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 :-) ♥
