I have had an extremely rough rough rough year.... no one is following this blog anymore which is fair enough... wasn't really a show stealer..
Was pissing around on FB this morning, as I do most days, terrible terrible addiction. Came across a photo of a friend of the family who left NZ to live in Queensland this time last year. She is a single Mum of one and left here at the same weight I am, give or take. She was not really motivated and life was a bit hard. I have seen that heaps of her recent status updates are about fitness, sport, getting out there and I thought she must have taken a more active pathway. So I emailed her... as the photo I had seen was amazing, the transformation in a year is frankly astounding...
She messaged me back and said... I exercise hard out 6 days a week, I play basketball, netball, touch and volleyball... I started off loosely following WW points but quickly realised bread was my enemy and dairy gave me tummy aches.... I haven't looked back.
She is frankly a completely different person... I'd say she's lost over 35kg in a year...
I have started and failed attempts time and time again at this weight loss game. This year I have lost my marriage, my horses and most of what my life was about. I have moved north and have been accepted in the Bachelor of Nursing next year at the local polytech.
It's time to make a change, not a diet, not a temporary buzz, a change... a whole change of the way I view it all..
Stats will be posted in the morning... join me on my change of direction.
