♡ Week Seven & Eight Results

Hey Kittens!

I didn’t manage to post last week so this is a double weigh in post!
Last week was my 7th week weigh in and I managed 1.3 kilos.
Today was my 8th week on my plan and I lost a further 2.2 kilos !!! I am really happy with this result! I have now lost 15 kilos exactly! And I am now like 31% of the way there! 

I am definitely noticing a difference… Just in general I feel a lot happier, my skin is clear and glowing, my eyes are bright, I am more alert, my clothes feel looser and I sleep better.

When I think about all the good things happening, I can’t concentrate on any of the bad! The only bad things are that I can’t just go and eat on a whim, and I do cook every meal from scratch and that can be time consuming, but for the results? Pfft, who cares!

I went for dinner the other night with some friends in the city, and as I wanted to stay true to my goal, I didn’t partake in the dumpling-fest… Oh so hard, but when I get greeted with a 2.2 loss on the scales for the week, I am glad I didn’t indulge! In the end it doesn’t matter that I didn’t eat… It doesn’t hamper their experience and I still have fond memories of the night! Plus I didn’t get hit with a big bill! Major Plus!

I wanted to share with you guys my reward plan… These are ‘number on the scale’ dependable and also some rewards when I hot certain milestones (Like BMI status and 20, 30, 40 kilos lost, yes it's a long ass journey!)… I am not including the actual weight figures, as that is tooooooo scary to post!


At x I will get my brows made over at Benefit in the city. Plus a little 10minute makeover + purchase a little make up set. Gel manicure and pedicure at home. þ

At x I am going to treat myself to an at home day spa. This also includes dipping into my USA goodies and use one of my face masks. I will also have a long soak in the tub with some LUSH products. I will also give myself a pedicure and a manicure (gel)! (I will then try to continue this once every 2 weeks!). þ (this is what I am up to right now).

At x I can dip into my USA goodies. (3 products).

At x I will have lost 25 kilos and that’s when I shall have some CANDY. (Prada Candy perfume that is- purchased in USA)

At x I can have another dip into my USA goodies (3 products).

At x ( I will be ‘overweight’ ) I will allow myself to wear my jewellery again. Yes, that’s right, I was being mean and confiscated all my jewellery since gaining weight!

At x I will have lost 30 kilos! I can now have everything I want from my USA stash!

At x I will treat myself to a spa pedicure! I hate spending the $40 when I can do it myself but as a treat it will be lovely!

At x I will give myself the Tiffany & Co bracelet I purchased for myself on 5th Avenue! I haven’t even taken it out of the box!! It’s the delicate silver ball chain with the Tiffany blue heart! (I seriously cannot wait… I have always wanted this since I lost weight the first time but never got around to it! In New York, I couldn't resist buying it, but felt I didn't deserve to wear it!)

At x I would have lost 40 kilos!

x I will be in the normal BMI category! Aka: IDEAL!

At x I will treat myself to a facial at the fancy place near home. Like a microdermabrasion type thing- something fancy!

At goal I will buy myself another Tiffany & Co Bracelet! The same design as the other one but with a dangling bow!

Time on plan rewards

4 weeks on plan: Buy myself that make up bag I wanted. þ (Ted Baker)
8 weeks on plan: I decided not to do anything, as I am feeling fine and happy with the other reward I get anyway.
12 weeks on plan: Massage (already have a voucher- it’s a hot stone massage. Ooh La La!)
16 weeks on plan: A trip to the hairdresser! I dyed my own hair from blonde to brunette, and haven’t had a haircut for like a year! My hair needs help!!!

Thanks for sticking around while I get my weight issues sorted!

I have been reading a book called ‘The Beck Diet Solution’… Have any of you guys read it? It’s about breaking free of the dieting cycle by using CBT (cognitive Behavioural Therapy). I am loving it and finding myself nodding along and I am putting the things I am learning into practice! If anyone else struggles, I urge you to get a copy of the book! I have a hard copy and also one from Amazon on my iPhone and tablet- using the kindle app.

Speak to y’all soon!



  1. Ohh, seriously SUCH a good job! I wish I could lose even close to 15 kg, but I can't barely even budge 1kg. So sad.

    Keep up the amazing work! x

    1. Thanks Cat!
      It's a strict plan with very little carbs and mostly unprocessed stuff. Worth it when I have so much to lose, I reckon :)

  3. Congratz! It's very hard work (I lost 17 kgs last year) and you're doing a great job :-) are you at the "I can't believe I used to pit that crap in my body!" moment?

    1. Oh yeh for sure!

      I think my eating habits would have made anyone blush. So unhealthy... It was like I didn't care at all.
      Anyway, I am on the clean diet now, and loving it!

      Congrats on your 17kilos! No mean feat, that's for sure!!

  4. Yayyy good on you with your progress so far! I'm proud that you didn't partake in the dumpling fest - that's very strong of you and most people fail on their "diets" when it comes to eating out with friends...they'll be like "oh, I kinda cheated"...well you may have cheated but at the end of the day you're only hindering your progress more!
    /end rant lol

    anyway I also like that little reward system that you've devised there! You sound really committed, good work!

    1. Thanks Krissy!!

      I appreciate your support.

      I love giving myself the rewards. I mean losing the weight is seriously reward enough and all I really want, but at the end of the day, it's nice to have something to look forward too. Plus I am spending SO much less on food, I can afford to treat myself a little!! Yay!

  5. Hello, really like your blog, I'm actually just about to start on a fairly large diet, I need to lose 32 kgs... can I ask what a sample day is for you?

    I too am needing to cut out sugar. I am inspired by how great your results are!

    I am scared but I know this has to be done. P.S. I also had a colleague suggest I was diabetic!

  6. Oh My Gosh!! 15K thats crazy good! (I never say crazy good.. do you ever say things to prove a point or in enthhusiasm and its like.. why did I just say that? I never say that) anyWHO. Point. WELL DONE! You must be very proud of yourself and hope you feel the benefits and feeling more positive in general!
