Talking Mellow & Laura's Race!

So after many many comments that we should start a thread for our challenge against/with eachother here it is!

I Laura, take you Megan, to be my arch weight loss enemy. To challenge and support, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for fatter, for skinnier, in sickness or in health, to yell at if you cheat and to cheer when you succeed! With all my water and fruit, I make this pledge to you.

Megan, you better make this pledge to me or ill be angry haha

We need to set our first goal. I believe as per our discussions tonight that is 8kgs in 4 weeks... I know alot of people will think that this is alot... but we will both be happy even if we dont make it just to know we gave it everything we had!

Eight Kgs... Four weeks...

Starts on Thursday?? Please confirm haha

Haha... best pledge ever!

I concur that goal one is... 8kg's by Thursday 27th May 2010, then we cam review and set the next goal/challenge.

Due to my deviations last week, my weight loss this week has been rather slow... but it's still a loss and very close to double digits... very very close. So my ticker wont move much tomorrow... but you just watch it ... it will slide down so quickly!

ps - Just got home from the shops and avoided the food court.... About to cook lunch and a whole heap of soups, zucchini fritters and paprika chicken of course!

I'm did my first Zumba class last night and tonight I'm going to see Xavier Rudd... so some more dancing is in order!

Here's a little something I think we can both relate to:

Haha glad you liked my pledge! haha

im looking forward to weighing! My scales will be up and my ticker will be moving back instead of forward. But then we will have an accurate idea of where we are... i think we will be at probably very very close weights if not ill be a little more than you...

Very proud of you for avoiding the food court After all you did promise me! :P

Well done on you first Zumba class im glad you enjoyed it!

Im going to cats tonight... we were spose to go out for dinner but Im not going, im just going to have my dinner then go to the show

Love that quote!

Pffpt... I doubt you will be more! I was only down 600g this morning so.... I'll be lucky if it moves overnight as TOM is due this weekend! But it should be gone in time for our first weigh-in!

I'm thinking of adding that quote to my signature!

I better go and do my cook up before I pick Wills up from day care!

I'm going to try Creamy Zucchini & Basil Soup for lunch! Delish!

My zucchini frittatas were an epic fail! More my fault than the recipe!

However.... the soup! OMG...... delicious. I had it for lunch plus an extra batch for tomorrow.
I wish we could have cheese everyday! I'd happily eat that soup!

1.5ltr's down.... 100% deviation free!

So.... I am still 200g off a major goal! Boo Hiss..... but man oh man is it close.
Next Thursday for sure!

Bel... I reckon we should make that appointment and book it in for next weekend!

I have also decided to stop weighing myself daily. I'm only going to do it on a Thursday morning and that is final.

Went to see Xavier Rudd last night.... best night ever! Went with my very best friend who is also Willows "Rad Ma" (we call her this instead of God Mother). I thought for sure I would have stimulated my body into over drive last night... with all my dancing!

Bel - My stomach and back were sore ... so were my legs, but I also did Pilates in the morning, so I'm not too sure what was a result of what!
Can't wait for Saturday!!!!!!

Not much to report today, I went to cats last night... It was good, but I was expecting it to be alot better! I much preferred chicago and Phantom of the opera! Last night chris ate chicken treat and drank bourbon and I didnt have any, drank my water, and had mince and veggies for dinner...

Today for breaky I had egg with tomato and mushrooms... onto my second bottle of water today which is good for me as I struggle to drink in the mornings... I have steak and cabbage for lunch! Lookin forward to it I love cabbage haha

Gonna try and have an apple or two and try n get rid of some weight haha

Hope everyone has a good day

Ooooh, I'm hoping for a big drop next week! At least 1.7kg's... that's my goal and hope... at least!
I've had 2 very slow weeks, my body is bound to give way.

Finally home from walking Willow to the ducks and back. A nice 2km stroll.
It was so hot though! I got a tan line!

All my clothes seem to be fitting a little big but I don't want to go and buy any clothes either! My smaller clothes are still too small....well, they fit...but it isn't pretty! So I'm just chugging along in my fat clothes for now.

Day 2 - 1ltr of water down & 100% Deviation Free!

Whoop!

I still have a pair on today lol but they look abit silly! Im going to go tonight and buy a size 14, and a size 12... i want to get the same ones im wearing now, because Ive had the 20, 18, im wearing the 16 and there falling off me! So i want to keep going, cuz if i change jeans the size will be different :P im such a loser haha

Day 2 - 2.25Litres of water down, about to have a coke zero with my lunch... 100% deviation free!

Last night I went shopping at carousel with one of my best mates, I got a pedicure while she got her nails done, so im feeling abit girlie today! Got some new jeans too... DRUMROLL Please! Size 14. YEOW! I have them on today! I feel ultra skinny haha and my bum looks so good in them hahahahahah I also bought a size 12 of the same jeans as a little goal for myself! I have had these exact jeans in a size 20, 18, 16 and now a 14! so pretty happy about that!

Feeling confident that I will deviation free all weekend, Ive sort of planned my meals out for the weekend just so i dont get caught out!

Finishing work early today, we have a bbq and drinks this arvo... dont really want to go cuz the food will be awesome haha but ill only stay for half hr or so and then ill head off home!

Hope you all have a great shrinking day!
