Today is my 6th wedding anniversary

Dear lovers of rice and curry and my dear lovers of Fish and Chips did you ever think that the twain shall meet and exchange vows from the land of King Fisher to the land of Guiness Beer or posh Baily’s Liquer well they did, From the Land of Indian Bhangra of Bolly Hood, to the Waltz of BBC. My dear, dear friends in this 21st century when going from the land of East to settle in the Land of West is like jumping on a bus to a new adventure.

Yes I the Indian Aunty was quite adventurous and landed myself in Northern Ireland I knew nothing of the country or culture I had not even tried fish and chips and then this wonderful Irish man came into my life and we exchanged not only vows but foods and I loving cooking cooked rice and curries and he loving me bought fish and chips and before we knew it we looked chocolate and vanilla cupcakes walking hand in hand.

But then my vanilla cupcake decided to shed the pounds and now is a handsome dude while the chocolate cupcake being me is shedding the pounds slowly. My dear friends then we went on holiday for a week and I have put on 4 pounds but I am working on it. This week the Indian aunty is going wobbling I mean walking and hopefully I can get there size 8 by the 18th of November.

Eating is a pleasure but one must not get too carried away by it one must think is that really necessary so my dear munchkins my dear sweetypies as we say in India we can shift this weight I do not want to wobble like a duck I want to swim gracefully like a swan.

So dear munchkins next week I will tell you the result of my weightloss and I want to be a size 8 again and be an inspiration.  Eat wisely and excerise and let me know how you do .We can not be Victoria Secret Models but we can be that coveted yummy aunty I am not referring to the chocolate cupcake with icing being make up but we be chic  and healthy.

So dear sweetypies let us do it and prove to the world we are gorgeous inside and outside.Grrrrrr lets get dieting and look our best.

People say I am comfortable in my skin are we really I feel like a BIG BROWN COCONUT brown on the outside and white inside I am Indian born to Indian Parents But I think in English and write in English and am comfortable both in India and UK. I also am an Indian British Citizen if that does not complicate matters this brown coconut is over weight so time to shed this baggage of fat and become a slender coconut tree.

So Good Bye talk to you next week

My weightloss journey

I am writing a journal to track my weightloss. I am 5 feet 3 inches and am 167.6 pounds. I am Indian and yes I am a fat Indian aunty. My goal is to lose 67 pounds by the 18th of November which is my 35th Birthday to make matters worse my husband has just lost 4 stone and looks fit, trim and handsome while I waddle with him by his side like a force fed duck yes I do need to see a weight loss quack. As I look at my thunder thighs and thunder arms I just can not recognise myself.

How did I get this way by eating dominos pizzas, Chocolate bunnies easter eggs, and a chinese take aways me a couch potato ” No Way’ but as I look at my self in the mirror I see a middle aged Indian aunty looking back at me I can hardly recognise my self make up helps but one can’t hide those balloons behind my back oh no it is my derrière.Not to mention the ones in the other side.

My handsome husband was holding me in his arms the other day and he said darling you have love handles. Referring to the extra pounds on my belly and side. So now I am now taking the step to shed my pounds. I am not happy in my skin I do enjoy a good joke or two but if it is constantly referred to the latter word beginning with b and ending with tt that belongs to me I have to do something about it.

So now from today my first goal is to reach a size 12 dress by the end of May I am now a size 14. So my fellow dieters lets get busy shedding this weight. From size 14 to size 12. One of my favourite saying is where there is a will there is a way so next sunday about this time I will let you know how much weight I have lost. From Fat to Fab here I come.
