Set it Free......

I am still on a high from reaching the 30kg mark! This has been a major milestone for me (I am sure I will say this again when I get to 40, 50, 60…….) one where I did have to break through some emotional barriers in order to push myself over the mark – I really feel like a weight has been lifted from shoulders (no punt intended!) – I feel like I am sitting at the top of hill and about to start the incline down to the 40kg mark….
 I posted my resulted no only on my blog but on the WW Community and also the WW Facebook group (basically told anyone who would listen) and I received a lot of great and very motivating comments (thanks everyone) – one particular comment that I though we very fitting for us all was left by Jules from the WW Facebook group:

I saw a quote the other day about when you loose something you expect to find it again, so instead of loosing weight, think about setting it free. You have set 30kg free!!! That's awesome! It won't come back to you if you release it!"

Wow that comment is really fitting with where I am at – it made sense to me as with every kilo I lose I do feel like I setting more and more of myself free….


  1. That's a great way of thinking about it! Set it free!

  2. I agree! It's always grated with me to say I've "lost" weight and then wonder where & when will it be "found" again!

    Setting it free is a great way of looking at it!
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. What a perfect way to think about it. I'm setting myself free from the weight. I'm sending it out to find some other poor unsuspecting person. Hopefully a skinny person who needs it.

  4. Hi Jody,

    Yes totally agree - I remember someone saying to me I must decide the pros and cons of hanging onto my 'weight' as it serves some kind of purpose for me.
    I think we are both discovering that purpose is no longer relevant for us. I read in someone else's blog and didn't write where sorry the following which expresses it more eloquently than I might:
    '' I do not need my armor anymore. Because now I know that being who I am is what will protect me the most''.

  5. Hey Judy,

    setting 30kgs free is a truly remakable achievement. Your positive attitude to this life changing journey is an inspiration
