My motivation... a French Backdrop

Well, finally after hours of perserverance I worked out how to change my template without losing everything...and I added a Eiffel Tower backdrop to remind myself of my goal. 

I said to hubby, if I get to 85kg again, can we go to Paris? He tentatively said "yes" whilst rolling his eyes. So that's my motivation because I am dying to get there again...we last went to Europe in 1994-1995 and I think it must be time to go bring on 85kg!

Why 85kg? Because it's where I got last time back in 2009 and I was quite happy at that weight. Of course, I don't want to stop at 85kg, but it's a good goal for now.

Oops I've stuffed up my blog by trying to change the template....and can't get the old one back sob

Week 1 Weigh-In

My first weigh-in was pretty good. I lost 1.8kg which was less than the day before when I jumped on the scales. I'm pretty happy with that because my weight was just constantly going up and this is an awesome turn-around for me.

I've been back on track for almost 2 weeks.  I even restarted my tracker and have religiously tracked everything I've eaten so far. So far, so good. I'm weighing in on Tuesday and it's been a good unless I blow it tomorrow (which i won't), then all should be fine for Tuesday. sneek peeks are quite positive. I had a clothing crisis yesterday cos we had staff photos which are going to go up on a website. And could I find anything to wear??!!! Sigh! I have a few weeks to go before I HAVE to have my passport photo taken so am hoping a few weeks will make a difference hehe....don't want to be stuck with a photo for the next 5 years that I'll cringe at.

Here's a fairly recent photo to start off the photo gallery with - taken in March 2012.  Hoping to see some changes in a few months. At least by early June when I need to get my passport to fly to NZ.  We've got a skiing trip planned! I need to get fit!

Tonight I'm making leek and potato soup so that'll be's been great weather for soup but maybe the family will get sick of soup...I am varying the soup though :) I've got 11 Pro-points left for the day and 29 weeklies, so I'm doing really well this week. Feeling positive and in control for the first time in months!

A fresh start at last! Week 1 again...all good!

I haven't posted anything here for years, and I did contemplate giving up this blog and starting a new one. But I've decided to post from this blog and remind myself that I can do it, I've done it before!!! So to confess up: (Re-)Starting weight: 115.5kg Now I'm on Day 4, and have stayed within my Pro-points...using a few weekly points each day. So far so good. And I'm back on the boards at WW.
