These two goals for 2013 are linked and the last ones that I want to set. They are not the toughest but they are linked to so many different aspects of me.
I am obese, this is true. I am not just over weight but I am morbidly obese.
It is time that I lay it all out on the line and not hide away from the reality, I have never done this before and my gut just behind my belly button is tight because I am nervous.
Here are my details
I am 161cm tall and weight 120kg’s.
My ideal weight according to the calculators is 65kg, but this is not what I am aiming for.
My goal for 2013 is to drop below 100kg’s.
Phew well that was not hard at all really!
As I mentioned above my health and weight are all linked. I have PCOS’s therefore I do have a regular period. My hormones are imbalanced and I have low self-esteem. It is all linked, all of IT. When I was pregnant both times I lost weight, simply because my hormones were working. I didn’t change my eating habits at all. But I lost weight. I strongly believe that if I my hormones are working correctly then I will lose weight.
So why don’t I just go onto the contraceptive pill? The answer to that is I have tried the lightest dosage and found to suffer severely from migraines.
In August 2011 I found a website (link here) that claims that they PCOS symptoms can be reversed with the help of herbal supplements, diet and exercise. This is exactly what I want to get back to be doing. When I was regularly taking these pills my period came back. I was losing weight without changing much of my diet.
In 2013 I will be doing:
. Start taking the Insulite supplements
. Address my hormone imbalance with my diet
. Reading all books on PCOS.
. Finding my motivation team
. Loose 21kgs!
Finding my motivation team might seem as a weird thing to put down. In the past I have tried to do this all by myself and have not succeeded. This time I need to surround myself with people that I know and people that will not judge me that will support me through this journey. I need encouragement and NOT judgement. I need support and not criticism. I deserve all this simply because I am Mari and I am determined to become healthy for myself.
