Boeing 747 Arms

Howdy kids. How is life treating you? I hope you are well. Have you had a good week? I am craving interaction. Here, have a fat-free cookie and a glass of air and tell Aunty Dietgirl.

I’m still trucking along. The scales aren’t doing much yet the inches seem to be inching away. I have been working weekends so the lack of break means I’ve been very tired and cranky and prone to spontaneous napping instead of exercise. Still keeping up with the Body Balance and weights though.

I need to refocus. I still see myself as Supersized so sometimes I let myself believe I can get away with eating a bit more. But I think I need to cut back my portions and move my arse with more dedication. So here’s some new little goals that I will tell you all here so I will get the guiltypants if I don’t come up with the goods.

1. I’m going to start walking up and down the hilly streets near where I live, which is a cardio workout the boobs can handle until I get a new sports bra.

2. Ingunn mentioned NutriDiary the other day, and I am going to give it a go. I haven’t written down what I ate for ages, and I’ve never counted calories, but I do like clicking clicking clicking and filling in web forms. NutriDiary is pretty and I am mesmerized by the groovy little glass graphics that you click on to indicate how much water you’ve drunk! Rock and roll!

Some online peoples have said to me recently that I look "pretty normal" and maybe I don’t need to lose any more weight. Ahh, I wish that were the case! I think the problem is the photos make me look better than the reality. I am worried that picture is a bit deceiving.

I am still around 20 kilos (44lb) above even the very top of my ideal weight range. I am still a size 18 (well I was last time I bought clothes). My arse may be shrinking but I still have all manner of rolls on the front side. And my thighs are thunderous! How they clang and clash as I gallumph down the street. And my arms! The front size of them have developed rather impressive biceps, but on the underside it’s all turkey gobble. I am sure if I flapped my arms long enough I could fly back to Australia for free.

So yeah. I am still lardy. I think the clothes hide it, and the fact that a lot of the weight has come off my face and shoulders might things look smaller. I think my proportions make it look like I am not that lardy, but when I stand beside 90% of people I know, you can see I am still a hefty lass. I really should put something in the photos to give you some perspective. Like a carton of milk or a television. Then you could say, "Oh yeah, now I see! Her arse is still huge when you look at it in relation to a telephone box".

  1. Ah DG, and here I was thinking photos made one ‘gain’ weight not look smaller than they are! Isn’t it funny how we always see the negative side… well it’s not funny really.

    You have lost a huge amount of weight, and although you still have a ways to go before you reach your goal, you are 3/4 of the way there. Stop for a second and congratulate yourself for what you have achieved. Feel proud.

  2. huckle chortle chuckle! Your a funny gal, a bit hard on yourself, but I get that because most of us are like that.

    Thanks for keeping us in the loop.



  3. Hey there!
    I just wanted to pop in and say hi.
    I LOVE your ‘Boeing 747 Arms’ title. I call mine Nana arms, but your nic name is MUCH better.
    I think it was Nessajane or Mopsy that told me about your diary – so blame them for a new reader – okay!
    Love your humour, wit and determination!
    Keep up the great work, I’m sure you will make your goal and dreams come true!
