Current Weight: 73.7kg
Gain this Week: 1.5kg
Not bad. December was a bit rocky and that gain reflects the whole of December for me (my last weigh in was November 29). So now I've got to go back to the NO JUNK IN THE HOUSE rule and start drinking more water again.
Here is my focus for 2006:
- continue to stay at goal
- ditched the morning shift so I have more hours for freelancing/study/life!
- enrolled in a Sub Editing for Newspapers, Magazines & TV course
- applied for a role at WW meetings
My 8 Week Weight Loss Challenge is to lose 3.7kg. My goal is 70kg. Why, because I don't fit into size 14 (too big) and I don't fit into size 12 well in most stores (a bit tight around hips). Damn it! Yes, I know...I am making myself a slave to fashion but I just want to fit into a decent pair of pants. I am sick of wearing jeans. I figure, as long as I am within the healthy weight range, I can do this.
BTW notice that I am still a size 12-14 after losing around 20kgs? My biggest was size 16 verging on an 18. My weight was spread evenly across my body so when I was losing it, it was not so much a loss in one particular area to make such a dramatic clothing size difference. Does that make sense? Some people lose a dress size every 5kg, I didn't. Another good reason not to compare yourself to others.
I am really looking forward to this year. I am stronger, smarter and fitter than I've ever been and really looking forward to being able to exercise in the morning again too. The best way for me to start my days.
To finish off this entry, Kathryn has asked in her blog "So what are you going to do that's crazy in 2006?"... mmm, I'm still thinking about it but whatever it is, it'll certainly be out of my comfort zone!
