Cura Romana Update – Three Months After The Program Finished

Thursday, April 28, 2011 by Amanda

I had an amazing, inspiring and very promising result recently. My children and I went on a 2 week holiday up north where we were staying with several different friends. As it was only 2 weeks, and I was trying to pack as lightly as possible, I decided not to take my scales with me. However, during the second week of our holiday Christchurch was hit by the 6.3 earthquake which devastated the city. I feel very blessed that our children missed this event.

My husband and I decided that it was best to keep the girls away from the city so we spent another week with friends. I was overwhelmed by the support and offers from friends for accommodation and transport but I do digress. From there we flew to Wellington to reunite our family. My husband was lucky enough to secure a short term contract there so that we were able to be together.

So that’s the background on how I came to spend 3 weeks drinking 1 or 2 glasses of wine each night – everyone we stayed with was either in holiday or visitor mode – and eating a lot of food I wouldn’t normally. Sometimes the only food presented at a meal was things I would prefer not to eat. Consequently, when I arrived in Wellington I was rather concerned as to what the scales might say …

You can imagine my surprise when I discovered that I was only 500 grams heavier than at the end of consolidation and on the next day only 100 grams. In the past, I would easily have put on 5kgs in the same situation.

Over the past 3 months, I have found the following:

  • My weight fluctuates from day to day but stays within 1-2 kilos of my weight at the end of the program.
  • If I have indulged, I find it very easy to restore my health and vitality by eating simple proteins, veges and fruit for a day or so.
  • I am more diligent in keeping track of my weight and so am much quicker to make adjustments if necessary.
  • My weight loss appears to be permanent although I will need to go on the program again to further reduce my weight.

Have you recently completed a weight loss or any other personal change program? What differences are you noticing in yourself?
