I last weighed myself on Monday, I was 56.2kg. I try to only weigh myself once a week.
I find that the numbers can go up and down slightly over the week so I try not to weigh myself every day as it can be a bit misleading.
My aim for the week is to stick to my low carb eating plan (less than 20g carbs per day) and then weigh myself at the end of the week.

Weigh yourself at the same time. You generally weigh a lot less in the mornings than other times of the day.
Weigh once a week as weight can fluctuate according to fluids etc. I have often been 1kg lighter day before weigh in, so frustrating.
It's really hard to not obsess about the scales, but I would recommend you get someone to do your measurements as well. Sometimes the scales don't budge, but the cm do.
I'm on my last 4 weeks of Michelle bridges, so will join this challenge for a kick in the butt I need to stay motivated.

Keep a glass on the kitchen sink and drink water every time you're at the sink.

I am finding if I have a water bottle nearby, I tend to drink more - not often but I drink water in big "chunks", LOL... I had 5 400ml drink bottles yesterday and 3 herbal tea!
Another alternative is to maybe make up some lemon or strawberry water and put in fridge... The T2 shop sells an awesome jug where you can chop up the fruit and put in like a tube/filter and then fill with water - next time I'm at Westfield I might get one.

I need to up my water intake as well. I'm good when I'm at work and refill my water bottle all day long, but at home not so much.
Question.... Does drinking water really aid weightloss? If two people (hypothetically) were exactly the same weight, ate the same for an entire week etc... but one didn't drink water, would there be a difference? I know that water helps fill you up and that thirst can often be mistaken for hunger, but does drinking it actually make you lose weight?

Is it too late for me to join??
I had a bit of a shock - i never weigh myself as i have never had too (high metabolism usually) - but i found my clothes feeling tight - got on scales and Im at 68!! I have never been above 55 EVER (except when pregnant) so that was a huge shock for me.
My problem is i have ZERO idea about whats good / bad food etc as i have never watched what i eat.
I THINK one of my main bad habits is wine / beer - i assume that is uber fattening? SO my goals:
Cut back on booze - stock up with soda water and fresh lime / mint so i can drink that instead (and obvs water)
Try to cut back to 2 coffees a day and when i have them use skim milk and one sugar instead of 2. (substitue with herbal teas).
Wholemeal bread and pasta instead of white (no way will i be able to cut them completely).
Clean cooking (trying not to use packet mixes)
Healthy snacks?? HELP??? Im thinking veggie sticks / fruit / avo on rye crackers / almonds??? / eggs.
Walk at least 3 x a day (realistically this will be all i can do due to hubbys work schedule and having little girls that cant keep up yet).
Does that sound like it might work?
And what is a realistic goal to lose each week or fortnight?
Hope I can join!

Snack on high protein foods such as eggs and lean meat. Swap butter / margarine for avocado or cottage cheese. Cut your portion size.
I like to aim for a 1 kilo loss per week (it is often more).
Experiment with food/cooking- have fun with it! Make a batch of green soup (detox soup, pretty much any green veg you can find- spinach, coriander, leek, zuchinni, cabbage, brocolli etc) freeze in meal sized portions and have one serve every day or so...
Exercise if you can, even just a brisk walk will do.. aim for 30 or more minutes per day.
