Since my last post i have lost 700 grams (over 2 weeks) and I am starting to feel thinner. My clothes are a little more loose and I feel a lot more energetic. I started the weight loss pill recudtil on Friday and haven't had any side effects. I have heard terrible things about it but so far all its doing to me is when i eat i don't eat as much because i feel full sooner - and for longer.

A lot of people have given their dread stories about it but, meh, i think everything you take is about trial and error - if it doesn't sit well with you then don't take it!!

Well i went to Clipsal on Friday night - was awesome! Bumped into an ex boyfriend who said i was looking heaps trim (ha ha love looking good when u bump into an ex!!) Had a great time with my girlfriends and hung out with my cousin and his friends -was good to see him. Got to see Delamere, Faker, Operator Please, Pete Murray and the BEST of the night - PRESETS!! They absolutely went off - the oval was packed shoulder to shoulder!!! The other great part of the day all the exercise points i earned - we were walking from 2pm til 2am when i got home lol so 12 hours of walking/standing! We barely sat down!!!

Its my birthday next week on the 7th so next Saturday i am going out for my birthday!! Hopefully this week or next week i get a nice big loss as a present!! I'll be turning 23 and its unbelievable that so much time has gone past. i think its more so because 2.5 yrs ago i was 92kg and just split with my ex bf - for the past 2.5 years i have been saying lose weight, lose weight - i cannot believe all this time has passed and i have only just started down the road and ACTUALLY SUCCEEDING. Why does it take so long to get into the right head space or WHATEVER it is that makes you keep going and continue to lose weight. If only i did this 2.5 years ago i could have been so much healthier and happier...WELL at least i am doing it now and i am oh so proud of myself. 5.3kg have left my body forever and it doesn't seem like a lot of weight but i know it is. I just cannot wait until i have lose it all and i can stand up and say i actually worked at something and succeeded!

Well tomorrow is Monday and its back to work :( but i am hoping i finish on time to get to the gym, otherwise its on the treadmill!

Night night.

Today has been an average day - work has been bleh and quiet which means i'm copping all the whinging and bullshit from the technicians, but i get where they are coming from, if service is quiet then they dont get paid and they feel the pinch. Still it isnt my fault that only 5 people are calling for their roller door to be serviced, espeically at the moment with most Autralians not having much money - or at least not spending their money on their doors.

After work was good, met Kate for dinner and a movie at Semaphore ($7 all the time, how can you go wrong!) ordered a chicken stir fry no rice on the side. Wasn't too thrilled with what they brought out - for $12 bucks there could have been more than cauliflour, cabbage and celery in it!! Anyway they took their time making the food and by the time it came out we had 15 minutes to eat walk to the cinema, meet Kel and get into our seats before the movie started.

We saw confessions of a shopaholic. I enjoyed it, was funny and cute and loovvvved the clothes and SHOES!!! I'll have to read the books - heard they are great!

Anyway on a more disgruntled note - went on the WW site tonight and see that people have not stopped discussing random things that are non WW related and then having 25 comments of bullying and 'i dont like this, you are being reported'. Gee only 6 posts below that there is a POSITIVE thread going on and perhaps we should all pop over there and remember we're on a positive weight loss journey. Its so hard to ignore posts like those, but honestly why write a response saying you're so insulted when 20 other people have just done the same thing and they look stupid and it got nobody anywhere.

Everybody is entitled to their own opinion - you dont need to tell someone off for theirs.

My photos

OK I have a few photos of me in my underwear posing for the camera to show my weight - at this stage i am a little scared to put them up as i don't even like to see myself in minimal clothing so having other people look at them is quite daunting. HOWEVER i have taken some alternative photos today and will try to muster up my courage to put the others up soon.

NO i am not pregnant in the photo but YES my stomach is quite large!! Mostly due to stretched skin and i guess it runs in my family because my mum and sister both have pudgy belly's and they have always been smaller than me.

And as an added piece of news i weighed in on Friday and lost 500grams - making my 5%!!! It has been 10 weeks but i did it and the slower the better right? Right! So my next goal is my 10% which would put me at 80.2 - I'm aiming to have this done at the end of April so we'll see how I go.

Well its been a very lazy Sunday and I'm kind of glad to be going to work tomorrow for a change of scenery.


My first blog

Well...this is my first time at writing a blog. I have started this blog as a diary entry to my weight loss and my day to day life. I hope that writing down my thoughts here, on hopefully a daily basis, I can clear my head from any mental blocks that stand in my way!

To share a little bit about me, i'm a single mum to a 5yo daughter. I'm 22 yo and i work full time for a roller door company. I'm currently doing weight watchers and have been on and off for a year - but this time i've been successful and determined and have really fit right into the groove of eating right and exercising. I hope to post many photos of this journey as i will be going through a full body transformation and would love to have it documented in my blog for myself and others to follow and to look back on. I just need to figure out how to put the pictures up!
