Day 229

Tuesday 16th August 2016

For years I have not really looked after myself. I never really took pride in my appearance. I have had health problems and I learnt to live with them. It’s all been because I have always eaten what I wanted – I ignored the consequences. 

It’s amazing the things you learn to live with when you are in denial. Like I have learnt to live with the fact I am overweight for years and said that is how I was made and there is nothing I can do about it. However that is wrong – it is only me who can do something about it. 

All those years of denial are now coming back to haunt me. When I decided that I was going to do something things changed in me. My attitude to food, what it does to my body. I have even taken a bit more pride in my appearance. 

While losing weight I have noticed that I am getting thinner but my stomach is taking a lot longer than the rest of me. I think it’s because of all the years of neglect and when you eat food it settles in the stomach which makes it grow. It’s used to being large and stretched so much that it now won’t go back in a hurry. 


There is one consolation – I could make a good belly dancer. If only I could dance! 

I know my belly is a lot thinner than it used to be. I think I am only noticing the size of it now because everywhere else is looking so much better. I can see my bones through my skin now and Matt says I am looking normal from the back.  It’s only when I turn and you can see my stomach you can see how big I am.

  1. Good luck and well done for the changes so far. I think it is important to stay positive, celebrate every success and never give yourself a hard time for the occasional naughty indulgence. That’s certainly the approach I took (check out my blog).
