It is Jan 1 2012 and I find it safe to say I have failed every new years resolution for the last 8 years.
Every year I tell myself, this is the year, the year I lose the weight and keep it off, this is MY year to get my body sorted. It never happens.
Last year I got close! I lost a LOT of weight (near on 15 kilos) for my wedding. But add the stress of losing a baby and starting a new job, where I am the only female and the word 'diet' is a bit of a joke to these boys, it's very safe to say, the weight I lost is back, and it bought some friends with it...
It was a slow creep up, I barely noticed it, until I went up 1 size and then another....My beautiful jeans that I have owned forever no longer fit, I have rolls that I have never seen before, and I am more uncomfortable in myself than I have ever been.
I am now the largest I have ever been. At what I believe is about 88kgs, my bmi puts me in the obese category.
I have decided that this year is MY year! I refuse to spend another year miserable about my weight and refusing to do certain activities because of my size.
I signed up for Michelle Bridges 12wbt. http://www.12wbt.com/
I know a few people who have had great success with this and who are also going to take part, adding a support network that I need.
I am no longer going to make excuses for myself, enough is enough!
I aim to be 60 - 63kgs by my birthday, which is July 29th. So I have 7 months to lose 25 - 28kgs which is almost 4 kilos a month, I hope I can do it, and I hope this blog will help to keep me accountable!!!
In this 12 week challenge I would very much like to be in the mid to low range 70's. I have a photo of myself in my bathers.... but its pretty awful, so I will steel myself to post that photo with my first official weigh and measure.
Wish me luck...
