Had my weight in at WW today and manage to lose some weight even though I'm having that dreaded week of the month...
But I'm very happy with the result; 1,1 kg (2.4lbs).
That means that in 5 weeks I have lost exactly 7 kilos (15.4 lbs). I'm very happy. And I also earned my second gold star, we get them every tree kilos we lose. They don't have any value except to represent our blood, sweat and tears an our journey to a healthier us.

As a little gift for my accomplishment I treated myself to the cinema.
Went to see 2012. Good movie although very "Hollywood" if you know what I mean, everything turns OK in the last second, and there are many of those moments in this movie (at least for the main protagonist). But the graphics are good and I enjoyed the movie overall. I don't regret paying to watch in in the cinema.going to the cinema
Saw a trailer of another one I want to see which is Avatar so I'll put in on the list with New Moon and Sherlock Holmes.

Edit: I had forgotten the last good news I recived today. As of January next year they are lowering my rent with 10% !!! That is very very nice...

the opposite of anorexic

To put it lightly an anorexic person doesn't eat and when they look in the mirror, it doesn't matter how thin they are, thinks they are fat.

I was the opposite.
Loved to eat (still do) and no matter how big I got when I looked in the mirror I didn't see myself as fat. Overweight sure, but obese? Never!
The only times I thought I looked obese was when I looked at myself in photos. But have on gotten to be this big it is not without lying to oneself. I was fat in thos pictures because of the clothes I wore, because of the pose I stuck, the lightning wasn't good, "that friend" is just too skinny, and so on and so fort...

How sad is it that the thinnest I remember to be was at 73 kg (160 lbs) and that was when I was 13!!!!
And that was still overweight.

I'm finally starting to loose weight but in a bit more than a month it's Christmas and I must admit I'm scared out of my mind.
This year I'm flying to Argentina to visit my father, who, as I have mention in some other post is obese.
I will be there from 21/12 to 11/1. I know there will be much eating and really, REALLY good food. At best I will maintain my weight (I really want this!!) but I'm scared to gain the weight lost and gain some more.
I know that if I watch what I eat I shouldn't have to much trouble but the problem is that there will be food out 24/7. Breakfast, lunch a dinner will all be big things with many courses and deserts, not to mention the snacks between the meals.

I'm thinking of finding a gym there to workout. But how big of chance is there that one exist that is open most of the time even with all the holiday that exist in this part of the year...

I better stop or I will depress myself more than I already am. It's "that" time of the month for me at zits have appeared all over me as if I'm just entering me teens! YUK!
I've been to the weight watchers # more times since last time I wrote. The results are:

2nd week: lost 1,9kg = 4,1lbs
3rd week: lost 0,2kg = 0,2lb
4th week (yesterday): 2,0kg = 4,4lbs

In total for four weeks I have lost 5,9kg (13lbs)

Which means my current weight is 88,8kg (195,7lbs) - finally under the 90/200 line!!

I'm most pleased with myself.

The only setback is my training schedule... at most I do 2, 30 minutes workout per week

PS: when I count how much weight I loose I love doing it in lbs, the number is always higher than with kg =)

The prank callers biggest dream!

Ha! Just heard in the new about a town here in Sweden that has some..problemes with their phones..

The thing is no matter which phone number you call in the city all of the in habitans phones rings....!

Talk about non-stop ringing! And this has been going on since May!

Finally willing to lose weight!

So I haven't written in this journal in a very long time.. more than a year! And I still pay yearly for the account.. so I better start writing or I will kick myself in the but...

This summer I got the biggest chock of my life. I stepped on the scale in the bathroom and it said 97kg!! (thats 214 lbs for those of you who used that). I have never in my life been as fat as I am now. Which scared me since I saw my self slowly becoming my father. I don't know how much he weights but I know he is obese.
Some of you might thing it isn't that much but I'm short 158cm or 5'2" which means I'm at least 40 kilos (88lbs) over weight.

I've been big-boned going on fat all my life but never had the motivation to do something about it. I mentioned my father earlier and I've had big issues with him because every time I would try to lose some weight he would unconsciously drag me back. He would think it was great and then in the next sentence stuck me with him as the fat ones in the family. I know he didn't mean anything bad but to me it was like he was say look at me this is how you will be in the future and nothing you do will ever change. It always broke my heart and my mother had to pick up the pieces and I found the strength some years back and sat him down and talked with him about it. Every now and then it still slips past his lips but I have learned to simply "not hear them".

My mother was the exact opposite of my father. She was never as fat as me but she was overweight and she lost it and she was always pushing me to do the same. During many years I thought she was a pain. Always looking over my shoulder, "should you eat that?","are you sure about that?", "why don't you take a walk?" "when are you going to get serious?" She has always been my best friend, but how I disliked her at those times. I've always know that she did it because she loved me and saw how unhappy I always was with my looks. But it came a time I also had to sit down and talk to her as I did with my father. She could still cook all the healthy food she wanted but to lay off the pressure. When I was ready and had the strength and the conviction to lose weight I would do it on my own.

And at last we have gotten to last week. I found my strength, I found my motivation.
After watching the biggest loser I said to myself; Britt-Marie it is time. It is time for you to change yourself.

So I started The next day I joined the Weight Watchers with a weight of 94,7kg (209lbs).
I bought myself a an Orbitrek Elite cross trainer (I've tried gyms before but always felt really uncomfortable in them) and try to do 30 minutes on it every day.

Yesterday I was at the Weight Watchers again and the scale showed 92,9 I lost 1,8 kilos! Almost 4 lbs.

I'm very, very happy!
Snagged this one from tamakin, whose I responded to. It's a lot of fun!

Ok so some time ago I wrote a small ficlet/drabble for the prompt "Champion" at nekid_spike. It's a small background story for my story  Wasteland, that only has the prologue and first part written... (you can find it here) hopefully there will be more of these ficlets which will lead me to finally being able to write the whole story...

This haven't been beta'ed but I have reread it a couple of times and run it through a grammar check.
If you find errors please let me know! I would greatly appreciate it, grammar really kicks my butt most of the time...

Title: They used to call us champions
