Starting Weight: 247
Last Week: 204.6
This Week: 203.9
Loss of .7 of a pound. Once again, although a small number, I am so happy with another loss. I know there is nothing more I could have done and so, I will let my body loose this weight however it wants! Slow and steady wins the race right?!
Anyways, I finalllly got a job! I have been home for 5 months now, so it is about time. This means I can finalllllly get a gym membership! I signed up yesterday and i’m doing my first class today! I got a passport membership so that I can use various gyms, so when i’m working in the city I can go there and when i’m home I can go here.
I’m a tad nervous to how my new working life will affect my weight loss but i’m going to give it everything I have!
Starting weight: 247
Last week: 205.5
This week: 204.6
Lost .9 of a pound! I’ll take that, especially after almost three weeks of plateauing. I worked really hard this week. Ran 5k four of the days and walked 5k the rest. Ate super clean. I’m happy :)
Signed myself up for and payed for a 12k run today… IN A MONTH. Oh god
Just downloaded a 10k runner app… Half excited half terrified haha. Last time I finished the 5k runner I kind of just let that be it and totally lost my endurance. Now I want to keep going! In three months I want to give the city to surf run a go. 14k run. Have some tough work ahead of me!
Dinner tonight. I made chicken breast with some dukkah on top, oven roasted. Salad and sweet potato chips!
Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the beginning of my weight loss journey. I actually can’t believe I can say that. I have tried soooo many times before and failed after days or weeks and not lost anything.
I have lost 40 pounds. Some people on here have lost that a lot quicker… But I am happy with that. Slow and steady wins the race.
The lifestyle I am now living is something I can pursue for the rest of my life. I eat clean and exercise, I don’t deprive myself of treats and meals as long as it’s not too frequent.
When I started this I was so focused on the number on the scale. I have weighed in at the same weight for the last THREE weeks, this would have sent the old me into a downward spiral. Now I just shrug my shoulders and hope for better the next week, it drives me to work harder.
I am running my first colour run this weekend. I remember when i started the couch to 5k program I laughed at the notion of being able to run for 35 minutes straight. But now I can… I can run 5k. My mum is running with me, she has always wanted this for me, a healthy life, a fit life and I am finally getting there. She is really happy for me. Her and my father are the fittest people I know.
One of the most exciting things so far has been being able to buy clothes I like. And clothes online! I never used to buy things online because the chances of them fitting were pretty slim. I used to pick clothes to try on based on whether they looked like they would fit or not, rather than if I thought they were nice or not. I never used to be able to wear separates, like tops and shorts or tops and jeans because I was so self conscious of my stomach. Dresses was all I could wear. Now I can’t remember the last time I bought a dress. My closet is full of shorts and t-shirts and jeans. And I am now addicted to shopping on ASOS (currently waiting for three packages from them haha) and i don’t even need to shop in the ‘curve’ section. I am not even the biggest size in the regular women’s categories anymore :)
I am still only about half way there, but I am so positive and excited for what is to come. ..Here’s to another year… Here’s to the rest of my life
