Loosing the Xmas Fat Before & After Pics!

Today's post is a little bit daunting for me. At 5ft 2 and 38 years young i have found that over the last 6 months i was steadily putting a few pounds on here and there and generally eating a lot of convenience foods and feeling really unhealthy. I have always been prone to gaining weight but am finding as I'm getting older the battle of the bulge is harder to maintain. 

On New years eve i made a resolution. My resolution was to get healthy. I'm not measuring my health by weight but my goal is to tone up, get fitter, healthier and stronger. After years of dieting and loosing weight and putting it back on Ive realised that there has to be a better way.

I don't want to count calories. My metabolism is shot from eating so little and then binging that i have to try something that i can maintain that will fit in with my everyday life and not make me feel deprived.  So this is what I'm doing:
Cutting out processed foods 
Cutting out Alcohol, Coffee, Fizzy drinks
Taking supplements

Here's How I'm doing so far.

I have also lost 10 pounds in weight
I can do 10 Press ups ( Compared to 0 )
I can run for 20 mins on a treadmill (Compared to 5)

I have to say I'm surprised at how fast my body has changed. It hasn't been easy and i still have a long way to go but i am proud of myself for what i have achieved in just 6 weeks. I am happy to share what foods Ive been eating and what exercise Ive done if anybody is interested. Thanks for reading and i will be keeping you updated as i continue on this healthy mission. If anybody has any links to healthy eating or exercise blogs id love you to leave me a link so i can get some inspiration xx


  1. What an inspiration. Well done on being focused. You look great :) x

  2. Thank you. I still have a lot of work to do but i am looking forward to seeing the changes as time goes on xx

  3. You look great Nicoletta. Well done. I'm 5ft 2 as well and extra weight shows up so easily when you are a shortie!

  4. You look fab, well done! :) xx

  5. You look awesome! We have so much in common! I'm 5'2", I'll be 38 in March, and my metabolism is ridiculously slow because I eat very little but then will sometimes binge on junk if it's around. I am struggling sticking with eating healthier foods (even though I love, and prefer, them) because is suck at planning and end up just eating nothing or something convenient. Have you been managing to perk up your metabolism by eating more often? How have found success with that?

  6. Hi Christa, i do think my metabolism is improving but i think its a mixture of things that are helping. I am exercising between 3 and 5 times a week, drinking green tea and eating very regularly. I have to be honest and say that i havent lost weight as fast as i previously did BUT im eating a lot more and it seems to be coming off gradually. I will do another post soon with some details of what im eating and what types of supliments im taking etc if you are interested. Thanks for your comment xx
