Hey Bees I am fed up, I got on the gym scales this morning and they told me that my scales have been lying to me by 2.5kg or 5 POUNDS can you believe it. Now I know you might be all saying that obv this doesn’t mean I have gained weight. However it sort of does because of when I got the scales, I’ll explain below….Anyway I am back to counting calories,
To give you all the background info
I cant possibly do anymore exercise, I have been a fitness freak for about 3 years now, I do bootcamp 3 times a week and am in group 1 out of 5 (there are only 6 in group one and 4 are men) I am the second fastest girl at Boot camp, I just did a half marathon in 1hr 48min which is pretty good, I have personal training once a week, and on top of that I try to hit the gym at least 2x per week.
I eat really healthy, I just eat too much. I am not over weight however I have been a lot thinner, I am 5ft tall I thought I weighed 50.5kg (111 pounds) the scales this morning told me I am 53kg (117pound)
I lost a lot of weight 3 years ago I went from 68kg (150pounds) to 43kg (94.5pounds)
I went up to 45kg and stayed this weight for about 1 year, then I gave up smoking and put on what I thought was 5kg (turns out it was 7.5) as it was around this time I changed scales. Now I have been trying to loose those 5kg for a year now without any luck, mostly because i figured hey I am slap bang in the middle of my healthy weight range and I do so much exercise some of it is muscle. I have been trying but not like I did the first time round.
Well this extra 2.5kg has made me go WHOA slipery slope, so that’s it back to counting calories. I lot of you may think I am being a bit silly, but it was so hard to loose the weight the first time round there is no way I am allowing myself to creep back up there.
Here are some pics so u can get the idea
The first one is of me at my current weight (maybe 1 or 2 kg lighter as I dieted a bit before the wedding)
This one is me at 44.5kg
And this is me at my heaviest –
Do any of you bees have similar stories to help motivate me?
