Im back

I do apologise for the non posting for 2 weeks but I finally have new scales and a break from thinking about my weight did me good as I still lost weight, but im back on track and ready for another week. Im down to 88.6 kg's on my new scales they weight heavier than the old ones but they will do.... but wow scales are so expensive and all I wanted was kg weight ones not the fat water ones and the prices ranged from $39.00 to $199.00 and that was at big W....

I am shocked to say I walked from the showgrounds in Adelaide to Adelaide city which took me 20 mins or so this week and its not a short distance it was a big walk and I didnt need to stop once.... or my ventolin. I also went to the Adelaide Markets and walked around looking at the different stalls and picking up bargains.

Oh well have a good week all :)

Wow 2kg loss back on track

Well I found out I had not lost 2kgs my son broke my scales and there not showing the correct weight.... so sorry folks... what a left down ! I now have to wait until I can get some new scales until I weigh my self again oh well maybe a break from weighing my self is a good idea.... atm its showing on the scales that I weigh 149kgs which is not correct and then it flashes and says 70kgs and well who knows.... I had looked at some weight watchs scales but I heard there not the best so Ill keep looking. Sorry all :)

Well I am on track and I lost 2kg's this week wow I havent done much different just havent been feeling the best. I have had a interesting week this week.... I have been looking at future plans with the weight loss and my friend zowie just happened to come over and she is having a tummy tuck done so I got to see all the paper work..... I have cancelled my appointment with Dr Giffan and I have booked in to see Margaret Anderson who comes to Christies Beach every 2 weeks which is much closer and she does it under the public system... so on the 3rd of Sept at 10 am I will find out all the ins and outs and find out how long I have to wait. Zowie has been told she will be done within 2 months so I may have it done this year, It would be very exciting if I could.

So with the 2kg loss I have 12.8kgs until I reach my goal weight of 75kgs and I have 13 weeks until the 28th of October so I am well on track at loosing that much weight by my birthday or be near to it.

I am also fitting into size 12's yes wow I have always looked at beautiful tiny clothing but never thought I would ever fit into it so I am very happy that now I can fit into it.

So the plan for the future of my weight loss is to : relook at my current diet and add more fruit and veg, keep to 1000 cal maybe a small ammount more, get back on track I have been having a few more chocolates than I need, make sure iced coffee is banned from the house ( Its one my problems).... and to keep the weight off as well as walking more faster and further.... and to give up smoking ! thats a big one I really need to.

well all have a nice week <3>

Going through the public system for a tummy tuck

Well another photo and you can really see the difference in my face.... I only lost 400g this week but its still a loss and for 14 weeks now I have lost weight not put weight on so I am very pleased with how things have been going.

As you can see from the facial shot I have started to show some excess skin under my chin its one of my main problems I have allot of skin and I have been thinking about what to do about it.... I was going to go private for a tummy tuck but the cost is more than we can affored so this week I am going to see about getting a referral to getting it done at flinders medical centre. My tummy , back and chest area is the worst at the moment and though im so happy that I have lost 65.2kgs which is a massive ammount of weight I have to feel happy with my body also...... I have also started to get skin rashes that bleed and smell and my back really is starting to get sore.

But I am not going to make a firm decision until I meet with my local doctor and see if things can be done. So yes another loss :)
