Weigh in...

On Saturday I had my weigh in and am happy to report a loss of 2kgs. I usually have a bigger than normal weight loss post my periods, but I have to say I am still pretty stoked with 2kgs :-)

New Stats:

Sw: 121.3kgs
Cw: 105.2kgs
Ltw: 2kgs
Ltd: 16.1kgs
mini goal: 100kgs
Overall goal: 88kgs

I also lost 3cm taking my total cm loss to 55.5cm. Its hard to believe really, that I am closer to 100kgs than I am to my starting weight. I still feel like I have a long way to go, but 16.1kgs is a great start so I am determined to just keep taking it one day at a time.

I also hit a personal best at the gym. I jogged on the treadmill for 40minutes straight and went 4.5kms. I didnt walk at all, which is insane! I want to compete in a 5km fun run/walk in August and I have to say that its a real possibility now! Some days I just marvel at what my body can do. I did pinch something in my leg however, in my thigh to be exact so I'll have to rest it for a couple of days and try again later in the week :-)

Take Care,

Weigh in and musings..

Well yesterday was weigh in day. I stayed the same. TBH it was a combination of two things, that really overlap. I got my periods and I had been craving carbs and sweet food in the two days prior and I caved. So I stayed the same which is much better than last time I had my periods and I put on 1.3kgs. I did lose another 8cms as well taking my total cm loss to 52cm which is pretty amazing because I have now lost half a metre in 8 weeks : - )

New Stats:

Sw: 121.3
Cw: 107.2
Ltw: 0
Ltd: 14.1
mini goal: 100
Overall goal: 88
Cm lost this week: 8cm
Cm loss to date: 52cm.

I also hit a goal this week. On Friday I went to a Lorna Jane shop. I often go in to browse (and dream). I was looking through the inspirational shirts and could only see size L on the rack, which I know wouldnt fit. So I am wandering along and then I reached the end of the rack and there it was, a size XL. It was the only one left and I grabbed it gingerly, not sure if I should try it on. I looked at S and knew I had to, so I went into the changeroom and slipped it on and you wouldnt bloody believe it but it fit!!! I nearly cried, right there. Its such a small thing but to be able to walk into a store and not just any store but a store developed for atheletic women and be able to put on one of their shirts and have it fit. One thing you may not know about me is that I love pink, so the only shirt I found on the rack of inspiration shirts that would fit me looked and said this:

Classic, Take care,
