For the past 18 months or so my body and I have not been getting along very well. Some time around November 2013 I gave up on my body. I don’t know what exactly made me do it, but I just gave up.
By saying that I gave up I mean I no longer watched what I eat, which to be honest, I never truly did, but I did have a very healthy relationship with food before then. So when I gave up I started to eat as much as I liked and barely exercised. As someone who suffers from digestive problems, this was bad news. The end result? I have gained almost 10 kilos and my skin is not looking as good as it once was.
Through all of last year I made small efforts to loose the weight and get back to the way I was but I knew I wasn’t mentally ready to do so. It didn’t help that I was also working at a place where I would spend 10 hrs sitting down in front of a computer. So this year I have decided that I have had enough. I can’t no longer lie to myself and pretend to be happy with the new body that I have because I am not. I don’t hate it, but I know I can do better. It is also not only about the way I look but how I feel- being sick 2 days out of every week is not cute.
I feel like by posting this in here, I am making a very public announcement about what I am about to do, and this is fine, because to be honest, I need the push. I will posting about how I am getting on and what things I will be doing. All the ups and down will be noted down here, and I hope to meet people who are also on this path.
To start off, tonight I am starting a fitness class which is run by one of my Hub’s friends and it takes place every Monday at 8pm. I have signed up for 6 weeks so let’s see how I get on tonight!!
Until Next Time!!
