weight loss

Well nobody said this would be easy, but still the progress is frustratingly slow. The first week I lost 3.5 kg, probably mostly water, cos the following week I gained some, and then lost and went back to the 3.5-kg loss. So 3.5 kg in two weeks, not bad... But I am so overweight, that it feels like the weight loss should go faster in the first weeks. At least that's what they try to make us believe when we watch "Biggest Loser". If I feel like applying for the show? Not really, their methods are not really sustainable! Most part of the participants gain all the weight back.

What I am doing is sticking to a lower calories budget, personal training and some workout on my own. I also do intermittent fasting, avoid sugar and keep a food and workout log. That's something I have never done before , so this time might work out!!!

weight loss

It took me time to admit to myself that I really needed to make something about my overweight.


I have always struggled with my weight, I was born already fat! And during my childhood I was bullied due to my weight and looks. But in my late teenage years, I started working out a lot, eating healthier food, but the biggest change was when I turned 23 - I got myself a personal trainer, an endocrinologist, nutritionist and started working out insanely...about 4-5 hours a day, 5 to 6 times a week. I also started taking weight loss pills, but I had to stop due to side effects. Well, with all these resources, I reached my ideal weight.

It did not last much, when I met my current husband, late 2003, I started to gain weight, he is an awesome cook!!! And when I moved to Sweden in 2006, it was a trip back to obesity, gradual but merciless!

I bet you guys are wondering: why did it take you so much time to see what was happening to you? The truth is - Deep inside I always knew, but refused to admit it... I did exactly like an ostrich, burying its head in the sand.

But since I became a mom, I really had to do something about my overweight - I wanna be here for her for many many years to come, and I wanna be a role model, someone she can be proud of.

Some days ago, after not weighing myself for ages, I ended up accidentally seeing my weight report during pregnancy. So my first step was to weigh myself - it cannot be right!!!! But sadly so, it was true...I have never been that fat! Well I lost the pregnancy weight surplus, and lost some additional weight, but still, I was/am really heavy!!!!

After crying like crazy, and feeling self-loathing, I decided to do something about it. I downloaded and paid for a Premium membership of an app where you keep track of what you eat, and how much you work out etc.

So far so good...it hasn't been a week yet, and I started losing weight that hopefully I will never find back.
