    I mean it this time

    I've tried losing weight many times before, including once with help of a train log here on the Hive, which maybe lasted for a week.

    But this time around is different. Why? Because I say so. And because my weight has gone too far.

    I'm 19 years old, 168cm and I weigh 95kg. My biggest two issues are that I am terribly out of shape and often binge on sweets.

    I don't have a concrete plan on how exactly I will fix this, but I know I will.
    I am an absolute beginner when it comes to sports, so don't expect me to partake in a million programs and challenges at once. I will do my best to go hard on myself.

    This will be my daily log to hold myself accountable and stick with it. I will track my activity, my food and my binges, as well as my mood and motivation.

    My goals are:
    In general:
    Lose weight
    Stop being addicted to sugar
    Stop stress-eating
    Become more fit
    Become better looking
    Fit in dresses and feel good wearing them
    Get below 90kg
    Get below 85kg
    Get below 80kg
    Stay stable below 80kg
    Go even lower
    Swim 2km in an hour
    Run 1k, 2k, 5k

    Let's get this party started๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    Welcome! Sometimes saying that you're going to do something will make you stand behind it. I hope to see much of you here.


      Good luck! Sweets are my weak point too! Having a to-do list really seems to help me and it seems like you're on that checklist life also.
      Looking forward to making progress with you!


        Hi Sonchek!

        You have some great goals there--especially the more specific ones. Building a plan for how you will achieve them is the next step--but it does not need to be a great master plan that will solve all the problems in the universe at once. Start small. Pick something specific that you can do right now. Then do it!

        If you're currently not doing any regular exercise, then I would recommend starting with 15 Days of Fitness or 30 Days of Fitness. Both give you a very simple goal which you can customize to work with your current fitness level and sticking with either challenge will set you well on your way to building a consistent fitness practice going forward.

        I see that you have some running goals. Have you checked out DAREBEE's running section? There's quite a bit of content there, including several running programs geared to different levels. From Walking to Running is the best one for someone with no current athletic conditioning, but check out 8 Weeks to 5K as well and see which approach looks better for you where you're at now.

        Dietary changes are hard. I think your plan to log what you are currently doing is a good one. If you can figure out what your specific triggers are for the stress eating, then you can make a plan for how to make change.

        You can do this! We'll be here to cheer you on. But only you can do the work.


          Sonchek Welcome to the hive! Some very good goals to accomplish. I look forward to your journey
