Well Here Goes...

Here goes nothing!
This is my first time blogging, so you'll have to bear with me.
I'm just embarking on what I hope to be a life-changing adventure. Michelle Bridge's 12 Week Body Transformation (or 12WBT). One of the challenges is to blog about the journey to a healthier me. So here I am!
I have been overweight for a VERY long time! I have struggled, and struggled to be a healthy person in a healthy weight range. I have tried, and failed, many different weight loss "diets". So how is this going to be different for me this time? This program is about changing how I think and feel about myself, as well as what I eat and how much I exercise. I have the enormous unfailing support of my beautiful husband, and as well as that, my sisters and auntie are going on the journey with me. Together we are going to be a force to be reckoned with! We are going to do this!
The actual 12 weeks starts on 13th May, so I have some time to start getting my head in the right space, as well as undertake the Pre-Season tasks that are being set for me. Working out what my goals are, and how to work through (and verbalise) all of my usual excuses has been interesting, especially as I had to actually write down every excuse that I could come up with for not doing this, or the training I need to do to succeed. My favourite is that I'm too tired. Now seeing as I work almost full-time night shift I personally think that I am entitled to be tired. But now I'm going to have to work through that and admit that if I was leaner and fitter then maybe I would cope better and not be as tired.
I am committing to this program and will be reporting back here regularly to update how I'm going.

Wish me luck!


  1. Congratulations and I hope we can all do more than our best effort with the 12WBT. I am looking forward to making a new me !!!!!

  2. I find using a Blog gives me an opportunity to express myself without the need to experience people's body language cues. I look forward to hearing about your journey. You Go Girl!
