I met my goal weight!!!! BUT.... (pics)

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

This morning the scale said this

18.3kg lost! My goal was 18kg, so I had exceeded my target. It means I have lost over 20% of my original body weight!

And my face looked like this emoticon

I couldn't possibly be at my goal weight, could I? Not the day after Christmas! No... But the photo doesn't lie!

I look like this

To celebrate I got myself a charm for my bead bracelet. It is a dangly 18.

However, I am still not entirely happy with my body. Don't get me wrong, I am THRILLED that I have lost 18kg, and I look and feel so much better than I did. But I think I can lose a bit more, and I want to lose a bit more. I still have a bit of fat around my belly and thighs, so I need to lose a bit more weight to try and shift a little more of the fat. I have decided to set a new goal weight of 65kg. I won't be trying to lose while I am only my holiday (I will be thrilled to maintain!), so I am going to try and lose a little more before I go and then focus on losing the last 4kg when I get back.

A HUGE thank you to all my spark friends for your advice, support, and love during this journey. I couldn't have done it without you guys!

**Forgot to put the weight in pounds for the metrically challenged (said with affection!!). 18.3kg is 40 pounds**

    Congrats girl. I had to type it in to see how much you weigh and what you've lost in pounds; That's a lot of weight. How on earth did you reach goal at Christmas time. You must have been a very good girl, and Santa awarded you the prize.
