I'm half way there!

Today I'm spoiling myself with a bunch of digi flowers ....




















just because ....

... I made it half way towards my ideal weight!!!

It's such a great feeling to know that I am 10 kg (22lb) lighter than what I was 8 weeks ago! I joined Sureslim 2 months ago out of pure desperation because I just couldn’t do it on my own. Needless to say – their customized eating plan which was designed just for me based on my blood test results, age, weight, etc, etc – really works!

I know that the last half will not be as easy (not that the first half was easy by any means!!!) but I'm realistic about it and will allow more time for myself to loose the last 10 kg. My aim is to loose at least 500 gram each week - that means 20 weeks from now - by the end of Feb '09, I should be there. Still sounds like forever to me but with the fast pace my life is going at the moment I know it will be over soon.

Only problem is that all the year-end functions, Christmas, New Year and my boat trip still lies ahead. I will just have to be strong during those times and look past all delicious goodies and chew on the lettuce leaves underneath! L

My willpower is now driven by the weight that I have already managed to loose. I’m not prepared to give up half way. I will have to stick it out to the end.

I also know that the real battle will only start once I reach my goal weight. I know from experience that keeping the weight off is even more difficult than loosing it in the first place. The only thing that works is a disciplined healthy lifestyle.

But it’s sooooo hard when there are so much yummy things around!

Yikes – life is hard!

well done! you must be feeling so great! this time of the year is always difficult to lose weight and then to stay slim and trim. all the yummy things to eat. at least it's summer so salads and things like that are a lot more appealing than in the winter. Well done. keep it up!!!

I have been glancing at your weight-loss ticker from time to time and I must say that I am proud of you - 10kg is 20 x 500g bricks of butter - that's an accomplishment, girl - keep on keeping on ...

Love, Tracy

Way to go and well done. I know the feeling. Keep it up. What is inspiring for me is the weight I have lost and the fact that I am down a whole size!! Keep it up.

Have a treat, but remember to leave the rest for everyone else, that way you won't feel deprived.
