Hi everyone. I can't sleep (it's 11pm and I'm on my phone). I'll jump on the computer in the morning to put everyone's stats on post1.

I had a 'free' day today because we went to an Asian street food day over in the next town. But on top of that dh ordered pizzas when we got home. So I are more than I intended to on this 'free' day.

What worries me is how much I can eat without feeling full.
Back to my low carb no sugar tomorrow though.

Today is my free day as well - kids are going to the free daycare day I get once a month and I'm going shopping and will probably indulge in a meal or two that is consumed in peace while still hot.

Asian street food and pizza sounds like heaven, so excuse the drool over here. Good luck getting back on board!

I hear ya on this one! When I am tired I crave sugar because I think my body just wants the fast energy, and I am too exhausted to exercise. It's a bad combination! I really enjoy exercise and I am an avid runner, but my baby's poor sleep means my exercise happens very sporadically. I'll get myself into a good rhythm and then suddenly Isla will be waking 8 times a night and I won't exercise again for a few weeks. Ugh.

As long as I can manage it with my husband's schedule, I'm finding I'm always willing to go to yoga class even if I'm exhausted. It's been helping to have that as a backup, since I do not feel like running without sleep! Knowing worst case I can sit in child's pose for a moment during class means I'm willing... and a moment to be free from kids is always rejuvenating!

So I'm back

So my weight last week was 85.4kg after loosing 3 kgs
This week we are starting off at 84.2kg a loss of 1.2kg
Total loss of 4.2kgs in 2 weeks !!! I'm delighted with that start

I'd be thrilled to get into the 70s for November so that's my goal !!!! So excited for this . I think this time I actually might do it !!!! I'm in this for the long haul once that number keeps coming down ,

I am definetly giving myself a free day a week .... Rest of the time low carb , no sugar .
Lets do this girls I already feel better about myself for even doing something about it .

83.2kg first goal is to be in the 79's

School holidays here at the moment which seems to make staying on track very hard, going to have to keep my eye on the prize!

I'm having my glass of wine, oops! I really think that if I cut out my glass of wine every night I would probably lose weight without doing anything else, but it is just so nice and relaxing to sit in the hot tub with a glass of wine after putting Isla to bed. It's my favourite time of the day!

Went for a good run yesterday with a friend and Isla in the jogging stroller. I hate running with the stroller and would rather run on my treadmill while Isla is napping, but I really want Isla to grow up seeing her parents being active and viewing physical activity as a part of daily life. So I suck it up and push the damn stroller so she can be a part of our daily exercise.

Every day I take the dog for a 5 km hike with Isla in the hiking backpack, so that's at least some gentle physical activity even if I don't have the energy to do something more intense.

I have done my core exercises three days in a row now, yay! I have been doing them with Isla and she thinks it is really funny to climb all over me while I am on the floor. I injured my back in January and it is still not completely healed, I would say it's about 90% back to normal and I really want it to be completely healed before getting pregnant again so I really need to focus on doing my exercises every day.

Great job! You seem like the most motivated one in the group at the moment!

I have a hard time with sugar because I like milk and sugar in my coffee, and I drink a lot of coffee (but it's almost always decaf). I am trying stevia in my coffee instead of sugar but it does give it a bit of a weird flavour that is taking some time to get used to.

Hi ladies, can I join?
Start weight: 68.8kg
Waist: Not going to measure because it will make me depressed and then I'll eat chocolate
Goal for October: Lose 3kg, cut down on sugar (massive problem for me), exercise more.

I'm pretty sedentary at the moment but I'm planning to go back to netball this week (I haven't been since before the summer), do couch to 5k (and get out to do it 3x a week) and do kettle bell workouts at home 3x a week. We'll see
