Getting smaller...

Today is the first day of my 'diet'.

There, I've said it. I know that most slimming clubs or books or videos don't like to use that word but I will, because I want to.

I'm determined that this year my stomach will get smaller; my arms not so flappy; my legs not so wobbly; my thighs not so chafing. And I want to look HOT in a swimming costume for ONCE in my life!!!!!

There are also health issues that come with having extra weight but for the moment, what can I say, I'm superficial - I don't want to look fat anymore. It's going to be hard and I'm going to get fed up.

I know, at times I sound angry and I am but more at myself that it's taken this long to sort myself out. Although to be fair I did lose weight before the kids but then when I became pregnant and also afterwards, I just ate.

 Don't worry, I won't turn this blog into a 'losing weight crusade' but I might just let you know how I'm doing once in a while just to get it off my chest (no pun intended there).

  1. Good luck. I lost 2 and a half stones and countless inches in the 12 months up to Feb 2011 and felt good about myself for the first time in many, many years. I have kept the weight off until now! A few pounds have crept on over Christmas and I don't like the feel of it, so I'm back to eating sensible portions, not eating between meals, and doing some exercise.

  2. Thanks Scarlet and welcome to the blog. I know I've probably got about 3 stones to lose so it's going to be a bit of a slog but I'm going to get there.

  3. I have about three stones to lose too. I'm just going to go slow and steady and hope that it comes off gradually. Good luck!
