Friday Weigh In- 1 June

Well this has been a very bad start to my Final 15 attempt...

Start: 87.5 kilos (192.5 lbs)
Last week: 86.6 kilos (190.5 lbs)
Today: 86.9 kilos (191 lbs)
Difference: + 300 grams (0.5 lbs)

I had planned to eat off-plan last Friday night for a family trip to the footy. I knew lots of alcohol and greasy footy food would be involved and that was fine because one off-plan meal a week does not hurt. In fact, it is mandatory for me! Unfortunately one night somehow turned into an entire weekend of absolutely terrible eating.

After one too many drinks on Friday night I was a little hungover on Saturday and AJ decided to be nice and buy me my favourite hangover foods. I had no resistance and I pretty much ate all the food in the photo below over the course of the weekend. It was equal parts delicious and sickening.

I am disappointed in myself for making such poor choices over the weekend. Well, actually it wasn't so much what I ate (even though it was totally calorific), but the volume of food I consumed. It is one thing to throw caution to the wind and indulge in your favourite foods and enjoy it, but it's completely stupid to eat past the point of comfort for 2 whole days. I get so frustrated at myself for continuing to eat well past the point that I feel sick to my stomach. What in the hell is wrong with me?

On a positive note, I am happy that I managed to limit the damage by getting back on plan this week. It could have been so much worse than a 300 gram gain so I am grateful for small mercies. Fingers crossed I manage to get through this weekend without eating the entire biscuit aisle again.


  1. bless AJ for thinking of you! You'll have to re-train him to buy you 1 biscuit instead of a pack(s) though!!!!! LOL

    Next week will be better :0)

  2. I have the same problem. Small tastes turn into feasts. I am sure that my body thinks that I will NEVER eat again. And I super wish that horrible after eating sick feeling came at the very start of the binge!

  3. I love your blog so much, I have been following you for a long time. You are so honest, pretty and funny, you inspire me on my own weight loss journey:) I have a question for you though, a couple of years ago you posted a picture of a peanut butter chocolate ripple cake, and me being a food lover it looked amazing so I still remember it(!!). I have never been able to find the perfect recipe, could you share it? I am a Norwegian woman living in the US and I would love to make this cake when my niece comes to visit this month. Keep up the good work, I know you'll get back on track!

  4. Um, what is a snickers POD and how do I get some?? :P


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
