    I feel like I only have to look at a cheeseburger and I gain a kilo
    The first 3 days of last week were excellent- my food was perfect and I was walking for an hour every day. I felt great, light and motivated. Then I got lazy, missed a couple of days of walking and thought, meh, I'll start again after the weekend.. that's my downfall. Straight away I got fat and blaoted (it felt like it, anyway) and the scales are going up 2-3 kilos one day, down 1 the next- I have no idea where I'm at to be honest. I really, reallllly need a proper digital scale, I keep forgetting to buy one! I'm sure it will be more accurate than what I have now.
    On the positive side, I know that if I eat "normally" or induge a little I bloat really easily and the scales show a higher weight for a day or two, but then when I get ack on track my weight almost instantly goes down.. maybe I just retain when I eat carbs? Which I why I say I only have to look at junk food to get fat
    I'm still weighing roughly 3 kilos less than I did before this challenge, so it's not a total loss. I also bought a new supply of shakes to get me back on the wagon.
    Having said all that, I am my own worst critic and I tend to sook and get cross at myself when I have a small blow out, so I need to try and remain postive- I magnify every mistake and it's just me being negative- no, I haven't been perfect but oh well. Plus I'm sick! I have a terrible flu and it's got me down in the dumps.
    Today I've had- an egg and bacon roll from Subway (naughty!) and almost 2 litres of Lipton ice tea (light, only 2 cals per serve) because I need to keep my fluids up and just feel so thirsty. Dinner will be green soup.

    This sunday is DD's first birthday and we're having a party so I know that'll be a write off for me food wise- But I aim to stay on track for the other 6 days, got my shakes and lots of healthy snacks

    Thanks for reading if you got this far!

    Well done everyone, you all put me to shame!

    Oh Marigold, sorry to hear you have the flu... I hope you are back to feeling well before your DD's birthday on Sunday. You're 3 kgs down this challenge- that is something to be proud of. My DD is turning 1 year old in Saturday.

    What is everyone having for breakfast? I have been having scrambled eggs every day, but I am getting bored, I need some inspiration.

    Hi TeBe, I have scrambled eggs too and put lemon zest, chopped mint, cumin seeds and chopped coriander on top, and sometimes some serena tuna as well. Yum. As an alternative, I have yoghurt with fresh passionfruit or a chopped up mandarin and LSA or fibre sprinkled on top. Any one else got some ideas??

    Well done everyone on the losses and maintaining weight.

    I had a shocking weekend. I just wanted to eat and eat (which is what i did) and i was craving sugar. Really wanted to go buy some icecream yesterday but thankfully i resisted that but ate a whole packet of anzac biscuits instead. I did go for a walk yesterday too. I still can't stop eating today. I feel so bloated and frumpy.

    I was scared to weigh in this morning and rightfully so. I gained a kilo so i was 91.6kg. So disappointing. I think af is on her way and i'm hoping that is the reason for the craziness. Will try really hard to get back on the wagon tomorrow. :-(

    Keep up the good work everyone. Only 2wks left. Although i'm going to keep going as i want to lose as much as i can until i get pregnant. Is anyone else going to continue?

    Sorry for the long post. Have a good night.

    Only 2 weeks left, wow that has gone so fast. I would love to be at 58kg in the next 2 weeks but I don't think I can lose 1.8kg that fast. 58kg is my mini goal, then I am going to continue on until I get to 55kg.

    Marigold - it sounds like maybe you do retain a bit of water or something when you eat carby foods? I'm a bit the same - if I eat anything too carb heavy or salty my weight goes up very quickly, but then a couple of days of eating well again and it goes back down. You're doing really well - keep at it!!

    LittleChimp - I know that feeling all too well, sometimes I am just a bottomless pit. I'm going to try and keep going with the weightloss - still have around 3 very stubborn kg's to go.

    I struggle to get a good breakfast in. I'm finding by the time I feed/ change/ dress both kids and have a shower etc it's time to get out the door and I often forget about breaky. For a quick option I just have a protein shake, if I have a bit more time I'll make a smoothie with milk, banana, chia seeds, frozen berries & yoghurt.

    I'm on holidays at the moment so I don't have a scale but I'm sure I've gained weight because I've had a shocking week of eating lots of junk food :/
