I wasn't sure where to post this, so I figured that here would be as good a place as any.
Today is my 45th birthday and my original goal (set in the middle of January, 2004) was...
"To have maintained a 'healthy' weight for 12 months by the time I turned 45."
I reached my lowest weight in the middle of March, 2006, which puts me right on target for this birthday. I have gained a few kilos (2 to 4, depending on the day) but I think that is because my body didn't like sitting that low. I am still healthier, fitter and lighter than I have been for most of my adult life, so I figure that I have certainly reached my goal.
It is a funny feeling to be at this point, as I didn't really know what I was doing 3 and a half years ago. I had NO idea how quickly I would lose the weight, so I pretty much just grabbed my 45th birthday out of the air. It seemed to have worked out pretty well though. Now, I obviously intend to maintain this healthy weight for LIFE now, so I need a new goal. I would love to make my new goal 'helping others towards their healthy lifestyle', but things are a little hectic at the moment to take too much on, so I'm not sure how well I can do that. I'll have to see what happens I suppose. At the moment I am going to spend a little time enjoying the moment and relaxing over the school holidays.
Take care all,
Losing weight has given me a "Freedom" that I had never previously experienced as an adult... and I am LOVING it!!!
160kg (2004)... 73kg (2006)... Working on maintaining.
