I'm happy LOL

Saturday, January 19, 2013

I have had a great start for the year, as many of you know I went away for a week to help Susie SUSIEPH1) celebrate her 70th birthday. A long drive but I did it with no problems at all and it was a very hot day when I left.

I learnt lots while I was with Susie about eating and I have increased my calories, which i confess I have been told to before, but I knew better. Well so far this year I have lost 2.3 kgs. which is about 5 lbs. So I am over the moon with.

I also went over to Whyalla with my son to pick up his children today and we had decided to drive down the coast, so I have drove another 460kms (about 285 miles) today.

For so many years I have said "I Can't" I have now proved I can and now must get this my head and realise I can do anything I want.

I can do it. What a great feeling.

    It really IS a wonderful thing when we discover that a lot of our limitations are things we created--and those personal perceptions can be changed... emoticon that is emoticon

    Totally awesome Wendy! So proud of you. Sometimes we just have to do things that don't seem totally sensible to us and just give it a shot. Congratulations on the weight kicked to the curb!

    Well done Wendy. Yes we can do anything we put our mind to. Congratulations on your weight loss so far this year...brilliant news.

I too had to increase my calories last year, I went from averaging 800-1000 now I am meant to have 1200. I still don't always get to the 1200 but I try. Yep it helped me to start losing again. My initial 30kg was lost on the 800 but I stayed there for several years, now I am down another 17kg.

Keep up the good work and stay strong dear lady.

    You realize that you wrote KGS and not km ? I say kg instead of other measurements too. It shows how much we think of it!
Many congrats on your roadtrips!
