I’m feeling so excited and so inspired at the moment. Excited because this is my very first post, and with that excitement comes a little nervousness, because my journey to health has just gotten a lot more real. I’m going to put myself out there and share things about myself that I wouldn’t normally share. I’m excited to see how this will change my life and hopefully other lives too.
I’m feeling inspired because I haven’t really taken any notice of blogging up until a few days ago, and in my research of how a blog should be, I came across so really inspiring sites.
One of my favourites is Authentically Emmie and her weight loss progress, which you can take a look at here: http://authenticallyemmie.com/weight-loss-progress/ . She’s done an amazing job and I too hope that I can follow in her footsteps.
I’m not really one to share personal things about myself to others. It doesn’t matter how close I am to someone, for some reason I’ve always played my cards close to my chest.
So here I am, getting real, if you’ve had a look at my “About” Page already, you would’ve seem my little story and my weight loss experience so far but for the rest of you, here it is.
At my heaviest in October of 2015 I weighed 125.5kg (277 pounds) and today, I weigh in at 104.5kg (230 pounds). I think that I have gotten over the embarrassment of these numbers and now know that I have to do something about it, if I didn’t and continued to sit on my fat behind, then I’d be embarrassed. Apologies if the photos are a bit disturbing but this is me. Obviously not the person I was born to be but to keep me motivated and to hold myself accountable on this journey, I had to post this picture.
So to close out, I hope you join me on my journey. I’ll be keeping you updated with my progress and the different ideas that I’ve adopted along the way.
Hope you’re having an amazing day!!
