4.8 Kilograms

DietBlog: I have officially lost 4.8 kilograms… That’s over 10 pounds! I’m a little shocked myself. My usual Monday meeting was cancelled because of the public holiday so I headed off tonight to Glebe to visit another group. I honestly had no clue what to expect when I stepped on the scales. It seemed like I’d been losing some more, especially after that bush walk yesterday. (In fact, when I stepped on the scales last night I’d lost an extra kilo or two in water weight! But I hydrated really well today so I don’t think that had any lasting effect, fluid-wise.) I also had some residual guilt from the hamburger and fries I had for dinner last night. I know I more than earned it from the exercise, but I still had this irrational fear that it would cancel out all the good stuff I’ve been doing. So when the weigher man wrote down my weight, I did a total double-take. I said to him: “Are you sure? I’m soooo close to five kilos!” He smiled and checked it again. “I could almost fudge it… but nah, not quite” he grinned. That’s cool; I’m sure Emily will be happy I saved my first victory for our regular meeting next week.

Nearly five kilos in three weeks… Man, that’s so fast. I honestly can’t believe how easy it’s been. I don’t want to sound like a Weight Watchers shill, but this program is really workin’ for me. No, actually, I’m doin’ the work. But I needed the framework. I have officially now walked to work every day for three weeks (30 minutes; and once it was raining!). This week will be my fourth yoga class and I’m really looking forward to it. I had my second squash lesson on Sunday. I’m still drinking the occasional beer or glass of wine, and we’re still going out to eat at least once a week. I’ve even stopped thinking about food so damn much (except for one notable nightmare last week when I dreamed I gobbled down half a package of Lik-M-Aid). Now I just need to keep it up for three more months…

  1. Wow; congratulations! I think that demonstrates a tremendous amount of self-discipline.

  2. I told you that you were looking thinner, and your jeans kept falling down all day when we were bush walking, I mean really a month ago those jeans didn’t even fit you! good job!

  3. Awesome work, Kris – so close to your 5kg bookmark!!

  4. Nice one Kris. Seems we’re all at it as I’ve been losing weight too. Just was doing 40 mins walk each night. Went from 85 to 76 in 4-5 weeks.

    Don’t know what I am now since I came back from a skiing holiday in Colorado been sitting on my fat ass playing online games too much. Need to crank up the ole exercising again.

    My ideal weight is around the 67ish kg area.

    Good luck with the rest of the diet!
