If you have read my blog in the past, you will probably know that I have been trying to lose weight for a while now. Unfortunately, I have not been successful. For that reason, I started going to a dietitian at my university, thankfully it is pretty cheap at my school!! This past Monday was my last meeting with her so I wanted to start blogging my weightless journey in order to have accountability. It would also be awesome if my journey could help someone pursue their journey as well.
So first my first post, I’ll give you some intro on where I am currently at and where I want to go. I will be posting about my journey every Monday. Enjoy!!
I am currently 22 years old, I’ll be turning 23 in August!! I am 5’2″ and currently I weigh 215 lbs. I have struggled with my weight since I was about 9 years old. At that time, it didn’t bother me much and I wasn’t too chubby but I was clearly gaining weight quickly. When I was 15 years old, I was diagnosed my PCOS. Some of you might know that PCOS makes it difficult to lose weight but it’s also not impossible.
When I started college I decided to get on WeightWatchers and I went from 160 lbs. to 135 lbs. I was super excited but I eventually gained it back and then some. My problem with weightWatchers was that it didn’t teach me how to eat healthy but just how to portion control. That is not to say that it is a bad program but I have found out that I need to learn to eat healthy foods instead of just control the portion of the unhealthy foods that I am used to eating.
There are two main reasons that I want to lose weight. The first is because I want to be healthy and not have to worry about the various diseases that come with being overweight. The second reason is because I want to look better. I don’t hate my body right now but I also know that I can look better and this is not the size I am meant to be. At times I don’t even feel like I am myself when I see my body.
I have a couple of goals that I want to achieve while on my weightless journey.
I want to meal plan successfully. I don’t mean that I want to prepare all my foods for the week on one day because I get grossed out by leftovers after the second day. I want to sit down once a week and plan all my meals on a journal and stick to those meals for the week.
I want to workout at least 5 times a week. Exercising is super important and it will help me tone my body. It will also help me have more energy.
Learn to love to eat healthy. This one is really important because I want to genuinely love healthy foods and not feel like it’s a drag to eat them.
My ultimate goal is for this to become my lifestyle because that will be the only to lose and maintain my weight. I hope you enjoyed my intro to my weightless journey.
Stayed tuned for Monday for more on my weightless journey. If you want me to post about anything in particular, let me know in the comments below.
