Florida Dreams


Hi all today I am starting my exante ! Its 11.40 am and I am already hungry but my shakes havent been delivered yet, just had a message to say they will be here in 2 hours.
So I am going to have some more water and try to drink 2 liters today then try to drink more each day.
I already drink quite a lot a day but mostly fizzy pop so its going to be hard switching to water but I feel quite motivated today.

I am sick of been overweight my BMI is 41 so I have a lot to lose. We are planning a holiday to Florida later this year and I so want to be slim for it and of course healthy for myself too.

I went to Florida in January 2012 with my husband and three kids and spent most of the time exhausted carrying around all this extra weight round the parks was hard work, my seat belt wouldnt fasten going out on the plane :( and I felt uncomfortable, self consious and miserable.

This time I want to fasten the seat belt with ease, I want to be able to go on any ride with the kids and not have to worry about if I will fit in the seats etc..

Most of all I look forward to not feeling tired and having my joints ache all the time, I look forward to been able to move aorund more easily and not getting short of breath or tired.

I cannot wait to be able to go shopping for clothes and not have to go to the back of the rack all the time or to shop in an ordinary store that isnt plus size would be super.

I am sick of people judging my weight I feel the other mums at school look down on me, they make assumptions that I must be lazy because I am fat

:( ..It makes me unhappy ...oh well I hope my shakes come soon, going to grab another water and try to keep busy today already took the dog out for a walk and tidied up...
