I am back… it’s been what? 6 months or so?
I have had a VERY hard time getting my life together after losing my dad, I feel like I’m having a minor break down everyday.
But, I need to get healthy, my dad wouldn’t want me to spend my life eating my way into an early grave, he would like me to be happy and healthy.
So with that in mind I am dedicated to being the person I know I can be.
I have a target of 100lbs for the year, that’s just under 2lbs in a week.
This should be more than achievable, so far so good…. but we are just 4 weeks in.
wish me luck….
At least there is one thing as of late the weather has been beautiful!
Getting back into the habit of going to the gym, as and when I can.
I have stopped my meetings at WW (in an attempt to save some monies) but I am continuing online only. This means my scales have changed back to the ones I had at home and as I put on weight…
I am 317lbs! that is 22st 9lbs…
Slowly going back up to where I started in Feb last year and I really don’t have an excuse for it. Depression and crap and just generally not looking after myself.
I’ve emptied my wardrobe of everything that doesn’t fit me, too big and it’s off to the charity shop, too small and it’s gone into a bag under my bed, out of sight, out of mind. (or so they say) the idea is if the there is next to nothing in my wardrobe and I cannot afford to buy new clothes then I need to look after myself.
And by that I also mean make myself accountable for everything that I do.
I will now be updating this site at least twice a week as I need to keep on top of things which means saying no when the girls at work suggest a McDonald’s Breakfast Wrap in the mornings (omg they taste so good!!!) No more trips to McDonald’s around the corner from house either…
Time to make myself accountable!
So here I am updating my blog for the first time in over 2 months (as it was pointed out to me… sorry 😦 )
So what’s been happening? I’ve been working long days and experiencing some issues that I believed were resulted in my hospital stay in September.
I’ve been going to WW meetings, actually being weighed by other people is scary, but I’m going, and still going, I had a few slip ups and I think that was stress, so in all I’ve lost 3lbs in the last 6 weeks, I know it isn’t much but it’s something.
I saw my neurologist on Wednesday who thinks I’m suffering migraines which is causing all the issues i’m having so, i’m being put on medication for that. I’m so relieved. I can finally put my mind at rest.
So… This is just a quick update to say I am still here and still working on things.
And to celebrate spring… “Bikini body here I come” hahaha
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Here we are a new year, ready for a new start.
2016 ended in a much better way than any previous year I had been on a diet… so I ended 2016 21lbs lighter than I started it. This for me is a win as I usually start the next year having put on weight.
Now the end of the year didn’t go as planned but now here I am ready to absolutely kick ass!!
I’m back at the gym, I’m smashing my 11,000 steps a day goal.
I have realised my days off I just want to sit around doing nothing, this will have to change… so lots of getting off my bum on days off…
2017 is what I can make of it…
Here I am… the week before Christmas and I’m back! New job has started. I’m on my 5th week and currently LOVING it…
the downside? The food… Biscuits, Muffins, Cakes… so much yumminess and too weak to resist!!! Okay so let’s bring everyone back up to speed here…
I have but on weight. I’ve gone back up to 307.5lbs as of last Sunday. I have entered a weight loss competition with my Sister… for the time being we are going over the next 8 weeks and the winner will get £10 from each person (£20 to go in a savings tin) then after that we are going to WW Meetings… (actual meetings, with people and everything… *Gulp*) then the winner of each fortnight gets £10 from each, again to go into a pot… after 6 months we’re opening tins and going shopping! (hopefully for new clothes cause well skinny(er)
That’s about all I can add for today… I will update on or around Next Sunday with the next weigh in installment…
This time I’m back for good…
(I’m sure my friend will keep me in check to update from now on lol)
