Sunday 9th May 2010

Hey Followers,

Sorry it's been so long but it has been such a huge 4 weeks, I've had some ups and downs and now i think things are finally on track.

I have lost 10kgs all up so far and that also includes a very bad week of my putting on 1.7kgs :-( like i said bad week, but now i have pinched myself and stood tall and am doing great.

Ok Well over the last couple of the weeks i have tried a few things and the best thing i found was my version of a soup diet, i had a normal breakky which was weetbix or porridge and then soup for lunch and tea, with 2 pieces of bread and butter, and that filled me it was great i lost 3.3kgs in 4 days and i was flying high, i then fell into a little bit of a slum and went back to normal food, not bad food and i wasn't over eating and i still did loss weight but not as much as i was so this week im starting back on the soup and gonna try to stick to it this time :-)

Some non diet news, My partner brad and i have decided to part ways and enter into friendship as been in a relationship just wasn't working for us, i am very happy with this decision and i am actually more determined to loss the kgs ready for my next chapter in my life of children, love, friends and family!!.

I will try to keep you all updated more often, Happy Mother's Day as well to all those Mummy's out there ♥♥♥

Saturday 17th April 2010

Hey Everyone,

Well this week has sucked big time!!!! i have been so busy and also doing the right thing with my food and i haven't lost a dam thing, i don't know where i have gone wrong as i have been following my steps and counting everything, very dishearten but i am going to keep pushing on!!! i owe it to myself to go that little bit further and try.

So as of today i have gone out and brought myself a box of Opti-slim shakes, i never thought it would come to this, but i will try it for a week and see if not eating does anything???

Don't worry im not not eating, i need to incorporate 2 cups of veg and 2 cups of fruit a day along with the shakes for each meal and at least 2 liters of water as well. I really don't see this hurting me as i am morbidly obese and the Opti-slim recommends that obese people do this so here i am!!

You know i read so many different things and watch so many things to do with weight loss and all that and it astounds me how many different things one can do and shouldn't do its no wonder people aren't sure whether there Arther or Mather, i was told many moons ago only to ever weigh yourself once a week yest last night on the biggest loser the professional on there said you should weigh yourself every day???? go figure. but again it is each to there own what works for you might not work for me and vice verser.

Well i will let you know if anything changes as the hours progress, i mean days...hee hee.

but as there wont be menus as such i will just post if anything good happens, so until that beam of light shines down on me and zaps some fat away have a great weekend and a safe week.

Wednesday 14th April 2010


Tuesday was my no/low carb went alright had a few slips but in the end once i worked them out on my calorieking web page i was still under, so even thou i didn't go over i still feel bad cause i wasn't meant to have all those carbs...but oh well. stupid me got up this morning and forgot to weigh myself only just remembered now actually..hahaha. so i will just wait till Saturday when i do my weigh in and measure my body parts :-)

Tomorrow I'm trying the biggest loser shakes for breakfast and lunch to see how i go and then for tea im making butter chicken with a bed of rice, only 207 calories per serve i was quite impressed with that!!!

if i am hungry i have made sugar free piklets as a just in case snack with jam on them. :-)

I'm loving getting back into the kitchen and making food and also been able to realize that things can be made the healthy way and don't need to be filled with empty calories and fat. its amazing how once you make something and then work it out using calorieking that one small serve wont break the bank at all...every thing in moderation is so true and im finally getting the hang of it and learning from it :-)

so what did i cook today...well the piklets, zucchini and carrot muffins, cupcakes (for the girls not me) chicken and corn soup.

i froze everything for a later date, so simple, i place the muffins in a freezer bag 1 per bag, the soup in a bag as well and frozen flat and the same with the piklets.

Anyone can do this leave a day free a week and have a cook off with your self or get a relative over or even a friend to help, its amazing what you can do and how much you get out of it, like with bread i brought burgen soy and linseed placed 2 slices in a freezer bag and froze them that way, so from one loaf of bread i got 9 servings from it and if you freeze it fresh it un thaws the same as the day you put it in the freezer :-)

my chicken and corn soup i made i got 4 servings out of it and froze them all that will now last me up too 2 months maybe 3 depending on when i want soup again. Well worth it!!

tomorrow afternoon i will let you know how the biggest loser shakes went, tasted and alj the other good stuff....and i wonder if it will make a difference in my weight loss???? Hmmmm

Week D - Day 6 Thursday 8th April 2010

2 more sleeps until im on my own.....very excited to be going off lite n easy and going my own way, now that i no portion control and have learn't about my calories, i must admit i am a little disappointed with lite n easy there food is good but its not a sure fire way to lose a lot of weight which is what i thought would happen, in most diets i have tried i have lost kgs in the first week but with lite n easy i haven't even lost 5kgs, this is why im going back to last time i was on it i lost 22kgs in a few weeks. so i think my way is best, i just needed lite n easy to give me a kick up the bum and have someone show me in my own way and time about portion control and now I'm set.

