Today on the 10th day of the 10th month of 2010 I would like to announce to you that I have achieved my 10kgs weight loss goal!

It has taken 6 months of healthy eating and 71 hours and 40 minutes of exercise but I have finally shed the 10kgs that I put on since starting on a Beta-Blocker to prevent my migraines last year.

My next check-up with the GP is in 3 weeks time and I cannot wait to stand on the scales in his office and show him that I have followed his advice and am now proudly well within the healthy weight range for my height.

Thank-you to everyone who has helped and encouraged me over the last 6 months. To Byron who ate lettuce with me for tea. To the kids who scooted and cycled next to me on our long weekend walks. To my Mum and sister who acted like personal trainers on each long distance phone-call home and to my work colleagues who joined me on my fitness quest and are also weighing in lighter as each week goes by.

And a word of warning to those living in New South Wales Australia. Watch out. I plan on doing number 15 on my Summer Wish-list on a beach near you this coming summer...!

  1. Well done you! I need to lose a good bit myself but have totally lacked the discipline. 10 kg is about what I need to lose too. Thanks for the inspiration and congratulations on your accomplishment.

  2. Great job! I'm very happy for you and you must be feeling so good! I have lost 10 pounds so far and am going to Weight Watchers meetings every week with a dear friend of mine. My husband is also losing weight with us :)

    With hope,

  3. I must congratulate you on this milestone! You worked hard for it! Enjoy!

  4. Congratulations gina , you should be very proud of yourself. My husband needs to lose weight is a struggle to get him motivated, and with him travelling for work, he does not have me around to help him.
