Hi guys! So a lot of you ask me about my weight loss journey so I figured it would be a good idea to make a post about it so here we are!
Okay so this journey started like two years ago. During all my adolescence, I was overweight and I just used to deal with it my own way. I didn’t love myself or my body, I was hiding behind large clothes and everything. The hate I had for myself made me do some pretty extrem stuff and I thought that was the solution you know.
But then I had a talk with a friend of the family who told me about all the “health” aspect of being overweight like for my future and everything.
That was the “breaking point”. I realized a lot of things this day, I’ve thought about it a lot. I just couldn’t let it go to far.
I wasn’t happy, I was destroying myself so I had to do something about it.
Then I thought, I started to plan everything in my mind. What I wanted, why and how I was going to make it happen. I discuss about everything with my family, told them that I wanted to get healthier.
I did not wanted to diet, you know? I just wanted a healthier life style. I knew this time was the good time, I really was ready for the change. And I think that’s the most important part of this journey: you REaLLY need to know what you want, what’s going to happen (or not) that it’s not going to happen overnight, that it takes time and a lot of patience. You need to picture it and know why you want this.
So I started to eat a lot more of fruits and veggies, less oil/butter/sugar.
I also started to workout a lot more (45 minutes everyday). This was “pretty easy” for me because I have a lot a equitment at home so I didn’t have to go to a gym or anything.
I quickly saw some big results. People were asking how I was doing this and everything. It’s just so amazing when you see your body change, you start to accept your body, you (usually) love to workout…. At some point, it became almost an addiction for me! I was coming home pretty late at night but I had to do something you know? So it was stepper, bycicle then workout on my legs or my abs.
It was almost too much like if I didn’t workout, I could feel guilty!
Ofc I would take progress picture every months and I still can believe what I’ve achieved. Last summer was so great, I was able to run like crazy!
Now my goal isn’t to lose weight anymore (I’ve lost more than 20kg) it’s just to keep on being healthy and toning up my body.
Because yeah, ofc all this is amazing and even tho I feel like so so much better, I’m not 100% ok with my body. I know what I want and I’m going to work for it because as I said earlier, it’s not a diet and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon.
Now when people say that I inspire them in real life or tumblr it’s like the best feeling ever! I can’t believe that some people actually look up to me!
I want to keep doing this, I want to get stronger and challenge myself.
