I promised myself that at the 10kg mark I would get a bra fitting. Well, I couldn't wait that long. I am almost (200g away!) at the 9kg mark and I knew I needed that fitting sooner rather than later.
I was a 16D. As of today I am a 14D! So I am down a band size but my boobs are exactly the same size! Yippeeeeee! I am so glad that my boobs have stayed put. They were my biggest worry going into this, because I really love my boobs, and I didn't want to lose them.
I now own 2 new bras in my new size. It is a holiday weekend here, so they were 30% off. Bargain! I don't want to buy much or spend too much money until I am at or close to my goal weight. With another 9kg to go I could easily drop another size, so there is no point spending a lot of money until I am at my goal.

I'll be chatting to someone at the gym or at work, and they'll notice my weight loss. Lovely, great. Then they ask if I'm done losing, and I say no, I have around 10kg left. Then they say, "Why do you want to lose more weight?!" So I tell them that is how much I have to go until my goal weight. Then the questions flood in. "Why did you pick that weight?", "Is it your lowest weight" etc. But not in a nice way, in a really judgey, condescending way. And it pisses me off! They tell me to stop losing weight, and to just be happy where I am. AND these are near strangers!
Whose business is it? Mine. I have a goal weight and I want to get to it. It is just a goal weight, if it isn't realistic then that is fine, but let me try first! I'm not going to think I have failed if I end up a couple of kilos above my goal.
Why do people feel the need to try to stop others losing weight? Are they jealous? Are they having trouble and want to feel better about themselves? Why?
I just really annoys me, and it happens all the time! People question how often I go to the gym, how much and what I eat, etc etc. It just goes on and on! It really gets on my nerves! If I was losing too much weight, or exercising too much or whatever then my boyfriend would say something. My mum would say something.
And THEN the latest women started telling me about these pills she is taking that eat fat. When I said I didn't take pills SHE got all defensive. OK, so it is bad for me to lose weight by eating right and exercising, but her losing weight using pills is fine? I don't understand...Surely my weight loss would stop at a healthy weight, whereas hers wouldn't if she were taking pills?
Ragh. The point of this post was to vent. I realise it is all over the place and not well written at all!

Weight goal: Lose a kilo. That seems achievable and would bring me to 78.6kg.
I lost 1.1kg! I now weigh 78.5kg and have lost 8.8kg total.
(American friends: Lost 2.5lb this month. Now weigh 173lb. Total 19.4lb)
Nutrition: Iím still focusing on getting in more fruit and veg and less junk. I am also going to start tracking more often. Lets aim for 3 days per week!
I didn't track much, maybe once a fortnight. I definitely ate more fruit and veg this month, and my eating was generally better.
Water: I drink heaps of water, this one is fine!.
Exercise: Run my first 5k!
I did it!! 42m04s.
Exercise #2: Start my new weights program. I met with my trainer last night and pretty much told him to give me a mans program. I told him I wanted to try high weight, low reps, and he was really excited to get started. Apparently I am the first woman to ever ask him for a program like that!
I am rocking my weights program. And, as a bonus, it only takes me 25-30minutes including the warm up! Lower reps = less time.
Weight goal: Get to the 10kg lost mark. That would require me to lose 1.2kg, which is doable. It would put me at 77.3kg.
Nutrition: Keep on, keeping on! I guess what I am doing is working, so why mess with success?
Water: I need to make sure I keep my fluid intake up during these colder months. Herbal tea is helping with this, and it gives me something warm to hold on to.
Exercise: Keep up with my current routine, which is 2 days boxing, 3 days weights and 1 run if I feel like it. Again, why mess with success? My boxing class is different every week, and my weights program changes every 6 weeks, so my body won't get used to anything.

I was at boxing (double class, because I'm hardcore) and there was an exercise where you had to do 50 punches and the push the pad holder to the other side of the room. I was partnered with the instructor. I pushed him across the room fairly easily and after the 4th one he said to me "When did you get so strong?!"
Yep, pretty much made my day!

I really didn't want to go to the gym tonight. Like, seriously. I told myself that if I went I could skip the walking lunges (ick) and sub in something else that I like better. That worked. No point skipping a whole workout just because I didn't want to do walking lunges.
I have discovered a new favourite dessert! And it is healthy too. Cocoa granola clusters (these have LESS sugar than the non cocoa kinds...!) with greek yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup. I've even had it for breakfast along with a piece of fruit, but it is a bit more sugar than I like in the morning, so I mainly save it for a dessert treat.
I have purchased little 50 calorie packs of baked chips and rice crackers to keep in my desk. Sometimes I really need an extra snack, especially if I am working late, and I find myself thinking of drive thrus and chocolate bars because I am hungry. This should be a good solution, as long as I keep them for emergencies and not for general snacking.
