Thats What Makes You Beautiful!

So yes I am a bit of a One Direction fan but hey, I havent heard of anyone who hasnt liked this song wink

So that brings me to my post today. We are almost half way through 12WBT. For some it is your first, others it is more but either way we all have the same feelings. To feel beautiful when we look in the mirror!

I still cringe when I look in the mirror but just last night for the first time in a VERY long time my hubby said out of the blue......your beautiful you know that. He added that he was so proud of how far I have come over the past couple of years. This is all thanks to Michelle and the 12WBT crew. Without them or this program I do not dare to think how I would be looking right now nor how much I would be weighing. Michelle has never given up on me nor has her team. I have good days and bad days but now its more good than bad and that to me shows that I am learning. 

As many of you know I am on my 6th round of 12WBT. I have been a part of the program since the second round EVER back in 2010. I have had many highs, many lows and even times when I just wanted to curl up into a corner and hope that I was forgotten......that doesnt happen in this program. Noone is forgotten about. I am sure there are even a few of you who have got that email asking if you have forgotten to weigh in. Oh yes that email. It is a good time if you have to just JFDI....get on those scales and what will be will be. 

We all have to start somewhere. 

Even I have had to restart again. I am back up to over 77kg since these last 3 weeks have been carb overload! I am not talking junk food either. Just had to put things that were rare in my diet back in just so we could eat. I am talking potatoes, white bread.....I have even had to go to full cream milk. I am however not giving up! The shopping shelves are filling back up again slowly and my diet is getting back on track! Even had a healthy version of tacos last night. YUMMO! Healthy food tastes so much better too wink

So getting back to my original gist of my post. What makes you beautiful? I mean the song says it all.....not knowing you are beautiful makes you beautiful. 

So who is getting back on the wagon with me? What will make you feel beautiful cause I know sitting around feeling like all is lost isnt an answer. I had to diet change through no choice but I do have the choice now to fix the damage that has been done. I also have got the most amazing pressie coming from hubby. He has ordered a treadmill!! Hoping to have it by the end of the week. I am so excited too! I was shocked when he told me. He wanted to surprise me and leave it till it was actually there but he couldnt wait! He is also busily progressing through his PT course. Yay for having my own personal trainer soon but guess what ladies....ill be able to check my PT out and not get in trouble.....hehe wink

Lets do it! WE have just over 6 weeks to really own it and walk our talk. On your own you may struggle but here with your 12WBT family, we CAN do it together.

MWAH! to you all. You are all Beautiful!
