Positive Beauty Fitness: A Few Words from Me

Yes, I know this is sort of my third post of today, but hey, two of them weren't exactly proper blog posts :)

Anyone who follows me on Twitter will know that I was deliberating whether or not I should separate all the stuff relating to fitness into a new blog. Initially, I decided that I would. But, I don't know if you've ever run several blogs, but it really is hard word. Baring in mind, that I'm already running this one, and my entertainment one, as well as a business one that gets incredibly neglected, I set one up, and then decided that I would probably neglect it if I continued, so I've opted to keep everything here. Plus, a few of you expressed that you'd prefer me to leave it here, so that's what I'm deciding to do :)

Losing weight is not necessarily about being "slim" or "perfect", it's about looking and feeling good about yourself, and about being HEALTHY. Healthy is not the same thing for everyone. Some of us are tall, some of us are short, some of us are curvy, some of us are slimmer built. That is just a fact of life, and a fact that the media, for some unknown reason, doesn't want to encourage us to remember.

This is my my journey to lose some weight, for the sake of my health as well as personal happiness. I hope that a few others will join me on it :)

I spent a long time trying to decide whether to share my weight on here, but I've decided that I'm going to shame myself and confess. I'm also going to confess that I'm not the heaviest, right now, that I've ever been, I've been just under a stone heavier than this, a fact that I'm not proud of.

I hope that by admitting how much I weigh, and by being completely honest, I will help other women to stand up and make a change in their lives. That change might not be to lose as much weight as I need to, it might not even be to lose weight at all. The most important thing is that today, you take those first steps to a happier life. Nothing is more important in life than happiness.

So, here goes:

Starting Weight: 16st 9lbs (I told you it wasn't pretty.

Target Weight: 13st

My target weight is the weight that I need to reach, in order to no longer by considered "obese", but instead "overweight". I remember the last time I was at that weight, and I miss it!!

I also want to add that, yes I am fat. Negative comments are not necessary, and will be removed. I hate to sound harsh, but the whole point of this blog was to be supportive.

  1. You have done the hardest part by writing down what you weigh. Its never easy admitting it. I would love to go to the doctors and them not blame any aches or pains I have on the fact that i'm obese. Yes I know it isn't healthy in there eyes but I can't help but think it's a cop out. I always try to aim for a healthy weight myself, I wish you all the luck in the world. Catherine xx
