I'm just 12lbs away from my goal weight!!!
"Baby steps, ma cherie, baby steps" - Blair Waldorf.
I'm Lizzie and I'm 20 years old, living in the UK.
I've struggled with my weight since I was about 9 or 10 years old, using food as a means of comfort from a very young age due to difficulties faced and issues with self esteem.
By 16, I was over 12 stone and by 18, I'd hit 13 stone and I weighed in at 182lbs. Being 5'4, this meant I was very much overweight.
Through hard work and a change in my lifestyle, I've managed to reach 144lbs and I'm working towards the final goal of around 120-130lbs - whatever feels comfortable.
I'm trying not to focus so much on losing weight, because it's not the best indicator for me as to how my progress is coming along. I'm trying to focus more on my measurements because that's how I buy clothes. I don't go into a shop and say "Can I buy a dress to fit 160lbs?" I go by sizes.
I don't see this as a diet because I'm trying not to restrict myself only until I lose the weight. It's a lifestyle change because I want to alter my habits and become healthy for the rest of my life.
I'd love for you to join me on my journey!

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.
You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:
"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.
Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.
