I am a generously proportioned woman. I have never been thin. I was a fat baby, that turned into a fat child, and am now a fat adult. I am not obese, I do not have so much weight to lose that people would think I am amazing for losing it, but it still has to go. Every year I promise myself that I will finally wear a bikini on the beach, and every year I fail.
So this time I have decided not to do it alone, and have joined the 12 week body transformation to kick start a new, healthier me. So far we are running through the planning stages, and I have found people amazingly supportive. I feel that the tasks we have to do prior to starting the challenge are well thought out and really make you re-evaluate your lifestyle and choices. For too long I have been a couch potato, sustaining myself on food and excuses.....so its time I changed that! My aim is too lose 15kgs over the next six months, with an ultimate goal of 20kgs. This would get me within a healthy weight range. Time will tell!
So this brings me to another long term goal of mine. Running.
I have always envied those who can run for miles, they seem almost god-like to me!
Due to this I have also started a running programme, and I have to say I am loving it. I feel much better in myself, and its something I can see myself sticking too, unlike all the gyms I have wasted money on over the years.....
So there it is. My current plans. I hope to post here about my journey, plus my usual posts over the coming months. Wish me luck!
