Updated weights and measurments... gulp!

I weighed myself yesterday morning.  I confessed to a few people that I thought I would be close (it not slightly over) 200kg.  I am pleased to say that I wasn't. 

I thought that I would post my weight history along with my current weight.  This makes me feel pretty good about where I'm at today :)

04.8.2010 - 243kg (535 lb and 11.57 oz)
02.12.2010 - 218kg (480 lb and 9.72 oz)
17.3.2011 - 197.4kg (434 lb and 4.97 oz)
28.4.2011 - 193.4kg (425 lb and 7.87 oz)
09.06.2011 - 186.3kg (410 lb and 11.53 oz)
20.07.2011 - 176.8kg (289 lb and 8 oz)
25.08.2011 - 171.2kg (around 379 pounds)
23.09.2011 - 165.9kg (around 365 pounds)
16.11.2011 - 176.4kg (around 389 pounds)
30.11.2011 - 172.1kg (around 379 pounds)

2.8.2012 - 199.6kg (around 440 pounds)
25.10.2012 - 199.9kg (around 440 pounds)
Sometime in February 2013 - 209kg (around 460 pounds)
6.2.2013 - 204kg (around 449 pounds)
11.4.2013 - 211kg (around 465 pounds)
27.9.2013 - 196.4kg (around 433 pounds)

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 -  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!

Tomorrow I will take my body shots and I shall post them up.  I can't remember how often I used to take these (I think it was monthly).  I'll also get to the gym at some stage as well.  My weekends are flat out but this is where making time comes in. 

I'd like to thank everyone for their messages of support since I restarted my blog.  It's been lovely to have such positive feedback.  I've started  a Facebook page as well to compliment this blog.  It's feel free to check it out.

Enjoy your weekend :)
