This Time Next Year #4


It has only been two days since I last posted but I thought I would update you a day or two earlier.

Since I last posted I have worked out that I have lost six pounds since I started this blog series! I am so excited to see what’s going to happen.

I feel different, I don’t know if other people can tell or not yet but i can’t wait until the weight loss is more noticeable.

For years and years, I have always wanted to try and be more health conscious but never been able to stick with it. Too tempted by the doughnuts or the cake! This time it seems to be staying!

It’s a well known fact that I have been rude to family when they’ve suggested going on walks. I have always said that I didn’t want to go but in reality, I did want to! I just felt like I was burdening them to going at snails pace, and I felt like I was being judged. I have realised that I was the one who was judging myself.

There have been some days where I have looked in the mirror and counted the things that I would change, and although I’m trying not to do that anymore, I do catch myself doing it. The list has been quite long over the years and not always limited to weight.

However over these last few days I have noticed that the list is getting smaller, as the waist line shrinks!

I couldn’t be prouder of myself and I hope that i will remember that feeling the next time the scales annoy me!

I recently saw a quote on Instagram which reads-” The woman I was yesterday introduced me to the woman I am today; which makes me excited about meeting the woman I will become tomorrow.” As soon as I saw read that I fell in love with it. It immediately made sense to me. It made me even more determined that all the set backs that I have had already on this path have made me- me!

Today’s update is that I have lost another pound! Yay!!! Go me! Yes, I am aware that I am tooting my own horn, but I don’t care!! I’m doing it Mum and Dad, look at me, I’m doing it!

Most of you will know that I am obsessed with musicals, and recently I have fallen in love with the Waitress Musical with music written by Sara Bareilles.

There is song called ‘What Baking Can Do’ with a lyric which says “so with flour on my hands, I’ll show them all how goddamn happy I am!”

Why is she telling me this? I hear you all cry. I’ve been changing the lyrics to “with weight-loss on my hands, I’ll show them all how goddam happy I am!” It has been so motivating to me going on this journey and with you all too. I have been so much happier since losing those 6 pounds so just you wait and see what happens next!

Once again, thank you so very much for your lovely and kind comments. It means the world to me. It helps me immensely to know that I am not alone!

Please keep sending messages and comments!!

See you soon!!
