Outcome of 5x7

Way back when at the beginning of July I posted I am the Walrus. It set me and TwoFlower on a mission...to lose a set amount of kilos in a set amount of time.

We termed it 5x7...I think I originally meant 5x9 (5 kilos by the 9th month of 2006), but hunger pangs have been known to cloud one's memory and intelligence.

So let us finally compare...

Before:



After:

Aaaah, look how streamlined. How toned. How just incredibly adorable I have become. All naked lolling about there in the water (Read the linked post if you want to know why Sea Mammels).

Ja right, 2 whole bluddy kilos. That's it. What silliness is that?

But I will keep aiming for the sleek elegant dolphin. Continuing with my nose-to-knee-while-neck-is-wrapped-around-and-under-left-shoulder yoga classes and walking-to-heaven treadmilling while catching up on my Isidingo.

And like any good Humanitarian worker, rather than admit that I failed, I will just rename the project & file the old one away to gather dust and be forgotten about. While generating a whole new 1000 page explanation of a replacement project that everyone will be too scared to read & so will just accept.

Welcome to "2 kilos: 2 months"!!

2 months till December holidays. 2 kilos still wanting to be lost. Coincidence, I think not.

TwoFlower - you keen??

I am the manatee!

Ooo dangerous. That is my fear.

And THAT'S what that damn animal is called!! I have been trying to remember for ages now. I just call it the sea elephant. Aah, sea mammals, gotta love them.

fly said...

hehehe....

It just may be that drinking so much may contribute to the problem ???

hush, what am I saying... :-O

Im yoyo right now...89kgs 2 weeks ago, now 85 ??? and I want to be 80...dunno if i'll achieve that but I am kinda sorta sticking to my diet...kinda....

Champagne Heathen said...

But fly, I drink such little drinks. Surely not them!! The smallest tiniest little shots of tequila.

And whatever else I drink is pure fruit juice...wine & champs and cider!

That's quite a lot to lose so fast. I reckon you stop the Ethiopian famine diet for awhile & eat a bit!! How on earth! Unless you are a stress=weigh loss people.

...but can you balance the beach ball on you nose?

fly said...

lol@rev

Actually sweet drinks, cider, white wine and champs are definately not the best for the figure, too much sugar...spirits are way better :o)

The partial loss can be contributed to changing from beer to vodka...and with the soda in it you are getting alot of water...its just the lime that throws it a bit....

Nope its still 80 for me....85 is roundish....I want to be slimish :o) time to hit the gym again....

Also known as the sea-cow! We lead very relaxed lifestyles, foraging in shallow warm waters for seaweeds to munch upon. Sea-cows take it slow and appreciate things, no matter how large they are.

TwoFlower said...

champs - well done on losing 2kgs! i don't think i even did that, think i maintained! oh well...will try for december!

Champagne Heathen said...

Rev - No. But after another year of yoga I am hoping to be able to balance on a beachball by my nose!

Fly - we all have our own forms of denial. Alcohol-sugar-my thighs is mine!! Good luck to you. So you are 5:2 then. We'll review in Dec!

CTC - Aaah, and you guys have those cute muzzles that sniff up the sea floor. Like a vacumn cleaner really, the industrial kind. ;)

Champagne Heathen said...

Thanks 2F. It was a concerted irritating effort (she said while finishing off a piece of choc cake). Onwards to December we go then...

spoon said...

Dont' stress - you're probably just retaining champagne!

ChewTheCud said...

Fat but cute! Thats our niche! who needs dieting anyway?

Champagne Heathen said...

Spoon - you might be right, but then I am staying right where I am. Fat unhappy chance I am forsaking a life necessity for something as vain as my waist!

CTC - Wooo, hold on, just becareful where you bandy such words about (diet). There was never any mention of such things. Sure I live solely on carrots and apples and a constant hunger headache these days, but I prefer to call that healthy detox eating. (Just typing that has made me decide I am ordering the ribs tonight!). Less diet, more healthy conscious eating with some kickass exercise inbetween. Healthy, happy AND uber-hot!

And I am sure your "little" muzzle-nosing shallow-water-paddling cow-bulging-large self is just incredibly cute!

ChewtheCud said...

Carrots and Apples? you're not a walrus - you're a rabbit...

Champagne Heathen said...

HEY! I am no longer the walrus! I have downsized. What do seals eat anyway? Penguins? Gotta find me a penguin then.

kyknoord said...

The big (no pun intended) question is how slim do you feel? Weight is such an arbitrary measurement and tends to fluctuate according to arcane rules poorly understood my nutritional science.

Champagne Heathen said...

Today I feel gorgeously thin!! I think it's cause I am wearing my red takkis that make me want to bounce about. Don't ask. I have weird perspectives on things. I equate my body to sea mammals after all!!
