I gained 0.1kg :(

I gained 0.1kg this week. I know not the end of the world but a bit disappointing none the less. I've increased my walks this week. I now go out most mornings by 6 and I'm back by the time Daniel wakes about 7.30. (Don't worry, Brad is here, Daniel just has to wake him if he's up too early and I'm still walking.) I've stuck to core 100% most days only using 10 of my weekly allowance points, I'm still drinking heaps but, I seem to be a bit constipated and I feel really bloated. :( So I'm attributing the gain to that. Needless to say I'll be upping the fibre this week to see if I can get things "moving" lol.

Updated pics

Here are the updated pics as promised. Taken 25/9/07. Just after my 12 month anniversary with WW and 39.5kg lost.

52 weeks ago

I started WW, and wow what a ride!

I was secretly hoping to lose 1.6kgs this week to bring my total for the year to 40kgs, and although I didn't happen I'm more than happy with my results. I did lose 1.1kgs which makes a grand total of 39.5kgs in 1 year :).

I'm more confident. I like the way I look. I'm proud of myself. I know everyone who loses weight says "If I can do it, anyone can do it" but it is so true, there is nothing stopping anyone from losing weight if they want to, except themselves.

I will post some updated pics soon.

I see bones!

I see them in my wrists, I see them in my feet, I feel them everywhere! It's amazing! Sometimes I look at my hands and I don't recognize them as mine, lucky for me they are attached hey? lol! I even mentioned at the meeting this morning that my bed is becoming less comfortable as I feel bones rubbing against each other (ankles and knees) which is a good thing, right?

We were asked this morning to work out how many tubs of margarine we had lost so far... 76! 76 tubs of margarine!!! Unbelievable!

I'm changing and not just physically! My attitude to life has changed. My attitude to food has changed. My attitude to exercise has changed! I stand tall.

I'm not the biggest person anymore. I used to look around at shopping centres and I was the big person, praying that the chair didn't collapse under me each time I sat.

Next week will be my 52nd week at Weight Watchers. A whole year! WOW! I will have to post pics!

A loss of 0.7kgs for me this week. :)

I still lost..

0.6 this week, even with the lead up to Daniel's party, and Father's day I still managed a great loss. I know I didn't get to do as much exercise as I would have liked to either, so I'm very happy! I was actually saying to Jen (hi Jen) at last week's meeting that I'd be happy to stay the same this week, so a loss of 0.6kg is brilliant!

Sometimes we say things to people and we don't really know how it affects them. A few weeks ago I was chatting to an older lady "M" at our meeting (I chat to her quite often) who was feeling a bit bummed about WW and how it was taking so long for her. This week she got to her 10kg loss YAY and when our leader asked what has made the difference in her journey she said "Sharon". I didn't know, but the week that we had chatted she was ready to give up and throw the towel in but I pointed out to her that she had in fact achieved something, that week she had gone into double digits, she was under 100kg and she hadn't been that weight in a long time! It gave her the boost she needed to keep going. It made me feel really good to be acknowledged in that way too. :)

Happy Birthday Daniel!

Here is the cake! It ONLY took me 5 hours to decorate it, but I was happy with how it turned out! Daniel had a great day :) He was very spoilt with lots of fantastic pressies!

Food wise for me was ok, I did have some cake, some (lite) cheese and rice crackers (which weren't core) but it could have been allot worse, so I'm proud of myself.
