Easter is over and the chocolate has got to go! I'm ready to be serious about my weight loss.
I'm 21 years old, dress size 16 and I want to lose weight and be a size 12.
I think the last time I was size 12 is when I was 12. I've petty much been overweight all my life. It hasn't been good for my self-esteem especially since most of my family are quite slim. It's not fun going to family parties and being the ugly, fat girl. But feeling sorry for myself isn't going to do anything and if I want to change I know I have to put the effort into it.
I've already stated cultivating better health habits. I always have my water bottle with me so I can keep hydrated during the day. Last summer I started NHS c25k, which I have now graduated from and can now run 5k in around 38mins (though because of uni work and general laziness I haven't run for weeks). And since last week I have cut out the sugary children's cereal from my breakfast and instead have started to eat a bowl of oats, skimmed milk and one portion of fruit blended together for a healthy, naturally sweetened meal.
My aim for this week is to:
1) Start running 3 times a week again
2) Eat healthy breakfasts
3) Get weighed and measured at the GP so that I can track my weight loss
4) Join My Fitness Pal
5) Start regulating my unhealthy snacking to the weekend- This is my biggest hurdle I think. I have no issue with exercising but I can't seems to stop snacking, or even snack in moderation. If I open a tub of pringles then I HAVE to eat it all in one sitting even as part of me is telling me not :/. And I know outright banning myself from them won't work at all. So I want to attempt to at least leave those bad foods for the weekend and consider them treats for being good on the week days. And hopefully if I decrease the amount of days I snack that will be good enough for now.
And that is all. Nothing too drastic so hopefully I can achieve all of this
