Hey there :)
I’m a 20 years old French girl. I started at 67kg (147 pounds) . Height: 1m68 (5’6”).
The whole goal of this tumblr is to help me changing my lifestyle. I fight to turn it into a healthy lifestyle.
I post pictures of successful and/or fit women to motivate me. I also post recipes and tips about sports and weight loss so, when in doubt, I read my blog again to make the right decisions.
I started changing my lifestyle in February 2012. From February to June, I didn’t lose any weight. These 3-4 months were all about focusing on how I eat. Just trying to eat exactly the right amount so I’m not hungry any more was really hard. I’m used to finish my plate even if I’m full. It’s all about eating what I need, not more.
It may seem a lot of time just to be able to do that. But since I want long-term changes, it doesn’t seem that long to me. See, I don’t want to be pretty for summer and starting everything over again next year. I want to be healthy for life. And I am really close to the point where I don’t need to think “should I eat that or not?”.
For example, in May, I was studying hard. I had little time to exercise and I was really anxious. One day, I kind of binged. I would sit at my desk and just eat bread, cookies, chocolate every 15minutes… I listened to my body but I felt so bad, I just needed that food to continue working for my exams. The next day, I barely ate. Why? Because I listened to my body and I didn’t want to. In May, I didn’t lose or gain any weight, even though I didn’t exercise much. Just because my body can regulate itself. I just relied on the feeling “I don’t crave that food like I did 5 minutes ago, I’m not full but I’m not hungry anymore”.
That something all thin girls know, but not girls like me, weight problems.
More to come
