My 3rd round is coming to a close & a message for my big sister :)

9 months ..... in 1 week it'll be 9 months and 50+ kg gone.

My life has done a 360 to say the least, in 9 short months.

Round , 2013... There's something special in the air this year-  round one will be my 4th round, and by the end it will see me at my first "healthaversary"  whilst that's so scary, it's bloody exciting too! 

One thing I'm really excited about for round 1, 2013, is that my sister is going to join me on a 12wbt life change.I'm so excited for her.  I know what a huge step this was for her, not only cause i know her well, but I've been there, i remember having to make that decision, the leap...and it wasn't easy.

So to my beautiful Sister,

Nothing about changing everything in your life is easy, and don't underestimate this on any level ...
It's. HARD. but ohhhhh SO worth it!

The mental changes you will go through, will surpass the physical ones to begin with.... it's an experience, it's life changing, and it's all kinds of freaking AWESOME!

Darling Big sister ... enjoy this moment and take LOTS of photos in this body you don't love so much right now- cause let me tell you in a few short months-  you will be the best that you can be, and it will be awesome !!   I'm already so proud of you for taking this leap of faith , and I'll be here for you every step of the way even though we are hundreds of miles away.

You're a mum of two beautiful babies, and a wife, and a daughter, and a sister.  You've GOT THIS !

All my love, encouragement, love & light

Me xxxx

I don't want to say much about my Emazon 1:1 experience today other than it was life changing and I feel like i could get addicted to Emma's energy...

All I want to do is post these photos I took after my session at terrigal during my reflection time, so ill always remember how great today felt .

Clarity , justification, tools, time and energy are what I gained today. I'll be forever grateful .

Learning to hear the silence....

It's no secret that i don't do silence or my own company very well...  i will openly admit that. It's been 33 years since i lived alone (and I'm only 33!) and to say the least this is a shock to the system!

 It's been 2 weeks since i stepped out onto the solo living field, and this week has been the toughest, yet it's allowed me to grow in a way that i didn't even notice till this morning.

Let me explain...

For the past 6 years my routine is to get up, turn the radio on in the bathroom, so i have music and noise in the shower (a solo activity) i then carry that radio to the bedroom,and get dressed, carry it to the kitchen and listen to it while having breakfast. Get int he car with radio on. Arrive at work and turn on laptop radio feed. get in the car with radio on. get home and turn on radio till t.v is switched on.

Get the picture ? yup i love noise and music :)

So flash forward to two weeks ago - My bathroom and bedroom radio is broken. and I'm no longer able to stream radio from work on my laptop. so there's been a forced silence in my life-and i think I'm ok with it.

It only dawned on me this morning, when in silence i stood in my room looking at myself in the mirror after dressing...seeing a new person. a changed person. a stronger person. someone who decided to take on the world, and is doing it. (okay maybe not the world but my own body and health at least) and she's doing it in silence. and shes ok. she's still loosing weight, still going to work, still washing clothes,and eating good food, still going to the gym and maintaining friendships. it's happening.and in silence. it's quiet. and that's ok.

with silence i get to think, which isn't always a good thing... Living in my head.  I'm an over thinker (perhaps even it's queen!) but this past week I'm understanding the need for silence. to quieten the mind. to meditate. to think of myself, and to remember good memories. 

This might seam like a silly blog post to write, and i did question myself at first- but i realised that this is about growing, and changing , and me. I'm proud to stand, sit, shower, dress, eat and work in silence.
