Well I didn’t put any weight ON this week, but nor did I lose any. And deservedly so. I did stuff all exercise and although I didn’t eat much crap, still eating too much, particularly at night.
So, still sitting at 107kg. Really need to kick this up.
Well I’m two days late with the update, and I’m not going to do measurements every week, just weight. Jenny Craig does measurements once a month, so that’s what I’ll do I think. Lost one kg last week, but I actually felt heaps better for the adjustments I made. Walked almost every day (dusted of the pedometer to keep me honest!) and ate heaps more veggies than I have been doing. Still eating too much, still having trouble with snacking at night, but better, overall I think. I’m *thinking* about stuff like food and exercise and when I can make opportunities to walk, or what do make for dinner etc, which I wasn’t before.
Had great walk this afternoon, down on the beach, dragging the pram around on the sand – excellent exercise! Plus got to look at clever sculptures using recycled materials which the kids enjoyed too. Not sure whether the lovely casserole-y stew we’ve been having for dinner is as weight-loss friendly as I’d like, but it’s chocked with veggies, so that’s a start! Am loving my slow-cooker 🙂
Got a letter from Jenny Craig today offering $50 off the first week of food. Still debating whether to go on the program for a few weeks to kick start my portion control or not. Will think about it.
I’m going to do this.
Start Weight: 107 kg

Four months and 1 week. Approximately 17 weeks, approximately 1.6 kg per week.
Upper Arm: 36cm
Strategies: Eat less! Portion control is important. Eat more fruit & veg. Cut out the crap! Exercise! Take Max for walks on the beach. Take kids for bike rides. Walk to shopping centre for bread & milk etc. Go swimming when David is home.
I finally bought a set of scales this week. Tonight I finally weighed myself. There will be a new eating and exercise regime beginning (re-instating really) in this house. I am horrified and a little disgusted right now.
