Happy New Year!!

I am still here... just needed a break from the blogging thing - especially with the crappy anon comments... I just didn't want to deal with them any more - quite frankly I have bigger things to worry about than someone who I don't even know from a bar of soap trying to make me feel an inch big. I have some family stuff going on (the big C) with my inlaws, to trying to keep it together, sort out my wedding and lose weight.. nicely plateuing at the moment at 92kg.. and I'm totally cool with that.. :)

Hope everyone had a good christmas! I was with my inlaws for christmas and I only had a couple of spewing instances. I can't believe it's taken me nearly a whole year to work out what portion sizes to have. I've recently figured out that I really don't even need to eat a bread and butter plate sized portion of food... that I really should only be eating half to three quarters of that. I'm also still eating way past the 30minute mark.. and I know that's when I should stop, put the knife and fork down and step away from the plate. I'm getting that I don't have to eat what is on my plate (albiet a small plate) to be full!

The best thing this Christmas was that I didn't gain any weight! I ate crap, I still exercised... and I maintained... I usually always gain over christmas... big time gain... like 4-5kg gain!! I had a bit of fluid gain, but I think that was from the travel and have promptly lost that over the last few days. I'm back walking and cycling and have even started jogging!! WooHoo!

I've been getting so many comments from people... it's so nice to know that people are really noticing the weight loss now...

Now to break the plateau!!!

Í've just found your blog, and I've gone back through some of your older posts. You've done so well so far, and should be really proud of yourself. Reading blogs like yours helps me with my banding journey - I was banded on the 14th of Jan.
