March did not exactly go according to plan. It was so off-plan that I don't think a plan even existed, as it turns out, there was a plan and that plan involved 'self-destruction'.
When you're the person losing the weight it is sometimes hard to see how far you have come.
Yesterday I looked at a photo of myself and OMG -
I'm still fat. But hang-on how bad did I look 16 kg's ago, when I wasn't gyming, when I wasn't cycling...when I wasn't working at it. There is the 'OMG' factor and there is the 'putting everything in perspective' factor
Over the last weekend I tried on a pair of 'skinny' jeans and a size 18 fitted beautifully - WOW - cannot remember when I last fitted into a size 18. Wake-up Call!! Woohoooo!! BUT - I did not buy the pair of jeans that made me feel like I was on top of the world that day. Today that changed and I walked into the store and bought a size smaller - I bought the size 16. This is a 'do or die' moment - those jeans will fit and soon. All of a sudden I have a goal I can see, touch and feel. It's real!!
How to keep that goal always in sight. Well - it's my wallpaper/theme for my Blackberry. Yep, the new addition in my life. Love my Blackberry.
