OBESE… Yup, that is me. I would love to be able to say that this has been a sudden realisation, or that I have medical reasons / had children / all of the excuses under the sun, but I have nothing. I am lazy and ate crap.
So how much do I weigh? 97.8kgs. I began this weight loss journey at a whopping 103kgs. I am 170cm tall and have a BMI of 33.9. The scary thing is, I am only 23 years old.
This journey for me is going to be tough. It is going to be a lot of blood, sweat and tears…
I started this thread as a place for me to check in to and record all of my progress – both positive and negative. It is a place for me to talk and vent, to work through issues and receive advice. Please feel free to join me on my journey.
So now comes the fun part – what lifestyle plan am I actually following? I have decided to go right back to basics. I am going to have fresh foods – fruits, vegies and lean meats. I am limiting my food intake (and have even bought a smaller plate!). I am limiting foods that are high in carbohydrates, but ensuring that I still eat whole grains etc every day.
I am also going to increase my about of exercise. I will start off with walking and work myself up to running.
So… bring on the cute, slim girl I know I can be!
