Restarting my weight loss journey....

Sunday, October 07, 2012

Hello everyone.. I'm VIN2309 and this is my first blog entry ever. Ok, so it's not the first time that I'm trying to lose weight. I've tried a lot to change my habits, but in vain. I always knew that I was overweight, but today, while filling in the information to be a member of sparkpeople, I realised that I'm OBESE emoticon .
I'm 23 years old. My goal is to be in a healthy BMI, which is between 43.3-58.5 kg in my case. I'm currently 74kg, which means that I have to lose a minimum of 15.5 kg. This will be tough. It's not an easy journey. I've already gone through it and I know there'll be many ups and downs. However, I'm determined to lose those 15kg.
I've never been thin or lean in my life. I've always been overweight. I want to lose those excess kg because I want to live a longer and healthier life, I don't want to die at a young age, I don't want health issues. I want to be able to climb the stairs without feeling tired. I want to be able to know what it is like being thin. More importantly,15 kg lighter, I want to see a CONFIDENT lady; someone I've never ever met in my life before. The list's too long. To cut it short, I want to be someone who's beautiful inside and outside.
I've decided to start writing blogs so that I'm accountable to everyone reading it. It'll be difficult to step back once I've posted it. And hopefully, I'll be getting a lot of support from those trying to lose weight like me.
Tomorrow is the first day of my weight loss journey. I've decided to exercise 5-6 times a week, for at least 1 hour. Moreover, I'll be having only 3 meals, with 2 healthy snacks, per day. This is my goal for 1 month, which'll start from tomorrow 7th October 2012-7th November 2012. Anyone who wants to join me is most welcome. I'll be cutting the goal into mini goals as I go on.
Thank you everyone for taking the time to read..

    Well done on starting! Although I’m a relative newcomer to SP, I’ve already found the community supportive and encouraging. There is so much information on here, including articles on nutrition, motivation, wellness and activities, recipes, blogs, teams and SparkPages. There is always something new to help keep you on track, and I’ve hardly scratched the surface! Good luck!
