Soniya - My weight loss journey
Hello. Thanks for reading :-)
I'm Soniya. I'm 33 and this year is the year for me to become a healthier and happier me. I recently checked the scales and found that I'd gained almost a stone since October (when I last weighed myself). I now weigh 12st 7lbs. I also suffer from anxiety and depression which keeps me indoors a lot of the time as I get embarrassed having anxiety attacks in public but since I've started my clean eating regime I've not had one panic attack which is brilliant and I'm so happy.
I started on the 6th of January 2014. I've been using a mixture of VLCD packs, protein powder and clean eating (a few examples of clean eating for me include steamed or raw veg, protein cooked with no fats or salt, organic porridge, boiled brown rice, berries and fat free Greek yoghurt). I'm hoping that once I've lost a significant amount of weight I'll be able to move onto just clean eating with 2 reward meals a week where I can I eat anything I want but not not to go crazy overboard on junk.
I'm also doing 20 minutes of HIIT training (Josie Gibsons 30 second slim), joining my friend in walking/running with the dog during quieter times if I feel comfortable enough. I do Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. I'm doing strength training to ensure I tone. I do it at home using resistance bands and weights. I've also got the Bob Harper super strength DVD but I've only done the beginners workout as the main workout frightens me! Also, I'm on day 5 of the 30 day squat challenge. Ouch!
I will be weighing every week and measuring once a month.
So, as I've said, my weight is currently 12st 7lb and here are my measurements (I KNOW my measuring technique and words are a little weird I know but that's how I measure LOL LOL LOL)
Measurements 2014 - January 6th - in inches
Face (ear to ear)
Boobies (wearing blue bra -measure quite tight)
Belly button area (tightly measured)-
Wish me luck and good luck on your weight loss journey too.
Love Soniya xx
