Weigh-In: 17-01-2011

Hi there
I joined Sure Slim and am battling the bulge during 2011. My first milestone is to loose 15kg and today the countdown began. So for my first weigh-in I lost:
-3.2 kg and -2.6 kg body fat (another 11.8 kg to go)
Thats good isn't it! I was very pleased with my progress, but at the same time very worried as well.
You see the reason I am worried is that I AM ALWAYS GOOD AT STARTING, but not so good at ENDURING. That makes me sad because this is the year that I MUST overcome. I have tried so many times before and I have to strengthen my resolve. So I'm checking out some blogs and trying to find others who are battling the same thing, and it really helps.
So wish me luck on my JOURNEY (I see a possible mini scrapbook coming) documenting the ups and downs of what I've taken on. Next week I'll be in Jhb for a conference and it will be my first test of being away from home and staying on my programme. I'll see how that goes. I'm packing dried fruit, almonds, fruit so that I do not fall into temptation because confereces are the worst, especially when they come out with these lovely treats over tea breaks! I will be strong!
Untill my next weigh-in its going to be high protein, lots of fresh fruit and veg and no carbs.
Again, whish me LUCK!
Ps: My reward to myself is to buy a big Scrapbook items for myself when I reach my first milestone. I already have a Cricut, Cuttlebug, Gypsy and lots of Cricut cartridges. So does anyone have any suggestions as to what my scrapbook reward should be? Let me know what you think.


  1. Well done Natalie! Good luck with the 11.8kgs to go!
    I’m still building at my scrapbook tools and machines; I have the cuttlebug but have been thinking about the cricut a lot! Would you mind if I ask you a few questions about your machine?
    Have a good day

  2. Wonderful job, darling! Wishing you much luck (but I know you can do it!) can't wait to see an album on your journey.
