I started school not so long ago and I have to say, I'm really enjoying it.
Firstly because I was bored out of my mind doing noting, secondly because I'm actually really smart (compared to the average anyway).
Overall study-wise I'm doing good.
But, to no ones' surprise, I am eating way to much crap. No fruit and all fries. I know I know... I'm really disgusted by even typing that! I can't help to think the word foodwhore.
I have been piling on weight since November and I am sick of carrying all this extra jiggle around. My shirts are too tight, my panties are too tight even my freaking tights are to tight!
To draw a picture; I've gone from a 12 to a 14 size UK in approximately tree months... Every weight nightmare I've ever had is coming to life!!
My mom's wedding is in seven months from now, which means that I have seven months to loose all my hateweight. Arms, boobs, belly, thighs and ass! It's a "everything most go" sale of fat.
The way to do this?
I have (properly) mentioned this a few times on the blog but lets go through it again so Cille can keep up, shall we?
1) Motivation. It is vital for any weight loss to stay focused and to keep the goal in mind at all times.To get motivated enough to enduring a "diet" you can do all sorts of things. Carry thinspo around all day. Snap your wrist with a rubberband every time you want to eat. Eat naked in front of the mirror. All that crazy stuff. Personally I prefer to write down the reasons I want to loose weight and then pull them out mentally when I need to.
Top 3 motivating reasons to stay on track:
Fashion -reading magazines, checking blogs, watching fashion shows and model/designer documenteries. Every time I see a dress I know I can't wear because of my fat boobs or belly I feel like running 5 miles!!
Health -keep up with diet/work out trends. I wanna look like I'm 25 at the age of 40, and unhealthy overweight people usually don't.
The high -Spending waaay to more time than mentally healthy looking at myself. But there is nothing better than to stand in front of a mirror and love the way you look. At rare occasions it happens to me and it feels so awesome!
2) Action. One thing is to think "I want to get thin" an other is to do something about it!
I usually start my diet periods with:
Cleaning out my fridge and stocking up on green.
Rejoining the gym or gym classes -but since I'm broke that will have to wait till March. I'm running with my boyfriend instead.
Taking the bike to school instead of the bus.
Saying "no thank you!"
NEVER EVER buying candy/cake/non diet soda -not even for anybody else.
Drinking tea/homemade sugarfree ice tea/water/diet soda -nonstop!
Weighing myself every week -Friday 06:00am.
Eating vitamin pills.
3) Endurance: the hardest thing for me is this step... I almost always fall of the wagon after a couple of weeks but the advices to keep going sound something like this:
Don't go to extremes when it comes to diets -lemonade, cabbage soup, cotton ball diet...
Treat yourself a piece of dark chocolate once in a while. (I don't think so...)
Don't eat the same menu over and over again -it causes craves.
Reword yourself with spa/massages/clothes as your weight loss progresses.
Jup, so that's all for now everybody. If you have any tips I am more than glad to post them :)
