I’m fully aware that this post is going to turn out to look slightly controversial; amongst bloggers and YouTubers, there seems to be this strange stigma around talking about weight loss unless you’re visibly overweight. I know that sounds daft, but trust me – every time I’ve even hinted at being unhappy with my weight, people have come to my defence faster than the speed of light. I really, truly appreciate this. But the time is come to admit something, and I’ve only admitted it to myself this morning – I need to lose some weight.
I’m sure that’s something else people won’t like – me saying I need to lose weight. But for me, I do. I know my ideal weight, the weight I’ve been most happy at, and at the moment I am way past that mark. I didn’t know how much past it until this morning.
I stepped on the scales just a few minutes ago and had to do so several times before I believed the figure it was showing me. My clothes still seem to fit OK, and I feel alright, but I’m starting to think I’ve been fooling myself. I need to do this for me, and for my future goals in life. Many of you know I aspire to be a TV presenter, and if the camera adds 10 lbs I’ve got some serious work to do!
Many weight loss blog posts contain photos to document the journey, and a running total of the person’s weight. Call me a coward but I can’t face either of those things.
All I’m going to do is tell you how much weight I’ve lost each week, not how much I weight. My aim is to lose 2 stone, which will bring me to the weight I once felt most comfortable at.
So how am I going to do it? This might shock you…exercise and healthy eating. I know this may seem like a novelty but it’s the only way to do it. And believe me, I’m going to do it.
So, this is how it will work. Each Wednesday, I’ll talk about my progress throughout the week and give a little total somewhere around here:
Weekly weight loss: 0 lbs ** Total weight loss: 0 lbs
I’ve never been more ready!