This isn't going to be a walk in the park i no that but i also no from past try's i can do it, and with the help from my family especially my sister Caroline i can do this. i went out and got the new Calorie fat and carbohydrate counter book which is fantastic, great size for the handbag, also great if you get stuck somewhere and you have to eat shop food you no what you can still have...awesome!!

ok now for my 2nd last entry on lite n easy.

Breakfast: fruit and bran cereal with skim milk and corn fritters with bacon and tomato.
Morning Tea: red apple.
Lunch: hamburger with sliced tomato, beetroot relish on a sour dough roll and an orange.
Afternoon Tea: fruit and nut mix and a muesli cookie.
Additional snacks: Honey soy stir fry.
Dinner: Homestyle savoury mince with rice.

weigh in day tomorrow so stay tuned for the results.

have a lovely day and always look on the bright side of life. :-)

2.5kgs loss.

more news: i am only going to do lite n easy for this week and then my sister (Caroline) and i are doing calorie together, the only reason i did lite n easy was to understand what my meals portions were meant to be and to kick start my body into detox and to start the weight loss challenge, so as of Saturday 10th April i will be on supermarket food.

My mission: to cut out temptation i have signed up for home delivery with Coles online. my first lot of grocery's for the week will arrive Friday 9th April in the morning. i then sort threw it and assemble my meals, just like been on lite n easy. i have my week menu written out and i have worked out all my calories with calorie so im all set.

Saturday my tribe and the Knights went down to the weribee river and went for a walk on the track took about an hour.
Sunday we walked to Caro's instead of taking the car.
and today Monday i did 6 minutes of steps...which nearly killed me but boy did i feel good after wards, and then Brad and i went for a walk to the supermarket.

so until tomorrow be healthy and cook don't dial :-) ♥

Day 6 Thursday 1st April 2010

Happy April Fools everyone!!

last nights dinner was spaghetti bol - very yummy, will be getting that one again.

Ok today's menu:
Breakfast: fruit and bran cereal with skim milk and baked beans on 1 piece of grain toast.
Morning Tea: Fruit cup - pear.
Lunch: veggie burger with sliced tomato with sweet chilli sauce on a sour dough roll (finally a hamburger) and an orange.
Afternoon Tea: Greek style Vanilla yoghurt and a fruit and nut bar.
Additional snacks: Mediterranean vegetable and meatball pasta.

Dinner tonight will be sausages with onion gravy and veggies.

I am shocked at how well i am doing, i have not had one single craving to go to the cupboards nor do i want to.

I went shopping just before to get some Easter eggs for my daughters and you know i didn't even want to buy them not because i thing i will eat them but because it makes me sick to think of that dark sickning chocolate, I'll admit i will be having one little egg on Easter Sunday but that's it, and i only got a small amount for my girls as there foods need to be cut down also, their not big girls but it wouldn't hurt them to lose a few cms. :-) and changing our diets is going to be a lot better for all of us, teaching them this now will pay off in the future and I'm hopeful i can start my generation off on a healthy food for my grandchildren and their grandchildren.

calorieking Website.....

i can now see what i am consuming and because of this i can enjoy Easter Sunday with my family, knowing what i am going to consume for the day i can work out what im aloud to eat with out stuffing up my lite n easy. I am going to try out all 4 menu's A B C & D and then by that time my body should be ready to only eat the amount i should, am am confident i am ready now but i really don't want to risk it and fall apart, so 4-6 weeks time i will be saying goodbye to lite n easy and going on my own merry way.

I'm going to put up the next couple of days menu's so i can enjoy my weekend.

Happy Easter Everyone and remember eggs in moderation :-)

Lunch: Dijon chicken and pasta salad and a fruit salad.
Afternoon tea: vegetable frittata and a muesli cookie.
Additional snack: apricot pudding and roasted chick peas.

So my dinner yesterday was roast chicken...didn't think much of it so i don't think i will order that one again.

tonight's dinner still unsure as there are still 5 to choose

Well yesterday was interesting, Brad the three girls and myself took ourselfs off for a power walk, which was great i didnt get a sore back and my legs where only hurting a little bit, that was about 11.30am then i had stupid thoughts after lunch around 2pm and said to Rhiannon to go get her music box and a cd and meet me out side with her sisters, looked up on the internet for some warm up exercises (which i will put up on here) and went outside and did them, then once we were all warmed up we did some star jumps and running on the spot and steps, i felt fine until i got up this
sore legs sore neck and my mussels in my stomach feel it too. but over all about 15-20mins of exercise plus our 20 mins walk. and i feel pretty good.

My Motivation

I was asked today what my motivations are for now wanting to lose the weight!!

Well I have many reasons, some are personal and some are just your normal reasons, like to live longer and just to be simply healthy.

So with all my strengths I’m going to share with you why I am doing this and explain on the way how some things came to a point of no return, and how some are small things that I just brush away everyday and some that are deep scars that will stay forever or as long as I am “FAT”.

