The excitement for me started with Dancing on Ice in January – an experience that will stay with me forever with such very happy memories. Then our first Grandchild was born – beautifully wonderful and healthy – bringing a joy and excitement I just hadn’t imagined. The Queen’s Jubilee filled us with such joy and admiration for an exceptional monarch who has selflessly given 60 years of her life to the Nation. The love and appreciation that was poured out to Her Majesty was palpable. And we all felt better for celebrating it with her.
Then we had the Olympics and the Paralympics in London. When we first heard the news seven years ago that London had been awarded the Olympics there was joy but also, I felt, a concern. A kind of ‘Oh crumbs! I hope we can pull it off and not make fools of ourselves!’ Well, we needn’t have worried! It was the best organised and most successful Olympics of all time and we all glowed with pride at such a magnificent success! The Olympics put the pride back into our wonderful Nation and a big WELL DONE is due to Lord Seb Coe and his team! Fabulous!
But most of all it was a massive ‘WELL DONE’ to the Olympians. The training, the dedication, the discipline, the sheer guts and determination to get to the top of their sport was just mind-blowing – with more medals won than ever before. And then the Paralympians! What absolute heroes who, despite massive disabilities and disadvantages, overcame their restrictions and found their strengths. They blew us away with their courage and determination. The whole London 2012 Olympic experience was awesome and we were all left inspired and utterly proud to be British!
And what have you achieved this year? Are you fitter than this time last year? Are you slimmer? How different is your dress size this Christmas compared to last year? Do you feel healthier now than you did a year ago? Congratulate yourself on any success you have achieved and enjoy your progress.
But maybe this hasn’t been your year. Maybe you haven’t lost weight or take a smaller dress size. As one of our dieters, Amy, wrote to me ‘I cannot believe how dedicated and focussed those Olympic athletes must have been through their years of training – and yet I cannot seem to stay focussed for more than a few days on my diet. I feel I have let myself down, you and everyone else who is supporting me. Why do I do this to myself?’
And Amy is not alone. We are so slow to praise our efforts and super-quick at self-criticism. ‘Oh, I am so hopeless. I am just meant to be fat!’ is not an uncommon exclamation. I have said it myself. But we should get everything into perspective and try to understand why we want to lose weight in the first place. Then, as we approach a new year and a new start we need to get our head sorted so we are ready for January 1st and let next year the year we get Gold!
