For the first time in my life, I am considering slimming down. I've never been overweight or needed to watch what I eat until last year. Why this happened I am not 100% because my diet has not changed, I eat the same things (a healthy diet), maybe I drink far too much fizzy and wine - but I blame the mirena coil I had fitted which I believe could have started the change in my body. Or it could be because I am middle age now, on the wrong side of 30. Or maybe (probably) I am in denial? I am not sure. But, one thing for sure, I am determined to slim down and tone up.
At first, I enjoyed that I started to fill out a bit, I was able to fit comfortably in my size without having to wear a belt, and all of a sudden my boobs started to fill out - this was the best part. I went from having small chest, to having breasts. But it didn't stop, the weight just keeps creeping up and a couple of months ago, I found that I couldn't fit in my size anymore, I had to buy the next size up in jeans. But, my belly is what gets me down, it's the one thing I don't like about the weight gain, I look pregnant at times, and I don't feel comfortable with it.
I've made some positive changes recently. Last year I started yoga, which has done me and my body the world of good, and most recently I started on addition exercise (7-minute works outs and in skipping). But, the main change I now need to focus on is my diet and what I am eating. I drink more water and I've cut back on drinking fizzy drinks, but now the focus needs to be what foods I eat.
So I find I am a new size but at the end of the day, I don't mind what size I am, as long as I am toned up and healthy, which I am not. I need to get rid of the bulges and watch more closely the calories I am consuming.
