Well I'd never say the stress was worth it but keeping my head and being accountable during the stress appears to have paid off. The scales show a drop of 2.2kg....!
Of course the scales could be lying, after all they didn't see me eating that cheesecake on the weekend and did nobody tell them how little exercise I took? So I tried them again - leaning forward on the balls of my feet, backwards onto my heels, at the back of the scale and then to the front. No matter how I contorted myself if they're lying they're doing it consistently. So I'm taking it and typing it before anyone can tell me otherwise.
today's weight: 95.1 kg / 14 st 13 lb / 209lbs
loss of: 2.2 kg / 5 lbs
Good luck to all the HYC'ers checking in and a huuuuuge thank you for all the support I've received. It makes a difference. All I've done in this blog is unload a little stress but if that's all it takes to stop me from swallowing it instead I can only thank you for indulging me.
I'm not sure how much I'm going to be around over the next couple of weeks to find out how you're all doing and check in myself. The big move is almost here, I hand my laptop back to work tomorrow and then my trusty home 'puter gets packed and loaded into a container ready to hot foot it 3,400km (2,110 miles) to the other side of the country.
Here's to a whole new life and to meeting new people who will never know me to be heavier than I am today.
