    Default anewme's journey to A New Me...

    First I would like to introduce myself. I am a 40 year old, mother of six. When I applied for this challenge I was 108.6kgs; when I got the email saying I was selected I had gone up to 110.0kgs I was feeling really down and was drowning my sorrows in ice cream and chocolate coated peanuts. When I saw that number flash up on the scales I cried big time. How could I do that to myself again? So I started to eat better and get myself ready for Zumba-ing. By Monday I was back to 108. Yay.

    Ok I have thrown away the ice cream and chocolate coated peanuts, brought myself some new threads and shoes all to get ready for the next 8 weeks. So now I just have to wait for the postman to arrive…

    While I am waiting I have discovered exactly how unfit I am. I went away with my husband and baby Daniel this weekend. Our room was on the second floor of the hotel, it had rickety old steps and no elevator. So I had carry loads of stuff up and down those steps. For such little creatures they have a lot big heavy stuff. I was out of breath by the end of it. My husband had to work so he dropped me at shop for 8 hours on Friday and Saturday. I decided to start the ‘a new me’ campaign. Instead of sitting on my bum in café all day, I walked and walked. OMG I was so exhausted by the end of it. The smells from the cafés were torture… I am proud to say I managed to stick to my eating plan. Go me…

    When I announced that I would be doing this challenge on Facebook, my adult Daughter sent me a message saying that she can’t wait to see any video as I am most uncoordinated person she knows. Way to spread the love my darling daughter. So this is going to be a challenge for me. I have never done any formal or informal exercise class.

    Lol at your daughter, aren't family great!
    I have also spread the word on Facebook. Very very scared of being so public about things I usually keep to myself but keeping them in hasn't made them go away so let's try putting it out there!

    You're so brave, putting it on facebook. I feel like if I tell people that I am doing this, they might realise that I am fat (because they have been under the influence of my jedi mind trick and would not have noticed).

    OMG I am the same! Not on FB yet!

    Well done on being brave enough to post the vid on FB! I wish I had that in me!

    It is super scary to put it all out there. I have my husbands big boss on my facebook along with my pastor and all my adult daughters friends. So it will be interesting to say the least. I must learn how to put a pic/video up with posting on facebook first.
