Wednesday weigh-in: 3rd April

I have some good news to share today – hooray! And some not-great news, but definitely better-than-it-was news.

Here’s how my week went:

Weight:

Last week I weighed in at 86.8kg, this week I’m 85.8 – an even 1kg loss for the week. It could have been better, I didn’t have a great week food wise (will get into that soon), but it’s better than it has been.

I’m super happy with that result.

Binge eating

You guys, I was on a 9 DAY (!!!) streak, and then I broke it. I don’t think I binged in the traditional sense, it wasn’t a robotic “shove as much food in my mouth as I can” phase. The problem was I had enough bad food grazed over the course of the day that I decided I just wasn’t comfortable considering it a “successful” day. I didn’t want to reward myself for that behaviour. [...]  read more

Wednesday weigh-in – 27th March

It’s time for some accountability. Every Wednesday I’m going to try to do a quick blog post with an update on the increase or decrease of weight, and most importantly, how the binge eating is going. It’s a “weigh in” in the sense of weighing in on how things are going; not so much the weight being the most important thing (it’s not). And hey, alliteration is cool right?

As I confessed recently on my Facebook page I recently relapsed with my binge eating. It was creeping on me since before Christmas, and after another reality check this year I was back to old ways. [...]  read more

2017 vs 2018 – 15kg down: a photo comparison

As I write this post I’m sipping on wine, and reminding myself why I’m posting these photos. I’m almost chanting it to myself.

It’s all part of the journey. You’re just writing about the journey. It’s all part of the journey.

Thing is, it’s bloody hard to post this. I’m not proud of the before photo, or the after photo. I’m not where I want to be. But I’m proud of the difference.

Finding my photos

I was going through photos the other night, trying to put together a photo album of my son’s first 12 months on earth when I stumbled upon my before photos. I had taken them and promptly forgotten about them. [...]  read more

October update of the 52 list

52 in 52 for 2016
52 in 52 for 2016

Right now I should be working on wedding stuff (less than 2 weeks to go – eek!) but honestly, I’m a little over thinking about it. I’m super excited, but I truly can’t wait until the discussion on the weekend is “what do we feel like doing” as opposed to “what item on the to do list shall we tackle today?”. This morning we went and checked out the venue and finalised all the little minor details, so I’ve really only got a bit more admin’ish stuff to do, pick up my dress, and then we’re onto the final week beauty regime! As I write this the boy is out in the yard knocking up another cool piece of furniture for the wedding, I truly have been impressed by his talents. [...]  read more

52 in 52: 12 week challenge results

This is the hardest post I think I will ever have to hit “Publish” on. In posting these photos, I’m also achieving one of my other goals “Do something that scares me”. Let’s be honest, sharing these photos scares the absolute s**t out of me.

I hate photos at the best of time, let alone sharing something so revealing. Yet I wanted to have complete transparency and honesty in the results of the 12 week challenge, and I think these photos and the measurements are the most brutal reality there is. [...]  read more
