hey all, thought I would start plotting my progress too.
I started my journey about 4 months ago after a bout of gastro, I lost 5 kilos in 2 days and was really off my food for another 3 weeks.
Something clicked and I thought this is it, im going to keep going and change my lifestyle.
then 2 months in, I injured my back, a disc bulge onto my nerve root, and have been slowly getting better, I am now back to walking slowly and I got my back brace yesterday.
I am determined to get back to work the week of the 1st oct for sure. It has been a long and slow journey,but through it all, I have not wavered form my commitment to the new me.
I havent had chocolate chips or junk food for the whole 4 months. Even when I was layed up in bed and had nothing else to do but watch TV(it gets boring after the 1st day), I still stuck to my planned eating regime.
So I know I will see this through for the rest of my life. My family has type 2 diabetes via my nan and dad, so I need to slim down for my health overall. And fitting into some cool new clothes is also a motivator for sure
The last few weeks have been really slow going for me weight loss wise. I know i'm doing the right thing but it doesnt seem to want to budge on the scales.
I feel so much better and my clothes are fitting much better and I have even gone down two sizes in my jeans. So that is fantasitic.
I guess I would still like to see that scale move downwards though.
So that is where I am up to in my journey.
Walking 30 mins a day and eating low kilojoule low fat meals.
I also have an underactive thyroid so my metabolism can be a bit sluggish.
I plan to take it one day at a time.
I love this forum with all the ideas and support. I look forward to following everyones success for the long haul ......
