Week 10-So Close

Firstly, allow me to apologise for not posting last week. I had a surprise visitor early on Thursday (my weigh in day) which threw me into action other than weighing in. So I got up Friday to weigh in and after tackling morning commitments, I headed out for a glorious day & posting didn't happen. The results of that week were .2 kg. I was probably hoping for more so I used that as motivation 2 eat healthy & exercise this week. As far as motivation goes, it must have been compelling as this morning when I got on the scales, I had dropped another .9 kg. So I am .4 kg from my goal now. I am excited by that. It means that either next Thursday or the Thursday after I will be at my goal and ready for the rest of my life complete with a new outlook about food! When I set out on this journey, if u had of told me 10 or 12 weeks would go quickly, I would have laughed. But yet it has! It's flown! It seems like only yesterday I was feeling like I looked like a chicken & craving red meat!

Week 8-Awesome Week!

Guess what? I cracked it! Hang on, let me back up 2 the start of the year. Last night I got my journal out & revisited the goals I wrote down at the start of the year. I ticked off a whole list of them that I have achieved (like eliminating refined sugar from my diet & eating 80% of the good stuff & 20% meats & carbs) and there were 5 I hadn't been able to tick off. Some I was on my way but I hadn't completed yet. One of those goals was to get under 60kg. I gotta say I felt very close last night but I knew on the scales I hadn't actually reached it. Low and behold when I got up for weigh in day today, I have cracked the 60kg mark. All up for the 8 weeks I have lost 8.2 kg so I'm staring down the barrel of my last 1.5 kg. I am so excited, I almost can't contain myself. Today, look out world! I am dangerous!

Week 7-Still Chipping Away

Good Morning! It's weigh in day for me today.  It was a little chilly this morning and I was tempted to weigh in with my pj's on.  Instead I braved the cold and got down to my smalls (love that expression!).  More weight loss this week-another .6kg bringing the overall weight loss to 6.5 kg.  I'm pretty happy with that considering I have really struggled to drink water again this week.  I just forget.  And as it's school holidays I've been out most days enjoying the beautiful sunshine-too challenging to always carry water bottles.  I find the thought of sugary desserts now also turns my stomach.  I probably never thought I would believe that food is fuel and that really is my current view of food.  I only eat now when my stomach is telling me it's really hungry, instead of sitting at my desk or wherever I am dreaming of what sugary or fatty treat I am craving.  I am finding I achieve a lot more both physically and mentally and am loving this new healthy life.
