When people ask me how I lost 87 kilos, my standard reply is "One sweat drop at a time."
In a very real sense this light hearted answer is right on the money.
Weight loss is a process of losing weight one bit (whether measured in sweat drops or kilos) at a time.
Consistency is the key. I was always concerned with the daily battle rather than the overall weight war.
My aim was to weigh less than my weigh in the day before.
I wasn't always successful but that was my aim and purpose.
When I discovered that my weight loss goal was 87 kilos I did pause for a bit thinking that it seemed a very large number.
But I settled myself down by say that it was what it was and that if that was what it is then that is what I had to lose.
I put it on - I had to take it off.
I don't think at the time that it even sunk into my skull that it was over half of what I weighed then.
Probably a good thing...it might have scared me off!
Ignorance is bliss some times...and I knew nothing...so it all seemed doable.
My simple approach was; lose one kilo - then do it again 86 times!
In reality it worked out harder than that - but basically the approached worked.
Just realised in my last post I wrote "morality" when I should have written "mortality".
Amazing what I difference one letter makes.
