Well I’ve just had one of those lightbulb moments and not in a good way :( For ages now I’ve convinced myself that my weight gain really wasn’t big a deal and I”m a mum who works and does so many other thing for other people that I just ‘don’t get time’ once I keep the house running and cook etc. So anyway had a big party for my birthday on the weekend and had a friend there who is an amazing photographer so he just shot casual shots all night. He sent them to me the other night and there it was, my light bulb moment :( I ended up spending most of last night in tears because I was so ashamed of how I’d let myself get. This wasn’t healthy, this wasn’t good for my kids or me or my relationship. So here it is for the whole world to see so that I can get my motivation to do this. I WILL get healthier, I WILL get fit and I WILL feel better about myself. I deserve this and so does my husband and kids. Thanks for listening x
