Hello Week 8 ...

It's been 2 weeks since I've blogged.. and in those 2 weeks I've thought of a million things to blog about and never got the chance. Work has been busy, SD is busy too - but most of my spare time is spent walking and jogging and planning meals, and being fabulous!:)

So many things have changed in 8 weeks... the most exciting is the 17kg that I've donated to the world :) 

So here's a few things I've wanted to blog (in no particular order)

I've decided i want to ice-skate again :)
I want to run the stairs up the Terrigal Skillion and just take in the view
I want to be able to buy clothes at coles (weird want i know but the clothes are cute and cheap!)
I want to loose 3 more kg to get to 20 kg total next weigh in.
I want new funky Trainers
I want to inspire and encourage others to realise their healthy lifestyle dreams
I want SD to succeed, and be stand alone.
I want to see my Nieces and Nephews
I want to be the best i can be.
I want to wear clothes that are true to my personality and who i really am

Well i may have to wait to achieve a few of these... but a few i have this week.

New trainers -Tick
Inspired people -Tick

So i had a funny yet boring experience at an athletic store on Thursday night- i was fitted for new trainers- and my feet are big and wide.. so guess what the only runners for me a mens and grey. BORING!! i spent $250 on them, and felt crap about it all.
One of the girls in the 30+Crew FB group said something that sticked the other day "you have to love your trainers" ....Well today Bec and i went to Paul's and we got the "ol buy one get one free" .. and look at the babies i brought home!!!

I'm in LOVE ! can't wait to show my new shoes the water front tomorrow morning :) ♥

Today a very random -yet wonderful thing happened. Bec and i were shopping in Typo when we got an  "excuse me.. but i think we met on line" hehehe it was one of the lovely 12WBT-ers! what a great surprise! it was so nice to meet someone on this lifestyle change like us :)

She said something that will remain with me forever- and she possibly doesn't realise ... "your such an inspiration" ... who me? i thought . an inspiration? a weight loss inspiration? Me ?  over lunch bec and i spoke about it- i felt really silly -like a fraud? then i had some time to myself tonight so I've had time to think about it. I've lost 17KG ! 17...Kilo's! I AM an inspiration to myself, to bec, to my mum, to my best friend and to my lovely random fellow typo shopper.

My Name is Rach Bellwood. I've lost 17 Kgs in 7 weeks. and I am an inspiration.

...................................... imagine when I've lost 50kg  :)
