Day 1 - The Beginning

So here I am, back in blog land. I was here years ago when I was also struggling with my weight. I managed to get it under control and then somehow (against my best intentions) lost control again.

At the peak of my weightloss, I lost around 13 kgs which took me down to around 75kgs on average. And I was happy. I could fit comfortably into a size 12 and had boatloads of confidence. Fast forward to today and I weigh in at 88.2 kgs. My highest EVER weight. I got married in early April this year and I weighed around 80kilos due to crash dieting and liquid detoxing. I am not surprised at the massive weight gain in 2 months - I am just disappointed in myself.

My clothes don't fit, I feel like people are looking at me and when I finally got the courage to weigh in last week and saw the dreaded numbers above, I decided I need to take action once and for all. I want to have a baby next year and I don't want to have to worry about my weight then. I want to be able to buy beautiful clothes and just feel great again.

It's going to be hard but I am hoping that this blog will help me be accountable for my actions and my eating. I love food, cooking and eating out and I am hoping that I can continue my 'affair' with food, while losing weight.

I do not want my weight to define me, which at the moment it does. I have a gorgeous husband and we just purchased our first home in February. We have done the renovations and it's finally finished (except for the garden!). My job is pretty decent and flexible. Everything else is going for me, so I am going to sort out the last facet of my life!

This blog won't be purely about weight loss. My love of food will feature alot I hope, as well as our travels and just life in general. I have been reading alot of your blogs anonymously and I will be glad to be able to comment properly now!!
