One month anni. incl. progress photos
Wednesday, October 16, 2013
Yesterday was my one month anniversary with SP - I decided to have a milestone weigh-in and measurements taken. I was surprised I had lost 0.8kgs since Sunday's weigh-in and for the month I had lost 7cms off my waist, 4cms off my hip, 1cm off my thigh and 1cm off my upper arm! When I started SP I took a front and side photograph and said that I would do before and after shots and upload them. So I did a progress shot and I have definitely shrunk! I wanted to wear my full bikini but the top didn't fit so I had to substitute for a sports top instead! I'm not here to be bashful when it comes to weight loss that's for sure - I see people larger than me in a bikini on the beach with not a care in the world!
I have remained fairly consistent with my calorie intake which has always been within the recommended range. Here is the 'Calorie Differential Over Time' graph which I love to look at often! I can see how my exercise is increasing as I gain strength and increase fitness. Now that's progress also!
Today I was scheduled for a hospital procedure however I received a call from the hospital a few days ago pushing it back a day, so I had to have one more day on that high carb/fat and low fibre diet and today I am on clear liquids only. The procedure is not until tomorrow afternoon which means when I wake up, nothing but water until 10am and then nothing to drink after that. I will hear today exactly what time it will be tomorrow afternoon but meanwhile I'm in for a very long 2 days without food. They said the latest I'll get out tomorrow is 4pm so by the time I get home and I probably won't be that hungry and it would have been about 40 hours since my last bite of food - Whaaaaa I'm the only one doing the 40 HOUR FAMINE - want to sponsor me??!! LOL
24 hours following the procedure I am not to do anything risky like drive or operate heavy machinery etc. etc. At least I won't have to worry about the 'don't drink alcohol' warning sticker because for the month of October I DON'T DRINK ALCOHOL - Yippee, got that one in the bag!
So I have consciously decided it is absolute REST time for me for the next 3 days - for the first two days I need to conserve energy (I'm starving and bored already and it's only 6.15am!). I am an active person, so I'll be climbing the walls in my head but that's ok.....
If I can lose weight then.......
I can handle this.......
I can handle anything.....
PS my dad sent me this link - he thinks he is so funny! This is a colonoscopy to music
Chow ! (Oh no! I was trying to say goodbye, but that word sound like food !!!!)
