Week 8 – WWW

1.5kg down this week!

I’VE DONE IT!!!! My 2nd goal to lose 10kg by 25 July 2012. WOW, I can hardly believe it 😀

Now I guess I need to make ANOTHER new goal!

So here it is: My new 3 month goal is to weigh less than 80kg by the last weigh-in (which I think is 29 August). If I achieve this goal, that would make my total weight loss 14.4kg (31.7lbs). Not bad considering my original goal was to lose 12kg across the 12 weeks!

My lowest known weight as an adult is 76.9kg (and that was right before my 30th birthday). So I will be very happy to get into the 70’s again!!

Planning to go hard for the next 5 weeks!


Week 7 – WWW

1.2kg down this week!! 😀

My BMI is now under 30!

My BMR is dropping – at the start of this it was 1674! Now it’s 1623.

Total weight loss is now 8.7kg!

Looking forward to seeing more great results in the coming weeks. I’m already making some special plans for the Brisbane finale party!!


Week 6 WWW

Hurray!!! I’m no longer OBESE, now I’m just OVERWEIGHT!!!  LOL

1kg down this week. I’m happy with that. (Although I wonder if/when I’ll lose 1.7kg a week again – that would be super!)

Total weight lost is now 7.5kg 😀 and we are at the half-way mark!

There are only 2.5kg to go in the next 2 weeks – to meet my 2nd goal…

It’s at this point of the program that Mish asks us to step our training up a notch. So I’m trying to take that on board and work harder, run longer, lift heavier.

Hoping for a big result next week!


Week 5 WWW

So I did a weigh-in on Wednesday, but it was a small result (-200g), so I checked again on Thursday (1 week since last weigh-in), and it was better! (-600g).

My total weight loss is now 6.5kg, and 6.9% of my body weight!!

AND I forgot to mention earlier, I got an email on Wednesday from Michelle Bridges, congratulating me on my progress!!!! I received it in the car on the way home, and read it out to Mr S. I was so excited I was jumping out of my seat!!! 😀


It is SO true, consistency is key. I’m so determined to continue changing my lifestyle. I’m taking on these new routines for life, and I’m teaching Miss E about healthy living.

My heart jumped with joy when I did my fitness test back in Week 1. Mr S & Miss E came along for support, and Miss E ran around saying ‘Mummy run, Mummy run!’ 😀  And since then when I’m on the treadmill, ‘Mummy run!’ while she runs around the house 🙂  This is a much better picture than Mummy going through the drive-through every couple of days, and the toddler immediately asking for chips from the back seat.

I have to say I am a teeny bit disappointed in the small results this week. I realise the body is not a computer, and sometimes these things just happen. But it is timely for a review of my progress so far, so stay tuned for that. I did have a couple of red flag events that I could have handled even better.

I wonder if I was a bit un-realistic setting my new goal for 10kg lost by 25 July. I have 3.5kg to lose in the next 3 weeks…

This week I’m putting my focus into sticking to my nutrition plan, and nailing my workouts. I’m going to aim for another 1000 calorie burn on Saturday! And I might even do another PIP group workout on Sunday – even though it is my rest day!

Bring on Week 6!


Week 4 WWW

So I decided to do my weigh-in today, and I have lost 800 grams!
Total loss is now 5.9kg.

Not as big a loss as previous weeks, but I expected that. Hoping for a bigger number next week.

I will also take my measurements today – the scales may not show it, but surely I’m getting smaller! And I’m doing my fitness test on Saturday.

AND…. I forgot to mention this earlier in the week, on Monday during Pump I did a few pushups ON MY TOES!!!!!!!!!!! They may not have been low enough, bit still!

Week 3 WWW

WOW. ANOTHER 1.7kg loss this week!!! (That’s 3 weeks in a row!)

So I’ve achieved my 1 month goal – TWO WEEKS EARLY!!!!

(My 1 month goal was to lose 5kg by 4 July).

I can’t believe I’ve actually done my first goal already! 😀

AND…. I’m now in the 80’s!!!!!!

This is AWESOME!!

I just cannot rate this program highly enough. I feel great, I’m not sore, I don’t feel deprived, and the food is delicious!

I’m returning to work next week, after 5 weeks of leave. One of the reasons for my leave was to get a good start on the 12WBT. Before I went on leave I had a tiny voice in my head saying that I could come back to work 5kg lighter…. part of me thought ‘yeah right – wouldn’t that be good’… but I’ve done it!

There is still a long way to go though, so I will just keep doing what I’m doing 🙂

I hope you’re having a super great day!! (I know I am!)
