Great week

Weigh in this week was fantastic, (-1.2kgs) I am below 90kgs for the first time in about 15 years and I feel fantastic.
At first when I weighed, the weigher said I'd lost 0.2 and I was bummed, I did everything right and tried so hard but then I looked (and confirmed) the weight recorded was 88.8kgs so I actually had a loss of 1.2kgs!
Who would have thought 40 weeks ago that I'd be over 30kgs lighter, certainly not me, after all I was told medically (due to PCOS) I would always find it difficult to lose weight!! I'm so proud of myself!! :)

Back to normal

We arrived home last night and went back to my normal Weight Watchers meeting today. I lost 0.4kgs this week which is great as I didn't have total control of all my meals, and I did very little exercise, although we were non stop for the whole week! I was a touch disappointed though as I was hoping to get under 90kgs, but the scales stopped dead on 90kgs! lol. Oh well, next week!

A really, really busy week!!

Well Daniel and I are home! And we had really busy week.

I had an ok week food-wise mostly core, but sometimes were unavoidable and not core, but I just counted as best as I could out of my weekly allowance. I didn't do much exercise while I was away, so I will be concentrating more on that this week!

30 kgs and over 1/2 way!!

We arrived on the plane the night before and then went to mum's meeting at 9am. I had a great loss 1.1kgs even after feeling a bit fluidy the day before on the plane. So far I have lost a grand total of 30.2kgsand I'm over 1/2 way to goal!!! Can you believe it? I think it is amazing!

Ooops I forgot to update!

Oops! A little loss this week 0.1kg but I am now in the size16 jeans I bought a few weeks ago, with no flabby overhanging bits, so that's a good thing!! I wore them to the restaurant last night and Joy (another customer we have gotten to know cos she's there every week) commented on my weight loss, she said that I have more "shape" now and my legs and bum are looking great! lol!!

I gave blood this week and in the interview the nurse says, "oh you've lost 10kilos since you were here last" And I said "yes I know, I've been doing Weight Watchers and I've actually lost almost 30 kilos" so then she takes my bp and it is "perfect" (her words) 118/73 and then she tested my haemoglobin (iron) and it is "perfect" too at 140. (she said usually when people lose weight their haemoglobin suffers, and was surprised mine has remained so good). She said as far as she could tell, I'm very healthy and to keep doing what I'm doing!

It made me feel so good! I am doing this the right way and I am healthy, my skin is great and I feel fantastic!

Tuesday Daniel and I leave to go to see mum and dad for a week! I can't wait!!! I'll still weigh as usual on Wednesday, but at mum's meeting!
