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.

Another low point :D

the lowest i've been in years.

I done 35 sessions at my local contours.....only missing 2 (first sat as i was going to take the weekends off and last sat as i was steam cleaning the carpets).

My fav trainer is giving me a big head. I lost the most cm's last month out of the gym and after a meeting with all the surrounding contours she was gloating as i had lost the most out of the surrounding ones as well.......my success is her success afterall

So i lost 1.4 this week. I'm fine, i'm happy, but i am waiting for the other shoe to drop and the plateau to start....Again. The little yo-yo movement my scales sooooooo love.

The only difference i can see in my shape is that my waist is narrower, but that just makes me feel wider in the hips and butt.
Actually, i do see more bulges, but i attribute that to changing shape. It does throw you for a bit though, it makes me think i have put on weight.

I'm worried i haven't lost any cm's but i have 2 weeks to turn that around. I am trying to prepare myself mentally, like when you first start your 'journey' and you lose the kilos fast!

On other fronts, My house is sparkly. I had a spring clean and cleaned out all the hidey holes (and tupperware cupboard)

I'm tired and aching, yawn my way through gym and fall into bed and pass out. It's just been one of those hectic weeks.

And now for school hols....... Does anyone want to 'borrow' 4 kids????

The weekends thoughts.

Well i did the supersession on Saturday.....guess which part this idiot glossed all over.
If you guessed super, then you can skip 10 of your sit-ups

I was very sore. I did things i hadn't done before. It was also a good thing that i had completed half the C25K program. We had to keep jogging around the room for 10 mins as a phone call needed to be answered.
I came home and felt like i could sleep for a week. The good thing though is that it only lasted for a few hours.....by the next day there was no residual effects. gone are the days when the most pain kicks in 2 days later.

Sunday.....Happy fathers day to my darling hubby. He even went and mowed my fathers lawn for him(dad is a nightworker so really doesn't get a chance)
I cooked a 3 course meal for him.....i really feel loving towards him today. He even made me brekkie which was ready for as soon as i stepped out of the shower. Nothing for himself. He had the normal fathers day brekkie in bed.

My one main feeling for the day. I feel comforatable in my own skin.
Something that hasn't rung true for me ion years now. I don't know what has done it. Maybe feeling in control of myself.....i am not sure. Last year when i first joined i was losing the kilos easily and i don't even remember feeling it then. Whatever the case..........I Like It


EDIT This is after posting to another member. After measuremts on Friday i was nearly in tears..........WHY? I think it was because i was proud of myself. How weird is it that pride in ourselves produces tears.

1st months progress report.

Not on CK, but at contours.

So i am feeling mighty fine today Almost saw my happy dolphins, they just swam by in the distance.
I do feel great though. The trainer was laughing as she was taking my measurements as i had happened to say i don't think i had lost any cms. I couldn't see a difference.
I guess this means that when my undies were falling down during workouts, it wasn't because i was always coming across the same pair that had loosened elastic
Because that was what i kept telling myself.
Soooo, i don't see too much of a difference. Just dents. For a while i have noticed a dent on one side of my stomach and felt a dent on the other sides buttcheek. But the last few days have brought to my attention a dent under my belly button which seems to cause a hump above my belly button. Obviously, now that i have hindsight, it's my stomach shape changing and i'll have to get used to it's new shape - for a while

No TGIF for me....no drinkies. I'm hitting the supersession tomorrow so i wont do that on a hangover - and ever since i have been eating a lot healthier i seem to get hangovers ranging from small to headsplitting on even 2 drinks

I've lost my happy dolphins :(

Well, i'm still doing contours. I've been everyday they are open since i joined, except the first Sat as i A Didin't think i'd want to and B Thought i'd need the rest.
I had happy dolphins for the first full week, which made it a hell of a lot easier to be good. 2 weeks later and i haven't seen them since. Still going but sometimes i feel blah and am counting down the machines until i am finshed or i really work my arse off and feel some major power and determination flowing through me, but still no happy dolphins.

I have even booked into their super session this week, admittedly after asking if i could madify some moves due to my size as i heard women talking about how hard and scary it is. I was told i would be able to handle it easy from what the have seen when watching me - now that made me feel good for a while.

Are happy dolphins realated to other things? Like if maybe you haven't eaten enough that day - so far, no dolphins.
Feeling some ache in my knee, no dolphins.


On another note, i wont be doing the 6 week challenge as they are not running it due to being school hols soon. Sorry if i have mentioned this before. I can't remember if i mentioned it in thread or in blog.
