I ate a snack size Cheetos, 2 cans of soft drink, 2 home made crumbed chicken strips, 1/2 Lebanese cucumber, glass of milk and 2 choc chip bikkies.

I'm pathetic. But I have been relatively good with my food choices.

In my defence, I would have had salad with the chicken and the cucumber but the dog vomited all over the floor and I got stuck cleaning it up so it wrecked my appetite

today i had a caramel macaron (omg, died and went to heaven), an iced mocha (small, like that matters), a chicken, pumpkin and chickpea wrap and a can of coke zero.

clearly, i have fallen off my strict raw veges and fruit only diet. i feel so ashamed.

oh well... jump back on tomorrow i guess.

I had a chicken quesadilla and large coke from zambrero (wasn't that good so didn't eat it all), a banana, small veggie spring roll and half a small garlic bread. I'm dying for an iced water though.

Hi All

Been MIA for a few months. Have been focusing my weight loss journey, so I've been spending a lot of time on the forums for that program. Sorry, I feel like a traitor, visiting another forum I've been doing 12WBT (Michelle Bridges program www.12wbt.com ). I'm doing round 3 (everyone starts together and finishes together) and I've just signed on for round 4 which is now in preseason for those newbies and officially starts in November.

Anyway it's been going REALLY well. It has to be the best program I've ever done. It's really not a diet, it's a lifestyle change. What you do in this program, the food you eat, is for life. She has within her program for beginners, intermediate, advanced, lean and strong (for those with no weight to lose but want to tone up), run a marathon and pregnant/breastfeeding programs.

The food has been amazing. Each week you are given a menu plan with breaky, lunch and dinner (your three snacks you do yourself, sticking to guidelines). You don't HAVE to stick to the food plan, I do chop and change a few meals when I don't like something. Then we get a shopping list for the whole weeks menu, which I again change a little deleting things the ingredients for the meals I don't like for ones I do. The meals are food that the whole family can eat. Like wraps and sandwiches for lunch, lots of different breakies including egg and bacon wrap (which is my sunday fav). Steak with creamy mushroom sauce, beef stroganoff, tandoori chicken. Such awesome recipes. Which you print out and put in a binder and at the end you have a recipe book with lots of yummy, healthy recipes.

Exercise has been a little challenging, but as I have been sticking to the nutrition side (which Michelle says is 80% of the program, exercise is 20%), then I have been losing. I have lost 8kgs so far, in the last 8 weeks. Super happy with that. She also heavily focuses on mindset, that much of the problem we have being overweight is mental, our headspace is not right for whatever reason and I completely agree. I still have been having my dark chocolate as a treat, but I just work that into my daily calories so it's fine.

I went and met Michelle last weekend and she was SO lovely. She signed my cookbook and had a bit of a chat.

Anyway will go back through and read up on how everyone is going. Feel like I'm all out of the loop it's been so long since I've been here

Hope everyone is well and looking forward to reading how everyones getting fit progress is going.

A friend has recommended the hcg diet and sent me a PDF of her booklet. It's huge reading so I will get through it and consider it.

Small steak and salad plus some ice cream last night. Peanut butter toast for breakky today plus 45 mins on the treadmill at the gym and a cherry ripe for after. Bought a new Zumba workout DVD (now that I've bought a new one I will find the one the kids lost) too and some scales. Never had scales in my house before. I've lost 1 whole kilo in 2 weeks Now I'm off to have a shower and de-stinkyfy myself before doing the dishes the kids didn't do last night

had a terrible day today at work, things are just getting really, really on top of me when it comes to life in general and i feel like i have way too many balls in the air and i'm a $h!t juggler at the best of times... i am exhausted physically and emotionally and i just need a plan to get things back on track ..

jumped on the scales when i got home and rather than losing weight recently, i have put on, took my measurements and yup, put on inches too.

grrr.

i feel like something drastic needs to be done or else i will end up being one of those morbidly obese crazy women who scream at people from the gutter as they walk by... and quite frankly, nobody wants that...
