Hi my loves,
My first weight loss blog and man what can I say.
First of all, don’t come at me with some none sense like ‘if you are body positive then why you losing weight’.
You can be both. Yes I said it.
You can love yourself at different sizes but also love yourself to make changes especially when you nearly had a heart attack walking on sand dunes. LEGIT this happened. I never knew I was so unfit until I had to walk up a sand dune in Piha and a 60 year old Grandma was faster than me.
Like if that wasn’t a sign from God or whatever higher belief system there is then boo I don’t know what to believe in.
The scariest thing was that..
My heart was working so much that I heard it as I walked up on the dunes, It went faster and faster and I was tired, and I gave up going on the Hill. Instead, I ended up only going half way.
But how scary is that? I guess for me I was always fit but after December and after my wedding I thought I was finally ‘Free’. I was dieting so much before the wedding and after the wedding, I went crazy and ate everything. Moderation who? Moderation existed no more and fitness was no more as well.
I’ve thought to myself that I don’t ever want to be in the position of travelling around New Zealand or even overseas and not have the ability to go on a hike.
I want to have the stamina (yes I used that word) to go on long walks, go up big stairs and hills. I don’t ever want to go on a trip and sleep, and stay inside. I want to go walking, go up big hills with my husband.
So I guess this is how my journey started. I work out to increase my fitness and have a healthy heart.
A healthy heart with less fat means you live longer.
I want to live longer with no health problems.
So this is the start of my journey and I hope to do my best in sharing my journey with you.
(PS My featured image is actually a picture of me size 16 with size 14 jeans, I thought I should motivate myself some how. I bought these jeans on Sale and they were only available on this size so here we are 🙂 )
Lots of love,
