89,6 kg


Remember this entry, way back in January? I'd talked about the diet I was going on.

Well, two months later, I've lost 6 kg (around 14 1/2 pounds) and am seeing the "8" in front of the number for the first time in years. ^_____^ So I now weigh around 197 1/2 pounds, instead of 212!

Yes, I still have a bit to go, but I'm really very pleased with myself! And it's still no problem to continue. The switch in my mind has stayed on the right side, despite book fairs and conventions, dinner invitations and the occasional take-out. I always choose what to eat very carefully, so that I don't fall back into bad habits.

I feel much better about myself! Removed all the large-size jeans and pants from my closet. I'm giving them away to charity, to make sure that I don't "grow into them" again...

I know I promised recipes. I have them here, but the conversions are taking time. And I've been down with a really bad cold for the last week or so (brought it with me from the Leipzig book fair. >.< ), so I really haven't felt like doing anything except whatever absolutely *needed* to be done.

I'll get better, never fear! ;)

Thank you! ^___^

I *did* permit myself a trip to the local sushi place once a week. But by now I can't eat more than two inside-out rolls (they cut them up thin, so that would make 16 pieces in all) at a time. That's how much my eating capability has been reduced! Thank the Gods! :)

Congratulations!!! You should be very proud. That's a big accomplishment.

Thank you! I'm just glad it's working so well. Now, if I could only apply the same discipline to spending money... >.>

That is very impressive, particularly that you were able to stay on it during the fairs and conventions. As rushed as you are, it's easy to give in and just grab what comes to hand.

I always say I'll do better and then can't seem to find the energy to care. How is the hubby situation now? Any closer to a settlement?

I really had a problem at the fair, because the food there was horrible. All greasy and mostly fast food type things. The only thing that really was good was the soft cream (I don't know what it is in English - like cottage cheese, but smoother...) with fruits. I had that several times. It filled me up and was still healthy.

Hubby's starting to move out, slowly. >.< He's found a place over at a friend's house, but he's taking his time about getting his stuff there. The new appartment is very small, so he really has to choose what to put in there. But he's doing it, so that's something.

I have to get the paperwork together for our pre-divorce agreement in the next weeks, so then we're more or less set for our separation year. :)

You go, girl! Great job! The last time I lost any weight, I had a stomach problem for a week! ^o^ Your way looks better. ^___~

Thanks! :)

Did you lose weight *because* of the stomach problems, or did you have stomach problems because of losing weight?

These days, when I overeat, or eat stuff that's too rich or too fatty (like fast food), I feel really bad. When I eat healthy, I feel quite good. :)

Yeah, unfortunately. Bit of stomach flu type problem, so of COURSE it all came right back. *sigh*
Mar. 25th, 2009 10:14 pm (UTC)
Oh, how lovely! Just what you wanted, right? >.<

I'm just glad that this is working out so well. I really do need to lose weight, since my joints and my back tend to protest quite a bit, when I weigh too much. And, as you know, I'm not getting younger... ;)

I can do it. ^^
Mar. 25th, 2009 11:04 pm (UTC)
Yeah, if you figure out that 'younger' thing... let me know! :P
Mar. 26th, 2009 09:08 am (UTC)
Oh, I definitely will! :) Haven't managed it yet, though... ^^
