I'm 26 now and it was in this month 11 years ago that I first started dieting as a 15 year old who was 93 kilos and 169cm tall. So would begin my journey...I started off counting calories and eating 1200 a day, I quickly dropped down to 76 before losing motivation and started binge-eating. However I stayed at 76 kilos for the next six months because I was obsessively exercising it all away. After this six months I went back on the 1200 calorie a day diet and got down to 53 kilos. I weighed everything, counted calories obsessively and exercised obsessively...to the point where I had OCD and had to go to a psychiatric hospital for a few months.
Because I had counted calories for 2 years once I started eating without counting calories it was like I'd been let out of a cage and by the time I turned 21 I was 102 kilos.
I managed to drop down to 82 kilos by the time I turned 24, but this wasn't intentional. By that I mean I didn't do it on purpose amazingly. Unfortunately I had to go and spoil this luck by gaining the weight and I went back to 92 kilos by the time I turned 26.
I have been purposefully trying to lose weight since april this year- I am now down to 84, so I've lost 8 so far! I'm not doing it in an obsessive manner this time- just trying to eat alot more healthy, making sure I exercise everyday and having chocolate maybe once a week. I've been 84 kilos for about 3 weeks now and I'm losing motivation but I know I just have to keep plodding on til I get to 64 kilos.
