Time to get serious!

So I have an appointment with Fill doctor next week (thank the lord!) and I'm now at 87kg!!! I've gained 3.4kg in 6 weeks!!! *eek* OK, so I was massively dehydrated to start with when I weighed in, so I never truely believed I was 83.6kg, but the numbers did flash on the scales.. so there is some truth in them... maybe I was in too much disbelief for it to sink in...

The sad reality is, is that I have gained 3.4kg since then! I haven't gone completely nuts with my food intake - I've had Macdonalds only once! But my portion sizes are now 1.5 - 2 cups of food and I'm hungry within an hour. My only saving grace is the fact that I have kept up my exercise and have been to the gym 4-5 times / week.

I had a pretty indulgent weekend though... out for dinner on Saturday night - 3 course meal. I chose the healthiest options - A lovely black sesame seared tuna, then a gorgeous piece of salmon with a lovely salad, and then a small slice of Bomb Alaska for dessert, but I did also have 3 lemon, lime bitters (I was designated driver), which were around 150cal a drink... Saturday (after a spin class) I relaxed for the rest of the day and had a load of chocolate and then Sunday, after starting the day off with half a gorgeous omlette, I picked and picked and picked cos I was bored! I should have gone for a walk or something, but I had burnt my hand (while making the Omlette!!) so I was in quite a bit of pain and was clutching at an ice pack for most of the day.

Today I was back at the gym this morning, burnt 550 cals and felt really great. Got alot of after work things on Wed - Fri, so going to aim to go to the gym in the morning and at Lunch time. I'm going to go to the gym twice tomorrow (Spin class in the morning then ABT at lunch) because I'm going to QLD for the weekend, so won't be getting much gym action while I'm up there!

Forgive my randomness. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I miss my fill !!! I'm looking forward to be filled again so I can get some more control over my eating. Exercise isn't a problem.. I love it more and more... it's just my eating!!

Happy Monday People!

the weight gain sucks, but you know you can get back down there! Cooking is dangerous - I'm yet to complete a meal without burning myself! I'm a wreck!

All the best,
Em :)

You did really well without lots of fill. You should be pleased with that result. You also said you were going to exercise and you did. Kudos to you!

I hope I can get to the point where I love exercise! At least you are recognising what triggers you into picking and that is a main hurdle. you will be fine!

Chocolate and picking - eeek. An ├╝ber scary combination.
