Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

Tamzins Double Dog Dare You Ticker!

My homage to the 14lbs that I lost on Allan’s DDDY Challenges. A watering can for the vast oceans of water that I have learned to drink and love every day.

Sunday Weekly recap & Allan is watching

Today was a good day. I had a lot to think about in terms of weigh loss and my hand in this and the calorie counting and the water!

I've been productive and here are my weekly totals.

This week I have had 11,921 calories total. This is about 100 calories a day over what I was aiming for (1600 - although Monday this week was still at 1980calories). But in general, I'm pleased with the 1,600. Especially with my weigh in results.

I would like to note to myself that I ate out Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday this week. So, put that in my pipe and smoke it. I thought that it was impossible to lose weight and eat out. But with a modicum of self control and the ability to order well and not eat for eatings sake, I've managed just fine this week. There Tamzin. You can do it!

I'm going to stick with that amount for the whole of next week and really aim for more healthy fiber filled foods, and less eating out - that is better for me and the wallet. I'm excited for next week already.

Also today I had a one year milestone. Today I weigh the least that I have since Dec 2009.


That has really been sinking in today. One year. This graph will explain a significant amount as I have dubbed Allan my "Allan-band". He verbally slapped my fat-self into line (that b*tch is annoying...even to me! ha!!) and got my head thinking more on the lines of what I should be doing. And.. as this graph will show.. it f*cking works.

Sauron ... errr.... Allan... he is watching us!! and I thank him for it!

Love this post, Tamzin and so glad the plan is working for you. Allan is a super guy and is a super motivator for those of us who have weak moments and want to give in to the urge to coddle ourselves. Ass kicking does me much more good than a pat on the head. It is hard to hide from the truth when you hear it, especially Allan's unvarnished version. Love him! Wishing you well on the plan. :)

Oh yeah, that Allan is the evil one I tell ya - wanting people to actually lose weight and shit. Who does he think he is?

And congratudamnlations on your most excellent progress. You are a shining example of how following the rules will get you true results.

Awesome! So much of weighloss is mental/willpower. It's tough and we are all here for each other. Love the Allan Pic

SOOO glad I swallowed my coffee before scrolling down or it would be all over my laptop!! That Allan pic is hysterical- and probably true.. LOL! You've done amazing in the challenge, and you're right- it's possible to eat out when you're committed to making healthier choices!
