Behind The Scenes 01 April 2022 - Finally Normal BMI Weight Category!

Weight Loss – Normal BMI

On Wednesday I was so happy to step on the scale and find that my weight had finally shifted from 73kgs to 70.7kgs. I was losing weight slowly but steadily until I reached 73kgs then for a whole month it was just not shifting even though I was continuing to do all the right things. What a pleasure to see that pay off.

When I checked the BMI calculator online I saw that for the first time in 6+ years I was in the healthy weight category. I only just made it since if my weight had been 70.8kgs I would have still been in the overweight category.

It has been a long battle over the years to lose weight so this has been a massive achievement. I have now lost 12kgs since last year.

And now my scale has gone on the blink. I’m not sure if it needs a new battery or if I need a new scale.

Mediterranean Flat Bread With Paprika Chicken, Yoghurt and Mint Pesto

In February I took part in the Bestmed Medical Scheme virtual cook off with Tumi Mogoai to make Mediterranean flar bread with paprika chicken, yoghurt and mint pesto. It came out beautifully. Unfortunately straight after that event I got severely ill with a tummy bug and I’ve struggled to catch up on work since, so I only managed to publish the recipe on my website this week.

However, the timing worked out perfectly since I received a thank you gift this week from Bestmed Medical Scheme so I got to open it during my live video and share the recipe at the same time!

It’s My Birthday Tomorrow

Tomorrow I turn 43 and I have to admit I am really loving my 40’s. I’m having a very small celebration with my sister in law and friend, and our families. Remember all the awesome veggies I got from the farm recently? Well we are making soup from those veggies and some homemade bread – such awesome comfort food.

I wish you all a fantastic weekend!

      I’m so glad you enjoyed my post. I can’t update on my weight since last week Wednesday since my scale broke – I need to buy a new one today!

  5. Congrats on your weight loss! I watched your video a few weeks ago where you said you had got stuck and weren’t losing weight anymore so it is good to see that your weight is going down again now. I need to lose weight and often go down a bit then get stuck at that weight. Then I lose motivation.
