all the better for it

|

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

Yay!

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.

Congratulations! I bet you were eating great the rest of the week. A little cheesecake didn't put a dent in it. Welcome to the Healthy You Challenge. It's a great ride.

Wow great job this week! One piece of cheesecake can't mess up a whole week's of good choices and hard work. You are doing awesome! Have a great week.

thank you cindy and sunny - feels great :-)

for the sake of full disclosure I should add there's been cheesecake and muffins and garlic bread and mini pies....and...and a whole plethora of meals out and catered functions but I'm proud of myself that despite all these situations where I wasn't controlling what I was being fed I counted everything and countered everything with healthy choices on the occassions I did get to make them myself.

Great job on the loss! I loved this line: "Here's to a whole new life and to meeting new people who will never know me to be heavier than I am today."
What a wonderful thing to know and to celebrate! I'm hoping to move within the next 9 months, so I that line really hit me. :)
