Today I’m starting the Fast800/BSD – 7 Jan 2018.
I have tried (not that hard) and failed numerous times in the last 7 years to lose weight. Now my unhealthy lifestyle is starting to impact my life. I am the heaviest I have ever been – weighed in this morning at 106kgs. That is 10 kilos heavier than what I was at 9 months pregnant with my second child (gasp ugghhh). I’ve just had a holiday with my husband and kids at the beach – I couldn’t keep up with them or play with them on the sand. My feet hurt because I am so heavy and I think it is starting to affect my tendons in my ankles? I was mortified at what I look like in a pair of bathers – I have become that fat person on the beach.
So, things have to change and it is starting today. I’m going to the DR shortly to get my blood tests done and blood pressure checked – I know it won’t be a good story. I think I will be ok with the food but my biggest challenge is going to be giving up wine and champagne. It has become my crutch – I have a reason everyday as to why I need a glass or two or three of wine. So, my first AFD today in quite some time. I know my liver will thank me for it 🙂
I have a very busy job that requires a lot of entertaining and travel – it will be a challenge to change my habits but I am really going to try and do this. I know my husband supports me but I can see that he thinks this will be yet another failed attempt – I intend to prove him wrong!!!
I’m going to post each Monday with a results check-in. I need to do this to keep myself accountable.
I would love for anyone to comment, give advice etc
My goals: I want to be healthier; I want to lose 36 kgs and get back to my pre-baby weight of 70kgs; I would like to be able to run 5kms again (aiming for middle of the year on this one); I want to feel good about myself and I want to be able to play with my kids at what ever activity they are doing.
My 12 week weight loss goal is: 15 kgs. So, at the end of this I want to be 91 kgs or less.
My measurements (a bit scary):
Bust – 45 inches
Around my middle (Belly button) – 41 inches
Widest part (butt) – 53 inches
So, here goes – a new me for 2019 and forever.
