BANANA AND ALMOND BUTTER TOAST WITH FRESH BERRIES AND FIGS

[vegan]

Pre-exam breakfast for some much needed brain fuel.

SEARED SESAME TUNA WITH BROWN RICE, AVOCADO AND BROCCOLI 

[pescatarian]

Haven’t had any meat or seafood in the house in months but I saw these beautiful organic tuna steaks and couldn’t resist. Tuna steak is cut in cubes and marinated in chilli garlic sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, lemon juice and soy sauce. Flash seared so that it’s still a little raw in the middle. Served with brown rice, steamed broccoli, avocado and another splash of soy. 

COCONUT BLISS VANILLA ICE CREAM WITH FRESH FRUIT

[vegan]

Post exam pick me up. Coconut ice cream with fresh figs, raspberries, blackberries and mango! Topped with shredded coconut. So good. 

Ah okay so here’s my annual Christmas before and after, I can’t imagine I’ll have too many more of these I’ll be able to make since I’m so close to my goal!!! Yay ^.^
2012-2015 but didn’t start my journey until early 2014 :)

Ah this first photo. Wow. Haha.

Stats:
First photo: 2012?? (I think) -110kgs (242lbs)
*just a guess as I didn’t weigh myself until I was about 106kgs a fair while after that photo was taken and I started my journey.
Second photo: Today (4/10/15) -74kgs (163lbs)

Almost the same outfit. The pants are just a different colour of the same style but I owned them both at the same time.
In the first photo I remember literally always wearing tank tops and those pants, never wore shorts, I was too big by that stage, which was depressing as I had always worn shorts in the past. But yeah now most of my wardrobe is too big which is cool to experience as I never thought it would happen to me in a million years that something would be too loose. I can’t describe the feeling I get when I try on something in a clothing store and have to go get it in a size smaller because it’s too big. I remember trying on a size 18 jumper in Kmart once when I was big and I cried because it didn’t fit, not even close. Now I’m a comfortable size 12 (Australian sizing)

They say that losing weight doesn’t make you happier, but I disagree. I’m so much more comfortable and healthy in my new body than I ever was when I was big. I still have a way to go. I have loose skin and extra belly fat that I don’t want and I would like to tone up a little bit, so I’m not stopping here. I’m going to keep going until I reach my goal!! :)
