We’re all being judged...



You know THAT look... when someone stares at you and they are judging you from head to toe... and we've probably all given that look to other people too even if we didn't mean to... THAT look... that 'I wonder if they have a mirror in their house?' look ... 'I wonder how she got so fat?' ... 'Imagine waking up like her...' It's something I am so conscious of doing... I've been judged all my life and I'm the worst critic of them all, I'm so hard on myself but some days when I think about it, the people with the judgmental stares aren't really in any position to judge me! They're strangers, people I don't interact with and I certainly wouldn't want to be friends with them... Do they look like Brad Pitt / Kate Moss? Are they the perfect weight/height? Wearing the perfect clothes? I mean if their life is so perfect why are they queueing to get on a tram?! Where's the limo?!

Sometimes I wonder if people realise how hurtful it really is? If they really understand that their behaviour can ruin someones day, that someone like me would feel self conscious all day because of  THAT one look... I often look at people with envy, I'd love to be brave enough to wear that top/those earrings/my hair that way... but that boils down to confidence and that's something I'm still working really hard on... It's even worse when it comes from someone close to you and you KNOW they don't have their perfect life together, in fact you're in a better position than they are, yet they feel the need to judge you! 

Next time someone makes a comment on your body, your clothes, or they look at you like you're some sort of freak who is out of control... Just look back and wonder if they've really got it all worked out... Is it done just to make them feel better about themselves? That says more about their character than their dress size and do you really want to let someone like that ruin your day?

The people who make you feel bad about you, 
haven't got their shit together either just remember that!

Make a decision...


Are you stuck? I'm stuck... I'm losing and gaining the same couple of pounds and staying the same most weeks... and whilst I could write you a list of excuses a mile long... I'm only allowing myself to be stuck... Permission granted! 

Todays decision is simple... DO WHAT WORKS for me ... and that's tracking... Need to write everything down even when it's off plan and get my bottom back into gear... Christmas will come and go (the sooner the better as far as I'm concerned!) and the weeks will pass by... 

If you think about this time next year do you really want to be exactly where you are today?
Make a decision today!

Go alone or go together?



Sometimes it can be very lonely doing this journey all by yourself... If we could get to goal doing it alone, we'd all be there by now! Sometimes you just need a pal who understands that you really do want it, and they get how hard it can be but they'll be your cheer leader and you'll be theirs... 

This week... txt, call, message, Instagram, Facebook, tweet, DM, visit someone who gets you... Make touch with them... it's the hardest time of the year for most of us... Not only is it cold, miserable and darker every day, but the run up to Christmas makes most people throw in the towel and think 'feck it, I'll start again in January!' but by then there could be an extra stone to lose on top of where we are now! Call on someone who's on you side... There's so much online support online too and many of us would be lost without our meetings... We're not on our own doing this... I've pals doing Slimming world, counting calories, macros and it's just as hard for them without the support... life gets in the way and that's a given, the curve balls keep coming... so lets get there and lets get there together!
