    I don't even notice that I'm not buying bread, grains, cereal, pasta, lollies, biscuits, cookies, chips, etc because I'm too busy worrying about 0.001g of soybean oil hahahahaha

    Nixxy, lol that is hilarious! It's good to laugh at ourselves, and to share a joke so others can smile too, thanks. And congrats on your fantastic progress to date. Grok on.

    I think Iíve figured out why Iíve been a bit ďoffĒ this weekÖ

    I have been dwelling on the fact that I am not going to be a healthy weight this summer. (In NZ summer is Nov-Feb).

    I started this journey in March and I think I had a lot of dreams about this summer and how Iíd be more confident and go on big walks and swim in random places and go for runs and bike rides and just be carefree like I use to be.
    I didnít really SAY these things out loud but I think in my subconscious, it has really been a ďthingĒ.

    The reality is I had, and still have, a lot of weight to lose. And itís not realistic to expect that from mid-March to November (7.5 months) I would lose the amount required for me to be a healthy weight. I think the reality of this dawning on me has been creating a few unhappy thoughts and has just been weighing on my mind a bit.

    I try REALLY hard not to put all my hopes on losing weight but honestly, itís all Iíve got. I know how that sounds, but Iím being truthful. I am happy with myself in almost every way EXCEPT for my weight.

    I need to be happier and more content, even while I am overweight. I know this, and I have known this from the start. But itís REALLY hard when people tell you, you just need to love yourself and others will too, because honestly, it has been 4 years and I donít think a single person has seen me the way I see myself in that time. I LIKE myself, I really do. I probably like myself a bit too much. No one would ever describe me as lacking confidence, really. Everyone is selfconscious at times, so my selfconsciousness about my body is not an obvious part of my character. I donít buy it any more. I donít get it, I donít. I know plenty of overweight girls who basically live as if theyíre not overweight (which is exactly how it should be, of course)Ö but for me, itís like my life STOPPED when I got fat. And there is nothing else to explain it. I have pored over it for hours, and there is absolutely nothing else besides my weight that has created this change. I am MORE confident now than when I was skinny. I am more intelligent. I am funnier. My personality has developed into a better oneÖ yet none of that has made a difference, and my life is still lacking in many ways because of my weight.

    I just donít know. Like I feel so DONE sometimes. How can people tell you these positive things about loving yourself, when theyíre not true?!

    I donít want to be a negative nancy. Many people have success as overweight people. It just doesnít work for me for some reason. Donít let my mood get you down.

    I am writing a more positive post about what these realisations mean for me soonÖ
    I know what you mean. Every summer it is a shame to live in a country where the xmas break equals summer holidays and you almost want to run away to a cold environment to cover up. When you want to have fun and play in the sun but feel the need to cover up. When it is so uncomfortable to be hot and have to cover up. When your perfect relaxing holiday would be a low key beach holiday, easily accessible, but you can't bear it. Just wanted to say I get it. And I have had those disappointed thoughts I didnt do better through the year and I can't fix it now in time. I get it, don't feel bad for writing an entry like that, many of us would feel the same. But your photos show excellent progresss. and if I dare say, you should go out there this summer. Hey, worst comes to worst, we are invisible, so anyone who looks at you now, won't know it was you when you are your ideal weight!

    Aw thank you. My friends keep telling me about people we know saying things about my weight loss and my appearance and it's simultaneously nice and sad at the same time ha. I went to a friends party the other weekend and apparently this guy (who I only know through the friend group, I don't know if we've ever even had a conversation) said to my friend "she's lost lots of weight hasnt she? good on her, she's going to be so hot."
    HAHAHAHA. Like it's nice but it's weird and it makes me a bit sad because some of these people had no interest in me whatsoever before and now I know people who suddenly do obviously do not give a shit about my actual personality, considering it's been the same the whole time.

    Hahahah I know. I remember realising in January this year that I had that belly... and just being horrified. It snuck up on me. How a belly sneaks up on you... I don't really know, but it did.





    I'm not making much progress. I have moved cities for a 3 month job and I haven't adjusted to a proper healthy routine and I am just treading water. Also I am staying with family and it is SO HARD making the right choices when they're eating bad "foods" (We know the crud they're eating isn't even definable as food). Where I normally live I cook for myself separately and I don't buy those bad foods so the temptation isn't there.

    I need to kick myself up the butt and get on with it. I' always moping about slow progress but not doing anything about it. It's so hard to find a balance between appreciating the progress you've made and being happy, but also realising there's still work to be done and not letting yourself slack off.

    Lately I don't even feel like I've lost weight, I just feel the same. I've gotten use to my new size and haven't noticed any progress for what feels like months. I need to stay positive and just continue.

    I always tell myself, it's not like I'm ever going back to any other style of eating as my "normal". So I KNOW it's only a matter of time before I'm a healthy weight. I'm just impatient. If I continue how things have been for the last 3 months, it'd probably take me another 14 months to reach my goal. If I get my head back into it, it'll probably be more like 8 months. I mean either way, I'll get there, it's just annoying to have to wait, but I'm trying to enjoy the journey. I can't even imagine what it will feel like to suddenly realise I have no use for the scale any more and I no longer care about that number.
