33 days to go

Yes, only 33 days to go until I will be starting that madness called triathlon. It will be exciting to see how it goes. Right now I have done all three disciplines, but never one after the other. I do still have some weeks left though, so there will be plenty of time for training. 

In other news, this whole getting fit thing has resulted in me reaching my first goal: getting below the magic 100! Kilograms that is. And this morning, as I stood on the scales, a little fist pump was in order. It wasn't much, but it was below and I came in at a lovely 99,9! The first real result. 

Yes, the BMI thingy still has me at extremely obese (35,8), but part of the fat has been turned into muscle already. I know, because people keep telling me that muscle weighs more than fat and I do look like I have lost weight. And when I measured my waist a week ago and then again yesterday, I found I had lost about 4 centimeters. Not bad.

So, what with all that training, I should be able to loose a bit more. Although I doubt I will ever be as skinny as in that photo!

    1. I think that if I were to cut out the vanilla sauce with my fresh berries, it would cut at least another pound off!

    1. Thank you so much. I was very pleased to see that number pop up. Hopefully soon it will the next goal, but that will take a bit longer I think.

  8. What a difference ! It's nice that with all the sport you are doing you loose weight. I am a lucky girl, I since my 20th when my weight was 59, I am now since ages 65 kg. Too skinny at my age is ugly !
