For lack of a better picture I opted for a selfie
I don’t remember anything under a size 14, and this is something I drastically want to change. I am a very ‘all or nothing’ kind of person, and find it difficult to stick to a healthy eating plan for that very reason; one little slip up and I am off the wagon completely. Now as per usual my new year’s resolution was to give weight loss another go, but having a nasty tooth extraction and infection has delayed me a little. Now that I am healthy I have no excuse, and am eager to get started again.
Usually I would try to follow Slimming World or Weight Watchers, but I am thinking of trying another approach; my fitness pal. My fitness pal is a website/app where you can track what you eat and it keeps track of your calorie/fat/carb intake, amongst other things. I am tired of having rules, and just want to try and set my own for a change by making better decisions. My main issue is boredom eating, so I am also going to try and keep myself as busy as possible.
I was inspired to blog about my journey from the #BloggersWLW tag on twitter, where people post about their weight loss journey on a Wednesday. Every Wednesday I will post an update on my weight loss journey, whether it be good or bad, and what I have learnt along the way. Previously I have managed to lose over a stone, but then something will always come along and rain on my parade. I have so much more motivation this time around: I’m engaged, going to university in September and going on a girly holiday in August. I can’t put this off any longer!
So I’m hoping that I’ll get the support of a lot of you at #bloggerswlw and I will definitely return the favour; let’s have 2014 be OUR year! I’m starting at 13st 3lbs, and am aiming for a 4lb loss in my first week. (You tend to lose more in your first week!)
Thanks for reading lovelies!
