10.2 kg less of me :)

Wooo!!! Just got home from my awesome WW meeting and YESSSSSSSSS I have now lost 10.2kg!!! Woop Woop!! Lol just a tad excited at getting past that first 10kg mark!! Such a long way to go but i am most definately heading in the right direction. My leader today asked me what i could do now that i couldnt do 10kg ago and i took no time in answering the fact that i can now walk further. The other day i challenged myself to walk to where i once would stop puffed and calves sore with cramping. I easily made it past that point and beyond! Such a great feeling.
I also make a point of parking the furtherest part of the car park when i do my shopping now days too!! The more walking the better. I am spending less and less time on the computer and am already thinking ahead to what physical activites i will set my sights on when i have i am able. Amongst those include dancing. I may look into having formal lessons or just join a fun group but that is definately on my to do list. Another thing i will most definately do once i am fit enough is get back on a push bike!! I use to LOVE riding my bike!! I was always out riding in my younger days. Never thought of it as excercise it was just my chilling time. It may sound odd but it relaxed me. I would do my best problem solving when riding that bike. Everything always became so much clearer to me. So i am REALLY looking forward to being able to do that again. My gorgeous son, Daniel who is 5 wondered what all the excitement was about so i explained mummy has lost some weight and when she loses more she will be able to ride her bike again and he gave me a huge grin and hug and excitedly said... Then you can ride with me mummy and we can have a picnic :) Its moments like those that make this all the more sweeter. So this week i intend to focus on tracking my points more and walking more! Can't wait!! I am so fired up

Hello, me again.... lol is anyone even reading this? Well even if there isn't i guess its like an online journal for myself to be accountable to. It was a very wet and windy day on thursday but i fronted up to my Weight Watchers meeting as i had decided this time around i was determined to not let silly excuses for not going put me off my long term goal. I lost .8 this week, making my total so far 9.3kg in 10 weeks! Woo!! As you can imagine i am hoping like anything to make at least another .7 loss this week so i can reach that 10kg off milestone!! Its so close i can feel it. Still such a very long way to go for me to get where i need to. But i am remaining focused. I have even begun searching for the kinds of clothing and footwear i intend to buy when i am down to where i need to be. I am so looking forward to doing that. But it is a long way off. Not only do i need to lose alot more weight but at the end of my weight loss i will have to face up to having surgery for a large ventral hernia. :( My hernia is awful!! I truly hate it! And the thought of having an op scares me. But no good losing weight and then not getting rid of this hideous bulge!
I absolutely love my weekly meetings. I find them so inspirational. There is a lovely lady named Kris at my meeting who this week made it to 40.1kg off!!! WOW!!!!! I am so in awe of her. I asked her if she had a before photo i could see and OMG!! I could barely recognize it as being the same person. She looks amazing!! No offence to anyone out there losing a small amount of weight. I realize its all important and we need to feel happy in our own skin. But for me personally i am so sick of picking up a weight loss mag to hear how someone lost 5kg or 7kg. Where as this might be great i want to read stories of people losing 30 or more kg. So to chat to Kris and hear of her journey.... gives me hope.
Well with the TV up loud in the background i am begining to wonder if i am even making sense so i will close here for now. Until next Thursday - adios :)
