Mind Over Matter

This is the last Mumentum post before CyberMummy and I feel that there have been some big changes over the past few weeks since linking up with these lovely ladies.

This week I am sharing with you what I feel I have realised about myself so far.

It's all in my head.

I know exactly what I need to do to lose my mum tum (admittedly, I had mine pre JC so I can't blame him!) but I can't do it because my head is all over the place.

I can't be consistent and stick to anything long term. I am all about the latest fad. This doesn't just apply to dieting it applies to my whole existence. It's not just the food and activity that need to change, it's me.

I am on a bit of a journey at the moment because I am working on figuring out who I am and who I want to be.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not all bad. I have some great attributes and I don't want to change everything about myself. I just want to become a person who is calm, positive, healthy, with secure self esteem, confident, full of life and well rounded.

Before, I always focused on what I didn't want to be and if I looked towards my target it was always just size related but it is so much more than that.I am going to be my own Guru and I have a few ideas about how to set about altering my life and achieving the positive changes  I so desperately want to achieve. I might share those next week because I am still thinking them through. I am feeling genuine excitement at the prospect!


  1. Oooh sounds deep!! Look forward to hearing more next week. Not long now till we get our magc hotpants which are going to make us drop 2 dress sizes anyway! xx

  2. Looking forward to hearing your plans, I tried every diet going and finally decided just get all the family eating healthier and spend some time exercising.

    Have a great positive week xx

  3. I love this! You sound like you are really 'finding yourself'. Good luck xxx

  4. Really pleased that being part of this great MUMenTUM group has given you the chance to take a step back and really discover what it is you are aiming towards.

    Look forward to hearing all about your plans.

    Have a great week :) x

    It all sounds very exciting stuff! You sound so positive which is great. Looking forward to meeting you on Saturday x

  7. Fabulous post, you sound as if the head stuff is starting to come together.  Your aims of how you would like to be are fab but remember they are a tall order and make sure you give yourself some slack.  No one is calm, positive and full of self-esteem all the time, we are only human after all.

  8. So much of slimming is in our heads.  I've found this.  Until your head is right you can't do it properly!  Mine's all over the place at the minute so I'm struggling.  Looking forward to hearing your plans!

  9. I totally empathise I am going through many of the same feelings. Look forward to seeing you Saturday. x
