I figured rather than chew the ears off my skinny friends with tales of diet and gym I'd bore the heck out of a bunch of like minded people
So I'm Hanny, I'm Twenty and I've been overweight my entire life. In November of last year I took a good look at my life and compared how I was actually living to how I wanted to live. Needless to say at 113kgs I wasn't enjoying my 20s as much as I should have been and I finally took weight loss seriously.
Today I sit at 98kgs, still technically obese, but so proud of the body I've worked hard for these last few months. I'm smaller than I was in High School, I'm currently wearing a pair of jeans I bought on impulse when I was 17 that didn't fit. My weight is in DOUBLE DIGITS! I have more confidence, I don't make excuses when friends want to go the beach or invite me around when there are people I don't know there. I'm happier, I'm healthier, but I still have a long way to go.
I've been off the wagon since I started Uni in March, although it seems I've managed to maintain my weight, which to me is one of the most exciting things in the world. It proves my theory that I wasn't living an incredibly unhealthy life, I was just living an unhealthy life that was slowly creeping up on me. It also means that when I get to my goal weight I'm not going to wake up one morning and suddenly be overweight again. My weight wasn't a product of a few years bad decisions, its a product of a lifestyle I've lived since day dot.
Now my 21st Birthday is approaching and I need to get this train back on the tracks. So, I'm here to ramble, I'm here to complain and I'm here to track goals.
The goals, as of now, which may be edited as I fall off the wagon and clamber back on:
85kgs - October 7th. My twenty first birthday, a day I want to really shine.
83kgs - I'll officially be overweight, bye bye obese.
82kgs - November 5th. My Aunties wedding, and the day before my niece is due, I don't want my niece looking back at photos of her and her Aunty and seeing some fat lady.
78kgs - December 25th. The first big family Christmas in ten or so years. Fingers crossed my Family won't even recognize me.
73kgs - February 7th. I'll officially be starting back at Uni, some of my classmates won't have seen me since November.
68kgs - Finally Normal weight range. I've never been able to say that before!
65kgs - FINAL GOAL.
Then it's just maintain, maintain, maintain
I'm so excited to be back on track, and with such an amazing website behind me.
