I'm Tegan, I'm 21 & I'm addicted to all the wrong foods!
Bit of a background story, 4 years ago I was 75kg's, had abs & felt comfortable in a bikini! I played multiple sports every week & could eat what ever I wanted. Then I was a passenger in a nasty car accident that put me in bed for 6 months & put a stop to all that wonderful exercise. I continued eating (and eating). In the following 6 months after the accident I put on 20kg's and the 3 years following another 40kg's =[. For the last 18 months since the injury stablished I have continued to use it as an excuse for over eating & extreme laziness. Recent photos from my engagement party & fiance's 21st have shocked & disgusted me. I literally wanted to be sick when I saw myself. I don't recognize the fat unhappy girl standing next to my friends & man.
I am so very aware of how unhealthy that is and it's prompted a change. Yes I have constant pain from my injury & I can't return to my sports or the gym any time soon but I can walk, I can swim, I can take the stairs & I can eat better.
Today marks day 10 & I'm feeling great! No physical changes yet and I'm not ready to weigh myself yet but I feel good. I've started a multivitamin & I'm trying to improve my terrible sleep schedule.
I made a promise to myself, I will not walk down the isle until I am in the double figures & I intend on keeping that promise. I do not want to look back on the photos & feel that disgust. I want hubby to be to see the girl he fell in love with all those years ago.
Okay so the specs (eep!!)
Age: 21 female
Current weight: 135.00kg's (as of 06/05/12)
First goal weight: 125.00kgs & I am hoping to do this in 10 weeks!
Ultimate goal weight: 85-90kg's before my wedding (no date yet)
I'd love to go back to the high 70's but at this point in time it seems unacheivable.
I have cut fizzy drinks and replaced it with water & cordial. I am a huge lover of pasta but I am trying to really minimize this. I am replacing bread with wraps. I am dishing my food up on smaller plates (& not going back for seconds. Eating my veggies first with a glass of water. I am saying no to the biscuits the chips the cakes the lollies - one of the harest things is giving up chocolate but I have no self control when it comes to choccies. I've also re activated MyFitnessPal & am using it daily.
As for exercise, we've been going for walks averaging about 3.5km's every second night.
Okay - that's enough rambling from me. I hope you can all help keep me motivated and on track & provide feedback & other ideas!
I will reach double digits
