I now have 20kgs to lose

Postby oostevens » Wed May 04, 2011 9:30 pm

OMG! So I have nearly reached the highest weight I have ever been and this is just killing me.

I am now 86kgs and I want to be around 65kgs so that means I have about 20kgs to lose. That is crazy! It is about the same weight as my dog!!!

I cannot believe how lazy I have been in regards to eating, exercise and motivation. I have become a very lazy person and I do not like this.

My problem areas are:

- I like quick foods, meaning meals that take no time at all to prepare (I spose I am also impatient). These are not always healthy.
- I eat my emotions. Whether I am happy, sad, angry, depressed or bored I eat.
- My eyes are bigger than my stomach. If I get really hungry then I eat like 3-4 serves and that is way too piggy for me.
- I prefer to sleep than to be active but I love being active when I do it.
- From past experience I have trouble sticking to new food/exercise plans.

So in my house I have the following:
1. Cross-trainer
2. Rower
3. Exercise Bike
4. Mini Tramp
5. Pilates trainer system (with weights)
6. Big backyard with room to exercise.
7. Two dogs that require walking.

But do I use any of the above? no! How bad is that? I want to use them, I paid/am paying for them.

Here is how it is to be:

I WILL lose 20kgs.
I WILL become active daily.
I WILL make healthy choices in regards to food.
I WILL walk a dog each evening after work.
I WILL set myself a workout plan.
I WILL be positive.
I WILL DO THIS BECAUSE I CAN!

Ok. Here's to a new me :)

Oh blast. I already failed day 1.

I ate a whole bag of doritos, drank soft drink and had a MAJOR carb loaded dinner.

Good one spaz!

Plus I did no exercise.

Thoughts tonight? Vegan

Don't give up now, Rachel! Be glad that you only have 20kg to lose and work on not making it any more than that!! That is one of the things I constantly regret is putting on more weight after losing it then having to lose it again!!! It is most definitely possible and yes, it will be hard work but imagine how amazing you will feel the more you lose.

You can do it!!!
