So, I'm 18, I'm a student, and I'm drastically overweight. The thing that may set me aside from other people my size is that I have never let it effect me, or anything that I want to do. I go out partying with my friends, and I really have had this 'let people think what they want' attitude. My problem is that, although this is quite a nice attitude to have, it's actually really hindering my ability to lose weight - and keep it off. It's harming my health, and I need to stop being so ignorrant and realise that I actually do need to beat the bulge.
So, here it is, day one. (AGAIN). Only this time, it's going to be my very last day one. I have 8 stone, 9lb to lose in total. This time though, I'm going to look at it in weekly steps.
Previously, I've dieted on 1500 calories, but in reality, with the amount I have to lose, my height and the fact that I aim to exercise 3 times a week, I could have 2000 calories a day and still lose my target of 2lb a week.
If anyone has any tips or anything to contribute, please do!
So far, I've had an oats so simple with semi-skimmed milk today, and half a banana (not a big fan!). I'm going to go to Tesco in the village in a mo and grab some bottled water and some emergency supplies (low cal items for when I'm desperate).
Oh, I also forgot to mention that I go back to university next week, where I'm fully catered. I have no excuse really, as long as I can beat the temptation I have 3 healthy meal options a day!
Good luck to anyone reading!
