March 6, 2017: Initial Weight!

Good evening!  Finally, I am getting some writing done today.  I am doing a quick post before bed because I really want to commit to this blog, and to my health.  Below are my ‘before’ photos.  Note that my start weight is 235.  I will do a weigh in each week.  I don’t really have a ‘goal weight’ in mind.  My main goal is to develop a healthier relationship with food, healthier eating habits, and to get stronger, and faster.

I am not training for anything in particular, I just want to take good care of my health and be strong!  🙂

I will get a measuring tape and take those measurements as well.  I will try and get that posted by tomorrow.  As you can see, I am quite, flabby.  I am all for body positivity, which is exactly why I am starting this journey.  To take better care of my body and myself.  I see a lot of ‘fat’ people who talk about how they think they are disgusting, etc.  I won’t do that.  I am not here to put myself down, or to be negative about my body.  If there is anything I have learned in being all different sizes, yes, I was even bigger than this before, it’s that you have to love yourself on your journey.  Love yourself DURING, and BEFORE, or you will never love yourself AFTER.

Therefore, I won’t say anything negative about my body.  My body has taken me this far, and will take me even farther if I do what I can do take better care of it.  I hope that in me doing this I can encourage others to do the same.  I want this to be a place of encouragement for all!  Thank you, and have a wonderful evening.

  1. All the best on beginning this journey! I love love love your body positivity here. It’s something I’ve always struggled with and fought to work on so I’m inspired reading this post. I like the commitment to not say negative things about your body at any stage, I think we all need a bit more of that.

    1. Thank you! I have found it to be much more helpful to treat yourself better. Loving your body at every stage is a process but it’s important if we are to be happy once our body looks however it is we want it to look. 🙂

  2. I love that post – it`s so honest, brave and positive. I, too, used to suffer from Binge Eating Disorder, and I can reassure you that you CAN recover. I tried all kind of approaches, but the one which helped me was cognitive behaviour therapy – it really started in the head.

    Weeks of food diaries confirmed that, with all my starving and bingeing, altogether, I was consuming too many calories overall. Because of the bingeing, I was first incredibly scared to stop starving, but my therapist convinced me to give it a try, and, *every single day* I savoured one (one!) bar of chocolate, saying to myself that I could have another one tomorrow. My bingeing did not stop over night, but it decreased. My calorie intake did not change for quite a while, but it became more balanced – my eating became normal. It wasn`t till a few years later that I lost weight (through low carbing at night only), but I was happier, not starving or bingeing and therefore not anxious at all.

    With the actual weight loss, measuring helped enormously. I found that for every kg of weight, I lost a centimeter all over in average, and on weeks where I didnt lose any weight, I lost centimeters and vice versa. Glad I measured both, as there was always a success in one of the two which kept me going…

    Kelly, you`re beautiful already, and I`m really looking forward to following your journey… x

    1. Awww thank you so much for your support. It’s so nice to hear that recovery is possible, with enough hard work and effort. I completely agree with you that it is largely mental. I had to be in the right mindset to be able to start doing this, I figured I may never get there unless I at least tried to document it. I think it will help me tremendously to be accountable for what I am doing. 🙂 You are beautiful as well x!
