Fight Fit Friday | A Journey to Body Confidence

Friday, September 19, 2014

Body confidence is something I really struggle with I have tried to embrace the size I am and love the fact that others my size are happy with their bodies but because of my height I feel a little like a weeble at the moment. 

I have done quick fix diets in the past for events or just to feel good about myself but like all fad diets you end up putting the weight back on.  This time I have promised myself I will do it through good old exercise. My diet isn't that bad anyway everything I cook I do from scratch I never buy Microwave meals (I dont even have a microwave... shock horror) and don't that often use jarred sauces. Don't get me wrong I do have the occasional take away and go out once a week for a curry but never opt for nann bread and Chips. 

I have lots of events to now to keep me focused so hopefully I now should be on the Journey to body confidence and think by documenting my progress in a weekly post it will help me on the way. 

So here are my starting Stats 
Height - 5ft 1 
Weight - 9st13
Size 10 top 12 bottom 

Weight - 8st 3
Size - a toned  10

I think the below photo (Cringe) shows my problem areas perfectly. This is a photo recently took at Tough Mudder and you can see how out of proportion my thighs and hips are with the rest of my body. This really knocks my confidence and find it difficult to wear different types of clothes opting for Skater dresses all the time. The Butt jokes don't help too. 

So here we go ... Wish me luck 

My list of events to keep me motivated 
October 21st - Me and Simon been together  5 years
October 31st - Halloween night out in a cat suit type costume ( so scared by this)
Christmas - work nights out etc 
Valentines day - Bridesmaid at my cousins wedding in a fitted Satin dress 

If they wont keep me motivated Im doomed. 

I will post weekly my results what I have done in terms of exercise and maybe a healthy recipe or snack I have enjoyed that week. 
If you have any weekly progress posts or motivation post please leave me the link below I need all the help I can get.
