Feels like another milestone – 150 days – that must call for a celebration? I knew I’d still be at it though :) from Day 1 I knew I was going all the way, at the moment I feel like halfway there. What’s changed since I started? Apart from being a total of 30lbs down altogether… I think I’ve learned that patience and perserverance leads to progress – that this is a lifestyle change, that it’s hard and constant work – it doesn’t come easy to me, and I’ve not conquered the whole exercise thing yet either – but I intend to! I know it will come eventually – but it’s going to take some more of that patience and perserverance and plenty of determination!
I’ve gained something else too… every bit as precious as the weightloss – I’ve gained some wonderful friends and a great support system! I love the emails and the comments and I feel inpsired and motivated by keeping up with their journeys too - they make my day every day! and they keep me wanting to keep on :)
So all in all – despite the occasional blips (i.e. a pound weight gain this week :( ) this is the best thing I have done in years! That is all the reason I need to keep going and reach my target! In my dreams I would have reached it by now – others have in the same time frame – but I’m me and I can only do it my way!
Now, foooood! I’ve been hungry today, I think it’s because I’m rushing around back and forth to the hospital – my grandson Jai is doing really well today so that’s been a big relief!
I started the day with porridge and then had my DC biscuits mid morning with a cup of tea, lunch was soup and then before dinner this evening I had a packet of DC popcorn and an apple! Then for dinner tonight I had a lasagna with veggies – glad that it’s all easy and ready prepared – it’s been really helpful witht he whole hospital thing!
