  • Had a good streak for the last few weeks. Let's keep it tight for the rest of the week, so I get that magic feeling again when looking at the scales on Sunday!
  • I'm on a roll at the moment. Lots of exercise, a new gym pass and the scales are moving - let's keep that going!
  • I just want to feel hot. No longer young, so trim is my new hot. Don’t mind saggy boobs and a few wrinkles, but nothing matches the confidence and pride that come from knowing I’m taking care of my body.
  • Me:5 LNS:1 Dagnabit - last night I came home after dinner with a friend and plain forgot that I wasn't supposed to eat the left-over pizza! Back on track today. :D
  • This sounds like my challenge to a tee! LNs = any food after dinner at home including wine. Will go for herbal tea instead Monday to Friday. Weekend is fine for a glass of wine, but still no snacks when I’m home. So far me:1 LNS:0
  • Making the dinner plan for the week on Saturday & shopping for it. It's so much easier to come home from work, pick a dish and know I have all I need, than figuring out each day how to turn what's in the fridge into any kind of coherent meal, or constantly go shopping after work because you're always missing something. I…
  • Started 16/8 a few days ago just by skipping breakfast and so far it seems to work suprisingly well. I am a bit foggy in the morning, but not nearly as hungry as expected. My main binge times are morning (work stress) and evenings (letting go), so it might be a good fit for me to avoid food during these times altogether. I…
  • Challenge Start Weight: 67 Challenge Goal: 57 Week 6: 60 Week 7: 61 A positive thought for the week: This bad streak cannot go on forever. As of Monday I have started logging consistently again. Healthy snack or meal: microwave popcorn without the butter Best workout this week: commuting on the bike again. Comments: So ...…
  • Challenge Start Weight: Challenge Goal: 57kg Week 1: Week 2: Week 3: Week 4: Week 5: Week 6: Week 7: 60kg A positive thought for the week: No great success, but I am counting again. Also, no weight gain. Healthy snack or meal: lunch salads, what's new? :-) Best workout this week: didn't exercise much - I think there was a…
  • Week 6: 60.4kg Positive thought: no surprise on the scales, but I'm back home now, so back to a regular life style. Healthy snack: still loving my salad with egg for lunch Best workout: 6km run - my return to running after injury. Also back to my abs routine. Comments: missed lat week because I was in the air (as in:…
  • Yes, I also find planning very useful and log consistently. Only, sometimes it's not enough. :-) I'm actually considering online counselling. I need to learn a different way of dealing with negative emotions. I've never done this, but I would like to make a break - the prospect of fighting myself for the rest of my life to…
  • Thanks Leonadixon & Smithonian! I appreciate your comments. There are a few interesting things about intermittent fasting and emotional eating out on the interwebs. I guess it makes sense to have no-food times in the day and simply make it a no-go area. Can I ask you how do handle dinner invitations, and social situations…
  • Challenge Start Weight: 67kg January 2018 Challenge Goal: 57kg Week 1: Week 2: Week 3: 60kg (lowest recorded on Saturday was 57.8kg) A positive thought for the week: I saw the magic number 57 on the scales! Healthy snack or meal: alpro soy yoghurt with oats and chia seeds for breakfast. Surprisingly nice! Best workout this…
  • I can now wrap my legs around each other when sitting. Not just cross them: actually wrap my foot around my calves with crossed legs. Sure, it looks weird, but somehow there's such joy in this - here's to slim thighs! :-)
  • Challenge Start Weight: 67 Challenge Goal: 57 Week 1: 58.5 Week 2: 58.5 A positive thought for the week: I managed to reign it in towards the weekend. Healthy snack or meal: still eating those salads with egg & avocado for lunch & loving it. Best workout this week: 10km run Comments: Still climbing out of that muesli bowl.…
  • Challenge Start Weight: 67 Challenge Goal: 57 Week 1: 60 (lowest weight on Saturday at 58kg) A positive thought for the week: I didn't overeat on every day. Healthy snack or meal: blackberries fresh from the hedge Best workout this week: 10km It's been a rough week emotionally. Hormones are probably not helping, but I am…
  • After losing track while staying at my parents for two months (kinda what I expected), I am now back on track. Last weekend I was traveling with a friend and couldn't quite control what I ate - and again, I came back to counting afterwards. I also started a morning routine with an abs workout. Stopped for a few days for…
  • Starting weight: 67 (January 2018) Challenge Start Weight: 60 Challenge Goal: 57 A positive thought for the week: After dropping the ball while staying with my parents (as was to be expected), I have been back at it for 3 weeks now. That's new. Healthy snack or meal: Always eating salad with 2 boiled eggs for lunch these…
  • Weigh-in #2 Challenge Start Weight: 58.9 Challenge Goal Weight: 57 Weigh-in #1: 58.9 Weigh-in #2: 58.9 A positive thought I had this week was: Three days in a row back to my weightloss regime and it's going okay so far. Had a bratwurst snack today and made up for it with salads for lunch and dinner like a pro. A healthy…
  • Weigh-in #1 Challenge Start Weight: 59 Challenge Goal Weight: 57 Weigh-in #1: 59 A positive thought I had this week was: Good to be back after the holidays! A healthy snack/meal I chose this week was: carrots - what's new? My most effective workout this week was: Shorter run after doing in my Achilles during the holidays.…

  • I think there are some studies that show the psychology attached to breakfast skipping is what can make you put on weight because at lunch time time you might eat more since you were so virtuous in the morning and by noon youre really a bit hungry. Other than that i don't think it's bad.
  • Its basically a diet without alcohol, gluten, processed sugar, soy, dairy other than yoghurt, and red meats. Depending on how strict you want to be its quite achievable. I struggled with the gluten and the dairy, but if you're not wedded to cheese sandwiches its not too bad. The easiest was surprisingly alcohol. Once i…
  • At first there was the joy of fitting into all my old clothes again without question. Now i have officially started buying smaller clothes because my bras and pants are all too loose. Yay!

  • Sitting on a hard chair and feeling my pelvis bones on the seat! Crazy!

  • 1200 a day in net calories, but I'm so close to goal weight that it seems to take forever. I try to exercise 3-4 days a week, so i have a bit of wriggle room in terms of eating. At 1200cals it can be tricky not to get a bit grumpy sometimes. at this point it takes me two weeks of total discipline in order to lose a single…
