    I think I've lost my appetite. I'm really surprised, actually, that I haven't had any cravings for junk food or alcohol either! I guess my body is becoming accustomed to healthy food? Oh well, I'm not complaining!

    The amount of food I'm eating has gone down as my appetite strangely diminishes.

    Today so far I have not eaten much- still don't know what I'm making for dinner, either.

    Breakfast- nothing. I was hit from behind while sitting stationary at a boomgate waiting for a train to pass this morning after taking DS to school, so the stress of having to deal with that zapped what little appetite I had.

    Lunch- leftover soup from last night's dinner.

    oh and I shared a bottle of Big M chocolate and hazelnut milk with DH- new flavour, so yummy!

    Back later to hopefully update with a nice dinner.

    Update, dinner: fish, vegies and small serve mash potato.

    Week 2, day 7

    Breakfast- bowl Uncle Toby's Plus cereal (I'm eating the plus Calcium one at the moment, I don't eat nearly enough calcium in my diet) with light milk

    mid-morning- apple, kiwi fruit

    Lunch- no actual lunch today, just a can 500ml can of sugarfree 'V'

    arvo snack- 4 belvita biscuits

    Dinner- chicken breast topped with salsa and a little cheese/light sourcream served with salad and a handful of oven baked french fries. And yes, it tasted as good as it sounds!

    Exercise today was 40 minute brisk walk.

    Start of week 3 tomorrow, I can't believe that I've stuck with it and am actually loving it! I was thinking today that I'd be a little lost without this thread, it keeps me on track and motivates me I don't want it to end after 8 weeks, it seems a little scary to be doing it on my own (even though technically I really am, this thread.blog just allows me to feel....not so alone.) I think I will keep these entries up for 12 weeks. Even if nobody even reads it lol, I find it therapeutic. We'll see.

    Today I tried on a pair of jeans I'd love to fit into. They are hanging in my wardrobe with the store tags still attached I have named them my "indicator" jeans, lol- because I will start using them as an indicator as to how much weight I'm losing; when I can do them up I'll be stoked!

    "Oh my god, it f##..ing works!!!!"

    ^This is what I could heard be exclaiming this morning when I weighed myself, lol.. 3 kg's down

    This has motivated me so so much- seeing results like this makes me feel like I'm walking on air, I am so proud of myself! Finally, after years of my weight yo-yoing I've figured it out- just make changes! I can still have my fave foods, I just need to tweak them a little. The rules to healthy eating have sunk in and I feel like I can reach any goal I set for myself now. I want to lose another 10 kg's. I know I can do it.

    Week 3, day 1

    breakfast- none, had to rush out for an appointment so just grabbed a 500ml can of sugarfree V energy drink- I know it's nothing compared to a balanced meal but it fills me up for a couple of hours when I'm flat out.

    Lunch- vegemite sandwich (wholemeal bread)


    Dinner- grilled chicken breast fillet in a wholemel pita wrap with salsa, cottage cheese amd lettuce.


    Snack- a couple of Belvita bix

    40 min brisk walk

    You should be so proud of yourself. Well done!

    im so very pleased to be pregnant again- but I feel like I was doing well with weight loss for the first time in ages, so sad about stopping that. Still walking an hour every night I can. And still following all the weight loss stories here.
