I thought I’d do a quick me post (I do have an about me page with a before and after pic) but thought I’d do a little blog post about it keeping it brief so I dont bore you all…..
After gaining 30kg having 5 kids tipping the scales at 90kg and reaching a size 18 I finally made the decision to do something about it and this time I was more determined. That was October 1 2010 and I havent looked back since. I changed my eating habbits firstly then started adding in walking and exercise bike at home for an hour an day it wasnt long before I started to see my weight drop. By December I had lost 12kg but was getting a little bored with the same exercise routine so I decided to join the gym. I chose Fernwood, a female gym and the fitness obsession began!! I was loving going to the gym, slowly i got the courage to start classes, PT, Zumba, Combat, Pump and Body Attack. The weight was slowly dropping and I was starting to look and feel more tonedand by mid July I had lost a total of 33kg making me 57kg and a size 8-10. I still had that determination, I was so strict with my eating, refusing to eat out and too scared to let myself have a treat now and then for fear of gaining weight back. That feeling consumed me, like the fat me was haunting me warning me I could go back to that anytime and I was determinated (and still am) that its not going to happen! After dealing with bloating issues since the weight loss that I just couldnt work out and doing lots of research online and doctors visits about what to do about it, trying lots of different vitamins I read about clean eating, 5 weeks ago I decided to follow a strict clean eating lifestyle and was amazing with the results, dropping 3kg in first 5 days and losing 4cm off my tummy and bloating now is a bare minimum!!! I was eating healthy before bot not 100% clean! I now have frequent meals, smaller portions but eat every 2-3 hours. All craving have stopped and I am feeling awesome!! The yummy recipes especially sweet treat recipes are amazing and not boring at all, now i can have clean eating treats without the bloating! I do have my bad treats from time to time like my monthly cocolate visit with my bestie Michelle and sometimes things pop up, I just choose wisely (except for when at Cocolat lol, thats my extra special treat). And opt for smaller portions. Anyway thats basically a quick story about my journey and below are some before and afters of me….
And here is me Easter 2012 with my 5 kids.
