Your probably wondering why i'm talking about weight loss when I talk about being happy with your body all the time and the truth is, while most of the time i'm OK with my body atm, I know I could be happier with it.I won't get it to things I have already talked about before, but as I have said I don't believe in attempting to lose weight unless your "feeling it". In my book, feeling it simply means you are feeling ready and motivated, even slightly excited about getting healthy and losing weight, as appose to the idea of no more pizza making you want to cry.
My weight has crept up over the past year, and while i'm not going to talk numbers here, not because i'm ashamed but because I think it prevents people from focusing on what this is about and I also don't want to encourage anyone to start thinking about their own weight in in comparison....not good idea. Anyway, I think my weight gain was due to a few factors such as my birth control and the boyfriend nights in which involve me cooking yummy and fattening meals for him, and them eating them myself (And then there is my crisp addiction, and my late night ice cream eating...but we won't go there.)And I have ended up gaining a pretty hefty amount of weight for my 5ft1 frame.
The majority of the cloths in my wardrobe don't fit me (none of my jeans) and it was starting to get me down because deep down inside me I knew my body, I know i'm NEVER going to be one of those girls who can eat whatever they like and stay slim, i'm just not. I knew I couldn't go on the way I was going, and that something needed to be done. I also find that working towards something is super helpful, and i'm going to a wedding in 2 weeks and I want to look good, and rock my size 10 dress. I have also spoken about this before but I find a looking at a photo of me when I was slimmer because I know it's something achievable to work towards. This is my photo of choice, this is what I want to get back too....
I have been on a "diet" as such, for just over a week now and on the first day I felt awful, but after I got past that part, I felt grate! I don't know how much I have lost because my scales are broken because they say that my 14 year old sister who is around 50kg weights 80kg but I can feel and see that I have lost it around my belly area (On a side note: Why does it always go off your belly and boobs? my belly is always semi-flat anyway, why does it not go from my arms and face?) I will film a video about what I have been eating but I have generally been sticking to cereal in the morning, brown bread with low fat cheese and salad for lunch, and home-made soup for dinner, and drinking plenty of water and green tea. I also been working out everyday, and feel much better for it.
I will keep you updated on here and be sure to watch out for my "what I eat" video if you like these kinds of posts.
