Hey everyone –
I need some tips and advice
In May 2013 I weighed 19stones 6lbs. it took about 18 months to lose 6 – 7 stones.
Today I weigh 11 stones 4lbs but I feel like I’ve been stuck on this for a while. Two and a half weeks ago I weighed 11 stones 8lb – so I have lost 4lbs in this time.
I am consuming around 1000 cals a day and work out Monday – Thursday without fail.
Three weeks ago I set myself a goal to lose 30lbs in 12 weeks.
I think my problem is, I have lost too much weight in a relatively short period of time. The first 5 stones were within a year, it almost feels like I still expect myself to lose weight at that speed.
I know I have to try harder now, hence all the exercise and strict eating but it just won’t budge.
Also, by losing weight at this speed and being so tunnel focussed, I think I suffer from some form of body dysmorphia. I’m a comfortable size 12 yet still pick up the size 16 clothing, less than a month ago I was on the Thorpe Park website checking out weight restrictions to make sure I was okay, Sometimes I see colleagues or friends and wish I looked like them, to only later find out I’m so much smaller than them.
Anyway – maybe this was a vent, maybe I need some advice I’m not too sure now! Haha
But I will say, losing weight is the best thing I did, I love how fit I am, how much more energy I have, how much less constricted I feel and how this has taught me exactly how strong of a person I am, physically and emotionally!
If anyone is going through that journey and would like a friend or someone to talk to, definitely get in touch. I am more than happy to share any experiences I have.
I guess, thank you for listening? Xx
