For as long as I can remember, I’ve been overweight. It sucks, I can tell you that. As most people who struggle with their weight know(weather you’re under- or overweight), it is hard to get where you want to be. I would love to lose 15 kilograms, which is 33 pounds. I’ve succesfully lost 5 kilograms in the summer of 2012, but since then it’s been disappointing, really.
I love food, I’ll be the first to admit that.
I have a hard time saying no to cookies or any other sweets and when I am at home, I tend to overeat out of boredom. I’ve done many attempts to lose weight, but they always end up failing as we have too many delicious snacks in the home or I binge eat just because I can.
But that is all going to change now! And this time, for real. Jop has stopped smoking a month ago (yay for him, I am so proud of him), but because of this, he is putting on weight. As I hate being told I’m getting fatter, I am not telling him he is getting fatter. His mother however, does not mind saying that. So, thanks to her (I owe her), Jop and I agreed to start eating healthier and trying to lose weight starting January.
And hopefully I will soon be able to cross out the first things on my Day Zero Project.
As for my starting weight? See the image above. I am not going to be embarrassed by it anymore. I used to keep my weight top secret and yes, it’s too much for my height and it’s not good for my health. So acknowledging this is the first step.
