Lula's journey..

Hi everyone..
Am Lula, and am here because I feel that I MUST be accountable to somebody!!
I guess that the purpose of this site is more for encouragements and advices but a group really miss me..
I'll feel more comfortable - and serious - if I could at least keep a public record of my weight changes..
So am starting a 1000calories diet as from tomorrow, I've already done it once I lost 1.5kg for the 1st week and I felt GREEEAT!!
Unfortunately, chocolates, fast food and soft drinks look more attractive than veggies..
And am actually at my highest
But!!
Now is the time to make things move and to claim back my life - with God's help!!
Am fed up to
1.feel ashamed of myself
2.avoid people
3.avoid photos
4.avoid mirrors
5.have OH so many difficulties to find a jeans
6.be exhausted and out of breath just to walk and I don't talk about climbing stairs..
7.see sexy bikinis on models or on other people ONLY..
8.look like a big mama when am not even married and that I don't have kids - no offense please!! this is just MY reality
9.have knees that hurt a lot because of my weight
10.not be able to wear high heels because of my knees problems
11.hear nasty comments about my weight
12.feel that people pity me!!
SO for all these reasons, I MUST LOSE WEIGHT!! and I will, with God's grace!

Hey there lula, I have a large amount of weight to lose, as you can tell looking at my stats. You can do this, what gives me hope sometimes is looking at the before and after pictures. I have tried plan after plan and I always get frustrated and give up, so you just gotta find something that works for you that you know you can stick with. I am on juddd, only been on plan for a week, but so far I love it! Good luck to you and anything is possible with god!

Hello reptogirl, thanks for your encouragement dear!!
I'll take some photos tonight to start my "before and after" album!!
First I will add those taken during last Christmas, I've NEVER EVER looked that fat in any pictures!

Talking about the word "fat"...
I went to an old lady's house today, during the conversation she looked at me and asked "so what about you fat girl..?"

FAT GIRL!!!
I already know am fat!
I also know that I did everything to become fat.
But still....
That hurt me


Anyway..!
Day 1 today, fine day despite the fact that I missed my breakfast - shame on me
And I've replaced my carb+fat+milk (1/2 bread and peanut butter + milk) by a cereal bowl with milk.

So I wish all of you a good and healthy week, and may God bless you!!
I'll be back next monday

20/05/2013 = 84kg

That old lady was rude and obnoxious to make that remark but just remember that some people are just clueless and stupid. You can't take their dumb comments personally. You are a great person no matter what you weight. And, you are doing really well with your plan so know that you will achieve your goals!

Sorry about this lady, it's hard not to take offense and to let it upset you. I've found this forum the best tonic so far

Good luck with your quest! I look forward to seeing how you get on x

Hi girls!!
Thank you so much for your encouragements!!
Am so happy to be no longer alone and to have people who can understand what am going through!

I was supposed to do my first weight in next monday but due to some changes in my activities I had to do it today itself.
So the result..

20/05/2013 = 84kg
25/05/2013 = 82.4kg (-1.6)





I just feel great!
Whether it's a lot or not I don't really care.
Am just happy that I've been more serious this time
However, the hardest is yet to come.
The, oh so hard, second week...
For me it's the second week and not the first week which is the most difficult.

I'll be back next monday, meanwhile I wish you all good luck and good health.
May God bless all of you and help you to make the good choice.

Cheater!!
I feel like I've cheated myself..
Oh I hate that feeling..!

A chocolate slab, a WHOLE chocolate slab!!

I've been on diet numerous time before, but never did I ever felt that way..
Before, cheating was .... banal, trivial, insignificant
Now... I feel like I've sabotaged myself, I've done the utmost fault, a paramount error!

No! no! there's no exaggeration!!

Am annoyed but at the same time I think that I've learnt interesting things today:
1) I must be VERY cautious with week 2, it's a deadly week for "diets"
2) This time, I've taken this feel better-feel wealthier eating pattern much more seriously than ever before!!

So I won't lament myself but take action for a better tomorrow..

It's not much, and I need to be more serious.
But am soooo happy that I've been able to lose some grams again
I feel so much better, I've been able to wear a top which was too tight previously and I received a lot of compliment at my work place...

As from tomorrow PROMISE I'll be a good girl and be much more serious about this journey!!

Wish you all a good week, may God bless you and guide you toward the new and healthier you.

Can't keep the same weigh day anymore.
Will have to shift from Monday to Saturday.
Have started weight loss massages yesterday.
Part 1 of 3.
It hurts a lot and today my upper ab is still aching.
I did some workouts 2 days during this week but these also need some re-adjustments.

But I feel ok.
And happy...
Cause I'VE DONE SOMETHING, I didn't just sit and complain about my situation I'VE TAKEN ACTION!!!!

I've dropped my 1000kcal diet for the time being for numerous reasons but I'll be back on track soon, VERY soon.
I have to combine my massage sessions, a good eating pattern and the workouts.





Meanwhile, good luck and God's blessings to all those who will read me.
Have a nice week-end

AM BACK!!!
After too many weeks of:
diseases, chocolates, procrastination, laziness, discouragements, the list is long..!
But now I can't even look back!

AM OBESE..!

Never thought this would happen to me..
Never realized IT WAS happening to me!

Always believed that it was ok..
Despite the nasty comments, the size of clothes going bigger and bigger, I did realize that my body was changing but I refused to accept the fact that I was losing control..!
Thought that I was stronger, that "tomorrow" would be better.
But tomorrow never came..

That's why am starting TODAY!!

If I want a new result, then I must change the usual process.
I'll make a list of DON'T and keep it in my purse + a photo of me actually!!

I feel tired..
Tired, physically because of the extra weight
Tired, emotionally
Tired, because I had quit too much in the past and now am really not happy about myself!!

So I'll give myself 22 weeks nearly 6 months, to become the chick I know is hiding beneath all these layers of fat..
It is actually 2:44 am, am going to bed and will wake up before 7 am.
I'll weight in then.
(I slept a lot during the day)

1. 11-Aug =
2. 18-Aug =
3. 25-Aug =
4. 01-Sep =

18. 08-Dec =

21. 29-Dec =
22. 05-Jan =

Ok, come on girl, you can do it!!
Anyway, you'll have to do it if you don't want to die prematurely..!!

Best Wishes!
