If my scale was in one of those animated movies, it would have had a terrified face on as I approached it this morning. It was so lucky that I had lost some of the weight I had gained yesterday. My weight is now 66.1kg. I weigh more now than when I started 3 days ago but at least it's less than yesterday!
How did all this begin? It all started the moment I stepped outside, a couple of years ago, to walk the dogs (they are the ones that needed the exercise). Slowly, I lost weight and became fitter. I lost so much weight that people who had not seen me in a while would screech and yell out the fact in these high pitched, astonished voices. I began to think that I must have been enormous but don't ask me how much I weighed back then because in those days I would not even weigh myself. I can tell you though that I have dropped 3 dress sizes since. I have a picture, taken in July 2006, of me and a baby elephant and the only difference between the elephant and me is that I am wearing a purple top!
I am an accidental exerciser. I was fat, unfit and unhealthy. I needed to do something about it but I didn't. Walking the dogs was the first reason I stepped outside; so I started exercising by default and I can't claim any credit for it.
When I think about it, it really is pretty wonderful ...
