It has not been 1 kg a week unfortunately and throughout I realised that life gets in the way of my "dieting". So I just have to adapt it to whatever it is I am up to. At times I was able to loose 2 kg in one week. Other times just 500 grams in a week. My main obstacle have been my friends and family wanting to eat out or snack in front of the TV. I do not exactly want to expose the fact that I am dieting. So it becomes evermore challenging to say "no".
In spite of all that I have managed to loose 6 kg. I have to say that although I still have a long way to go (18.2 kg more), the weight I lost so far serves as an example that I can in fact do it. If I can so can others !!!
I am a new law graduate, looking for a job, interning here and there, traveling Europe, meeting new friends. I always put off my diet to "tomorrow" or to " it is NOT the RIGHT time". Here is my second realisation: "there is no such thing as the right time". From one day to the next I called a dietician, scheduled an appointment and went to see him. He asked me whether I could agree with the plan he proposed. I said "Yes".
With every fibre of my being I meant "Yes". It was going to be expensive (200 euros a month) because I am on xenical but I was TIRED of the way I lacked energy, I compared myself to others and just how I felt. A week after my first appointment, I started my diet.
Today, I refuse to give up. There is no way I will let go of the path I am in despite the ups and downs. Here is a little lesson: "If you cannot do it by yourself, don't be ashamed to ask for help"
The second help I asked for was a personal trainer (sport). He trains me twice a week, we do cardio and light exercises to build my endurance and gain some muscle while burning fat. At first, It hurt. My whole body hurt. But, it has been 4 weeks now, I feel silly and exhausted during the exercises but the next days I am in heaven. My body feels healthier, I sleep better and my skin is gorgeous after all the sweating.
To conclude, yes it is difficult, no I cannot do it by myself, yes I still have soooo much weight to loose but no I will not give up.
I wish Strength and Courage to all those on a quest to a healthier and better person.
Love and Light
