Weight vs Dress Size

Start of January means two things its a new year for new starts and everyone goes on a diet.

In my blog Dear 2017, I said I wanted to exercise and to get fit. I’m not doing it as a quick fix diet but a healthy living change.

Another thing been said in work, on blogs, Twitter, radio and television shows is weight goals. Now I couldn’t tell you, how much i weigh. I have a guesstimate idea but I’ve not weighed myself for a whilst.

Years ago I got completely obsessed and that’s why I’m not bothered. I don’t want to become obsessed or it getting into my line of thought day in day out. I know what your thinking, and I’ll openly admit it now. I was once too obsessed with my weight and I weighed myself each day up to three times. If I wasn’t happy I would not eat the next day or be sick. Hard to imagine now as I love food, it does creep in but at the point I can control it. I learnt my lesson.

To me today I now feel when losing weight I believe it’s all about the way you feel. That’s why dress size is more important to me. If I can get into a top or dress I feel more proud / happy about it. I think for me weight doesn’t matter. I know I’m overweight and it’s causing problems.

Thare why this year I’m setting myself a goal to compete in a half marathon and to get to the dress size of a comfortable size 16. When I first moved down south in August 2015 to now I’ve gone from a size 24 to a size 18 comfortably.

My biggest worry is that I lose my curves, boobs and butt. I’m proud of my curves. I’m proud of how far I have come. I know I will get there. It just takes time.

There you go a me goal explained and why I’m not bothered about my weight number but more concerned about my clothing size.

Me at my happiest. Me today.
