all the way) but I could still eat it if we went out. Well I tell ya I doubt I can do it anymore, I think now it will just be a taste of someone else's, clearly my body know's what it wants and it doesn't want any dessert, not normal dessert anyway, low fat, low sugar I think which means I will have to make it myself, but atleast I won't feel like being sick afterwards and have a headache.

But as you can see I seem to have managed to even things out. Sure maybe if I hadn't indulged my loss might have been bigger, but hey, a loss is a loss and I'm certainly not complaining :D :D


  1. Well done I am very proud of you!!!!

  2. Good work on your loss Bec and congratulations on your anniversary (mine was Friday 5th). You will definitely make your Christmas goal your head is in such a good space and that, I think is 3/4's of the food battle.

    I had to make all this sweet stuff for my son's school cake stall and of course I tasted as I was baking and making, I didn't over do it, but boy did it give me a headache. I wondered if it might have been the sugar and now, that you have said the same thing about your dessert, I am positive it's the sugar. It makes it a lot easier to stay away from now too - I am a sweet tooth from way back, but like you, I am not really tempted by the "bad" foods anymore.

    Have a great day and I hope you were spoilt rotten for your anniversary.

  3. Great job-I too have been trying to lose that extra weight that I've accumulated over 5 years of marriage and after two babies! It definitely is NOT an easy feat!! ( I'm all guns for you!)
    Congratulations on reaching your anniversary too. :)

  4. Thanks Ma xoxo

    Thank you munklemoon :D
