I haven’t been since I was like…14ish. It was so awesome. I still haven’t learnt how to stop, so I kinda just crash into the wall lol.
I met my best mate there and he told me that I looked “tiny”. My gosh. I’ve never been called “tiny” before. I haven’t lost that much weight since I saw him last…I don’t think. Maybe it was because I had tights on or something and may have looked thinner? I don’t know. Whatever, it made me feel good about all the hard work I’ve been putting in lately.
After skating I got to watch my ice hockey team play (we won). I fucking love ice hockey. I want to play so bad!!! I think I’d be good at it - you know, apart from the fact that I don’t know how to stop yet hahaha.
Go Sydney Ice Dogs!
I wasn’t on my best form during January. I had a few ups and downs. I lost weight, then put it back on. At least my final tally for the month was a loss, so that’s good. But I still know it could have been waaay better!
Jan 2nd: 67.5kg (148.5lbs)
Feb 3rd: 66.5kg (146.3lbs)
So that’s just a piddly little loss of 1kg (2.2lbs). On the brighter side, at least it wasn’t a gain of 1kg. So I shouldn’t feel too bad.
Below are my measurements. The ‘Today’ measurements are from Feb 3rd.
Since I haven’t really been trying to lose weight lately, I haven’t actually had a need to update my stats.
But now that I’ve whipped my ass back in gear I have finally had the pleasure of updating my stats page.
Here’s my first weight loss update of the year:
Starting Weight: 67.5kg (148.5lbs) — 2 Jan, 13
Current Weight: 65.7kg (144.5lbs) — 11 Jan, 13
Total Weight Loss So Far: 1.8 (4lbs)
Will Reach UGW (55kg) In: 10.7kg (23.5lbs)
I weight myself this morning. 66.5 fucking kilos. 2.3 kilos away from my highest recorded Tumblr weight.
At least I know how much I’ve put on though. I’ve been delaying doing this until after Christmas because I just know the numbers will be bad.
So now that I know, it’s the perfect motivation for me to wake the fuck up and get back on the healthy lifestyle path I know I can live, because I’ve done it before - and loved it.
Motivation is high, even if my self esteem is low. It’s all good.
Check out Jonathan Bailor’s ‘The Smarter Science of Slim’.
It’s a really great listen. Thanks to Jonathan I’ve realised that I don’t need to count calories anymore. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to ditch calorie counting and just live my life and thankfully, I’ve finally done it. And successfully I might add. Still losing fat, but eating enough so that I never feel hungry.
And of course, I should throw in a mention for my super-dooper favourite podcast ever, ‘Cut the Fat’. I’ve mentioned it a few times on my blog before, but just thought I’d mention it again for the uninitiated.
There’s this adorable (and cheap) accessories store called Lovisa that just opened up in my local shopping centre. I shopped at a Lovisa in Parramatta a few months ago and purchased this awesome ring from there. I loved most of their stuff but didn’t want to spend a fortune in there (which you could easily do I might add).
So when one opened up in my local shopping centre I was stoked. I purchased this cute gold ring (see below) and picked it up in the same size that my other ring was, medium.
Afterwards I did my grocery shopping, came home and got on with the rest of my evening. It wasn’t until I was in bed that I was like, what the fuck happened to my new ring! I didn’t remember taking it off.
Turns out my fingers are skinnier than they were a few months ago, I’m actually a small in my ring size and the thing slipped off my finger at the shopping centre. I was so gutted! It was adorable. Lucky it was only a cheap little thing…I guess.
In memory of my ring. RIP dear ring.
Also, my first Lovisa ring no longer fits me. I can’t even wear it on my thumb. Sucks to have to give my ring away to my sister, but I can’t be upset if it’s because my fingers are getting skinnier due to my weight loss.
So, I stumbled upon this website from the BBC that compares you and your weight to the rest of the world. It’s pretty daunting actually haha.
Here’s what I got:
Above average compared to the rest of the world :( I’ll need to work on that!
If you want, you can type your own info into the calender right here.
Aww yeah, that’s what’s up.
Since I’m back on track and taking things seriously again I’ve been able to steadily lose 4.2kg. And that includes the emotional 3 days of binge eating around the anniversary of my nan’s death (because eating chocolate and junk food is apparently the only way I know how to grieve).
I’m really quite proud of myself. I know I’m on track, eating healthy, exercising and doing everything I can be in order to feel good this summer.
Hope you’re on track too x
Because I will be able to comfortably get around wearing a white singlet top and not feel the least bit self conscious.
I can’t wait till I can post my ‘white singlet’ photo on here :)
Until then, here’s a pic of Minka Kelly.
Just had some Lindt chocolate as my little cheat treat snack.
I haven’t had a cheat treat for a while, and usually when I’m in ‘weight loss mode’ I tend to be really harsh on myself and don’t eat anything bad, then eventually I wind up having a binge session.
I’m learning how to not do that this time around by allowing myself to have some naughty foods every now and then. You have to be realistic when leading a healthy life and you aren’t going to be perfect 100% of the time, so you need to learn how to eat the bad foods in moderation.
I’ve earned my treat, so I’m going to enjoy it :)
I know I’ve kind of been absent off of here lately. And my ‘Road to the ball’ journey just kind of faded away with my lack of interest in posting.
But the ball was on Friday night and I had such a great time. Here’s a pic of me from the night.
I saw a few old friends and one of them kept talking about how much weight I’ve lost.
Yet the thing is, I’ve put on a substantial amount of weight since I got down into the 55kg range. But to my friend that I haven’t seen for literally years, I would have look liked I’d lost a lot of weight. But you know what I said when he said that I’ve lost weight? I said “yeah I did, then I put it back on again and I need to lose it again”. I couldn’t just say thank you! Why couldn’t I just say thank you?? I really need to work on my opinion of my self image.
Hearing someone comment on my weight loss really made me feel happy though. I’d forgotten what that was like. So I’m going to get out of my slump, and start living my healthy lifestyle again. I’m not going to be so strict on myself. I’m going to try a different approach. One that won’t allow me to be derailed so easily.
So tomorrow morning I’ll be back at the gym and back to eating healthy foods. Wish me luck haha.
Sorry, didn’t get a chance to weigh in yesterday! I was too flat out at work and home etc etc blah blah.
Weight Loss (Wed & Thurs): 1kg
Current Weight: 64.5kg
Haven’t been able to head to the gym for the past two days, so I’m really happy with the 1kg loss! I’m going to make sure I make it to the gym in the morning though. I don’t want my body to start feeling sluggish.
