I'm 22 and from Scotland. I have had issues with my weight all my life, but recently the weight has crept up on me. I've been trying to diet and lose weight for the past couple of years but have adopted the "I'll start tomorrow" mentality. I was recently on a trip abroad to Australia and went bungee jumping, which is where I got the motivation to lose weight this time. We had to get weighed before jumping and two of my mates had their weights recorded as 70kg and 76kg, and mine was an embarrassing 115kg.
Since coming back home, I joined a gym, but have only recently started going to it. I have the help of a PT this time. I had a weigh in last week and my weight had gone up to 125kg within a 3 month period; I felt shocked.
However, I feel more motivated this time than I ever have. With this being my last year at uni and starting working August, I NEED to lose weight.
I plan to lose weight by working out with my PT, completing the couch to 5K programme and changing my diet dramatically.
I've never used a blogging site like this before so I hope that this too will also keep me motivated. I will try and post weekly updates to keep myself and you informed.
