Weight Loss Update

I haven't spoken about my weight loss in awhile.

So the question you're all asking is probably, how is it going?
The answer is, pretty damn well!

This morning I weighed 104.3kg, thats a loss of 47kg since August 2014.
I can now walk into a clothing store and buy from the NON-plus size section! That's right, I'm in size 16-18! I just can't believe it! I was trying clothing on in the non-plus size section and having to get a smaller size! I'm not into Jeansweast jeans yet... but I'm pretty damn close. They have Curvy Jeans, which are awesome and I probably would fit in them... but I want to get into a pair of their SUPER SKINNY jeans! My whole life I have wanted to wear skinny jeans... but it's been very hard to find them in my size... now I'm getting closer.
My bra size has gone from 26DD, to 16C... I'm not even worried about the loss of boob size... I just excited I can now wear pretty sexy bras (I understand that there is pretty sexy bras in size 26DD, but they were hard to find in town... or very expensive! YAY for $12 BONDS bras!!!)
I have teal hair now too (you have probably seen the photos on instagram to my other blog) and it's awesome. People either love it... or don't say anything!!
I haven't jumped on the exercise train yet... I tried, with boxing... but I got sick and didn't go to one... then I had an appointment, and then I was sick again... so I have missed heaps, and just don't feel it anymore.

I'm heading to New Zealand in September (like I don’t talk about it enough!!) I'll be there for 20ish days. Thats the longest I've been away from my family... and the futherest I've been away from home... and not to forget A WHOLE DIFFERENT COUNTRY! I'm pretty much have travel and New Zealand on the brain... every time I'm online, I'm on Pinterest looking at photos of NZ, or looking at packing and travel tips... I've gone crazy! It's way to early for me to even be worrying about this sort of stuff yet... I don't even have a passport yet... (I'm close... just need the money... and the interview!)

I'm very excited about 2015. I can't believe it's March already!

Exercise Goals

On my about me page, I have a list of Exercise Goals (see below)
Exercise Goals
  • Start riding my bike
  • Take up boxing
  • Start swimming
  • Join roller derby team
Well, it's time for an update!
As you already know, I have a bike. I'm riding it a little, but not too much, but I will be riding it more.
And... last Tuesday, I started Boxing.
I'm going to a group boxing fitness class, thats held at the beach. It's great.
I've only done one class... and afterwards I was exhausted and my arms hurt, but it was a good hurt!
So I have started 50% of my exercise goals!
I do plan to add more.
I would love to play Soccer in the winter, but I'm yet to find out much about the local Soccer League.

Next Friday, I have my first follow-up appointment with my Surgeon, as well as an appointment with my Perth dietician and the exercise physiologist. I'm excited, but also a little afraid. What if I have done something wrong... lost too much weight too fast?? I don't really know what to expect.

I will keep you in the loop :D

Christmas Weight!

It's time to get rid of the Christmas season weight.
Even after weight loss surgery I still managed to put weight on during the Christmas period.
I'm sure it's not food related, but more the fact that Im not working and just lazying around the house!

my weight, as of 1st January, is 118.6kg

If you don't follow me on instagram, and you love photos of cats :) follow @princessgeek86 :)
As mentioned in Emmys post, we are going to try post what we eat under the hashtag #fatgeekfit on instagram.

The plan is to live 2015, healthier, happier and more active.

Here's to 2015!

Oh... um... hi!

So Molly introduced me here forever ago and I promptly decided that my love for junk food and laziness was much more fun. I have since decided that this is not the case and that it is time to reclaim myself. I've done this before so know that I can do it again, it's just making all the good things into habits again.

First thing is the eating - on my instagram (@cupcake185) I *plan* on posting a collage a day of what I have eaten using the hashtag #fatgeekfit - I do believe Molly might be joining in on this one.

Current meal plan is a smoothies for breakfast, fruit for morning tea, lean meat & salad or just a beefed out salad or veggies for lunch, veggie sticks and light dip for afternoon tea then smaller portions for dinner. I think I did okay today. I slept through breakfast then had salmon and salad for lunchfast, carrot & celery with home made dip for afternoon tea then chicken and salad wrap for dinner. My treats were one small class of coke and one snack sized piece of chocolate. I also guzzled lots of water.

Here's the SFW before picture, my first goal is for my Fiona & Cake shirt to not be so tight! :D

Catch you all later!
Let's kick 2015 in the pants!

Last night I had a anxiety attack over food.
I can feel myself starting to avoid food more and more.
It's one of the side effects of weight loss surgery, but it's very rare.
I feel weird even thinking about it.
It's always been an illness you relate to super skinny people.
But it's not, over weight and obese people can get it too.
Food is a very important part of life, especially for me, I'm not capable of eating much, so I need to be even more aware of what I'm putting in my mouth.
So not chips, and chocolates!

I'm avoiding going into my kitchen.
It smells, and there is rubbish everywhere
The dishes are unwashed and the fridge is full of cake, and leftover take away food.
The pantry is full of biscuits.
I'm sure there is food there suitable for me
But it depresses me, that I have to push past all the food I love to find it.
I don't have enough energy to put that much effort in.
And it's not much effort.

Maybe I should just suck it up and clean the kitchen
Not much of the mess is mine. Some of it is.
I feel like I shouldn't have too.
But I feel like that if I don't, it won't get done.

I don't have any support.
I don't want to ask for it.
I shouldn't expect it to just be there.
I can't expect my family to change their lives to fit with me.

Christmas Came Early!

I received an early Christmas present!
A bike!
Isn't it beautiful!?
I went for a short ride yesterday!
When I finished my legs were jelly
and my butt hurt so much!
But I can't wait to ride again.
I haven't ridden a bike in at least 15 years!
I had forget how it feels to have the wind in your face!
And strangely, I'm looking forward to my first fall.
It's a little weird. I'm not going out there to intentionally injure myself
but I will be very proud of bruises and scraps I get when I fall off.

My weight loss has been very slow over the past 2 weeks.
I've only lost 500grams. It's my bodies way of telling me it's time to exercise.
Hense the rush to get a bike.
Mum, and Dad helped me pay for it.
I was going to put it on layby and pay it off, but they finished paying it off for me.
Plus, I took Dad with me to the bike shop (because he knows people) and I received a considerable discount! (YAY! "the people you know!")

Check out my weight loss graph!
Look at the downward-ness!!!
