Update 1 year on (1/1/2014)
If you told me a year ago that I would weigh 30 kgs less in 12 months, I would have been hopeful but unconvinced. I have a long way to go but I am liking the changes I am undergoing. I can now buy clothes in 'normal' shops and I don't avoid mirrors as much.
In 2014, I want to build on what I have started. I need to nurture myself and bring grace into my days. I need to find balance in my home and work. I need to make time for myself non-negotiable.

From 2013...
I usually come fairly low in my list of things to do! After the kids, work, house, garden, partner, friends and all the rest, I haven't had the time or energy to look after myself. The trouble is you don't realise that respecting yourself actually helps you to be effective in the other areas of your life. So, 2013, you are all about me!!

    “Dont ever be impressed with goal setting; be impressed with goal getting.
    Reaching new goals and moving to a higher level of performance always requires change, and change feels awkward. But take comfort in the knowledge that if a change doesn't feel uncomfortable, then it's propably not really a change.”
    -John C. Maxwell

    You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

    Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!
