hello! my name is denny, i’m 19 and this is a weight loss blog. my motivation for starting this is that i no longer want to feel depressed because of how much i weight, i want to fit into all those pretty clothes, wear swimsuit without feeling embarrassed and most importantly be healthy!
-this is a rather long story so you can just skip to the bottom where i mention my weight-
when i was 16 i experienced the so called biliary colic which was extremely painful and i didn’t know what was happening to my body then. a little after that i discovered that what caused this was small dust-like stones (approximately 1-2mm) in my gallbladder and that it is entirely my fault that this happened.
apparently my lifestyle of eating junk food, not lifting a finger and etc. was the main problem. so at that point i was told that i either operate it or try to live as healthy as possible…
of course my first steps did not work out that well. at the beginning i was still getting those biliary colics and it was not funny. got taken in the hospital twice for this, where i just felt lifeless, had no appetite and eventually lost some weight.
the second time i got discharged something had to change. if it wasn’t for my grandparents to take care of me, at that time, i’d be lost. my life changed completely, especially my diet. the food was not even food at one point. i had to eat what a newborn would. of course i was forbidden all those snacks, chocolate, canned or packed foods, everything had to be cooked. fried things, eggs, milk, red meat were a no-no. the only “safe” thing i could eat was rice, chicken soup (oh what chicken soup! basically water + chicken, because i could not eat half of the ingredients) and potatoes. could not eat fruits without peeling them first and it was too “dangerous” to eat them whole (because we didn’t know how the gallbladder would react) so i had to intake them in juice form.
after a few months of this new lifestyle (of course gradually getting back to what a normal person would eat except for the junky food part) i went to check my gallbladder situation and nothing was changed! i still had the dust-stones floating in there and i lost every hope.
but here i am, 3 years later, haven’t had a biliary colic (knock on wood) and am feeling pretty good on the health side.. if it wasn’t for my weight.
right now it feels like i have completely forgotten how bad it felt to have those pains, and i started allowing myself to consume junk and “forbidden” for the gallbladder foods. i’m scared that if i keep on going like this i could end up in my previous situation, but somehow that doesn’t seem to bother me. this is also one of the reasons why i started this blog, so i can remind myself how important it is to eat healthy!
-now let’s talk about my weight-
when i was about 15 years old or even younger i was reaching 82kg(180lbs), i never really cared about my weight at that time but when i saw the scale i wanted to cry, my grandfather then started to monitor what i ate and slowly but surely i started to lose weight. after that when i turned 16 i weighted about 75kg(165lbs) and then the whole thing i mentioned above happened. with my stay in the hospital i dropped down to 67-68kg(147-149lbs) for about a weak, which was too extreme i know, but there was nothing i can do about it. and after that what came are the events described above which lead me to drop down to 61kg(134lbs). i was amazed by how good i looked (not perfect, but good!). but by the next year i was back to 68kg(149lbs), which is my weight on the date of starting this blog.
now i’m desperate to drop down to 61kg(134lbs) again and even 55kg(121lbs), but that’s too soon to think about! i just want those damn 7kg(15lbs) gone and that’s why i made this blog! everyone says that it’s a lot better to keep myself motivated if i start one of these so i finally made one! let’s see how this journey will go!
hope we can get along well! i want to follow as many people who run healthy diet blogs as possible!
please feel free to msg me your diet blogs! it will be greatly appreciated!
