Weigh in tonight

Well... what a day today.

Left home at 7.30am as we had to take the car in!! OMG I didn't know it but it was not going to happen that easy.

I had to take Quinn to creche
Then take car to garage to be fixed
Then take Hubby to work
Then son to school
and Finallllyyyyy me to my gym appointment with our trainer.

OMG OMG I got to the gym at 9.15 and I had the appointment for 9.00 am... So my day started off badly.

The gym workout with Kris was good today our trainer Liz showed us some ways of using the machines that were making the right muscles work and it was fantastic apart from the fact that she had another appointment so I ended up with only 15 minutes with her grrrr but that was my fault too.

The afternoon was just as busy....

Found out the car cost us $480 to get fixed... so in 4 months this car has cost us $998 GRRRRR. Just before our holiday is just killing me!! We are like tight with money and it just couldn't come at the worst time....

So I went for my weigh in tonight!!! Wanna know how much??? I lost or gained?

I lost 1.9 kilos OMG

I started as a weigher tonight and was learning the ropes. I am not sure if I want to stick to this or not... seems like I am losing the time at the meeting instead of learning things... I guess I have to weigh up whether I want to do that or not...

My boss and another lady (whose kids are in the creche) started at Weight Watchers tonight and told the leaders that I inspired them... it felt weird that is for sure.

So now I have lost 21.8 kilos... OMG I just can't believe how far I have come... I now believe I can do this... it has taken a while and I have got it in my head that I can get to the 100 kilos.. I haven't yet wrapped into the fact that I can get below that but I am going to give it a damn good try.

Good night everyone
I am a bit exhausted now.

Wow!! Fantastic loss!!! Well done :-)

My first couple of times being the Weigher were a bit hectic because I was learning and had to concentrate the whole time, so I felt like I was missing out on the meeting. Like you, I thought about giving up. But it didn't take long to find my feet, and I really started to enjoy it. In the end it was the best thing I could have done, because I got to know the leader and the other girls at the meeting so much better, and I was actually MORE involved in the meeting, even though I was still busy doing all my official bits & pieces. Stick with it for a few more weeks and see how you go!

Congrats again on your great loss this week!

Bugger about the car but FANTASTIC about your loss this week and the fact that you have now lost OVER 20kgs. That is brilliant.

Wowsers, great lose! Of course you can do this. Isn't it great when you get that feeling, that it is all possible :)

Bummer about the car, I'm sure they know the worse possible time to break down, the buggers.

Sue said...

Wow, what a way to break the 20kg mark!

Jodie said...

What a fantastic loss!! You must feel very proud of yourself!! I understand what you are saying about the weigher missing out on the vital information we obtain from our meetings. Is is really worth the money earnt if it will hinder your weight loss efforts. Give it a couple of weeks and if your weight loss starts to become effected then give it away. BTW I love the new profile photo. Much Much better!! XX

Congrats on the absolutely fantastic loss!
Bad news about the car costing so much. Wouldn't we be rich if we didn't have to have a car.

Sorry to hear about the car troubles - it seems like there is always something that is taking money that we have put aside for something else, doesn't it ?
Keep it up - you are doing such a fantastic job !!!!
