so when I was off college and physical health/depression was really bad, I gained quite a lot of weight. I wasn’t what you’d call ‘fat’, but I was starting to not fit into my size 12 (UK) jeans. something needed to happen before it got out of control.
I’ve been trying to lose some since starting college. obviously all I can do is walking in the way of exercise, but it does burn a lot of calories when walking on crutches.
since being at college, I’ve swapped all my crappy snacks for healthy choices. and I’ve been walking a lot. the difference is absolutely amazing.
First week, I lost 3lbs. Second week, I lost 1lb. and this week, the most active I’ve had since starting college because it was my first full week of hardcore lessons, I somehow lost 5lbs.
I weight 11st 2lbs at first. I now weight 10st 6lbs, after three weeks. my first aim was 10st, and I am still aiming for that. but once I lose the 6lbs, I may go a little further. Depends what my body looks like.
I now fit not only into the 12 jeans that were getting tight, but I also fit into jeans that I didn’t at all. one pair, I bought before gaining weight, and they didn’t fit me. Now they do!
I’m honestly so proud because it’s not at all easy to lose weight when disabled, as you know. I’ve still been eating as much as ever, but it’s the right things, and I am amazed at the effect!
