Getting there

Nearly 15kgs (31.9lbs) down. I can’t believe it!

It’s been so long since I wrote a post and I must admit that I am feeling slightly guilty as I love my daily dose of blogs that inspire and keep me going when it get’s tough.  I don’t feel like I’ve been putting in my fair share.

‘Real’ work has been crazy these past weeks – traditionally this is our busiest time with clients wanting stuff done before they go on vacation – how inconsiderate!  I haven’t been able to get in the right headspace to write about all the things I want to say about being on this diet (it’s bloody hard) and slowly starting to see results.  Things like:

  • My rings are almost too loose on my fingers now
  • The compliments I get nearly every day
  • Catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror and being surprised (in a good way)
  • Walking into most shops and knowing that I will be able to find something that looks good and fits me
  • Fitting into some of my shoes (of all things) again
  • Not having sore feet and cracked heels

I’m so happy that I only have another 4 or so days at work before I take off for vacation until the New Year.  This year Mr Man and I have decided to stay home and enjoy the time with family and friends.  I desperately want to go away, but business has been incredibly tough on us this year, so maybe next year.  I will have a ‘proper’ Thanksgiving in 2011.

I am nervous about all the food and drink that goes along with this time of year.  I know that I’ve been the strongest I ever have about being discipline with my food, but you know what it’s like: just one little bit can turn into ‘why not I’ve already had the lions-share with that bite’.

Given how restricted my foods have been, I know that eating something ‘normal’ again will, without doubt, put my tummy into over-drive.  Taking it slowly, and only eating when I am hungry will be my modus operandi.  During the weeks’ break I have also committed to not putting on any weight and staying steady (being kind if I don’t loose any – which is inevitable).  As I’ve mentioned before, I can see that celebratory bottle of Dom waiting for me and I will savour every, single drop without fail.

There is such a beautiful sea breeze blowing through the doors at work at the moment and I am happy that I am on the way to becoming comfortable in my own skin again.
