Hi Everyone! I am Zofia and I am from Canada
here's my statement (which I will come back read everyday to remind myself why I do this hahah)
I am currently 240 and 6 feet tall. I personnally think I am beautiful and I certainly do not want to lose weight to be skinny.
I need to loose 40 pounds to be healthier
. There is a lot of heart disease, ad cholestorol and breast cancer in my family. My mom just got diagnosed with breast cancer and one of the cause is believed to be your diet (meaning what you eat not dieting)
So I read about being healthy in books and I went to see my doctor. Although he says I should be 175 for a healthy weight according to BMI, I dont think so. I believe that chart to not take in consideration HUGE factors such as your muscles, your boobs (some has bigger than others) and your bones.
after discussing this with him we agreed 200 pounds for my height and my mass is healthy.
So there is my goal
The diet I am using is Sonoma because I read about a lot of diets out there and that one is the only one that makes sense to me. I do not believe in purging and not eating things I like. Removing carbs from a diet does not make sense to me nor is removing all fats. I love vegetables and fruits and never had trouble with them so this diet should be perfect. My mom tried sonoma last year and lost 20 pounds and is still maintaining her weight. I have tried weight watchers and after suffering for 3 months (although I did try the 80S weight watcher. HARD) I gain it all back during university and do not wish to go down that path again.
I now have a steady job and life in general so I believe its time for me to be healthy!!!
of course im including exercising every second day for 40 mins of cardio I will include weights later down the road.
Be 210 by September 30. If I achieve that, I can achieve my goal of 200 by end of october. Otherwise, I will recalculate and maybe be on the diet for an extra month.
I started the diet monday, easy as a pie over the week. Never had trouble.. my nightmare is weekends.... Im scared. I need all the willpower in the world to go through the first weekend. After that I should be alright... right>? LOL
Thankx for reading, Im chatty :P
