Well I am pleased to report that I have not put on but lost over the Christmas / New Year period. In fact, with my official weigh-in today, I am now down 19.7khs (38.94lbs). I am proud, but not amazed, and that’s a good thing.
Today at the Doctors they asked me to pick up this huge water bottle and walk around with it. I could barely lift it up – it was so heavy and weighed about 16/19kgs. That, she said, was what I had been walking around with. Holding it for about 3 minutes, I began to feel the pressure all over my body. I know there’s no such as thing as ‘never ever-again’ but seriously NEVER will I go back to that weight again.
What I need to do now is knuckle down and get rid of these next 15kgs (33lbs). The difference from when I first started is knowing that I can do it and how much it will be worth.
