Weight loss

Say Goodbye Wobbly Belly – You’re Dead Meat!

Losing weight the healthy way

Everyone that didn’t know me thought I was anorexic or bulimic during my teens and right up into my early twenties in fact. I wasn’t. I ate a lot (so many cakes and chocolates too) but I never put on weight. I was a skinny bean I had a bony bum and that’s just the way it was. I remained slim for years, when I was pregnant I didn’t show until I was 6 months and the baby weight just dropped off thanks to the miracle of breast feeding. I didn’t start putting on weight until I hit 30….

I Wanted My Own Pair of Boobs!

Initially I made it a goal of mine to put on a few extra pounds. Being slim meant I had no boobs (Wonderbra’s didn’t even work for me I just had a big gap between boob and the bra!) and I wanted boobs so badly, especially after having them during pregnancy. The problem was I guess my metabolism began slowing down right at the point that I began to eat fatty foods in order to gain weight. I went a bit overboard with the cream in the mash potato and now I am about two dress sizes bigger than what I want to be. Yes the boobs are great (who doesn’t love a good pair of fun bags right?), I can even live with the love handles and a bit of cellulite is normal…but I am now getting the type of wobbly belly I don’t want. I have to hide it in tops, it’s bulging in places I don’t want it to, it’s getting a bit saggy! So now, aged 36, I am going on my first ever diet and health kick!

Crop Tops for the Summer

The reason I am telling you this is to give myself a kick up the backside. As I write I am craving chocolate and it’s only been two days since I had a bar. I have the sweetest tooth, I wake up in the night craving snacks and if there is something sweet in the house you can bet it won’t be there in the morning. My weight loss/health drive challenge is:

  • Aim to weigh nine stone (right now I am ten and a half).
  • One bar of chocolate per week and NO MORE! (I have the shakes already).
  • Exercise more – walking is the exercise I love providing I am not having a panic day, I might also give Yoga a go (at home of course).
  • One sugar in tea, maximum cups of tea per day – two.
  • No processed foods.

So there, it’s on the table. Let’s see how I do shall we? Who’s with me?

    Sooner or later we all have wobbly bits… It seems to me that women don’t have a point of telling their partner they have wobbly bits (Not the obvious ones lol) but if a man dare’s to say such a think to a woman he better RUN cos she’s gonna catch ya!
    We all age.. We all get older.. I guess it’s just something that happens.. Sure there are things you can to help.

    I am like you when it comes to sweet tooth. So if I eat sweets I do more exercise not necessary the gym but a few push ups and press ups at home even my own version of yoga. I have found am losing weight without even trying. Good luck on your diet and stay strong.
