Ok so right off the bat let me start by saying actually I couldn’t give a toss about being ‘thin’. It’s just that fat girl gets slightly less fat doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.
Anyhoo. Pud has been at school for a whole week now so I am starting to slowly find my groove again after 7 weeks of summer holiday chaos.
A very brief back story about why I need to be ‘less fat’.
2 years ago I was on a bit of a health kick. I was going to Zumba classes and had myself a cross trainer which I used maybe twice a week on a good week. I was eating more healthy and started attending Slimming world classes. I was doing really well too! I lost close to 2 stone and dropped 2 dress sizes to reach a size 16 for the first time in 6 years!
I celebrated this momentous day by treating myself to a beautiful coat I had been longing for in that coveted size 16.
It was a little snug at first but a couple more weeks and it fitted me perfectly.
I loved my coat and I always got compliments on it whenever I wore it.
Fast forward 6 weeks and I am the proud and happy owner of a positive pregnancy test!
Well since then I’ve not been able to do my beautiful new coat up! It’s been sat in my wardrobe for almost 2 years!
Now it is time though! I’m saying bye bye pizza and cola. Hello again beautiful coat!
Since Pip is a difficult little madam and still refuses a bottle, I am still nursing her a couple of times a day so my plan to do a Clean 9 to give my weight loss a kick start has been put on the back burner for now. In the meantime though I am swapping out my sugary snacks for fruit and doing a LOT more walking!
Having lots of free time in the day means I am getting out and about with Pip to baby groups and activities.
Today was a 2 mile walk to baby ballet class, although I hurt my back on the way so I cheated and got a ride home! Still it’s 2 miles more than I would have done otherwise and it’s all about doing a little bit more each day! One step at a time and all that! 🙂
I’m going to be doing regular updates on here for anyone interested in my journey and I’m always up for a little healthy (literally) competition if you want to join me! Leav eme a note in the comments and we can get healthy together! 🙂
