Time to face reality and stop making excuses for my weight!
Since I started university 5 years ago a size 12 my health, physical and mental, has taken a downward spiral with me occasionally losing control of my life all together (resulting in my current dress size 18).
Although I graduated easily with a 1st class engineering degree, I'm still unhappy which is likely due to my current weight (about 90kg but I haven't weighed myself) and state of my mental health (I suffer with high anxiety which often ruins any plans I try to make).
However, I start my PhD in October, I've just moved house to a much nicer, friendlier and safer area and I've had time to think about how I want to change my life.
Next week I will start with a gym induction, a new hair cut and a major push to lose weight, gain back my self confidence and hopefully gain back control over my mental health and happiness.
Motivation to lose weight is going to be a key struggle since I really am a couch potato and over eat like crazy with no self control. I have incredible self control and motivation with my studies, so why not with the rest of my life?
Any tips or motivation would be great Wish me luck!
