This may be shocking, but babies and condoms are made of different material
I feel fucking great this evening. (Even with the hilarious natural pout)
I had a long, stressful day at work, I was absolutely shattered; then I got home and decided to take my little sisters for a meal. They’re absolutely beautiful and I love love love spending time with them at the moment. They’re made me feel so happy to be alive today. Family, man. They’re a blessing.
(Nando’s is also a blessing. Preach.)

I’m so jealous! I have all of my friends on the lookout for me, I’m keeping my faith that my day will come! I have another friend called Kathryn though so we’re both in competition, what a pain :’)

Having lunch out in the carpark today. Whilst all the office are eating their shitty little health lunches/salads and nattering about calories,i’m halfway through my 615 calories of pure joy.
It feels like forever since i last ate a decent sandwich!
My fave thing about long term weight loss is not giving a shit about eating stuff that isn’t 100% health craze food.
Today, I learned that when medication says you should avoid alcohol, you should take it seriously. I only had 2 drinks and my head is falling apart!!
I had a wonderful afternoon and evening at a family BBQ in the sun.
I saw cousins that I havent seen in months!
I’m feeling pretty positive for the first time in a long long time and I love it.
A sunday night before and now

Wanted to share my latest before and after! This is 3.5 years difference so don’t think that change comes quick or easy. I would mess up, quit, and restart all the time!! It takes time and you constantly have to remind yourself that it’s worth it. But about a year ago I fell off the fitness wagon, lost sight of my goals because I started battle something even harder to defeat. Depression. I slowly but surely spiraled out of control and found myself in a mental hospital for 2 weeks after a failed suicide attempt. In the midst of my depression and my stay in the hospital I gained about 30lbs. My therapist suggested I start back on my fitness journey and join a gym. Working out, eating healthy, and the camaraderie of the gym helped me recover from my depression along side taking medicine and seeing a therapist twice a month. I’m slowly learning to love myself and all my imperfections. Sometimes the journey is more than just weight. When the mind is healthy the body follows :)
Had my 7th Doctors appointment in 4 weeks today. My Nurse transferred me to another Doctor as she was “worried about me” and needed my meds changing.
I’m now on 100mg sertraline (lustral/zoloft) from 50mg and i’m just about to go into week 3 of taking them. Hopefully i’ll be feeling the full benefit soon!
Eaten so badly today because i’ve been rushed around the Doctors and work, but i’m right back on it as of this moment and I went to buy some nectarines for my snack later on. Planning on a workout too!
The picture on the left almost brought me to tears. It was the day of my oldest sisters wedding. You can see my depression in my eyes. You can see my unhappiness, insecurities, my hate for my body. I remember that day so clearly… I couldn’t wait for it to be over. Seeing family members and friends I hadn’t seen in years. Taking tons of pictures that would be framed, put on Facebook. And there I was… Hating myself. The body I lived in. I didn’t want to see anyone. Yet alone people I hadn’t seen in so long. Take pictures? It was pretty much a nightmare for me. I remember avoiding shopping for a dress for weeks. My sister literally had to make me. I was convinced I could “lose a few pounds” before her wedding.. And I refused to go dress shopping until I had done so. Well as the day crept up on me… I had actually gained weight rather than lost it. And so there I was…. Unhappy, depressed, disgusted, angry, bitter. Thinking why is this happening to me? How did my life get to this point…
People ask me all the time what got me started.
You have to want this. you have to want it bad enough to bare the pain of change. because you WILL go through changes, and it will be painful. but worth it? without a doubt. sticking with it.. i wish i could give you an easy answer, but for me.. i suppose i couldnt take living in my own body anymore. it wasnt a question of how do i stick with this.. it was a question of.. can i really continue to live in this body? Overweight.. unhappy.. underlining depression constantly seeping into the back of my mind. I have no words for some of the things i went through over the past ten years.. struggling with my weight and health.. emotionally tore me apart, which led to binge eating.. yoyo dieting, abusing diet pills, and hating myself even more when i failed. I blamed everyone around me for years, when really the choice was in my hands the whole time. starting? first you have to prepare your mind. prepare yourself emotionally. especially if food has been an emotion outlet for you.
Don’t be too hard on yourself or set unrealistic goals. its going to take time. its going to be a process. your going to have temptations, and your going to fall sometimes. the biggest thing is that you GET BACK UP. “success is going from failure to failure without losing any enthusiasm” freaking love this quote. especially when relating it to dieting.. because “failure” will be a part of the journey. its a learning process.
I used to have a “goal weight”, but to be honest….I just want to be content and happy with my body. Every time I reach a goal.. I set another one. I’m not one of those crazy gym rats who is obsessed with working out and fitness, although some days I wish I was lol. I go to the gym a few times a week but I’m just realistic. I still want to enjoy life in the process of getting healthy & reaching my goals. I mean… Don’t get me wrong… When you have a large amount of weight to lose… It takes freaking dedication. Hard work. It hurts. It freaking sucks some days. The cravings, the anger, the frustrations of how we got to the weight we are in the first place. I could write a book about it. All the emotions to work through too… that in its self was just as hard, if not harder. For me personally, this journey has brought me a lot of inner healing. Some deep rooted anger and hurt literally had to be dealt with. Things that triggered my weight gain in the first place. I had to face my demons. I had to get to the root of the problem. I honestly believe weight gain and how we treat our bodies is directly related to our emotional state and current situations around us. Some things completely out of our control, but in the end that is no excuse. We can not change our past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way, and we cannot change the inevitable. But we do have control of our attitudes and how we chose to respond to our situation. I stopped choosing excuses and started seeing results. I stopped blaming others and started facing myself. I choose what I become. I shape me. It’s still a daily battle. Some days are better than others. But I can tell you one thing, it’s worth it.
