Ho, Ho, Ho.

Just want to shout out "MERRY CHRISTMAS" to all of my blog land friends. Don't think I will get the chance to later, so I hope every one has a safe and happy holiday.

End of Challenge

So I weighed in this morning at 79.7 kg (175.7 pounds). Woohoo, I'm finally under the 80 kg mark. I lost a total of 2.5 kg which really isn't that great but I'll take a loss any day. Over the 6 weeks I pretty much stayed the same for about 3 of them so I'm happy to have lost that weight. I know that it will never be regained and that is a truly wonderful feeling.
The biggest success I have achieved over these 6 weeks has not been the weight loss but has been the exercise. I now have a happy routine of doing classes and going walking. The motivation of the challenge helped me find a rhythm that I am determined to stick with.
Happy am I, going into the Christmas feasting season knowing that this will be the first year ever that I have not over eaten and that I will most likely lose weight this week :)
I Love My Band
PS: Merry Christmas Everyone

MIA - Sorry

Sorry I have not been on for 3 weeks. Life has been busy and not much in band-land has been going on. I'm pretty much the same weight as I was 3 weeks ago. 200gr down. I am now at 80.1 kg. I just can't seem to break the 80 kg mark. I've seen 80.1 now three times but keep bouncing up and then back to it again. It is starting to get a little frustrating but I know it is because of this crazy time of the year. My choices have not been great and my liquids have been up. So I guess I should be grateful to have lost 200 gr and not had a gain. There is 2 weeks till Christmas and I am determined to get below 80 by then.

My band has finally settled down and I am now able to eat most things again (minus bread & pasta) without PB'ing. This is such a great relief because I was thinking of getting an un-fill. I have noticed that it gets quite loose around TOM and after doing some reading I see this can be quite common.

It is really starting to heat right up here now. Last week we had a good few days over 40 (104). It is only gonna get hotter coming into January. I'm so happy to have a pool and the boys and I have been living in there.

Oh a NSV. I bought and fitted into my first size AU12 (US8) denim shorts in years. I am a firm size 14 (US10) in most things and all of my size 16 (US12) are now way to big. I started out this journey wearing tight 18 (US14) and now almost 5 months in I am fitting into 12's, that's 3 dress sizes. YAY!!! I've also had to throw out all my knickers and bras, much to my husbands glee. He much prefers my now lacy numbers ;-)

Well thanks for sticking around. I am going to try and get through some blogs today and catch up on everyone.

Cheers Nikki x
