My weight loss journey started on 24th November 2015 and since then, at my lowest, I’ve lost around 30lbs. I had been in New York for 2 weeks and came back at the heaviest I’ve ever been – it was devastating. Weight loss does not come easily to me and I struggle with food issues everyday. I’m hoping that by writing these monthly posts, I will do this the healthily way rather than eating half as much as I should and yo-yoing in weight.
I have an array of body confidence issues that have stemmed back as long as I can remember which have crept in my head every day. Looking after myself, eating well and excercising isn’t a vanity thing for me, it’s just a way to stop the self-hating thoughts that creep up when I know I’m not taking care of my body.
Every month I will be weighing in and discussing how my month went and what things I did toward my progress. You can follow what I ate by adding me as a friend on MyFitnessPal @LuciOlivia27

I let so loose from around the 15th – 30th December and regret not trying to contain myself a little more in the holidays. But it’s done and now I’ll have to work twice as hard in Jan to pull it back. At my lowest I was 137lbs so it’s really been a kick in the teeth to step on the scales today but I’m hoping at least a few pounds is bloat and water retention. I’m more determined than ever and with a wedding approaching, I need to lose body fat, get in shape and finally be the size I’ve always wanted to be. Bring on 2018.
