Ok... I admit I am really nervous about doing this and I should issue a viewer discretion WARNING! Some people may find the following images disturbing and/or distressing. I know I do.
Monday 16th April.
Height: 5 foot
Weight: 60.7kg (insert sad face here)
Arms: 12.5" - 31cm
Chest: 37" - 94.5cm
Waist: 32" - 81.7cm
Belly: 34" - 86.9cm
Hips: 39" - 99.6cm
Thighs: 23" - 59cm
My journey begins with the "6 Weeks to Sexy - the ultimate body transformation" training program run by Ministry of Wellbeing. They have given me a meal plan and exercise regime to follow which is good since the one thing I've never been good at is calorie counting. Obviously I can't give too much away since it's privy to those who do the program.
Today I did commando type exercises and it took me 25mins to complete them. My breathing was laboured, blood felt like it was rushing to my head and my face was hot. I kept having to pause for 45second intervals to get my breathing under control. Some times I just lay down and rested because I needed to. On Wednesday I repeat the exercises and see if I can beat today's time.
I didn't always have issues with my weight. In the photo above I'm around 27 years of age and approximately 45-48kg and size 8. I kept fit by dancing and I'd always promised myself I'd never let myself go. Well that was many moons ago, pre marriage, pre my 2nd and 3rd babies. [By the way the above pic is what I'm hoping to achieve as an 'after' photo or thereabouts]. Please start saying your prayers for me!!
And this is me now. 60kg and size 10-12 (depending on the shop sizing). All I can say is 'oh dear'! It depresses me no end that I'm no longer in good shape yet I always told myself it could be worse. That only caused me to put off the inevitable and finally get myself back IN SHAPE!
Day 1. 41 days to go... wish me luck.
