147 Days In

Well, I haven't posted for 6 weeks - I haven't completely lost motivation or put on weight, I moved house and my computer died, so it's taken me a little while to get back online.

The last few weeks have been hard. I've been really slack with the bike, because I find it so boring to do without being able to watch something while doing it. I'd watch tv shows on my computer while on the bike, but now, with it also being really cold, I'm really lacking motivation. I've been eating well, but not 100% of the time, I've gone out a bit, and on weekends I've been struggling a bit. I'm a little concerned about the wedding - I leave on July 28 for canada, and I need to fit into a size 38 pants, and a size 44 jacket. I think I'll be ok with the pants, it's the jacket I'm a little concerned about. My mate is sending me the suit and it should be here in 2 weeks, so I'll know if I need to start starving myself....

I weighed myself this morning and I was 127kg exactly. I'm happy with that - 30.6kg down is a great effort and I know it. What's disappointing is I know if I'd really worked hard the last 6 weeks, I could be under 120, and not stressing about this suit. I'm not sure how it happens, but I know Ive gotta fit into it, but I still do stupid things like ordering that hash brown with my sunday brunch that I know I dont need. And I need to just get back on the bike....

Anyway, at least I'm still going in the right direction. I'll try listening to music on the bike, or something - I have to. I can really feel the fitness I've lost in the last month that I haven't been using it.

People are really starting to notice the weightloss, so thats good, and I had to go out and buy some new jeans, and I need new work pants because they really are just to big.

98 Days In

Well I didn't get to post last week as I was away for Easter. It was always going to be a tricky time!!

I weighed myself last Monday and was 132.6kg - 25kg down!!! I was extremely happy, but was slightly concerned for the Easter break - I set myself a goal of no chocolate which I did break, but only had a few small easter eggs and that was it. Had a few dinners out, and some not so healthy meals, but I tried not to be too bad. No exercise bike either which was not good, but I did get to go on a few short walks. I weighed myself this morning and I was still exactly 132.6kg, so I'm pleased that I didn't put anything back on. I need to get back focus from tomorrow and make sure I try and bike every day and get back into my healthy eating habits.

My next goal is to break 120kg. As I've lost my 15% before June 30, I've ensured that I don't have to fork out any money - with a bit of luck I'll make some if my mates both dont also lose the 15%, but for their sakes I hope they make it.

I have until July 28 until I go to canada for a couple of weeks for the wedding. Thats 13 weeks away. If I stick to a modest 1kg a week, I'll get to 120kg by then, which would really be great, so its good motivation.

10 weeks down, and another 1.1 kg lost last week. I'm now down to 139.3. Happy with that since I only went on the bike 3 times, and had a couple of less than healthy meals. Going to really try and get a good number for next week.

Well I was pretty nervous getting on the scales this morning. I'd only used the exercise bike last Monday, and then last week was so busy and I was so tired I didn't get to go on it again. I had 4 days at the Clipsal 500, but I was good and brought my lunch with me on the Thursday and Friday. But it seems I was worried for nothing - This mornings weight was 140.4kg, so another 1.2kg down, which I'm pretty damn happy with since the exercise was fairly lacking (although i did do some walking around the track). I'll be back on the bike tonight and try to ensure I do it every night so that next weigh in I can put a big dent into the 130's. Not far to go until my initial goal of 133kg which means I'll have succeeded in my bet with my 2 mates, and won't have to fork out $1000... hopefully that's only a few weeks away!
