Two Entries in Two Days? Gasp!

I have this whole complex about this site and feeling uncomfortable when I rave on about myself too much, fearing I will sound like I am up my own arse, thus don’t update regularly. Is that not bloody ridiculous? After all this is a journal, and it is called The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl, and I am Dietgirl, so logic follows that it should be about me and my adventures.

Well, derr.

Looking back through the archives, and I know I’ve said this before, my greatest periods of success have been when I wrote regularly. As Julie often says, writing is an invaluable tool for weight loss. And yesterday I was moaning that I couldn’t get my brain back into the weight loss gear. So I’m going to set another mini goal – to write at least three times a week on this site. I will stop worrying about the quality of the writing or whether I sound like a wanker, instead I’ll just spew it out. Hopefully by writing more often I’ll wind up putting more thought into what I eat and how I move my arse. Please check back regularly, and if you don’t see me updating feel free to kick my arse.

. . .

So now I am publically declaring my intent to go to the gym tonight and do the Body Pump class, even though McShouty takes the Friday night class and I can’t stand her. If I am feeling energetic (ie. if she isn’t being too annoying) I might even stay for the Body Combat class afterwards. But for some reason I struggle to do cardio after weights. I can do cardio first, weights second with no worries. But after I’ve been lifting I just want to shuffle home and be done with it. We’ll see how it goes.

Update: I went home after Pump. McShouty was McShitting me. I could put up with it while I had weights to play with, but Combat class would have been something else. I wasn’t in the mood for her “hoo ha hoo” or “come and get me”. Instead I took a brisk extended walk home.

. . .

You know that old saying, “mind over matter”? I really stopped minding my matter over these past couple of months. The mind is such a powerful thing, it can convince you that your ever-expanding matter doesn’t matter. Like recently when I noticed my jeans were very smug around my stomach. My mind said to me, “Looks like they’ve shrunk in the wash!”.

Never mind that they hadn’t been washed in weeks.

  1. Well, considering that I come here specifically to hear you talk yourself up, don’t feel shy! I mean, it’s a personal blog, that’s what it’s all about.

    Besides, with what you’ve accomplished? I’d be shouting to the hills!

    I do find that there’s a sort of “slide back” that happens after the first milestones come through, and I’m feeling comfortable and less anxious about my fat rolls. I think that, for me anyway, it’s more a matter of “I’m not in crisis mode anymore” and I lose focus. For you, since you’ve managed to make some significant lifestyle changes, I don’t know what it would be! But, being aware of it is half the battle, as they say.

  2. I read your entire journal in less than 2 days…and been checking three times a day to see if you updated! It is all so blurry in my mind, I have thought of emailing you but I lack the words. I feel I will sound all soppy an that if I, too, start telling you what an inspiration you are, what an impact your effort has, what a great accomplishment you have made. Woman…you simply ROCK!!!!

  3. I have so been where you are now.
    I lost about 30 kg and then met a boy and he just loved me and I felt pleased with myself and then he was a couch potatoe and I was not late to become one too and then after 5 years he broke up with me and I was then againa fat woman and now unhappy as well. It has taken me over 2 years to put myself together and start again.

    I have now lost almost 30 kg again and have anohter 30 to loose.

    But I know how easy it is to fall back into bad old habits specially if you feel loved and liked cause I was not that used to it.

    Im glad you noticed before you fell back like I did. Good luck.
