When last we met, I was preparing for the City 2 Surf and lamenting the weight I’d put back on. A lot has changed since then: I’ve been seeing an acupuncturist; I’ve given up Diet Coke completely (cold turkey!); and I’m back to running regularly. The Snook and I are even training for another race in a few weeks. My stomach problems have mostly cleared up, but while my acupuncturist is happy to take the credit my doctor is still puzzled as to the cause. Hence, I’m having the damn gastroscopy next Tuesday. (Not looking forward to it.) In terms of concrete numbers, I’m happy to report that I’m back down in the land of the sevens. HURRAH! I’m still 1.5kg above my goal weight, but I know I can get there. Overall it wasn’t the greatest winter, but Spring is just around the corner (three more sleeps!) and I’m sooooo looking forward to it.

  1. I’m just a random reader who has been following your blog for a while, and I have to tell you how much you inspire me. When I look at pics like the one you posted a few days ago with the funky sweater thing (obviously, I’m not a knitter), I am amazed by how terrific you look and how much progress you have made. I actually started running races recently (small ones – nothing like your 14k), and I attribute it to the inspiration I’ve gathered from your site. So – THANK YOU, and congrats!

  2. Awww, thanks Cortney! You have no idea how much comments like yours spur me on. It’s hard to do this stuff and stay motivated from day to day, especially once the shock of transformation starts to wear off. But your encouragement really helps!
