This is me now. There has been a change for sure, from the first photo taken in May. I can see this when I see the photo. You can read more about it in my first blog post here.
Sadly, can I not see this in real life. I just do not. I can sometimes feel it, as I do not struggle as much as I used to do. I have for sure lost a significant amount of weight. I can logically understand that, but visually do I have not under any circumstances see it. I am looking into different reasons why I do not see it, not understand it and what it can be.
What Are My Current Stats?
I am now at 97 Kilos, and at my heaviest weight I weighed in at 116, If I just get down one kilo more and I am down 20!
I find it amazing that I have been able to do this. When you hear it, it sounds a lot. Like really a lot.
But I am somehow not aware of it. It is a struggle I have and something I need to look into. For me to live long-term with my weight loss I need to be aware of it. It is kind of imperative for the whole shebang.
The stats are not so great, but truth to be told not as bad as they use to be. And for this I am happy.
Not only this but I also have had:
- high blood pressure,
- blood sugar,
- liver fats,
- problems sleeping,
- pain in joints, back, knees,
- phlegmy lungs,
- irregular periods.
This was just to mention some. I do have more and have had more issues than these. Being obese for long periods of life is not healthy, whatever people claim to say.
This time around, I do not care that much how I look, of course, I care I am not going to pretend otherwise, but I want to really focus on how I feel. I need to transform my thinking from looks to needs.
I am tired of feeling all the above. I am 35 and should not feel like I am about to die.
I do not want anymore anxiety induced by food not having the health benefits for my body as I would want.
Since I have begun losing weight, I have improved my blood pressure, and it is down to normal readings. I no longer snore so I wake up my daughter, nor do I wake up with phlegm in my lungs, on a regular basis. I am on a really good trajectory! I just need to keep it up and going.
These weight loss changes are more than welcomed. It is not easy to lose weight and it is very often a shitty road but I do think it is worth it.
These are things I try to focus on when I cannot see the change. These are stats so much more important than looks. I am on a journey to health and balance. I want to continue this journey, a bit different than I have done until now. I need to look into a holistic view and to be good in all parts and not just a number on the scale.
