I have been looking at this website for so long thinking everyone else is doing so well and that I must be able to do it too!
So im 23 and in my final year of uni, over the past 6/7 years I have put on over 6 stone. This has mainly been due to drinking and student food! I went away to college at 16 and since then I have been living the student lifestyle of nights out, takeaways and hangover food.
Every now and again i try and be good but it only lasts for a few days until temptation kicks in! I live with two other girls. One girl can eat whatever she likes and stay a size 10. The other is a size 16 and also struggles with her weight. We will try and diet together but it never works as one of us always caves in and then the other gets tempted haha!
I joined the gym two weeks ago and have been a couple of times with friends so far. However, they are not as keen as me to go and I hate going on my own because I feel so self concious!
I have decided that from today I will eat no more than 1500 calories a day and cut down any student nights out to vodka and diet coke. I am going to aim to go to the gym every other day, and the days which I dont go I will use the exercise bike at home!
My first goal is to lose 1 stone before I visit my boyfriends house for new year so that gives me roughly 6 weeks! If anyone has managed this, or is trying for a similar amount please let me know! Tips or motivation would be great.
So far in the past two weeks I have been trying to watch what I eat and when I weighed this morning I was 16 stone 3, so 3 pounds down on two weeks ago!
