Weigh in Wednesday take 6!!

Hello everyone!!
Yes its been 6 weeks already since the start of the scrappers 5kg challenge.
I have been plodding along and losing the last of my excess kilos that had accumulated after having 3 gorgeous children. I have been trying really hard to shed those kgs and literally working my butt off!
This week has been no different, except that my family and I traveled back down south for a flying visit and a 80th birthday party over this last weekend. I love my family very much. But by jingies my family can cook and subsequently eat!! Knowing this and knowing that I was down to my last 800grs I seriously doubted that I would reach my goal, but also I thought that I had a good chance of  crossing back into QLD slightly heavier than when I went out! LOL!!
Well I tried really hard to be good and I really was controlled but unfortunately I crossed the boarder back up north 100gr heaver. I was quite happy with that actually!! I think I got off lightly!! (lightly - get it hahaha! I so crack myself up!)
So I have exercised really hard and pushed my self harder than usual and ended up at 55.1kgs as of this morning, giving me a total weigh loss from the start of the of the challenge 4.4kgs and 600grs to go!!!!!!
So People this is the week, I AM going to do it this week! But by the way I felt really good to have all my family say how great I looked! My had work and sacrifice (food wise!!) has paid off! I know that to some of you 4.4kgs is not a great weight loss but I started off at under 60kgs so it is nearly 10% of my body weight!! I feel proud of my achievement so far!!

Here is a typical photo of my family - my grandparents, all their grandchildren and their 4 great grand children, I love this pic coz it is so very real!! hahaha!
Well till next time peeps!
Luv Renee

i Know where you are coming from it is hard work and you do feel proud of what weight you loose. i know i've been there 2 years ago i weighed 82KG YES THAT IS 82KG i lost 24KG yes that is 24KG it is hard and painfull at times but you soon get used to the food that you eat...
I 6 weeks ago stopped smoking and have now put on 6 kg that is 1kg a week and it is killing me... BOOOO HHHHOOOOOO.. but my will power is BACK and i will and am determind to loose that 6 kilos. i know how hard it is too loose so no more weight gain for me... So all i can say is you go girlfriend!!!!
have a great week..
TONI
