    Default Self-doubt - Week 8, Day 2 - Blog 74

    So I was just replying to purple's post about the goals we set ourselves at the beginning of this challenge. Like purple, I've been getting a bit down on myself because I'm probably not going to reach my goal. I mean, I know I'll hit it easily within a week or two of the challenge ending but it's still a bummer.

    What occurred to me while replying to purple though, was that I set that goal not honestly believing I would meet it. At the beginning of this challenge I had no faith in myself or my abilities. I didn't honestly believe that I could lose even 1kg. I was hopeful. I knew the equation of healthy eating + Zumba = weight loss was a sound one and I believed it would work but I didn't believe in me.

    A healthy lifestyle has always been something that has eluded me. I'm a stay at home playing computer games and watching TV kind of girl, not a go out and get some exercise and vitamin D kind of girl! What this challenge and Zumba has done is allow me to become a person who prioritises exercise in their life.

    One final happy note, I realise this morning when I put it on that the skirt I bought the other week was a size 14! I had absolutely no idea I'd picked up a 14 at the store and because it fit, I never looked at the tag! At the beginning of this challenge I was the highest weight I've ever been and bursting out of my size 16 clothes. I really should've been wearing a size 18 but you know how it is mentally when you have to go up to a size you've never been before and you just refuse to do it so you look even worse wearing the next size down to avoid it but it's okay because you didn't have to go up in size?

    Anyway, size 14, woohoo!
