Make a Wishbomb

Ok it's time to get rid of the baby weight (and the weight I put on before I got pregnant!).

I really want to be 9 stone again - the same weight I was when I first met my lovely hubby three and a half years ago. I was running regularly at the time, went out dancing a lot and didn't have quite so much of a chocolate addiction. So, I know I need to add much more activity into my life and rein in my sweet tooth.

Unfortunately, my weak ankles and fallen arches do not make me a great candidate for running. Since I've stopped running my back is so much better. Unfortunately I am so much podgier too. Perhaps some fast walking with the buggy will do the trick..although my ankle is still not good. I went over on it again four days ago - and this time dropped Alicia.

How stupid of me to be holding her again. Well, my ankle was feeling much better and I was wearing a support, and I was doing the short walk across the road to accompany Ella from my car to her school. It didn't seem worth it to pop the baby in the buggy. I have truly learned my lesson.

Anyhow, I digress. I completely subscribe to Stephen Covey's philosophy “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.” It's the only way to get anything done. I tend to have a million and one goals, plans and dream whizzing through my head and bumping into a hundred and one items on my mental 'to do' list. I'm not sure that will ever change, but as from today I am making a firm commitment to keep weight loss as my main priority until I am 9 stone once again.

To this end, I have logged my goal (to be 9 stone by 1st July 2011) on wishbomb I'd love your support and encouragement. It will really help me stay focused on my goal. Visit Wishbomb a search for me, 'Anna Higgs'. I think you need to register first (it's free). Maybe you want to start a goal of your own on Wishbomb? After all, they do say 'what gets measured gets done'.

Wish me luck! Any weight loss, exercise tips etc gratefully received.

Good luck!

Take it slowly and try not to beat yourself up if you fall off the wagon from time to time

And have you tried those woobly trainers / fit flops that make you work a bit harder? Core for your core, good for exercise if you have poorly bits

Hey Anna, are you a member of a gym? I go to a few classes a week at Henley leisure center if you want to join me...

Just wondering how're you've been getting on? Its just a few days more than a month away from your target....
I decided I needed to lose the baby weight too and even wrote a blog post about it:
BEFORE realising I was already about 6 weeks pregnant again. Ha ha ha... So I'm GAINING weight again and will just have to be extra determined once the new baba arrives. All the best ;-)
