Thanks for the support guys.

It has been a tough couple of weeks in my personal life, and I am relieved that I didn't stack on the weight. My sister had a brain tumor removed in Nov 2010, it left partially paralysed and subject to seizures. She had a seizure on Mon 10th Jan and went into a coma - she died a week later without regaining consciousness. I spent a fair bit of time away from home - staying with my parents in Melbourne, exercise and normal eating went out of the window :lol:
But as I said - big relief that I didn't stack on too much weight - in fact the weight went down - although not as much as usual. Someone said that is good sometimes to get away from weightloss routine from time to time.

Well, getting back into it now - with a bit over a week of Jan left I only have to shift 500g to reach target, so should make it.

Thanks JP

Yes - still a bit out of touch and finding it a bit hard to get motivated with the exercise, although eating is pretty much unchanged. Weight still coming off, thankfully. :lol:

Reached the end of January target which is good.

I presume your holiday went well.

cheers

Thank Shay

Can't get enough of the hugs lately - still, life goes on - people leave this world, and thankfully new life enters it. :D

The weight loss is the one constant at the moment, and regardless of all the other 'going ons' I'm still losing an average of about 2kg per week.

I have managed to end January 2.4kg ahead of target which I am very happy with. I wasn't expecting to reach my goal weight until the end of the year, but it is looking as though it might be possible by about October.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss Brendan! Good on you for keeping your eating on track though, it is so easy to start comfort eating in such an situation.

Lots of hugs & strength to you!

Thanks Gutsy - and thanks everyone, for the support.

I think the focus on the eating habits, and the weight loss, has been good as far as coping with the loss is concerned. Just wish I could get motivated to get the exercise going again. When the weather cools down perhaps! :roll:

I'm really sorry to here you have been going through such a rough time Brendan. To be dealing with something so hard and continuing in your weight loss journey nonetheless, you are an inspiration.

Keep moving forward!

aww Brendan, so sorry to hear about your sister. xx

You really are an inspiration ... being able to deal with such a sad thing but still not turn to comfort eating and to have reached your goals so well. I'm very proud of you!

Hi everybody - I am still in the land of the living despite my absence from the forum. Weight loss has slowed down to a snail's pace - I know why though - only exercising once a day, and eating two largish meals per day instead of the one.

Weighed in at 119.7kg this morning - I'll try to pop in a bit more frequently - and gain some inspiration from members.

You're still in a downward trend mate and although you have stalled a bit at least you haven't fallen off the wagon.. sounds like you know the reasons you have slowed down but anyway gradual losses will be more sustainable for the long haul, best of luck..

GREAT to see you again, Brendan! Was worried you might have been off the wagon so it's good news to see your still on the way down. :D

It's good to be back Metalcharm :)

I was just checking my BMI and I was pleased to find out that I am nearly down to 'Obese' range of 30 - 35 (I am 35.8, or 35.5, depending on where I get the calculation) :D I have gone through the morbid obese, and the nearly through the severely obese ranges ... How cool will it be to be just 'Obese' - Yay!
