Embarking (Again!) On A Healthier Lifestyle Mission

This morning I’m refamiliarising myself with my A New Weigh programme so that I can commit fully to become a healthier, happier me. (Oh, am I not just a living breathing cliche!)

I pretty much fell off the wagon completely after my initial weight loss earlier this year and have gained about half back… Not ideal.

I have all the excuses and no excuse at all, I knew what I was doing and have felt the effects of the weight creeping back on: effects on my confidence, energy, general life focus, and in my new clothes of course!

I know there are so many people blogging about their health/diet/exercise endeavours at the moment and so many other (jealous?) people are being negative and judgey about it all, but I really think it’s great that there’s such a big collective of like-minded people who are trying to better their lives through a healthier lifestyle, no matter what route they take to do so.

I like to share my story for a purely selfish reason – it makes me feel accountable if I tell everyone I’m going to do it, it motivates and encourages me to connect with those who might be going through similar experiences and with people who support me.

My end goal is more about changing the way I think + my relationship with food than it is about changing my body – so here I go again, wish me luck!

    Good luck Andrea!
    And I agree with you, I’ve also been blogging my health/weight loss journey as I find it keeps me accountable and inspires others along the way so the eye rollers can just deal!
