Highest Weight: 129.7 kilos (285.3 lbs)

Goal Weight: 72.5 kilos (159.5 lbs)

Last Week: 75.2 kilos (165.4 lbs)

Total: 13.5 kilos (29.7 lbs)

I owe a very big thank you to the horrible stomach bug I have had for my fabulous weight loss this week. The worst seems to be over now but I still feel extremely weak and having hot and cold sweats as this virus seems to be fighting it's way from my system. The scales were even lower down earlier this week, but now that I have been able to keep some food and water down the numbers are creeping back up again.

It's very nice to see such low numbers on the scale and I just hope I can maintain the loss once I am completely rehydrated and maybe even lose a tinsy bit more next week. I am not expecting big losses for the next couple of weeks because my body seems to follow a pattern of having 2 weeks of good weight loss followed by 2 weeks of plateau or minor losses. Not to mention I am going on a mini 4 day break in a week and I am already nervous about the damage that will cause to the scales!

The good news is that I only have 1.5 kilos (3.3 lbs) to lose until I get to my pre-surgery goal of 72.5 kilos. It doesn't sound like much to lose, but I definitely don't think it will be easy. I have a bad habit of completely dropping the ball right before I meet my goals. To be honest, I am not sure if I have ever met a weight loss goal or challenge that I have set for myself, so I am hoping this will be the first.

The more weight I lose, the more excited I get about my body lift surgery. I am not sure if I could keep going with this diet if I didn't have the surgery to motivate me right now. One thing I will be glad about when it is all over with is that I can finally put my attention toward something other than surgery and dieting... what in the world do other people do with their time???


  1. You will so get to your goal this time!!! I can feel it!!! Enjoy your mini break & try not to stress about the damage. chuck in as much incidental walking as you can to combat :0) xoxo

  2. Sorry to hear you've been sick, but at least you have this as a silver lining hey? Good luck with those last few kilos, you can do it!

  3. Gastro is only good for losing weight quickly, but then it comes back on. Glad to hear you are feeling much better.

    All the best for your upcoming surgery. Can't wait to hear all about it so I know what I'm in for myself.


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
