Scale Day

I weighed myself this morning for my normal Friday weigh in and much to my relief I have already dropped 3.1 of those annoying holiday kilos- 3 more to go (and then some...). Weird to think my body was retaining that much fluid, because it obviously wasn't fat if I got rid of it in 4 days. I am pretty sure that the other 3 kilos are fat though, I did consume a lot of chocolate.

I am still totally faking this diet, every time I see a fast food ad I am so close to going and buying it, I haven't felt like binging so much in ages. I am really hoping that my body just had a sugar/fat overload over Christmas and this is a period of adjustment until it gets it out of my system- sort of like a heroin addict!

I don't think it helps that I have realised my 10 year high school reunion is in March and I am starting to panic about it. My past history shows that every time I try to drop 10 kilso before an event, I instead gain 10 kilos and then make a feeble excuse to get out of going. So I know I shouldn't stress out about it, but for gods sake- it is my high school reunion, I have to do something!


  1. Well done! That's fantastic :)

    I don't think I'll go to my highschool reunion unless I have something to brag about. I just have no real desire to see most of the people I went to school with, and those that I do I'm still in contact with. I guess my 10 year reunion is still 3 or so years away.

  2. I'm so glad you got a good result on the scale. Even though I haven't weighed, my clothes are beginning to fit like they did before Christmas, so I know I haven't done too much damage, thank goodness.

    I hope you achieve the weight you need to in order to feel good about going to your high school reunion. Isn't it awful how many things being overweight robs us of?

  3. Way to go on your loss!!! I did ok long ago at my 10 yr reunion wasn't too chubby but my 20 yr I was fat and I hated the class picture. But, I'm glad I went anyway as I had a good time seeing old friends. Hopefully the next one I will be thinner.

    You can lose a lot before the reunion just don't make it your end goal. I used to make a goal such as a vacation or whatever and lose a lot only to then go off the healthy eating plan after the event.

  4. I've noticed with you, for every event you put this 10kg weight loss goal, end up putting a lot of pressure on yourself, and ending up feeling dejected and like a failure. Perhaps you can set yourself a health related goal prior to the reunion, rather than a weight one, as a change?

    Something like - "I want to exercise 3 times a week for 2 weeks in a row at least once before the reunion", or "I want to eat clean for 6 out of 7 days for at least 2 weeks in a row before the reunion". I also am adamant that doing something about the alcohol would help tremendously (although I'm like you, I love the stuff - BUT not only is it great health wise to moderate, but financially it's been good too)

    Other than that, well done with the 3 kilos lost!

  5. well done with the loss! I agree with marshmallow, set a different type of goal and if you stick with it the rest will follow.

  6. Woo Woo!! Good on you girl. Its amazing how much fluid and other crap your body retains when it consumes too much fat or bad things. Its weird, I find the more water I drink, the less fluid I retain. Who woulda thunk it.

    Dun worry about the high school reunion, everyones going to look different, looks dont make a person who they are, and the ones judging on looks will be the ones who arent very happy with their own. You will look stunning if you FEEL stunning!!

  7. Hmmmm. When you *really* think about it, are the people from high school truly worth stressing out about? You've got so much going for you and so much to be proud of... if you continue to feel good about yourself, that alone will make you shine at *any* social event. I'd forget all about the high school reunion and concentrate on what's really important... doing what's going to make you feel better about yourself.



Awww thanks so much for the comment!
