    Aches and Pains

    My back pain use to be so bad preband but now ive lost 25kg and lots off my boobs a notice the diffrence my boobs were just to large before. I also notice when i fall off the wagon and start to gain even if its just a kilo i notice the diffrence as my back aches again like my body warning me not to destroy my hard work. Cause day one after a off the wagon week i feel lighter and thinner and thats just not possible so must be my body thanking me

      Perhaps the same ones that offer you a big slice of rich chocolate pudding for dessert even though you'd said no thank you??

    teenage girls making fun of me while running

    wow not much has changed from high school days still the same except i remeber having more respect and fear of adults. whilst kids may have bullied other kids never went as far as bullyinh a adult. kids of today dont seem to have that fear or respect of their elders and its getting worse!!!!!! One day their eating will catch up to them and they will be the one running and being picked on and perharps they will think back to this moment and realise how stupid and inmature they were.... your doing a great job keep up the work dont let a few bad eggs beat you down

    Superanuation and tax

    You sure can minus the 1500(I think that's 2010) threshold from the amount and claim the rest under medical expenses.

      It really is such a mental battle isn't it, I struggle as well. Why can't we let ourselves be successful ?!!! We do deserve it.

    November Bandits 2011

    I was doing so well lost 24kg I was 17kg from goal and then it stopped my motivation died and I made all the wrong choices I began to savant age my success and set myself up for failure. I have not gains but have not lost for two months I was ment to loose my 17kg by August for wedding now I'm fearful this won't happen as I can't seem to motivate myself. I gave myself 5months now I only have 3 left and I find I feel like I'm gaining rather than loosing. How can I kill off those inner demons and solder on towards my goals again before it's too late and I end up back where I began. I keep telling myself tomorrow and it never comes.
  16. I have found for the last three weeks my motivation disappeared and I'm struggling each morning feeling tired and exhausted even whilst lying in bed once I have woken. I drag through my day at work trying not to tell my staff to go away as I feel mentally drained. I don't weather this is because I am lacking nutrients or cause I'm still getting over a cold or if it's band related but before this I was on the road to success...gym and exercise daily full of energy not wanting bad food wanting to live life and happy and excited that I was beating my demons... Now I don't know how to get back there!
  17. Why can't mums get respite for their normal kids if they have no family network? Out of normal hr daycare would be awesome!

      It's called bedtime, sorry, it sucks when you don't have family around. When I was in the UK with 3 under 3 and really getting ready to want to harm someone ...... I got school age girls in after school everyday . Cheap and I would get them to do various things, sometimes I would just leave the house for half an hour and would always reassure them that I would not be upset if the kids were screaming the place down when I got back, I just needed a break!! Also she would take o...

    Sunrise today.

    I believe that fat discrimination lies in the way the person views the,self. When I was at my biggest I hated the world I had a bad depressing attitude and people in my family have said I seemed unapproachable. Every time I was ignored or looked at I assumed it was weight related when the case could of been someone was busy or they were admiring my clothes. Now that I have lost weight I feel awesome I love the world I love life and if people ignore me or look at me I don't assume it's weight related. I think the point is if your having a bad day and the littlest things go wrong on top of your bad day it seems like the world is out to get you. But if you were not having that bad day and little things went wrong here and there you would brush it off pick up and keep going. I know this sounds stupid but I read a book also avaliable in movie version called the SECRET, and it says if you think it it will manifest into action. I strongly believe the concept of this book.... If you think people are staring at you cause your fat then when someone looks at you that's why there looking as you have predetermined that as the reason. If you wake up and think the day is going to be great well little things going wrong will have no impact on ruining your day. However if you wake up and think today's the worst day ever all th things you wouldn't notice such as dropping your keys, getting red lights, spilling your drink ect prove to you that your day is the worst day ever! Although I'm sure there is fat discrimination out there for sure... I just believe people minds also have a lot to do with over analysing innocent situations or blowing other situations out of portion...
