Just when I was in dire need of sun I awoke yesterday to the most perfect cloudless winters day I could have asked for. I flung open the doors and windows, loaded up the washing line with lots of lovely clean laundry and just…recharged. Bliss.
And this photo was taken of Rastus by our old neighbour before we moved but I only just managed to find it on this fancy laptop with it’s 50 million folders.
Isn’t he gorgeous? Rastus was loving the sun yesterday too. Today was not quite as sunny and I’ve been hit with a nauseous tummy thing but any day without rain is a good day in a Wellington winter.
I did perk up enough to go to my WW meeting this evening. I was dreading a gain due to a Friday/Saturday “I am SO OVER the rain, I just don’t care anymore” pig out. But surprise surprise I lost 1.6kg! I’ve now lost 8.1kg (17.8lb!) and am now 100.6kg. So close to double figures. My fertility appointment is in 23 days so fingers crossed I can even weigh a bit less by then. (I was supposed to weigh double figures by May and I feel guilty now) I am thinking I can hit my referral goal by Christmas at this rate – just in time for the best months of summer. Awesome. This whole weight loss thing is all about having a baby and I never forget it but I am really loving how good I look as the weight comes off. I may still be 100kg but that 8kg loss has made a huge difference. Bye bye jelly belly!! I don’t ever want to see you again!! A summer where I don’t want to hide under inappropriately heavy layers? That’s going to be VERY AWESOME!!
