Food for Every Occasion

Posted in Diet Blog on October 11, 2010 by Dobsessed

I have a problem with food…thus why I have a diet blog.


My problem is this:

When I’m depressed: I eat to make myself feel better.

When I’m sad: I eat to make myself feel better.

When I’m angry: I eat to make myself feel better.

When I’m bored: I eat to pass the time.

When I’m restless: I eat to settle myself down.

When I’m tired: I eat to give myself more energy.

When I’m excited: I eat to celebrate.

When I’m happy: I eat to celebrate.


In fact, the only time I don’t eat is when I’m sick – I lose my appetite then, and I don’t wanna eat.  If a social event doesn’t involve food, I don’t even want to go.


I don’t even know how to solve this problem!  I’ve been having great success with the Dukan Diet, but I had a few rough patches and I was stressed and I ended up breaking the diet and I basically have not followed it for a month.  I found out I got the job I’ve been after, so I’ve been celebrating and therefore have not been following the diet.  Now…I’m back to firmly being ensconced in being sugar addicted and I’m craving pizza and chocolate and I’m binging and I don’t know how to stop!


I feel like I need to restart the Dukan all over again, and perhaps I need to do the whole, “It’s been 3 days since I’ve had Carbs/Sugar” sorta deal and give myself a tag to wear!


I’m Deeeeesperate!!




8 Week Challenge START!

Posted in Diet & Exercise with tags on October 5, 2010 by Dobsessed

I start the 8 Week challenge at my Pilates studio today, last year, the lady who won, lost 18 kg in 8 weeks!!

I don’t think I personally have 18kg to lose, well…I do…but if I did, I’d be pretty skinny…realistically, I think I could lose 5kg, if I stay on the Dukan Diet, and exercise regularly.  I would ideally love to lose 10 kg in the 8 weeks…do you think I can do it?

In recognition of starting the 8 Week challenge, I didn’t have ANY chocolate (I had lots and lots of Rolos yesterday though) today, no ice-cream, no Skinny Cows, no cheese :).

Here’s my starting stats:

Weight: 71.2kg

Navel: 85.7cm

Hips: 105.5cm

I usually weigh less on my scales, but I usually weigh myself first thing in the morning…so that’s why.  Wish me luck!

Hello Again! Day 70 on the Dukan with Stats and Measurements

Today’s weight: 69.9kg

Total weight loss: 6.6kg


Bust:  Lost 2 inches

Waist: Lost 4.5 inches

HELLO WORLD!! I know I’ve been MIA for the last couple of weeks…I’ve had a few weeks of up and downs and I was just feeling too down to post anything.  Between work stresses – still stressed, I’ll find out after Monday whether things will start looking up for me, it’s been making me pig out.  Last week, I’ve decided to buckled down, I’ve stopped pigging out, I got over my sugar cravings (kidna) and I haven’t had any McDonald’s Oreo McFlurries all week and I feel renewed again!!

Since I’ve gotten my new scales which goes in increments of 100g, I’ve reached my lowest weight to date of 69.9kg! On my old scales, I was 69.5, but I checked my measurements, and I’m also the ‘smallest’ all over since I’ve started the diet…so I’m back to making progress again.  Also, right now, at this very moment, I’m wearing my Fat Jeans no#1!! I know it doens’t sound vry exciting when I put it that way…but I bought this pair of jeans after I put on 8kg and could no longer fit into my 10+ pair of jeans, I was wearing these for a couple of months before I couldn’t fit into these jeans and had to buy Fat Jeans no#2.  Very depressing… When Fat Jeans #2 started getting really tight, I decide to start the Dukan…so I’m happy to be fitting in these jeans again. Just a few more months I think and I can get back to my regular jeans.  Fingers crossed.

My harrowing pig out couple of weeks even saw me go up to 72kg which I haven’t been since Day 35 on the Dukan or something.  After that Hen’s weekend of drinking and eating carbs, I had major carb cravings and it took me a while to get over it…but I’m happy to report that I’m back to feeling a big happier.  Here’s my weight chart to show you how I went:

Pretty bad huh??

But I’m back on track and I’ll start regularly posting again including what I eat. I’m a bit obsessed with Tofu right now…which is good, cos I’m eating protein but I don’t feel like I’m eating too much meat!
