Spring Fever

Is there anything more invigorating then when after a long and cold winter, the sun starts shining again? I don't really like the heat, but even I feel inspired by the onset of Spring. I'll probably want to shoot myself by January when the inevitable heat wave sets in, but right now it is lovely.

Today I went for a walk outside during my lunch break, not for exercise, but for the pure pleasure of getting fresh air and sunshine. I'm not sure if I have ever done that before. It felt weird to do something that involves exercise for enjoyment and because I genuinely want to, not feel I should.

Who knows, maybe I would like summer a whole heap more if I wasn't so fat. If I wasn't dealing with the chaffing and I could wear cute summer dresses. Maybe it wouldn't be all that bad?

Do you know that I have never had a 'skinny' summer? By skinny, I mean that I was under 100 kilos. All my best weight loss attempts seem to happen in winter and then I crash and burn in the summer. This year I want things to be different, I need things to be different. So I am going to be under 100 kilos by summer and I am going to stay under 100 kilos for the entire duration of summer. This means I can't starve myself to get there and then binge eat once I meet my goal. Been there, done that before!

***Mark my words, by December 1st I will be under 100 kilos***
That gives me about 3 months to lose 10 kilos- completely doable.


  1. You can totally do that! I just have to say it seems so strange that you are celebrating spring, when we are heading into fall!

  2. You Can Do It!!

    I'm having my first "skinny" summer and loving the hell out of it! Halter tops, shorts and all!

  3. YOU CAN DO IT!!

    Oh I just noticed Tracy above me said the same thing!!!

    and nearly 5kgs in a month is sensational - congrats.


  4. Hey, Tully, you can do this. If I can do it (2.5kg to go and I'm under the 100 for the first time in I don't remember how long), then you can do it.

    The reason I know this?
    Cos you want it. And you want it for you and no one else.

    Keep up the awesome work.

  5. My word you can do it!! We are the same weight at the moment ... And I AM going to be under 100!! I promise!!
    Together we can make this happen!!


  6. I long to float around in pretty summer dresses too feeling light and cool instead of hot and bothered. I'm right there with ya!


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
