When your head finally catches up….

I signed up for my first round of 12WBT in April last year.  I was overweight, unhappy and felt like I was out of control and needed to find a way to bring everything back to where I wanted to be.  A week after I signed up, I left for a holiday in Cairns.  I had never been to Cairns before and took heaps of pics and asked fellow tourists to take pics of me.  When I got home and looked at all the photos, whilst they were great memories of a really lovely holiday, they were also a wake up call.  I could see how much weight I really needed to lose, it was there, right in front of me in living colour.  And it really reinforced to me that I had made the right decision in signing  up for the program.

And 12WBT has really helped me.  I have lost over 10% of my body weight so far and am determined to lose the rest over the next round.  Logically I know that I fit into smaller clothes and that I am fitter and healthier, and by extension a happier little Vegemite.  But it wasn’t until I went shopping with my cousin today that my head actually caught up with what has actually been happening to my body.  I went to the bathroom and looked in the mirror.  It dawned on me that I was wearing exactly the same outfit as I wore last April on my tour to Cape Tribulation.  My brain finally registered that my body has changed shape.  And so lovely readers below I present you with the pics, one from Cairns and today’s shopping pics.

It just goes to show that it only takes a few months to make a world of difference to your body and your life, sometimes it just takes a good look in the mirror to see it.
