I've been a bit inactive lately, been busy, but not doing the right things. I havent been following a diet of any kind, or exercising at all, and I'm starting to feel and see it.
After another fill a few weeks ago, my hubby was on holidays, which is when my diet and exercise routine tends to fail a little. We went to a friend's wedding, where I got sick (gastro?) halfway through the night, could barely eat anything and had to come home early. I lost about 2kg being sick that weekend, and although I'm avoiding the scales like the plague, I'm 99% sure ive put that back on. We're moving into our new house this week (just bought our first home), and we've changed our wedding reception venue with 6 months until the big day. Amongst this we've also thrown our son a birthday party and been to a baby shower. He's gone back to work but I havent regained my motivation. Yet..
Needless to say, I've had a lot on my mind the last couple of weeks and really been neglecting my weight loss journey. I'm starting to feel fat and gross again, and not liking what I see in the mirror, even though I have probably only gained a kilo or two, IF THAT. I think its in my head more than anything. I know that when I'm not exercising, I really lose the motivation to eat healthy and drink water, and I'm hoping that the warming weather will assist me.
My baby, my son, he turns 2 tomorrow and I know how far I've come since this time last year. 1st October will be the anniversary is the day that I became really serious about improving my health. November 15th is the anniversary of when i received my lap band.
If I can motivate myself enough to get in the right mind-set, I would really love to lose another 5kg before my 1 year anniversary. I have gone from 108kg, to about 76kg (assuming i have put on a kilo or so). If I could just done to 70kg, or even 69kg (my surgeon's goal), I know I could feel like my banding surgery has been a success. I know it has, dont get me wrong, but I would be ecstatic.
Just have to get through another week of stress (moving) and then I need to climb back on the horse!
P.S. Have attached one of the family photos we had taken a few weeks ago.
