Happy New Year…

Ok so I’m borderline (definitely) a little too late for a Happy New Year post but let’s roll with it.

I went to the gym on December 28th… I’d put on a 1lb over Christmas. Wonderful. Surprising but wonderful. I went to the gym on January 5th… 6 more lbs. Not so great. But as I mentioned before Christmas, life would be very boring if you didn’t let yourself indulge every now and again (plus cheese taste far too good to avoid).

I had a few occasions in January (I’m not one of those Dry January/let’s stay in and snuggle kind of gals)… we drank, we ate, but we danced too… I didn’t gain or lose any more lbs. The gym warned them off. But I was a little nervous about my upcoming trip to Dubai. I want to look glamourous… not bloaty. So I decided to do the Clean 9 again. Not only is it a great cleanse, with the added bonus of weight loss, but it really gives you a glow.

I’ll do another post when I have a little more time about my second experience of the Clean 9. But in summary I started 61 pounds down and finished 73 pounds down. I have more energy, my skin is glowing and having previewed a new shirt dress to the office yesterday my confidence has been boosted.

Did you know 73 pounds is the same as 44 bottles of wine? Well now you do… (I use ilostwhat.com for all comparisons – fabulous little site).

60 Pounds Down.

I have a jaw people…. this is not a false alarm, who knew under those cushioned layers of flab I had an actual jaw. Ok so when I laugh… like proper belly laugh (which I do a lot because I’m hilarious) my jaw goes into hiding once more, but I know it’s there now at least…

I’m feeling good, like real good. People say nice things to me and I feel warm inside, I think it’s known as pride? 60 pounds off… that’s like over 4st. Crazy.

So tonight I have a PT session and we’re going to do this thing whereby I pick up an extra 27kg of weight, and remind myself just how draining it was carrying that around daily. That’s when it really hits home for me. I always think when you lose weight that you don’t notice it in yourself as much, well not until you start putting old photos together and see the difference, so it’s nice in a way to be able to feel the difference.

The only way is down….
