- Wedding: October 2014
Honestly, i swear my body is determined to stay at this weight forver! Its like it wants me to stay chubby.
Like many bees here, my upcoming wedding has inspired my get fit, healthy and back to a decent healthy weight campaign. I am 161cm and when I started my weightloss journey I weighed a little under 80kg.
I have lost 9kg since Feburary this year. However, I have not lost a single gram since the end of march! Not. One. On top of my weight, I have taken my measurements on a weeklybasis. I swear to god that these too have only changed a centimetre!
I am eating roughtly 1500calories a day, I train 6 days a week. I roughly do 20mins of cardio in intervals, followed by about 45mins of weight/resistance training, followed by another 25/30 mins of more Cardio intervals. I change what cardio type workout i do every few days (from rower, to stair climber, to cross trainer, to running on the treadmil) and have upped my weights every two weeks. I like the weight training over cardio and feel like my body prefers/ responds better to it than cardio. I also luuurve squats!! I almost always walk out of the gym feeling spent. I honestly feel the best I have felt in ages…. I am also still breastfeeding my 11month old baby girl 4x/per day.
I feel like Im doing all the right things, I am eating pretty clean, but because I am still breastfeeding I refuse to cut out dairy and grains/rice etc. I dont suppllement my diet with any protien powders etc because I want to do this as naturally as possible.
I just wish the scales would crack under the 70kg mark! Im just so [email protected]@##$$$%$$%%%^&*(&&^^&%$%$$###@@##$%#@@!#@ frustrated!!!! I dont know what I need to do extra to make this weight drop!
I have a typical ‘cave man’ figure and am not at all feminine in my opinion. I have short and natrually heavy set legs with big calves, a long body, wide hips, flat arse, huge feet (size 11) and am big boned/heavy set in general. I also have quite large hands for a woman and especially for one of my height. It has taken me many years to accept that I will never look graceful, petite or ultra femine like my sister. I am cool with that because I cant change who I am and after finally accepting this I have grown to like even love my ‘faults’. It makes me who I am.
