As you can see from my journey below, it’s a challenge all the time. I didn’t want to keep rewriting history, but I have crossed out the bits that I didn’t succeed in. I have changed my mind a little about success as well and I will document this as I head into the New Year of 2016.
44.5 years 48.5 49.5 years of age and trying to lose 30kgs (66lbs) 20kgs (44lbs) or there abouts.
I have always been a little above average weight all my life, but my BMI remained in check and I didn’t sweat about it too much. Over the past
5 years 8 years 10 years (since moving back home to Australia after being away for nearly 20 years), I managed to put on nearly 30kgs. I have been struggling to lose this weight , but in October 2010 enough was enough. I started my new eating plan with Dr. Rensburg on 21st October, 2010. I don’t know how much I weight (I now know I was 98.3kgs – 215lbs), but I am the heaviest I have ever been. I attempted the plan again in 2013 and lost about 15kgs. I can make all kinds of excuses about my health, the menopause hitting me like a brick – the whole gamut. But No More. On Monday 6th October I am returning to Dr. Rensburg to, once again, try and get my weight (and head) in the right way. It’s the third time.
I am now keeping this daily journal to remind myself that I am OK as I am, and if you are happy with the inside, the rest will fall into place (not by magic but just about respecting yourself and what you put in your body).
