Friday Weigh In- 13 July

Start: 87.5 kilos (192.5 lbs)
Last week: 83.2 kilos (183 lbs)
Today: 82.8 kilos (182 lbs)
Loss: - 0.4 kilos (0.9 lb)
Total: -4.7 kilos (10.3 lbs)

Well I am absolutely stoked to see the scales going down this week, even if it isn't by very much, especially since earlier in the week I sneaked a peek and they had spiked right up. It is just really nice to see an 82 instead of an 83 and be getting closer to the 70s again.

That being said, I am slightly disappointed it wasn't a bigger loss. I really am being 100% right now and keeping my calories under 1000 every day, exercising 4 times a week, and not having any treat meals. Even when I went to McDonald's this week (Hi Kelly!) I only had 150 calories of McBites and managed not to eat a single McFlurry. I seriously suspect the severe insomnia I have had for the past 2 weeks is affecting my body and wreaking havoc with the scales.

Anyway, I can't do anymore than I am doing so I just have to be patient and happy with any loss. I do feel like some of my clothes are fitting better so I know I am on the right track. I'll just keep my fingers crossed that I'll have one of those magical days soon were the scale drops by a kilo overnight!

I am really nervous about this weekend though because I am going away to Daylesford with a girlfriend for 2 nights. I am sure it will be a weekend of decadence and indulgence because she loves food and wine as much as I do. I would just love to have a nice weekend but not gain weight, which is something I struggle with when I travel. I am sure it can be done, Rachel just went to Morocco for 10 days and she managed to lose a kilo, so surely I can do this!

 Girls weekend...

What we'll be doing

Where we are staying

What we'll be drinking!

What we'll be watching


  1. I totally hear you about the not sleeping correlating with not losing weight. I guess the body doesn't get to repair & digest or whatever. I've been having trouble sleeping this week too....but I've also had trouble eating so it's balancing. As for the girls weekend, have fun! If it were me, I'd do my best to eat healthy so I could have some drinks (priorities, lol).

  2. Congrats on getting the scales heading in the right direction!!!

    Hope you have a beautiful weekend away & enjoy all your treats (DO NOT BEAT YOURSELF UP!!!).


  3. ** No Surgery Weightloss **

    >> 60 lbs lost without surgery <<

    Roca Labs Formula helped me to lose weight without going through expensive surgery. I got the gastric bypass result without the risk and complications involved. It is a safer and natural way to lose weight. Dr. Burks for recommended Roca Labs to me as an alternative to gastric bypass surgery. You could find more information on this link

  4. Wow~ that vacation looks awesome! Good work on the loss - keep pushing and get some sleep - the scales will reward you!

  5. Good for you with the scale moving! Stay the course and the scale will catch up. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. The place looks fabulous.

  6. Have you ever tried Melatonin for your insomnia? It was recommended to me for jet lag a few years ago and I could not believe how great it worked. I know take it when I have insomnia. It is a vitamin, so hopefully it would be safe for you.

  7. Sleep deprivation definitely affects weightloss. It is a fact. But well done on the total loss so far.

    I too got down to the 70s (albeit 79kg but it starts with a 7!!!) when I was really being good with my band but have gone back up to the mid 80s recently when I had all the fluid taken out because I got a bout of gastro. It is so soul destroying to have a gain after WLS! But like you, I am also back on 82kg and feel so much better.

    Good luck with it! It has to start dropping off soon because you are being so good. Fucking hell, 1000 calories a day! I have NEVER stuck to that.

  8. I hope you have a really lovely weekend Chick.
