My main concern right now is my health and fitness. Last year I lost 4.5 stone on the slimming world diet but I stopped smoking in January this year and have put quite a bit of that back on again! I have always used slimming world when I wanted to lose weight and it has always worked but I’ve decided not to do it any more because firstly I find myself eating too much because you can and secondly I want to devise my own healthy way of living so I don’t have to pay or rely on anyone else!
So today is the first day of the rest of my life! I’m not going to be weighing in weekly because I want to focus on how I’m feeling rather than the numbers! Feeling good is not a number at the end of the day it’s how you feel about yourself!
Anyway here are my statistic as of an hour ago –
Weight – 15 stone 7.5 lbs (I thought I was more than this so actually quite pleased! I’ve always been a big girl, I’m tall and am usually best around 12 stone)
Chest – 111cm
Waist – 100cm
Hips – 116cm
Thighs – 59cm
Calves – 42.5cm
Upperarm – 32cm
I will be eating healthily and exercising 3-5 times a week. I will write more about my diet & exercise at a later date – I love running but am struggling to fit that in because James doesn’t get home until 8pm most nights and he works away a lot so I can never get into a good routine with it. Today I’ve started a fitness DVD which felt really good so I’m just going to keep doing that for a while and hopefully going to get a treadmill soon too!
I’m really focused on making this work at the moment and when I’m organised and focused like this I’m fine, it’s the bad days that I lose control and when I lose control I REALLY lose control! Hopefully having this blog will keep me more focused!This is the most recent full length photo of me that I have, although it’s probably not a true reflection of how big I actually am as I think I look slimmer here.
So there we have it, you probably know more about me than anyone now 😉 I Will update my stats every month.
