YEAH I lost some weight now I’m gonna talk about it
Hey long time no blog post.
SO I have outed myself for my weight loss, and now the questions are coming in which is how instead of why.. (the why is my health).
I will not give advice, I am not an expert but I will talk about how I have made changes and the things that seem to help me.
I have definitely made small but powerful changes as opposed to doing it all at the same time.
I asked for HELP
I went to my doctor and finally accepted I needed something to take the edge of my anxiety, I started on the lowest dose of anti depressants. I got treatment for my B12 & Folate deficiency.
I addressed my major addictions
Full sugar coke, I was drinking AT LEAST 1.5 liters of coke a day
I quit that and it was horrific, I was so thirsty all the time, nothing could quench my thirst because my body wanted that sickly sweet flavor.
I used NO SUGAR COKE as a crutch, I was still having the odd full sugar drink but NO COKE.
But so you know….
I WAS STILL TRYING TO CHEAT MY DIABETES
I was having lollies and cakes and blah and seeing what would affect my sugar levels more, I lost a big amount of weight at once from quitting the coke but I wasn’t really actually trying really. REALLY.
MORE BLOOD TESTS
I got my ass handed to me by a doctor, I knew I need to actually make changes otherwise I would end up on INSULIN, and statistically once you start insulin there really isn’t any going back.
I QUIT LOLLIES, ALL FULL SUGAR DRINKS AND BAKERY AND TAKEAWAYS
I was super obsessed with Homebrand Sour lollies and could down a bag do fricken quick, and those are actually coated with SUGAR, I would have the odd keto treat, bliss balls or DARK chocolate but only at night when the beast arose… the binging beast.
Drink water… No joke it’s so good for us… I won’t touch any sugar free drinks until I’ve had my 2 litres a day…
ABOUT MY BEAST
Every night I get so hungry and it’s similar to the thirst I speak about above… it’s a hunger that only a bag of lollies could tame…
I get really sad and feel empty – cos I wanna eat my feelings, and I can’t eat those anymore I need to channel it into something that is positive for me.
WALK IT OUT
Recently I’ve added a daily walk to my routine, I put on a podcast HEY MY FAV MURDER and go pet watching around my neighborhood.
I’m really starting to like it, at first I would just do 1km and now on a good day I’m doing between 3.5 and 4.5km.
FUCK THE SCALES
I have been weighing myself which I have never really done regularly before but I need to have that number as a guide, it doesn’t define me but it helps spur me on.
The last 6kilos were a mf to lose, I kept gaining and losing and repeat. Tears were shed but I just ramped up the exercise. Although I wasn’t losing my body is certainly more toned and my breasts are for sure a lot smaller wa.
SO HUNGRY IT HURT HIT ME WITH SOME PROTEIN
I went through a period of days where I wasn’t eating enough and had a physical stabbing ache on my stomach from hunger so now I’m trying to eat more thoughtfully – lots of eggs and chicken.
YOU”RE A SCHNACK
Where I am at now is trying to not eat all my kids biscuits and have healthy alternatives for me…
Like cottage cheese on cruskits and natural unsweetened yogurt and fruit..
I’m a bit fussy so this part is challenging.
DON”T ASK ME FOR ADVICE
Cos I don’t know honey, BUT if I could tell you something it would be this…
Take control, make small manageable changes at a time, don’t think you can do it on your own – ask for help – get checked out at your GP too!! Blood tests are a must, if you are feeling tired and unmotivated there could be a medical reason behind it!
Take your health seriously because without it we are all sick or even worse….
Anywho I hope this all makes sense.
Love yous long time…
