After 8 months of no blogging I have a lot to catch up on so be warned in the coming weeks my blog will be back tracking a fair bit.
As you would remember we had a serious and traumatic flood event in Roma earlier this year and I helped coordinate the baking and distribution of food - mainly lunch and snack type food - to those affected who were cleaning the mud and filth from their homes. I found this week tiring physically and it only made me realise that my fluctuating weight didn't seam to be changing. I had read Women, Food and God and lost about 7kgs on my own, but I found if I wasn't reading the book every day to remind myself I couldn't sustain the thought patterns. So I rejoined weight watchers in October 2011. By Christmas '11 I'd lost about 12kgs but the going was seriously tough and I was very frustrated. I knew what I needed to do but committing to it was very hard.
The key to my success was that My fitness Pal and 12WBT looks at calories. I knew nothing about calories. I knew points and I was not tracking at all thinking I could just do it in my head. In two weeks of using My Fitness Pal I lost 4kgs. I decided there and then to join in with the girls for the remainder of Round 1 then to sign up to Round 2 of the 12WBT.
And here are the photos to show my progress!!!
When I started this weight loss journey back in 2010 I had hit a whopping 139.9kgs. Horrifying isn't it! I am now 105.9kgs with an impressive loss of 34kgs!!! Most of that I have lost this year on the Michelle Bridges 12WBT. I'm so committed to this program and I'm signing up for round 4!!
