20Kgs Until My 25th Birthday #20to25Challenge!


2010 Armenia, those jeans obviously don't fit anymore :P


You know when you get that "how did this happen" feeling? That's how I feel right now. 
What am I talking about? My weight. 


The most sensitive subject which I try to avoid talking about at all times, especially so openly on a public space like the internet. It's scary. But you know what? Fuck it, let's do this. 
I've toyed with the idea of doing this for the longest time, and I've always chickened out. I guess I didn't want to venture out of my comfort zone and expose my "vulnerable" side. I also didn't want to deviate away from the topics I usually write about on this thing, but since I've pretty much documented my weight gain on this thing (just go back to the archives), it would be nice to also document my weight loss. 




That's me back in early 2011, how am I the same person? (sorry for potato)


My goal for the next six and a half months is to lose a shit-ton of weight, aka 20 kgs. I'm turning 25! (guys sidenote what? I've been on this thing since I was 17!) I don't want to turn 30 and regret not having done this. It's time for a change. In the past year, I've made two attempts to get healthier. One worked for a couple of days, the second time lasted a good two months...until I hurt my back at the gym and had to stay in bed for two weeks. That second time though was different from all the other times, I was enjoying the gym and enjoying eating healthy. It was like that part of my brain that knew what I should do took over. I lost around 5 kgs and I was SO happy. I even bought gym gloves since I was working out and doing weight so much. Then I hurt my back, and at first I couldn't wait to recover so that I could go back to the gym. Until slowly the part of my brain that knew what I shouldn't do started taking over again. I kept convincing myself that I'd start again, but it's been three months since I've made a full recovery and I still keep putting it off. It all ends now. I'm going to get healthier, lose weight, and meet my goal for my 25th birthday next year. I wanted to be realistic with my goal, which is why I decided that around 20 kgs in 28 weeks is a good idea. That's slightly less than one kilo per week, which should be doable if I stick to my diet and exercise program. 


That's me last summer, around 8kgs lighter than I am today


For the first two weeks, I want to cut out all the junk in my life and limit my alcohol intake as much as possible. Just to kick things off and to start working on saying no to bad things which I'll regret later on. I will meet my step goal of 6,000 steps everyday and workout three times a week. I know that they say you should do 10,000 a day, but let's be realistic for now, I will increase the goal as the weeks go by. 

There will be a weekly update on my blog just so that I can log in my achievements and just share my thoughts about the week. 


Sometime in 2011, on the curvy side but still looking good :P


If you have any tips, books, videos, articles or whatever that you think I should take a look at, share them below!

  2. You are pretty. Anyway, we women should remain body in good shape. Try some exercise every single day, and thats all im doing to keep shape (not to mention eating style, i tried lowcarb before, it worked really well in reducing body fat but it gained back fat quickly after i quitted lowcarb mode.) FOor now i think that regular workout is best.
