I cannot believe how long it has been without blogging.

My life is wonderful. I am comfortable with myself and very happy with the progress that I am making, this is not all just about weight loss. It is about all the changes that have happened in my life since I started on my journey of self-discorvery.

I helped my son look his children for a week over the holidays and coped with this. Yes I got very tired but after I had a good nigth sleep, I woke up fine the next morning. Before if I had been so tired I would ahve taken 3 or 4 days or more to improve again.

Even the way I think now, before when tired I would buy takeaway as I thought with was easier, now my thoughts are that by the time you drive there, order, wait and then home, it is easier to go home and put a meal in the microwave to warm up. I really believe this is so much quicker and easier.

I usually have about 6 meals in the freezer that I have cooked before hand to make it easier. I do admit that I had one meal of the news twister from KFC which was a BLT with grilled chicken but when I checked on the calories and sodium it just is not worth it. I thought this was healthy. I learnt my lesson the hard way.

I have been so busy dealing with family issues that my exercising has dropped off a bit. But not really concerned about this at the moment becasue I am busy. It must count for something. I am not stressed either which has surprised me.

This year I have lost a total of 3 .3kgs which is around 7 pounds.

Cooking a lot of really healthy meals now. Using a dietitic cook book I borrowed from a friend. Even though my sugar levels are normal I still think it is helping.

I was udpdating my award today to include the 20kgs total loss when I realised that I had not put in the 2 year Spark Anniversary so this was a bit late in coming.

I can also give other people the support that they need in the family.

This has been a long eventful journey I have made so many changes that it is so exciting to wonder what I am going to like in another 6 months. I have still got a long journey ahead but I will get there.

1. food, it is a way of life now
2. get over being tired so much easier.
3. do not need a afternoon nap nearly everyday, only very occassional now.
4. not so judgemental of me.
5. I do not beat myself up anymore. I know I can right any mistake I make.
6. feelings about me have changed.
7. feeling well and feeling great.

I am incredible, I am worth it. I do love me. I am a fantastic person. I ahve come a long way.

Here's to continuing the journey to greatness.

I must also have blood test next week as it has been a while wince I had one. I am hoping for some good results.
