Reasons to Diet #13 - Lazing on the sofa won't make me bikini ready

Number 13:
Another reason to stick to the diet - lying on the sofa won't make me bikini ready!! And yet I am having one of those days when that is all I want to do.

I just want to put my head in those cushions, lay back, still a film on and be done with it. But I can't. Well, I could, but then there would be no point when I am looking back on holiday in beating myself up and feeling fat. If I choose that option, I deserve to look crap on the beach.



So, reason number 13 is that lying on the sofa will not make me bikini ready. So that has to be a start to get me up and active today and stay away from the chocolates!! :)

Reasons to Diet #12 - Cheekbones




Number 12:

Reasons to stick to my diet and exercise plan number 12 is that I want to see my cheekbones again. I am very lucky to possess good bone structure - I have been told many times.

Many times that is, when you can actually see them, unlike now!! My face is the first place weight seems to go from when I lose it. Unfortunately, its also the first place that it goes back on, which is what I am rocking or sadly not, at the moment.

So, another reason is to rediscover them bones them bones them dry bones. Cheekbones that it is :)

Reasons to Diet #11 - Toned Pins



Number 11:

I have never been one of those women that throws on a pair of shorts in summer. At a push, I will don a pair on holiday where noone I know is likely to see me but I don't have the pins for shorty shorts.

I would love to have toned pins so that I can - so that's motivation to get the weight off, plus exercise and eat healthily = toned pins :)

Reasons to Diet #10 - I want a trim middle



Number 10:

As a woman, and turned 41, the area around my middle is a problem. Always has been if I'm brutally honest, but now it bugs me more than ever!!

So, my reason to diet and exercise is this - I want that middle trimmed down and not bulging over the top of my waistbands!!

Its also a reason to do a lot of abs. :)

Reasons to Diet #9 - Reaching Goal Weight




Number 9:

I want to get under the stone mark. I am sick of almost reaching goal, then never quite getting under that stone mark!!!! I never actually reach the goal, as getting under one particular stone just never quite happens.

I have quite a bit of weight to lose, and I have done so many times before, but I always hit the same point and can never get below it.

So my reason to Diet Number 9 is to actually reach goal weight.

Reasons to Diet #8 - I Am Too Hot



Number 8 :

When I am overweight in the summer when its warm, it makes me feel even more hot and uncomfortable. I lose weight to go on holiday abroad, and it feels so good being able to wear bikini's, shorts and skirts.

Unfortunately, when I get home to the UK, I gain weight and then when it gets warm here, I am not able to wear my summer clothes. This is ridiculous. So I am changing the pattern this year and I am going to be slim for the summer here for once!!!

I want to be cool, and look cool, not hot and uncomfortable!!!

Reasons to Diet #7 - Mirror Issues



Number 7:

Ok so number 7 is a bit different. This reason is a bit of a phobia I seem to have developed. I have a real issue with facing the mirrors at the gym. When I am working certain exercises, I am supposed to check my technique in the mirror. Not me, no way, never!! I will face the other way, or if I have no choice, I will look anywhere but at that damn mirror!!

In general mirrors are becoming a problem. I used to love getting ready to go out whereas now its an ordeal. Finally squeezing into something to "make do" then facing the inevitable disappointment in my reflection is dismal to say the least.

So reason number 7 for sticking to my diet is to reach a weight where I am comfortable seeing myself in the mirror.

Reasons to Diet #6 - Be Noticed for the Right Reasons




Number 6:

I want to be noticed for the right reasons!! I am fed up of walking into bars, restaurants, offices and feeling eyes on me - for all the wrong reasons! I want to be the person that gets looks in a good way. So that is my reason number 6!!

Reasons to Diet #5 - Confidence





Number 5

Number 5 on my list of reasons to stick to my diet is to have more confidence. When I gain weight, I feel self conscious, and horrible, and grumpy.

When I lose some weight, I have more confidence, I feel happier and better. So that's reason number 5!

Reasons to Diet #4 - Look Good at Work

Working 9 to 5


Number 4

My reason number 4 for sticking to my diet is to look good at work. I am fed up of wearing the same old clothes every day. I want to be able to wear what I want to wear, not just black and grey.

I want to be more stylish, more groomed, more put together. So my fourth reason is to look good at work.

Reasons to Diet #3 - Fit in my Clothes


Number 3

Reason number 3 to stick to my diet: To fit into all those lovely clothes in my wardrobe!!

I have many items in my wardrobe that I can't currently wear. Some are mere pounds away from fitting, some I can barely get up to my knees!! Some do fit, but look awful because they fit in all the wrong places!!

It would be lovely to open my wardrobe and just be able to select an item, knowing it will fit me. It would make packing for holiday a pleasure, not a challenge!!

Reasons to Diet #2 - I want to be a Size 10/12


Number 2


#Reason No 2 - I want to be a Size 10/12

My intention to think of a reason every day to stick to my diet. 

If I can keep this thought in mind for each whole day, I hope it will be enough to keep me motivated and inspired.

Reason Number 2 is that I have reached a Size 12 once or twice, but never maintained it, and I need to be a bit smaller still. So size 10/12 is the goal.

        What was the first song you remember loving?

        My other half's daughter asked me what sort of music I liked when I was young. When I stopped sobbing (when i realised how many years)  I thought about it.

        Here are my top 10 songs from when I was mainly in single digits:

        • Summer Nights (yes from Grease!)
        • NKOTB - The Right Stuff
        • Karma Chameleon - Culture Club
        • Every Breath She Takes - The Police
        • Buffalo Stance - Neneh Cherry
        • How Soon is Now - The Smiths
        • Push It - Salt N Pepa
        • Get into The Groove - Madonna
        • The Boys of Summer - Don Henley
        • True - Spandau Ballet
        Actually not the most embarrassing list (bar the odd one in there!). It was quite fun thinking back to come up with my top 10. 

        So what was the first song you really remember loving, and what is your top 10?
