I am so pleased with myself. Somehow, despite the Indian food (my favourite) and the pizza I've eaten has made me lose 900 grams. Now I'm up to a 10.1 kilo weight loss (or around 22 pounds). I feel heaps better about myself, and I'm noticing little changes about my body - like my back doesn't feel as fatty, and my pants don't fit right.

So many more kilos to go - but not long until I reach my 10% goal, then my 15 kilo goal.

Watch out world, Mel's coming.

Oh yeah - was flicking through the new WW books, and they had some members in there with their old photos and their goal photos.

Now I love before and after photos, celebrities without makeup etc, but I really don't understand some of the pictures.

The changes people make. Like when you can't even see the person in the before photo - that they look nothing like the goal photo. I can understand it - as a bigger person I wish I could hide sometimes - but hey - this is who I am, and yes I'm gonna dye my hair, and wear makeup, and unbutton my shirt so you can see my clevage - hey there's enough of it to go round - and you'll be able to tell that no matter what size I am - I am proud of WHO I am.

Cause weight won't change that.

I guess though, some people aren't comfortable with doing that. So they use the weight as an excuse - to dress in a way they don't want to - to not do something for themselves - maybe they feel like they don't deserve it. Make yourself unforgettable, that will make you invisible and make the weight less noticeable.

Yeah right.

All I can say is don't do it. Be proud of who you are - the shape you have. If you don't like it - you can change it. It's taken me more than three months to lose nearly 10 kilos. But that doesn't stop me being woman.

Right, so its actually been four weeks since I've had a weigh in (yeah yeah, I can't count), but over that four weeks I maintained and managed to lose 600grams. I am so stoked - and I am 200 grams away from my first 10 kilos.

So... I figure 10 kilos should mean a reward of some kind, but I'm not sure what yet.

Tomorrow is weigh in day. I am slightly nervous, as haven't been to ww for about three weeks now, but, I feel the same, and don't think I have gained - so we'll see how I go.

The wedding was beautiful, and Tarn's mum had to sew up my top while we were getting ready - so thats a good sign (it was a tad too big). I have a couple of pictures, which I think I might get game and post!

D-day tomorrow. Watch out world.

(thats if I can climb the three/four flights of stairs to my meeting - I tripped up the stairs at work today and crashed my knee into the doorframe, so I'm in a bit of pain right now.

Okay, so its been about two weeks since a weigh in, due to the holidays and stuff. But I don't feel any different, so figure I am maintaining okay, but will find out for sure next Friday.

The big news is though: I'VE LOST A CUP SIZE!

Yes thats right - instead of the doubled, its just the d. I'm pretty stoked with that (although its lucky the Pandyr has small hands so he can't tell yet).

In other news, the wedding is tomorrow, and while I'm not where I wanted to be weight wise, I'm pretty bloody happy with the 10ks (give or take a couple of hundy grams).

Congrats Q & T. It's about bloody time.
