Day 236: Week 34 Weigh-In – Another Life Changing Target Smashed

This has been a horrendous week but as the title implies, I have some good news to share.

I wrote about my blip last Friday morning. It actually got worse than that. And then another blip on Monday night when I was in too much pain to be able to prepare a meal. Plus my period was on.

Excuses excuses excuses. Life is all about choices. I made some wrong choices on my diet this week, and it might happen again in this marathon quest but for now, I am back on track and I must keep going.

The good news is that I got back on that horse and even though I had gained silly weight from my blips as my body reacts insanely to carbs, I managed to lose all the gain plus a little more.

This week I have lost 0.5 kg; that is 1.1 pounds.

But more importantly, today’s weight is 89.6kg. Not only am I thrilled to be 80something but my BMI has gone from 48.5 when I started this diet weighing 124.4kg, which is very high risk Morbidly Obese Class III to just under 35, which is low risk Obese Class I.


I celebrate becoming Obese Class I, changing my life and lowering my risks for illnesses including heart attacks, strokes, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and even breast and bowel cancer.

The next stop in my BMI journey will be BMI classification Overweight. This will happen when my weight drops to 76.6kg. I am only 13 kg (28.6 pounds); a teeny weeny bit over 2 stones away from this target. The last time I was anywhere near 76.6 kg was when I was 18 years old.

My 42 years old heart skips a bit to realise that I am only two stones away from a weight I haven’t been anywhere near since I was a teenager.

I have no doubt that there will be other obstacles in my weight-loss journey.

I may stumble and fall but I have to remain strong and promise myself that for the first time in my life, I will get to the end of a weight loss journey.

If I fall, I get up and keep going. I owe it to myself to get to a healthy weight.

I must get to the end of this quest. I must complete this journey of self love.

The three visuals below from Model My Diet say it all; my weight at the beginning, my current weight and the future weight that takes me to a healthy BMI. I am more than half way through my weigh-loss quest.
