Day 2: I’ve always said and thought “I’m happy just as I am”, but you know what – the truth is I’m happier when I’m slimmer. I know this for a fact, I’ve nearly always been what I’d call ‘cuddly’, except a couple of years ago when I dropped about 17 kilo’s and I felt great. Shopping was fun, I had lots of energy and I felt sexy and fabulous. I remember losing the weight was hard work, so much harder than it’s been putting most of it back on over the last couple of years. I want to get it off again!
Why now? There are a number of reasons, the main one’s being my age and future health. I know the older I get, the more difficult it’s going to be to maintain my desired body image. As for my health, touch wood I’ve always been extremely lucky and so far haven’t had any major issues. In fact it’s my grandmother’s 93rd birthday in a few days and she is still going strong, so the gene’s are good (just a little tight at the moment! – well my jeans are!)
Sure, this isn’t going to be simple, but the program I am following, the new brain code to slimming is easy. There are no pills, bars or shakes, no expensive gym costs – it’s just me, the program, my mindset and my body. Oh, and this blog. Writing is part of my plan, and there are forms to keep track of my progress. And I’m working on my mindset, it’s really strong and positive right now (God, I’d be in trouble if it wasn’t this early on) but I know there are going to be times when it falters, and I’m ready for that. Bring it on I say!
So, am I happy right now? Essentially yes. Could I be happier? Absolutely! Will I be happier – you bet I will. What about you, are you as happy as you could be? Sweet dreams my friends, I’ll be back tomorrow xx
