I came home from university a few days ago and looked into the mirror only to realize how out of control I let my weight get during my first year. This blog is meant to be a map of my journey. This is not a quick fix to my weight but a change in lifestyle.

Sex: Female Height: 5'2
SW: 142 (as of May 10 2012)
GW1: 130
GW2: 120
UGW: 110-115

Total pounds lost so far: 11-15 (As of September 1 2012)

Kg Lost: 6-7 (As of September 1 2012)

NOT DOING WEIGH INS ANYMORE. Look at progress photos if you are curious of how things are going.

Not a certified nutritionist or anything like that. These are just weight loss ideas and things that have worked for myself.

Finally Motivated

1. The watch is your enemy. I’m serious. Do you know the feeling when you just started your first mile & you are already panting/dying and you just glance over to check the time/distance and you suddenly are like “OH MY GOD I CANT DO THIS 36 MINUTES TO GO AND I CANT BREATH I CANT CANT”? You shouldn’t stop there, honey. You should cover your watch with something and you should focus on the NOW and not the remaining miles. Instead of watching the time, music is a lovely substitute. Usually a song is ~3:30 min, 2 songs are like 7 minutes. So you will run from song to song and not from minute to minute. On top of that you will gain motivation from your awesome playlists. (my running theme)
2. Focus on your goal. Focus on a reward, you run for something, right? Maybe you want to get into shape or be fitter or whatever. Imagine Ryan Gosling waiting you at the finish line or looking hot or feeling & being healthy.
3. Focus on your problems. Running is the perfect place to release your stress. Everyone has problems, what makes difference is your reaction, the way you deal with your problems. Running is a challenge, you fight yourself, your problems, your insecurities. Let them come to you, and during your run, you will free yourself from them. Run your problems out.
4. Have a ‘keep calm’ song. ‘Keep calm’ songs are (surprise!:)) keeping you calm. When you feel like hyperventilating & you are like “i can’t do this, i want to stop” over & over again, use a keep calm song. And breathe more. Long, nice breaths will stabilize your heart rate.
5. Feel your body. That’s my favorite method (to be honest, I’m running for this feeling:)). I was a swimmer during my high school career (like 2-7 hours training everyday, yay!). And swimming is quite boring (you even can’t have your music) and challenging. So I started to focus on my body. My lungs, how I am getting breath, my legs, how they work. My arms, the motions, I started to watch my body and pay attention to my body. And my body in return kept me in the present, so I was just swimming, nothing more. ♥

I love this! 

I always do these things! To people who want to run, try these! :)
