Weighty Matters


When I got on my bathroom scales this morning and thought they were broken. In fact I hopped on them three times before I was convinced that the numbers might be right. Although I did ask Brodie to try them too just to make sure my scales were in fact working properly. The reason is according to my scales I have lost another 2 kilograms (4.4lbs) which takes my total weight loss up to 22 kilos (48.5 lbs) I'm flabbergasted! Yep that's the best word to describe how I am feeling this morning.

Since I hopped on the scales I thought I would go all out and grab the tape measure too. Just to see if my waistline has shrunk as well. This has really knocked me for six. I have lost 7cm (2.75 inches) around my waist. It explains why my pants are feeling loose, my blouses look like there's more room in them and my dresses fit better.

Who would have thought being diagnosed with Diabetes and having to cut sugar from your diet would lead to such a positive change? I know I didn't. I had dieted on and off for years. I was the type of person whose weight is like a roller-coaster ride flowing up and down. It feels funny to say this but I am glad I was diagnosed. It was the push I needed to help me focus on a healthier me.
