I am still 100% on my diet.
I can’t wait for the full reveal of the butterfly I will become once I have lost all the excess weight.
I appreciate that this won’t happen until next year but I have the rest of my life to enjoy being slim and healthy.
It is a marathon and not a sprint.
The weight loss has slowed down but I am thankful for how far I have come and very excited about seeing my body changing, feeling better in myself and being complimented on my weight loss.
However, I am doing this journey for myself.
I owe it to myself to be the best that I can be.
My official Friday weigh-ins take place downstairs fully clothed in the same spot and wearing the same clothes that I have worn since Day 1. However, I weigh myself upstairs in the bathroom daily, wearing my lighter nightdress.
I am thrilled to announce that this week, I hit the milestone that I am now below 200 pounds upstairs. Today’s weigh-in upstairs is 90.7kg which is 199.5 pounds.
Next week, I will step down from Step 2 to Cambridge Step 1 Sole Source+ which involves eating four Cambridge products and a milk allowance usually 200ml of skimmed milk but given I can’t stand skimmed milk, I have worked out the calorie equivalent of semi-skimmed milk which is 145ml. I will be eating between 650 to 736 calories depending on what products I have. Hopefully this will shock my body into submission…or at least, increased weight loss!
I have a couple of exciting mini-targets coming up and I can’t wait.
I am less than 2 pounds from weighing eighty something kilos!
I am less than 3 pounds from my BMI being classified as Obese Class I. I know I know! But hey, next stop from Obese Class I is Overweight and I haven’t been classified that BMI since I was a teenager.
I started this journey at very high risk super-morbidly obese Class III, so getting down to low risk Obese Class I is an achievement I will be very proud of.
I am also less than 4 pounds from weighing 13 stone something. Given that I started this journey at over 19 and a half stone, I can’t wait.
Week Thirty Two’s Verdict: today’s weight 91.1kg, week’s weight loss 0.6 kg (1.32 pounds); total weight loss; 33.3 kg; 73.3 pounds; 5 stones 3 pounds
