96.9, I'm A Survivor.

As I was burning serious calories on the treadmill at 4am this morning and listening to music on my Ipod, Destiny's Child's Survivor started playing. I actually paid attention to the lyrics and smiled as I raised the incline from 6% to 8%. See, it reminded me of all those who felt I couldn't lose weight even if I wanted to. It reminded me of the guy who said "Enyonam, don't kill yourself. You are beautiful just the way you are" and yet left me for a skinnier girl. It reminded me of the number of times that people have said mean things to me about my weight and how I was "losing my figure because of food". (Sigh).

I actually smiled because the lyrics were on point. In spite of all those mean words of discouragement, I'm here.I'm doing things my way and it's working. Infact, I couldn't help but sing along with my slight panting..

I'm a survivor
I'm not gonna give up
I'm not gonna stop
I'm gonna work harder
I'm a survivor
I'm gonna make it
I will survive and
Keep on surviving.

After all of the sadness I've felt, losing weight is the best thing that has ever has happened to me and even if it takes me a year, 2 years or more, I'm definitely not going to stop exercising and eating right!

Oh! and I weighed in at 96.9kg this morning, meaning I've lost 5.9kg/13pounds since I started this journey in October. I will keep surviving! :-)


  1. Woohoo!! Keep it up! As soon as I read the title, that Destiny's Child song was going through my head! 13 pounds is amazing!

  2. You go girl!!!! I love reading positive posts :) 13 lbs is brilliant. I might have to put that song on my ipod but I definitely won't be getting up at 4am lol!

  3. You are on a roll!
    Keep riding that wave.
