Well, hopefully you’ve seen that I’ve made two whole items of clothing! And I am very proud of myself for completing them.
What I’m not in any way, shape, or form, proud of is the person wearing them. Me.
Being brutally honest taking these photos on the self timer of the camera was a hideous shock this evening.
Taking a leaf from other bloggers posts on finished objects, I listed the basics and what I liked and what I didn’t. I like both of these patterns. The biggest thing I want to change is the model wearing the clothes, and that’s me. This is NOT how I look in my head or how I want to look.
I know I am overweight and that my stomach is a mess after making the boy. And that being overweight doesn’t help at all with the stomach situation. But I did not realise that I looked that bad. It makes me want to cry, but that would be self-pitying and I got myself into this mess and I’m the only one who can get myself out of it.
So this is my action plan:
* Stop snacking
being honest I snack a lot and it’s not on good things.
* Make healthy soup and have that at lunch time
* Reduce portion sizes at evening meal
* Move more.
I have an exercise bike and I will do 30 minutes a day on it and I will get up earlier to make sure I get it done.
I will also do an exercise DVD 3 times a week.
* Publish my weight and measurements on this blog so that I am accountable
It’s a simple recipe – consume fewer calories than I use and exercise to help with the deficit and to tone up. I’m 30 in November and I don’t want to look like this.
Today is done.
Sunday 12 June 2011 is day 1 of the journey to a new me. I’ve started a new blog, girlgetsthin.wordpress.com to document my journey.
