Weigh in Wednesday Take Two!

I was at my baby niece's christening on the weekend and I saw some photos of myself and I look HUGE. I hate getting my photo taken for this reason but have decided that it is time to stop hiding and start doing something about it.

So today is definately the day to get back on the wagon. I have not weighed myself this morning because I don't want to be disappointed as by the way my clothes feel I have put on some weight. So I have started Day 1 of protein only. I know a lot of you think this is an unhealthy way to do it but it works for me. My body is not made to process carbs and I find that doing protein only helps get rid of my cravings for everything that is bad for you.

Believe me I suffer for it. I started this morning and I already have a ripper of a headache coming hense why I chose today a Public Holiday as my start day this way I can take a nap or zone out rather than trying to concentrate at work.

I also decided to start the Couch to 5km challenge. I have read a lot about it through other peoples blogs and Melissa my cousin has started the challenge so I decided I would also give it a go. Day 1 Week 1 has been completed. Yay for me!!! I tell you what though it was hard, in my last running interval I was so ready to stop but I didnt I pushed through the pain and completed the first day.

I am going to take it one day at a time because 365 days and 30 kilograms is too big for me to get my head around. I am just going to make each decision day by day and everything WILL come together.

Stay Tuned as I promise this is the start.


  1. Go you!! Well done getting back on the wagon. I think weight loss is such a personal thing and not at all one size fits all. You do what works for you. I know for me it's all about working out the emotional side of things more than the diet. I think it's awesome your doing what works for you! Looking forward to hearing more good stuff Trina x Caz

  2. Yay you. Count me in. Expect a text onslaught. It's time we support each other to do this, rather than leading each other astray. Here we go. Team effort.
