Loss of 0.6kg - YAY !!!!!!!

I am now down to within 1kg of goal !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And, to think that I nearly didn’t go to weigh tonight. I have been feeling fat and frumpy and bloated and just awful today (seem to have recovered from the head cold that kept me indoors most of the weekend) and was contemplating not even bothering to go. In fact, everything just seemed to hard for me today.
Anyway, jumped on the scale and was so pleased when I saw the magic figure of 68.0 come up then it flashed down to 67.9 then back up to 68.0 and after another flash down, settled on 68.0 (not that I got my week’s money back - but at least I can go and weigh before paying in the future !!!!)
I am so happy about finally getting there - I am now in the same position that I was in in May 2000 - I never thought that it would take me this long to get back to goal, but then, I never thought that I would put on nearly double what I lost during the first half of 2000 either !!!!!
On my way home from work (while contemplating whether to go to weigh or not) I was trying to work out where the easiest and quickest place would be to go and buy a chocolate (or two !!) Now I think I will rather just have a WW hot chocolate dessert and keep focussed because I don't want to put on next week and have to pay again !!!! Hopefully I will be able to drop another 1-2kgs and then have that little to play around with without too much trouble.
I went to the chiro today and he has helped my back a bit - will be back to see him on Wednesday. Now that I am going to someone so much closer to where I work, it will be easier to get to see him when I can feel something needs to be done rather than waiting for our normal monthly adjustment - am sure that will do heaps to keep my back pain under control.
Am busy with a letter re the roll cages and in it I want to raise the issue of OH&S with regards to the height that the cartons are stacked at that we have to pack. While a flat top may not be the ideal height - it is certainly a lot better then the height that we are meant to pack from on the roll cages.
Take care everyone and have a great week !

TFTD : Ideals are like stars: You will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the sea-faring man on the ocean desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them, you reach your destiny.

Within 1kg of goal!!!!!
Way to go mate :)

How exciting to have such a good result when you werent' expecting it.

And isn't it great that you are back to 2000 weight. I love turning the clock back like that. Ok so you may have 'wasted' 5 years in some peoples view but I say that's far better than 'wasting' another 5 years!!

Congratulations girl....I am thrilled for you :)
And I'm sure Al and K are too.

You rock!!!

Cheers P

Whooo Hooooo. That is fantastic. You are now at my goal weight and I think you look super fantastic so I am very happy that I am aiming for that figure. But like you said - that goal is just my star to aim at and if I land on a star near by but a healthier fitter sexier star - then I will be happier with that.

Good on you for addressing the H&S issues. Have a fantastic day mate :)
