A Big Secret

Today I would like to take the opportunity to use my time with you to make a confession. Its a horrid confession and if I were you I would navigate off this page right now and pretend that you were never here.

If you do stay, then please be warned that I will not be held responsible for nightmares that may follow after you read this entry, or any urges you may have to make similar confessions either in the comments or on your own blogs.

Right now that the truly hardcore readers are here I can make this confession.

My name is Pippa and I am overweight. In fact I am overweight by over eight stone, that's over 112lbs, or to put in a more scary way there is currently over 43% of me that shouldn't be here.

Phew, glad I got that out. But I can hear you asking me questions;

Eight stone? How the heck did you get that fat? Don't you watch your weight? To be honest I don't know. I guess that it is easier to eat chocolate than it is go and do some exercise. Don't get me wrong I have been on diets and healthy eating plans over the years and I have lost weight, but it then slowly creeps back on and brings its friends.

Does telling you make me feel better? No, it doesn't I feel ashamed for making such a confession but I know that if I don't stop slowly killing myself with food that this will never get better

Do I think that by admitting to you all that I need to do something about my weight I will actually do something about my weight? Yes, I do. And the following is why.

Every Monday I am going to weigh myself and then lay out my meal plan for the next week here and my weight and anything else that I feel you might be interested in or I should tell you!

Now just before I do I need to explain that exercise at the moment with Top Ender not being at school is a little hard and so I am only doing an hours exercise a day by following my Wii game "My Fitness Coach" and of course chasing around Top Ender and Baby Boy! I also do weights for ten to fifteen minutes a day.

Right back to the plan

Meal Plan

Breakfast: Bowl of Bran Flakes with semi-skimmed Milk and a slice of toast
Lunch: Sandwich with fruit or left overs from the night before.

Monday: Chicken pieces with Vegetables and Mash
Tuesday: Fish fingers and Home made oven chips
Wednesday: Turkey and rice in Chinese Five Spice Sauce
Thursday: Sausage Pie and beans
Friday: Pasta with Pesto
Saturday: Home made Chicken Soup
Sunday: Ratatouille

So Today I weight 19st and 4lbs and hopefully soon I won't.
