I am well and truly on the home stretch now, and I am feeling fine.
So this week, I hit a massive weight loss milestone. So, I guess I better tell you guys… I am officially under 100kg… yay.
Honestly, if you had told me this time last year that I would be celebrating reaching 99 kilos, well I would have laughed in your face.
But here we are, and I am. And, in fact, I lost 2 kg this week so I am now down to 98kg.
I am still a long way from where I want to be. I am healthiest around 75kg, so that leaves me with 23kg to go. And sometimes, the thought of how far away I am really knocks my socks off. It’s almost enough to make me through in the towel.
But then I remember this amazing quote from one of my sons favourite movies.
When I started this challenge, I was 110kg. That was only 7 weeks ago. When I was full term with Imogen, I was over 120kg. That was only 5 months ago. I may still have a long way to go, but I know I can do it because I have already come so far.
So I have 3 weeks to go, and I am really going to push it. I’m really aiming to hit 95kg by the end of the challenge.
Wish me luck!
