I have been a big lass since I started to pile on weight at age 7 and I didn't stop. Back in 2005 I joined a gym where I exercised and had a weekly personal trainer. I lost about 20kgs and heaps of inches over the course of almost 2 years.
Then my work circumstances changed and I left the gym and I have since gained the weight back and all those pesky kgs brought friends back with them and so I have put on even more weight.
Now - I am not a big eater. I am not one of these people that eat 2 plates of food - or even large amounts on one plate. My problem is the types of food I eat AND THAT I DON'T MOVE!!
My aim is not become thin - this will not happen and I am realistic. My aim is to send those pesky 20+kgs back to where they were when I stopped going to the gym and to look and feel a bit better.
One of my motivations is I have all of this beautiful fabric and I can image beautiful garments that will look a bit better on me when I lose the weight.
And I have a confession to make..... remember the blog about breaking my fabric fast - well it well and truly broke and I have had a touch of fabric fever since then. And look what was just delivered all the way from the USA:
There are some gorgeous fabrics in these boxes (already opened and drooled over) and I have already allocated them patterns in OneNote. I will still be sewing according to my plan - no use waiting and it is all good practice. But I will be making smaller garments within the year.... How small ... well we shall wait and see.
ANNOUNCEMENT - THIS IS NOT GOING TO TURN INTO A WEIGHT LOSS BLOG!
I WANT TO PUT THIS OUT THERE! Both as a motivation to myself - now that I have announced it I will be able to keep to it better - and also I enjoy seeing the people that I have "met" through their blogs get smaller and I am hoping that I will get the same motivation from others.
Let's see how I go.
