So I decided it was probably time to begin a "diary" of my personal progress seeing i have reached a few (small) milestones so far.
I started this journey at a disgusting 140kg...i never exercised, i ate takeaway a couple times a week, chocolate, cake and biscuts every day, hardly any water...and SOFTDRINK!! Nearly 3 litres a day sometimes. My New Years resolution was originally to quit smoking, which I have, since the 10th January. I used quitting as an excuse to eat like an animal, blaming it on the quitting. Finally, when I saw my reflection in Mcdonals about a week or so later, a night i thought i looked kick ass, i was shocked. I didn't even recognise the person looking back at me.
I know im thin and beautiful under all this, but I've always been one of those girls thats "friends" with guys, the funny girl, and always making fun of my looks and my weight. I know its to mask my pain that I was that person. But I don't want to be "her" anymore.
I've challenged myself to be down to 100kg by the end of the year. It will be tough, but I think it is reasonable and doable. I've joined this forum as it seems so inspiring and encouraging, and I really need that in my life at the moment.
So far, I have dropped 4.3 kilos since new year. I exercised for an hour yesterday, instead of my 30min workout. I have been drinking 3 litres of WATER, no softdrink, just a small fruit juice with breakfast. I've cut out sweets, substituting fruit, and weight watcher snacks.
This is my year...Im going to eat to live, not live to eat!
