OK. 2009 has nearly gone. I personally am fed up with looking at my 'not so slim' body in the mirror. I know, at 5'8 1/2" I will never be 'little' or 'slight' but I can defiantly be 2 stone lighter. I am fed up with thinking about it and not actually getting around to doing it. People say 'your tall, you carry it well, that may be so but it is me who sees the naked truth, and only me who can do anything about it.
So that is the first challenge. Join me in loosing some weight. Joining a slimming club is all well and good but that is £6 we could spend on fabric, wool or craft items.
So.......................... It is always easier to loose weight if you do it with someone, a friend. Two of you have already suggested joining me so here is the blog to do it in. Put the £6 a week in a jar and follow this blog http://theperfectchallenge.blogspot.com/
Put random thoughts (your weight if you feel like it - I'll stick mine on there on Friday morning - Hey I have no shame) tips and suggestions. How about e-mailing me a photo, or a post to email@example.com and I'll post it for you, making it a 'keeping track blog'.
The second challenge is to finish one WIP a month (more if you feel like it). Again I shall post a photo. Apart from the rolls of blubber, I am also fed up looking at un-finished things that I have started.
So 2010 is as good as we all make it. I know I want to end this new year thinking that I have done my best, looking forwards instead of backwards (which I have been doing a bit lately) I want to feel better, fitter and lighter. I also want to be tidier - well OK, maybe that is just one challenge too far!!!!
