The last few weighins have gone something like good loss, gain, same, good loss so I was kind of expecting a gain or a same, but I lost 0.3kg, so I'm really pleased about that! I'm still walking at least 6 days a week. I was wanting to try to do the c25k but my poor "old" knees won't let me, so I will stick to walking.

My Meetings this week
Thursday, 15 November 2007
Do you know what I have found the hardest since starting WW? Learning to take compliments. I've never really had many compliments before and I always used to brush them off. I've since learned that all I have to do is say thank you! :)
I was asked at this weeks meeting how I stay motivated for so long. Tbh I think the first few weeks are the hardest, when you aren't seeing or feeling the results, but once you have lost about 7 or 8 kilos you really do start to motivate yourself. You have lost a dress size, you start looking different and you start to believe that you can do this - AND YOU CAN! I have never missed a meeting - NEVER. Even when I go away (usually to visit mum and dad in NSW) I always make sure I go to the meeting. Keeping a blog helps me stay motivated to, it's different to just keeping a diary as I'm accountable to everyone who reads it not just me. I have never kept my attempt to lose weight a secret. EVERYONE and I mean EVERYONE that I know, knows that I'm doing WW. Even my butcher knows and asks me each week how I've gone. I log in daily to the WW Website to see how everyone is going and to post about my celebrations and breakthoughs, but not only that... Motivating others and patting them on the back gives me a great feeling! All these things help keep me accountable. I can't wait for Christmas when I get to see all my family and friends agian in NSW. I love the shock factor each time they see me, as it's more dramatic because they only see me a couple of times a year.
Some updated pics for you.. you can check out all the pics here. Enjoy!
