♡ Week Eleven ♡

Hello my lovelies…

Sooooo, I am still struggling. Those damn crackers are too damn tasty, I cannot resist. I am doing everything else right- aside from a little extra fruit. So, it’s really disappointing that I can’t control myself when it comes to my crackers. Pretty sure I could be classified as a cracker addict. Ha.

I did weigh myself yesterday (Monday, weigh-in day) but couldn’t really focus on the number through the tears. I kid, I kid… But I saw the number and was all “Bahhh, {insert expletive}”… So I did not record it. I know it wasn’t pretty though. 

I’m thinking it’s time to throw in the towel. The hunger pangs are too much and I am obviously craving more carbs or I wouldn’t be able to devour a whole packet of Kraft Premium Crackers. A. Whole. Packet. I shudder to think how bad that is for me… Although I noticed it said ‘naturally cholesterol free’… but still.

There is a 2nd phase to the diet… Which is re-introducing different foods back into your diet, in a slow and controlled manner- so you don’t get a shock to your system… And it supposedly maintains your weight. Well, not really supposedly… I have done it before and yes my weight stabilised even though I was eating like quadruple the amount. The issue is, you’re “supposed” to do the 2nd phase on a clean slate, as in, having not been being naughty… Like I have been. D’oh! You’re supposed to be ‘clean’ for 2 weeks before the 2nd phase. Can I handle that?? Thus far I haven’t lasted a day without overdoing the crackers. Eeep.

Hmm, I kind of don’t know what to do. I am not at the weight I should be. I am at least 4 kilos away, but I think I need to start eating like a normal human being. Hmm. My mood is being affected. I am a b!tch and a half.

I’m craving everything… And I’m afraid I’m going to binge like a mofo… Surely that would be worse than starting to re-introduce food without being perfect for 2 weeks? Aside from OD’ing on crackers and fruit, I have still been 100%. Hmm, yeh, I think it is time.



  1. In my experience, it's always more effective to allow yourself small portions of naughty something when you feel, rather than trying to restrict yourself and then going NUTSO when you finally do have it! Having said that, I'm just rebellious though, and will rebel even against myself! I tried to do a "soup diet" that my mum did once, and just because I told myself I wasn't allowed to eat anything else I MADLY craved EVERYTHING else! And then proceeded to eat everything in the kitchen. Diet fail! Haha

    1. Yep.. that's me... Madly craving everything. I have even hoarded some treats for post-diet. Like caramel coated popcorn, some cinnamon and sugar flat bread and these yummy little toffee thingies. Yum! I can't believe I haven't eaten them!

  2. GET RID OF THE CRACKERS!!! Eliminate them totally... like so you there is no possible way you can eat them. They have a hold of you! All this post is doing is trying to justify why you should give up... it is your eleventh week DAMN IT... you have lost 10kgs! All of that is amazeballs, don't give up now.. give up when you have reached your goal. This is just your little test to see how bad you want it...

    sorry to get all motivational on your bum LOL :P xx

    1. Damn that spam filter!!! Thanks for going motivational on my bum! hahaha, I need it, really!!!

  3. How much of everything else are you eating? Other then your crackers haha and yes you an addict :P

    You seem to be starving :( Hence, the binging on the crackers..? I'm thinking you should just try the 2nd phase as the first seems to not be doing you any good.

    And I agree, bad foods in small portions can help kick the cravings...

    hope everything works out for you though :)

  4. I see you deleted my comment... sorry if I offended you? I was just trying to say you have achieved so much so far I would hate for you to not reach your goal.

  5. Yeh, my 'diet' is actually one of those Very Low cal ones... It isn't calorie based, and the amounts can change depending on what I eat... I did do a calorie count for one day and it was around 1000 cals. I think that's super low... But, like I said, I supplement when a few extra crackers (eep... sometimes more than a few) and also extra fruit (an apple or some honeydew melon)- those additions would up the calorie count, surely.

  6. I'm not trying to lose weight, but I am always trying to eat healthier. Whenever I get into extreme healthy eating mode, I notice that all I can focus on is food, and it gets really frustrating. Hope your cravings go away soon, they suck so bad!

    Btw, I've nominated you for an award in my latest post over at my blog :) http://sothisisglamour.blogspot.com.au/
