Woohoo, vacation time! And a little progress

So, I’ve been slacking off a bit with my weigh-ins, so it’s been roughly 2 weeks since my last update. This one’s gonna be a short one, because I’m leaving for France in a few hours – and my goodness I’ve been looking forward to a vacation of relaxation and nothing else! I’m planning to spend most of the time by the pool reading a good book, so it’s gonna be super nice.  Continue reading…

Weight loss progress: Week 2

I’m so excited! This week I’ve lost 2.87 lbs 1,3 kg., and I’m so relieved! This means I’ve lost 3.53 lbs 1,6 kg. in total and are that much closer to my first weight loss goal.

For the past week I’ve managed to stay away from sweets and I’ve really made an effort to eat healty and stay on track. I’ve also managed to do 30 minutes of Just Dance every day, which is SO much fun. Some time during the next week I’ll increase the dancing time to an hour, because I feel like I can handle it, but don’t want to push too hard just yet. Oh, by the way – the picture is of one of my post workout snacks.. Looks really pleasing to the eye, doesn’t it? It roughly contains 172 calories, so that’s not bad. Continue reading…

Weight loss progress: Week 1

I’ve updated my current goal progress, and I got to admit that it didn’t go quite as expected. I’ve only dropped 0.66 lbs 0,3 kg. in a week which is much less than I anticipated, but it wont get me down. I’m still 0.66 lbs 0,3 kg. closer to my goal than I was last week, so I just gotta keep going.

Since my last post quite a few things has happened – I’ve been gearing up for my weight loss project! Continue reading…

So far, so good (I think!)

It’s been almost a week since I set my first weight loss goal, so I thought it was time for at status report.

I don’t know how much weight I’ve lost yet (if any!) since I haven’t been home since my last post. Hopefully I’ll be able to drop by my apartment this week and jump on the scale. But anyway, making small changes to my lifestyle is also a big part of the proces, so I can give you an update on that part 🙂

Also, I’ve been thinking a lot about what kind of content I want on this blog, because it mainly has to be something that inspires me to keep moving towards my goals. And what I find truly inspiring and motivating is seeing other people’s success with losing weight, so I thought about dedicating a section to before/after pictures and stories. I’m a frequent visitor on reddit and some of the subreddits there have some impressive weight loss stories I’d like to share on my blog. So I will be adding a section for this on my to-do list 😉 Continue reading…

Setting goals and keeping motivation

So, I’ve been thinking a lot about how to keep myself motivated to lose weight in the long run. In my self-obsessed little head I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to set small goals for myself, so I achieve small victories along the way.

I need to lose half of what I currently weigh in order to reach my ideal weight, which is almost unbearable to think about. Phew, this is the first time I put that in writing, and looking at it makes me think I’ll never make it. But I have to! Continue reading…