This is harder than it looks, and its not going to be an easy task to write down and share all of this with you, but I feel if I do this I will empower myself more to push along and succeed in my weight battle.

People: whether its family, friends or complete strangers most would look at me and say yep she could eat a horse!! (And it shows) But in Hines sight that isn’t true, yes I am big and yes I love my food, but it wasn’t the quantity I was consuming it was the quality, high carb foods, fatty oily foods, take away, it was all to much and the weight packed on.

So here is the start of my life just to get you in my mind.

I admit I was never a “skinny” kid, chubby from birth and pudgy as a kid and it went on, when I was 12 my Granny watched my diet very carefully and I even got down to a size 10 dress. I was rewarded with a beautiful flower dress that I loved and kept wearing until I was 14, and that’s when the weight started to pile back on, I ended up putting on 30kgs in a short time frame of 6 months, so from then until I was 19 I just kept putting it on slowly, until I feel pregnant with Rhiannon, my weight then stayed the same until I gave birth and I was actually starting to lose it, been a first time mum and all, I was running around like a mad woman, then 3 months later I find out im pregnant again this time with twins, and again the weight starting getting put back on and again didn’t stop.

So here I am today fed up with all the yoyo diets and crap that hasn’t worked, I now start lite n easy.

Now that I have basically placed your mind in a moment of my life you may now understand my next battle of explaining my motives to lose the “FAT”…….

Motivation one: the big one

(This is what pushed me to the point of doing this, mind you for the past year I have dealt with this by eating, yes I know it sounds stupid but I felt like the problem would go away if I ate, obviously it didn’t!!)

So back to my motivations: Children telling my girls that their mummy is fat!!! It may sound like something I should have brushed off but it got to me that bad that I stopped going to the school and even now if something needs to be done at school Bradly goes up for me.

Now these are just going to be random as I think of them… Been able to put socks on with out asking Brad or one of the girls to do it for me, I noticed the other day that I have no full body shots of myself, all photos are chest up shots, so that was another motivation, wanting to play sports with my girls, (under 18’s close your eyes) a better sex life in the bedroom, going to the movies and been able to sit comfortably in a seat, not having to step sideways into a shower or a door way, to walk into a shop and not having to go straight to the + sizes, people not yelling out oh look at the elephant, a certain person asking if my clothes came from tent city!!!!!! To see my feet lol, and to have a waist so I know where my boobs and stomach are!!.

Well you have just read what I am afraid to say out loud.♥♥♥

Day 2 - Sunday 28th March 2010

Well i feel pretty awesome, i had a 44th and 18th birthday party last night, and i now know why people say they put on weight just from the smell :-) but i was so proud of myself even thou the food looked deli sh and smelled wonderful i was not tempted at all to have any, even thou Rhiannon kept forgetting and asking me if i would like

Last nights tea i had the sweet and sour chicken, which was really yummy and surprisingly filling.

Breakfast: two slices of fruit and muesli toast with spread and a vanilla yogurt.
Morning tea: a tub of two fruits.

Day 1 - Saturday 27th March 2010

Hello and Welcome,

Most of you that will start to read my blog and hopefully follow it will no what I am in barking on….for those who don't I have started Lite n Easy.

A sure fire way (I'm hoping to lose the weight). There's no denying it I am over weight, experts would say morbidly obese. So I have taken it upon myself with the help, love and support of my family and friends to start Lite n Easy, and a new way of life.

So today 27/3/2010 I have started my journey to a healthier and hopefully in some time to come a skinner Shannon. So don’t get me wrong I know this isn’t going to be easy,

Just because im eating better food and much less of it, the weight isn’t just going to fall off there is exercise to do and the mental side of it too, believing that I can do it!!

I know there will be times where I want to scream and hurt someone, but I need to draw from the inspiration inside and remember why it is I am doing this. So day 1...... The food: Breakfast: Vanilla crunch cereal with ½ cup of skim milk and a cheese and tomato toasted multigrain sandwich. Morning Snack: Orange Lunch: Seasoned chicken tender and chopped salad with garlic and lemon vinaigrette and a fruit salad. Afternoon snack: rice crackers with salsa dip and a raspberry and apple crumble. Additional Snack (if needed) ham, tomato and cheese omelette and pickelets with strawberry jam. Also 1.5 cups of skim milk a day, so I had milk for breakfast so I still need to have 1 cup of milk some time today, also my 6-8 glasses of water, which im mixing up with lemon juice and lime juice and of course just your plain H2O, variety is a spice of life after all. :-)

My exercise plan will come later as the food starts to take over my body I will get more energy and be able to do more, but I do plan to walk at least 3 times a week and go swimming when ever I can, so as the weeks go by im hoping I feel more like doing it and not just sit on my behind and do nothing.

So until tomorrow keep healthy and please by all means pass this along to your friends and don’t for get to check back regularly for more updates and photos and if im game my stats!!
