So in like 15 minutes, January will be over, so how do I feel?
I am so fucking glad. January is never a good month for me, it is almost always a month of failed resolutions and disappointments. This January I’ve had exams, I haven’t done that well with my weightloss and everything, and I mean, it’s been okay, but not what I’d hoped. Anyways, it’s a brand new months. No exams this month. I can focus on my weight loss and exercise a little more. So, I feel good for next month at the moment. Glad that January is gone at least! X
Awfully enough, I have always been overweight. For ever and ever. There were points where I was actually officially obese, stepping on the Wii Fit, and seeing that was NOT a highlight. Anyways, at my lowest weight, 137lbs, I was literally a pound away from being “healthy” but a pound away still doesn’t count. So, my goal has been 136 for a very long time, but I haven’t reached it yet. So although I don’t particularly want to be underweight I certainly don’t want to remain overweight, and I cannot wait for the day when I can say that I have never been this small, and that every new pound I reach, is lower than I’ve ever been before, So yeah. Always always overweight, I’m afraid.
Is there any specific event you want to lose the weight for?
Well I do want to generally lose weight, just for general. But I do want to lose weight for prom, which is July 3rd, and my 16th birthday, is 8th June. So those probably are my dates, but to be honest, I would like to be at my goal before then.
Well I try to, to a certain extent, I mostly have just workout videos, and use the internet and youtube etc. I do walk for like a hour a day, but I would so not call that working out. Before Xmas I would probably do like 2 or 3 twenty minute workouts a week, which I know is really really minimal, and since Xmas I’ve been really bad, since I’ve had exams and stuff, yes I know that’s an excuse, and I have a treadmill in the house, so I can hardly use that excuse. Anyways, so I really don’t work out enough at all. I really want to start running, and I want to run the local 10K in May, but that’s right before my exams, so there might be some problems with that, but I do want to do something near that time, in June I will have finished all of my exams and then I could do something then. Anyways, I want to start running, hopefully today or tomorrow. Wish me luck! Xx
Do you count calories? What is your daily calorie goal/allowance?
No, I don’t count really calories. Partly because I’m really bad, but also because I don’t think that’s the best idea, it can lead to unhealthy thinking and stuff, and I put my mental health before my weight. I use calories to decide if something’s “worth it” and to decide if I should get low fat options etc, and I’ll always look, but I don’t count them. I try to just be sensible, and eat reasonably healthy things. If I’m finding it hard to lose weight then I might count for a while. I do have a phone app, which allows me to count, and I’ve been using it for about a week, but I don’t normally, and I don’t go crazy if I go over 1250, which is my net goal. According to that, I usually eat around 1300-1500 calories a day, so it’s certainly not low. But I am happier eating 1400 calories a day, and losing a pound a week, than eating 500 calories a day, and losing three. I’m happy with the way I decide to lose weight and eat. X
Just Binged. Well, not much I can do now, except drink water, go to sleep and then do well tomorrow. One day is not going to define my weightloss, I still feel like shit though. Why do I always do this?
