I’m not some kind of success story that you should be taking advice from. I’m just a girl on my own weight loss journey. I’m starting this blog for my own sake. I think the research into the “why?” will help me as well as having all my recipes and tips in one place to remind me of how to do this.
I’m hoping my blog will also help others so that’s why I’m putting it in a public forum.
Since finishing high school in 2010 I’ve lost 16kg but then put some on and then lost some and then put some on again. That’s just how it goes. I joined a gym about eight months after finishing school, lost some weight; started cutting out some shit of my diet, lost some more weight; tried various detoxes and diets, lost more weight, put more weight on and now I’ve joined a new gym I feel much more comfortable at and I’m giving clean eating a shot.
So far so good… I went to Bali in July this year (2012) and leading up went to the gym 4-5 times a week and ate strictly according to clean eating. Since that’s come and gone I’ve lost my motivation, struggling to drag myself to the gym twice a week and constantly eating things I know I shouldn’t. I get depressed about my weight so I’ve made the pledge to stop weighing myself and focus more on a look.
This is my new motivation and I’m sure as hell hoping it works.
I’m not studying and my long term dream is to open a cafe with my boyfriend who I’ve been head over heels about since we were 17 and 19. He’s my rock. The one who always tells me how beautiful I am when I’m down and the one who I never believe.
I live at home with my mum, my boyfriend and my precious doggy and shithead cat, who I love. Soon my mum will be moving to Metung with her fiance, my dad will be moving to Harrietville with his partner and my brother to Perth with his girlfriend leaving Shaun and I in Melbourne with my mums house. I’m very lucky for that. I still feel like a kid who’s life hasn’t started. I’m wondering when all that’s going to change.
