Radooga, but you can call me Debs. x

Hi, my name is Debs. I started this journey mainly for health reasons (blood pressure in particular), with a little vanity thrown in for good measure (I have so many nice clothes that I just don't fit into!)

One month on, 16.5 lbs lost, exercise most days, mood excellent, motivation off the charts, food choices all good! Best of all, blood pressure is normalising, I'm sleeping better and feeling invincible. I know that bad days and setbacks will happen, but this time, I feel ...
Hi, my name is Debs. I started this journey mainly for health reasons (blood pressure in particular), with a little vanity thrown in for good measure (I have so many nice clothes that I just don't fit into!)

One month on, 16.5 lbs lost, exercise most days, mood excellent, motivation off the charts, food choices all good! Best of all, blood pressure is normalising, I'm sleeping better and feeling invincible. I know that bad days and setbacks will happen, but this time, I feel ready to just get back on the horse and keep trying. The support from the people here is amazing, and keeps me not only accountable, but also motivated and focused.

Three month update: 30lbs lost, feeling better physically, and mentally, although struggling a little with coming to terms with losing weight. The answer is exercise (usually no matter what the question!), to make me actually FEEL slimmer, I need to get past an injury I have and just GET ON WITH IT!

Five month update. 33lbs lost, so not a huge jump, but I'm fine with it slowing down, letting my brain gradually re-focus on not being so large. Back in the exercise groove too. Might try some new exercises this week, and I'm still working on planks and push-ups, being pretty hopeless at both, I now see it as a personal challenege to get really, really good at it! And then I have promised myself that if I do, I'll do a vlog. That should be 'interesting'!

Thank you for commenting on my blog! Of course you can add me as a friend! It gets pretty hot here, around 38-40C regularly! It is so utterly miserable, words can't really describe it. When the car dies I'm going to make my dad lend me his car to drive. He carpools to work, so he doesn't even drive his that much. The hot weather is the biggest problem when it comes to walking in my town. Otherwise, we're really spread out. My school is almost 10km from my house, so it's not really a walking distance.

Oh no...pictures? Current ones? It's pretty dreadful and I'm ashamed of them. It's a solid idea though....I will try to work up the nerve.
