Hi

4wks is up official weigh in 140.1kgs recorded.

The best thing Iíve noticed is now you can see all the digits on my signature lol whereas before they were all bunched up ahahaha - oh and 11.7kgs in the first month is awesome.

My pants are definately fitting better and the 4XL top I bought a couple days before starting actually zips up - itís a bit snug around the stomach area still but it does up thatís definately a win, especially with winter kicking into gear.

Iíve not deviated and Iíve been patient and my goal the next 4 wks is to get out of the 140s then get closer to the 120s

Slowly but surely it will happen

Just

Hi

I have a single child whose 23yrs old this year - yesterday he went clothes shopping for himself and thought he would buy his mummy a brand new hooded winter jacket. He bought a size 16 (bless his cotton socks). Now Iím no where near a size 16 yet and he kept saying Iíll take it back and get a bigger size (cause my arms went in and thatís where it stopped lol). I said no I want this exact one please, great incentive and thanked him.

I actually have specific outfits for specific sizes - MORE GOALS. It got added to my special size 16 outfit and he was very impressed by my choices. So even if that jacket doesnít fit THIS winter it will definately for next winter - he was very supportive when I told him what Iím doing and very pleased for me, I love it when the family gets on board - and I promised the first person that will see me in my new jacket would be him!!!!

Hey Justa,

Itís nice when the kids give back isnít it but I think you will have to change it if you want to wear it next winter - to a 12. It may seem light years away but it will go fast. The first time I did cohens I bought a lovely dress in 3 different sizes I loved it so much, and I only wore the largest once, the weight came off so fast I missed the others entirely sometimes itís hard to see where we will be, but itís really a short journey looking back from the end

Keep up the good work

Hey Connie

It sure is - heís always giving but like most males doesnít understand female sizing 😂 all good though.

I havenít bought any new clothes these are just clothes I either didnít quite make it to last time or only wore it once. Iím far too cheap to buy new clothes and prefer op shops, especially now as I shrink my clothing needs will and Iím not going to continuously buy lol Iíll wait till my tops float off me and my pants refuse to stay up


Iím enjoying this round 2 it seems to be a lot easier then the first time for some reason? Maybe itís cause Iím not stressed about it? Maybe itís because I know given time itís going to happen?

Whatever Ďití is - long may it continue - small win today I can scratch Ďthat spotí on my back yippee!!!! Iím just waiting for an itch now lol

Hi

Iím suspect of my scales!! I couldnít weigh in my usual spot today due to various obstacles in the way and so I moved the scales to another spot - stood on them and a completely random weight came up??

Iíve changed the battery so itís not that, so I moved spots and another different number came up? Iím weighing on hard surfaces so I donít get it? I might have to buy another scale and see what that says LOL.

Itís very mysterious - will update with the good or bad news once I can figure out what my weight actually is - might have to go to the drs office cause theirs is correct

Hi Justa,
Even with a hard floor, if there is the slightest bit of unevenness, the readings will be suss !!

Make sure that there is no wobble wherever you site the scales. Or go back to the old position, so that any error will be the same each time.

Hi,

Scales are actually fine - my brother and sister both work at different gyms and I used their scales and they were about the same as my scale and so since I started on these scales Iím going by what they say which is in line with the weight loss I was expecting for this next 4wks - so Iím happy.

I actually loathe expecting things to go a certain way because you could be let down and itís really hard to motivate yourself if you are constantly expecting too much.

Speaking of expecting too much - I heard from my consultant for the first time since I started (currently on wk 5) and her email said the best mentor I could have was myself (true to a degree) - but Iím guessing that means donít call me Iíll call you - so Iím going to email her back and remind her that she was suppose to be in touch with me every week for at least the first 4wks. As per the contract we have with each other and see what she says about that

This will not be a take my money and run programme

Hi

Sunday is my baking day - I like to bake on Sundayís not sure why it just seems like such a lax day - chill out, bake and binge watch a tv series. I made muffins last week and they were gone before they even cooled down lol - thatís a sign of good baking ahaha.

Iím going to attempt to make pumpkin soup - not for myself but for the family and maybe some choc chunk cookies, Iím not tempted at all with the baking. Iím too far in Ďthe zoneí now. Iíve got my youngest niece here and she doesnít mind being my taste tester lol.

