Well Hello There

Yep it has been a while since I last posted anything. (Cough! 5 months) Any who let me tell you what I’ve been up to. Well I’m in my last year of uni, I just had all four wisdom teeth removed and I’ve completely changed my diet/mindset about food.

My current weight is around 68kg. Wooo 60’s baby! First time in my adult life. I think I weighed this much when I was 14. Exciting times.

I wont lie it has been really hard in the past couple of months. What I was doing/eating wasn’t working for my body anymore. I was consuming a high carb vegetarian diet and it wasn’t working well for my body. It could be seen in blood work, how I was feeling and my hormones. Honestly it was rough.

I was in a plateau for close to four months. Yes I lost weight but only 2kgs. I tried everything to break it but nothing worked. I started to think that I was going to be stuck like this. But alas I found a way and I found something that works.

*drumroll*

KETO!

I now practice a ketogenic diet. If you don’t know what that is it is a high fat, low carb and moderate protein diet. However this also means that I am no longer a vegetarian. I’m as shocked as you are.

I was recommended to implement a diet like this when I was around 16 to help with my PCOS, but I never tried it. I have now and I feel like an idiot for not doing it sooner. Though I haven’t been on the diet for long I am seeing and amazing difference in my body and mind. Firstly I managed to break my plateau, secondly my mind is clearer and my adhd is manageable. Thirdly my energy is amazing, I feel great. But not only that my energy is regulated instead of being wild and erratic. I can’t give enough praise to the diet. So far I love it.

A Little Reminder

I think that during a weight loss journey it is easy to forget where you started and how far you’ve come. I often look in the mirror and see no changes and feel sorry for myself. Recently while scrolling through some old pictures I found a picture of me during December 2014 when I was in japan. Needless to say I was shocked. I was stunned by how large I was. At the time the picture was taken I never allowed full body pictures of myself so it’s rare that I see what I was like. At the time I was around 95kg and I remember going to universal studios Osaka and I wasn’t allowed on the rollercoaster because the mechanism wouldn’t go down and that moment right there changed everything. It was the first time my size held me back physically from something I wanted to do. That being said it took a while to figure out how I was going to change. But I’m doing it and I started and that’s what matters and I still have a long way to go and that’s ok too. I just want to share this with you all to let you know that what you’re doing whatever it is great and to remind you not to forget where you came from.

If you’re somebody reading this and you don’t know where to start just do something…anything. Small changes will snowball and you will be able to change your life. If you quit now you’ll be back to where you started and if you’re back to where you started you’ll wish desperately to be where you are now.

80KG!

I should have posted this a couple of days ago but I was too busy (lazy). I’ve finally reached 80kg, which is a big deal for me. I haven’t been this weight in a long time because I always give up around now. I feel pretty amazing. I am still eating a plant-based diet and it seems to be going really well. I have noticed my skin has cleared up and I just feel cleaner.

Things are also looking up socially. I feel much more confident and more like myself. People are starting to notice the change and it feels good. But here’s something that is really pissing me off and make me happy at the same time. NOTHING FITS! I am to poor to buy new clothes so I have to wear gym clothes everywhere. I feel like the girls in that “active wear” video. I went out on Saturday night and wore a dress that was meant to be flowy and a bit oversized but it looked like I was wearing a moo moo. It’s a problem that I’m happy putting up with. So here is my next weight loss shot.
