    All About Me

    Post  _jo_ on Wed Apr 27, 2011 3:48 am

    I won't tell my life story just yet but i love this idea of telling it over time.
    So some general information to start with
    I'm Jo, 26 (27 in May). I was married in April 2010 and have 2 wonderful kids. Jack is 2 1/2 and Daisy turned 1 in March.
    I work fulltime and also have a Cake Decorating business on the side (for anyone who lives in Brisbane! hehe)

    My starting weight is 124kg and temperary goal is 79kg because this is the loswest i have ever weighed so i have no idea what i'd be like lower. My 'healthy range' is 65-74 so at the moment i'll say 70 as a final goal.

    Starting Detox over Easter was def not a good idea haha. I admit i did have an egg yesterday (a choccy one!) but OMG it was so good and so worth it....i did 30mins extra on the WII cause i felt bad after i ate it haha

    I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing my journey with you

    If i remember tonight i will add a before photo (eww)

    Well After my first 'normal' day i feel really good. Except of course when i was getting traval sick on the bus on the way home...I think i've picked up mum and dads 24 hour stomach bug yuk Crying or Very sad

    I wasn't prepared for Dinner so the kiddies just have leftover chicken, Wiggles pasta shapes and cheese...and ate the whole lot the both of them! Thats a mircle for my kids haha. I managed to find a stray peice of steak in the freezer so that was for me with vegies and some gravy...yum!

    I got some Turkey mince out and some Chicken sausages so once the kids are in bed i can cook up dinner for tomorrow night and snacks for tomorrow also.

    Did i mention my husband is a chef? Well he works most nights so nights are pretty lonely cause he gets home bout 10pm. He will either have what dinner i cook for the next night or will just cook himself something (fussy chef!) Evil or Very Mad

    I wanted to add some pictures as a bit of a history of my weight over the years

    This is me around 17years old @ 127.5kg my heaviest weight

    Here is me December 2007 just after i had lost 47.5kg..i was 80kg

    25wks Pregnant With my first bubba

    By the end of my pregnany i had gained 40kg

    I was the stayed the same weight through my second pregnancy and 4 weeks after her birth we got married (113kg)

    1 year later i'm 11kg heavier at 124kg and hide behind my kids when i have photos taken.

    TEST DAY!

    Post  _jo_ on Fri Apr 29, 2011 11:30 am

    Well today was a bit of a test for me....I had my RDO today which meant looking after the kids all day (usually my hubby does Fridays but he had to work cause of the royal wedding).
    Now my kid...well Daisy is an angel...i couldn't say anything wrong about her except that high pitch sqeel she has when Jack anoys her...which is pretty much every second he is around! Trust me i feel like squeeling to!
    Jack....well what can i say other than Terrible twos!....and he's been going from about 16months old. Jack has had many different versions of his terrible twos which started with his headbanging in the car at 16months old and it progressed from there. This month he's decided just to completely ingore every rule i have dilled into his head over the past 2 1/2 years.
    I will mention at the point his obsession with The Wiggles...before i even have a chance to get out of bed it 'mummy wiggles on please'...YES he says please but seriously there is only so much wiggles on can take!! hissy

    So Basically for me Kids = Stress....Stress = FOOD!

    How did i go?

    GREAT!! I was so proud of myself. I will admit by 12pm i was staring at that container of the kids custard in the fridge. I decided cleaning just wasn't worth the hassle so maybe a trip to find a indoor playground (it was raining today so the park wasn't an option).

    I needed a couple of hings from Ikea and next door they have a shopping centre with playground so though we'll go have lunch at Ikea then he can go play....When we got there the Ikea kids room was calling my name...but could i get away with pretending Jack is 3...YES I COULD! so my angel daisy and I went and had a nice quiet lunch while Jack played....

    Now as for Ikea food I got 2 side salads and a peice of grilled chicken and i'm so proud of myself for that!....those meatballs are always at the top of my list!

    We got home at 2pm and all 3 of us fell asleep till 5! haha a big day!

    The only thing is now Daisy won't go to bed at her usual 6 so hopefully i can last for another half hour with the both of them tourtuing each other

    first free day

    Post  _jo_ on Mon May 02, 2011 2:01 am

    Well my free day didn't go as well as planned...though it is a 'free day' so i shouldn't feel to bad.
    I woke up this morning feeling so bloated and yuk though so it just shows how much better eating well does for your body.
    Yesterday started with some Bran and Full cream milk....thats the only milk we have in the house for the kids cause i always use the milk at work ( we have like 7 to choose from at work haha).

    I didn't have any protien snacks left cause i hadn't been shopping yet so had an apple for MT.
    I had some cakes to bake and Icing to organise etc so DAD said he'd have Jack for the day which worked out well cause my brother was also over there cleaning out the pond and Jack absolutely loves him.
    I had some Crackers and Smoked cheese while I was there...OMG it just taste so much better when you haven't had it in so long!!!
    Daisy and I went and did some groceries then We shared a kids meal from the chiken shop so i had 3 nuggets and 1/2 chips. Not something i would usuanlly give daisy but it was a treat.
    i WILL admit i has a couple of easter eggs (those hunting ones) and they were so good! I needed that week of no sugar to get my taste back! haha def worth the wait.
    At mums when i went to get Jack i made Pasta and Bol and i just felt so yuk and full y this stage i just had like 1 tbsp of pasta and some bol.
    Hubby came home and kept offering me food (good food) and i just said no.

    It was a bit of a weird day and usually i will plan to have my free day on a Saturday cause mum and I usually go out for the day shopping or domething unless i have something on the Sunday....saying that i will be having it Sunday next week cause it's mothers day and i imagine we'll do something

    Well I weighed myself after the 3 day detox and had lost over 3kgs and then today was my weigh in day and it said I had only lsot 500g - so I am thinking the glasses of wine I had last night did it so I had a PO day today so hopefully by Saturday I will have a better loss.
    So Janene if you want to update my ticker to say 500g loss in 5 days otherwise leave and I will update on Saturday morning.
    Taa.

    Setting my goals

    Post  _jo_ on Mon May 09, 2011 4:07 am

    Ok I have been thinking about goals and important datees through the year i would like to look nice for (or need to!). I guess i haven't got myself on a roll yet so unsure of my average losses so for now i though i would just put down some dates that i am doing things and then after a few weeks i can get a better understanding on how my body is going to loose weight and i can set some numbers.

    21 May 2011 - My Birthday
    24 June 2011 - Going to a concert with hubby
    6 August 2011 - Family photos at the kids childcare
    September - Week holiday at Caloundra, Jack's 3rd Birthday & Hubby's Birthday
    25 Dec 2011 - Christmas Day!! ... so far my approx goal is 89.9kg but i would be happy just to be under 100kg
    10 March 2012 - Daisy's Birthday ..Love to be 79kg or lower!

    So thats me.
    I';ve just realised my kids have NEVER seen me below 110kg. I hope they love their new mummy just as much and maybe even more!!
