Thanks everyone. Yeah I think I am growing to like the tattoo. But either way, all that matters to me is that no matter what it will always hold the personal meaning that I got it for in the first place
Miss Minx, thanks, I'm great
It's hard to say how long it took me to get from 68 to 62.2 because ever since I reached 70 I have been quite up and down. Losing a few, gaining a few etc etc. To give you some indication though, on 5th January I was 66.2kg. So basically in a month I've managed to lose 4 kilos. Don't ask me how haha, must be a fluke. So I think I can safely say, if I hadn't had any major slips ups before and over christmas, I could have achieved that 6kg loss in 2 months probably. But I treat myself on weekends. I eat what every one else is eating, some times I even go overboard. So I could probably even lose faster if I didn't do that but I don't believe in depriving myself. I should be able to enjoy what every one else enjoys as well as living a healthy lifestyle. I expect the weight loss to go quite slow now that I've reached these lower numbers, but I will try my best to hang in there!
I'm on a bit of a high at the moment. I just finished a gym session. Had a good chat with the trainers there and they asked about my tattoo. I explained its meaning and how I lost 20 kgs and that's why I got it for myself. I also showed them a couple of old photos on my phone, of me before I started losing the weight and they couldn't believe it. They actually seemed proud.. I guess because they have played a huge roll in changing my life. They said I look great. I also enquired about this new L.I.F.E program the gym has going. It is basically a program that goes for 8 weeks where you get coaching sessions, nutrition and meal planning help, counselling etc. I asked how much it is and they said "You don't need it!" So I felt pretty stoked.
I don't think I will get a very big loss this week. I had a bad weekend. Being Australia day and all I probably went a bit too far with my eating and drinking. But fingers crossed I can atleast maintain my weight from last weeks weigh in.
Thanks for all your help guys. I know I havent been on the forunm long, but it really helps having people there!
