I try in general to be a positive person and essentially I am, accept of course when it comes to my weight.
Here are my positives so far on 12wbt
I love that for the first time in my (dieting) life, I’m not actually on a diet, I’m slowly but surely changing my lifestyle, I’m learning new skills, new skills that are helping me lose weight, new skills that will ensure I lead a happy, healthy and LONG life.
I’m very conscious of what I put in my mouth now, I look at the calorie value and I decide if I really want to blow that amount of calories on whatever it is. This is a wonderful skill to have – to be conscious of what you put in your mouth and to actually care about it. I’m teaching myself not to snack (some days it’s hard, other days I don’t even think about it).
I have a brand new favourite toy, my new pink HRM, which I love, even though it rarely gives me that glorious goal of 500 calories – but I can’t blame it, cause it’s sooo pretty lol.
I’m also giving myself and my family, ME! If I kept going the way I was I’m sure I wouldn’t have been around for a long time.
I’m learning to jog and I can’t lie, I am actually enjoying it, I look forward to the days that I jog and I can’t wait till it comes naturally and I can just get up and go out for a jog each morning. I’m aiming towards the Mother’s Day Classic and a local fun run called the Bay to Bay (12km).
Blogging is also something new for me. Even though I’m a huge fan of social media I’ve never actually blogged before.
And last but definitely not least, the support from everyone involved is amazingly fantastic. Every time I can feel a bit of negativity creeping in I go straight to the forums or facebook and it makes me more determined than ever.
