I feel like I have written this too many times before but my weight has been something that I have wanted to change for a long time. Now I need to put this in perspective first.
I am not unhealthy, I don’t have high blood pressure or high cholesterol or any other ‘side effects’ of being bigger. I do have ME and PCOS but neither of these only effect larger people. I am hardly ever ill, in fact the last time i was ill was a sickness bug over 2 years ago.
The thing is that my weight does not make me unhealthy but it does not make me happy. I don’t like to dance at parties because I don’t like to be looked at, I don’t take photos of my life events and memories because I don’t like how I look. I can’t wear whatever I like as I think I look awful. I have great fashion sense and love so many designers but it never looks good on me. I wear what fits, whats comfortable and what I feel minimizes what I don’t like.
I keep trying to start a plan and then I have a challenge in life and I eat a take away or something and then it carries on. Instead of cooking an evening meal I’ll have crusty bread or a oven cooked pizza.
A few years ago I did the slimming world plan and lost 3 stone and then I put it all back on again. The thing is it worked, I am not someone that loses big numbers I lose 1-2 lbs a week and this is where I get disheartened and give up. This time will be different I am going to plan more and stick to it.
I have made activity changes too, I am taking our dog Alfie out for a walk every day to up my steps and try and incorporate more activity. I do find it difficult as my husband goes to bed early as he has to start work at 03.30 so I only have an 1-2 hours with him after work which makes fitting exercise in challenging.
I will be sharing recipes here and also doing videos over on my YouTube Chanel.
I am really looking forward to being able to enjoy shopping and fashion and try so many new things. I want to say no matter what your size if you love the skin your in then good for you!! Go Girl!
