Hello and welcome to the body conscious blog!
My Name is Amy and I am a 22 year old female from Auckland New Zealand. I have a bachelor in Civil Engineering Technology and I work in the construction industry in Auckland building bridges! I had a very athletic up bringing however in my adulthood I have gained more weight than I should have and I wish to return to my former athletic physique. You can read more about my story so far here. I have started this blog for a couple of reasons:
- Accountability: This blog is helping me keep accountable for my actions. I treat it like a diary and even if nobody reads it, it keeps a record of my journey so that I can look back and be proud of how far I have come.
- To share my experiences: In my weight loss journey I have always found reading about the success of other people very intriguing. I always stalked around the Success Stories forum on myfitnesspal.com and fantasised about what my post would look like. I also don’t think there are enough blogs out there about the raw detailed experience. People don’t post enough photos of themselves when they are fat and unhappy. They just save them until the big success story reveal. I want to share my raw experience in the hopes of inspiring others. Trust me I really don’t want anyone I know to see the fat photos that I put on here, but if they do oh well, hopefully I will inspire at least 1 person in the process.
- Learn from others: I know a lot of things but I don’t know everything. I love learning, I am a knowledge thief, a sponge! Give me all your knowledge, your experiences your recipes, and successes. I would love to hear from anyone just drop me a comment!
I have recently started living a much healthier life style and am currently following the fast metabolism diet by Haylie Pomroy. I will use this diet until I have achieved the body I desire and then continue living by the principals for the most part in maintenance. Don’t get me wrong I’m going to have chocolate again. It’s just not my focus right now 🙂
I hope you enjoy the site and would love to hear from you.
