The reason being that I've decided to be brutally honest with you all about my "journey". *I really hate that phrase "weight loss journey" like I'm on my way to Rome or something.*
No I'm not on a happy journey ... I'm on a Fat to Fit journey ... and its gonna be tough.
You see according to the NHS website i am "Obese". I wouldn't have thought i was that bad but at 5'9 weighing 120kg (19st), I am in the dark orange ... dangerously close to the "Very Obese" column. *And don't think i didn't have a good cry over that*
According to this bloody chart
of tears and self esteem destruction, i should be at the most 12 stones to be just in the "Healthy Weight" yellow.
When i thought about setting myself a goal, getting in the yellow didn't feel realistic to me. It felt like I was setting myself up to fail so instead I'm gonna aim to get in the cusp of "Over Weight" at
the apparently still unhealthy 13 stone.
So here i am, 2 weeks into trying to lose 6 stone with a hopeful
if heavy heart through a better diet and exercise.
Wish me luck!
