New year and renewed efforts to get myself feeling good.
I went off the deep end from mid October 2012. I moved house and finally moved in with my partner which is amazing and I'm insanely happy about. I used this busy time as an excuse to let my eating habits slip and the odd naughty meal became the regular naughty meal with snack upon snack upon snack. Then Christmas was sneaking up and I thought "why bother now? might as well wait until New Year and start after my birthday. So I took full advantage of all the Christmas goodies and ended up with a wicked stomach ache on several occasions!
So I find myself here...back in the 200s with nobody but myself to grumble at. I swore in August I'd never go back there but here I am. I'm prepared to sort this out. I am renewed and I am refocused. I know I can do this because I WAS doing this! I just need to keep my mind in the game and my eyes on the prize!
This week is my transition week while I get back on track then next week is strict time!
Here are some of my goals...
Get under 200lbs - 9 lbs to go.
Any loss each week is a bonus - lose each week.
Add exercise in from the beginning - no more putting it off. There are no excuses.
Be bikini ready by the end of June - we're planning a holiday for my partner's 30th birthday and I would love to feel confident enough to wear a bikini away. The bonus here is that nobody would know me except my partner and he likes me anyway so I don't need to worry about him! The last time I wore a bikini on holiday was when I was 9 years old...20 years is long enough, I think it's time to do a repeat performance.
