Progress report: Week 43

I’m super excited to announce that I’ve finally hit a new milestone in my weight loss journey;

I weigh 99 kg!

I probably could have gotten down to two digits a few months ago, but I plateaued for a while and had to figure out a way to change up my weight loss strategy. I’m glad to say I’m losing weight again now, at a steady pace. Up to 1 kg per week seems to just melt off me, and it feels great to look at the scale from week to week.… Read more

Quick update on quitting soda/candy

Okay, it’s the end of the second day of no Pepsi Max or candy counting yesterday and today. I feel strangely okay, except for the annoying thirst I have in the back of my throat. The kind of thirst only Pepsi Max could quench. I’ve also been thinking about chocolate all day. Just non-stop, every second of the day, chocolate has been lurking around in my mind. It’s fucking annoying as shit. I’ve heard that once you stop drinking soda your tastebuds come alive as well, so food will taste better.… Read more


Three month hiatus over; going to quit soda and candy

Wow, it sure has been a while since my last post. Viktor has grown three months, and I haven’t really lost as much weight as I should have. I have my reasons for this, though.

I’ve been losing hair like crazy since Christmas, and it’s been making me feel horrible. As if I didn’t have a shit self-image already, now I’m fat, ugly, AND I’m going bald? Jesus. (Yeah yeah, I know I’m not actually going bald, and that hair loss is a very common side-effect from breastfeeding.… Read more

Progress report: Week 15

I decided to give myself a birthday present this year, and that present was two weeks of not having to report any progress, so I skipped week 13 and 14. To be honest I’ve just been swamped with stuff to do for Christmas, mostly because I’m crocheting gifts for a bunch of people this year.

Lemon and a bunch of my family members got together and bought me a gift as well: A SEWING MACHINE! The last time I used a sewing machine I think I was 10 or 11 years old, when they made us use them for school.… Read more

Progress report: Week 12

I’m tired. We’re trying to teach Viktor a better nighttime routine, but whenever we put him to bed he just cries and screams forever. Ironically, he’s probably just crying because he’s tired. In the end I have to rock him to sleep almost every night. We purchased a baby monitor today, so we’re gonna try to have him sleep in his own bed from now on. He’s been sleeping in a baby nest in our bed these first few months.

It’s probably going to be difficult for him to get used to sleeping in his own bed, since we already made the terrible mistake of rocking him to sleep every night the past few weeks.… Read more

Progress report: Week 11

This week I freshened up the baby carriage mobile I made. There were a couple of design flaws, and I wasn’t happy with the colors I had initially used for the spheres. There was no clear theme going on, just a random splash of colors that didn’t go well together.

This time I made a plan for it. I shortened the thread that the figures were hanging from, because they were hanging much too low. I also replaced the thread the mobile itself was hung from.… Read more

Progress report: Week 10

The last few months have been good to me. Viktor was born, I won a Playstation 4 in a contest, and we managed to score tickets to a Radiohead concert in Oslo next June even though they were sold out within 2 hours. My birthday is coming up soon, too. I’ll be 24 years old on November 25th, and Viktor will be 3 months old the day after that. I’m still waiting to hear that sweet baby laughter for the first time.… Read more

Progress report: Week 9

As of today, I’m down 20kg since Viktor was born. I’m really surprised I’ve lost as much weight as I have, considering the fact that I have been eating an extraordinary amount of crap lately. I also “forgot” to exercise ever since that one time I did some half-assed yoga. Man, yoga is work. My ass is lazy.

I’m glad I have Lemon to pick up some of the slack so I can allow myself to be lazy some days.… Read more
