Today I have reached a huge milestone in my life, I now have lost over half of my body weight. At my biggest I was depressed, had two beautiful young boys, but depressed non the less, hated myself for looking so awful and just ate myself into a overweight unhappy person.
My lovely husband has supported me the whole time during our marriage and at times I know he has wondered why we are still together, but we still are and now happier than ever.
I started on my journey to turn myself into a healthier person three years ago, just by asking myself If I really wanted that extra piece of bread, or that choccy bar (see my earlier blog) didnt join any slimming clubs (done that, been there, got the tee shirt) just focussed on asking myself if I really wanted to eat. Once I started to loose weight I found it spurred me on to loose more.)
Half way through I joined a local leisure centre gym with a friend and worked hard. My son wanted to play badminton and I found myself for the first time doing sports with my children, the first time afterwards made me cry.
Instead of strolling with the dog I marched with music in my ears and gave myself milestones. I am a 20 year fan of Take That and last year promised myself that I would get to the front at Wembley and get to touch lovely Robbie et al, which I did (We had to queue from 8 in the morning and had to run to get to the front!!!!)
Then 8 weeks ago found this forum, which has taken me to the next level of fitness. I love running, although it is hard, I am now not averse to challenges,
I love reading all your blogs and you have all helped me to achieve my goal. A huge Thank You to you all and Im going to spout those famous words- If I can do it anyone can. xxxx
P.S. Huge treat to myself- a bright yellow running top- I love it and wore it for the first time today because I am a runner!!!
