    3/23/2018 12:42:45 PM, by CHIRUKEN

    This morning I was up at 6:30am (my usual weekday time), Bright-Eyed and Bushy-Tailed, greeted hubby and the KIF’s (was quietly amused at the looks of suspicion I received...apparently me being in a good mood first thing in the morning is suspicious behaviour lol), and bounced my way to the kitchen....

    Today is another day and I am still here. How do I feel? Embarrassed and a lot scared still. When I shared my weight with a couple of close friends yesterday at dinner, one responded "but you can't tell. You don't look like you weigh that." Funny thing is I always hear this and have heard it all my ... Read more

    Taking a break from the routine of conscious exercise and food tracking as I will be on holiday and won't have access to my regular gym or personal food prep.
