I've finally found my 'zone'!


I'm in the zone. That zone where you're just 'doing it' and not 'thinking about it'. Think driving your car... ever freak yourself out wondering 'how did I get five blocks away all of a sudden'? Yep, that's the zone.

Well, I've never been here for weight loss before. Never.

It's the good life here. Rather than boring myself senseless by filling my mind with a constant stream of what I'm eating, what I'm not eating, what I might be eating, what I miss eating... eating, eating, eating... I'm just doing it. In the past I've gotten so BORED with dieting that I immediately turn to food (because I'm a Boredom Eater, of course). Haven't done that this time, not even once.

There is a 'permanent' feeling to what I'm doing. I think I was just ready. I think my reasons are good. I think it's just my time.

SEVEN kilos down now. I'm doing it.

Oh, and we're the same age. I just turned 39 three weeks ago. What a great goal for your fortieth. xx

I totally "get" what you're saying here. I think we're in the same place (and coincidentally have lost the same amount of weight) go girl!

7 kg is amazing! Well done! What's your next mini goal...10 kg? I always find it helps to aim for the mini goals along the way to keep the momentum going. Go girl!

You're giving me hope! I'm still in the "looking in the rear view mirror considering pulling a u-turn" zone, feeling miserable and deprived (as I'm a food as a reward eater of course).
