A wonderful weekend :)

What a wonderful weekend!

I worked yesterday. When I work on a Saturday, it’s between 9 and 4 so there are none of these horrid ‘gotta get up at 5.30’ days like I do during the week.

The Escalators were slow because it’s a Saturday so, even though I didn’t feel like it, I walked up them. I was going to go up the ones I normally go up a different set to the ones I ended up going up and they were broken :/ I did the right thing and walked up them ignoring the fact that I know there is a lift just to the left of them. By the time I got to work, I was so out of breath! It was good though.

One of the girls from work mentioned how well I am looking. I said to her ‘I’ve lost 45 kilos in the last 6 months’. It was amazing saying it out loud with pride. I can’t wait until it’s 50 and than 60! Come to think of it, when I have reached my first goal (which at this stage is 80), I would have lost 163kg.

When I got home, everyone was chaotic getting things ready for the twins birthday party which was today. I did intend on going for a walk but by the time I got the chance, it was dark!

We had a great day today. We had their birthday at a Miniature Railway in Altona. It is a gorgeous little place. We had a BBQ and the babies had their little friends there. It was wonderful to watch them enjoy themselves :) I had a piece of Watermelon. I was going to have some of the chicken but I didn’t really want to have a public vomit in case it didn’t go down properly.

We also did a pass the parcel and for the first time in I can’t remember when, I knelt down on the ground. I managed to do it for a few minutes. I didn’t struggle as much a what I used to when getting up either. It was a great feeling.

Cath took a few photos of me in them and I am actually really pleased with how I look at the moment. Yes, I have a very long way to go but I have come so far. I’ve lost 27% of what I want to lose and it’s starting to show. Here’s some pics…

Me in the purple top obviously :)

Things are great :)

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and has a wonderful week :)
