Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right?

I really need to find my mojo for writing and keeping on the weight loss bandwagon. Not that I've gained, I'm actually doing quite well at maintaining/fluctuating.

For anyone who does read what I write, thank you, and my apologies for the sporadic posts. I was never good with keeping a diary as a young'un, so I really don't hold out much for this blog, either. We'll see.

Last time round, I said that I'd explore the question of when something is too much further. Three months have passed and I really can't remember what I was going to continue with. My bad. 

We're now in to the sixth month of the year, which is really quite scary. I keep making (and breaking) all these promises to myself that "I will get my weight loss mojo back", "I will start meal planning again", "I will be more focused", but so far, they're not happening.

I've lost 20kgs. Am I proud of myself? Bet your bottom dollar I am. But right now, I'm at a stage in my life where I am REALLY happy being where I am. Sure, I want to lose more weight, I want to get rid of this freaking stomach (that's my problem area), but overall, I'm happy. I'm content. I know I need to make improvements in areas, and I need to make the time to meal plan again (right now, it's the end of semester (fact: three months since I've written, and for those three months I've been underground with uni work. Coincidence?) so I'm crazy busy with study), and I'm hoping that I'll be able to get that action plan happening once it's all over.

Yesterday was the first of June. I took my measurements (in centimetres) for the first time since 27 August 2012. Have a look, tell me what you think. I know what I think.

So, until next time. Who knows when that will be. Next time, I might even have some then and now pictures for you to.
In the meantime though, head on over to Little Goldfish Invitations & Stationery. It's my biz page. I'm really focusing on building my biz so that when I have times like these (in case you didn't know, my back has been on the fritz and had me out of action for 3-4 weeks now) I know that I can still have a stream of income of some sort.

Don't lose sight of your goals, and don't let anyone tell you that you can't achieve anything. Believe in yourself and you will go anywhere you want.

Well done Hollie. The weight loss is great, the measurements show real it seems you've found when fitting into clothes you couldn't get into previously. Go you!

That is a fantastic effort.. and you're doing the right thing by yourself by concentrating on studying so don't be hard on yourself.. just keep doing what you're doing.. because it's obviously working.. We're all proud of you xx

Excellent Hollie you did this for yourself and keep doing it. Things change when situations in you life change so adjust but make it work for you, It should not be a chore. Be proud of yourself and what you have accomplished x

Thanks so much Amanda!
Yeah, I'm loving being able to fit into my clothes again...and sad about stuff that is now far too big for me. I need to get around to taking it to get altered because it's stuff that's hardly been worn, or I love it so much I don't want to give it away!
And then there's the issue of needing new's tough!

Thanks Yvonne!
I feel like I should have been more dedicated to keeping this updated, especially seeing as how over the last year there hasn't even been an average of an entry per week! Oops.
I want to try to keep it alive though - I'm going to write myself a schedule and hopefully this will fit in nicely and who knows, maybe it will get more readers that way?
