You have used 756 out of your net daily budget of 1370 calories and have 614 calories remaining. 15% of the calories are from fat, 29% from protein, 56% from carbs and 0% from alcohol.

This is what Calorie King has said to me for the last couple of days. When I don't eat many carbs (I mean bread, rice, pasta, chocolate, lollies, biscuits etc) and don't drink alcohol or too much caffeine, I physically cannot eat - I have to force myself to eat things, cos I don't get hungry. The trouble is - as soon as I eat something I shouldn't be eating, I get out of control and it's back to eating everything in site. What's worse? Eating 1000 cals a day and losing 500 gms a day (at the moment, I know it will lessen quite quickly and soon) or eating like a pig and putting on a few kilos every year?

I love not feeling hungry. But I hate having a net of 600 cals left over at the end of the day and thinking maybe i'm doing the wrong thing. If i'm not hungry, i'm not hungry, right?

Day 5

Weigh in day is Friday - cos it is!

83.3 this morning - yay me.

I know a lot of this will be fluid but if I can keep this up I will be very happy.
I'm very proud of myself.  I've been so strong.

10 kilos to go til I get to my lowest weight.

No-one ever says this is easy, in fact its very very tough, plus i'm going through some other stuff right now too that isn't helping.  But i'm hanging in there, and that's the main thing.

Day 3

Day three of no carbs - bloating has gone - lethargy has gone - caffeine withdrawal headache has nearly gone - need to remember how good this feels when the carbs are calling my name!

On track

I love being motivated and strong, it's the best feeling. You have to take advantage of it while it's around and kick it's arse.

I'm doing that.

We had a birthday at work today, I had to go and buy fancy cakes (can highly recommend Croissant D'or for anyone travelling to Canberra and needing cake! It's on West Row in Civic). So I chose and purchased said cakes, and took them back to the office, set the table, called everyone to afternoon tea and sat and ate my yoghurt and drank my water - and felt very smug!

Someone actually said they admired my willpower - well I don't normally have it so when it's around I have to make full use of it.

But that did make me feel much better.

I need accountability - i'm going back to using Calorie King each day and watching my calorie intake etc.  

I have spent some of this morning putting all of my CK data into a spreadsheet (from 2006 til now).  I started out in March 2006 at 78 kilos, gosh I wish I was there now!

Lowest weight in the last three years 73.3 - highest is today's (85.5).
I've gained (net) 7.5 kilos in three years (not too bad, could have been worse) but I need to fix it.
When I get back to 73.3 i'll then decide where i'm going from there.  I've been there before, I have the data to prove it!

Wish me luck kiddies .....


Rightio, enough piss arsing around. It's time to get serious.

I'm sick of being fat, tired and bloated.

I'll be back with a plan sometime over the next week, watch out world - this woman is on a mission to fit back into her wardrobe! (Literally).
