A quarter of the woman i once was is gone....

I've been writing this post in my head for weeks now, just waiting for today to happen. So now it's here it should be easy right? .... wrong - it's so hard.. i feel so weird....i've been waiting for this moment for 32 weeks- reaching a mini milestrone, the 1/2 way mark.. and now it's here?!?

It's been 32 weeks since i started this life change with www.12wbt.com and yet it feels like years some days, and weeks others. All in all,  the last  8 months have been fun, tiring, exhilarating, life changing, new habits forming and inspiring. It's been 8 months full of proud moments, struggle moments, sadness, happiness, mostly good food choices with a few bad thrown in.
Mostly I've learnt alot about me. Things i like but never thought to try, my limits and how fun it is to push them. That I'm not as fearful as i thought i was, and that  i .can.do.anything!!

So what are the stats?
I've gone from size 30/32 to a size 18/20



Week 1 (June 2012)
 Chest (cm) 154

Waist (cm) 155
Hips (cm) 176
 
Week 32 (January 2013)

Chest (cm)131 (23 smaller)
Waist (cm)121 (34 smaller)
Hips (cm) 151 (25 smaller)

So what does 50kg look like for me?

My Face Changes

Week 8 (-10kg)                                                                                Week 32 (-50kg)
 So thats it! 1/2 way to loosing 100Kg !

See ya 50KG !!!!

  26. Hi Rachel,

    Amazing work!! You look fantastic. I have been (and am still on) my own weight loss journey, dropping from 110 to 70. I still have a way to go to get to my final goal. Your Who Am I? at the side of the page brought a tear to my eye! I too am finding out who the person is behind the weight I was hiding behind. It is pretty exciting!! I am starting to let the real me show!! And you are right, YOU CAN DO ANYTHING!!! and that is the best feeling in the world!
    Congratulations. Here's to the next 50!!

    Wow well done! I was so encouraged by you're results in a short space of time. I am 156kg and am starting my 1st round with michelle this month. my ultimate goal is 64kg. I'm hoping to lose at least 12kg in the 1st round. Reading you're blog is so inspiring. well done and you go girl for the next 50. Linda
