I just did my "Best Year Yet" goal setting for the year.
It has to be done. It all points to one thing. I think it's finally time to really get serious about losing weight. Gotta lose the lard!
I have had 3 babies in 3 years, and for the first time in what feels like ages, I am not pregnant or breastfeeding.
So I have the perfect excuse now to diminish this ample frame of mine.
I was tempted to do some before and after photos. I still might.
I have a stack to lose.
I just worked out from "The Biggest Loser" website that, for my height, I am most definitely obese (like I didn't know that?!) and I need to lose about 55kg.
I would like to end up at 70kg.
I kind of think that if not now, then when?
The time will pass regardless.
I think I just need to finally acknowledge that I am an intelligent and beautiful woman. And that I am perfectly capable of losing weight. I just need to get on with it and do it.
I just need to make the choice to lose it, to gain my health, and to begin to live life to its full potential. It's a mental game.
A mental game that I will win. Hopefully blogging about it will help?
Edited to add - since writing this post back in 2008, I have lost around 40kg. I am currently maintaining rather than losing. But not gaining either. I am happier than I have ever been.
