What I need to give up and what I need to change

This blog just may be my saviour....Since I started it earlier today, I've had very little else on my mind...I'm on a mission, I want to discover why I do what I do to myself...I hate the way I look, I have for nearly 10 years now, but I continue to create bad habits and sabotage myself
So firstly - Things I need to give up
Alcohol! I am making a promise to myself, no alcohol while on 12wbt
Large portion sizes - What's with that?? why do I feel the need to put so much food on my plate, and then eat it all too.
Left overs - I seriously have an issue with left overs, I clean everyones plate in my house that still has food left on it.
I eat when I'm not hungry....boredom eating.
I use my kids/family as an excuse not to exercise.

So then, what do I need to change?
My self value
My portion size
Boredom eating

My figuring is...I gave up smoking 4 years ago, cold turkey...I can lose 40kg. I think I've proved to myself that I can do something when I put my mind to it. I am officially putting my mind to this, I need/want to look awesome again. I want to walk down the street without the fear that other people are looking at me or judging me. I want to love myself again.

2012 is my year!


  1. Hi Linnijane, i really relate!! I think we can really support each other in this adventure we're embarking on (i am avoiding 'journey'!!). I look forward to reading more of your posts. Who knows what we can achieve in the next few months, how exciting!! ♥

  2. I must admit I prefer adventure too (mental note, I must remember to use that lol).
    I can't wait for Michelle to get into my head, I've been writing everything down what I eat and today was dreadful and I know exactly what I'm doing as I'm doing it...CRAZY!
    The next few months are going to be awesome, I can't wait.
