Sucking It Up


Since I have recommitted to actually losing these last 10 kilos things have been up and down. As usual, I am fine throughout the week, but weekends are tough. Too much eating out, too much take away and way too much chocolate!  I won’t even get started on the wine for fear of being called an alcoholic in the comments yet again... (I promise I am not even close to an alcoholic!) I really wish I had the motivation I had when I lost weight in the first 18 months of having the lap band. I have completely lost my ability to just suck it up and stick to a diet. This is somewhat understandable I guess because, let’s face it, dieting really sucks!

I am beginning to think I may need to go and see my lap band doctor and get a fill. I have noticed lately that I am able to scoff my food down at an alarming pace and eat all sorts of things that I probably shouldn’t be able to eat with a band. God I hate going to see the lap band doctor though…  getting that look when you weigh in and see that you haven’t lost any weight again even though you promised you would. I might just have to suck it up and deal with the shame if I want any chance of getting through the holidays without a massive gain.

I must admit that I am yet to go to my new gym as much as I would have liked because I did pilates last week at work and I was left with very severe DOMS. Just getting up from the couch was difficult for most of the week, so the idea of going to the gym was not appealing.  ß Case in point of my complete lack of ability to toughen up and just stick to a diet and exercise plan!

No more excuses, it’s time to make some goals for the week:. 

·         Make an appointment to get a fill in my lap band
·         Go to the gym four times
·         Enjoy only one off plan meal on the weekend

Those goals really shouldn't be too hard... Feel free to give me hell if I don't stick to them!

What are your goals for the week?


  1. My goal for this week is to go for a run and hope that my knee holds up. I have been really good about resting it but I really want to get back to running - tonight is the night I am hoping to test it out depending on what happens after work today.

    I would like to lose at least 1kg this week - I am on track for that so here's to not blowing it in the next two days !

    Good luck with your goals this week.

    Love, hugs and positive energy !

  2. Good luck with Gym & your other plans!!!

    My goals: run 5 times; walk the loop saturday & sunday no matter how hungover I am & eat sensibly on the weekend :0) ie 2 chicken wings Sat night instead of 10!!! etc etc etc.....

  3. Someone commented on your alcohol intake??? lol, that's actually quite funny.
    Goals for the week are to stick to my food plan and un-guiltily (I know thats not a real word) enjoy my work party on Saturday night.
