Blogger Challenge - Week 2


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.



  1. You are already getting so many positives from making a change to your lifestyle.... why would you stop! I'm going to re-read this when I wonder why i am doing 12wbt.

  2. You said it well... 12wbt is about reinventing your lifestyle and thus creating permanent change as rather than temporary as in most diet programs (been there, done that, too many times!). Well done for finding so many positives only 2 weeks into 12wbt. Keep up the attitude and keep inspiring with your blog posts! xx
