Under Construction :)
I’m Sinead - prononced shin-aid. Its Irish.
Living in a small country town in rural Victoria, Australia.
My URL has nothing to do with my weightloss story. I just live in socks, rather than wearing shoes.
I want everyone to know. I DON’T hate my body, thats not why I’m changing. I’m doing this for my health. A new body will just be a bonus.
I made this decision to change my life. I can’t pin point the exact moment, but I can narrow it down.
“The love of my life for 2 years had just decided one morning he was going to move across the country, without asking me to go with him. At that point, it turned to food and alcohol. I didn’t do anything for 2 weeks, and then, I went on a holiday with 2 lovely girls. I guess I could say that’s what made me want to change. We spent a week travelling, 6 days in byron bay and then a few more days travelling home. It was on that holiday I realised I wanted to be healthy, I wanted to be able to buy clothes from regular stores, I wanted to be able to go to the beach and enjoy sunbaking and swimming. i didn’t want to feel I had to cover up and I could flaunt my body”
After returning from that holiday my mind was completely changed. I’m so grateful for that, if it wasn’t for them I would be the same size or bigger.
Its been a year since I seriously committed to this lifestyle.
I’m 20kgs lighter.
I know I could have lost more, but in the past year alot has gone on. I was very sick for around 3 months with an allergic reaction. It took alot out of me and a massive toll on my self-image. I couldn’t exercise for those months, which took a toll on me mentally. I had my 21st birthday, christmas and new year. I fell off the “weightloss” wagon for a bit.
I sometimes look at myself and mentally still think I look the same. But so many people tell me I look so different.
Thank you if you took the time to read this, it probably makes no sense because I babble on about nothing.
I’m here to talk to, I love all my followers, don’t be scared :)
I’ve come this far and I’ve got a long way to go, but after all, slow and steady wins the race.
