It is always a shock stepping on those scales for the first time in this weight loss journey.
Before I weighed myself for that first time I had worked out that my healthy goal weight should be around 67kg.
On that first day I stepped on the scales and weighed in at 153.7kg.
I quickly worked out that my goal weight should be 66.7kg so that I had an even number to lose.
Then two things struck me.
First - that the scales were only rated for 150kg...and that I was over that.
Second - that losing 87kg seemed to be a rather largish number to lose!
Both these concerns were quickly dismissed. I wasn't planning on staying over 150kg for too long and reckoned the scales can hold out until then.
And that if 87kg is what I had to lose then it is what it is and that is what I had to lose. I put it on...now I had to take it off.
The road before you may seem daunting but I can tell you from experience that when you look back on it you will be amazed how quickly it all went. Each day you lose a little bit and then a little bit more...and before you know it all those little bits add up to that huge amount that you thought was so impossible to achieve. It took exactly 60 weeks for me to achieve goal weight...that is nothing compared to the three decades that I took to put all that weight on.
It is possible - and very possible for you. Believe in yourself.
