Gain of 0.1 kg

I was in two minds about whether I was going to go to weigh or not tonight and then decided that I should go just so I have a clean slate for a new week. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised at the result as this was the first week that I have not tracked on paper. After the disasterous start to the week when I was too ashamed to write down all that I had eaten in my tracker - I decided to try the mental tracking thing for the rest of the week. Am not too sure that I was totally successful with it and think that I am going to have to really get back to basics for a few days to make sure that it doesn't come back to bite me on the butt (or should that be to land back on my butt ???) plus I think I would be a lot happier if I could leave for Taiwan a few kilos lighter than I am now. The trouble seems to be getting motivated to get back to basics.
I saw a friend the other night after work and she said that my pants were looking a little big for me - the only problem is that they are my new pants !!!! This makes it really difficult as my clothes are all fitting me or falling off me - I bought them when I was about 1-2 kgs away from goal and now that I am nearly 2 kgs under goal they are too loose. I will have to not use that as an excuse to over eat or eat incorrectly and try to stay focussed on what I want to achieve before the first week of December - will see how I go.
Well am off to work - take care everyone and have a great week !

I guess when you are bigger 3-4kgs doesn't make a huge difference in your clothes, but at this end of the scale, it does :)

I also got told by one of the girls at work today that my new-ish size 12 work pants are too baggy (and I have since noticed myself hitching them up a couple of times) - I think Kate is right!!! Another shopping spree is in order methinks!!!

Well done on your steady weight. It is scary at first when you don't write down points but even after weeks of not actually writing them down I think I mentally add them each meal.
Have a great week!

Surely you don't need an excuse for a shopping spree, but now that you have one you can shop to your heart's content and all guilt free! haha
Well done on getting back on track and only gaining 0.1 after a bad start this week, you are a legend!
Have a great week.

I know what you mean about trying to go B2B. We think so differently now don't we :-) But try stay focused on just eating well babe and things will fall into place. I hear you about new clothes being too big now also. We should tell people NOT to buy new clothes until they get to goal LOL!

.1kg is a sml vegemite jar of water (or vodka, gin, beer...), seriously nothing. Are you sure you didn't need to go to the toilet when you weighed? You might have been able to get rid of it!

Whoo hooo for being at a weight were a couple of kilos is noticeable, I envy you!
