A few weeks ago I turned 49 years old. For the last few years I have really struggled during the few days before my birthday and for a few weeks after the event. I think it is because I am getting older and every year I (unconsciously) “take stock”. What have I achieved in the last year or last few years? This year has been no different. If you are one of my 10 friends who have actually taken the time to send me a private Facebook message, you probably haven’t received a reply as I am, for some strange reason, ignoring my inbox….. I know, this is really bad manners and I apologise to all my friends affected. I promise that I will be getting back to you….soon.
So during this birthday period I couldn’t help but look myself in the mirror and notice, yet again, the extra weight that I have picked up over the last few years. It’s not a pretty sight. I thought about another milestone that has come and gone without me getting “into shape”. This led me to thinking about what event is next. My 7 year wedding anniversary! It’s in August. In just over 90 days! And that is when it hit me…….this question coming from my gut…..Can I really lose a significant amount of weight before that date? And that was it. That was the birth of “My Weight Loss Experiment – Can I really lose 15 pounds in 90 days?”.
Now, firstly, we don’t use pounds, we lose kilos, so the question should probably be: “Can I really lose 8kg in 90 days?” But then I thought that 15 sounded so much better than 8! Plus, when you lose a pound, it sounds better than “I’ve lost 453g”!
So, I will be documenting my journey on these pages. I might even do some videos, who knows! I will document what I am eating, drink and NOT eating and NOT drinking. There is so much room for improvement in my lifestyle! I will also be posting what exercises I am doing or have done as well as any supplements I am trying out to aid me in my journey.
I really want to have my pre-wedding figure back and it’s going to take some effort! So, hold on to your seats and there might be blood and tears along the way! I look forward to sharing it with you!
Cheers to my thinner, healthier self in 90 days!
