Since starting this diet…

At the start of 2015, I remember weighing myself in at over 13.5st. I am now 11.8st.

Since getting my dress measured I have lost 2.5′ off my hips and 2′ off my waist.

Exercising and eating healthy is addictive. You feel great when you do your squats, go for your walk, do your leg lifts or whatever, and you feel your muscles hurting and cramping up, but you keep going because its working and the more your work at it the better the results and that’s the cycle you get hooked on. The more your muscles hurt the harder you want to train, and that marathon-lenght walk turns into your morning routine.  You constantly try to outdo yourself; go for longer…do more…go faster.

The days I can’t go for a walk, I can be found randomly around the house with my mat doing lunges or planks or lying on the sofa doing my leg lifts. I have never gotten hooked on exercising. It’s has literally become my drug.

I have this mental picture in my head of what I want my body to look like. It’s a slow progress but I’m getting there and I’m slowly seeing the body I once loved and sweating has become the best feeling in the world, feeling the trickle roll down my spine is no longer revolting, but makes me feel alive.

Week – by – week goals

I know this may seem crazy, but because I have the wedding as an end date I think it’s really going to push me to get out the door and hit the streets a lot more. Each Sunday, I’m going to go to my dad’s and weight myself [he’s got a better scales].

Any fitness fanatics want to give me some tips?

Starting Weight : 29/3 = 165lbs / 74.7kg / 11.7st
5/4 = 159lbs / 72.393kg / 11.4st
12/4 = 154lbs / 69.853kg / 11st
19/4 = 151lbs / 68.583 / 10.8st
26/4 = 145lbs / 66.430  / 10.4st
3/5 =  140lbs / 63.5kg / 10st

My Weight Goals

I’m not exactly fat, but I’m not exactly skinny either. But I wouldn’t dare wear anything revealing my stomach or even a nice top that shows off everything. I want to be happy with myself, you know? I want to have a tight, fit body. That I can happily wear whatever I want and I know I look good.

I want to get down to 9stone 13lbs. Just because it looks like a healthy weight. I haven’t been below 10 stone since I was like 12. I also want to see if losing weight will make my boobs go down, because right now I’m  a 34FF [I know they’re not gigantic, but I’d like to be a C or D].

I also have this wedding in two months. I would love to be able to go in to get my dress and be told that I’m so much smaller than when I first got measured. I also want to look good in the photos because they’re going to be around for the rest of my life.

So, starting this week I’m going to try and walk twice-a-day, one in the morning at 7am and one at night at 9pm. I’m only going to drink water and tea without sugar and snack on porridge and fruit, no more chocolate or crisps or takeaways. If it goes well, I’m going to start being more healthy with my food choices and everything about myself.
