    Week: Mon 24-3-14 to Sun 30-3-14

    Weigh In
    Last Week: 90.8 kg
    This Week: 89.9 kg
    Lost/Gained: - .9 kg

    Current Stats
    Start weight: 94.2 kg
    Current weight: 89.9 kg
    Goal weight: 67 kg

    Exercise
    I walked 4 days last week doing just over 3 km each time.

    Week experience
    I had a good week. Keep to my own personal eating plan and did my exercise. Drank lots of water. Had a couple of meals where I would liked to have eaten a lot more but I resisted. Some days it seems quite easy and others a bit harder. Tried to keep a positive attitude and just take it one day at a time.

    Goals (if any)
    I don't have any specific goal for the new week other than more of the same!

I know that it has kicked it because by this time I will be super hungry. I had a small breakfast and a steak lunch. I've read that eating small meals is crucial to success. As always I wish to maintain a positive attitude.

    My goal is to be a healthy 87 kg.

    Week: Mon 24-3-14 to Sun 30-3-14 (weighed in today though as its my first week)

    Weigh In Last Week:
    95.2
    This Week: 92.0
    Lost/Gained: down 3.2 kgs

    Current Stats
    Start weight: 95.2
    Current weight: 92.0
    Goal weight: 70

    Exercise
    I do classes at our local gym. I do Hit Box 2 nights a week and a pump class on one. I have been walking 2 days a week after I get home from work and that's a 5klm round trip. I have lost a total of 8kgs since the start of the year and can already feel the difference in my fitness which I am loving.

    Week experience This was my first week on Duromine. The first night was not pleasant at all with not being able to sleep until after 3am, bad headaches and feeling sick in the stomach. Very happy that has all gone now. I am not getting the burst of energy others do, maybe because I am only on the 15mg. I do get head spins when I have been sitting for a while and get up. But if that's the only side affect , I am happy. But I will say I love that my clothes are getting a bit too big for me....

    Goals (if any)
    My first goal is to get in the 80's. I cant remember the last time I was so that will be awesome.
    My second goal is to loose 20kgs all up by July...I know its a big number, but im 8kgs down and for the first time in my life I feel I have the tools to do it. I want to go wedding dress shopping in July.

    Exercise Its actually been raining here which is so rare for the outback so haven't been able to do my walks everyday so just went to the gym for my classes. one class on Monday and 2 on Thursday.

    Week: Mon 31/03/2014 - Sun 06/04/2014

    Weigh In
    Last Week: 89.9kgs
    This Week: 89.3kgs
    Lost/Gained: -.6 kgs

    Current Stats
    Start weight: 94.2 kgs
    Current weight: 89.3 kgs
    Goal weight: 67 kgs

    Exercise
    Got in 4 walks this past week. Why is it the last one is always the hardest :)

    Week experience:
    Had a good week. When we went to the City on Friday I did indulge. How? I shared half a piece of Date, Apple and Walnut cake with my husband. In previous days I would have eaten the whole lot by myself. And then had a nice eat up session at home and started again the next day. Not this time! I had a light dinner when we got home.

    Goals (if any)
    Just to keep on keeping on. I read someone's blog ages ago and they talked about the honeymoon period. You start off working on losing weight and then after a few weeks you kind of get slack and get over it and go back to your old ways. I don't want to do that. So I want to just keep being consistent.

    It is good to see the support on this forum - it goes a long way.

    As you will read on my blog - I have thrown in the towel on duromine. The side effects have proved to harsh for me. Good luck to all you guys! I hope it goes well.

    Didn't do any this week. Why? Totally unmotivated. Lots going on. Stressing. Depressed.

    Week experience
    While it's been a rough week with my emotions and with the weather I can say that I didn't use them as excuses to binge and eat.

    Goals (if any)
    Another week of being committed to improving myself.
