I’ve been doing the whole ‘Eating Clean‘ thing for 7 months.  I’ve lost 7kg, and quite a few centimetres.  But, I’m tired now, and have admittedly fallen off the wagon a little bit over the last two weeks.  I’m feeling fed up, I get annoyed when I watch skinny people eat all the delicious food while I nibble on my Ryvita and Cottage Cheese.  I need some inspiration, and I need to not give up, but at the same time, I just want to be fat and happy!  I have 3kg to lose still which is not that much, but it is taking FOREVER.  I just cannot shift these last few kilos.  I have been eating so well, and still I don’t lose weight, and so I’ve gotten a little bit over it.  On top of this, I am craving everything and anything.  You name it, I want to smash it in my face. And before you tell me to exercise, I run quite often.  I admit, I could probably exercise more which would involve waking up at 4AM to go to gym, but I’m not a fan of gyms.  Excuses, yes, I know.

These cheered me up, at least..

  1. My dear partner from Grammy Class.. You looking fabulous ! I totally understand how you feel. I am in the same boat. Didn’t go to class last week – big storm so was really delayed in traffic, was going to see Johnny Clegg , so was pushed for time too. In the back of my mind I also knew that the results would not be positive. Have also fallen off the wagon somewhat and it’s not getting any better. I am also tired and with us heading into the Festive Season its not looking like I will find the renewed strength to climb back on the wagon. So my little fat body will head off on holiday with the hope that after some time off I will come back with renewed enthusiasm and determination. For now I am just doing my best…. We can’t be good all the time – we are only human. Will head for Class on Thursday but don’t think I will be winning at the “Grammy’s”. See you there…. :-)

    • Thanks Donna. I didn’t make it to class last week either – was stuck in traffic from that storm! I weighed myself at home and saw I had put on a kilo which just derailed me even more – so I’m dreading class this week but I will have to force myself to go. Have definitely put on a decent amount of weight. Seems pointless trying if I know I’m going to be bad over Christmas, but that’s the wrong attitude to have. I’ll see you on Thursday! Glad I’m not alone in all of this. :)

  2. I know you run a lot! I run a lot… but I needed something extra, I then discovered CrossFit. Lost 6kg’s in 2 months. Maybe give it a try. It’s really not for everyone, but you never know. Yes, I will try sell it because I love it that much ;)

    I also started the Paleo diet which, for me, is more a lifestyle change, because I can eat bacon!

    • I’m a bit concerned about CrossFit making me too built.. I know a couple girls doing it and they are very muscular which is not what I want to look like at all – I’d rather be slender and toned. With regards to Paleo, I found it a bit too strict. I am also a big carbs fan and don’t believe in cutting something completely out of your diet.

      • I can see the problem with CrossFit. I have muscles popping out of nowhere :)
        I ate strict Paleo the first month, but now I’ve added low-gi bread and rice. The other thing I changed was my portion sizes. Not on purpose, but because I found myself eating less and less.

        On a side note… my son is eating Pizza right now… damn it smells good!

  3. I loved those memes! they sum it up perfectly. haha. Although I’ve decided I don’t like the mantra of “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” – its too obsessive. I have these days all the time though! and when I do, I dress a little better, make a little more effort, and remind myself that I look okay and that I am doing better than I was. The worst thing about measuring happiness in kgs is that you don’t get validation very easily and its so fickle. Keep doing what you are doing- you will get there!
