First before shots and my real start!!

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

Today is the first time I have taken Before photos. I must say that they were very confronting and so I might just wait to post them once I have at least one after photo. Although I do look in a mirror from time to time I just never saw myself that way. The best way to describe it, if you are familiar with Austin Powers, Mike Myers wears a “fat suit” to play “Fat Bastard” well, that is what I looked like. As in I look like “me” but in a fat suit. My stomach is so big and my face can barely be seen amongst all that fat.
I am not trying to be mean to myself, just realistic. It was a great thing to do and I believe that regardless of what the scales tell me I will take a photo a fortnight to either encourage me for making progress or remind me of how unhealthy I am right now.

SO today is day two of consecutive exercise. I am very excited about it and must stick it out. I know I can do it. I just need to do it. SO I vane came home and did a few sets of squats and lunges. GO me!
emoticon emoticon I am currently 130kgs or 286.6pounds AHHHH!!! I am going to need to lose my friend to be healthy and fit. My friend and I realised that she weighs 50kgs or 110.2pounds and that it the amount of excess fat I am carrying right now. WOW. Perspective is great!!

    Any journey starts with the first step. I know the urge to have it all gone yesterday, but this journey is all about changing what's between your ears and in your heart and the body changes in consequence. Wishing you all the best, and I'm glad you are on our team.

Baby Rey

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

I found a great blog from BabyD, she explained that she has not even conceived a child yet and she is naming him/her baby D to have someone to do this for. I have adopted this and my baby will be Baby Rey.

Baby Rey, I am not sure if you will be a boy or a girl but I will promiss from now to love you. I have had a hard time with my health and in my heart you will be a miracle no matter what. I know that I need to get healthy to give you the best chance in life and I will love you so very much. I already do.

My promiss to you is that I will stop eating chips, chocolates and lollies (candies). I will try and eat food that makes me feel healthy and not ill (and for you I will try :)

I can't wait to meet you, give me a year or so as I have at least 40kgs to loose.

Big hugs your future mum xo

Making progress ...

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

I thought that I was doing nothing and that my work and life were getting the better of me, but today I realised that I am making progress, it is not major progress but I am setting the ground work to make significant change in my life.

I have made a commitment to cutting out chocolate, I am aware of the foods that make me ill and I am avoiding them, so far so good. Just when I thought that I was letting it all go I realised I am actually moving in the right direction.

I appreciate people's encouragement, this site is great!! I am working on getting better and better at using :)

    I think the changes have to happen between the ears before any other part of the body can change. Sounds like you are well on your way! Keep thinking and listening to yourself!

Run down ... but at least I am running???

Thursday, October 06, 2011

I think it is time to make some significant changes in my life. I am in a job that drains me, I have little energy by the end of the day and I am therefore looking for other work. I want to have it all, a job I am happy with, a healthy body and energy !! :)

I am happy that my husband told me about Sparkpeople and I am new so I am finding my feet still but very happy to have somwhere to get encouragement and vent!! :)
