I'm a wife and a mother of 4. I began my 'journey' at 149+ kilos. 8 weeks ago i finally broke the magical barrier of 130 that had confounded me for so long and weighed in at 129.2. Stupid me though, i self sabotaged again and let family issues close me off to the world and i am now 134.6 again and rareing to do anything it takes to get back into new territory.

Charting new territory.

I have finally done it. Left the 35's behind, passed by the 34's and hit the 33's.
It has only taken 5 months.
I have also hit 15kgs lost and they even asked me to submit a motivational story....though i'm not going to as i don't feel quite successful yet.
The best thing........It's TTOTM so this is on top of any bloat, hopefully. Though it is only the first day so that may still be coming.
But that also means that my 2 lindt bunnies wont be eaten in vain No snacking on choccie for easter and then fighting the pms choccie cravings, i can combine the two.
I'm feeling bloody terrific.

Off to steam clean the floor now.
Happy Easter my fellow members

Weigh in day tomorrow

I am sooooo nervous and want to be supergood today.I don't think i have had 2 losses in a row for such a long time now.
I have some steamcleaning to do so i am not going to have much time to eat so for when i do i'll need to find something a little more filling cal wise but low on the sodium.
I have found the reduced fat feta cheese lately but that can be a little high on the sodium side, but i crumble it up to have it over salads and it is very yummy.
Since i have been trying low sodium i am finding my fat and carb intake is fairly low but i am getting good protein. Maybe this has something to do with why my arms and legs felt weak at Mondays body combat class. I thought i was tired but now i realise it was weakness. That could've been from the heat....37ish or the fact i drank 2 glasses of milk during the day and i find milk doesn't normally sit well with me. (Plus it wasn't skim) The more water i poured in the iller i felt.
There was no combat last week due to labor day and none next week due to easter. i tell you, last week i was having withdrawls...everytime i heard a song played during class all i could think of was the movements that needed to be done. I am expecting the same this week.

It has still been a low exercise week but i will be changing that next week. I just wanted to see what the maths could do and now i hope to incorperate the exercise and put on like i have done in the past.

Sorry for the ramble.
I'm off now

Evil sodium.

Background info I have been struggling mentally. After having great cal weeks for the last 2-3 weeks i have had no losses. 2 gains though and i was starting this week aroung 137-138

So after pm'ing my trusty guru everyday this week and basically annoying the hell out of her while she is supposed to be working we finally come up with the problem being fluid and too much sodium.
I took a fluid tablet on Wednesday and woke up 135.8. But then i worried that i had dehydrated myself and therefore it wasn't a True result. So yesterday i cut my sodium down to 1500mg ( my target is 2200) and drank 6 glasses of H2O to make sure i could replace any extra fluid i may have lost and this morning, my weigh in day..........................135.3

I'm not partying to hardy though as i want to see it keep going down.If it doesn't then i am going to have to be resigned to the fact that i am in true plateau mode and wait for my body to stop being a and give up some fat!!!

I haven't exercised much this week as i am trying to concentrate on the numbers. Being low sodium has meant lots of fresh fruit and veg and some steamed chicken and fish and unfortunately yesterdays cals only added up to 950ish. A far cry for the 1500cals i am trying and the 1950 that CK is recommending.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that i have a good result next week as well.

Happy weekend peoples
