I’ve actually lost 30 pounds!

I just.. wow. Ohmffghgg.. That’s a big number! I mean.. 30. Thirty pounds.

Yes. Yes! YES!

I hadn’t actually understood that before. I’m smiling right now. Realising that I’ve done this. I’ve made this happen. I’ve… I’ve actually lost 30 pounds off of my body weight.

I’m…. I’m proud of myself. That’s a hard thing for me to say, but right now it is true. I am proud of myself.

Weight loss journey #2 – Losing the first 5 kgs

First of all a disclaimer. I wanna say that I’m not an expert on any of this. I’m not educated and the only experience I have is what I’ve felt on my own body, heard from others and read online.  

But I wanna share what I did. As I said in my post Weight Loss Journey #1 I’ve gone from 103 kgs to 90 kgs now. I started May 2016 – and got to 90 kgs December 2016. Since then, the last two months has been “quiet”. I haven’t gained, but I also haven’t lost anything. The reason being that I allowed myself a break for christmas, and the fact that I’ve been sick and overcoming minor surgery in January. Now though, it’s time to get back to business.

For this post, however, I wanna share what worked for me. This post will be the beginning. Later I will post more about the progress. (more…)
