Hey every one! :)
This is going to be a personal/life post so skip this one if you're only here for the beautiful stuff ;)
Ok, so as you may or may not know, I've been battling with my weight for some time now. And when I say battling I mean me trying to decide on whether or not to do anything about it. I look at some women like Christina Hendricks and Adele, who are considered to be 'bigger/fuller figured' (hate that phrase) and think to myself that they look happy and healthy, why can't I accept myself for the way I am and just be happy?
If I were to wake up tomorrow and think: I'm not obese, I'm not atrociously unhealthy why not love myself the way I am, I would be able to have the occasional take away, eat biscuits and crisps every now and then and still be content. Unfortunately I can't do that. I have whats known as an addictive personality. Meaning if I like something I'll like it all the way. A packet of biscuits with be left as crumbs in my lap in one sitting without a thought!
After hearing the my soon-to-be Godson will be being christened on the 15th of April, every one beamed with excitement, I on the other hand heard alarm bells. I am bigger than all of the other god parents and my friend the new mum? Back in the jeans she wore before she got pregnant -_- haha.
I decided that I couldn't stand up there in front of a room full of people the way I am. I want to eventually loose a tonne of weight but even if I only lose a little in the next two months, at least I wont be the size I was up until recently. In the past few weeks I have lost 11lbs which I am ecstatic about! I hope to continue on in the direction :)
If you find this post interesting, I can do more about it? If not that's fine too :)
Thank you for stopping by and reading :)
