AUSSY FAMILY.... AND IT'S DAY 30 !!!

First off for today... the Aussy Family.
Someone asked me yesterday why I no longer had Tess in the photo with Russ and kids?
Simple.  Tess and Russell have split up.  It looks to be a permanent split. 
And that is all I shall say on the subject.



TODAY is Day 30 !!!

I can stand on the scales... and see how well I have done.  Or not.
If it's not kinda what I HOPE... all is not lost!
I will just aim to do better for the next 30 days!
I didn't re-gain the weight in 30 Days, so I sure in hell won't lose it in 30 Days either!
As long as I do my best, I can be happy with myself.
POSITIVE thinking... POSITIVE attitude...POSITIVE RESULTS.

Now, as it's still rather early in the morning, and I always retain fluid over the course of the previous evening, I shall be stepping on the scales AFTER I've had me piddle pill, so around LUNCHTIME.

I hope I can hang out that long, and YOU too ? ... *smiles*


ABOVE:  Stew saying hello to Dante when he got home from work last night.  So lovely ... he dotes on his grandkids... hmmm, actually he dotes on ALL BABIES!  

We can be at a foodcourt in a mall and he is sitting near a baby... and he just can't help himself.  He talks to anyone's baby!  Once a young Mum got concerned and turned her baby's highchair around so Stew couldn't talk to her baby!!!  lol 

We have no plans as such for the day... probably  do the housework then some sewing.  I've still got those three bags to finish...

ONWARD...

So...  11.30 and I couldn't wait any longer!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE:   ............


I LOST 8 KILOS in my first 30 Days!!!!!

That is 17.6 pounds

To say I am thrilled to bits would be an understatement.  I'm utterly wrapt.

I have to tell you this.  It is AMAZING weighing only 'monthly'... or every 30 days like I am doing!!!

I feel like crying... it is just so good to see such a massive loss in 30 days!  AND... I did not starve, I still ate carbs, I had one day 'off' a week and I still lost 8 kilos!

  7. I had to laugh at you keeping everyone in suspense about the weigh-in. However it turns out your effort has been very positive and will pay off in the long run.

  22. Hi Chris - CONGRATLUATIONS!! I am so pleased for you. With all the things that you have had to deal with to lose that much weight is nothing short of incredible. You must reward yourself with something non- food related! Maybe a massage or facial? Enjoy your success. Love Karen xo

    Well done Chris - you have stuck with it for 30 days, what an achievement!! Amazing how you decided to do it and then just got on and did it. Your tone is so different in your writing compared to a few months ago.

    Keep being strong - you clearly have so much strength within you.

  42. What does Anon mean about Russel? Either? who else is anon referring to?

    I also agree with the comment regarding that your tone has been so much better lately :) Nice

    ReplyDelete
  43. Some other people would have a tone in their writing if they had to endure what Chris has had to deal with,

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hey Chris - would you mind writing the main changes that you have made to lose this weight? I would love to read what you have done! Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  45. What a fantastic result, it was great to hear the other day when youn mentioned clothes fitting better, that was a good sign. I need to take a leaf out of your book and stay away from the scales :) big hugs, a job well done.

    Oh Chris, that's fantastic. I think I'm gonna start calling you Droopy Draws! If you keep shedding pounds like that, you won't be able to keep your draws on!

    I did not mean anything negative when I said "tone". I meant she has sounded more positive lately. It was a compliment. Wrong choice of word no doubt - but the rest of my comment I thought would show that I was not having a dig.

  48. To Anonymous, my comment wasn't toward you at all, you said it in a nice way, I know exactly what you meant,Chris does sound happier.

  50. WTG I'm so proud of you! Isn't it awesome to put the weight in perspective to the kids?? Every time I lift up a huge box of cat litter that says 28 pounds and I struggle to carry it around I remind myself that I lost almost double that. It's no wonder I was so miserable trying to cart that extra weight around!
