Day 207

To answer a few questions I've gotten: Sayre - I only weigh myself once a month because that's all I can stand. So my 11lbs. loss is over a month period.

Abba - I do find that walking with raw nuts and dried fruit in my bag helps me because when I am running around I'm not always able to get a full meal and I don't want to do what I've done in the past which is grab sugary foods, so a few nuts and apricots work well for me.

Spidey, just for you I will upload a photo as soon as I can grab James to take one. It won't be my front, back, side photo since I thought I'd save those for 10kgs. losses or ... maybe I should take the front. back, side photo now. I'll see.

I kid you not just as I finished responding to Spidey, a giant spider ran across the floor. I love my apartment, but giant spiders are always showing up and trying to crawl on me. I've never encountered so many spiders in one fricking place in my entire life. I HATE all things that crawl, slither, etc. I'm here trying to write my post in peace and a giant spider has just appeared from nowhere to traumatise me. Mind you the little fuckers never show up when James is around. They don't bother him. He never see them. It's always when I am alone that they come out and run straight for me. what is that about? Is it some sort of omen. Jesus man. Now I have to pluck up the courage to kill this woman eating beast. Okay, I dispatched of bugger with one of James's shoes. I'll leave the mess for him to clean up. I can't face that.

Back to business. I've recently changed my food plan, adapting it to one an old nutritionist recommended. She gave me a plan that consists of 5 meals, but it is really hard to follow because I feel like I'm always having to remember to eat and I keep forgetting to, so things are not running smoothly. I think tomorrow I am going to go back to what I was doing in the past but I will keep the slice of wholewheat bread and one tablespoon of peanut butter for variety, because I like that and it's filling.

Anyway, today I had:

B - 233
1 slice of wholewheat bread - 115
1 tbls. peanut butter - 118

S - 303
1 cup of yogurt - 260
1 tbls. agave -43

L - 452
1/2 a mozzarella and sweet pepper sandwich

D - 334
28 grams of cheese - 114
2 cups vegetable soup - 110
30 grams Japanese crackers - 150

Calories - 1322
45 minute walk
6 cups of water


  1. Come live in Florida! You'll see even more spiders, slithery things and lizards. I actually like them all because they eat bugs. Bugs that bite. But it doesn't necessarily mean that I want to spend lots of time with them. Lizards and geckos are my favorites though.

    11lbs a month is a pretty good loss. Not too much, not too little.

    And I know how you feel about the all day eating. I can't really do it either. I have to eat three meals and make the rest snacks - like an apple between lunch and dinner, or a granola bar between breakfast and lunch. Like that. And lots and lots of water.

  2. Well if you hate all things slithery, Australia is not the place to live - we have the world's poisonous snakes and spiders and not to forget the old Blue Ringed Octopus.

    Congrats on losing your 11 lbs, that's a great result. I also loved your photo's especially the food ones - drooooool.

  3. 11 pounds is an amazing number.

  4. Great job on the loss. As for the spiders, I would get a hold of your apartment's maintenance and let them know you need your apartment sprayed. Most of the apartment complexes do this twice a year and will probably do this for you free of charge. They don't want to be known for having pests.

  5. You are doing so well! You would DIE here my girl. More poisonous spiders, snakes, wild pigs, and creepy crawlies than anywhere else in the world I think.. oh, well rather than the amazon jungle! I can't wait to see some pics!

  6. I was quite surprised at the 11 lbs. Usually I lose no more than 5lbs. per month, I hope it keeps moving nice and steadily ... guess some of that depends on me.

    Now I would love to visit Australia, after all such nice people live there, but I don't know about the creatures you share the island with. It's bad enough that they exist, but poisonous too. Oy vey!!!

    Think I'll take your suggestion Abba and call to get some sort of exterminators in here cause these spiders are getting bigger and bigger and I'm really freaked out.

    Sayre, how can you like a gecko? They make my skin walk.


What's it all about Alfie?
