... up and down....

...Grrr... just don't get it... weigh-in Friday today 80.6kg!!!!  How does that work, have been very conscious of my food intake this week as can notice the extra fill in my band, infact have tracked on MyFitnessPal this week and here's my calorie intake for the week, bearing in mind the the Dr said to have 1200calories as my limit:

Sun:  1190
Mon:  730
Tues:  846
Wed:  1183
Thur:  921

Have had some constipation (TMI) maybe this has something to do with it - just so bloody irritating and demotivating!  I'll give it another week, and will then go back to Dr for a scan to check all's fine with my band (which I'm sure it is).  Come on girlies, any advice?

Anyhoose, my non-scale victory (NSV) for the week.... I had to buy some new work trousers as my others were starting to look a little big... and I bought a size 14 - whoop whoop!  That was my ultimate goal at the beginning to buy a size 14.  Having said that, I couldn't buy a 14 in all shops as everything is cut so differently, my new snug fitting jeans are a size 16..... but was really pleased to be buying size 14!

Played "fill-in!" for a friends netball team on Tues, wow.... I certainly got a good run-around!  The team play at a higher level that me, so I got a good workout...and have been zumba as normal.

Well Perth got its first storm/rainfall this morning..... about time we haven't had rain in months.... but it came down like you wouldn't believe.... consequently the gutters etc couldn't cope and I had rainwater coming in the air con vents, and pouring down the inside of my new kitchen window....!  Another job that will need fixing!

Not much planned for this weekend, the kids are out at parties tomorrow and Rich is at rugby so a quiet evening for me..... what shall I plan?

Hope everyone is well....x

Out with the old, in with the new.....

Phew... 79.6kg today..... so it wasn't a fluke!!  Not a huge loss but at least I'm out of the 80's... I hope!!!  I went to see the Dr on Monday, as I haven't really lost anything since November, and she said that I should be loosing something although it would only be little and slow....  She gave me 0.3ml extra in my band and said if I don't see a change over the next couple of weeks to go back - I may need an xray to check that the band hasn't slipped, hope that's not the case!  Think I can feel a little more restriction since the fill.... but nothing major - watch this space!

Here's a pic of me with my family:

ha ha... you didn't realise I had such famous folks did you!!!

Had a real good clear out of my wardrobe - out with the old and in with the new - have a range of sizes in my wardrobe and some clothes that are older than my 13yr old daughter!!  Was very ruthless and gave everything to charity that was a size 18 and above..... blimey there's not much left in my closet..!!!   I reckon a shopping trip is on the cards!

Wow.... look at it all!!

Have quite a full on weekend this week, am out with some girlfriends tonight which will be a boozy affair, and then am out with a different set of girlfriends tomorrow night which won't be a boozy affair but which will include eating!  Not conducive to weightloss so will have to plan ahead!

Rich has been trying to get Katie Perry tickets for him and Holly, but they were all sold out - so he got them tickets to see her in Melbourne instead..... he thought it was good excuse for us all to have a weekend away! Have to say I agree with him!!!   Its not till December, so will be great for some Christmas shopping...

Would love to know how everyone is doing??.....x

Do you remember the 70's???

Well, we are back from our long weekend in Sydney and had an awesome time, a real good vibe about the place!  Albeit it did nothing but rain..... so we weren't able to do the open top bus ride or Bondi beach, but gives us an excuse to have to go back!  We did walk round the city, did some shopping, looked at the bridge and the opera house, took a water taxi, watched the Lion King musical which was absolutely fabulous, Madame Tussards, shopping etc.  We did lots of walking, eating and drinking..... found some really good restaurants and generally had a super time!

Well nothing's changed with my weightloss, weighed myself on Friday morning at the normal time and was 80kg...... damn, damn, damn..... am really starting to hate that number!  Went off to zumba, came home did some housework and just happened to weigh myself before jumping in the shower and look:

The scales read 79.6kg (apologies don't know how to flip the photo....)
 whoop, whoop..... 79.6kg, am I finally out of the 80's or is this just a fluke!!!  Will have to wait until my next Friday weigh-in to find out.  I have however, made an appt to go back to the clinic on Monday, am not sure whether I need anymore fill but need to find out if there is anything I can do to speed things along again!  Hope you all have a good week.........
