Back on the wagon

Only gained 1.5kg in the past month, which isn’t terrible.

Time to start feeling good again.

Let’s do this!

HIII!!

I still exist!!!

Work had been mental I have zero brain space for much else.

Will get back to regular posting soon!
I’m still on track, although have gained half a Kg but it’s fluctuating at the moment.

Love you all, you’re all awesome!

How.

How on earth did I lose what I gained last week and then some?

Total loss this week is 1.1 I don’t even know.

Total now is 6.8kg!!

Seriously what???

Blow your MIND” Tomato Basil Pasta! - No Straining, just Stirring Throw it all in the pot, INCLUDING the uncooked Pasta, and cook! - Bring it to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. The starch leaches out of the pasta and makes a rich, warm sauce for the noodles. The other ingredients cook right along with the pasta Ingredients: 12 ounces pasta (Shown  Linguine) 1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with liquid ( I used zesty red pepper flavor) 1 large sweet onion, cut in julienne strips 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves 2 large sprigs basil, chopped 4 1/2 cups vegetable broth (regular broth and NOT low sodium) 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Optional Parmesan cheese for garnish Directions: Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, in a large stock pot. Pour in vegetable broth. Sprinkle on top the pepper flakes and oregano. Drizzle top with oil. Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated – I left about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot – but you can reduce as desired . Season to taste with salt and pepper , stirring pasta several times to distribute the liquid in the bottom of the pot. Serve garnished with Parmesan cheese if desired.

Also this is a full body shot I took on Friday. I haven’t taken one of these in months and months and months. Even though sometimes the number on the scales does funny things, your body will still change. :)

I know it’s an unflattering shirt on my new body but I wanted to wear the exact same thing in progress photos. That 1x shirt used to fit very tight as you can see.
*Before (August 19, 2013): 238 lb., waist: 50, hips: 56
*During (March 21, 2014): 158 lb., waist: 31, hips: 39.5


Incredible!! Well done!

Well then!

Somehow I’ve still managed to lose 800g this week! Total now is 6.5kg’s! That’s massive!!!

I will admit, there have been beers and not the best food.. It’s been a bit of an off week. And yet somehow I’ve still lost weight. I think my body is finally getting used to this weight loss thing!

I know everyone has their off weeks and I was so tempted to just skip weigh in today. I’m glad I didn’t!

Feeling awesome!!
