A couple of weeks ago Ross and I went camping (as you may know). While I was there I had a lot of time to think - considering I couldn't go hiking. One of the things on my mind was my weight.
While I am mostly content with who I am, I can't help but wonder if one of the reasons I not only hurt my Achilles, but also why it is taking so long to heal, is my size. While I was away I decided to do something I always swore I wouldn't do - I decided to try one of those meal replacement diets for a few weeks to try to kick off my new weight loss efforts.
I got the Terry White Chemist ones (cheaper than Optifast) and gave it a go. Turns out I was right all along. Those things are just not enough food... The best I have done is 2 days, before succumbing to mind numbing hunger and bingeing like there was no tomorrow.
So, I am back on Calorie King. Not sure if I'm going to jump back into the forums, although I have said hello on the 50+ one already. My concern is that I will get obsessed again, and I can’t do that to myself or to Ross, it just isn’t fair. I am going to try and be easy on myself. Eat back my exercise calories, and mainly focus on good food and exercise (when I can). I would like to lose about 18kgs before the Shave – this is a vanity thing, I want a slimmer face. LOL But to be honest, anything will be better than now.