End of week 5, beginning of week 6 is on Wednesday - canít wait

Default Re: Round 2 - and here we go again

Hi

For some reason I was focused on the end weight yesterday - which is 61-64kgs? When I was 12 (which is the first time I was literally forced to weigh myself) I was 76kgs and thatís the lightest weight ever recorded in my lifetime. I try not to focus on the end goal although itís in my face whenever I record my weight on the Ďmy weightí app - it seems (right now) a lifetime away. I take comfort where I can find it which is in the completed diaries of the 3? Females that have done it before me. Iíve already decided that Iím not paying for a new program cause Iím hoping that if I donít make it ALL THE WAY in 12mths that I should only be a couple kgs off it?

And Iím not forking our another $1k for 2-5kgs thatís for sure - I try desperately not to think about that though and would prefer to take it day by day - I guess itís mainly because of the lack of support so far from my clinic.

Happy to plod on by myself though - lucky I seem to have loads of faith this time round whereas the first time I needed to see proof every step of the way

I see a sense of calmness in your posts this time, Just. Whatever has happened, hold tight to it, 'cos it is doing you the world of good.

I witnessed Asy and Faithy shed huge amounts of weight each. They were both "on song" from start to finish, and, if my memory serves me correctly, they had both completed the Plan AND the Refeed in less than 12 months. Others might have taken a little longer, but these were often older females who had been big all of their lives and it took some more shifting. Both Asy and Faithy were both around 38 - 40 years of age.

We know that "new fat" moves much more quickly, thus those who are repeating Cohens may well find they are able to shed weight more easily the second time around. May it be so for you too, Just. Your attitude sounds great, and I suspect the reward for that good attitude will be to emulate those two, and be done with both Plan and Refeed before the year is out. Rock on Just.....

Koh

Hi

Thanks Koh - always a beacon of light in what seems an ever lasting tunnel.

Your right though - my mojo is high and continuously glowing!!! I had a small win yesterday - at work we have smart rooms, which are rooms with Skype pretty much and I hate them with a passion because - the seats in there have arms (MOST of them). When I go into one of these for a meeting I always scan the room for a seat with no arms. For some reason my employer believes in the Ďone size fits allí mantra - which is not true in our workplace - and probably every workplace. Anyways the other larger lady in our team got it and I was gutted - meant that I would have to contend with a n armed chair. Sat down, expected the worst most uncomfortable meeting ever and fit like a glove lol.

In fact there was space between me and the arms??? Well I never........ most of that meeting I was sitting back sitting forward - to the other side they probably thought I needed to go toilet but I was enjoying the freedom of this chair ahahahaha - itís the first time in 2yrs I didnít have to squash myself into one of those chairs and sit uncomfortably for an hour or so - I didnít even pay much attention to the content of the meeting. I was in my happy place -

Moral of the story - keep on keeping on - the rewards will sneak up on you

End of week 5 beginning of week 6 tomorrow yippee - another one done 100% DF

Just

...and I really like that saying !! Sneak up on you indeed - and in the most surprising ways.

You already posted last month in the "Physical Changes" thread, and already it is time for an update from you (about chairs getting bigger !!)

And, here's another thread that holds a bit of comedy - save it for a coffee break (or ten - it is also a well-loved topic):-

Morning

First of all a moment to remember our ANZACs and the unselfish sacrifice they made for us.

End of week 5, beginning of week 6 for me and Iíve left the 150s & the 140s in my dust. Weight this morning is 137.9kgs so a loss of 2.2kgs for the week.

5wks has gone so quick and Iím glad I made the decision to come back onto the Cohenís program and finally shift this weight - not shift but lose, never been so glad to see something leave, like the creepy uncle u see once in a blue moon at a family gathering - goodbye, sayonara, adios.

Thankfully no one has noticed and to be honest I donít expect them too until around the 30kg mark Iím very good at hiding my body, mastered that over my lifetime and so Iím hoping to keep that going for a lot longer yet so I can concentrate on me. The pressure that comes with explaining iS too much for now. Lucky itís winter so I can wear a poncho even ahahaha 🤔

Talking Re: Round 2 - and here we go again

Hi

Had possibly the worst sleep ever last night - and all I was worried about was my HGH levels - lol. I turned on my side and instantly knew it was a bad position to sleep in but stayed like that for about 5hrs and now Iím sore - good job. Another lesson on listening to your body - ah well only one thing for it Iíll have to go get a massage 😂

I had to get up early today to weigh out some meat cause I was too lazy to do it yesterday, regret that so bad.

