Friday Weigh In- 5 October

Highest Weight: 129.7 kilos (285.3 lbs)
New Start Weight: 87.5 kilos (192.5 lbs)
Goal Weight: 72.5 kilos (159.5 lbs)

Last Week: 76.2 kilos (167.6 lbs)
Today: 75.2 kilos (165.4 lbs)
Loss: 1 kilo (2.2 lbs)
Total: 12.3 kilos (27 lbs)

It's not often that I lose a full kilo in just one week, so I am really pleased with my weigh in today. I managed to (mostly) keep myself in check over the weekend and it made all the difference on the scales. I did have a little run in with some caramel peanut brittle ice cream on Saturday night but I can never resist a new ice cream flavour when I see it!

I am really close to being 75 kilos (165 lbs) now (just 0.2 away) which is a significant milestone for me. It was kind of always my 'realistic' goal weight and anything lower than 75 will be a bonus for me. That being said, my goal weight for my body lift surgery on 22nd November is 72.5 kilos (159.5 lbs). I am not sure if I will make it to that goal but I will be ecstatic with anything between 72.5 - 75 kilos.

It is such a strange feeling to (almost) meet what seemed like an elusive goal weight. I always thought I would be feeling more confident and ready to show myself off in new flattering clothes. Instead I am finding a strange comfort in my baggy old threadbare dresses that I really hate. I guess I feel like I will attract less attention if I keep myself hidden. I don't understand it because that really isn't me. Well I do hate attracting attention, but I love getting glammed up and trying to look my best.

Normally my favourite thing about losing weight is 'shopping' in my closet for clothes that I have bought and finally shrunk into. For some reason I have steered clear of all my goal clothes (except this dress) even though about half of them should be close to fitting me at this weight. The last few weeks I have promised myself that I would delve into the skinny section of my wardrobe but I haven't been able to bring myself to do it. God only knows what I am afraid of...

Anyway, enough of this carry on. I will get into my wardrobe sometime over the next week and try on my skinny clothes and I am sure I will have a blast doing it. I have way too many pretty dresses that deserve to see the light of day to keep being such a scardy cat!


  1. I am so excited for you! I have 30 lbs left to go and am so inspired by your progress! Keep it up.

  2. Yay! A kilo again! You are a little legend chicken. I know how you feel. I thought a size 14/80kgs would be miraculously skinny, but when I look down I don't see the miracle. Just oodles of fatness still! I hope it comes. Some day.

  3. Excellent work!!!!

    Maybe you're subconsciously holding off til after the surgery? :0)


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
