Photo woes and clothing highs

The last couple of weeks I've hated taking my weekly photo. I can see from the scales that I am still loosing (admittedly it's slowed down but it's still coming off) I'm just not seeing in the photos and it's getting frustrating.

I can see a big difference from week one to now so that is keeping me motivated. I just wish the day I can look at my photo and feel really good about it would hurry up and arrive.

I'm happy to say my size 12 jeans are fitting so much better now. I went out this weekend feeling fantastic in what I was wearing, it made a great change from feeling squished and uncomfortable.

Getting back in the groove

I broke out the crunch time DVDs this week. Feeling pretty happy with myself even though I only did two days of exercise, after all its been 2 weeks since I thought about exercising.

It was the week 4 fitness test that got my butt back into gear. I realized I'd have no change in my scores as I'd pretty much done nothing. So thats not happening for the next test.

I've also started using the iPhone app 'My fitness pal' to help keep me eating the right number of calories. It's so easy to have too many snacks or coffees and over shoot the 1200 mark. With this app I can plan my day better and treat myself without feeling guilty. Hopefully this will pay off at weigh in tomorrow.

The last two weeks have been hard. I've felt like giving up so many times.

The new cafes going ok. The works fine I just don't really like the atmosphere, it's very negative and I miss working by myself.

But I'm also finding it hard to study at the moment, I've lost the 2 hours a day of reading that I was doing at the other cafe and because I've had a couple of assignments and an essay to do I've fallen behind a little bit.

What has this to do with the 12wbt you ask? Well I haven't been on the forums, I haven't listened to the mindset lessons or the weekly video, I haven't even tried to exercise. As a result my weight hasn't changed. I'm hovering between 71.2 and 71.5 and I'm getting so frustrated.

I feel like since I moved to the new cafe everything has turned to crap.

I've made an attempt to get things back on track this week. I'm following the eating plan better this week. I made Thai chicken burgers for dinner last night. Must say I was impressed they were so easy to make and tasted great.

I've got my fingers crossed I'll have just enough of a loss this week to put me into 70.something, that would make me very happy.
