Day 42 – Cruise PP

Morning weigh in: 94.9kgs

Daily LOSS: 0.5kgs /1.1lbs
Total loss: 5.0kgs /11.0lbs

Watercheck: 1.9l – tea, coffee water and low-cal cordial


  • 2 mugs of tea
  • flaxseed & oatbran bread with extra light philly and vegemite
  • 2x gluten free sausages


  • 1 breaded chicken breast, with the breast bits scraped off


  • 1.5 hours skating practice
  • 42 squats

I had such a good day today! I had a perfect day, food wise (though the breaded chicken was nearly a disaster) and had an awesome skating practice. I’ve passed all my minimum standards that I need to join the league, so once I go to my first practice in a couple of weeks time, I’ll be a real derby girl. I feel so proud! πŸ™‚

And also- yay! Down into the 94s – here’s hoping I stay there this week, though my weigh-ins are always higher on a Monday. My folks are arriving for a week-long visit, so there’ll be all sorts of temptations – I’ll be getting the bread maker out again for them, but I will have to do my best to resist.

Keep your fingers crossed for me this week too – I have TWO job interviews, both of which have the potential to be pretty exciting.

So. Packing. Parental visit. Job interviews. Job hunting. House move. Plus, on top of all that, work! A big week coming up…

    Hi Charlotte – made the delicious bread today wow it’s amazing! I seem to be eating so much more than you do (how do you go all day on so little?)
    I have enjoyed reading your blog and I have copied & pasted all your recipes.
    Have you tried Goji berry muffins? I make them with orange essence and they are really yummy. I have lost about 15 pounds with 7 to go. I was hoping to reach my target by the end of the month as we are away for the weekend and really want a ‘celebration meal’ but the last bit is slow (probably because I’m eating too much even if it is all allowed!).
    Thanks for sharing your progress and keep up the good work it’s really inspiring.


    • Hi Caroline,

      I know, the bread is pretty awesome, isn’t it? I keep myself to a single slice (or more to the point, 1 portion, sliced in half) at breakfast time. They’re a bit of a faff to make – mostly due to the grinding up of the flax seed – so eating more means having to prepare more flaxseed. That’s enough to keep me to my one slice per day at breakfast.

      I’ve not tried the goji berry muffins – can you share the recipe with me? I’m always up for learning new tricks! And as far as I’m concerned, orange essence is nectar of the gods. I’d use it in everything if my other half didn’t disapprove… πŸ˜‰

      Well done on being almost there – I’m so jealous! I’ve still got such a long way to go, but hearing about people like you who are almost at consolidation help keep me on the straight and narrow. πŸ™‚

      Keep in touch, Caroline!

      Charlotte xx

      I know I’ve said it before on your blog, but I’ll say it again – YOU’RE DOING AMAZING!! You’re maintaining perfectly, and your photos look just incredible. Though I tell you what – Ill be glad to just get down to 40lbs above your starting weight!! πŸ˜‰

      Charlotte xx
