I lost 12kg's in 1 year! Now I feel confident and energetic
I have always wanted to lose a few pounds but I always found it difficult either due to lack of time for a workout or laziness. Another important reason is that I have been an emotional eater since childhood.
I weighed a whopping 76 kgs at the age of 20 (being 5 feet and 6 inches tall).
I didn't realise how heavy I was until I moved to London for educational reasons. Being an overseas student, I had no time to cook meals due to hectic uni and part time work. Most of my meal times, I just grabbed a bar of chocolate. Also I had pizzas, burgers and fries for dinners. I had no energy and I always felt tired and lazy.
When I came back home during my holidays, my parents were shocked to see me. My mum in particular was in shock after seeing my acne prone skin and the effect of my diet on my body. That night me and mum had a huge conversation during which she explained me what I was doing to my body and she gave me confidence that I can still change. She was the one who told me that leading a healthy lifestyle even in our busy lives is not difficult.
Then I started eating sensibly and did regular workouts. My mum even gave me healthy recipes and tips on snacking.
Now I have lost 12 kgs in a year and I feel much more confident, active and energetic. I still have to lose 4 to 5 kilos to reach my ideal weight but I know I can do it.
I am trying to eat as healthy as possible even if I go to restaurants and workout at least 5 days a week. I feel fit and my mum is really proud of me.....ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE WITH SHEER DETERMINATION...
