The Need to Lose Weight

I work with all males, and I live with all males, so sometimes I crave the company of females so that I can talk about and do girl things. This morning, being the last weekday of my holidays, I decided to meet up with my mum and her best friend, Carol. Believe me, they are both “young” and “cool”.

We did the usual things that girls do, ie chat, drink coffee, laugh and shop. This last thing is unusual for me, because I’m not a “girly girl” and have never been crazy on clothes shopping. However, when in Rome…well, you know what I’m saying. Mum and Carol are fun to be around, they make me laugh, but if something looks dreadful on me they are not shy in saying so. However, I didn’t need them to tell me that I’m starting to look…heavy.

I stared at myself in the mirror, wearing the latest fashion, and didn’t like what I saw – all those bulges, most have appeared since the hysterectomy two years ago. It was depressing, and it’s time I did something about it as the weight is slowly increasing with each and every month that passes. I only need to lose about 12kg, which isn’t much, but I’ve decided to join the Tony Ferguson Weightloss Program. 😀

Carol has been (and still is) on this diet and she has lost around 25kg. She looks great, and she tells me she feels even better because she likes herself now. This is my main motivation for joining the program, I want to like myself too and be comfortable with the clothes I wear.

A believer in making personal goals public, in order to see them through, I have decided to share my journey with you. And…in order to do that, I have to make public some numbers. Here goes:

My current weight: 71.7kg
My goal: 60kg

A week’s supply of shakes have been purchased, and I plan to start the diet tomorrow morning. As I never eat between meals anyway, I’ll probably find eating the fruit difficult. However, the biggest challenge will be drinking the two litres of water – and not drinking the usual number of cups of tea – per day. Determination and will power will be the key.

Wish me luck.
