So the change in my body isn’t so evident in these pictures but the change in my face is blowing my mind! I have struggled with EDs in the past like binge eating and bulimia and so my weight has gone up and down pretty much since puberty which was 7 years ago. Every now and again I will motivate myself so lose some weight in a healthy fashion where I will gain a lot of confidence and energy but then I fail after a couple of months and all the bad feelings and cravings come rushing back. Well I am two months in now and I have no urges to stop, I feel so much stronger and healthier and my self-esteem has increased.
I’ve mainly cut down on portions. I used to skip breakfast and lunch and keep myself going until dinner by binging on unhealthy snacks. Now I actually eat a balanced and healthy 3 meals a day with mainly healthy snacks and I stop eating after about 9pm whilst drinking loads of water throughout the day. I made it doable for myself by not cutting out all unhealthy foods, sometimes I eat a donut purely because I want to and I don’t feel guilty afterwards IT’S AMAZING.
I think what has had the biggest effect has been a youtube channel called tiffanyrotheworkouts, she has a website where you can download a free workout schedule with a daily playlist of her youtube videos. Her workouts are effective, supportive and fun. (I am in no way sponsored by her or anything I’m genuinely just a big fan).
Anyway, I am two months in now as I started at the beginning of April, it’s very early days so I’m really excited to see what the next couple of months bring. I have decided not to record my weight because I doesn’t really matter to me what I weigh as long as I can see and feel the difference.
