 I don't know if anyone's really noticed... but slowly and surely I've been losing weight.

And YES, I've eaten some pies!  Just not many.

ABOVE: The difference between these two photos is : 12 kilos.

It's not a huge amount, but it's progress.

My goal for the rest of this year is to lose another 5-8 kilos.

Totally doable, I just have to keep the focus on my health, and why I want to drop a few more kgs.  Of course, I've 'been there, done that' a gazillion times before.

I think maybe the difference now is that I am much more concerned about my health than ever before.

Before losing weight was more about a 'number', and other people's perception of me.

Now I don't give a shit about what other people think.  I am doing it for ME.  

I want to feel good about myself again.  And I will.

ABOVE:  And the saga of the $20 continues.  I don't know how many times that $20 has gone between Lacy and myself... but she's got it again.  I have way less options to 'give it back' to her, but with masking tape, I manage.  
Yesterday that $20 got taped behind her number plate.  heee heee.

ABOVE:  Just hangin' around home today.

10.35 am:  And omg, what a stunning day it is outside!

I've already been out to the supermarket, we needed a few supplies for lunch/dinner.

ABOVE:  Coco can't stay awake. So damn cute.

ABOVE:  Feeding the masses... chippie sandwiches.  So yum on a cold day.

In anticipation of Lacy hiding 'the $20' at my home over the weekend, I did a sneaky move this morning.
I said I was going to the supermarket, and instead I went out to her farm.

ABOVE:  And I left one of my rocks on the deck.  Under it was $20 firmly taped in place with duct tape.  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜†

ABOVE: After saying 'Hi' to the piggies, I quickly ducked into the supermarket to validate my 'cover story', then went home.  

It has been another really good day here.  We've just had dinner, sausages and veges, and now it's time to relax till bedtime.
Catch you tomorrow.


  1. You can definitely see the difference in your face. Well done slow and steady wins the race. Have a super Sunday xπŸ‘

  2. 12 Kilos! That is huge! Do not underestimate yourself. Good Job. I rejoined Weight Watchers about 1.5 months ago. I have lost 11 pounds, or 5 Kilos. You have lost 26 pounds! That is a big accomplishment and not easy! Cute picture in the swing!

  3. Fantastic news about your health... I say that rather than 'weight loss' because as you say it really is about health. Obviously losing weight is a bonus :)

  4. Well done Chris. I am all for losing weight for your health, good health is everything, shit health equals shit life

  5. What a massive difference,well done.
    We currently have sun and blue sky but I’m sure that won’t last long.

  6. Can see the weight loss, well done😊😊. Its a lifestyle not a diet. I’m down 8 kilos since beginning of the year which is great for my upcoming operation.

  7. Looking great Chris, congratulations. What you are doing is working very well for you. You’ve got this πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
