This evening I’ve taken a huge brave step. I’ve stood on the scales and faced the music, in public. I’ve joined my local Slimming World group. The weight on the scales, it wasn’t pretty but to be honest it wasn’t a shock. I’ve weighed myself very recently so I knew what to expect. I’ve saw the photographs of myself in a swimsuit on holiday, I know the size of the clothes hanging in my wardrobe. I know need to lose weight. I had to ask for the extension belt on the airplane (embarrassing but true) but no-one else is going to lose this weight for me. I need to take action myself, I need to do it for myself and for my family. I want to look in the mirror and like what I see staring back at me.
Time to focus on the important stuff, put my health first and get back to this…
This is my motivational photograph.
I was still overweight in this photograph but this is the weight that my body conceived my gorgeous little boy and if I can get back to this, hopefully one day I’ll be able to give Little Mr a brother or sister and complete our family.
You can expect weightloss blog posts, photos, menu ideas and reports on how I’m doing.. I’ve got 30 months until hubby and I are financially in a position to be able to afford another baby so I have 30 months to lose a LOT of weight. Bring it on!
