[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
Yesterday at work, I had the calculator out (it was a slow day, okay) and realised I have a few milestones coming up:
85 kilos = 25 kilos lost
83.2 kilos = bmi below 30 (ie. no longer obese - I will call this day NO Day and find a suitable way to celebrate)
82.6 kilos = 25% of my start weight gone!
Lots of celebrations and non-food rewards coming up for me, I think. I love to celebrate things. That's what life's about.
Shopping details: Just to answer a few questions, the bouncy shoes I bought are New Balance. There's no name on the box but they have 766 on them.
And at Jeans West yesterday, I got a little shrug cardigan in a new crochet-style blue. Great for wearing over singlet tops for summer. I also got this very cute t-shirt. They are having this promotion for Pink Ribbon day and the t-shirt was part of that (the Wayne Cooper one). I actually went in there because I saw a cute baby doll dress on their web site but when I tried that on, I looked preggers!
My body does weird things sometimes. Like once a month, I get all cranky and irritable and crave chocolate. Not so weird, you might be thinking, except it happens about a week AFTER my period! I don't understand.
I'm going to the hairdressers this morning. Not sure what colour I want to go yet - I've been having a red vs blonde debate with myself. I'd prefer red but I do want to be blonde just once more between now and death.
My friend, Sugar Lips, and I had a drink on Fitzroy Street last night and watched the circus of human life pass us by. Every so often, I'd look at a chick and ask Sugar Lips if she was bigger than me. I think dudes hate that stuff. Hate it. So, he'd say of course she was. But I wasn't looking for a compliment or an ego boost, I really have no idea of the size of me and am trying to work these things out.
I've been loving my bircher museli for breakfast (recipe at Absolute Flabulous) - I run out this morning and the oats I used have every day now seem so inferior. Must make another batch today, as well as cleaning up this mess. I wanted to go for a walk outside but I don't think the weather is going to be any good. Damn rain.
Hi Kathryn! Congratulations on your excellent loss yesterday, and on treating yourself to some well deserved shopping! I'm going to check out the crochet cardie...
