weight loss

Looks like a good day for a blog entry…

Today is Friday of week 9! WEEK 9!!! I certainly didn’t think I’d still be blogging and sticking to plan come week 9 but with the support of my friends, family and 64 Followers (64? I’m honoured that so many of you want to read the dribble I come out with each week 🙂 )  I have kept going. Just 1 week to go to the big Shouty Machine weigh in and I’m bricking it. I feel like I’ve let myself down somehow this past week and not sure as to why… Maybe it’s just one of those weeks. I’ve not had much social time since Saturday. Not working is starting to drive me crazy which I would normally lay on the sofa watching Jeremy Kyle and eating god knows what… but I’m not, If i feel the bored hunger strikes I pick up some fruit or go out for a walk. My steps are suffering not being at work too… this is also getting me down.

Right… something to brighten this miserable day… I lost 1lbs on Monday so my not so trusty scales total is now down to 22lbs loss. This is a good result. I’m worried I’m not going to hit my target on Friday…

Let’s talk about food!!! I have had pasta 2 days running (damn it was good) I made a cheese sauce out of almond milk and slices of spicy chilli cheddar cheese, one day with bacon another with chicken and it was SOOOO good! I have also found a recipe to make my own Chicken fried rice… for just 9sp per serving!!! compare that to the 1/2 container portion from the chinese takeaway at 16sp!! (WINNER) My weekly points are going to be coming down again soon and I need to start preparing myself for that… more 0sp snacks and I REALLY need to plan my meals… for example I ran out of my sandwich thins (3sp each) and struggle to find lunch (as I didn’t want to go shopping… I hate shopping) so I had a burger in a Tiger bread Roll at 8sp!!! 8!!! was it even worth an extra 5sp? no! did I miss eating it? No! This is all about making the right choices… not cutting things out of your life (cause hey, where is the fun in that?) I think I’m learning…

I came across this on Facebook this afternoon…


And I cannot believe How much I actually relate to this… I know my final goal is 10st 10 (150lbs) but ultimately my goal is to look in a mirror and not hate myself. They say no one can love you until you learn to love yourself but I do love who I am, I love everything about me except my body… I’m trying to rid myself of years of bad habits and it’s going to take a long time to get to where I will be happy… but If I get to a stage on this journey, regardless of what I weigh, where I look in the mirror and think ‘fuck’ cause I love what I’ve become, that’s my cue to stop… Cause if I think I’m beautiful… hopefully someone else will feel the same… and mean it… or more importantly…

I’ll believe them.

  1. Aloha beautiful,

    I just recently started my blog where I will write about my 60lbs weight loss journey (I like to call it my journey to healthy, strong and confident ;-)), beauty, fitness, different places around the world and different types of cuisines. I hope I will motivate and inspire you a bit as well 🙂
