lost 3 kilos in 8 days:D

Saturday, January 08, 2011

I am happy I can not believe I have lost 3 kilo's already, sorry not sure what that is in pounds... as ,us Australians use Kilo's. I weighed myself on the 21st and I was 70 and I am sure it would have gone up in the last few weeks as I had decided that at the end of December I was going to quit with junk food. I went a little bit nuts with the last week or so with eating whatever, so I am sure it went up after my visit to the hospital on the 21st of Dec 2010. I go around every 6 months for check ups on how VSD ( ventricular septal defect). I get weighed twice there, because I see two different doctors and the first doctor that weighed me said I was 60 and then when I got weighed again by another scales which where digital it said 70 kilo's. I went to a relatives house tonight and they had a pair of scales there so I weighed myself and it had said 67 kilo's. So I am assuming the second time I got weighed at the hospital was correct as my nan's scales where non digital ones as well. So it is a bit stange why the other reading I got was 60 I had weighed myself without shoes. I had to be honest with myself and tell myself that 70 is probably the correct one. I was not planning to weigh myself until at least 6 months or so or not even at all if I could help it as I rather just go by how my cloths fit me and what other friends/ family saw.
Anyway It seems that I got a proper reading and confirmation that it was 70 k at the Hospital and not 60 k. I am a bit shocked that I have lost 3 k in 8 days ,I thought it was that the the scales are wrong again
. I thought it is a mistake, it is too good to be true. I got to accept that I am going to lose weight. That I can and will succeed and can loose a few kilo's in a week. I got to accept good things can happen to me too. Do not think I am good at telling myself that. I will get better at it though. It is all about baby steps, one day at a time:) It won't happen over night but it will happen.
I am feeling so happy but then at he same time I don't want to get hopes up to high so don't want to be too over joyed. sometimes I do new things and do not stick to them.
It has motivated me to keep going, that I am doing something right by what plan I am on. It must be the right one for me. Today I was faced with temptation saying no to things like burger king/hungry jacks( what we call burger king in Australia). My relatives I saw today offered me stuff and I rejected their offer, I told them why I was saying No and they where really impressed and seemed proud of me for doing that. So I think I am also happy because I got support where as other times I would have just given into peer pressure and just been laughed at like oh yeah ok how long is this going to last and I'll believe it when I see it, type of reaction. I think I am going to get tested next week. For two nights I will be staying with Relatives, the house at the moment has 9 people in it, 5 of them from the house are relatives I have not seen for 4 years and are from interstate staying at nan's for a few weeks, They love their chocolate, so I guess I will probably start feeling the pressure in those two days. I was feeling it a bit today and told myself yeah I could just have a bite or a sip of soft drink/ soda but I thought of those 3 kilo's that I have lost, It is giving me strength when I get temped :) So I think in some ways when those two nights come, I should be alright. I have to thank God, I have been praying that he keeps me strong and helps me and I am sure he has been helping me too . Usually I feel my prayers are ignored , sort of seeing them being answered. I am finding some scriptures help me stay focused too and it has been a while since I looked the bible or turned to God for guidance
. All this week I have studied Phillippians 4:13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength. When using scriptures like this in prayer I have said things like... Lord please provide me with strength to be able to walk 30 mins , With your help I can do it. I really don't feel like doing it today, I know I got to do it but I feel weak. I am lacking energy, I feel lazy but please give me strength. Thing is even after I have said this, I still have not felt like doing it that is when you have to force yourself to go , it has been a battle but In the end I did get up and go. I have a few more scriptures to add and how they have helped me this week but I have to stop writting it is 1:26am and I shall continue this soon. I am going to try and sleep. I am feeling good so that might help with sleeping.
