Who am i?

My photo
I'm a wife and a mother of 4. I began my 'journey' at 149+ kilos. 8 weeks ago i finally broke the magical barrier of 130 that had confounded me for so long and weighed in at 129.2. Stupid me though, i self sabotaged again and let family issues close me off to the world and i am now 134.6 again and rareing to do anything it takes to get back into new territory.

A positive exercise.

What a fast week. We went for another family BBQ yesterday. It has been quite a cheap holiday period because most of the things we have done are activity orientated instead of the movies etc... They love walking down to the main town and i love the fact that they go to sleep early. Actually i went to bed early as well, and it wasn't long before i fell asleep.
Weigh in day....1.4kg down. I'm 1 kilo off where i will start celebrating again. Although my lowest was in the 133 region that was after taking a fluid tablet, which can dehydrate you a little, and i haven't had one since then so i think this is more of a true reading this time.

it has been a clean up day today. Sorting through bedrooms and stuff. We want a lazy weekend before school starts again. Only a couple of months and i lose 3 out of 4 children for 3 days when they all go on exactly the same camp. Boy wont it be quiet then. And although i don't mind being child free for a few hours, i think losing them for 3 days will be quite tough.

Tip 34 Motivation and mindset.
Know why you want to lose weight

It may seem obvious, but it really helps to have a clear understanding of the reasons why you want to shed body fat. You will have a better chance Of achieving your goals if you are truely convinced of the benefits that your new behaviours will bring. This can help to inspire you and keep you on track during times of doubt. Some of the more common positive reasons that people want to lose weight include improving your health, buy new clothes, or fit back into old clothes, improve your appearance, feel more confident, improve your fitness level or to sleep better.

Now it suggests writing down 2 reasons, which funnily enough is sort of on a theme with what some people have doing in the 50kg+ group.

I am going to put down 2 aesthetic reasons and 2 fundamental reasons.

1> I want to be able to wear a killer pair of midlength boots.
2> I have started to covet some clothes i see out and about and even though i have only lost a small amount of weight i have experimented with layering - which is something i never used to do, and would like to take this further.

1> There are active things i want to participate in....riverrafting, indoor rock climbing etc...
2> i will have to take a plane trip early next year (my first) and i don't want to require a seat belt extender or 'spill over' into someone elses seat.

These reasons are not inclusive of the normal, want to fix my self confidence problems.

Well, i hope everyone has a great, lazy end of school holiday weekend
Edit: I got home from dropping off my son at a friends house to find that, what i was going to cook for dinner has just about been finished off by my daughter. She cooked dinner last night so it was a nice surprise. She is really into cooking at the moment.

And another part on the aesthetic reason for losing weight. I have just been sent an email with sleeping arrangements for my daughters trip next year. I didn't even think about it but i guess i would've assumed i would be lodging with my daughter.....ahhhh no! I have to room with someone elses mum More of a reason huh!
