Decided to go to McDonald’s and was really struggling on what to get that was low syns and I remembered they done salads 🥗 I went for a grilled chicken and bacon salad with the balsamic dressing with a Diet Coke 😛 ONLY 3 SYNS❗️I’m actually really proud of myself for going for the salad and not the 24 syn wrap I actually wanted ☺️ and I don’t have the guilt after leaving McDonald’s 🥳 #betterchoices
So, I was going to keep this account fairly anonymous for a while. In all honesty I just felt shame and thought I’d hide away until I become worthy enough to share myself with you. But I’ve changed my mind. If I’m going to share my journey then I think it’s only right that I share it all. I may not be happy with how I look right now but people see my face everyday; it’s not like I can hide away from the world is it! So yeah, it would have been nice at 4 or 5 stone down to say, hey, look how I looked and look at me now. That would have felt good. But I’ve chosen to just accept that this is how I am right now and I won’t be like this forever. And yes, I definitely want my body to be lighter and fitter, but do you know what, this body of mine is pretty awesome. It has grown and birthed 3 humans, 2 of which were via major surgery and then it went on to nourish and grow them some more while they were on the outside. My body alone kept my babies alive and that is pretty awesome! So I am thankful for this body of mine and now I am saying thank you properly, by feeding it better food and looking after it. .
So, this is my introduction to you all. Hi! My name is Charlie, I’m 37 and I am mum to three beautiful boys, wife to a pretty amazing (some of the time 🤣) husband and all round ok human being. I’ve got a very long journey ahead. Around 11 stone to lose, so I’d love for you to join me and support me along the way, while I in turn follow other journeys that inspire me and keep me going ❤️.
