Hiiii everyone, I'm Pudge. For those of you who have been on minimins for a while, you may remember me from, Exante and Lipotrim.
I did quite well on those diets but I never fully committed, something was missing... motivation and someone to properly report too.
I have a lovely consultant and im excited to be on this journey with her support. It's so easy to give up on yourself when there is noone around to let down but yourself, there is always tomorrow.
Not this way.
I'm starting at 16stone 4lbs,,, by my consultants scales, i think its 16.7 on mine and going all the way to 9.7 which give me a BMI of 23 which I was told was good.
It's going to be a long process, but at this stage, I really have no choice. I have done everything, and failed and I'm finished with being that person. I have a life to live and I have plans,, and those plans dont include an overweight person, and those plans wont go ahead unless I am healthy.. So lots of pressure.
I'm currently doing a masters and working, so I'm very busy which will be good for this life change. I have a festival the first week of September and I hand in my thesis on the 30th of August, so I'm hoping beyond hope that I can get to goal by then or a bit before.
Perfect excuse to do this now because I'm going to be a bit of a recluse with all my school work anyway.
Im just a little worried about the socialising part of it. I'm not a crazy night out person right now but I do love a couple of glasses of wine when i'm out for dinner or visiting friends, but sure, don't we all.
Change is here and i'm just going to deal with it.
I'm going to wait a couple of weeks for some results to show before I tell anyone exactly what I'm doing, but I have told people that I'm not drinking, so hopefully no pressure.
So yeah, this is my diary, where I will be ranting and raving about the diet and how I feel, and hopefully it may inspire some people to start a life change of their own!
