Beating the Bulge... once and for all
Hello, and welcome to my (hopefully) weekly diary charting my SW journey. :o
My name's Becca and this year I have made myself a promise, not a resolution, to take control of my body. I decided not to make a resolution because for all of my life I have not been able to keepthem, promises on the other hand I've yet to fail at.
I'm currently 22 years old and weighing in at 14stone 5lbs. Not my heaviest, but certainly at my most unhappy with my body.:( This year it's time to focus my mind and really work on becoming the adult I want to be. I have all of the resources at my disposal I am making the concerted effort this time around to stick to my guns and really work hard.
I began the SW EE diet on yesterday. In the past I have done it on my own, no groups, and switched between the Green days and Red days. So it's my first go at this new eating plan and I need to get out of the old habits of panicking that I'm mixing carbs and meat. I've set myself 10 syns a day, before I think I made it about 20 and even then would go over and make excuses. Not this time!! :D
I've put my target weight down at 12st 5lbs because I feel that's a feasible task. All too often I've said I want to lost 4stone in 4months (an impossible feat!) With any luck, I should make this 2 stone weight loss by my birthday in April. The last time I weighed that I was probably around 12 years old, so making the weight loss target my birthday should be quite the incentive!
That's all for now I think, I'll report back next week to let you know how the first week of a new eating plan has gone and whether i make my target of exercising 5 times this week. So far it's 1.
I hope you stick with me through this journey as I know I'll be needing as much help as I can get
Love and peace
