I am living healthier. I don't always get it right, I don't expect myself to. I know I will slip but when I do I get up and keep going.

This is a lifestyle change. Diets don't work. I am not going to lose the weight, get to goal and then go back to what I was doing before - that is what got me to this point in the first place! What I am going to do is permanently change my eating and exercising habits.

I am exercising - and I'm enjoying it! I'm also prioritising it. It isn't always top of my to do list, I don't always want to do it, but I will find ways to squeeze in a walk, a swim, a bit of time on Wii Fit and or a bit of ST ALMOST every day. It doesn't have to be every day. Some days it just ain't gunna happen - but guess what - that's OK! As long as it gets done MOST days.

I've lost 10kg so far. I've got about another 30 to go. 25% of the way there. I am already feeling so much better and it is always nice to hear people say "You look like you've lost weight" or "You're looking great".

I know the results will likely slow down a little, but as long as day in day out I'm living healthier by eating better and exercising more I'm going to be ahead in the long run and bit by bit I'll slim down.

I am allowing myself treats EVERY day!
