Losing weight is not something that you can just decide and bang it happens. Everyone knows (ok maybe most) what to eat and not to eat but its easier said than done. Eating unhealthy is triggered by so many feelings and thoughts and events that most can’t help but find comfort in food. You just have to ask yourself, are you happy the way you are?. When was the last time you felt good about yourself?.
Well the last time I felt good about myself was in 2011 when I did the Cambridge diet and lost 4 stone! in 3 and half months.. I couldn’t believe it!, I looked so darn good.. so confident and new then that being slimmer made me feel so happy and healthy.That is when I realised if I have a grounded diet I’m following and they tell me what to eat everyday till I’m used to portion control and ingredients i can do anything!.
I’ve always been a big girl ever since I was young, used to even be picked on for my weight growing up in Zimbabwe and coming to UK it continued. So when you are not body confident other things take their toll. Although the Cambridge diet really helped, I gained it all back and then some when I started eating sadly. Also what didn’t help although a good thing in my life was finding someone in my life. Then came the entry of Nigerian food into my life :0…so ever since 2011 I’ve been on a downward spiral. Tried doing the Cambridge Diet again a few years back but didn’t succeed.
Now in 2016, I have decided to do it all by myself. Its only been a month into my lifestyle change of eating more fruit and veggies less heavy carbs but I know I can do it!.Especially when trying to lose this baby weight that I gained while pregnant. He is now 3 months old so its time mummy became yummy again.
