6 February 2013 – 107.6kg the Almost 40 Weigh-in
It has been a very long time between check-ins and a baby has been made and delivered and he is 4 months old, so it is time to get back on track so here’s a start.
4 March 2013
Weight – 112.3kg – gym scales
Arm – 40cm
Bust – 121cm
Waist – 127.5cm
Hips – 137cm
Thigh – 64cm
In the 12 months since my last check-in I had my lapband removed and my weight started to blossom I hope to have my head back in the zone before all the good of the surgery is undone.
14 March 2015 – Weight – 115 kg
Waist at smallest point 105cm
I have had a scale addiction for as long as I can remember and I have weaned myself off, so it will be a once a month or so, if I remember but and the focus is on the measurements.
I have so much respect in you that you love yourself enough and that you have never given up on your weight loss challenge, remember these affirmations, I am, I will, I can. I hope you enjoy this quote:
Dwell not on the past. Use it to illustrate a point,
Then leave it behind.
Nothing really matters except
What you do now in this instant of time.
From this moment onwards you can be an entirely different person.

I don’t know you but I think you know Nicole Foster, I am friends with her on facebook, our kids go to the same primary school.
I have jumped into running and fitness, have always done things through my lilfe but always wanted to run, so your blog caught my eye.
I wish you all the best and every success.
I await your next blog entry as motivation to lift myself to the next level.
I thank you for that.
Hi Joann yes I know Nicole, thanks for following, I hope I can inspire you.
Well done Rachael for completing the Pinkies Tri!
I am so proud of you and the gutsy way you approach your commitments. May you always contibue to achieve and inspire others.
“You don’t have to be thin to be fit!”
Thank’s Ian, it was your belief in me that got me started, so glad you are my No. 1 Coach.
Hi Rachael, I too am training for the splash part of the splash & dash on Aust Day. I’ve done one practice swim in harbour BUT I too had same fears as you!
I would like to practice at least once more in the harbour, can you tell me the name of the swim club you swam with – I was thinking of contacting a swim club to tag along.
Hi Brett, I don’t know the name of the group, my PT invited me along, his name is Ian Gibson and the lady who he trains with ie the coach, her name is Tracey, they meet at 7am on Wed morning, I usually don’t get there until 7.20 and only get to do 1 lap with them, if you want to meet at around 7.20 I want to try and do 2-3 laps and another training buddy is going to come a bit later with me, she jokingly said she will be my shark bait, lol. They are a friendly group so just go along and introduce yourself and we have a coffee after if time permits.
Great to see your commitment – you can do this! Joining a challenge is the best thing for kickstarting you towards your goals.
You are awesome Rach! You inspire me so much x
Thanks for the example.
Regards from Brazil.
Hi Rachael, your post is really descriptive one. Really Appreciated.
