Ok, I have kept this blog relatively neutral, with very little information about myself. I guess that was because I had not quite come to terms with the fact that it’s perfectly ok to be overweight as long as you do something about it. I was embarrassed that it had come to this and that I let myself go so much, but now I have realised that the sooner I accept me for me the faster I can get on with things. So here is a little about me.
I am a single mother of three (18,13 and 9), I have moved to England from Germany almost seven years ago. I have always been “well built” but never been seriously overweight until I became a teenager. I have never been taught about healthy eating so it’s taken me a while to catch on and even longer to actually act on my gained knowledge.
Besides constantly trying to lose weight, I like doing crafty stuff like knitting, crochet and now I am trying to get into sewing, which is proving as fiddly as I remember it from home economics classes in school.
My greatest ambitions in life? I have many! I’d love to be able to run, so far I have been too heavy to run as I really don’t fancy damaging my knees, plus i am out of breath after 30 seconds lol, I also would love to be able to play the guitar. I can play some simple tunes and chords but nothing fancy just yet (I blame my fat fingers). But I guess most of all I’d like to be able to live a healthy and fulfilled life, maybe even with a nice man by my side, but that is an added bonus, as life can be fun without that certain someone too.
