This is the final week of my Getting Under 60 series. You can see the first post here.
I was really (really) worried about my progress this week. I think last week’s birthday treats caught up with me and I started craving more sugary and fatty foods. Walking through the grocery store was really hard…I just wanted chocolate and chips and junk. Then, on Wednesday, I thought I’d weigh myself to see how I was tracking – 61.2kg! I was horrified and despaired at the thought that I would not only miss my goal, but I’d actually gain the weight I’d worked hard to lose the last couple of weeks.
I stayed positive though and committed to sharing the hard truth here on my blog. But, to my surprise, after working hard to only eat good foods (which was really hard this week – we have had a crazy crazy week with assignments and uni commitments…like seriously crazy) yet we still attempted to stay healthy. Here are the results:
Weight: 59.9kg (-0.1kg)
Body Fat: 30% (-0.6%)
Morale: I am ecstatic that I actually reached my goal!
Exercise: a couple of bicycle rides, walking, squats and lunges.
Food: I have splurged on Subway, wedges and hot chips. Good foods have been avocados, eggs, fruit juices, and salads.
Drink: water, Agrum (blood orange), hot chocolate and homemade juices.
I DID IT!!!
TOTAL Weight Loss: -2.4kg (62.3kg – 59.9kg)
TOTAL Body Fat Change: -2.8% (32.8% – 30%)
I can’t tell you how good it felt to see that number; relief swept over me and I was so proud of my achievement even though it’s a small loss in the scheme of things.
Thanks for joining me through this challenge and encouraging me along the way.
Here is a picture of one of the juices we enjoyed this week.

Have an amazing Monday!
