I'm on the weight loss wagon again...

I joined weigh-less in March this year with 7,2kg to goal.

I lost the first 4,6 slowly but steadily and then I hit a plateau. Then it was up 0.2, down 0.2, then the same, down 0.4 up 0.8. That type of thing.

This has been going on for about 6 - 8 weeks now and today when I weighed in, up 0.4. Now I have 3.2 to go before I reach goal.

I've been trying to think about why I'm battling these last few kilos. People say it's because I'm already nearly there and I don't have far to go so these last few will take some time.

I think it's because I look good in my jeans again if i say so myself and my clothes all fit comfortably.

But I need to get my almost-skinny ass in gear and up the ante.

Today I decided to start keeping a food diary. It is remarkable how just writing something down makes you think before you eat it. It's almost like a time log - I remember years ago filling in my first one before a time management course. The first few days you just carry on as normal but on day 3, suddenly you start auto-correcting.

Do I really want to waste time on the internet because I'll have to write that down? (thank goodness that was in the pre-blog days)

I really hope the food diary works because I need to get to goal before bikini season. Not that you'll ever catch me dead in one (I'm just not the exhibitionist type) but I'd like to know I could if I wanted to.

Verdict - Day 1. No cheats except for 2 wine gums.

  1. Congrats on making so much progress towards your goal. I have a feeling you'll be trying on bikinis in no time--even if you don't ever wear them to the beach.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. :)
