    I went from a size 24 to a size 8 in 3 years.

    Starting tomorrow I'm going to start a little

    experiment. I want to see how much weight I can loose in one week if I cut out soda, drink 2 lts of water daily and also take 10,000 steps a day. I don't really have a goal in mind. Just curious.

    I was so proud of myself today.

    I have lost 35 pounds and today was the first time I actually felt good looking in the mirror. Then the person who I considered my best friend looked at me and said "well you still weigh way too much for someone your height" and there went my happiness :(

    But not too much. I'm targeting getting my BMI

    into the normal zone which I think means losing 3 or 4 kg. It's difficult to be sure as the scales broke... Won't be getting more till after moving house.
