Problems Revealed

Monday, June 17, 2013

Over the past few years things could definitely have gone better. I've been letting myself go since I was about sixteen and I've cared little about my diet since then. I don't think I've seen double digits on the scale since I was about that age, and I really want to get back down into that healthy weight range.

I'm not one for blogging daily or for actually blogging a lot at all but I do like to write a bit about my progress.

Yesterday was a bad day. I maxed my limits on almost everything, minus the calories, but it gave me a bit of an overview. I have discovered that fat is my problem when I put on weight. Sure, sugar was part of the problem and, combined with the fat, had me tipping the scales at 146kg when I was barely twenty. Since then I've lost a lot but I can't seem to get over that final hump and break myself down the last few kilograms that I need to lose.

Today, however, I managed to do much better. I am almost balanced with my intake of the Carbs, Fats and Proteins and I am finding that it is easier to keep things under control than it was before. Best of all, I'm not missing out (except for the things I'm purposefully denying myself until I know that I can control the portion sizes).

Good Luck to everyone else,

P.S. I would like to add a thanks and a hi to those who welcomed me on this page. It is nice to feel so welcomed and a part of this community.

    Hi Zee,
    Don't get discouraged about not getting over that final hump. Sometimes our bodies will get fixated at a certain set-point and it takes some time to readjust to the weight loss.

    I plateaued for almost a year when I started losing. I was stuck at the pounds where I maintained the longest before I gained the most. It seemed like that was where my body wanted to stay, but I knew I still needed to lose more.

    Congratulations on your progress so far.

    Sounds like you are doing great - balance is a tough act for me and I keep working at it. It sounds like you are making some good choices and learning about yourself in the process - congratulations on your progress.
