Getting Real

I think I may have a new addiction coming on - The 12WBT Forums! Everyone I have "met" so far has been very supportive and very informative. I am looking forward to the challenge to begin and think I am getting in to the right head space. Hoorah!

So part of getting real for me is acknowledging what I have done to myself over the past 7 months. I've gone from someone who was exercising 4-6 times a week to no exercise at all for the past 6 months. I have virtually regained the 15 kilos I lost last year. My disappointment is palpable. But I'm not going to beat myself up about it - I need my energy for getting back on track.

The scales informed me this morning that I have hit 105 kilos.. Ouch. Reality hurts.

I will be measuring my centimetres too because I don't lose weight easily. Last year in a period of 3 months I only lost 6.5 kilos but went from a Size 20 to a Size 16. I lost heaps of centimetres from my tummy, thighs and waist as I built heaps of muscle.

So, it's time to get real. No more dwelling in the glories or failures of the past but focus on the now and get my butt moving!


  1. I totally relate to what you're posting. I lost about 25kgs 5 years ago and only kept it off for about a year and half. I've struggled ever since. But since taking control and taking responsibility for my own destiny, things are starting to change slowly. Great idea about the measurements, good luck!

  2. Hi Michelle! Still new to this blogging business so somewhat slow! Thank you for commenting on my blog. I don't feel like an empty echo now!
