Get fit with me: My weight struggles

Everyone has a health and fitness goal, well lets not say everyone, almost everyone, whether it is to lose weight, gain weight, build muscles or become toned we all have one.

The journey of health and fitness is an individual one that we all struggle with and the hardest part for many is being consistent. We often create these unrealistic plans that do not match our lifestyle thus making it harder to succeed and I for one can attest to that. When I started out at the end of  2015 in preparation for my wedding I was going full speed ahead, because I had a goal to look great in less than an year and I was successful at dropping 13 lbs and I liked how I looked in my dress to some extent, however I was and have not been happy with my weight or my body since 2012.

After moving to Canada my body has not been the same, poor diet, coupled with increased responsibilities and slow metabolism has caused me to struggle constantly with losing weight, beyond those, the habit of emotional eating, which is quite common  doesn’t help.

And you see those hunger and satiety clues, I don’t get those anymore. I have been able to maintain my weight around 160 lbs, which is by far better than 173 lbs but I am still overweight for my frame.

That’s why I have this blog, its my area of accountability and I will be using it to track this journey into weight loss as I attempt to lose 15 lbs and lean out my body in a manner that is maintainable.

Here is a look at my fluctuations over the years:

This is me at a healthy weight of 145 lbs, I use to eat healthy and exercise by swimming, carrying out body weight exercises as well as workout at the gym. At the time I would fluctuate between 145-149 lbs and that was a great place to be for me in terms of what constitutes a healthy weight.

Note this is also where the highs and the lows will be shared and where we can have conversation.
