Following my post of just a little nudge, I had to give myself a little nudge too. I weighed in a whooping 112kg from 98kg just a few weeks ago!
“What?” I shriek in alarm.
I gasp and swallow the lump in my throat.
I should have known from the extra waddle of my rump and the jiggle of loose parts coupled with the aches and pains here and there. These are my usual tale-tale signs even though my height tends to hide this ample splendor 🙂
I have fallen off my wagon and landed face down. But no matter, time to get back on the grind.
Well the key word here is getting fit and revamping my nutrition. I am not on the verge of becoming twiggy, nor am I ready for any hocus-pocus, mumbo-jumbo weight loss magic. That is hardly sustainable and becomes dated pretty fast.
I just want to eat reasonable portions of healthy meals and exercise regularly.
At the start of the year, I jumped in with a lot of gusto and actually lost a good chunk. In retrospect, I think I got tired of counting calories and scaling every food that went into my mouth, coupling that with recent hectic changes made in my life, I comfort ate and threw away the scale. Not so sure that was a good thing 😦
Not to bore you with all the nitty-gritty details, I choose to expose myself by blogging my 30 day keep fit challenge, so that you can have the opportunity to tar and feather me when I fail. It also makes me feel more responsible, knowing that I have your support.
I shall log in once a week and give you a synopsis of how I fared and if I made the scale tilt a bit. I shall set incremental and plausible goals, so that it does not become too cumbersome.
I also belong to a group of very awesome, fit and dynamic ladies from different walks of life who are breaking the boundaries and achieving phenomenal things on this level. They can be found on Facebook at, Women Encouraging Women To Live Healthy.
It is a closed group for women and would require an invite, so just in case you are interested, you can give me a nudge.
They are a very fantastic support group of encouraging women (I am sure that am I one of the laziest of the whole lot) :), however, I hope that is about to change.
