Reality Check

I have lost a small amount of weight so far this year.

5.4kg to be exact.

I have stagnated in February not achieving much of anything.

I have started March with daily walking but the nutrition is shite.

Here is a photo of me on Saturday night that highlights just how bad I am, and to think I was 5.4kg heavier than this on 1st January!!

If you compare it to a photo of me on my own hen's night, 19 months previous:

it's rather tragic!!

Time to get the shopping list under control and prepare for healthy meals.

You can do it. Organise it. Be that domestic goddess extraodinaire.

God, I'd be so happy if I'd lost 5.4 kgs this year!

I had the same feeling Saturday - not with a photo but I caught a side on look at myself in the lift elevator and realised I'm ummm.. not as thin as I thought I was... big shock! And I was wearing extreme underwear. I guess we need these wakeup calls to get us into action.

You can do it, you know you can. Nutrition is definitely No. 1 in weight loss. If you don't get your nutrition right, you can exercise all you want and still not get results.

There's a girl at my work who exercises like a demon ie. hours in the gym and then says she can have her coke and full packet of tim-tams because of it, in one sitting mind. She's a lot bigger and I don't think she gets it. I know I don't have hours to spend in the gym and would rather be doing something else with my time.

Eat smart + exercise smart = more energy + feel good

I think the idea is not to even think of it as dieting as the mind says "Uh oh starvation coming" and wants to make you eat...so it becomes a starvation eat thing... like I said totally getting out the wheat flour (ie cakes etc etc breads helps but it si slow) you look okay to me.
