So here I am. Overweight. Still carrying all those extra
tonnes pounds I put on through pregnancies. Feeling sluggish and unhappy with the way I look and feel. Feeling ashamed of myself for letting things get this far. Feeling guilty for all the crap I ate in my first pregnancy which saw me pile on just over 3 stone (42lbs) and most of which I am still carrying 9 years later.
On August 2nd 2014 I will take to the sky for the 2nd time as I jump out of a plane in Memory of Matilda Mae and raising money for The Lullaby Trust.
Last year I felt uncomfortable. I struggled to pull my legs up and lets face it, the extra weight didn’t help.
I know I need to lose the weight. I have tried on numerous occasions, but I get bored. I get fed up of not
shoving my face with cake having my favourite foods. So I give up and become an even bigger failure.
I don’t want to go on an extreme diet – that’s not teaching my girls anything good, but I want to change the way I eat. I want to eat more healthy foods and be within a healthy weight range for my height.
I am currently 160lbs at just under 5 foot 4 inches tall. My goal weight is 120lbs.
I want to lose those 40 oh so stubborn pounds before we skydive, in 20 weeks time! That means I need to lose 2lbs a week!
- Eat better foods – Cut down on the carbs, eat better proteins, fruits and vegetables. Snack on nuts instead of cake.
- Drink more water – water in tea doesn’t count.
more– a one hour session of PT at Physio is not enough! Start some classes, swimming, running etc.
- Walk more – try to walk more instead of taking the car.
- Start Weight: 160lbs
- Target Weight: 120lbs
- Total Target Weight Loss: 40lbs
- Start Waist Measurement: 39.4 inches
So what do you reckon? Can it be done? Will you support me so I don’t fall at the first hurdle?
