(Relatively) Slow and steady

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.

I have a deathly fear of bees : I have a natural ballet 'turn-out' position : Most people think I walk like a duck : I use to hate my freckles when I was young, but now love them : I hate people calling me 'dude' : I have never been bitten by a spider or a snake or a horse or a dog : I never say 'cheers' at the end of a conversation or email : I always have to put on lip balm and get a glass of water before i go to bed :
