Friday 25th February 2011 Weigh in 69.0, pretty stoked with a 500gm loss :) 

However this all does seem so trivial after the devastation of the Christchurch Earthquake that hit on Tuesday lunchtime, although I'm not directly affected by the quake as we are in New Plymouth which is the North Island of New Zealand and Christchurch is in the South Island I just feel so so sad for all the people affected, I was teary all day on Tuesday in utter disbelief watching the news and just can't believe how bad it is.


  1. Wow what a transformation! You look fantastic!! Your food looks wonderful! I have lost 20 lbs on low fat diet, but plan to lose the last 60 eating Primal. Your before & after photos are very inspiring! Congratulations on your success!

  2. Thanks googleann :)

    Hey Leah, thanks so much! Well done for losing 20lbs, you should find primal much better in terms of energy too, let me know if you have any q's! :)

  3. Quick question if you don't mind? Is the hollandaise sauce you use store bought or home made? If home made do you have a recipe? Thanks!

  4. Hi DollyFinn, the hollandaise I use is home made, it's just 2 egg yolks in a blender with some salt, pepper and 1 Tbsp White wine Vinegar, that needs to blend for a couple of minutes then melt 100gms butter and slowly pour the butter in, then it will start to thicken, it's really easy to screw it up tho :)
