Halfway There #20to25Challenge




I don't know how to start this post without screaming "Guys! I lost 10 kgs!"... so eff it, that's how we're gonna start this thing. GUYS I LOST TEN KILOGRAMS. *regains composure*
I had my monthly nutritionist visit late last week and I was nervous. I hadn't been following my "diet" properly, but I had been hitting the gym pretty consistently. I had a feeling that I hadn't lost weight, possibly due muscle gain, so I was pleasantly surprised when I got on that scale and saw the number staring up at me. My nutritionist had to reassure me that there was no error and that I had in fact lost weight. I was so happy. As I've mentioned before, I've chosen the "slow and steady wins the race" path for losing weight because I know that I can't survive on one of those "3 peanuts, 5 lettuce leaves, a bite of chicken and 3 breathes of Oxygen" diets. I love food. I love going out to eat. I love to drink (responsibly, of course). A big portion of my social life revolves around eating and drinking so never eating out and only having sparkling water every time isn't really a longterm feasible option... and I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I'm just trying to find a balance that allows me to be healthy without sacrificing outings that make happy. This is more important to me than being a size X.
Anyway, 10 down means I'm half way there. I still have 3 months to shed the next 10 and I'm very pumped for it. Now that I've reached this milestone, I'm actually able to see results and this has motivated me to cheat less and to make healthier decisions. Even on shitty days when I would normally reach for food, I've been able to shut those urges down and focus my energy on something else. Is it too narcissistic of me to say that I'm very proud of myself? Oh well! I'm happy and I just wanted to share the news with you guys because you have been very supportive. I really appreciate it ^_^
