On the way to a better me

Here I am again

I'm back, sorry, sorry, sorry. My how things have happened, I finally got my back seen to because I was in lots of pain all the time so I thought I should do something about it. Anyway I found out I have not one but two bulging discs in my back :( so it was no wonder really. My dr referred me to a Chiropractor which I have been seeing for a couple of weeks now, and oh my I love her so. It's feeling much better, although not at the moment because I was naughty and cleaned the shower and vacuumed the floor the other day, but things need to be done, but still, I shouldn't have because I hurt myself :( so, lesson learnt. Unfortunately with my back like this it means no running :( and no other form of exercise apart from walking :( So with this in mind I have decided that I will join Weight Watchers again, for a tighter reign on my eating seeing as I can't do any vigorous exercise to burn calories. I've put on a couple of kgs which I'm fine with seeing as I can't exercise as I want/need to and have been lazy with my eating, hence re-joining WW. I've also been sick with quite a terrible cold and have therefore been taking it more easy than usual, so I'm hoping that will sod off soon so I can start feeling better. We are off on holiday soon, to Sydney for a bit over a week and 3 days in QLD (I'm hoping it will be nice and sunny so I can defrost, catch some sun, thus making me feel better).

I'd like to now address an issue that quite upset me. Someone commented on one of my blog posts (I removed it) saying that I was "incredibly ugly", fair enough that people don't find me attractive, not everyone has the same taste, but to actually tell me was unwarranted and very nasty. I'm not a model and I'm not asking for critique, you're entitled to your opinion of course but please consider people's feelings before posting such comments, clearly this person did not, and I doubt that they were someone that loves and supports me and my journey, so poo to them.

So this is where I am at, not where I want to be of course but I'll have to lump it until I am able to move forward. If you read this, thank you for reading :D


  1. Bec, dearheart, your beauty is evident!! Inside AND out. But sadly, there are blighted souls who gain twisted pleasure by causing other people pain. They calculate what will hurt a person by looking for opportunities where they can find them, regardless if the truth of the matter. They live in a tortured hell of their own making and it is for us to pity them and turn away from the festering sores in the body of humanity that they are.

    You, on the other hand, are beautiful by not only your physical form but your kind, caring & effervescent nature.

  2. Although this may sound trite, I find that those who lash out behind the security of an anonymous internet handle are those who are actually jealous of what you have. And why wouldn't they be? You've worked hard at your goal and succeeded, you have 3 beautiful children, a talented husband, and plenty of friends who love you. Christ, *I'm* jealous of you!

    Well, kinda. I mean, my kid and partner are pretty awesome. :D

  3. You are one of the most beautiful people I know :) and I can't wait to meet you. Hope your back is feeling better xx

  4. Feel sorry for people who make comments like that. For sure they are unhappy on the inside. And that would suck more than anything.

  5. I just found your blog and WOW - I am almost in tears at what an amazing journey you're on. You're such a beautiful woman inside and out. As someone who has recently lost a fair bit of weight (with a lot more to go) I can relate to everything you've been through/are going through and when you're focussed on shifting your body image it is empowering, but I have also found that it can make you feel a little more vulnerable when a negative thought creeps in.

    So as for someone leaving nasty comments - HATERS GONNA HATE! Always going to happen when you are honest about "private" issues in public. Can I suggest that to help comments from attention-seeking trolls you just go and strike a few Vogue poses in the mirror and check out how hot you look?
