While I’ve been using this blog as my means of letting out anxiety, specifically about my weight and the way that it has affected me, I always thought that if I used it to check-in with myself and others on a daily basis about weight loss/gain, my food, exercise, goals – people would get bored. I then had a second thought, and think that maybe this would be a good idea for me. One of my favourite quotes “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” – and I think being accountable and involving a community to share my experience, may be something I need. I’ve been in Korea for 2 years without going home, and lately, have craved some kind of community – something like Weight Watchers, which is non-existent here (can you guess why!), and think that maybe it would be a good option for me when I go home.
Having said all of this, I’ve decided to start a 57 day challenge for myself. I will go home in 57 days, and having put on 10-11kg of the 16kg I had previously lost, I decided that I did not want to get off that plane to family and friends looking like the same big girl I was when I left 2 years ago.
I really hope you’ll follow and support me. I want criticism and encouragement – an online community instead of a social face-to-face one that which is so hard to find here. follow me to my next post where I can begin my challenge, Day 1.
