PSA: if you eat JUST 200 calories over your expenditure everyday for 6 months, you gain 10 lbs.
And if you eat/burn 200 calories under your expenditure everyday for 6 months, you lose 10 pounds.
To put this in perspective, that’s just one less soda a day.
Gives you something to think about.
What I’ve learnt this year: Progress comes with time, don’t give up, it won’t make results come any faster. It’s okay to mess up once in a while, we’re only human, we are prone to make mistakes. Don’t let that bring you down permanently, bring yourself back up. Don’t let exercising and eating healthy take over your life. Being afraid of carbs or having a slice of cake isn’t healthy. Indulging once in a while, even once a day, won’t hinder your progress. Enjoy your life, eat that chocolate, that cupcake, that slice of yummy pie. It took you months and years to get the progress you have now, some indulgence in moderation won’t make everything come back. Support each other through that process, it’s what makes us have more motivation to keep going.
Flexed vs Unflexed.
Harsh truth, don’t expect results in a week, it’s not gonna happen. It’s months and years of sweat, pain, hardwork and consistency to accumulate into getting where you want to be. Don’t compare yourself to other girls, your body is unique to your own. Don’t compare to girls with a naturally thin body and fast metabolism who can eat and drink all they want and still fit into a size 2 pair of jeans. Don’t do it. Don’t allow yourself to. Be patient, love your body, you will be amazed with the potential it has.
Anonymous asked: When you were at your heaviest, what made you finally say "I need to make a change" like did you just wake up one day and decide to change your life? Cause I haven't had that yet and every time I try I fail
I had a few low points that stick out to me.
1) I was shopping with my mom and I just started crying because I couldn’t find anything that would fit. I was 17 years old and wearing a size 24. All I could shop at were plus sized clothing stores and they didn’t make many plus size teen clothes. So I was crushed and just felt so sad that day. I never felt ugly, but I was just so tired of not feeling like “myself.” My mom and I joined weight watchers a couple days after that.
2) it was my second attempt at weight watchers. After I weighed-in and sat through the meeting. I broke down in the car sitting with my mom. Not only had I gained back all the weight I had I previously lost, I had gained back more weight! I was now 256 pounds and I felt so crushed and like I had let my parents down. They were devoting so much time and effort towards helping me and I was just sabotaging myself.
Those are my two low moments.
I started my journey twice. The second time I decided I was no longer going to look back. And I didn’t care how long it took. Any amount of step in the right direction is a step in the right direction.
Don’t get hung on up on the starting. Just go. And decide that here on out you will start to make a conscious effort to reach your goals.
