One year ago I decided that I had enough of hiding beneath all the layers of fat.
So I began the journey with WeightWatchers and had my good and bad weeks (mainly good) and kept this up until December when I had lost a total of 11kg. The program worked for me. It taught me a lot and I loved that I never ever felt like I was on a diet. It was little changes that bought results on the scale. I think it was also the first year in ages that I didnt gain weight over Christmas. I kept my eating during the festive season under control. It was after Christmas that I quit WW as i jsut felt liek I was wasting money just to go there and only lose a few hundred grams so I stopped going (when I stopped going to WW that things started to go pear shaped again and I gained some weight).
After a massive momentary lapse of concentration,
Oh F*%K!!!!! Swimmers!!!!The thought of wearing swimmers terrified me!!! Most Summer's I would just hide away inside in the air con but this was not an option on this holiday.
Time to get to it again!
I started to really make use of the treadmill sitting in my lounge room, spend less time on the couch and now have a toddler to chase after. At times it has been hard work...really hard work, but I am making progress.
October 2009 - 97kg
August 2010 - 80kg
I am feeling so much lighter. I have lost almost 24.2kilograms which is 53.2pounds and I can live life.
I hope that in the next year I can reach my goal of 70kg.
Then bypass it by at least 5kg taking me to 65kg and hold that weight for the duration of the year.
