My weightloss story

12.9.13


In one of my latest post I mentioned that I used to wear size 16 and that I'm size 10/12 now. I didn't expect that one little sentence to cause such a big hype, I got a good few emails with people asking me how I did it and how long did it take me. All this inspired me to write a blogpost on my weightloss story. I hate personal blogposts but if this is going to help someone avoid my mistakes then that will make me really happy.  

I was never a thin person, I was a chubby kid and chubby (or let's face it ... FAT ) teenager. 
When I was 14 I got to the stage where I couldn't look at myself in the mirror, I hated my body and how nothing looked good on me, that was also the time when I started realising how dangerous overweight is for my health. When I finally decided to make a change and loose some weight my parents decided to divorce ... The hate I had for my body and the stress about my parents' divorce pushed me to some super stupid ways of loosing weight like eating a looooot of food and then throwing up or trying out dangerous diets . All this was not only not working but making me seriously depressed, +  all the 'super diets' made my skin look awful. I was only 14 back then so I can't really blame myself for all the stupid decisions, after all I was only a kid who knew nothing about healthy lifestyle. It was only when I turned 15 that I got interested in health and loosing weight the healthy way , I went on a proper diet not some silly starvation plan, started jogging and going to the gym. That's how I lost my first 12kgs . 
I was happy with myself for another year or so ... Until I got lazy and started gaining weight again. I started feeling crap and was unhappy once again. People around me started pointing out to me that I should loose some weight, do some exercising go on a diet... All their wise words instead of helping only made me feel worse. I took some time out, rethought what I want from life and went back to my healthier ways...And lost another 11kgs :) 
How did I loose the weight the second time ? I said goodbye to junk food, I was treating myself to something nice from time to time but after a while I didn't even want the unhealthy foods, they started to taste like crap to me. I fell in love with swimming once again, I would go swimming 2/3 times a week for pure pleasure, weightloss was only a positive side effect of my newly rediscovered passion. 
I'm happy with what I have and who i am now. I'm still hoping to loose 5-7 kgs to fit my dream size 8 but I'm proud of what I achieved so far anyway. It is truly an amazing feeling to put on pants that used to barely zip and discover they're loose on you  ! Being able to go shopping, try on clothes you like and actually LIKE they way they look on you is priceless.
I'm going to put up some 'what I ate' 'workout routine' blogposts to show you my ways of loosing weight step by step.  Lets loose those 7 kgs together ! :** 
If there's anything else you'd like to know feel free to ask ! 
Note: it is very important that you're loosing weight for yourself and yourself only. If you're happy with your curves and its others telling you to loose weight tell them to go f**k themselves (I mean it) everyone is beautiful the way they are as long as they're happy :) 

And some before and most recent after photos. Look, I have knees now ! And my face doesn't look like a medicine ball anymore :')
