Follow Me In My Determination To Change

I thought if I shared my journey I would be more likely to succeed.

Early Morning Exercise

I am away at a conference (surprise, surprise) in Long Beach, california. Each morning there is a Chi Gong class, which seems really gentle and relaxing, altough I can feel every muscle in my legs!

A friend (or at least he was), took this photo. Last year I would have hated to have a picture of my backside taken, but actually I quite like this.

Sssh something is happening

After 7 weeks of no change, the scales have moved a bit, not much and not enough to get excited about but I now have less than 10kg to go. Thanks to everyone for your support I have really needed it, it has been getting me down. But then I get a picture like this and think Life is Good.

I Need A Bigger Suitcase

When I was fat, I was really good at packing. A few staple items and just flat shoes. I could do a week on hand luggage, and I mean UK hand luggage, not what you get away with in the US.

But now, I have to pack sports kit, and shoes, lots of shoes, I want high ones, ones to match the lovely dresses I can now wear, and ones to walk a lot in. I want to show off looking good and that means more in my suitcase. And then I want to shop!!! This getting fit is a hard life.

Goodbye Outsize Clothes

For as long as I can remember this has been my most frequented shop. In the uk this is the shop for outsize people, and now I have cancelled my subscription to their catalogue.

A Most Horrible Thought

I fly a lot, and this photo is the overhead locker of a CRJ regional jet (yep I fly too much), anyway it says limit 27kg, and I have lost 31kg which is good it is lost as it wouldn't all fit in here.
