Day 2 - Tomorrow I weigh in.

I would do it today, but I like to weigh myself in the morning when I get up. 

I don't have traditional scales, just my Wii Fit board, I hope that is ok, I'll have to check with the forum ladies. 

They all seem lovely so far, except they all seem to know so much, and have all been here before. I know I am a noob on this forum, but I am hoping to meet some new people and make some new friends.

I don't currently have many friends here, as I moved from a tiny town in country Victoria about 5 years ago. You would think I would have been able to by now, but really where does one go to make friends? I have quite a few male friends, I personally think men are much easier to get along with, but they aren't the same as 'girlfriends'. 

I need a support network in order for me to be able to lose and maintain my weightloss. Hubby isn't much help, no offence to the poor darling, but he has the metabolism of a race horse, he can eat what he pleases and forgets that it's definately NOT the same for me!! I am hoping the ladies on the12wbt forum as well as another forum I am on will be able to offer me support throughout all of this. 

Yes, I admit it, I am a forum/facebook/internet addict! I have no idea what I would do without it. I have made so many online friends who seem so much nicer and more genuine than the people in my 'real' world. 


Anyway to get off of my rabling, I am SO excited that I signed up, I am getting impatient for it to start already so I can kick it into gear, though I am def starting to work out harder now and eat healthier. It may sound silly but I was even more stoked when Michelle Bridges started following me on Twitter O_o, nerdy of me I know....

This afternoon my mission is to clean out my pantry and fridge of all junk food. 

This may seem a little extreme, but my body is terrible, if there is yummy food in the house my body WANTS it. It doesn't matter that I ate an icecream at work and sneakily snacked on some junk food on the way home, if it is there I have a compulsion to eat it. So the best thing for me is for it not to be there.

  1. Hi Jodie
    I am a newbie too to 12WBT. It is overwhelming all the repeaters isn't it! Will be good to hunt out some of the new people and follow their journeys through this together, so we can struggle and be proud of all the achievements we have made without them looking insignificant next to someone elses 18km run!

    Hope the pantry clean out went well!
