~Hello 70’s, So Good to Meet you :)~

26.5kgs lost 18 July 2013 – 18 November 2013 Starting weight 106.3kg Current  weight 79.6kg

Monday, 18th November 2013 is a very significant day in my journey and life for many reasons viz:  my only preciously special niece turned 22, I remember her birth so vividly and my heart, mind and soul was with her across the miles as she  preps for examinations tomorrow as well as with my sister, her mom, for missing her only child as only a mom can, especially on such a special day in both their lives; I took a bold step over the weekend to cut my hair after 8 years – a life-altering aesthetic process that has transformed the way I feel and look, beyond my wildest dreams; I completed my 8 weeks of the Sleekgeek Summer Body Challenge 2013; and a reached a massively proud achievement and milestone in my journey to my own utopia, entering a whole new world in terms of my 26.5kg weightloss, entering the sexy 70s! :)

So armed with this life-altering start on what I perceive as being the most significant achievement in my personal struggles with weightloss, that have shackled me to my self-induced insulin-dependence metabolic Diabetes and it’s complications, I am at a stage where I feel that I am taking back my life and exploiting this opportunity to make the lifestyle change to a healthier me, a step closer to my health and weightloss Utopia, making this journey indeed highly desirable.
This has also given me time to reflect on what this means to me and give some or rather much thought to those that have supported me through this journey and also a time to do a “closet clean-up” in terms of those that add no value to firstly my life and secondly my journey….having a chat with a good friend recently confirmed that those that bring negativity to your life need to be cut out.  So those that I have so so stood by over a long period of time but who give me no happiness in relationships or advice or support in general, will be given the furthest back seat in my life.  This I feel is fundamental in clearing headspace for my journey.  Before I embarked on this journey, we took a life-changing step of excluding a very very significant family member from our lives, a decision that has affected our family in so many ways, but for the better.  It was quite liberating and has actually been the one main factor that has cleared the way for me to begin my journey – carried that burden for 18 years too long and it was time for us and them to move on….
So while I have no aspirations to be that bikini babe as my accident scars won’t allow it, I journey on to a path that will hopefully see me loosening the shackles even more, the shackles that have bound and confined me for so long,.and with the inspirational and motivating words of my dearest husband, my sustainer through this journey, you were beautiful then and are still beautiful now….I continue my journey with much renewed enthusiasm….and with the same amount of commitment, dedication and hard work….

Aluta Continua…

I have indeed survived high school and survived life too in the most interesting and thought-provoking ways. Having lost over 50kgs of excess weight in just under a year, I have reclaimed my life and am thoroughly enjoying the journey.
