Comparison photo

Weight loss comparison

This bag of dog food weighs 48lb. With Weight Watchers I have lost 45lb and 55lb in total. I cannot lift this bag up. BUT I was carrying that much extra weight on my body. It's no wonder I had heartburn all the time and my legs ached.

I feel so much better physically and mentally with the weight loss and I can't wait to reach my goal. I still have 16lb to get to my goal weight. But 16 is so little compared to 55.

Cassie decided she wanted a photo too. What's funny about her being in the top photo is that she weighs about 8lb. So her & the dog food equal almost exactly what I have lost in total.


Weigh-in 25/10


The receptionist at my meeting seems to think it's the 18th month.. hmmmm

ANYWAY! I lost exactly what I gained last week, which means technically I have lost 1.7lb this week! Because I switched out my light skirt for jeans and my jeans weighed 1/2 a pound more than my skirt did.

I am SO happy! I really thought I had gained again. My home scales are evil!

So yay me! Back to 45lb lost. Now to hit that 50lb mark and get myself another charm!

NSV 24/10

So 6 years ago I flew to the USA to meet Billy for the first time. I was nice and thin back then and I loved the way I looked. I bought some nice clothes with me in case we decided to go somewhere nice. Well the last night I was here we decided to dress up and go out for a really nice dinner.

Here is a photo of us all ready to head out:

Our last night

The dress is from Myer Miss Shop a fancy department store in Australia. Miss Shop is their juniors area. It's a Aus 12 which is equivilant to a US size 8 (juniors). The pink cardigan is from Portmans another Aussie clothing store. It's a medium.

Anyway last night I was going through my wardrobe again and thought "heck why not" and look at this:

Please excuse the crappy phone picture! How happy am I? STOKED!

I also fit into a bunch more stuff too.

*happy dance*

Quote #1

Source: via Nikki on Pinterest

When I first saw this quote I actually nodded my head enthusiastically. There are a few people this applies to in my life. People who have screwed me over big time. I have let go and moved on. But there is no way in hell I will let them back into my life and I don't think I could ever trust them again. 

Forgiving doesn't mean forgetting.

Sunday 23/10

So I have discovered another time waster. Pinterest. WOW! I had heard people talk about it but I didn't really know what it was all about and then I decided to finally check it out and man it's addictive.

I am able to lump recipes, fashion, beauty tips, decorating ideas and inspiration all together in the one place. It's wonderful.

I have found some really great inspirational quotes on there too and I have decided to start posting one a day on here.

I apologise for my absence on here. Lately I have been feeling a bit blah on the whole blogging/internet thing. But hopefully I am out of my funk and should be posting more often again.

Weigh-in 18/10


There it is! A gain! I knew it was going to happen! 

I weighed both of my weigh-in outfits and the difference was 222g, which is almost exactly 1/2 a pound. So technically I only gained 0.7lb. And this is only the 5th gain in over 40 weeks which is pretty frikken awesome if you ask me.

So I am back on track this week and hoping I can fix this little bump in the road.

Wish me luck!

Taking one for the team

If by team I mean me!

This week I have been on plan BUT I have used a lot of my weeklies, which is not usual for me. Plus I have not done an ounce of exercise and it's also THAT time of the month.

So I am about 99.99999% sure I am going to have a gain at weigh-in tomorrow. I say this a lot and am usually proven wrong. In fact in the 40 weeks I have been on WW, I have had 4 gains and 3 of them have been insignificant amounts.

But I am pretty darn sure about this one. So I am using it to my advantage. It's getting cooler here and sooner or later it's going to be too cold to wear my usual weigh in outfit which is this:

Also the skirt is getting REALLY loose so it's time I switched my weigh in outfit to a cooler weather one. So I will be wearing jeans and a t-shirt tomorrow and when it gets really cold I will layer it with a jacket etc.

I weighed both outfits and get this, my current on weighed 333g and my new one weighs 555g. A difference of 222g. How weird is that! Triple digits all round! So on the scales its a difference of 0.5 pound. So if I gain any more than half a pound that's all me. But I am hoping it's mainly TOM bloat and next week will be a loss.

A better day today! I did want to try to get some exercise in today to help balance out yesterday but it didn't happen. I just have no motivation to exercise. I know soon I am going to have to. I have been lucky enough to lose over 50lb just with diet alone but it's going to get to a point where that isn't enough.

Questions galore!

I found this on a random blog so I thought it was about time I did one again.

1.  Is there someone in your life you know you’d be better off without?
Well usually if I feel that way about a person I usually remove them from my life. Although some people will never be completely removed unfortunately. Life is too short to waste time on certain people.

2. Do you get criticized because of your body?
I have in the past. I used to weight a lot more and my ex was notorious for making me feel awful about my weight. I haven't really had anything said about it recently though.

3.   How much did you weigh when you were born?
You know I can't remember! I will have to ask my mum next time I talk to her!

4.  Did you kiss the last person you called?
It was my husband so yes!

5.  When was the last time you danced?
I dance around the house all the time. So within the last few days I guess.

6.  When was the last time you jumped on a trampoline?
Wow! Years ago! It messes with my neck so I avoid it.

All the time. But sometimes people's feelings will still be hurt, no matter what you do.

8. Are any of your friends pregnant?
Not that I know of.

9. If you have a hang nail, do you pull it or clip it?
Clip it.

21.   What’s something you know is bad, but you want to do it anyway?
Drink diet soda! Lol!
