So here is my front
I realise I am not huge or anything. I am at an uncomfortable weight for me. I am in the overweight *BMI section which puts me at risk of numerous things such as diabetes. Add to that my lovely PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) which already puts me at risk for diabetes and you can see I do not need to up my risk by remaining overweight.
Here is a side view. I really didn’t know how to stand and didn’t want my arms covering my delightful tummy bum so I stood like an idiot instead!
And last but not least is the bum shot. This is the one that screams at me. It screams “I’m gonna bust outta these jeans if you even try and move!!!GRRR!” See, my butt is an angry butt coz it is squished into one of the few pairs of pants I have. Poor bottom. Don’t worry, my tummy is screaming too that it is getting crushed when I try to do these jeans up.
Now I realise I am not overly fat and that if I dressed differently I would look much nicer. I already mentioned the diabetes things but add to that my mum and Gran died of cancer (mum was only 37), my pop of a heart attack, my other pop has had a few strokes as has my uncle (mum’s older brother). Given these few family diseases, I don’t think I need to push my luck too far. I’d like to live a healthy life for my daughters, not be killed young when I could have prevented it or have a lower quality of life due to my own mistakes.
Is it going to be easy? No. Am I aiming to be super skinny? No. I would like to be a toned 65kg, which is right in the middle of my BMI. To me that is healthy and what I would like to maintain. I was that when I got married and see no reason I can’t be again. Mind you, I was that weight and lived on a diet of coco pops, cheesecake and Krispy Kremes (yeah, my best friend/flatmate worked at The Cheesecake Shop and my boss’s wife was a high up manager for Krisy Kremes and since my friend was a Uni student and I was an apprentice free food was AWESOME!!)
So really, I shot myself in the foot when I was younger by taking for granted the ability to stay slimmer. I did exercise then, WAY more than I do now. But I was still not a healthy 65kg.
So join me as you see me got from OK to FANTASTIC!!
