Do you ever get that feeling where you look at yourself in the mirror and just see a lump?
Well that's how I feel right now. I wouldn't particularly call myself fat, but I'm chubby. I have bingo wing arms, a fat ass and an extra tyre around the waist. According to my BMI I'm not overweight. (Well according to the BMI reading Boots gave me, I am overweight - I'm also only 4ft9in apparently) I may be short but I'm not that short.
Which brings me to my next point. When I tell people my weight (it's normal to tell people right?) I always get the same comments. "That's NOTHING!" "That's no weight at all!" "If you lose any more you'll be anorexic!" Okay, let me stop you right there. Maybe my weight isn't a lot to YOU, but please bare in mind I am only 5 foot tall. If you were 5ft9 and my weight, then yes you would be highly underweight. But for my height, it makes me chubby. So please, keep all comments to yourself.
Basically what I'm trying to say, is I'm going on a diet. Well I have started already.
I've downloaded the MyFitnessPal and Pedometer apps to my phone, I've cut out all the fizzy drinks, sweets and chocolate and I'm making sure I walk as much as possible. I've been doing this now for about a week, but I only weighed myself for the first time yesterday so I've no clue if I've lost any weight yet. Doubtful to be honest, I haven't really done much exercise. I promised Ross's Mum I'd be back doing Zumba with her again but haven't actually made a session so far. Including tomorrows because my brother is coming round for a catch up and a cheeky bottle of wine *oops!*
I've dieted before and it's gone well. So long as my mind is set on losing weight, I can do it. I'm not so great at the exercise part, after a long day of looking after Princess I usually don't feel like jogging/running/dancing. Although I suppose chasing a toddler round all day is pretty good exercise in itself.
*Makes note to get her on the trampoline tomorrow*
