Finally...



In case you can't see from the grainy photo, last Friday I weighed 99.5 kilos and finally broke the 100 kilo barrier for the first time in 3 and a half years. In the past 10 years I have broken the 100 kilos 3 times, but each time it has been for less then a month before I gained the weight back (and an extra 25 kilos or so). I know I won't gain it back again this time because everything about me and how I have done this is different.

I have always said that when I get under 100 kilos it makes all the difference and guess what, on Friday 2 of my friends commented on my weight loss and on Saturday I had more comments from family. Up until now I have barely had one person notice my weight loss (despite losing 29 kilos to date) and now all of a sudden everyone is asking me if I have lost weight.

I must admit I am really thrilled to have reached this milestone and I am walking with my head held a little higher and a swagger in my step this week.
