1. WEEK 1

The girl in the mirror was fat. She had extra weight on her hips, her arms, her thighs, her tummy. She needed to start a diet and start exercising. She was huge.

The girl in the mirror was me.

I knew I wasn't the skinniest of people. It wasn't until that photo of me with Nancy and Tate was taken that I realised I needed to lose weight. I hadn't thought of myself as fat previously. I was a few pounds heavier than I would have liked to be, but it hadn't ever really been a problem.

As I looked in the mirror, I felt a sort of motivation to lose weight. I went downstairs to speak to my mum.

"Mum, I'm going on a diet. I'm going to get fit and tone up," I announced.

"Good, I might join you," she said, smiling up at me.

That night, I went online and found pictures of fit, healthy girls and decided to print them off and use them as my motivation.

I looked at myself in the mirror one more time, and grabbed my camera. I took pictures from the back, side and front, and posted them online, along with my weight, which was 146 pounds. Not particularly heavy.

"I will lose weight," I whispered to myself before climbing into bed and turning out the light.
