I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I was trying to lose some weight. I have decided to take this time each week to “weigh-in”. As I said in that previous post, I am doing this in order to “keep myself honest”, shouting out my triumphs and troubles will help me keep moving in the right direction (namely, a batter trouser size!).
It’s been a few weeks since my last Weight Watchers weigh-in. I had a real struggle during Christmas, but felt that I had gotten back on track over the last week or so. So, I weighed-in this week and found I had lost 1.7kg! Holy Cow, Batman! That is far better than I could have hoped for, and means I am back to 92.0kg. I have lost almost everything I had put on over the Christmas break.
Even better, success breeds success and I am now feeling more confident than ever. I’ve lost 10kg over the last six months, which I think is pretty good. There is still plenty more I can do (he says, having just finished off a big helping of pavlova), and I am looking forward to working with a fitness trainer starting in February. Exercise is my real weakness – I am inconsistent at best, and down right lazy most of the time. I need to change that mindset, and that is my next big goal.
Thanks for listening to me!

Well done on the loss! Exercise is not my strong point either. Pavlova! Shut up! Oh and you must have hot fish and chips on the brain “batter trousers” 😛
Everything is better battered! D’oh!
10kg is awesome! I lost weight before Xmas but I was totally derailed by the festive season and am scared to check the scales because I just know I’ll have put it on again. Gah.
Good work and I need to get back on it myself.
Thanks Sarah! I am sure things will get back on track for you, just as they have for me.
Well done, I’m so proud of you. I know we have both struggled at times but I think we are on the right track now. Can’t wait to see the PT whip you into shape – warning, there will be little spousal sympathy when you come home and moan about how sore you are!
Thank you, sweetie.
I think you’ll find the fitness trainer will make all the difference in the world. You have done an amazing job on your own, this will just take you to the next level. I love my trainer!
I am looking forward to “getting into it”. Thanks for dropping by!
I’m the same – exercise is my weak point. I lost over 7 kgs at the end of last year and whilst I am maintaining it so far, really need to get back into the exercising. Good luck!
Fantastic results. I’m struggling to lose weight myself. I am really good for a week and then fall of the wagon. Thanks for the motivation.
No worries! Thanks for dropping by!
Great work Nat. We all have this motivation thing to deal with. I think sustainability is a key ingredient to any fitness regime. My solution, in the past, has been to commit to something that I have to get fit for or suffer the consequences. Case in point being my current venture into Tassie. I’m getting too “mature” to keep this cycle going so keen to see your progress.
Oh, so now you’re going to live vicariously through me? I hope you’re prepared for disappointment! 🙂
Congrats – nothing better than when the scales make you feel good rather than disappointed.
I’ve shed my ‘easy’ 10kgs and now I have the the stubborn 5 to go. I did it by WW point counting only but now to shift the rest I’ll have to get exercising. But like you this is the part I find the hardest. Good luck and really an awesome first post!
I did the whole WW thing a couple of years ago. Lost 12kg, only to put it all back on again. Doh. Epic fail.
Well done at keeping it off.
You’re doing great! Good to hear Christmas wasn’t too hard on your waistline!
I really think the weekly weigh in is the biggest motivator. All the best!
