Happy New Year!!!
As I embark on 2017 I have set myself some challenges and goals that I want to achieve, not just in 2017 but throughout the year. As time goes on I will share these with you and I have some exciting announcements coming as well.
My first, and primary goal is around me personally. During my whole life I have never been what you would call small. I have always been overweight. At school I was always last to be picked for some sports and always number 1 on the list a tight head prop in rugby. All through my life I have longed to be slimmer so I can buy nicer clothes, and look back on my holiday photos and enjoy looking at them. Please don’t think this is a moan as I know I only have myself to blame. I truly know that.
Well this year it changes…
I am going to lose weight and I am going to improve my fitness. During 2016 I have found a love of writing and i am planning to document my weight loss here on my website and on my You Tube channel in a series of video blogs. I am going to post a starting weight tomorrow and I am going to do it honestly as, simply, I don’t feel I can do it on my own.
I guess the place to start is admitting where I am, the problem is, and I am embarrassed to say, is that I just don’t know. I scales we have wont go high enough, so tomorrow I am off to the gym to find out.
It is impossible to put into words how I feel about myself. I am so lucky to have the lady in the photo above in my life and I want to do this, not only for myself but for her and my daughters. If I am being honest, and I write this whilst holding back tears, if I don’t do this, I am scared I may not live the dreams sam and I have planned, or see my kids grow up.
Today we came back from a week away at Caravan where we had a great time with some special friends but the hard work starts tomorrow.
Until Next Time….
