Saturdays Round 2 Finale i discovered i have got so much more out of 12wbt than just weight loss

When we all start 12wbt we do it usually with one thing in mind and that is to shed those kg's and to fit into those size 10 or 12 jeans. But you know what on Saturday night i realised there is way more to 12wbt than just strippig back the layers of flab and producing the best version of yourself. I have lost my kg but gained so much more. I realised that 12wbt isnt just a diet it is a program that produces a tonne of support and brings people together from all walks of life in all different stages of their own journey and makes life long friends..During round 2 this year i became forum firends with two very special and inspiring people #imajica #Leitchy i had never met these two people before only on the forums. We chatted and supported each other throughout the 12 weeks both on the forums and private message.. We were all on our own journey and all quite different journeys. But all with the same main goals. On friday night the perth grew put together a pre finale get together at a bar. When i arrived waiting outside for me was imajica (patrick) with welcoming arms like he had been my friend for years. When the two of us walked into the bar leitchy aka greg and his lovely wife walked straight up to me. i finally got to put a face to the cyber names. Then at Finale the three of us with our partners celebrated the round together as though we had known each other for years. What im trying to say here i think is that this program goes deeper than just a weight loss journey amd a journey of self discovery. The support and friends ships are over whelming. .During my journey of self discovery i have got so much more out of it I have found life long friends in 12wbt from different parts of australia that i would never of had the chance to meet. Below are two pics one of myself and my daughter with greg and myself and my daughter with patrick. two people that before saturday night i had never met before.

Round 4 2013 Wrap Up Qland You Rock

Well on Friday we were all pumped for our weekend in Brisbane and what a weekend it was.  Queensland crew you ROCK. You guys and girls showed of your city and all its awesomeness.  I loved every minute of my weekend in Brissy. From the minute I arrived and one of your lovely member Tracey English picked three of us up at the airport and drove us straight to our hotel door. To the Margie workout which was so much fun. I think i found a new friend with Margie just sayin lol.

Your entrance into the finale was just sensational.  So much hard work was put into organising all those little bits. So well done Queensland Crew.

I loved Mishes workout on Saturday. The vibe in the room was awesome. A little brag now the best part for me was my personal best. Winning the planking mini challenge 11 min and 05 sec. (who does that) I actually learn from the mini challenge a really good lesson and this is that yourmind is so much stronger than you think. I had a time in my head to beat last years winn…

I can now hold the Ski Rope Yeah Me

Haven't blogged for ages so thought time to put fingers to the key board and have a ramble.

I just came back from the most amazing holidays with my family every.

We have aways owned a boat and spent every holidays with the kiddies on the murray water skiing.  Everybody in our family have a ball but i was always too scared to try it. I tried once a few years ago and could not physically hold my own weight and keep hold of the rope. I can remember back then there were tears.. So from that day on watching from the side line like most things in my life was my entertainment.


Over christmas this year on our annual family skiing trip i decided to give it a crack. Surely by now i should be able to hold that friggin rope. Woo Hoo i did it and had so much fun.  Besides consuming litres of murray water through my mouth and nose i actually did it,  It felt fabulous out on the water you could not wipe the smile of my face.
There is absolutely no doubt that the kids will have to fight me from now o…

A pictures says 1000 words

As part of my prize in round one was to have profess photos taken at star shots. OMG my family and i had an amazing day and i just LOVE them and the new me.

But the pictures below are beautiful they mean more to me than just a photo.  Before my 12wbt journey began i was always the one behind the camera. The thought of me having my photo taken made me feel physically ill. Its sad really because i dont have many photos of me and my kids together growing up. So in a way i was being selfish because of my own self distruction and fears.  Out of all my 12wbt round one prizes this prize was by far my favourite. For the first time in my life i got a photo that i dont just like but i absolutely love them.

To think i was going to let this voucher expire. I think it expired on the 19th of December and i had them taken on the 16th. I can thank that to another 12wbter splasharama. I did water duty with Mary at the last finale workout and she asked me if i had them done. We started chatting and she…
