I woke up feeling lacklustre. The reality of the doom and gloom that starts today hit me like a ton of bricks. For the women out there that don’t have an issue with weight, this dramatic feeling will be lost on you, but for the rest of us, trying to part ways with all things delicious feels like I have been given a death sentence.
That being said, I am committed to making a change and the forthcoming posts detailing my “transformation” (of my mindset largely) will be honest and sincere. I don’t forsee this challenge as being easy in any way and whilst I can overcome and do just about anything, THIS has really been a struggle for years with a complete lack of willpower on my part.
So, as promised, my stats are as follows. GULP. The Horror.
Height – 1.74
Weight – 69.8 kgs (NO I WILL NOT ROUND IT OFF TO 70!) My BMI says I fall into the “normal” range – however my fat is centred around my stomach, arms and thighs (so everywhere in other words-except my legs).
So the goal is to lose at least 4 kgs for this month, but more importantly, it is to exercise faithfully, eat correctly, stop eating junk food/processed food altogether 😦 and make informed, healthy decisions for the future.
So I have my work cut out for me, and I am reluctantly ready for the challenge. I know there will be tough days and I already have serious withdrawal symptoms (which are all psychological) – but I am committed. So watch this space.
