I know I'm not out of the woods yet. My current 138.9kg weight is still a lot higher than I would like. But I really do think that the next ten weeks will bring good results - and I'm already starting to visualise how my new body shape might look.
Measurements were taken again today, and the fat is falling off all over. It's most noticable in my hip and butt area though, where I've lost a significant amount. Certainly my clothes are fitting better than for a long, long time - and if this keeps going, I'll soon be looking for a new wardrobe.
Training wise I'm still spending roughly an hour a day in the gym. This is hard work - but worthwhile. I've got a great personal trainer at Club Physical Xpress Auckland, Sugar, who makes the training fun and full of variety. I'm so impressed with Sugar that I'm placing her photo on this blog!
Today I was restacking the dumbbell rack from a pile of 20 weights on the floor... one at a time. In between the stacking I had to run outside the gym and go up and down stairs. It was a full cardio workout, with the benefit of some strengthening too due to the weights. There's a photo below showing me when I finished the exercise.
I'm going to keep on progressing, so keep reading the blog for updates. And please feel free to donate to Diabetes New Zealand here.
