Ready or Not, Here I Come!

Well, it's the night before the big kick-off... and how am I feeling?? Well, to be completely honest, I'm feeling relieved and ready to start! I've read a lot of people posting things about being nervous to start, but I'm ready and rearing to go!
It's been a few weeks since I actually signed up for the program, and I have to admit I haven't been able to start the whole healthy eating and exercise thing yet, because it hadn't really started! I've done all the pre-season tasks, and measured up, stocked up the fridge with super healthy foods, thrown out all the rubbish etc etc. I don't remember the last time my fridge looked so stocked full of good healthy food!
And so I'm ready, tomorrow's the day, and I'm ready to get into this 12wbt and lose some weight for good. Lunch is packed, the gym clothes are out and ready to jump into when the alarm goes off, and I'm ready!
Yet, I can't help but think I've been here before. I've been this weight before. As I took my measurements this morning it was with some grief that I realised I've been this size before, and last time I lost the weight I swore I was never putting it back on. And here I am, over 100kg, with body measurements that are twice that of other people. So the task for the next 12 weeks is to lose the weight (obviously) but also to figure out a way to combat the complacency which has often slipped in after losing weight previously. So if you're out there reading this, and you've got some tips for overcoming complacency, please leave me a comment.


  1. Your fridge looks so clean and yummy!!

    I think complacency can be a problem with me too. I give up early or just couldn't be bothered. I think Michelle's JFDI slogan is a great help, and I am getting better at doing that.

    I am spending half my life on the 12wbt forums and blogosphere at the moment really just so that I am so focused on the program that I don't give myself a chance to become complacent.

  2. Thanks Cass, the fridge is slowly getting de-stocked, but will be filled again sometime over the weekend!
    Yeah, forums & blogs are really helpful - and I've also found that being busy helps too - I've hardly had time to think this week!!
    Best of Luck!
