Brief introduction

As stated in my first post, I’m a 26 years old woman, who is seizing the day.  I’m making changes in my eating, thinking, behavioral patterns to transform my life. In this blog, I’m going to write about my efforts and experiences during the process.

I’ve struggled with binge eating all my life, when situations get out of control, I stuff myself with food. There was a particular habit that changed that, reading. I was an avid reader as a child but somewhere over the time adulting happened, I forgot my precious books. It might have been because I invested all my time in an abusive relationship.

After the relationship ended, I was broken ( mind, body, and soul). I gathered whatever pieces left of me and I moved to London. I fell in love with the city, and myself. The change of place was exactly what I needed. I met my kind of people (twin flames, soulmates), who helped to be the person I am today. London brought the best out of me, I felt all kinds of emotions- happiness, loneliness, betrayal, heartbreak,  shame, confidence, every single emotion listed in Aristotle’s book “Rhetoric”. It led me to back to my reading habit.

I firmly believe in “What you think, you become”. And after all those self-mastery books, that’s exactly what happened.  I started waking up at 4.30 am, practicing yoga and meditation, working out 6 days a week, taking up group dance classes ( something I’ve always wanted to do but lacked the confidence), weekly bar salsa, etc. My life was at its peak. Then I moved back home due to my family, and I was in square one,  yet again. I could say that this blog is me trying to get my mojo back. And I know, I already have.

I hope you find that teeny tiny bit of purpose to make that positive change in your life because only a little purpose is needed for a big change. Thank you for reading. Stay tuned for more.

Love

Hello you,

Nice to see you taking interest in my weight loss journey. A little bit about myself, I’m 26-year-old Woman, I currently weigh 120kg and my goal is to lose 15kg by 31st December 2017. I’ve been obese all my life. There have been several incidences where people have fat shamed, bullied, mocked me; I thought it was all related to the extra weight I carried, but it wasn’t.  I let them treat the way they treated me as I thought I deserved it. So, I started making changes to the way I thought about myself, treated my body right. However, the changes seem to be very inconsistent. Enough is enough, I said to myself, I did my research, analysed why all my previous efforts failed and came up with a plan to achieve my goal weight. So, I’ve started this blog as a reminder as to Why I wanted to do it in the first place, Welcome to my weight loss motivation journal. Stay tuned, for my diet and workout programme.

Cheers
