Hi, I'm Lucy. I'm starting the 12 week plan today, and this is so much more to me than just losing the weight.
For a long time I have put myself much further down the pecking order than is acceptable. In doing so, I've propelled my career forward but in the process have made myself lose personal time, interests, healthy habits. It's not unusual for me to start work at 8am and finish at 9pm, having not prepared myself for the busy day so end up eating chocolate and crisps from the vending machine. More than my body is asking for, all that my emotional eating is craving.
My family lost my nana last May, 4 weeks after my relationship ended, and both my dad and uncle are very poorly. I think amidst all of this I just let myself go, almost felt guilty caring for myself, when it felt as though so much was already ruined. Negative I know! But sometimes it seems impossible to pull yourself up.
12 months later and I've accepted things enough to make the first moves.
I've gained two stone and feel it more than just is discomfort with my appearance. My ankle joints feel tighter, I haven't exercised properly for so long that my body feels as though it has seized up. My skin is dry, and spotty?! I'm conscious I've got myself here and it's my choice to pull myself out. So here we go! If you are on a similar journey I would love to hear from you and support each other to healthiness. Xx
