I remember when I started losing weight... I would sit and calculate how long it would take me to lose the 75-80 kilos that needed to go. I figured that at a kilo a week, it would take up to two years. Of course, I didn't realize back then that as I lost, weekly loss would slow down, as I would not be shlepping around all that excess baggage! Today I am about 3 to 3-1/2 years into my weight-loss journey, and as I near my final goal, I'm lucky if I loose a half kilo weekly!
But it no longer matters. As long as I am going in the direction I want, the time required is no longer that important to me. WHY????
Because I am having so much fun FUN FUN! Losing weight is INVIGORATING! Losing weight is empowering! It really is!
