I am a Mummy with self confidence issues. Along with anxiety & depression. But I am trying to become a yummy mummy. 

One of my first steps in the transformation is to lose weight. This isn’t going too bad at the minute since I joined Tesco Diets. I’ve lost around half a stone so far on this plan, making my total loss to date 36 lbs, which is just over halfway to my final goal. I’m hoping to reach that by the end of this year, or next year at the very most, as I’ve been at it since the beginning of 2010 now! But, I haven’t given up. 

Today, I went and got a new dramatic haircut. I have thick hair which is very hard to manage, goes frizzy at the first sign of moisture, takes forever to dry, and forever to straighten, so it’s up in a ponytail all the time as I can’t do anything with it. I knew I wanted to go short, but wasn’t sure on how short, as like I said I’m not the most confident person so wasn’t sure if I’d be able to pull it off. The shortest it’s ever been is shoulder length. In the end I went for this (excuse the selfie in the supermarket!):

I love it! I feel great.

Next on the list is clothes. I really need to sort my wardrobe out. Half of it is frumpy, stemming from trying to cover myself up when I’ve been at my heaviest weight. So this also goes hand in hand with losing weight. Though recently I have bought some magenta skinny jeans which I wouldn’t have dreamed of wearing before, so it’s a step in the right direction. I don’t really have a certain style, I just wear what I feel comfortable in. Which I must say is getting better with the more weight I lose. 

I will be a yummy mummy, one day!