Procrastination is not your friend - my pants are looking quite baggy but Iím still not going to buy new clothes or try a smaller size - I am leaving that until a 20kg loss or until they fall down whatever comes last - To be honest I know Iím losing I just donít notice it yet I mean physically. In the mirror I still see day 1 so I donít pay any attention to it lol - I feel really good though ! Positive and way more energetic. The things that use to be so hard are now too easy

OMG I just noticed I can almost zip up my work jacket 😳 - another thing thatís come up in stealth mode fwah!!!

Hi

So I have a Ďfat lady tshirtsí - all black non-sticky and stretched the the absolute max lol. Now the bloating has largely gone from my stomach my shirts look hilarious lol a gust of wind lifts it up - so to counter that I wear my jacket (which doesnít zip up yet) but itís a good and effective counter measure for now.

So glad Iím in the 130s again after so long - I noticed my security card doesnít face me when Iím sitting down anymore and it sits flush with my desk - it means though that it gets jammed between my body and the desk a lot - strange problem to have but a good indication of where the weight is coming off.

Underwear drops below my bottom quite easily as well now LOL as long as my pants stay up Iím going to do zero about it😂

Hi

Iíve had to go up another notch with my watch itís so annoying when it doesnít sit right lol - and the charm bracelet I bought myself doesnít sit properly either - small price to pay. The charm bracelet is my reward to myself and I put on one charm per 5kgs lost so itís already got 2 on it and the third is just around the corner.

Thereís so many pretty charms out there and they are cheap - itís pretty much a constant reminder of what Iím doing as Iím not taking it off til Iíve reached goal. I have 87kgs total to lose so thatís 17 charms 😂. I might need another bracelet but Iím cool with that, Iím not really a jewellery type girl but am looking forward to filling it up

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend -

Just

Hi

So much for not liking photos - I just took a look at my phone and Iíve taken 35 photos of myself since I started 😂 considering this is only week6 thatís more selfies in 1.5mths then from the last 4yrs👍

There is method to my madness though - last time I made the mistake of taking about 10 photos over 33wks which in hindsight was not enough photographic evidence to keep myself accountable. Iíve learned from that mistake now and since I have no full length mirrors in my whole house - they are all taken at work lol. Itís so important - as a sutttle, accessible, personal and private reminder of where i began and the slow and steady progress i have made so far - even after 6wks I can SEE Iím way better off now and am super motivated to keep going. I actively try to find motivation in everything.

Roll on week 7 - Iím ready for you!!!

Just

Hi Just,
Smart idea. A photograph says so much. And your comment about taking more photos put me in mind of probably the best photo sequence I can recall on here.

They were a photo-GRAPH created by SassyK. Take a look at what she did. It helped to motivate her all the way to goal. But she didn't start it until she was already well on her way - still, the final result is quite staggering.

http://newyouforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4550

It is a long thread, but if you want to skip to the finale, go here:-
http://newyouforum.com/forum/showthr...231#post162231

She had a long way from start to finish too, and she also includes some "before" shots (after she reaches goal - I think reaching goal made her so proud of her achievement that she wanted to share the whole journey).

It was a joy tonight to check out her photo diary once more. I hope you gain an insight or two from it as well, Just.

Koh

Thanks Koh

I remember sassy from last time and I remember her diary forgot about the pics but just another motivating factor about this forum -

I was baking choc Chunk cookies yesterday for the family and itís so easy to just lick ur fingers lol - I almost did it about 3x, and the house smelled so good after that baking I had to go for a walk. I wouldnít of deviated and ploughed into the baking but the smell is so divine itís cruel - pure cruelty. I keep telling myself this is not forever and that helps.

So life is starting to get in the way - I have a group booking at a Brazilian bbq restaurant in May and my best friends birthday in June and a party bus on Friday. On the one hand itís lucky itís winter cause the social calendar takes a bit of a break - thank goodness itís oretty much one of the main reasons I started when I did - itís colder, can put more layers on and hide - then in summer spread my new wings like a monarch 😂🦋

Off to work we go!! The start of another week
