Life Journey Update

I've been following a life journey over the last 7 months.  It's involved a changing body shape and interestingly enough a changing mental shape too.

I wanted to give you an update on where I'm at with my physical body - today I weighed in at 100g under my personal goal.  I set this goal when I first began back on 23 July 2013. The last time I was this weight (60kg) was in 1999 and I think I maintained it for all of a month before slowly following the typical rebound scenario, up and up and up and oh yes, up again!!! Until finally arriving at a never before reached peak of 82kg.  Isn't this the typical scenario for so many people?

Avoid Yo-yo dieting

This is called Yo-yo dieting in the media today.  It's also a heartbreaking situation.  For those of you who, like me have been through all of the different types of diets recommended, pushed, tantalisingly held in front of us over the last 30 years, you will know that I'm at a point of 'how long will this last".  Physically though, I now know about nutritional rebalancing as a lifestyle, I'm confident this won't occur because my insides have had a shower!

However, interestingly, things have also changed for me mentally this time.  Usually I think great, and I slow down everything I've been doing, hence the yo-yo scenario begins.  BUT, what I've learnt over my last 6 months journey (by the way, this was 18 months faster than the last time I reached this goal) is that it's not about reaching the goal, it's about maintaining the lifestyle you have created.

About a month ago, my gym membership ran out.  At that time I was stil 3 kg away from my goal weight.  I had to make a DECISION.  The decision was about whether or not I would maintain my exercise regime, was it important enough for me to maintain it without the incentive of a gym to attend?

My DECISION was that it mattered to me for my health and for my well being and sense of joy in life to have the purpose in my morning routine to still get out of bed and attend my gym sessions.  Yes, I'm fortunate enough to have a treadmill and weights station conveniently located on my back patio!

My DECISION was also that it was about more than just the weight, it was about me showing and mentoring others into believing there was another way, that yo-yo dieting does not have to remain in your life.

Over the last 7 months, my personal development journey has been along the lines of self-belief and also about understanding WHY I'm here, what is my role in my life journey.

My WHY came in for me with a bang on Tuesday!  Here it is: 

I believe that everyone deserves to be nurtured to step into their Greatness,
with love, integrity, strength, passion and fun

I'm here to do that for others.  I've always understood that my role in life is one of servitude, that I'm here to serve mankind, but to truly discover what it is that I'm to do in that servitude has given me a bounce, a joy and a passion that is beyond description.

In my mind this blog today was to be an update on my weight loss journey, so I'll also give you those details now, not just my passion about my WHY!!

I began my journey at 82kg, I'm now 60kg, a loss of 22kg (or 48.5lb).

My waist has gone from 95cm (37.5inches) to 75cm (29.5inches)

My chest has gone from 105.5cm (41.5inches) to 92cm (36inches)

My buttocks have gone from 110cm (43inches) to 92cm (36inches)

My abdomen has gone from 107.5cm (42inches) to 85cm (33.5inches)

I'm feeling AWESOME!!!

Here are some before and after shots as well

Blog hopping along still

Take a look at the Blog Hop of the Health & Happiness Collective - there's some awesome thoughts on


In God We Trust

I loved this blog from Pam Grout today

Her book E-squared I've talked about before and I'm getting through the experiments as I've been reporting her, and now the universe is turning into an abundant joyous universe, one I'm celebrating wholly with amazing gratitude.

Enjoy the read and the words written - remember, your thoughts create your reality!

My Life: Energy Experiment 2

Okay, now I know the Universe is listening.  Now it's time for the next experiment.

In this experiment, it is about asking to see specific things.  You have 48 hours to ask to see a couple of different things.

Day 1 it was green cars

As I was working from home, and didn't venture out very much that day, I didn't get to see a lot of green cars. Later in the afternoon I was out driving, and there they were! 

Day 2 it was butterflies.

This day was a lot more successful for me.  It started off in the morning when I was working out on my treadmill - butterflies started appearing flying across the front of my vision.  After the workout, it was time for breakfast on the balcony, more butterflies appeared around a tree near the balcony.  Later in the afternoon I went out for a coffee, and there they were again, flying across the road on my way there, flying around the bushes outside the coffee shop, and flying around the car at the car park!  All up, Day 2 I saw 25 butterflies, how amazing.

This experiment is all about your thoughts sifting information and allowing you to see what you are looking for.  So, if you are looking at things negatively in your life, that is what you will be seeing as it's what your brain is showing you.

The universe is an abundant place and there are many things in our view, however, it is our brain that sifts the multitude of information and allows you to see what you are looking for.

Remember, set the intention, and it will occur!!
