The Beginning of the Loss

So IĀ got fat. I didn’t notice what I was eating, and I’m still not used to not doing exercise regularly (I hate knee injuries). Exams caused me to snack (A LOT). So many factors, so little exercise.

I am a tall human as well. I’m about 6ft tall (182cm?) but I have crept up to over 15 stone (98kg?). Both fortunately and unfortunately because of my height, I didn’t notice the weight gain as its spread over a larger area.

This is me as of the 29th of January 2016. I am not pleased. (Look at that snazzy split mirror thing that my flatmate put up)

 

BUT I HAVE A PLAN

As of the 30th of January 2016 I have started

  • 30 day Ab Challenge
  • Walking more
  • Going Vegetarian 3 days a week
  • Swimming 3 times a week

Alongside this, I have given up

  • Sweets
  • Chocolate
  • Crisps
  • Takeaway (limited to once every two weeks max this INCLUDES drunk food)
  • Bread (My love for bread is strong, who doesn’t love a sandwich??)
  • Cheese (This is the hard one, I love cheese, all cheese, every cheese. CHEESE!)

 

The idea of all this in theory will push me to reduce my snacking, which got out of control during exams, and become the slightly slimmer human that I used to be.

I aim to put up weekly photos with a list of what I’ve done, in an attempt to encourage myself.. So hopefully there will be progress!
