Hiiiiii! Not posted on here in ages. Sorry! Diet is going ok. Not weighed myself again as of yet. Gotta admit, I’m a little scared to. I have been starting everyday with a bowl of porridge. Cannot get enough of it at the moment. I love it. Been struggling a lot in the evenings and have often been going to sleep hungry, but I try and tell myself that once I’m asleep, when I wake up I can have porridge! Still not back at uni, but been fairly busy. Shopped A LOT. Cannot believe some of the deals I have got. Ordered a coat for a bargain £24 instead of £80. I have a feeling that it will be a little tight for me as well so I’m hoping that will be another incentive to lose some weight. I will be thin.
So far the diet has been terrible. I drank what I wanted on my night out and I got kebab and chips on the way home. I just feel like a massive fat failure. So annoyed with myself. And now because of that I’ve lost all motivation. Just really disappointed. Today I skipped breakfast, had sandwiches and chips for lunch and Frankie and Bs for tea. I shared a bag of skittles at the cinema.. I don’t even like skittles. I need to remember why I’m doing this and get motivated again because I have to do this. Don’t wanna be a fatty for life! I’m going to bed now, then back at the gym tomorrow to get back on track. I will be slim honest!
Just submitted my coursework! I guess I should be feeling relieved now, but I don’t. Some people have just submitted 2, 3, or even 4 pieces of coursework, I am one of the ‘lucky’ ones who has just submitted 1. Although that just means that in April, I have 4 pieces of coursework to submit (totalling 10,000 words), and a 10,000 word dissertation. I don’t go back to uni until the 28th of January so I guess I have no excuse to start now. That’s the plan anyway.
So back to day the weightloss. So far, so good on the food front. Cornflakes with semi-skimmed milk for breakfast and a glass of orange juice. Went to the gym, it was so so busy! Did about 50 mins consisting of treadmill, bikes, and cross-trainer, then I stepped on the scales… Basically I did the whole get fit thing last summer and managed to lose about 2 stone in 3 months, which was great until I put some back on again. I managed to get down to about 12 and a half stone. Still obese but a nice improvement. Anyway, now I am 13 stone 6 with an unhealthy BMI of 32.7. I need to get down to 10 stone 4 (max) to be classed as normal. I realise now that I lost weight too quickly over summer and that’s why I put it back on so easily. I am hoping to lose around 2lbs a week. I turn 21 in June which gives me 6 months to lose over 3 stone and maintain my new, healthy weight. I think that would have to be the best birthday present ever. So, that is my aim!!Also it’s my boyfriend’s 21st birthday on the same day, (yes we were born on the same day) so it would be lovely if we could have some pictures together where I don’t look like a ball with legs.
We have our first dilemna though. I have been invited out tonight to celebrate coursework submission. Now, I still am on my diet so I won’t be having a night off. I just really don’t know what I can drink. I’m thinking diet coke??? I don’t know. Anyway, I’ll let you know how that goes tomorrow.
For now, bye-bye
So, thanks to my iPhone, I am writing this in the comfort of my bed using the WordPress app. Not too shabby ay! What is that they say about small things and small minds?
Anyway, I’m starting my New Year’s resolution a little late this year. My coursework deadline is tomorrow and I had too much Christmas chocolate left over to start on time. Yes, you’ve probably guessed it. My New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. How many of us have said that before? Well I mean it, honest!
So, I thought blogging about my experience may help myself stay on track and any readers I may get (or not). I will probably blog about life in general as welll, but focus will be on my weight and hopefully my weightloss.
A little bit about me:
I’m 20 and a final year law student from Manchester, England. I’m 5ft 3 (and a half). A UK size 14-16. I would ideally like to be a trim size 10-12. I have a boyfriend of over 2 years. I’m half asian. I’m an only child. I live at home. I work weekends at a very busy, very reasonably priced retailers (any guesses?). I am fairly normal. I like food and eating out (hence the size I am). I like stationery (geeky confession). I also like shopping, cinema, music, tv. That’s pretty much me.
So, the plan for tomorrow is get up, get to the gym, weigh myself and the diet begins… And probably do some coursework.
Until then, good night.
