Home / Diabetes / Happier Fitter Healthier – My Turn! Starting Weigh and Measure


So… I’m doing my programme I promote, for myself.

I said yesterday on my Fatty Goes Bye Bye page, I’m fantastic at helping others get to where they want to go, and to improve their lifestyles, but I am forever neglecting my own health, fitness, weight… everything really.

So from tomorrow, I am taking part in my own programme. I always am conscious of trying to follow it, but it’s not the same as actually printing out the plan, and following it daily.

I agree with all the Body Positive people who say it doesn’t matter what you weigh… to an extent…. It doesn’t, if you are happy, you love yourself and it is not affecting your health or physical activity. If it IS, then.. maybe it’s time to do something about it.

That’s the case for me. I wouldn’t care about my size if it weren’t for the fact that I have no energy, my sleep is utter SHIT, my body aches and I’m always grumpy. No one likes grumpy mummy. Oh, and did I mention Pre Diabetes? Yeah, that’s another awesome reason to get back on track.

I know my programme works. You only have to look at the testimonials of people who have completed it and stuck with it, to see that it works. And it’s an all over thing – not just weight loss.

So here I am. Ready for 12 weeks of finally putting myself first (or at least closer to the top of the list)

So today I did my weight and measurements. Here they are, and they will be updated weekly (weight) and 4 weekly (measurements), so that everyone can watch and make sure I stick with this. I was doing so well, and then Winter happened.

Weight – 92.3kg

Resting Heart Rate – Average 75bpm (used to be 96)

Bust – 116cm

Waist – 95cm

Belly Button – 109cm

Butt – 123cm

Upper Thigh – 73.5cm

Calf – 40.5cm

Upper Arm – 34.5cm

Ironically, I am larger than most of the ladies that do my programme, but you know what? They get results, regardless of what I look like. We are all on our own journey, and that is cool.

So wish me luck. I’m actually quite nervous, but am determined to stick with it.

I’m a bit of a fruit loop, when I let myself be one!
