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.

Day 9 of 6WC

Day 9 of 6WC

So it was weigh and measure day.
I'm down 1.5kg and 9cms.

And the best thing is that i am still feeling motivated. I've gone back to the eating 5-6 times a day rule - 3 meals, 2-3 snacks. I don't really feel hungry, but my problem has always been snacking because i am bored so i still have to watch out for that.
I had a good session at the gym.....i'm halfway through my daily water intake, so all in all life is feeling good for me.
Oh, i did have a pessamistic moment when i overheard someone had lost 1.9kg. But i told that inner demon to shut the hell up as i had just had a week to be proud of and got a good result as a reward.

I know it can't be the same everyweek.....i'm hoping for 4cms next week. I don't think that is too much to hope for.

Day 2 of a 6 week challenge

I should have blogged this yesterday but i was quite busy.

I joined my local contours 6 week challenge which started yesterday. And boy did i get off to a good start. I'm in the evening of my second day and i am bang on the right cals...now just to keep focused until i go to bed.

My main goal for this challenge is to see it through. I've been too wishy washy for the last year. I haven't stuck with any good eating habits. Now it's only day 2 but i am trying to stay positive. I'm not usually one for the warm fuzzy motivational thoughts. It has always seemed to hokey for me but i am willing to try anything....whatever it takes to get me moving in a downwards motion again.

I've upped my weights again, and boy - o - boy do my thighs hurt.

Till next time

The end of the week

Well i've done OK this week. Nothing special but i'm not 'in the zone' so i cant complain. A Small loss, which is better than the gains of norm.

I've signed up for my local contours 6 week challenge again.
The last one was a bit of a failure as i gave up halfway through. I'm hoping this will give me a kick in the pants.
It's a little different this time.......we'll be having 3 bootcamp style sessions in the 6 weeks and we'll be assigned a 'mentor' from one of the trainers which is a good idea.

I just tried on a shirt/blouse. Now to say i fit into a size 26 shirt is not a big deal, size 26 being my original size and i am now 22-ish, but if you knew that i have not been able to fit into anything that comes together with buttons in the front for about 12 years now should help you to see that this is a big deal for me. Plus there is no gape. Unfortunately i am not a fan of clothes with buttons up the front any longer....probably because they have been out for me for so long, i only put it on like a jacket as i am slighlty chilled but not cold.
Note to self: hold onto the happy feelings for as long as possible.

Hmmmmm, gotta end up here. At least for now. Kids are calling.

i CAN change my world.
