kilos

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.

I can’t even.. I just.. the times I’ve googled “easy weightloss”, “how to lose weight fast”, “exercise for overweight people”, “how to lose 10 pounds”.. I found my way, and it’s worked so far.

This gives me the energy to keep going and hopefully reach my goal.

Getting back into the healthy routine

After getting two surgeries done in 2017 – and now almost done with the pains after them, it’s time for me to get back into the healthy lifestyle I had going for fall 2016.

  1. Go to the gym again (at least twice a week)
  2. Weigh myself once a week
  3. Eat 1600 kcal each day (plus my 700 extra each week)
  4. Go on a daily walk

WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY #3 – What I eat

As you might have read in my earlier posts about the subject Part #1 and Part #2, it was hard for me to get into the habits of healthy eating instead of eating lots of candy and generally buying unhealthy foods.

But first, 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. I’m still a work in progress also, so my ways might change as time passes.

My big weakness is candy, chips (crisps) and white bread – amount with pizza and burgers. (more…)

Weight loss journey #1

I am usually not one to talk about weight – at all.. I’ve always been on the heavier side, and always felt like someone might make fun of me for it. No one ever actually has though – and I’m so thankful for that!

But April 2016 I found out that my teeth and the way I bite is very bad, and that it will require fixing, first with braces and then surgery. A surgery which they wont perform unless my BMI came into the ‘normal’ category. In my case, it meant that I would need to loose 25 kgs, needing to go from 103 kgs to 78 kgs. (more…)
