12lb loss so far :0)

Yup only 2 more lb to go and i've lost a stone which is a good feeling i can tell you. I slowed down this week (only lost 1/2lb) but it's still a loss. Since i last blogged i've been back to my dr and he's put me on something called Xenical (Orlistat) which hinders the absorbsion of around 1/3 of the fat i eat. It's a motivational booster and the side effects that it can cause is making me really look at what i eat fat wise which for me is a good motivational tool. I'm pleased to say that i've only had one instance of seeing the side effects and that was on day 3 of taking them. Since then i've been very very good lol. I also have to take a Vit tablet once a day because you absorb Vit E via fat so i add more into my diet with the vit tablet. Not a bad thing really as i need to take a multi vit anyways to help boost my immune system.

Finally i've got Alex to take some photos (so this is me 12lb lighter than when i started). They are not flattering at all (the whole purpose of them is to inspire me to lose more weight)

i still have another 39lb to go to get to the weight i want to be but i'm going to take progress piccies every month from now on so the next ones will be on the 16th March. Also a week today i start the Leap group on a tuesday night which includes an exercise class but i do have something to keep me active more now anyways. Meet the stepper lol

On the knitting front i'm spending half term looking for half finished projects to either frog or finish. I'm not starting any larger projects as i can't see the point in knitting stuff in a larger size that i'm going to need in the end (yup i'm that determined). I have yarn set aside for certain projects but will wait till i've hit goal weight before embarking on them. In the meantime i'm knitting a shawl for myself to keep me warm in the winter made from babylonglegs yarn (will post piccies later) and i'm going to finish off 3 hats lol.
