OK cool, week 6!
I don't think that I've lost any weight this week. Which sucks, because for 95% of the time I've done the right thing. I didn't get out for my usual walks for various reasons but plan on going today, so that could have made a difference. I will weigh in on Monday and see how I go. Maybe just a bit of plateau?
I have a party on Saturday nght and plan on having maybe a couple of drinks, so that might stuff me up for the rest of the week. Come Monday I'm going to go harder than ever with my eating/exercise and portion control. I tend to to do fantastically during the day and my breakfast and lunches and snacks are always healthy and low in fat/sugar etc... dinners I try to do the same, but I'm not as strict... like lst night, in theory what I had sounded good, but I added salt and butter to the corn cob and covered it all in gravy, which can't have been super healthy. Also by dinner time I'm usually pretty starving and while I'm certainly not over eating, I'm having "normal" sized portion and eating until I'm full, when, if I want to lose weight I should be serving myself slightly less and stop eating when I'm just comfortable, not full but not hungry. So I have some small adjustments to make. I think this is what has made me a bit despondent this week, and why I thought screw it, I'm having take away (the kebab 2 nights ago), because I was down at not having lost anything noticeable on the scales. I was mad at myself and a felt I'd been trying so hard for nothing.

Thank you for counting the weeks, I had no idea where we were up to! Scary that its not long to go though.
I get what you mean about feeling a bit down, I've gone hard this week and the scales don't show it. However, I do feel a lot better, less stressed and my tummy feels flatter. The scales aren't the only way to measure success.

Two words: Damage Control. That's what I must do this week. Had a BBQ last night and a few drinks and just switched off today as well. Nothing very bad or rubbishy, just not good weightloss food.
This week I'm getting back on track- I don't like straying from this diet plan, I don't feel good if I fall off the wagon. I've become accustomed to this new way of eating, living and exercising and I like it.
With Easter coming up, I'm no doubt going to have a couple of bad days but that's life. I'm going to mum's for Easter dinner and plan on enjoying it without going nuts.

Did you see the little wagon chugging along the road, empty? I was on it, but took a bad fall yesterday Yep.... very off the wagon.
My breakfasts, lunches and snacks have all been pretty good, except today- I had Macca's. DS has finished school for the term and we were shopping and he wanted it, I even tried to fill up with a can of sugarfree Red Bull beforehand so I wouldn't be tempted- but I was starving and caved.
Last night I had a cherry ripe icecream (O.M.G!) after dinner.
Back on track Monday
Right, I have to focus on the fact that I've lost 6 kilos so far

Did you catch that wagon? Maybe after a little detour to Chocolate Town? I think lapses are fine, as long as you do dust yourself off and keep going.

I seriously need to reboot and start over. It's like, I get a taste for the dark side and I go weak. Gah. In the last fortnight I've had booze, burgers, chocolate and yes, sugary soft drinks. And way too much of it all.
Just going to write off the whole last week as a massive fail. Friggen stupid Easter! Why did we have to start this bootcamp thing in the month of Easter?
I am not only needing to grab the bull by the horns and get my chubby butt back on that wagon, but also probably detox. No more sh!t. Back on track- back to healthy, small dinners, no vino. No junk.
i will officially make tomorrow my new start day and see where I'm at weightwise next Wednesday. I'm definitely not through with losing weight when this Bootcamp officially ends on here, I'm ploughing on, I'm not even half way there yet. I need another 8 weeks!!!

Ok, here we go. Today:
Breakfast and lunch were kind of combined as I wasn't hungry early on and just shared food with DD- a little bit of her banana and a small bowl of baked beans.
Dinner: sweet chili and mayo grilled chicken & lettuce wrap.
Better. I'll get there.

OK, back on the straight and narrow.
Weighed myself this morning and somehow I'm the lowest I have been since starting this. I didn't think I had lost anything this past week, but I have, another kilo down. Maybe I've been overreacting about my blowouts? Yes, I went "normal" for a few days, but still kept most of meals healthy, I wasn't eating Easter dinner with all the trimmings everyday lol and have gone pretty easy on the chocolates as well, only having ate a couple of choc eggs- no big bunnies!
Well,I'm fully back on track now after my little tanty
Feeling positive again which is great.
