Staying with friends at the moment who live in a beautiful house on the outskirts of Sydney which is quiet foresty. For some reason the exact placement of their house means that I can not get a phone or internet signal and they do not have broadband at home so I am forced to go to the mall to get reception!
Well thats my excuse for the seemingly useless items I have been buying lately - I mean we ALL need a nose hair trimmer right?!
Since the beginning of Feb I have lost 10 kilos (22 lbs) - 7 kilos from the juice fast I started Feb 1st and then 3 kilos since then.
I am not even TRYING, its just coming off. From the therapy I have been doing there seems to be a bit of switch that has been flicked in my brain and I now find the "decision" between junk and healthy is less of a decision and more of a want for healthy food. This helped immensely as I came off the juice fast and was sensible and considerate of my poor old junk stuffed body for a change :)
I have slipped up once or twice but beating myself up is no longer a national past time and I simply get over it and keep going.
Therapy has been the key for me to finally find a way out of the ongoing bad decisions and unhealthy eating - its early days but I am already so grateful for what I have achieved after only 5 or 6 sessions - definitely worth it.
Only 6 weeks ago I was considering lap band surgery as a last resort...how things have changed in such a short time.
And YES - one more day to go!!!
I am off to the health farm tomorrow to start my water fast and am about to purchase a sodastream (those at-home carbonated drink makers) so I can add some fizz to my plain water for a change every now and then!
Will drop in more often when I am not living in the black hole of calcutta (well - internet wise that is!).
P.S. Sitting here with my skinny latte and watching another customer who has arrived in a wheelchair -perhaps MS or Parkinsons?
The effort and skill he puts in to simply drink his coffee and the resulting pleasure he is clearly getting from this simple daily event makes me step back and think HOW LUCKY so many of us are...
We too often take just the simple act of drinking a cup of coffee for granted, don't you think?
