12wbt Blog Challenge – Introduce Yourself

1. Describe yourself in 25 words or less. You can get straight to the point – or bring your creativity into play. 

Someone who thought she knew it all – but realises now she has a lot to learn about herself.

An ex Weight Watchers leader – who up until 4 weeks and 4 days ago felt like a total failure.

2. What brings you to 12wbt? Getting fitter? Losing weight? (Gaining weight??) Are you first timer, a repeat offender?? 

This is my first round of 12wbt.  I have joined 12wbt to discard about 75kgs – half my current weight.  Since joining I’ve decided to keep going with 12wbt once I get to my goal weight of 77kgs – I want to be lean and strong and as fit as I can be!

3. Why do you blog?? 

A few reasons.  To get my thoughts and feelings off my chest.  To keep a record of my journey.  To communicate with others also on the 12wbt journey.  To offer my support to other members in achieving their goals.


4. Who is your biggest inspiration in life and why (doesn’t have to be weight loss)

The Dalai Lama.  He is a truly inspiring individual who has helped so many people find true happiness.  Because of the actions of others, his life has not gone the way it should have – and yet he has continued to fulfill his destiny and spread his message of peace and love.  He has never given up on what is important.

5. What things in life bring you the most joy?

Spending time with my husband, my children, cooking, reading, bushwalking, travelling, live theatre, Zumba, Body Pump and visiting Solar Springs with my mum – only 255 days until our next visit!  Basically, anything that makes me smile!  I hope soon to count yoga and running on this list – especially as they are pursuits which used to bring me joy.

6.What do you think your greatest challenge is going to be this round?

Getting underway with the c25k program – any day now 😉 and RPM – first class 6am tomorrow – not looking forward to the sore bum 😦

7. What are you most excited about 12wbt? 

Michelle Bridge’s enthusiasm and passion, the transformations which have already taken place, the empowerment I feel already after 4 weeks of preseason and 2 days of the 12 weeks.

Eating clean, exercising mean and learning how to hold myself in higher esteem.

8. And what scares the pants off you?

That I will sprain my ankle (they are both dodgy) and won’t be able to exercise.

9. Tell me – right now – today – how do you feel about exercise in no more than 10 words

Love how good I feel after I exercise!

10. Complete this sentence – in 12 weeks time – on the last day of 12wbt I am going to be feeling like a better version of myself – totally transformed and ready for the next round.
