I was going to start a weekly weigh in post in the weigh ins thread but I realized I wanted to do so much more than simply put up numbers so I figured I'd be better off here :)

I'm currently 108kgs and would LOVE to be at my goal weight of 75kgs by my 22nd Birthday in October. I'm sick of wasting my twenties on junk food and huffing and puffing everywhere.

I read somewhere that being accountable was a huge motivator, the person who wrote the article posted her weight on her facebook every week but personally I don't want to bore my friends/seem like I'm bragging and I'd much rather they notice my progress without my help.

So, the aim is to post weekly weights and challenges and monthly measurements and photos.

Week One:

Weight: 108kgs
Goal: Eat under 1500cals a day.
Measurements: I can't find my tape :/ Will update later.

*Grumble, Grumble*

I have had the most horrible time recently. A late night hospital trip, finding out I won't be totally better for a couple of months and guess what? I didn't reach my goal for this week.

BUT on a good note I have started nibbling away at my smoking habit. In the last three days I've had roughly seventeen smokes. That's down from over 20 a day. So I'm a happy-ish camper.

I don't think I'll be back at the gym for a few weeks, so it might be time to give them a ring and put my membership on hold. That doesn't mean I won't be working at my goals though, it just means I've realised I have to let my body heal and it's not going to do it if I'm pushing myself super hard.

I hate that I'm at such an unhealthy point in my life. I'm twenty one years old, but I feel like I'm 50.

Anyway, grumble over. The new goals will apparently run from Friday to Friday, because I'm hoping it'll help me keep accountable over the weekends.

Week One:

Weight: 108kgs
Goal: Eat under 1500cals a day.

I'd also love to ensure I go for a walk everyday, even if it's just ten minutes a time. But that's kind of like extra credit.

Sorry to hear you're not well and hope you get back to full health soon.

I like that you're thinking of putting your gym membership on hold. Means that you're being realistic AND making sure that the membership will be tere for you when you ARE fit enough to use it.

Also, I like that fact that, even though you are cutting down the cigarettes, you are still intending to reduce your calorie intake.

Suggestion: If there is a special time that you like to smoke, be prepared for it and have something else to do at that time. eg if you usually go outside with your coffee and have a smoke, cut down on the coffee breaks and do something else

Good luck :)

Thanks for the awesome advice RTF :) I'll be sure to have something better to do when during the times I know I'll want a smoke.
