Hello everyone. Welcome to my new blog focusing on losing weight.
I have battled with weight my entire life. at 37, I am now at my heaviest, I have gone a little over 200 pounds, for my UK readers, I am 16 stone, right now I am going to weigh myself, and will let everyone know how much I weigh. ok, here goes, I will step on the scales, I am so nervous becauseI know I’ve been doing bad for weeks now.
drumroll maybe 🙂 ok…
I am in shock. I weigh 228 pounds, that’s 16.29 stone, or 103.3 kg.
Something needs to change and now! Quick! I am so unhappy with how I look.
The good news is I have a treadmill at home. So now to my goals
log all of my food in a food diary
exercise for 30 minutes per day
drink at least 2 litres of water a day
eat plenty of fruit and vegetables
Try to do some mindful breathing and meditation
Choose foods that are lower in fat and more of a healthy choice
try to cut out tea and coffee, this one is hard, but maybe I can cut down on them instead of cutting them entirely out.
Stop eating candy and sugary foods, like cookies, and cake.
try to improve my sleep so my energy levels go up during the day.
I have been going to a nutritionist. I stopped going to her in march. I think its time I picked that back up again. I’ll call her tomorrow and make an appointment to see her.
the new me starts from tonight. My goal is to lose 2 pound a week, any more will be a bonus.
Would love it if all of you would follow and give me encouragement. I’ll be posting stats and recipes, and journal entries about my workouts etc.
Hoping to meet like minded people here who are on a similar journey.
