Now or Never.

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as who you become by achieving them.

– Henry David Thoreau


A few months ago I received news that absolutely floored me. I’m not quite ready to go into it just yet, but it concerned someone very close to me and has given me the jolt I needed. It’s such a shame that it takes something really awful to happen to make you realise you need to make serious changes in your life.

I’ve said this so many times before that even I am sick of hearing it, but I am determined to make 2014 the year I lose the weight I want to.

I’m back at the gym, and will even be starting personal training sessions every second week (because I work for a charity and that is all I can afford…haha!). I’m taking additional steps to eat healthier and cut down on the booze. I want to become more of a ‘conscious eater’ and listen to what my body needs.

There were many more things I wanted to say in this post, but I think I’m going to leave it at that.

Thanks for reading (once again!).


Sending this into the void…

Someone very wise and very dear to me once told me….

“Accept that which you cannot change, and change that which you cannot accept.”

Over the last 8 years, I’ve become desperately unhappy with myself. I’ve lost focus of who I am and my once confident self has disappeared. I look in the mirror and I can’t see anything good anymore. I’m terribly overweight. According to the “health experts”, I’m obese. I never thought I could actually get to this point, but here I am, tired of feeling this ashamed and self-conscious.

So, with my long-suffering boyfriend by my side for emotional support, I’ve decided to devote the next year of my life to reaching my target weight, and become healthier and happier. I want ME back!

MY AIM:  My birthday is 26th November. So, on my birthday in 2011, I want to step onto a scale and weigh what I want to. I’m still doing some last-minute tweaking on my weight loss plan and will post it as soon as possible, so keep an eye out for it…

So, here’s to the next 365 days!
