I've got my 10%

Sunset on Australia Day at Semaphore. The beginning of the heatwave

My new hair. I had it coloured last night and am very happy with the result. And yes I know my computer desk needs tidying - LOL!!!!

I am a very happy girl tonight. I lost 2 kgs taking the total in 14 weeks to 15.3 kgs and I got my 10%. I am loving this journey and the wonderful friends I am making so I really want to thank each and every one of you for your support.

I truly believe it has finally sunk in that I don't need all the crap I used to eat and I'm not craving or looking for the chips, chocolate and lollies anymore. I'm enjoying trying new, healthy food and I'm loving the way I am feeling.

We had an interesting week. For those that don't know, Ashleigh had an accident in the pool on Sunday night. She accidently got hit with a plastic water pistol and the bleeding from her nose wouldn't stop. To make matters worse, the blood was coming out of her tear duct which I have never seen before and it really freaked me out. I called an ambulance but because of the heatwave in Adelaide, they took over 40 minutes and it had finally stopped so I cancelled it. The next night, she woke up at 1.30am and the bleeding was worse so I called the ambulance again. Luckily they were only about 10 mins away and advised us to go to the hospital to get it checked on case it was broken. Luckily that was ruled out and it hasn't bled since but it was very scary.

The weather has cooled down a little. After 7 or 8 days of over 35 degs with most of those days over 40, the last couple of days have been around 33. Bliss!!! Although tomorrow is going to be 43 again. I'm over it!!!!

The kids have settled back into school and life is a blur of school, work, sport, homework and normal household duties but I wouldn't have it any other way. I love this busy time in my life.

Steve and I are getting on so much better. He is communicating better and life is good. He even surprised me by winning one of those travel auctions to Mildura which will be fun. Not sure when we will take it though, maybe later in the year in Spring.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Tina. Firstly congratulations on the wonderful weight loss. Isnt it funny how easy it is when your head is in gear. I am not at that point yet but I am focused on the task ahead. How attractive are you !!! Men - why is it so hard for them to communicate - once they do it is so much easier. Must organise a coffee with my darling Tania and yourself at some point. I am thrilled for you. Martine

Tania said...

Oh Tina what can I say - love your hair, love your motivation! You're doing an awesome job with your weight loss, I so admire it.

Glad to hear all is ok with Ashleigh, I can only imagine how concern you must have been. Good news too regarding Steve - sounds like a trip away for the two of you will do you both the world of good.

Well done on making your 10%!!!
I am so glad you are hubby are getting along. Life is too short to be stressed all the time. Him going for the auction is his way of proving that he really does want to make you happy.

Shelley said...

You look fantastic Tina. Well done. I'm looking forward so much to my 10%.

I saw your earlier post about putting a photo on the side of your blog. Click customise in the blue bar at the top of your blog, it should come up with edit layout. Click the add-a-gadget link in the right hand column. Scroll through the list till you find the one that says 'Picture'. Then upload from your computer.

Hope this helps.

Woohoo, love your new look. Look at those beautiful cheekbones which you had hidden away. Keep up the fantstic losses Tina. You are doing great, it's really clicked for you this time.

Forgot to add in my comments, - glad that all is well with Ashleigh. That would have been awfully scary. Glad it was nothing too serious, or that it was broken.
