I am going to lose weight

January 22, 2011

Confession time: I don’t like dieting, I hate the dieting industry. However, I need to lose about 15kg, and more importantly, inches off my waist as my waist measurement puts me in the high-risk category for heart disease. I am an emotional eater; I eat when I’m upset AND I eat to celebrate or reward myself. Also, while I’m relatively active and not too terribly unfit, I don’t really raise my heart rate enough to effectively burn calories and fat.

So I am aiming for a “lifestyle change”, but that’s semantics really: it’s a diet. It’s time for harsh truths!

I am doing the Michelle Bridges 12-week Body Transformation. I do know how to eat properly, and I know how to exercise, but the frame of mind I’m in, I want someone to tell me what to do and give me that push.

At least, judging by the cookbook, it is real food, not artificial sweeteners and shakes-instead-of-meals. So far today I’ve had a poached egg on wilted spinach with toast for breakfast, and a chicken, eggplant and salad pita bread for lunch. And two cups of coffee (small amount of milk, no sugar) because I am not giving up coffee 😛 I’m hungry now, so I’m going to have a yummy nectarine 🙂

In the interests of accountability, my current weight (as of Wednesday) is 81.3kg.
