I just don't get it

Doing everything most things right and I go up in weight to 118.4 kgs.......I so don't get my body!!!!!!

The only thing I have not really managed to do this week is to get the water intake in, and do as much exercise as I had hoped, but I did get some in. I am so not sure what is going on, but I will keep going, as if I give up, It would just pile on!!

Anyway, off to get more done on the conference organising, getting to the final couple of weeks now. I only have two full weeks at work. Katie will arrive on Nov 11th and I am so looking forward to being able to spend some time with her.

Have a fantabulous day!!!!!

Track your progress.....

So here I am tracking my progress, I wasn't going to do it, but then I picked up Katie Jays Small Bites book, and Today's topic is just that.....Track your progress. 

So I thought I had better. 

So over the last couple of days, since I posted about getting back on track, I have actually 95% of the time stuck to it. I had a couple of rice cookies on Tuesday night and yesterday was on track. 

My water consumption is still too low and the exercise is just not happening. But small steps as they say and certainly in the right direction and I have done my typical drop 600 gms already, but now it will most likely stay that way for  the rest of the week, which usually gets me down, and then I fall off track. But, I am not going to do that!!!!!

Things are coming together nicely for the conference. I can't believe Katie arrives in New Zealand in just over two weeks!!!!! So, if you are waiting to register!!!!!!! DO IT!!!!!!!!!

Restarts today

Yup - I am restarting today, healthy eating and getting back 100% on track.

My boss pointed out to me on Friday that I have told her I have gained weight but that I think that I will only lose a portion of it..........she asked me why I think that, as surely if I put my mind to it I can do anything!!!!!!!!

So today, back 100% on track with both Gluten Free and with my WLS eating plan, the water and the cutting out the junk. I will also be back on track with exercise soon, just working on that plan. 

Anyway, this morning, 

Pills taken, 
1 cup of tea with milk and sweetener (not sugar)
About to head to work for the day, Protein shake at around 10:30, and then lunch at 2pm, which will be 1 orange, 2 corn thins and a small can of tuna with lemon pepper. 

I will have my calcium

Dinner when I get home will be 

Beef Hot pot casserole (in the slow cooker now) 

Maybe a little mashed potatoe (but just a little)

And I will get my water intake in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is only downwards from 117.5 kgs (this mornings weight)

So here it is.....drumrolls not needed

My weight is sitting at 116.8 kgs as at this morning. Now this is just soooooooooo not acceptable, considering I got down to 101 kgs before getting sick with my Auto Immune Liver Disease. 

Sure, I am still on immune suppressants and steroids, but that doesn't account for the garbage I have been putting in. So I am getting back on that train......actually I am concentrating for the moment being Gluten Free and trying to reduce carbs. (having much more protein)

I tried a recipe that Lynda had on her blog, a pizza base that is made from cauliflower and it is not bad. I don't think I cooked it at quite the right temperature as it did not really go crispy, but certainly it was fine, and you get so much more flavour from the toppings as it is not over powered by the bread. I had chicken and bacon on mine. 

The other thing I am having is cauliflower rice.....(the first stage of the pizza) instead of regular rice when it comes to curries etc. We had it tonight, I didn't miss the rice at all!!!!!!!!!! I did still have one poppadoum, but as it is made from Lentil flour, it is fine for me.

I am planning on getting out and moving more, nothing drastic, just using what is around me, ie the footpath and walking tracks around here and if it is wet then and old WW DVD I have. I am going to be trying to record what I am doing daily....not adding calories or anything, just making me more aware, and if I  gain or stay the same I can look back at it . 

So today was a bit of a mixed bag as I made cheesecake for dessert

Eat Me Protein Shake with yoghurt and milk

Morning tea
Two Wheat Free Rice Cookies 

1 small can of lemon pepper tuna
2 corn thins
1 kiwifruit 
1 pear

Afternoon Tea
Two Wheat Free Rice Cookies

Chicken, chickpea and lentil Curry
1 poppadom
2 tablespoons of rice cauliflower
1 small piece of raspberry cheesecake made with GF biscuits
1 tablespoon of low fat boysenberry ice-cream
1 handful of salted potato chips
1 coke zero can 
1 small glass of grape juice. 

Now I have major hiccups and I am off to bed. Waiting for my you  tube video to post, but it won't be ready till the morning. So good night, and happy dreams. !!

I have an idea.

I have a huge many of you know, I really want to go to the next WLSFA Meet & Greet in Las Vegas next year in May, but with the budget the way it is, that is unlikely to happen!!! So how do I make it happen!!!! How do I get to be here

I have been thinking....I am useless at saving, but what can I do to get here, that is not only raising money but also getting healthier and I thought about, what if I was to find people willing to sponsor me to get back on track and shed this extra weight that has crept on. Maybe sponsoring me $10 per kg I manage to get off. I would only need 10 people to do that if I was successful in getting back down to 99 kgs, and it would pay the airfares!!!!!

So I am really thinking about doing that. Will see what happens over the next couple of weeks, as I plan if it is possible. I guess if I can find enough people, I could even make it $5 per kg, and if I could find a corporate sponsor who would be willing to help would be fantastic!!!!

I would love some ideas about how I can make it to Las Vegas people!!!
