Getting skinny...

  • Nov. 2nd, 2014 at 9:23 AM
I've decided to refrain from posting my weight-loss statistics on Facebook because my sister is getting disheartened at how quickly I'm shrinking... and she isn't!

Today, being first Sunday of the month, was "weigh and measure before breakfast" day. I am so close to my target weight of 70kgs it's almost guaranteed I'll be there by Christmas. Reason being - I lost nearly 6kgs (12.5lbs) in the last month!

I had targeted 75kgs but I'm now 1.25kgs below that, at 73.775 kgs. Overall since I began this latest round of stats (Boxing Day, 2011) I've lost 44cms overall, and 16kgs. Mind you, in February 2013 I was at my heaviest at 92.7kgs so you could say I've lost 18kgs in total.

I'm pleased, very pleased. Although the new jeans I bought just last week are already beginning to feel loose!

Of course, my Slimming World stats are higher because I'm wearing clothes for that weigh-in, but I've found the lightest pair of track pants I own and always put on a light top under layers.

By the time my belongings arrive from Australia nothing will fit - but I'll keep them so when my sister gets skinnier she can have them if she likes - nothing like hand-me-ups!

Well obviously there's the metabolism difference - mine seems to be firing quite well whereas hers seems to be more sluggish. We're eating mostly the same but she does snack more on the bad stuff and also skip meals which, of course, makes her metabolism slow down even more.

She also has back problems and can't move around as easily.

We really need to sit down each weekend and work out a menu for the coming week, taking into account the craziness of her schedule on Wednesdays, eating late on Thursdays (after we've been to SW group) and still being in holiday mode - I slept in until nearly 10am today!

suggest adaptive yoga to her, I can not tell you how much it has helped me with my back issues

The main problem is she is a Queen procrastinator - we have discussed ad infinitum what needs to be done to sort out the chaos here so I can get properly set up... and bugger all has been done.

I haven't pushed to get things done because it is her house and her chaos, and I don't particularly fancy being kicked out on the streets, and until the other situation is sorted out (the one that is stressing her out considerably and will be dealt with in two weeks and was the reason why she didn't visit last year) I don't want to add to her stress levels. I'm still de-stressing myself as it is, but we both know that just before Christmas my belongings will be arriving and that is our deadline.
