Thanks :)
I haven't actually told anyone except my family and you guys that I'm I this challenge. I want to wait for them to actually comment before I say anything. Might take a few kg yet before they notice :)

I wanted to join this challenge right from the start, but given that I'd just gotten my thermomix I didn't think it was a good idea. And I didn't think I ate that bad, I couldn't understand why I was so overweight. Then I looked at the nutrition label of the juice I have for breakfast most mornings - 2760 kJ. That's my daily intake right there! Then I have a home made muffin for morning tea - 1200kJ. So before lunch I've almost doubled my daily intake of energy. It all makes sense now!

Yeah, its all those hidden calories in products you think are healthy, or won't do any harm! If you still want to do it Amanda, we're all here to support each other :D

Well done Mandi,
I lost 1.1 kgs this week pretty happy with that. Made my first goal of 10 kg took me 5 months, hoping then next 10 come off a bit quicker.
I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

Congratulations to everyone. I didn't weigh myself last Saturday. Probably the first Saturday in 8 years I haven't. I have been out 'doing coffee' with DD over the last 2 weeks so I'm now back on track.

Well done Jeninwa. You have the right idea with a biger longer term goal and smaller shorter term goals.  It helps keep you focused and on track.

Keep up the good work.

Weigh day tomorrow. With a sick child this week and a Victorian winter I am not confident...  :-))
