On 13 November last year I decided enough was enough 🙅🏻♀️ I weighed 85.3kg, the heaviest I’ve ever been in my life. It was more than just not liking how my body looked - I was uncomfortable, unfit, tired and lethargic, and constantly woke with pins and needles. I knew something had to give. ✖️ I’ve battled with my weight ever since I was a kid, and had started so many fitness regimes and plans it was hard to keep track of them all. The only thing I hadn’t properly given a crack before was counting calories... and 11 months later, this is the result of CICO 💁🏻♀️ I limited myself to 1200 calories per day. This was by no means strict, and I didn’t deny myself of any food that I wanted to eat. I simply downsized my portions. 🍝 When things got hectic in March this year after my apartment was broken into and car stolen, I also decided to try @youfoodz - and haven’t looked back! It’s been a godsend throughout the final semester of Masters, as well as starting a new job 🥘 Anyway, the point of all this is that I decided I could do it, so I did it. I’ve lost 15kg, and gained a new lifestyle and mindset. (I also managed to RUN 10KM!) I’m so proud of myself. And I can’t wait to rock my bridesmaid dress on Saturday at @jeklomas’ wedding 💐 Watch this space. #cico#caloriecounting#loseit#facegains#weightloss#beforeandafter#weddingweightloss#healthyeating#youfoodz#progresspics
Okay Instagram which picture am I using for my LinkedIn A or B please vote in the comment section below.
Credit to @patrick.rennie for the shots. There were some gems. Also #blackandwhite is always more dramatic.
On July 1st I began the keto diet. Shortly thereafter I began a workout routine at the gym. In this morning's weigh-in I hit my first major milestone of over 50 pounds lost. It has been tough at times but it was well worth it. The gains in my self-confidence, demeanor, and overall happiness have been immeasurable. Thank you to everyone who has supported me on this journey. I still have a long way to go but for the first time in my life it feels like a matter of "when" as opposed to "if". #keto#weightloss#fattosnack#progresspics#lafitness#facegains
I've been a little M.I.A on here lately, but today I'd like to celebrate. I've spent the last year and a half trying to figure out this weight loss business. I started to forget how far I've come.
Then I found this old picture and compared it to a selfie I took today... And damn did I have some chubby cheeks before.
I'm actually so humbled by this comparison and reminded that hard work really pays off.
Everything is more dramatic in black and white.
@lizmja wanted to take some pictures of me after I shaved my face. Witness the process of me trying to fix my weird eyelid and failing.
Oh well. The fresh face looks better than expected.
Here's for the future #facegains.
I am not necessarily overweight. But I know I have a lot I want to improve on. Even at my thinnest, I've had a rounder face. I've always been so self conscious of my weak chin and have went so far as having a consultation with a plastic surgeon for it. I will probably still go through with it next year but as for right now, I know I can improve with weight loss at least. So here's my beginning post for face gain friday and I will check back again next month. 10-6-18
6 months difference, the last 5 of which without alcohol.
3/4/18: 93kg (14st 8lbs)
5/10/18: 82.75 (13st 0.5lbs)
Not really watched what I've eaten other than "I had cake yesterday so none today"
