I was initially devastated and daunted by the prospect of having to lose over 100lbs to reach a healthy BMI weight... After a few calculations I have decided that it is an entirely possible thing for me to do!
With a lot of determination and will power I can do it!
There are 46 weeks until my 23rd birthday. If I lose 2.5lbs a week for the next 46 weeks I will be under 14 stone for my birthday and I should have a completely healthy BMI. I expect that I will be slimmer than I have ever previously been - what could be a better birthday present than that!?
I want to be able to post amazing before and after pictures online and amaze people with my weight loss.
I also came to the conclusion that even though I am completely capable of losing this weight (and I will!) it isn't going to change my personality, it's not going to change the things that make me an individual. For one, I'm still going to be 6ft 3! But I may see this as something to be happy about rather than feeling like an ogre!!
Good luck to everyone else out there who is on a weight loss journey. This forum is so amazingly supportive and I really can't wait to share my journey with all of you!
Thanks to anyone that managed to sit through my essay!
