I had a realisation today...not quite an epiphany but a definite realisation of how hard all this weight I'm carrying around is making my life!

We had another glorious morning here and I met my girlfriend and her baby at our local markets for brekky and a catch up.  Baby got restless in the pram and mum wanted to shop so yours truly offered to carry her for a bit!

Whoa it didn't take long for her to get heavy (you mumma's are probably laughing now) and when I asked how much baby weighs, her mum said 8.5 kilos...this is where it hit me!!

Weight for it (sorry about the pun!)

"Sh*t, F*ck" I thought - "That's less than I have lost, and its taken me less than 20 minutes to get over hanging onto it" (no offence baby). Then it really put into prespective that I still have about 40 kilos to get rid of - that's over 4 and half babies of the same size!

My life is going to be AMAZING and so much EASIER then!

Ha ha ! Funny but true :) Even losing a mere 5 kilos makes you feel so light!

When I lift Charlie (who weighs 24kg) and Lexie (who weighs 15kg) - when I lift them uo together into my arms it SHOCKS me at how heavy that 39kg is. Frightens me half to death that I used to carry that around..........

Have you ever seen this list?

The whole weight loss process becomes weird when you say that you want to lose an elephant's heart.

I laughed when I saw your post cos I had a similar moment today. I was straining and struggling with my suitcase when we were leaving Perth today, then stopped a laughed when I realized that it was 24 kg which is the weight I've lost. Actually, it was only partly funny. Mostly bloody scary!!
Working hard to catch up on blogs since I got home. Yours was one of the first! Will post a photo in the morning of my lovely coffee date with Kylie.
