Battle with the weight

Every now and then I keep looking at myself in the mirror I like what I see- a nice looking woman with a bit of a flabby tummy nicely covered under jeans and a jumper. This slim mirror makes me look thinner than I actually am and only when I have noticed horrible, red stretchmarks on my tummy and couldn't zip up my favourite every day coat, I have realised that all these months

I've I was fooling myself. I'm not pretty, I'm fat, embarrassed and upset that I have managed to become so awfully fat. I don't want my friends to see me like that, my husband will never admire my body, I will never feel confident in a fat shell.
I have tried different dieting brands who kept me motivated for a short while, but once I was back to my normal life healthy eating didn't last long. Not because I didn't want it, just because I'm bad at cooking, bad at improvising and inventing new meals and bored of having the same food over and over again.

This week I have seen lots of very inspiring photos of ladies who have managed to lose weight in 3-4 months. I thought if they can do it, I can do it too! Commencing this week I have started running on a treadmill, for my bright, happy, thinner and confident future!

If you feel the same please join me, let's chat, let's motivate each other, let's transform ourselves!


  1. I feel the same unfortunately i dont have a lot of motivation and chocolate keeps calling me

  2. I've struggled for some time to lose weight, but have recently found that the key for me is eating small amounts regularly through the day - I'm currently eating every hour or so, keeping it relatively healthy but if I want chocolate, I'll have chocolate but keep it in moderation. I've also reduced m portion size for my evening meal so I'm eating a normal portion rather than matching my husband's. It seems to be working so far - 9lb off in 4 weeks :)
