well done @PinkPink that's a great lose :-)
You'll know when you're ready and I find, when I start something like this, day one is the most dreaded. Motivation is hard to find, I have to force myself headfirst into the zone. But once you find your mojo it's addictive I think!
Good luck. I'll be around for the next couple of months doing this thing (hopefully!) and you have the support here when you're ready
Catzilla, I'm losing 5kgs of weight that I already lost at the end of last year. The right mind frame is essential. Good luck getting your mojo back
You can't get back something you never had in the first place. :-p
Sending mojo vibes to those who need it!
Well I've just been to the doctor and got weighed - 79kg. Less than I was expecting and that's probably just because I've been so sick all week I've not been eating much. But hey I'll take it! Haha. Hoping antibiotics and a weekend on the couch watching movies will have me back and ready to get started on Monday. I am SO KEEN! If I could get to 70kg by the start of summer I'd be happy with that. Think I'll keep that as my mini goal
Trying to start fresh today again after a pretty heavy food day yesterday.
I'm liking following simply filling from weight watchers. Here's the info for you if you're interested http://www.weightwatchers.com/util/a...1&art_id=65271
I started today with oat porridge, banana, lite soy milk latte, and some avocado which is part of my treats allowance.
Well, last night was a bust and we ended up having takeaway. It was revolting so it will be much easier to fight the urge next time. Brekkie this morning was one piece of spelt megagrain bread with two slices of cheese and a small plate of chopped fruit (banana, kiwi, strawberries, blueberries). For lunch I've made up a salad of roasted root vegetables (carrot, swede, turnip, parsnip, sweet potato, beetroot) with red and black quinoa, fresh spinach leaves, walnuts, some goat's cheese and a drizzle of hazelnut oil.
Thanks so much for the 30 days of yoga idea! I did the complete beginner one yesterday to refresh my memory as it's been awhile so I've gone to a regular yoga class and did the day 1 video this morning. My back has been wound up pretty tight and I actually had physio on it last week but the two sessions of yoga are keeping it loose. It makes me realise how slack I've been in terms of looking after myself.

Had porridge this morning, with skim milk, and a sprinkle of brown sugar, but then I wrecked it with a few chocolate Freddo heads and peanut butter Tim Tams. Breakfast usually isn't too bad for me, but it all falls apart after that.
@Catzilla, I find if I have sugar at breakfast, even if it's a tiny amount, my day goes downhill from there. Because I had fruit for breakfast this morning, all I feel like now is a choc-chip cookie with a cuppa. It's like it sets my tastebuds to crave more sweetness. When pregnant with GD I replaced the sprinkle of brown sugar on my oats with cinnamon instead. Might be worth a try to see if it makes a difference? Cinnamon actually stabilises blood sugar so you can flatten out the high and subsequent plummet cycle. Something to think about anyway...
It's so hard starting out. I have very little discipline so it will be interesting to see how this goes for me over the month (and more). I think most important is not to beat yourself up when you slip. Just start over and keep trying to do your best.
