Six Months Of Transformations
June 11, 2017 6:51 PM

It has been almost six months since my last update here. Six months that has been dominated by transformations and changes in my life - both inward and outward. I am not done yet, but I have gathered some photos to try and recap some of these events. I have also picked out a few photos to represent the changes of the seasons here in Nättraby in Sweden since my last post.

The Renovation
Four months ago I hired a contractor to change all the pipe systems, renovate my two bathrooms and wash room (partly). A BIG project in other words! The renovation could have been done a few weeks ago, but what can I say - contracters... They are a special kind of workers, no rush kind of workers (at least here in Sweden).

Below are a few photos of this No Rush Renovation of my house. Hehe.

In the middle of the renovation, what happened - MICE found their way in to the house (roof and walls). I really did not want to kill them but finally I just had no choice... :(

Summer. I took this photo today on my morning walk. :-)

My Weight Loss Journey
Now I have never really been over weight in my life until a few years ago when I gained about 30 kilos (66 pounds), mostly because of medications I took with the side effect of an increased apitite. Finally last August I stopped to take them. I thought the weight would just melt off me, but no! I lost about 4 - 5 kilos (10 punds) then nothing more happened. I was devastated!

Luckily at the of December last year I read about the Low Carb High Fat diet and started to eat like that, wow! In five and a half months I have lost 15 kilos (33 pounds) and I feel amazing! I love that diet! It works great for me. I have also started to take long walks 4 -5 times a week and a few weeks ago I started to go to the gym again. Yay! :p

Before: this photo was taken on Christmas Eve last year, the big eat day of the year, so of course I was very happy! Lol! After: a few weeks ago. I took this photo after my walk, so of course I felt very happy then as well. :-)

Like I said, a lot has happened these past six months. It has been a very hectic and stressfull time, but also a time where I have learned a lot about myself and my house. And the funny thing is, I have realized that we are a lot a like my house and I - a slow work in progress. Who knows how this will turn out?
