If Coach Nicole can.....

Sunday, May 03, 2009

I've just been reading that article in which Coach Nicole said she isn't happy enough with her own body image to wear a swimsuit in public.
It made me think...
Is that the main issue for most of us? What we think other people think about us?
Other people may well look at me and think "fat middle-aged woman" - they are right - but I know something they don't!
Tiny bit by tiny bit, that fat woman is getting more exercise and is going to get thinner!
I've quietly slogged through April, walking, swimming, gardening whenever there is time. Today I noticed for the first time that my name is getting nearer the top of one of my team fitness leaderboards! What a boost! And those aren't future calories - each one is already burned off.
Maybe by the end of May I'll be brave enough to weigh myself again - because that is my block - I just can't get on the scales.....

    Who needs scales, you can track progress by your clothes getting looser and how easy it is to cut your toe nails or climb a flight of stairs.
