My Epiphany :)

Hi guys,

I wanted to talk about the reasons I want to lose weight and get healthy. It's a good idea to write these down and your goals for the journey. That way at low points (like with everything, you get good days and bad days) you can read them and reflect.
I think most people want to lose weight so they can look and feel better. I'm no different. I want to be confident in what I wear plus how I look and I want my health!
As I've gained weight I've noticed certain things effecting my health such as my feet hurting (hard work carrying an extra load) my hip clicking (very recent and also another push I needed to make a change) and generally feeling tired and crap!
I've spent so long hiding behind my fat that I've never really lived (how cheesy do I sound!) but it's true. Until recently I hid behind tracky bottoms and baggy tops, wore no make up and generally tried to be invisible. Hard to do when you're overweight.
Then I went shopping a few months ago (not a new thing lol) and my mum was at the bare minerals counter in Debenhams and next to them was Urban Decay.
I fell in love with the edgy vibe and the amazing palettes with seriously cool eyeshadow shades!
That was when I had an epiphany. I wanted to make more of an effort, with my weight, my health and with doing my make up and wearing better outfits. Yes I'm fat but do I really need to look like a bag lady? No I don't.
So I bought a few outfits from New Look (they have the inspire range for larger ladies) still loose fitting as I want to feel comfortable but now when I go out I don't feel so scruffy. Lol.
So here I am. I've got a long way to go. Lots to lose in weight but more to gain in confidence, self worth and most of all my health!

Let's do this!



Ps: My lovely brother and his girlfriend got me the Urban Decay Shadowbox and Perversion mascara for Christmas! I love them!!
