Oh Skinny, I do feel for you!
You are on the right track to being that super fit and healthy person you want to be! You just have to stick to it. So far you are doing so well! It might take a year to your overall goal but just think of all those mini goals you WILL get to in the mean time. If you keep up the way your going you will be amazingly different come Christmas time. Maybe just look at some really short term things you can look forward to. Maybe a favorite pair of shorts/pants that you once fitted into in the next size down from your current size and just aim to get into them. A dress size should be somewhere between 5-10kgs. Your almost there! And when you get into those clothes, celebrate the occasion by doing something special. Even if its dress up in them and have a candlelit dinner with hubby one night and have him see the difference aswell.
Baby steps skinny! You will do it! It is so hard and I can empathise with you re the workplace. having been out of the wp for hte past 4 years, I am terrified of running in to old work colleague! But you know what i do? I use that fear to help fuel my motivation. When i start to get a little de-motivated, I picture the scenario of running in to people who i have not seen in ages and being a comfortable sz 12. Especially the ones who have seen me huge. I like to use that as my challenge. I want to show them i can be that again! I CAN AND SO CAN YOU!!!
Stick at it. don't be mad at yourself. You have had a child and its a stage in your life that had to happen and the new stage is starting. When you get to your goal weight and remain there for the rest of your life you will look back at these few years and be grateful for this time as it will teach you to be stronger. This is going to be a huge journey but you will feel incredible satisfied when you get to the end of it! You will fell very empowered to have changed your life around!
Come on, chin up. You need to stay being my WL buddy. Stay with me!!
