This is going to be fun :D!

following my weight loss back in 2013-2014, I have regained all that I had lost. But I also gained a boyfriend which has now become my fiancee. Best guy ever! And for him my weight doesn't matter a bit. We are very in harmony with our body images.

But I decided that my wedding photos will be with me forever, so I would want to be a bit more skinnier than now so that my dress fits me better. I will have three types of wedding dresses, so I want to be chic and fashionable looking in those pictures.

I have put an aim of losing 10-15pounds until March 2018. I will post my thoughts, some funny ideas and some more private issues I face along the way. I have not dieted for ages so it is going to be an adventure :)!

Member Since: 9/10/2012

Fitness Minutes: 131

My Goals:
"To have 4 times of workout every week. Have a planned diet, with healthy snacks and not being hungry all the time." October 2012

"Now I have 5-6 days a week of exercise, with most of them full body workouts with strength training and 1 being just cardio. I am preparing myself for 10k run in June which I would never have thought of I could do. I am strongest, fittest I have ever been and want to be even fitter. I want muscle definition and no more wobbly fats" March 2013

My Program:
"I have bought a membership to a gym, with twice a week yoga classes, once aerobics and once spinning. In addition to that I will go to walk in countryside and learn to ski." October 2012

"I learned to ski finally :) and got pretty good at it with once a week training. I ended up going to gym more than I planned starting with 3 times a week and ending up with sometimes 6 times a week. I learned about nutrition so now I have balance of carbs, fat and protein in my every meal. I coach my friends to get healthy and support each other"

Personal Information:
I am 20 something woman living in UK doing my PhD degree. I have been yo-yo dieting since my high school and there were always bad periods of the year (when I was overweight) and good periods of year (when I was normal weight) in the last 10 years. Since I started PhD I understood that I may soon end up being obese, so I dieted for a while, but gained weight back again as much as I lost it. So this time I decided it is not a way to live and I need to make myself! :) and here I am 12kg lighter, being able to do 2 hours of non-stop full body exercise, run, lift heavy, press up and do 100 crunches.

    Aw, thank you. Yes I hear you. Winter in general I think is just a tough time for "slacking"...slowing up ...and for me I've had more head pain to boot recently, so I'm like GRR. I have been getting out for daily walks, and what helps is 2x a week doing my sets of pushups, mini arm thing haha. So even thoughl I'm rather "slugging" along too, I know I'm still going and doing the base line :) Its like just getting behind myself and pushing myself you know?! And I budge forward. lol. But we are keeping on! And it doesn't change the awesomeness factor of US!!! :D And fluctations are just life. Its not always high pie in the sky days haha. So keep on,,,even if you feel you are budging. You're are still the wonderful precious you and thats something to keep beaming about!!! emoticon emoticon

    thanks...its actually worse than headache..its pain located in my head triggered by many thing that normally wouldn't hurt. its called central sensization. Basically my system is hyper-sensitive making pain at times unbearable. October was most brutal out of last 5 months and for a couple months I was on so much pain meds, past 2 months have been rollercoastering trying new med & higher supplement dosage. So times of repreieve/lower pain and then crazy pain again. Not nice, but one foot in front of the other. Pressing on! thanks for your care & glad your headache is over! emoticon
