A small loss

Well I had a small loss, only 300g but a loss is a loss. Last week was not a good week, because it was my birthday I stupidly gave myself a licence to eat whatever I liked and not eat good things. Well this week I have revoked that licence and will be trying VERY hard. I will be trying very hard beccause I have now lost 28kgs, so I've only got 2kgs to get to 30kgs which is AWESOME and I would really love to do that by next week's weigh in. The day after is my husband's first book launch and I would love to have made that small goal by then, that would be so fabulous.

So this week I will eat well, drink lots of water and fit in some form of exercise every day. I've shaken off the negativity and back to being positive. I would really, really love to be at my goal weight by my birthday next year, I think that's most realistic. I think things may get harder as I get closer to goal and I don't want to bum myself out. So bring it on.

It's amazing how easily negatvity gets in and takes hold isn't it? Someone recently said about me behind my back that losing weight basically hasn't made me "look" any better. I know I'm no model but still, pretty harsh, I don't think I'm that bad. This really hurt and I'm finding lots of other negativity creeping in. I'm finding that I'm not seeing the weight I've lost anymore but instead seeing all the things wrong and how far I still have to go *sigh*.

Also thinking negative things about myself not to do with my weight. I'm thinking how I'm not as intelligent as some other people I know, particularly my husband and probably most of my twitter followers and possibly a lot of my friends. I'm not a complete dullard don't get me wrong but I do sometimes wish I was smarter.

Do you find that once you have 1 negative thought others start creeping in too? I have to admit it's starting to pull me into a funk. Definitely need to shake it off. Anyway it was my birthay on the 17th and I bought some new clothes so here are some pics and as usual the original ones for comparison sake. I also got more new hair and new glasses :D I'm finding it good to be improving myself in other ways as well losing weight, I also have an orthadontist appointment to see about getting my teeth fixed :D

A different kind of post

Hi Everyone, I'm doing a different kind of post this week because I have something to tell you all. My wonderful and talented husband has had a book published that will be released later this month, it's his first book, but not his last (stay tuned for more books). I hope you don't mind me sharing this with you all but I am just so proud of him and want to share his work with you. You can pre-order it right now at http://www.aduki.net.au/, here's a pic of the cover:

I hope you will buy it and I hope you will enjoy it :D

Thanks :D

New photos

Right, time again for new photos, it's been a little while and I have new hair yet again, gotta love new hair. Getting my hair done, doing it nicely myself and putting make up on always makes me feel so much better about myself, does it do that for you too? Have of course put first photo as comparison, so that photo I was 125kgs, new photo I am 98.7kgs, total loss of 26.3kgs. The jeans I am wearing are size 18 and they are too big as one of the photos will show, the pants in the original pic are size 24.
