I've done it!! I've finally done it!!
As you know, I weighed in on Sunday and was still 500 grams from goal. After feeling a bit sad that I still wasn't there, I decided that I would just take the focus off the number and would keep expanding on what I'd already achieved. I kind of forgot about all this for a while, and just muddled along, making healthy choices with my meals, going up the stairs at work rather than taking the lift, but not doing anything extraordinary.
I thought I would weigh in today, seeing it was my 1st "anniversary", a year ago that I decided to start this journey. Just to compare. I was expecting it to say 77, seeing that I'd eaten my Easter bunny and had two serves of spaghetti bolognese on Sunday! But no...... smack bang on 76!!!!!
I AM AT GOAL!!!
It's still sinking in, to be honest!! I cannot get over how much my life has changed in just one year.
A year ago today, I weighed 103.5kg. To get to my healthy weight range, I had to lose 27.5kg. I felt so hopeless and out of control that I didn't know where to start.
But something snapped in me that day. I knew that I'd had enough. I never ever wanted to be in that position again, and that has what has kept me going this entire time. Something about me really changed that day - I started to believe in myself. I knew that if I kept going, no matter how hard it was or how long it took, then I would get there.
It's such a wonderful feeling to set a goal for yourself and achieve it. And what an incredible coincidence that I reached goal exactly a year from when I started?!
I am really happy with where I am right now.
And now begins the lifetime job of maintenance!!! LOL
