Weigh In

Just a quickie to let you know I lost another 1 kg last night taking the total to 13.3 kgs lost in 13 weeks. Very happy with that because I know I am retaining fluid with this disgusting hot weather.

I guess you would have to live on Mars if you didn't know Adelaide is having a record breaking heatwave. It's day 4 of 40+ temperatures. Wednesday got to 45.6 deg and it was just disgusting. It was like a sauna outside. We are expecting a cool change next week of 39 deg!! Up until last night's 7 day forecast there is just no relief.

So our pool is getting a big workout. Thank god for a pool in this weather. Steve is always complaining about the maintenance he has to do on it but when you look at the fun we've all had in it this week, it sure makes it all worth it.

I haven't walked since Monday which I am missing. This weather really takes it out of me and I just have no energy by the time I get home from work. Plus most nights have still been 40 deg at 9pm so there is no way I'm walking in that. I have been trying to do some laps of the pool but it's hard when there are so many people in the pool all the time. Oh well, I'm not too worried. It will cool down eventually.

So needless to say, all we will be doing this weekend is staying at home in the air conditioning and pool. I just hope we can see a change come through by next weekend.

The heat is horrendous huh? Good news is that the bureau of meteorology are saying it's now going to be 37 next Thursday and 35 next Friday - so fingers crossed it might continue to drop!

Hi Tina
Hopefully we will get some relief from the heat this week! I know I've really been missing my walks I only walked twice this week. Had a loss of 0.2kg this week so will be aiming for 0.5kgs this week as I would love to get to my 25kg mark!But whatever happens will happen. I'm so proud of how well you are doing! Take Care will talk soon. Sam x
