I did it! First 10kg gone - don't let the door hit ya!

Today is a milestone day for me for two reasons, only one of which I expected.

Today was the first day of school, for my gorgeous twin boys.  This, of course, was expected.

Today was ALSO the day I reached my first 10kg of weight loss!  Which was not quite expected - I thought it would take me another week to get there.

I am SO happy with today.  My sons have had a lovely, if hot, start to school and came home chattering about their various activities.  They also came home to a Mummy who feels like she is in a much better position to be a positive, healthy role model for them than she was 12 months ago.

Bring on the 20kg down milestone, I say!

You know, I could get used to this outdoor running thing...

I kicked off this morning with a run around the huge park across the road from my work.  This was my second-to-last run in Week 7 of the Couch to 5K program - which means I only have two more weeks to go.  Scary!

And you know, I actually enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would.  I'm starting to get used to the "headspace" of running outdoors, not constantly being able to check the timer to see how far I've gone and how long there is to go.  Probably also helped that I'm doing some penance from a few "treats" yesterday on Australia Day - whoops!

Onwards and downwards...can't wait to see 81.6kg - 10kg down - and buy the ThinkGeek tee I've been promising myself.

Welcome to Kath...V2

Ahoy!  I've decided I'm going to blog my journey of "30 by 30" - losing 30kg by my 30th in July 2011!  I'm already 8kg down, and about to start on the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation program to help me kick the other 22.

This is me at the start of my journey, 91.6kg:

This is me, three weeks ago finishing my first fun run, a 4.5k:

An awful finish photo, but I'm DAMN PROUD!  I can't wait to hit my first 10kg down, and just after that, getting under 80kg is a big psychological moment for me.
