I thought id do something a little bit different today. Something a little more close and personal to me.
I have always mainly struggled with my weight and my perception of what ‘good’ looks like. Still to this day I look at photos of myself and I am not happy with my body.
those who keep track on what I do in my day to day life, I have recently been on a diet. Since the beginning of January I had lost 11lb. Which I was extremely please about, then I let myself go and put on 5lb. And a question I always ask myself is why did you let yourself do that?
I constantly battle with my weight and I have since I was younger, I was quite a big girl when I was younger and then as I got older I lost a lot of weight and ended up being a size 4-6, I was tiny.
Fast forward a few year I put on a lot of weight mainly from contraception and as soon as I got it removed I lost weight. It’s always been a yo-yo but now I’m the biggest I’ve ever been.
i know I’m not the only one to have struggled losing weight but this is what I’ve learnt so far on my journey.
its okay to have bad days or even weeks but you’re the only one who can pick yourself up not anyone else.
you need to learn to love your body the way it is.
Everyone has insecurities and everyone has flaws.
Ive had two bad weeks and I’ve put on 5lb but I know that I can lose that again! Don’t ever give up, keep going because you will see results in the end.
Don’t just use scales, take photos you can see a lot more progress via images than scales telling you a number. Also try using a measuring tape as you could be losing inches .
I am still continuing on my journey but I will take every day as it comes, I’m not going to push myself too far.
i will be doing another post very shortly on my progression from when I started and will continually do updates and show you what I do and what works for me.
