So here we are at the end of my first 12WBT round. While I have signed up for the next round which commences straight after this one, I am a little sad it’s over. I think what I’ve realised with this program is that you can stick to it 100% and get amazing results. You can also use it as an opportunity to learn all of those things that have eluded me (or I’ve outright ignored for many years) which may not result in short term results but this program is about lifestyle.
The first couple of weeks I was consistently losing around 2.5kgs a week and then illness and injury kicked in for a while. Towards the end I’ve had a few social occasions that, while I never went overboard, did mean I didn’t get quite as big losses. And I’m ok with that. Sure, there’s a small part of me that would have like to lose more than 20kgs in 12 weeks but what lesson am I learning other than sit at home and cut out all social activities?
By the way, don’t consider anything I write as a judgement on anyone else. If there’s one thing I’ve tried to drum into my head during this program, it’s that this is my journey and I neither pass judgement nor feel envy for others. That would be the quickest path back to the slippery slope for me.
So while I initially had a conservative goal of losing 10kgs in this round and look like finishing 15-16kg lighter, I’m entering the next round with renewed determination. I’m going to crack that 100 and land in territory that is so unfamiliar to me I’ll feel like Rover on Mars. But I’m kind of excited by that. I’ve done overweight for an awful lot of years, now I’m ready for fit, healthy and fabulous!!!!!
