Made of Flaws


Before I start, I would like to make this clear. I am fully aware that this post might receive mixed responses, but I am prepared for it and this is purely just based on my experiences…

N.B. Most of this was written two years ago.


As long as I’ve known, I’ve always been bigger than the average person around my age. Between the ages of 8-18, I was a bit chubby, but health wise,  I became overweight as soon as I hit 19.

Food Diary


This year so far, I have not been going regularly to the gym. I have been ill and only trained whenever I felt fit enough for it. But it is now time to get back to training properly again.

I do apologise about the picture quality and the dirty mirror :P

My Weight Loss Journey


Today I’m going to talk about something that I’ve never been able to speak about confidently before. Those of you who know me personally, already know that I started my weight loss journey at the beginning of the year, in March to be specific. Have I achieved my goal weight yet? Nope. But one thing that I have come to the realisation about, is that I am most definitely not the only person who struggles with weight loss.

To put it bluntly, I was obese. At the beginning of my journey, I went to the gym about six times per week and ate three times a day. I made sure that half of my plate was filled with veg, quarter of it with protein and the other quarter with carbs. Continue reading “My Weight Loss Journey”
