Hello Everyone! Welcome to my fat loss journey 2.0
Today is day 3 of 100% Huel.
After years of denial and lack of motivation I determined I need to make a dramatic lifestyle change, well diet mostly. I’ve decided to use Huel as a way to help maintain a balanced healthy diet for fat loss and weight control. Why Huel? I have no idea. I have seen a few work colleagues using it and enough facebook ads to get it lodged into my brain. I did some research, read an inspiring article of a guy who did 6 months of Huel only. I quickly came to the conclusion that Huel was my only hope.
I’m all in. No cheating. No exceptions.
In conjunction with Huel I am using the 'Lose it" app to track my daily weight, fitness, calorie+nurtition, and water intake. This app is very useful, it really keeps me in check by doing a lot of the hard work of calculating everything. The index of food is vast. I highly recommend it.
Where to begin… I’ve been through this, 10 years ago. I lost 50 kilos in around 18 months. I was 110 kilos and 23 years old at the time. This is why I call it “Fat Loss Journey 2.0”
What got me motived is actually a little depressing and I don’t want to bring any of you down when we all are here to move forward and be positive, but in most good stories there’s a sad background. Sadly I had suffered a miscarriage this past week. My way of coping was to focus all my attention onto myself. While I was pregnant the thought crossed my mind several times that I wasn’t happy with my weight (fat mass) and I really wanted to be at a healthier weight before giving birth. It is possible to lose weight while pregnant but definitely more challenging. The news wasn’t new as I had an ultrasound two weeks prior that showed me much less then I was supposed to be. It is heart breaking but I also understand how incredibly complicated it is to actually create life. Simply sometimes things don’t match up and nature takes its course. Everyone copes differently to these things. All I want to take from this tragic loss is to motivate myself to create something positive out of it.
So the journey begins…
Actually it began 2 days ago. I was 84.95kg. I have lost 1kg each day since I have started. I know this is due to water weight and other things happening to my body due to my pregnancy loss but it’s a great start. I am weighing myself daily, first thing in the morning.
I will be posting my results weekly with photos . I want to inspire and also keep myself in check . Keeping a journal will help. Please share your ideas and progress.
Thanks for reading and good luck to us all!!
