The 6 months that changed my life!


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, February 28, 2014

Woo! Hoo! It's 6 months now since I took the decision to change my life. Little changes in my daily life and mindset make dramatic change to my life.

The main changes were:

1- Trying to drink 8 cups of water daily. I'm still trying to do it every day.
2- Track my daily calorie intake. When I stop tracking daily I know that I will slip soon into a plateau.
3- Daily exercise at least 10 minutes. Usually it's 30 minutes or more. Now I enjoy exercise because it has positive effect on me emotionally and physically.
4- Trying to sleep early and wake up early. going to bed when it's late night makes me feel hungry and over eat at night.

The dramatic difference in my life:

1- I'm mid way of my happy weight.
2- I track what I eat most of the time even if I don't have the tools.
3- I'm much more active.
4- I love myself.
5- I'm confident enough to meet new people.
6- I'm proud of myself.

It's time to celebrate the feeling of "I crossed half my way". You know when you are on a long journey and feel like oh! now I'm nearer to my destination than where I start. When this happen you started to feel more comfortable and find it easier to reach your destination that returning back to the start line. emoticon

My goal was to:
1- Life a healthy life for 1 year. So if I can keep it for 1 year I can keep it forever.
2- Reach my happy weight 64 kg. Now I'm 80.8 kg. I lost 17 kg.

Now I'm sure that I can do it. Soon I'll say goodbye to the 80 kg club emoticon
Finally I'd like to thank all my spark friends for giving me their hands of support to stand up again and complete my way. Love you all emoticon

  What a wonderful, inspiring, well-written post! I've been on my "official" weight loss journey for about 6 months and I've been starting to slip. Your post reminds me that I am also at about the half-way point to my goal - so what am I complaining about!! I have to remind myself of all the good things I've been doing - like really making daily exercise a habit (like wearing a seat belt while driving). The good has far outweighed the bad. Thanks for the reminder to not be so hard on myself! Best wishes to you on your journey to a healthy life!

    Great job! I have at many times made goals & mostly achieve them, only to fall back into old habits. I have learned that as I get older, it is harder to drop the weight. I also allow things to distract me. Keep up the great job, hard work & God Bless you! emoticon
