12WBT - Task 1

So day one of Michelle Bridges 12WBT was yesterday.
Task one was revealed: Introduce Yourself.
Easy peasy, just write a couple of sentences about your life; name, family, age, where you live, work etc etc.

NO!! I had to go and have one of my brainiac ideas didn't I.
I was going to 'Vlog' it! What a dick!

Stunning Screen Shot
Seriously if there is video camera, iphone or camera pointed within 4ft of me I'm out of there!
So why not record myself, talking to myself for a million
strangers to check out ?????

This is my first ever blog and now I decide to do my first ever you tube video.
It wasn't so bad, I did about 3 recordings and then posted...unedited.
 (Because I don't know how to!)
Within about an hour I had received
my very first 'creepy' comment -
Yay for me!
I stopped trying to decipher this first line
"If you get any any better looking we'll have to sell you"
I really think its best if  I stop trying to gain an understanding of it, too many weird scenarios keep popping up!
Just hope the 35 views are not all from him...aaargh!!!

Anyway I am actually feeling pretty proud of myself for stepping waaayyy out and over my comfort matter how weird it was talking to myself -
(the boys just rolled their eyes " why are YOU doing that ")
 I won't let them watch it - they'll laugh LOL!
I sat there and CRINGED while Matt watched it though -
to his credit he didn't laugh or make a joke
.....(he knew WAY better)!! 
 I love him xx

Task one complete.

I have calculated my weight excess to be about 11kg per baby.......They are a bit grown up now, I don't think I need to keep it ANYMORE!!

Baby #1 - Tyler

Baby #2 - Jake

Miracle Baby #3 - Ryan

The Beginning

98kg. That's what I have to admit to in public, 98kg. There is no amount of beautiful clothing, jewellery, accessories or freshly blow dried hair that can disguise this fact. Worse still its not the heaviest I have been!
I am always putting others before myself. People always tell me I do to much, give too much time, don't take time for myself. I help out at school ALOT, I'm registrar for the local footy club, I'm there for my 80yr old nan when she needs me, I'm studying Education Support online (occasionally-when I get time!) and the other stuff like getting three rowdy boys up and off to school, driving them to footy training, games, nippers &swimming. Then theres the mundane ritual of cooking, cleaning & washing. When time permits I create dress jewellery for my online business - more a hobby then a business.....and on and on and on. Of course NONE of these jobs are paid ones...The good old volunteer!

I'm screwed though I am the product of my parents others before yourself, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, do unto others etc etc.  Great philosophies, so bloody great they have been ingrained on my conscious - I CANT SAY NO!!!!
You see if I don't do these volunteer jobs, then who does?? Not others, they're way busier than me - apparently!

If I'm not there to lend a hand, to help someone in need, to ease the strain on the kindy teacher, to teach a small person to read or count to ten and watch there eyes light up at there achievement, support my boys football passion, run a tidy house with fresh cooked meals for my family (well most days)THEN WHAT KIND OF PERSON DOES THAT MAKE ME???

Problem is I have not 'neglected' but maybe pushed myself to the side and just done the best with what I have, and I've got a bonus 33kg to show for it -
 Lucky me!
