Taking It Off... – Week 7

Well, I’m almost there! Only one week to go on the Shannan Ponton 8 Week Weight Loss Challenge and let me tell you the second last week was tough. I’ve told you about my dodgy knees before and last week they were really playing up. This forced me to train at a lower intensity than I would have liked but the good news is, it didn’t stop me. I still burned the calories, I still put in the extra effort and I still stuck to the diet plan. It’s become a habit now – a good habit.

The lower intensity meant that I only recorded a loss of 1.6 kilograms, but it’s still a step in the right direction and so far I’ve lost a total of 18.9 kilos and 84 centimetres since starting the challenge 7 weeks ago. I’m going to fall short of my original goal of 25 kilos, but I can’t say I’m disappointed. Not in the slightest! I’ve learned so much about myself on this journey and can now do things physically that I never thought possible. I even bought a pair of pants this week that are a size I haven’t been able to fit into since I was in my twenties!

The important lesson I learned this week is that I can’t afford to become complacent. This will end up being a life long journey that will change as I get older and fitter. I’ve already started planning for the next stage of my weight loss journey and am looking forward to changing things up a bit. My progress has surprised me so much that I’ve adjusted my goal weight down by another 11 kilos!

There’s one thing I haven’t planned for yet – what am I going to write about once the challenge is over?
