Fat....the never ending issue

I am starting this blog again for several reasons

1. To journal my weight loss (more about that later)
2. To post the things i love to talk about whether it be coffee, vintage clothes, hair and make up or bunnies
3. Its about bloody time

So I was looking at some old photos of myself only from a few years ago and was horrified to see just how much weight I have put on.

In this photo above you will see me at my thinnest. I was a size 10 on below and a 8/10 on top. I felt healthy, was eating well and going to the gym at least 5 times a week. 

This is where I want to be back to. Its no lie that I am miserable being this size but I can only blame myself, through tough personal times I lost the motivation to go to the gym or do any form of exercise. And slowly the weight I fought so hard to lose crept back on. 

This photo was taken at the weekend and I am now at my heaviest and biggest clothes size I am now a 10\12 on top and 14 on bottom. Something I am not proud of or happy with.

So from now I am going to make that effort to get back in shape and get healthy and fit. Starting with small gym sessions at least 3 times a week and choosing healthier options. 

It will take time, there is no miracle fix, unless I win the lottery and then I can have it all sucked out.

I found this photo and although I can still pick flaws in it, this is where I would like to be back to by the end of the year. I turn 30 this year in October so I will be making sure I am at least down 1 dress size by then.

For me my vices are cake and chocolate. So I have options i now have to make a concerted effort to say no to cake when i buy a coffee from my fave coffee house and don't put the chocolate in the basket in the supermarket. I've done it before so i know I can do it again.

What are your food vices and how do you say no?

  1. Regardless of your weight you are always beautiful inside and out and you still look great. I am also a good friend of cake and chocolate & know the fast road to bigger dress sizes is all too easy. So I am giving you a big cheer and I have every faith that you can reach your goal. In fact I may even start my own blog so I can record my progress too. ;) Neat idea. XxX
