I want to start a little diary kind of thing on here to track how I'm going, hope you don't mind!
My start weight was 115, after just weighing myself on wiifit, I am currently 111.7, yay!
December 13 I leave to go the the US for five weeks so I am hoping I can keep up my weight loss while I am away.
Many people are asking me why I don't just start when I get back but I can not stand to look at this reflection another day longer without doing something to make myself happier with it!
Before I leave, I aim to be double digits which might seem crazy but I am currently on duramine. My doctor prescribed it as I have been having trouble kickstarting any weightloss as I can't currently exercise much due to my asthma. I find however that once I have lost this bit of weight and get to arround the 100 mark, my asthma improves a lot, so I will go off it either before I leave or when I reach the double digits!
I will be extremely touristey whilst in the US and walking heaps so hopefully I can keep up with healthy eating while there.
My ultimate goal is 69kg, a weight I haven't been since I was about 14
I hope to achieve this goal by this time next year... I hope that's a realistic projection, I'm not quite sure.
My motives include:
I have always been big and never happy about it - I finally have the motivation to fully commit to changing that
Many in my family suffer from weight related conditions and diseases
My asthma tends to fluctuate according to my current weight and I would love to have it under control. I hate when people give me looks when i am huffing and puffing as if to say its because you are fat and lazy and don't exercise - it's actually a medical condition people!
I get complacent whilst in relationships - I want my boyfriend to see me how I was 2 years ago again, if not better!
I am going to be a school teacher once I finish my degree, do not want to be known as the fatty teacher lol
My feet and ankles swell really badly - I have shoes ranging from size 8-10 depending on my weight
A proportionate body would be nice, with some nice fitting clothes for once. It seems that my body deposits fat really randomly and i would like to get rid of all the awkward lumps and bumps
I want people to look at me and not either seem revulsed or full of pity!
I have previously had a consistently weak mindset, I will eat chocolate or mcdonalds and think to myself the whole time that it is wrong but still not stop myself. Not only that, I often get sever indigestion after eating takeaway but it still doesn't stop me
I am too embarrassed to go to a gym, instead I am aiming to use walking and wiifit (it is really awesome!)
I don't have anyone to do this with (hence you guys!) my boyfriend is actually my goal weight and he is trying to build weight and muscle so we have conflicting workouts and meal plans which can be difficult
My trip - I have just got to learn how to be good and to budget my money so i can afford more than takeaway lol
That's all I can think of at the moment
Wish me luck in the coming days, weeks and months!
