First Day

Feeling motivated today!  Have decided on porridge, a shake and pasta as my 3 Exante Total Solution meals today.  Still in bed so need the motivation to get up first.... Watch this space....

True... #timetodiet #Exante

And so it begins...

End of 2013.  I can't say I won't be glad to see the back of this year.  It has been full of ups and downs to say the least.  Onwards and upwards for 2014:  this will be my year! 
My biggest goal is to lose weight.  I want to do this for a number of reasons.

  1. Mainly to regain my self-confidence that being overweight has robbed me of.  Time to feel good about myself.
  2. Improve my very poor levels of fitness... Which in turn leads to
  3. Health-  my weight has made me suffer from abscesses, a hormone imbalance and a pseudo-tumour.  All of these will be improved by weight loss.
  4. Marriage- I am currently engaged, but won't commit to a marriage ceremony until I feel better about myself.
  5. Fertility - I want children very soon and this will not happen at my current weight.
  6. Clothes- I want to be able to fit into and look good in fashionable clothes.  I do not want to be forever in stretchy materials!!!!
  7. Holiday- I want to feel confident about fitting in a plane seat without bulging over the sides!  I want to look reasonably ok in swimwear.  I don't want to obsess about what people may be thinking about me!
It actually feels good just to share these.  

I am restarting Exante diet tomorrow.  I have done 2 weeks before in which I lost over a stone.  Time to kick ass for real!!!!!

I ultimately need to lose 8 stone to get me into the normal BMI bracket.  Wish me luck!!!!
