Goal #4 = 20kg

Well I did it. 

20kg have gone never to return 

The thought that 20kg will never be seen again is the most amazing thought in the world. 

I couldn't be prouder. And my husband couldn't be prouder. He is just so cute. He gives me such motivation. 

I never thought I would ever get here in my life. Food doesn't rule me any more. I still love food. In fact I ate 1/2 a lobster last night and it was great. But I don't feel bad about eating any more. I don't consume huge amounts of food so if I do have a bit of ice cream or a bite of chocolate I have no guilt with it. 

The food choices I am making are so sensible and delicious. Soups, salads, fish etc. I feel like a skinny person eating. And I love it. My life has completely changed and I love it. 

I never will go there again. 

Life doesn't get any better than this.

Shopping is a dream

Yesterday I went on my first major shopping trip. It was amazing being able to walk into any store and find something that fits. 

I always loved clothes shopping but this weight loss has taken it to a whole new level. 

I bought a magnificent dress from Max Azaria. Top from Burberry and tops from Kennith Cole. 

I've never been so excited. I made sure some things were a little smaller and something that will look great at any size.

Happiness was yesterday. Pleasure and joy and a reward at the end with a chocolate covered pretzel (slider food 100%) but I only ate half.

First dinner out!

Tonight we are in Sydney before we fly out to the USA for our 3 week holiday. 

The plane ride, even though comfortable in business class, was uncomfortable. The 1.5 prawns that I did eat didn't stay down. And then I suffered with terrible nausea the rest of the flight. 
When we get on the plane tomorrow, ill not only have my vitamins but I'm going to include another somac, de-gas and a travel calm. That will pretty much be my breakfast. 

Also I had another first tonight. It was my first restaurant meal out since surgery. 
We went to a very fancy restaurant in Sydney's Paddington area. 

My family ordered entrees and mains. I took one  bite of my husbands entree and I really enjoyed my fish main. It was delicious. 

I ate a few bites, but I'm getting really good at listening to my body and stomach. I haven't had problems with fish do I'm going to stick with that for dinners out  

I had two bites of the crust of very crusty bread and that was delicious too. 

But I was so happy to have a good dinner out with my family. 

I also got to see my darling cousin who lives in Sydney. I love her to bits. 

Life is great!!!

Goal #3 done and achieved. Yay for ME & double digits

I have never been so excited!

I have finally reached my third and most exciting goal which was
to get bellow 100kg.

Well today was that magnificent day.

I can't remember the last time I was this weight but I do know it was more than 10 years ago, even close to 12.

Nothing is as good as the feeling of thin!

I love my Wiithings scale.  It tracks everything.
And watching that little graph go down, is the best thing ever.

As a reward my friend got me a skinny macchiato mmmmmmm

Although it has taken me about 2 hours to drink and is now probably considered an iced coffee.

Loving life so much!

Strengthen. Tone & sweat!

Working out is not a pretty event. 
I wear my old baggy track pants. Bright orange sneakers and my wild curly hair is all over my face. 

I put in my headphone and sing out loud and probably put of key and I make as many grunting noises as a professional tennis match. 

But after all of that I am working out!

I saw this online today saying if we do these exercises for 7 minutes a day we will be terrifically toned. 

I'm kind of guessing that 7 minutes ain't going to cut it to tone this body. But I do like the routines. I think in going to include some of these in my tabata work out every second day. 

I want to tone these arms, Legs and stomach. I'm trying to avoid as much loose skin as possible.
