First Weigh In

I am very pleased to announce that after almost 2 weeks I have lost 3.3 kilos (7.2 pounds)! I couldn't believe it when I stepped on the scales and saw that I had lost that much. I feel a huge sense of relief to get that 110 number out of my head. I am now only 4 kilos away from my lightest weight of the year, so it would be great if I could achieve that (and more) by then end of this year.

I am a bit surprised that I did so well considering that last weekend was a bit of a disaster calorie wise. I drank 3 bottles on wine on Friday night and then was so hung over on Saturday I just ate whatever to "settle my stomach". I will definitely be steering clear of alcohol this weekend.

The best thing I did was buy The Biggest Loser exercise DVD. I absolutely love it. I have only done the low intensity work out, but to me that was extremely high intensity. I felt like I worked out every muscle in my body. The best part was that I could do every exercise. A lot of exercise DVDs I have tried I can't physically even attempt some of the moves because I am just too fat and it gets in my way.

In slightly horrifying news, I have been invited to my 10 year high school reunion in March of next year. I knew this was coming, but I didn't think it would be until November next year- when we actually finished high school. I am trying not to panic, but if ever there was a night I will be judged it will be at my high school reunion. It is definitely a bit of added incentive to keep going with the low GI eating and exercise.

Finally, the good news for me is that I now have a 4 day weekend. Tuesday is a public holiday here in Melbourne for Melbourne Cup Day and I am taking Monday off just for good measure. I will try my best to keep eating healthy and exercising because I do tend to struggle a bit without routine.


  1. Yay, that's brilliant darl! Huge congrats. You should be so proud of yourself!

    Yes, I'm looking forward to (not) my 10-year reunion too... it's in July next year. Sob! I couldn't think of anything worse right now!

    Keep up the good work sweets

  2. Fantastic loss chick, hope you have a neat long weekend.

  3. Well Done! When you said 110 that seemed a bit of an extreme gain, even for vacation, some of it had to be water/flight weight.

    Either way, I'm glad it's come off!

  4. Grr - maybe I shold dig my DVD out. You make it sound better than I remember. Ha.

    Congrats on your loss. That's amazing!! At this rate you will turn some heads at the reunion! :)

  5. What a fantastic loss!!! Go you .... Almost into virgin weight!!

  6. Nicely done! Hope you have a terrific and relaxing long weekend!

  7. Hey! Just replying to your comment, thank you! *blush*. In the second photo I am eating okonomiyaki. It's basically a dish filled with whatever you ordered (in that case pork) and cabbage, breadcrumbs, and a type of batter, with an egg mixed in. You poor it on the hot grill in front of you to cook it (which is why I'm waving the spatulas around like a mad woman).


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
