March Weigh In

March 1st Weigh In: 78.6 kilos (172.9 lbs)
Weight Lost In January: 0.7 kilos (1.5 lbs)
Total Weight Lost:
51.1 kilos (112.5 lbs)

Well this hasn’t been a very good weigh in for me this month. I’ve been to the gym consistently and kept my calories under 1200… except for those days I binged and ate thousands of extra calories… and it shows. I’m quite disappointed at myself because I know that 95% of the time I did really well and worked really hard, but it’s that other 5% where I ruined all my hard work. To be honest, I’m just glad to see a loss at all, it could have quiet easily been a gain.

I haven’t had much fill in my lap band since the middle of December, so I decided it was time to go back to get a top up to try and stop me from eating 6 slices of pizza at a time (like Sunday night). I enjoy being able to eat normally when I go out and not having to worry about food getting stuck, but my desire to fit into my size 16 jeans is stronger. I got .2 mls put in my band yesterday and I think I am now at 5.7 mls in a 10 ml band. I woke up this morning feeling starving, but my fruit and yoghurt went down VERY slowly at breakfast, so I can definitely feel the difference.

On the weekend I went to Myer and stumbled upon a cute Cooper St dress in the clearance rack for $30 (reduced from almost $200). It was a size 14 and the zip won’t even do up, but I thought it might be good to have an inspiration dress. I find clothes are the most inspirational tool for me in weight loss and most of the time when I am battling on the treadmill I am thinking of pretty dresses to get me through. I don’t have a picture of the dress because it must be last season and not on their website anymore, but hopefully one day it will zip up and I’ll be able to post pictures of me wearing it. One day…


  1. I've decided that everytime I have a tiny loss I'm going to call it maintaining. It sounds pretty stupid considering I've only lost 2 kilos but you have lost FIFTY-ONE and that's what you're doing. You are proving that you can have days where you go completely off the rails and it doesn't equate to a gain. I do understand your frustration though in training your arse off for not much scale loss but I bet you feel better regardless.
    Look forward to seeing you in that dress :)

  2. just wanted to say that a) 50kg is amazing and don't be so hard on yourself and b) I think you look great and really beautiful - I can't believe you are a s16, you look alot smaller and finally c) you are my inspiration and I have struggled to lose any weight with my band so I know how disappointed someone can feel bit remember 50KG!!!

  3. Yay, the trend down continues! And so does the inspirational journey. Congratulations.

  4. I can't wait to see you in that dress! :-) I think it will happen before you expect. And I agree with everything SM says above, you are an inspiration!


  5. Your current weight is what I wish I was, but at the moment, I'm at your 2006 weight. So disgusted with myself. I've never been at that weight.

    You've done so well! I still want to go ahead with the surgery myself, but still MONTHS away. Wish 2011 was over already.

  6. 95% strike rate is better than 5%... easier to build on :-)
    Good luck on getting into your inspiration dress, and I agree with the others, you are inspiring with your current loss :-)
    I'll send big happy thoughts to you, if that helps :-P :-D


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
