Bloggers Biggest Loser: Week 2

Blogger's Biggest Loser

Ok so week one went well and i lost 4.3lbs wooo! 

then i had some university work to finish and it all went downhill from there :(

so now i am at 191lbs boohooo!! 
I have started work with a personal trainer and so i am feeling a lot more motivated to kick this weight loss in the arse!!!

while i was on my ignoring dieting and my blog hiatus aka last week! I had a revalation while out on date night!
Usually on date night the BF and i go out for a big dinner and ALWAYS include desert because i have a sweet tooth and i am treating myself.
I don't feel bad about this because we all need a little treat sometimes but i do feel bad about ending up buying  a huge expensive desert just for the sake of it after a big meal.

This time around we tried something new
it was the perfect way to not eat a ton but to have a lot of little bites of yummy food.
I had:
baby potatoes (boiled) with garlic and chilli
stuffed mushrooms (little ones)
bread and garlic mayo
and olives

not so bad really and for desert instead of going for a big gluttonus desert i shared this baby with my love
Cucumber and Lime sorbet, dark chocolate cake with port and Creme Caramel

I seriously think this was a brilliant choice because i got to try three different deserts but because we were sharing and the portions were like 2 bitsizes i didn't over indulge.

I remember commenting to my Boyfriend on the way home how nice it was to not feel so full i felt a bit sick but instead i felt satisfied.

I wanted to thank everyone on their lovely comments on the last blog posts i did and let you all know that at some point this week (ahem maybe tomorrow or thursday) i shall be giving away some awesome things including..

WOW - congrats on losing weight and making better food choices! I am trying to do the same, although I haven't weighed myself yet! And that dessert looks delicious!!

A giveaway is always fun - looking forward to it!

I know how you feel. I lost a good amount my first week, then it started going back up. I'm like WTF? but you know... it stinks. Thats good you learned your limits and just didn't eat the whole thing. I started doing that with myself too. Starting to train my body not to eat everything and over eat. I don't know why I did that, but I'm getting full quicker now training my stomach to be full and not over full. Good luck girl! Keep going.

the "easy weight" goes right off then you hit a small wall of what I call "resistance weight" that's where most people quit instead of keep on going. Healthy leaving isn't as easy as the TV wants you to believe.

keep on trucking!

the full but not sick feeling was what made me become a vegetarian and keep being one =)
