Trying not to think of the big number !

Saturday, June 08, 2013

I need to lose 60kgs but all day today I was trying to say to myself 5 kgs at a time! But then I straight away remember nope it's 60kgs stop kidding yourself!
However, I realized that if I don't start anywhere it will stay 60kgs. I will look back and say "if I started in June I would've been so happy now" and all the other guilt thoughts! I can't wait for hubby to be proud of me! I can't wait for my kids to show their mum off to their school friends. Many parents meetings have been missed coz I'm so ashamed of myself. My friends!!! I shouldn't even go there. I havnt been to any occasions whatsoever and have lost every friend I had. My kids miss out on stuff coz I don't want to go from embarrassment. I want to take my third child kindy and not be the only fat mum there! Wow I'm becoming to realize that I really was just only existing and trying to even make myself invisible in any way possible. I've also got a 9 yr old daughter that Needs a great role model esp with body image. My 6 yr old son says " mummy you have to lose weight so you can live longer for us" he has even said it at restaurants :-( I guess this blog is about why I need to reach my goal as well 👍

    Definitely set small goals for yourself, and CELEBRATE when you reach them! I started with 15 lb increments, and now I'm down to 10 lb increments. the last 15 lbs will be 5 lb increments. You can do this!

    You're taking the first step and that's all that matters today

    The longest journey begins with the first step - so does the largest weight loss - Starting with a few small things and turning those into healthy habits and then adding other things as you go along is one way to make certain you will achieve your goal. Finding things to do with your kids as exercise can be as simple as taking ALL of you swimming - don't give me nonsense about not wanting to wear a bathing suit - I wore one at 350 pounds and nobody laughed or made fun of me because they could see I was at least TRYING to get healthier - besides there were women and men who were bigger than me in their suits too. Wear a t-shirt over top or just wear shorts and a shirt - whatever you do GET moving. I KNOW you can do it.
