My Weight Loss Journey – From 81 to 68 kg & still going!

my weight loss journey

I have been struggling with my weight loss since like always and it wasn’t until 4 years ago that I realized I was eating junk and not consuming any healthy calories that my body actually needed.

 

 

I’m telling you, I was never a fan of milk or any other fruits and vegetables for that matter. I just never thought I needed them in order to Live, you know. (What was I thinking?) :/

 

 

Well, my lack of activity also played a great role in my weight gain (but my diet was the most important thing)

 

 

My skin was in a terrible condition which everyone told me it happens during teenage to everyone but well, I’m 21 now.

 

It was after my college that I started to read about weight loss on the internet and it TOTALLY changed my perspective. Who says internet is only for watching Pretty Little Liars on Netflix? 😉

 

I realized that what I eat is what I look like. My skin was just a reflection of my inner self.

 

 

It is since then, that I’ve been on this mission to change my skin and body the healthy way.

 

Success!

I had a huge success in the first year, I lost probably 17 kg (from 81 to 63 kg) WOW me!! It felt amazing There was no stopping seriously. I was committed for almost 18 months

 

BUT I don’t know what happened, I just stopped everything. I just wasn’t determined. I was not able to exercise continuously. I lost my focus. I’ve been struggling damn hard since. I feel week. Have lost all the confidence I had.

 

And I know I got all the knowledge. Trust me! when it comes to Weight loss or health I can speak without distraction. But still I just can’t get up and change myself :/

 

 

I know nobody else can change that for me, I’m responsible for this and I gotta straighten myself up.

 

 

I still make excuses like I’m a student I should be concentrating in that then will focus of weight loss later OR I’m a student and a blogger that’s more important.

 

 

At the end of day, I know I’ve wasted another day and I could’ve easily walked like half an hour.

I’m gonna continue what I’ve started

It’s February 2016 and I can’t let another year of my life goes by without achieving this goal this year. I won’t have the confidence in myself to achieve another goal that I set out for myself.

 

 

I’ve followed Stefan’s blog Project Life Mastery for a long time now and truly he’s an inspiration . His words are energizing. I Love reading his blogs, listening to his videos. He encourages me in many goals I have for myself.

 

100 Reasons for my Weight Loss  Goal

As an exercise, Stefan discussed in a video(How To Get Motivated RIGHT NOW), was to write all the reasons why achieving a certain goal was important to me? He asked to write down on a piece of paper 100 reasons for each goal.

  1. It’s really easy to fall off the don’t wagon and struggle to carry on. I did really well for a time too, then I got stressed and stuck and despite knowing what I should do, I’ve still not been able to do it properly!

    1. happens to everybody. Been like that for last couple of months. Telliong myself lame excuses. But at the end of the day I’m losing my health.
