Day 84

It’s been a while since I posted in my blog because eliminating food is not that exciting. But I have still been going ahead with my 2017 New Years resolution and slowly slowly the weight is coming off. Today I had a look at my weight loss chart and noticed an interesting thing. Every few…

Day 36

Lost: 3.8kg State of mind: want lollies and chocolate! Now! Actually, feeling weirdly calm for about a month now, like as if all the wheat and sugar (probably really the sugar) have had me buzzing for years. Most likely it has. So no real mood swings or even blips this month. In fact the whole…

Day 29

It’s been 29 days now without wheat or sugar. It’s a little boring to be honest, but I do feel like, even after a month, I could easily go on a sugar or bread rampage, so obviously my food demons are still pretty cranky. I’m trying to cook up delicious foods and cook them in…

Day 23

I’ve just passed 3 weeks and I’ve lost 3.1kg’s. I feel good, but I am starting to eyeball ice cream and I know I can’t have lollies or biscuits in the house, because I am nearly drooling when I pass them in the supermarket! I think at this time of year when I’m working in…

Day 19

Yesterday I didn’t post, but I put on 300g. Today I lost 400, so I’m now down to 9.9kg over my BMI. Still feeling good, but having trouble with the heat. That’s normal for me at this time of year in the tropics though. No binges so far, and I had a good workout this…

Day 17

Another .5kg down! This may not be permanent because yesterday was a huge day physically, in the heat and humidity, so some of it could be dehydration, although I did have heaps of fluids. So, hopefully I am now down 2.6kg (10 to go to get me back into the healthy BMI range). Fingers crossed….

Day 16

Still sitting on a 2.1kg loss, but it feels a bit more permanent now. My long run on Sunday felt better. It was really hot and the humidity was extremely high, but I completed my run. We’re keeping it to 11k for our Sunday runs for the next few months, just until the heat backs…

Day 14

I am trying not to get too excited, but today I lost another 500 grams on the scale. This puts me at a total of 2.1kg in 14 days! I have friends who will diet for a few weeks before anything much happens, and then it all starts to peel off. I really hope I’m…

Day 13

On day 11 I said there’s been no significant difference with my weight, but I’ve since noticed that I’m sitting pretty steadily on a 1.6kg weight loss, so maybe it is starting to have an effect on my weight! Fingers crossed! Can’t get too excited because there’s still a long way to go, but I…

DAY 11

It’s been 11 days without sugar or wheat products and not much has really happened with my body. I do feel better mentally, a little calmer, a bit more tired, so I was obviously sourcing a lot of my energy from sugar and dodgy foods. I really haven’t changed much on the scales which is…

Day 5

Another 400g on this morning so today I will be keeping myself honest, and even more boring, by adding a food diary. Breakfast: 2 egg omelette with chicken, potato and avocado (small amount of each Snack: Banana Lunch: Chicken caesar salad, no dressing or croutons. 1 flat white with almond milk Snack: vodka, lime &…

Day 4

The heat just keeps coming! Luckily today we got a little rain, not that it does much, just turn everything to steam. Day 4 has been fine. I’ve had to tell a few people that I’m going off sugar and wheat for a year because otherwise I was being rude: like turning down a delicious…
