I’m not failing, I’m just not succeeding as fast as I’d like!
I said that the other day and I have remember it. When I was in full on weight loss mojo back over a year ago now, I consistently lost around 1 kg a week. At the time I thought I was living a healthy, substainable lifestyle but really I think I did get a bit obsessive. Determination is good – it got me off the obese train and well out of the diabetes danger zone – but you can’t live your life with weight loss as your main priority forever.
I really have had it in my head that I HAVE to be under 80 kgs before I go to Japan. Like it’s the Japan rules or something. More importantly, I’ve wanted to fit back into this dress:
When that photo was taken, I was around 70 kgs and still had to wear gut sucking undies to control the bulging. I’m NOT going to be packing that dress – I’ve said goodbye to that dream. One day I’ll wear that dress again but in the meantime I’ll tell myself that polka dots are so two years ago.
Anyway good things that happened today:
- I might have another week’s work!
- the $AUD had dropped to 73 yen this morning but it’s rallied back to the 80s. Çome on Aussie dollar, come on, come on!
- I got home tonight and smelt something weird. If it had been someone else’s house, I’d have thought it was cleaning products… anyway, a minute later my housemate popped his head out of the bathroom and asked if we had any White King! OMG yes, it is possible to slip through portals to alternate universes! I’m pretty sure that I’ll wake up tomorrow and find it all a dream but in the meantime I’m going to revel in the pleasures of a clean house.
