It’s the weekend

It’s the weekend… almost, still need to finish work today. Can’t wait to sleep just a little bit later than 4:30 in the morning.

Some good and bad news. Good news: I had a bad weigh in yesterday, but, I’ve lost a dress size. Bad news: None of my work uniform pants wants to fit me any more, struggle in the mornings now to find something that fit. I need to go shopping now :)

Note for today: If you eat what you’ve always eaten, you’ll weigh what you’ve always weighed

Thursday blues

I went for my weigh in this morning. So dissapointing. Not even a full 2kg down. Why oh why? I’m extremely constipated… think the loo and I need to arrange an understanding…. On the bright side… luckily my appointment weren’t on a friday, that would’ve been such a bad start to the weekend. Have one night to get over this blues

Note for today: Don’t give up. All of your hard work will pay off soon, stick with what you are doing no matter how hard it gets


I’ve managed to come right with my injections, I twist and twist and eventually it goes in smoothly. No more pain etc. At last…. took a long time.. (Think we understand each other now)

I’m really struggling with the food, I’m not a good cook, so experiencing….. well, not so great. I only do chicken and veg or mins and veg…. feel like a chicken now. Really need some advise on more meals.

My weigh in is tomorrow, bit nervous. Really hoping for the best. Have a great day everyone…. “Small Saturday” today

Note for today: STRENGTH…  Anyone can workout for an hour, but to control what goes on your plate the other 23 hours…. THAT’S HARD WORK

Crazy Normal

Almost normal again. Feeling a bit drained this week. Headaches are taking over. Looking forward to my weigh in

Note for today: A negative mind will never give you a positive life

Monday blues

I’m back to work today. Still a bit hazy, will probably take some time to get back on my feet 100%. Very tired. Taking this week on with a bang. Have a great week everyone

Note for today: Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations

Back in South Africa

Im back in South Africa. Still trying to adjust to time zone again. Feeling like a zombie. All back to normal again from tomorrow.  (more…)

Another week almost gone

Another week is almost gone, my holiday is coming to an end. Australia is such a beautiful Country.

Still going strong with the challenge, just feel that weight is going slowly off now

Note for today: Just keep swimming

Another end to my day

Still struggling with the time difference. Coming back to South Africa on Saturday. Missing my children.

Still going strong

Note for today: Just believe in yourself, even if you dont, pretend that you do and at some point you will


Feeling a bit out of it today. Not sure if the jet lag is only settling in today. tummy ache, tired, headache.. too much to mention. Craving garlic roll. Going to lay down now, it’s 19:45 in Canberra Australia

Note for today: Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from negativity

New Week

A new week is ahead of us. Can’t believe we’ve come so far. Feels like yesterday that we’ve started. Good luck for this week

Note for today: Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.

I’m Karen Goosen from Durban KZN. I’m married for 15 years to the love of my life, we are blessed with two children.

I love camping and just being around family. Braai time with family is my absolute favourite.

I’ve been struggling to lose weight for the pass 17 years. I have no self-confidence and would like to be more active with my children
