Deja Vu

I am settling back into a pattern of (mostly) healthy eating and exercise. It is really not a huge focus for me right now when I have so much going on at work and home. I am just chugging along with it and doing the best I can, when I can and living my life in between. It is actually so much easier to stay on track when I take the focus off weight loss. I often spend so much time agonising over it that it consumes me, lately I don't have time to worry about it so I just get on with it and do it.

The good news is that my clothes are fitting me again and the numbers on the scale are coming down. Though until I see my lowest weight of the year again I don't get too excited by any of the numbers I see. Any number over 100 kilos is pretty much dead to me.

It is kind of like deja vu losing the same weight that I lost a few months ago. The same things are happening at the same times. "Oh yeah my jeans fit me when I get to this weight" and "oh yeah my top roll of fat shrinks a bit at this weight". I am really looking forward to reaching some fresh weight loss and fitness milestones soon. In particular I really want to get back into my skinny jeans. The last time I wore them I had to do some intense denim stretching exercises and I almost damaged an internal organ. If I can ever get those babies on again (and be able to breathe) I will popping a champagne cork. Any excuse...


  1. Interesting. I've not really gone backwards from this weight yet, so my body is doing all sorts of weird and wonderful things at the moment due to my exercise routine and healthier eating.

  2. i know how it feels for your skinny jeans to start feeling really tight. i have different lots of clothes depending on what weight i am feeling and looking. man why does it take so long to lose weight but such a short time to gain it back.

  3. Ugh, the only thing worse than going through the losing weight process is the re-losing weight process. You're all like, "Haven't I done all this before?!"

    Hopefully when I'm in Melbourne we can go for some nice walks together! :-D

  4. I could have written this post! except for the champagne cork bit... gunna stay away from that stuff. it's EVIL. LOL

  5. I know EXACTLY how you feel!!! I have lost and re-gained the same 5 or so kilos about a hundred times in the last few years! I do find it is defintely easier to be healthy when ther is less of a "focus" on weight loss and you approach it with a slightly more "relaxed" frame of mind. When all I am thinking about is "the diet" I start to feel deprived and then binge my head off!!! One day at a time....


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
