It's Time For A Change!

It's Time For A Change!

This might look like any ordinary photo to you, but to me it made me stop and think. Last night I went out with my friends which I love doing but instead of me wearing my usual pretty size 8/10 dress I wore a size 12 all in one suit. Don't get me wrong, it was a lovely outfit and I felt wonderful in but it made me realise just how much weight I'd been putting on over the past few years. I eat a lot of 'junk food' but it's hard not to when I freak out when faced with vegetables or fruit. It's been this way for as long as I can remember but it's got to stop and now!

I was always able to eat what I liked when I was younger and never put on any weight but back then I was always active and burning it off. These days I find myself still eating the same foods but then sitting in front of the TV or the laptop which is obviously not working for me. I want my flat stomach back and I'm finally prepared to work for it. I've been planning on joining my local gym for a few months now but it's just never been the right time until now. I am going to rejoin next Tuesday and go at least twice a week. I'm going to cut out the snacks, the crisps, the sweets and the fizzy pop which I consume an awful lot of. I'm going to try and eat an apple a day, even if it kills me and I will try my best to eat healthier foods when I can.

It's going to be really hard for me but I am going to give it a shot, I really need too as I'm starting to dislike who I see in the mirror. I don't see the young attractive woman I once saw, all I see now is the wobbly belly and the chunky hips and I don't like it.

So, thsi is my first step in the right direction. Today I have admitted to myself and to all of you that I do need to change which is a pretty big step in my eyes. I bet a lot of other people are feeling just like me right now so I know I'm not alone, which makes me feel a bit better.

Tomorrow is going to be the first day of the new me - Wish me luck x


  1. Chris you don't look like a size 12 in this pic. Please don't try and lose too much weight, maybe just try eating more fruit and veg.

    1. Aww thanks Mel but I felt huge. I think I'm bigger now than I've ever been and I need to sort it out x

      Today I bought lots of fresh chicken and meat ready to start cooking some new non processed meals tonight x
