If you have a lot of weight to lose, the end goal can seem so far away.

I still have at least 15kg to lose (probably closer to 20kg) to lose, so I've decided to break this into mini goals of 3kg lots. (Starting from 55.0kg).

So the goals posts are:

And then I'll see how I'm looking.

Not sure how I will celebrate each mini goal - it's not like I can use food to celebrate.

Weight - 30 June 2009

Tuesday, 30 June 2009: 54.8kg, 29% body fat.

I don't think I've been at this weight for about 3 years. Still a long way to go though.

Horrible comments

I was walking to work this morning and a teenage boy stuck his head at the car window and yelled out "you're fat and ugly".

Just goes to show my view of myself isn't distored after all.

Weight - 28 June 2009

Sunday, 28 June 2009: 55.0kg Body fat: 29.6%

Yesterday started off badly, but then the lift broke in my building so I had to walk up a mountain of stairs, and because I'm so unfit I felt so sick once I got up to my apartment that it was easy to throw my guts up. (Not even deliberately).

Weight - 27 June 2009

Saturday, 27 June 2009: 55.5g, Body fat: 29.3%

(I have body fat scales so will start also noting my body fat percentage).

Am absolutely shocked my weight went down considering what I ate yesterday. My Mum used to say that it takes an extra day to catch up with you, so trying to stick to Diet Coke and mandarins today.

Weight - 26 June 2009

Friday 26 June 2009: 55.7kg

Not even a 1kg loss for the week, and I expect my weight to be up tomorrow because I've already eaten too much for the day.

That is probably what my belly looks like at the moment.

Weight - 25 June 2009

Thursday 25 June 2009: 55.9kg

Self-inflicted from eating too much yesterday - after throwing up last night due to alcohol, I really thought I had gotten most everything out my system, but purging never gets rid of all the calories.

Feeling hungover, which at least means I won't be eating much today.

Alcohol - pros and cons

I finished exams yesterday so celebrated by having too much to drink, which led me to think about the pros and cons of alcohol in terms of trying to lose weight.

Reduces will power: In addition to having too much to drink last night I also ate far too much.
Calories: Alcohol has quite a lot of calories, and because they are drunk rather than eaten, you don't feel like you have had that many calories.

If you are like me, and a "one-shot wonder" (i.e. get drunk pretty quickly), it can have some pros:
Makes it a lot easier to throw-up. After coming home from the work dinner last night (where I had far too much to eat), I didn't even have to force myself to throw up.

However, I put on .3 kg between yesterday and today, which in my book means the cons outweigh the pros.

Weight - 23 & 24 June 2009

Tuesday 23 June 2009: 55.8 kg
Amazing, considering I binged Monday night and couldn't make myself throw up much.

Wednesday 24 June 2009: 55.6kg
I have an exam this afternoon so will be eating something to make sure I can concentrate. Then I have a stupid work dinner tonight - hopefully I can get away without eating much. A lot of people I work with are on weight watchers, so hoepfully they will be more concerned with what they are eating.

Plus-price for plus-sizw

From: http://www.cosmopolitan.com.au/plusprice_for_plussize.htm

"UK chain store New Look is under fire for charging £2 more for its range of plus-sized jeans (size 18 and above). The store explained its price rise, saying that while it normally absorbed the extra cost, occasionally it had to pass on the cost to consumers."

Heaven forbid - fat people have to pay more for clothing that uses more materials than "normal" sizes.
