Well the good news is that I am writing this from Virgin Active, after a gorgeous swim, jacuzzi, steam room AND sauna.
But the bad news is that I used the scales in the ladies changing rooms. At what I THOUGHT was my heaviest, a few years ago, I was 80 kilos, but I weighed myself tonight and I am .... drum roll...... 88 kilos.
So drastic action is needed. (I have added the image above on Wednesday 22nd October - had to because when I told my husband that I am 88 kilos, he laughed, and I said "what is so funny", to which he said "two fat ladies: 88". [This aint bingo darling]. To which I replied "well it is only ONE fat lady!". Anyway, when I "Googled" two fat ladies, this was the first image to come up - hee hee).
I am now sitting in Virgin Active's cafe having my last ever latte - I have said that so many times before. AND tomorrow serious action will commence, which will include having Vita Mix soups for lunch and no pastries on the way to work.
I look forward to reporting back to announce that I have already lost a couple of kilos (if I can find a place to hide them, hee hee hee).
Watch this space. I traditionally put on weight at Xmas, but quite frankly there is no room for that at the moment. So maybe I finally start going to Virgin Active classes, and burn some fat rather than simply floating up and down the pool.
Up until now my visits to the gym have been stress relief, but they now need to be serious fat burning sessions :-)
Okay, I just Googled Vita Mix and weight loss (have owned my Vita Mix for over a year by the way) and this fab website came up. I am making this soup tomorrow.
Hi there, If you have found me, you, like me, probably want to lose weight in 2009. It is not always a straight forward process and life gives us our ups and downs, and also we sometimes see the weight go up and down, but together, blogging and motivating each other, we can do it. I have this blog to be part of a community, and to provide myself with much needed accountability. Also provides an outlet for the thoughts and ramblings inside. Thanks for coming, Liska x
