I laugh at people who say New Year’s Resolutions never work

It felt honest-to-God amazing to hear “wow, you’ve lost weight”/”you look good” from so many people I hadn’t seen in ages this weekend.

Honestly don’t think I need to lose a pound more nowadays. I’m so happy with how I look and how far I’ve come :)


Right, so I’ve been on a diet since January, as most of my followers have probably figured. I’m at a good weight now and I’m happy, so I’m really just looking at maintaining my weight now.

So here’s my problem: recently I’m finding that I’m thirsty like all the time, kinda lethargic (though that could just be a side-effect of being a student, I guess) and get dizzy/faint very easily. Standing up gives me such a massive head-rush every time. This is obviously not great.

So here are my questions (mostly to any fitblr followers, or people who’ve had these symptoms from something else): 

  • I’m eating about 900 calories a day, and I’m struggling to get my calorie count any higher and still eat healthy foods. How on earth do I do it?!
  • Has anyone had these symptoms, and are they just a side-effect of weight-loss or could it be something else? Like anaemia, say? I’ve read that they’re symptoms of diabetes too, but I feel like that’s not very likely.
  • Is it worth me going to the doctor’s? I’ve been putting it off because I really don’t want to be taken off my pill or anything silly because of it.

I just wondered if anybody has had this, and whether it’s linked to the diet and exercise or not?

The pictures don’t show it completely and I’ve lost a bit more since the second photo, but they’re the best I could find.

I’m not skinny at all, and nor do I want to be, but in the first picture I’m a few pounds away from clinical obesity (the picture doesn’t do it justice) and I decided something had to give when climbing stairs was enough to cause an asthma attack.

I haven’t subscribed to any fad diets or even joined a gymn, I just ate healthily and started walking/cycling a lot more. I’ve lost almost 3 stone and 3/4 dress sizes over 7 months and now I’m totally healthy. I’m not skinny but I still think that my body looks pretty good now. I’m proud of my efforts and what I’ve achieved here.

7 months ago, I weighed  11 stone 11 and was a few pounds away from being clinically obese. I weighed myself today and I’m now 9 stone.

Hard work and perseverance paid off. I’m now slap-bang in the middle of the ‘healthy’ BMI range and I’m at my goal weight. I’m really happy!!

I might post pictures tomorrow.
