Hi! I’m Healthy_Nut.
I'm a 30 something who dreams of having a beautiful, strong, healthy body. The only trouble is, I love high fat & sugar food (chocolate, caramel, and cream cakes, to name but a few), sitting down to watch movies (sci-fi & fantasy being my fave), create art, write fiction, play card, board and video games, and spend literally hours scouring Pinterest for Fitness Motivation images!
Unfortunately this hasn't helped me get my dream body. I weigh myself every few weeks, and although I knew I needed to lose a few stone, I kidded myself in thinking I could easily shift it, and I was only 'a little overweight'. So I decided to enter my weight into the NHS Healthy Weight Calculator, weighing 13st 10lbs, I got a surprising result of OBESE, with a BMI of 32.9! I need to lose over 3 stone in weight. Wow.
I've been eating Butter and Whole Milk, eating as much fat as I wanted, assuming I needed the energy and nutrients to fuel my dream body that needed all the energy and protein to build strong muscles and bones from all the weight training I would do. Only I hadn't lifted a single dumbbell.
Now I'm planning a complete diet overhaul, and actually starting an exercise routine (instead of endlessly dreaming of doing one). It's time to create that dream body, and make it a reality.
I'd love to hear from anyone going through the same, or already been through this, any tips and encouragement would be very gratefully received!
Many Thanks in advance, and looking forward to getting to know you all!
