24kg down and what now?

What now? geeze cant you just celebrate the massive achivement of losing 24kilos?

Just stop and think a sec.........

In Feb 2011, your life was predictable, you went to work, you had one or two bottles of wine nearly every day, you ate what ever in the hell you wanted and didnt give a stuff and nothing much happened, same shit different day.... but you were unhappy with how you looked and you couldnt go for a swim at the beach because you were embarassed about how you looked and have been for the past 10 years!

So whats different now?

I saw an advert for Michelle Bridges 12 week body transformation! I remember looking at this ad and thinking 'Well you can choose to do something or you can ignore this as you have done for the last 15 years of your life, what do you want to do?

I thought and I thought and I thought of every bloody reason and excuse why I should NOT do this, but I kept coming back to thinking "Karon, its time" You may be healthier than all your friends now even though you are obese but it wont last!

6 Months ago I wouldnt even walk 200m to the station, I would get to Wynyard and get the lift up because I was too friggin lazy to walk up 30 stairs, how shit is that??

Well no more............What have I done in the past 6 months?

Walked 8 km with Rod ( my biggest supporter) for the Mothers Day Classic in May and raised some money as well!

Did Dry July and didnt drink for 31 days July 2011 ( shit that was hard but I did it)

Walked 11km Sutherland to Surf with Anne Looby and cheered on by Deb and Graeme Stevens

I actually go to the gym and I try and do better every time I go. I am not embarassed to be a fat person in the gym, for Gods sake I am there to better myself I am not there to perve ( well maybe just a bit, those blokes who stand around and do fuck all are not that bad on the eye :-) )

I really need to thank all of my supporters, I cant do this without you, I always need support and a kick up the bum, but I am very confident I will do it , I will lose weight and be the best version of myself I can be!

Now I have started by blog, I am going to update every few days, so please stick with me, the journey will be worth it I assure you. :-)

kazza, karon, coxy1958 or any other name I go by!


  1. 24kgs is a HUGE achievement. Well done to you. And you are right - this journey is so worth it and there are so many things to learn along the way. Mainly how to perve on those guys in the gym without getting caught - lol.

    Looking forward to continuing this journey with you over the next few months xx

  2. Thanks Margaret! at 52 I am pretty good at perving without being spotted hehe see you soon :-)

  3. I am right with you Kaz,all the way! You can do it,you have done so well already! Deb xx
