My Moment

The gorgeous Nicole at Turning "I can't" into "I can" one pound at a time posted a great reflection about her 'moment' last Friday. Couldn't have been a more timely reminder. You can read about my original moment here.

This time round, the moment happened for me on Friday when I tried on this gorgeous dress to wear to A's step-sister's engagement party Sunday just gone, and he said 'Nay'. That made me incredibly sad. I also became incredibly frustrated with myself for getting pudgy. Too much ice cream and too much pizza.

What actually made me stressed was the fact I want to wear it to a wedding on the 30th of November. We can't afford for me to buy a new outfit. I bought this a few months ago on sale and, although there is another dress I have spotted that is also on sale, I want to wear this.
I need to get back into my good habits and not give in to laziness. It would also do A the world of good too, he's got a suit he needs to fit into in February for his brother's wedding!

So, the gorgeous Honeysuckle dress is my moment. Hopefully with all the rearranging of furniture we're doing at home, I'll get a kick start in what needs to be done.

When or what was your moment?

Monday: Measurements and other stuff

I have been so completely busy today that I forgot to weigh myself this morning and forgot to take my measurements 'til a couple of hours ago.

Weight          80kg
Neck             35cm
Bust              105cm
Under Bust   92cm
Waist            94.5cm
Hips              117cm
Butt              112cm
Thigh            88cm
Arm              34cm

Today's food has been fairly good, including a small amount of dark chocolate. We've rearranged and cleaned the bedroom, so there's been lots of movement and burning of energy.
I haven't tracked on MFP or printed out my goal charts yet, but that can and will happen tomorrow, along with meal planning and pictures (I'm sick right now, so really don't fancy posting pasty selfies!)

Now it's time for pork eggplant hot pot leftovers from last night, and more rest!

Life got in the way, and I let it take control. Ooops.

Tomorrow I'm back on deck for weight loss! I've been SO flipping busy since finishing uni that I haven't even had time to think about me. Consequently, new dress I bought a few months ago to wear to a wedding in 2 weeks is now too tight in the mid section, my bras aren't fitting me any more, and I'm just generally feeling blah about my appearance.

I'll be doing my 5kg/2 months challenge I did when I lost all my weight last year; going to get back to blogging; hopefully get back into MFP which I found time consuming in the end...or maybe it just bored me? I don't know.
Anyway, my back is feeling pretty strong these days, and as long as the weather stays warm and dry, I will be back out pounding that pavement. I want to wear my swimsuit comfortably again this summer!

Weigh-in Wednesday is still my day; I don't think I can get used to it being any other day. I'm sure there is a mnemonic for the other days of the week pertaining to weight loss/weighing in, but honestly, Weigh-in Wednesday makes the most sense.
Before pictures and measurements will be posted, along with starting weight, tomorrow at some stage.

I'll try to blog Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. If you haven't seen me post anything, check in with me. I need to be accountable again!

So, until my post tomorrow, ¡hasta maƱana!
