I haven't blogged for a long time or what feels like a long time. Now the count down is on to something really exciting so I wanted to get my thoughts down on paper.
On June 10 of this year I will be starting a two week residential program with Nu Yu which is apparently Australia's premier weight loss retreat. I am not sure which part I am looking forward to the most - starting the program with lots of activity, yummy meals and learning new weight loss things or just going on holidays from work and the rest of my life for two weeks. :)
When I booked the program earlier this year I weighed 114kg but was down from 116kg (my heaviest ever recorded weight) where I started the year. Today I had my medical with my GP for the program and weighed in at 110.5 with clothes on!So I am very happy about that.
I am not anwhere where I thought I would be at this time of the year. Had I stayed on track I was aiming to be 99kg by the end of this month. Still sometimes life gets in the way of tracking, eating well and exercise (when you let it) and I am still proud to have not given up and to have lost 4.5kg this year.
Now I just need to stay on track while I count down the days until I leave, stop drinking black tea (a requirement of the program) and start thinking about exercise clothes that I could actually wear in public!
