I didn’t manage to post last week so this is a double weigh in post!
Last week was my 7th week weigh in and I managed 1.3 kilos.
Today was my 8th week on my plan and I lost a further 2.2 kilos !!! I am really happy with this result! I have now lost 15 kilos exactly! And I am now like 31% of the way there!
I am definitely noticing a difference… Just in general I feel a lot happier, my skin is clear and glowing, my eyes are bright, I am more alert, my clothes feel looser and I sleep better.
When I think about all the good things happening, I can’t concentrate on any of the bad! The only bad things are that I can’t just go and eat on a whim, and I do cook every meal from scratch and that can be time consuming, but for the results? Pfft, who cares!
I went for dinner the other night with some friends in the city, and as I wanted to stay true to my goal, I didn’t partake in the dumpling-fest… Oh so hard, but when I get greeted with a 2.2 loss on the scales for the week, I am glad I didn’t indulge! In the end it doesn’t matter that I didn’t eat… It doesn’t hamper their experience and I still have fond memories of the night! Plus I didn’t get hit with a big bill! Major Plus!
I wanted to share with you guys my reward plan… These are ‘number on the scale’ dependable and also some rewards when I hot certain milestones (Like BMI status and 20, 30, 40 kilos lost, yes it's a long ass journey!)… I am not including the actual weight figures, as that is tooooooo scary to post!
♥ REWARDS ♥
At x I will get my brows made over at Benefit in the city. Plus a little 10minute makeover + purchase a little make up set. Gel manicure and pedicure at home. þ
At x I am going to treat myself to an at home day spa. This also includes dipping into my USA goodies and use one of my face masks. I will also have a long soak in the tub with some LUSH products. I will also give myself a pedicure and a manicure (gel)! (I will then try to continue this once every 2 weeks!). þ (this is what I am up to right now).
At x I can dip into my USA goodies. (3 products).

(I seriously cannot wait… I have always wanted this since I lost weight the first time but never got around to it! In New York, I couldn't resist buying it, but felt I didn't deserve to wear it!)
♥ At x I would have lost 40 kilos!
♥ x I will be in the normal BMI category! Aka: IDEAL!
At x I will treat myself to a facial at the fancy place near home. Like a microdermabrasion type thing- something fancy!

Thanks for sticking around while I get my weight issues sorted!
I have been reading a book called ‘The Beck Diet Solution’… Have any of you guys read it? It’s about breaking free of the dieting cycle by using CBT (cognitive Behavioural Therapy). I am loving it and finding myself nodding along and I am putting the things I am learning into practice! If anyone else struggles, I urge you to get a copy of the book! I have a hard copy and also one from Amazon on my iPhone and tablet- using the kindle app.
Speak to y’all soon!
