How I Finally Started To Loose Weight!

Hey guys!
Sorry I haven't blogged in a while, I guess I just haven't been motivated, I've kind of shut off from the blogging world for the last few months. You may have seen I had a few goals for this year. Now I do this every year and never bother to actually achieve them, but this time I have been working really really hard to!

One of my main goals for this year was to loose weight, get healthy and be overall happier with my body. I'm quite tall and so have always been tall and slim, but in the recent few years I have grown more and more unhappy with the way I look. So after some strong will, this is what my recent hard work has achieved;

Now I know I wasn't massive before, and I know I am wearing different clothing, but I can finally fit into my normal sizes and wear fitted stuff. I have been struggling to loose weight for the last 2 years, I had been forcing myself to go to the gym and actually gained rather than lost anything. So I stopped going to the gym because let's face it - I HATE IT.

For me it's my eating. I know obvious right! I had it in my head that if I went to the gym alone, I would loose weight just from that and could eat what I wanted. NAH. After a lot, and yes I mean a lot of motivation I have steered clear of buying my fave sugary snacks (my weakness is chocolate), I've avoided Mcdonalds and been eating the good stuff or choosing healthier alternatives. I have been eating like this the last 2 months and it's safe to say I prefer healthier meals! YAY.

My heaviest was 69KG and now I'm 64KG, that's a total loss of 5 KG or 11 Pounds! ( bare in mind I'm tall) For me this is a massive achievement because I couldn't get past a certain mark for a long time.  Now I have a holiday in a month and then another one the month after, so I need work even harder. As I hate the gym and can't get motivated to work out at home, I thought I might try going for 30 min runs 3 times a week. My job is very active luckily, I walk around 10,000 steps a day so even if I don't run I know i'm doing enough exercise.

So yea, who knew all you hear about choosing healthier alternatives actually works! Do you have any advice on how to loose a few extra pounds?

ps. Green tea after a big meal or before bed is good!
