From sad and flabby to totally happy!

It would have been seconds after I wrote my last message (reporting that I had nothing to report) that I had something to report...

I once again had a visit from TTOTM... this is 3 months in a row, and trust me to always get it the week of a milestone weigh-in...  But seriously, once is a fluke, twice is a coincidence and three makes it a conspiracy... (or in my case a miracle)  I would hesitantly say that I think I am nearly back to being normal... (well in that department anyway)

I am sure I will get used to TTOTM and the signs that it's coming - I should have realised something was up when the day before I dedicated all of my snacks to chocolate... and I generally don't crave sweets - I love cheese and salami - it's my kryptonite - and yes I just used a Superman reference!! (I am feeling kind of super today!)

I did my measurements and time trial today (I will do the other stuff tomorrow)  I have lost 28cms this round (106cms in total - thats a whole lotta fat!!!) 

I also did my 1km run this morning in 5:15 (that's about 30 seconds better than last time)  although I was completely wrecked at the end of it... bu that's the idea right - give it everything... Geez, do you remember when I started?  I walked 80% of the 1km and it still took me just under 10 mins...  and it really wasn't that long ago, 20 weeks.  

Back then I never thought of all the amazing things I had waiting for me, to be honest I didn't think it was possible. If you guys are just starting out or having a slow start - just keep going - you will be utterly amazed at how much better your life and health will be - it just kind of sneaks up on you - ninja style, then HEE-YA you're fabulous!

To my own disbelief I am now looking at what I need to do to maintain my weight... No I haven't reached goal weight yet, but I'm not far off and I want to be prepared - I can't believe I have nearly lost 31kgs - that will be over 1/3 of my body weight gone... I am so much less, yet so much more than I was than when I was 92kgs...

My friend who is doing this program too (a mum from the school) is doing so well - Even though I have hardly any time to do any socialising at the moment I see her diligently walking the oval and she is doing it quicker than when she started, and she seems to be walking taller too - even though she is already as tall as an Amazon warrior.  She has so much amazingness in store I am nearly jealous. Nearly!

Anyway I must end here - I have 2 assignments due next week and I need to pull out my arsenal of JFDI weapons to get them done...

  1. Hi, just wanted to say thank you for keeping your blog up through your transformation. I'm starting Round 2 in 2013 and I'm excited and nervous and reading your story has helped me see just what is possible, but also identify some of my own self-sabotaging behaviours.

    Thank you!
