Today is my last day here!!! I am really really going to miss this group. I joined up for 6 months and it will be odd not checking in on what is going on and having your support. When I started I wrote down 5 goals which were (in order of importance):
To look more atheletic
Have a more positive attitude through feeling healthier
Increase energy through having better functional health
Invest in new clothes for a new body
Reach 70Kg in Dec 1st!
I was 84kg when I started and now I am 75kg. But I am happy with that as everything else has changed with my body and mind.
When I started I couldn’t possibly imagine that I could work out 4 times a week with 2 young kids.
I had put on so much weight with each pregnancy, I felt awful.
I was still wearing my pregnancy clothes a year after giving birth and I thought the first thing that anyone would ever think when meeting me was “fatty”.
I had zero time for me and put myself last out of everyone. I was going to the doctor with stomach issues which I now know was because I wasn’t eating the way my body needs to be fed.
In October I went a bought myself some new clothes and now I am fitting into clothes that had been stored in boxes for the last 4 years.
For me my biggest achievement is feeling athletic. I love being in my gym stuff. I love my thighs. I love feeling strong.
Most importantly I managed to carve out some time for myself to exercise.
I came home from a long walk the other day and my husband said “you are always so happy when you’ve had some exercise” and I was. Everything felt good.
I feel so much more confident – I never worry about what people think about my shape and size because I know I am trying my best and I’m happy with what I see in the mirror – for once in my life!
Anyway I could blether on for ages. I’ve been telling everyone about LTL and I hope some people join up so I can come back haha!
Thank you. xxx
