No Use crying over split ice-cream

Hi Guys,

I hope you are all doing well!

Today's post is something I have been putting off for a long long time, probably because I was so much in denial that I didn't want it to seem so real.

So as you know or you probably don't know, I went through a whole year dieting to achieve quite a great goal, losing 13 kilos and being able to put on clothes I had never imagined will fit! You can read about my whole journey here:

In my last post on exactly the 12th of February 2014 I weighed 57 kilos and I was looking damn fine, I must say. Today, Monday 8th of June 2015 I weigh 67-68 kilos and I look like I'm in my first trimester.

So were did it all go wrong? Simple... I just didn't care anymore!

It all began when I needed a change in my life, I changed everything from my hair, to my style, my relationship etc etc. In that period all I felt like doing was having fun and nothing else, in fact I dare say that 2014 was probably my best year EVER! I was truly enjoying life, made some great memories and went out and enjoyed myself every weekend. With that however, came a lot of junk food and beer, especially in Summer were my signature drink was Cisk Chill Berry.

However, many might say that I did not gain that much weight, in fact looking back at photos this is not evident, reason being is that although I ate unhealthily, I was doing exercise 2-3 times a week, so I didn't gain any weight!

Things changed during the end of the year. I started comfort eating due to a complicated situation in my life and slowly slowly I started exercising less, especially since I had a new opportunity which took up a lot of my time and I then decided to focus on my career.

Come February/ March , my diet has spiralled out of control. I stopped exercising since I was attending a course during the times of my aerobics classes and assignments got intense that I comfort ate my way through these past couple of months.

Last week, I got a huge wake up call when I went on to try some things I had for summer and nothing fit! I had been rarely going out due to assignments that I didn't need to get dressed up, so I didn't realise how much weight I put on. I also went to try on dresses for my cousin's upcoming wedding and ofc I was not seeing myself I did before.

Today I decided that I will no longer let myself throw what I worked so hard for go to waste and I decided that once again I will start taking my dieting seriously and re-start my journey towards a healthy lifestyle including exercise!

That being said, the support I received online and the therapeutic value I got from writing down my struggles on my blog were what kept me going all those months!

So as I said before, let's do this once again and hey, it's ok to fall off the wagon, because you're strong enough to pick yourself up again and keep on driving!
