Helga is losing it...

Yep.... it's disappearing, slowly but surely. And no, it's not my mind. Lol, I lost that ages ago!!

Back in October I embarked on a very necessary diet. Doctor's orders. Bloody man!! *Sigh* But he was right. I was hauling around some serious butt, and my body was starting to protest. Just a touch. Okay, okay, it was a lot!!

So, whilst grimacing and bearing it, I embarked on the diet. It was tough to begin with, but I got over the first few hurdles, and started seeing the results. Pretty damn quick actually! Suddenly, I could see a little light shining at the end of what had been an awfully dark tunnel. Suddenly I could see that I had been kidding myself when telling myself that I looked okay as I was. Suddenly the chance of not being a lard-arse was looking nearer and better!

As the months have progressed standing on the scales has become a pleasure and not something to be dreaded. And I've had to go shopping... for new clothes. Never mind losing 4 stones on the scales (that's over 25kgs for you metric peeps, and 56lbs for the Americans popping by), but I've been losing inches too!! Plenty of inches!! I measured my "vital" statistics before starting, and this week decided to measure them again. 5" have gone from the bust area, 13" from around my waist and 6.5" from my hips. I'm sure you'll agree that's a lot, and no small wonder I've had to hit the clothing stores!

Lol, when telling a utterly delightful male admirer of my inch loss, he immediately wanted to know about the lost inches around my bust... was I now sporting deflated balloons?? Well, I'm still wearing the same cup size, but I'm pleased to report the inches have come off my back... and my back is pleased about that too!!

I've lost over half of what I wanted to lose, and I've set myself a little target of when I want to have shed all this excess baggage. I'm hoping to wow the crowds at the Bloggers Convention with my new, svelte figure, and now the hard work begins with toning the saggy bits which are just as saggy. But, no pain, no gain!! And who knows... maybe I'll be baring just a little bit more of me in my profile pics!!

The wording in the cartoon says "This towel must be very heavy"...

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

One hell of an achievement, Helga - you can be very proud of yourself! Good luck with the rest of the re-engineering

Settles down to wait (im)patiently for the new profile pics

You being happy with you is always more important than what anyone else thinks. But like TQG, I think you should be proud of what you've accomplished and good luck with your goal!

Sits down next to TQG, chewing his nails, and asks "Who do you think will be the lucky one to TAKE those new pics? "

That's an amazing achievement - I understand your comments on my blog better now!

So what kind of diet have you followed; Weightwatchers?; Atkins? GI?, High Fibre?

Look forward to the new profile pic!
