Where to start…..
I’m married to an officer who is currently serving in Afghanistan and wont be back for at least 6 more months…. Yahooo…. …(WHATTTT!!! Yahoo – is she crazy I would die if that was my hubby… ) – well this is a massive gift to myself – I needed the time to focus on me and change me… and of course hubby I’m sure wont mind!! I miss him VERY much – and I love him with all my heart but what can you do! When the Army calls – you have to listen 🙂
Well anyways!! I have 6 months to get my life sorted! I started this on Feb 5th – my journey to ‘make my dream reality’…. Whats the dream you ask??
“To be happy with myself, to go shopping and wear any clothes I want not clothes that only fit me!… To be at least a size 12 and then from there – reassess! I want to be comfortable in my own skin. I want a healthy BMI and I want to do alot of this before hubby comes back…and then to help others who have been here in this spot like me…”
I don’t ask for much do I!!! – Well lets get started its now 17th March 2013 and I have decided I want to share this with you all – and somewhere where I can also record my progress – I need as much support as possible so ifyou have read this much PLEASE COMMENT ! I would love to hear from you – words are a powerful tool, they can hurt, they can make you cry, they can make you love and they can make you happy.
Progress so far…. My starting weight was 120kgs – YIKES! yes I know for anyone who is smaller than this going OH MY GOD – I know!! I’m doing it too and for anyone who is bigger than this and not happy… please follow me I will help you as much as I can.. Everyone has to start somewhere..! So I have lost 12kgs at the moment
12kgs!!! in 5 and a half weeks! – I’m STOKED!!! I’m happy – this is WORKING….. is it a diet… NO…. is it a replacement meal plan… NO… is it Lap Band Surgery… NO… am I starving myself… NO!
All I am doing is eating ‘Clean, unprocessed foods, cut out all refined sugar, VERY little carbs (if any)’
and Exercising for at least 1 hr 5 times a week… (but at the moment I’m smashing this and exercising more hehe 🙂 I think I’m addicted now! )
Well – this is a blog about my progress, recipes I personally USE, not just fancy dancy ones! – Information about why I do things, eat things, etc – and other great information on how our body works from research I do on the net – myself. I will also try and provide many tips and tricks to keep this new lifestyle simple, intriguing and full of variety!
I’m in NO WAY – a dietician. a GP or a Nutritionalist…. just a simple stay at home Mum to 1…so please if you arent sure about something ask your doctor…! I’m doing what I feel is best for me – and its working…!
Feel free to ask questions in the comments of posts etc and I will be happy to try and answer them too! I’m hoping one day my blog helps at least 1 person – if I can succeed with one person! Then all this will be sooo worth it!
Signing out for now…
PS: from this day backwards in my blog posts – they are copied from a forum that I originally posted in… From this day onward they will be new and fresh 🙂
