Hi guys how are we all doing? Today another lifestyle kinda post. In this post I want to talk about losing weight and all the struggles I’ve experienced myself. I’ve been trying to lose weight for years and let’s say that it hasn’t been easy, and the most fun part is that I’m not even where I want to be yet.
Let’s first take you back at why I’m on this weight loss journey in the first place!
Some years ago I’ve gained 35 kg in a year due to the medication I was taking at that time for my depression, don’t ever start those guys. It’s all fun that they want to help you with having your depression under control but gaining half of my body weight didn’t particularly helped as it made me even more insecure and depressed but all these things aside that is how I gained it all and now on to the losing part which was way more difficult and took so much longer then gaining it all.
I think because I’ve gained this weight due to medication it was a lot harder to get rid of it because I didn’t gain it by eating loads. I’ve never been a big eater so it has been hard to find something that worked. I think I kinda tried everything that I could but the effects were little. I didn’t gain anymore which is of course a good thing but I was losing so slow, I think I was losing 5 kg each year and of course something is better then nothing but I just NEEDED to get rid of this weight because it made me feel miserable and not like myself. I’ve been sort of skinny my whole life and this wasn’t feeling like me. With every kilo I lost I felt closer to myself again and that felt good. I’m also a really fussy eater which also makes it really difficult. I tried a lot of exercises, cutting calories, trying to eat as healthy as I could, drink more and having a good eating rhythm. With everything I’ve tried I did lose something though but it’s so discouraging if you try your total best for so long and it doesn’t pay off like you want it to. This post is not really what my secret is to losing weight or tips because I don’t even know what I’m doing half of the time haha. If I’m on my target weight I will go in way more depth on what worked best and my tips and tricks but I’m not there yet, I’ve lost 18 kg now so I’m little over half now and I really hope the other half will be somewhat quicker. I think you totally understand where I’m coming from with this story if you are also dealing with your own weight loss journey, it’s hard and it will never be easy I think. I do feel a lot better about myself then when I did at my highest weight though so there are some positive things! I will keep on trying till I reach my goals even if it’s the last thing I do.
I hope you all enjoyed reading and I will talk to you soon! If you have anything that you want me to do a blog post on, my mind is always open for new ideas! 🙂
