[a weight loss story]

*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*



I posted a while back about having a meetup in December after the Christmas Fun Run - the fun run is on Wednesday 14 December at 6.30 pm at Albert Park.

For those who missed the original post, I thought it would be great to meet up afterwards for food and fun. If you want to come along and aren't running then that's cool too.

So spread the word! And come along if you can. Remember those Sydneysiders are having a meetup soon and we can outdo them :D


I didn't get myself a 25 kilos gone reward. I can't really think of anything I want/need so I'm thinking I'll wait until I lose 30 kilos and splurge out on one of those wand blender things (is that what they are called? Like a Magimix thing). I want a good one, cos I know the $20 supermarket ones are dodgy as. Any recommendations?

Hey Kathryn,

"Bamix" is the brand of stab blenders to get.. Mum's had hers for 20 years and it's still going strong!! isn't that a violent name.. stab blender?!

I was going to suggest Bamix too, or a less expensive one but every bit as good is the Braun brand. I got it for Christmas last year and it is excellent. You can take off the blender bit and wash it, rather than worrying about electrocuting yourself by plunging the whole thing into the sink.

The Two Fat Ladies (remember them?) used to call the handheld blender "the kitchen vibrator" which I think is very funny!

It's worth getting one, they're so handy.

Hope you're having a great week :)

I would love to come to the fun-run / meet-up, but its just a bit too far away to justify, even after reading about Chubbymums shopping trips this week!!!!

I also loved your list, you're very interesting :-)

No tips on blenders, sorry!

can't come to the meet sorry as I will be in NZ. Maybe next year.

Hellooo! That is a top idea for a reward. We got this Braun Multiquick one as a wedding gift and it RAWKS! not only does it have the stab blender thingy, it came with a bonus whisk attachment and a small bowl thingy like a mini-food processor, perfect size for making pesto or hummus. It's really easy to clean too!

I have the Braun Multiquick, just the stab blender, though, and I am just soooooo happy with it! I no longer have to take all the veggies or meats out of the soup to process them in the blender, I just use this inside the pot and the soups get oh so velvet!!!!

I have one of the cheapo ones, and yeah... it's not especially great. Still, I don't have any hand mixer besides it, so in some instances it gets the job done!

Love the new look, btw. Very cute.
