|This is what 25.5kg of corn, spaghetti, baked beans & tuna looks like|
One of the awesome QLD Crew members, Ingrid, organised an event today, where we had the opportunity to donate goods to charity. The idea was that we donate goods to the weight value of kg's that we've lost. It was called "Our Loss, Their Gain."
|It was actually our gain|
|It was heavy!|
The little picture is 25.5kg. 25.5kg that is gone from my body. Fat that has disappeared from me, never to return. I didn't realise this would be such a moment of truth. I was just a chick donating some stuff to charity! I believe I got just as much out of it. I lined the cans up and took the photo above and got emotional. I carried the cans to the car this morning, almost breaking my poor fingers! Thank goodness that weight didn't all come from my hands hahaa!

All up we donated over 200kg - from a small group of amazing people, this was a fantastic effort. I recommend doing this yourselves. Even if it's just for yourself, at home, weigh things around your house and see and feel how far you have come. Whether it's 2kg, 20kg or 50kg.
This was the day I realised how far I have come (so far). I told Ingrid that this event for me is no longer called "Our Loss, Their Gain."
"Our Gain, Their Gain."
