So probably none of you will remember me but I wrote my first post back in late march/early april about how depressed I was due to my weight of 12 stone 8lbs and how it was affecting every part of my life. After all the replys - most of which I already knew and 100% agreed with I got all fired up and did - nothing, yep you read that right I did absolutely nothing except continue to feel sorry for myself and wait for some miracle cure so I could eat rubbish all day and never exercise and yet somehow become painfully thin!
It's truly hard to believe that was only 3 months ago. I don't know where it came from or how I managed it but somehow at the start of June I officially hit rock bottom. There was literally no direction but up. So things went drastic, on the 4th of June I kicked my partner out the house for a week (I knew I couldn't do it with him here but he had saw how unhappy I'd become and where we were headed and agreed) I did a complete overhaul in that week. I got rid of all the crap foods. I used the change for life app and cooked the foods from there making sure to count my calories. In the first 9 days I lost 8lbs and 8inches (mostly from around my waist and hips) I couldn't believe it. I was eating delicious food - having a pudding after both lunch and dinner and losing weight! Mind blowing.
So fast forward to now. So far I've lost a stone! My skin has improved no end, I don't even crave bad food anymore. I've had chocolate, crisps and biscuits in my house for the past 3 weeks and not even had to pull out the willpower. Plus because I get like 2 deserts a day (my faves are plum crunchies at 106cal and banana bran loaf at 132cal) it doesn't even seem like I'm dieting. -which I recently realised I'm actually not. I'm changing my life!
It's refreshing to know that through eating right and exercise I'm losing weight because of ME. I'm the one doing this no one else! :))
I still have another 2/2.7 to lose but I know that I'm on my way. And I'm going to get there healthily!
