This is it; I am starting a new way of living. I am 23 years old, 5'7''. I started at 240lbs on November 10, 2011 and I am more motivated than ever.
I always struggled with my weight ever since I was a kid. I went through multiple diets, they were always efficient... but for a short period of time. I had this crazy habit to kick start a diet by stopping to eat for a couple days... now I am doing things differently.
I hate when people take pictures of me, so I am usually behind the camera taking shots. This November I invited friends home and I was not the one holding the camera. When I got the pictures in my inbox the next day I was so shocked... this is what I looked like standing next to my friends ? I never thought there was such a big difference! I knew I was overweight, but when I looked in the mirror it was not that bad. It gave me the kick in the butt I needed to start learning about nutrition and to really ACT.
I thought it would be a good idea to track my food and I was naive enough to start a complex excel sheet to write it down... What a relief when I stumbled across this amazing website the very next day !! Fatsecret has been a revelation for me !
Fatsecret helped me discover :
- The Fat head video which really got me into reading and learning about nutrition
- Great recipes that are easy to make and just taste awesome.
- That I am not alone dieting and that if so many people can do it, I can do it too.
I learned and read about the Atkins diet.
I discovered LCHF and Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt website
Learned how carbs are bad and fat is good.
I watched countless health videos, read scientific researches and health blogs... and now I understand why my weight was out of control.
I am trying a LCHF approach now and I will see how it helps me lose weight. So far I do not feel hungry and I lose weight without too much effort... let's see if I can reach my goal !
