We don’t have a scale in my house and honestly I don’t think we ever will, I can see the havoc it would reek in my household and I much prefer the peaceful, tears-free and diet-less environment of my dwelling. The point I’m trying to make is a scale makes you aware of weight gain you sometimes rather not know and that’s what happened when I visited the gynecologist last month.
Now I’m 5’1 but my attitude is 6’2 babyyyyy, I know I should weigh less for my height but Physical Education was my least favourite subject in high school and the thought of exercising honestly makes me sick but when I stepped on that scale in Dr. Gwen’s office last month I was ready to run a whole marathon and invest in a scale to keep track of my weight.
I WEIGH 160 LBS! I WEIGH 160 LBS! I WEIGH 160 LBS! (72.57 kg for my European readers)
I struggle with self-love and body positivity so this lowkey hurt for me but after sitting down and assessing my body, the only thing I’m not fond of is my little fupa/belly fat. It’s the only part of me I would like to see some weight loss because I love my thick thighs, I finally have the gluteus maximus (ass) I’ve been praying for and big boobs run in my family so I’ve accepted mine.
I accept those parts of me but I still want to lose a few pounds and tone my body, I don’t need to be 110 because I don’t want to be, it’s not my desired weight. So I’m going to buy a body shaper, attempt to exercise with my coworker and see how it goes, wish me luck!
Does that green juice 5 day cleanse actually work? It’s on my list of things to try, I’ve stopped drinking cold water and now I’m a lukewarm, room temperature drinking type of gal and I also do that lemon water in the morning thingy (it works wonders for my bowl movement, truthfully).
If you have any tips feel free to share, I’m all ears!
