Enough with all of that - the figure I care about it the one I wrote down yesterday (drum roll please...)
I'm currently 186.6kg :) this means that I have lost 57kg since I started my journey. And that's pretty amazing.
I'm right in the middle of the lowest I got to back in September 2011 and the magic number of 200kg. I'm in an amazing place. I was on top of the world when I heard my scales say that number and it's certainly motivated me. I am just pleased I'm still under 200kg.
I had to read back through my blog to get the last few weights and I can see where things went wrong. But I'm determined to give it another shot. I took my measurements as well (I'll write these up here should you wish to read them - http://movingforwardlookingforward.blogspot.com.au/p/measurements.html). I take my measurements every month so I'll update them again mid July.
Today I went down to the Chemist and purchased some OptiSlim. As I said yesterday, I am going to do shakes for a few weeks to get some of my weight off so I can exercise without being sore. I am going to stop them when I've lost 10 or 15 kilograms and then I will start eating as I normally would. I used to use the OptiFast but the difference in price is huge! I also prefer the variety in the OptiSlim range. I got the premium ones as they sounded better than the normal ones. I am going to have the shakes to replace my breakfast and lunch. For dinner, I'll have a shake and some vegetables but the nights that I feel like something a little extra, I'll have whatever I've cooked the rest of the family for dinner that night. I'm not going to go to hard. I want it to be sustainable.
I'm glad I knew what I was looking for today. There were shakes and diet products as far as the eye could see!
