I'm supposed to be losing weight and I don't want to do anything to distract to shock my body.... I'm stuck πŸ˜”
    Try not to get too down on yourself, when I started my fitness/weight loss journey I put on almost 4kg in the first 4 weeks but at my 6 week measurement I had lost heaps in centre meters! It's so disheartening at times but try to push through, we all have good weeks and bad weeks!!

    Thank you! Whilst I'm not eating anything that's really that bad I think maybe I should cut all portions in half. It's the only thing I can think to do at this point. I'm eating food that *normal* people would eat but still putting on weight. It's just so crap! I'll see how I go over the week after cutting portions. I'll also try and bump the exercise up it the rain would go away! Swimming is best for because of a knee injury but the water gets cold after heavy rain.

    Food scales and my fitness pal.

    I was doing normal portions of what I thought were pretty healthy home made meals - turns out there was 800 cal per serve in some those recipes, which was a big shock!!

    I know weigh and log everything (the recipe builder in MFP is awesome) and aim for ~500 cal/serve.

    Think of drinks - coffees, juices, alcohol etc - all of them can be quite sneakily full of calories.

    Salad dressings and cooking oil. Olive oil is around 100 cal/tbsp which is fine if you're cooking 5 serves of meat in it, but not so great if you're only cooking one serve meat.

    So something must be happening to my body, my already fairly loose work jeans are comically baggy today πŸ˜‚. I work in a paint shop so all my jeans have paint on them and I'll be damned if I wear my one non painty pair of jeans to work so they don't fall down hahaha

    Try having a glass of worm lemon water first thing in the morning as well this gets the metabolism working

    Weigh in wasn't so bad this morning- I've lost 200g, which I know is nothing but I expected to put the 1.3kgs that I lost last week back on.
    So in 2 wks I've lost 1.5kgs.
    I'm about to drink a detox tea then will make some protein balls.

    I've been following this thread but haven't posted or written what I want because "fear of failure" and "ugh, commitment". But I've been inspired by a lot of what I've read. I'm down 2.7kgs in a little over a fortnight. Eating around 1300 calories a day and working out 3-4 times a week plus walking the dog 5km most days. My downfall is sugar. I'm not going to day "I'll lose x amount" but I'm feeling pretty positive about dropping another 2.5-3kgs. That would put me at my happy weight range.

    Thanks ladies! I'll definitely start the lemon water and I'll get my fitness pal now as well. Weighing food is definitely something I'll need to start doing! I'm feeling more positive and almost a little excited now that I have a bit of a plan. I just felt so overwhelmed this morning. We only drink water but have had a few glasses of soft drink this week with dinner - socialising is evil! If it was just us then we would have water but add guests into the mix and he calories blow up!

    I'll let you guys know how I go next week. My goal is to drop at least 1kg by next Friday. Fingers crossed I can do it!
