These two weeks were hard motivation-wise, I have not been having the best of luck lately and to top it all off, out of the blue my poor cat Timmy passed away.
Although I do have a target and I do want to speed to it, I am being a bit naughty on certain days, thank God I do make up for it on other days by being extra good, at least I still have that.
The only reason I am saying this is that when I do actually reach my target, what will happen? Will I go back to my old ways? Fall back into a habit of eating something quick and convenient? I know I might be a little pessimistic at the moment but yes I am kind of scared of the old Martina coming back.
This weight loss has shown me that my weight has been the thing that has kept me back for a long long time, so no, old Martina, you are staying where you belong, way back in the past.
So these two weeks, Marika gave me a few questions which I will today ( I should be ashamed, after two weeks I am finally focusing on them) answer, keep in mind, I have had a drastic change already so this does affect my answers.
I will end today with these questions, I would love to see your answers, even if you are still thinking of starting your lifestyle change.
- Why are you here?
I am here to make a change, to eat healthier and feel better about my health and ultimately the way I look and feel about my body.
- How do you see yourself when you make the change?
I see myself thinner and not worrying about my lumps and bumps with every piece of clothing I wear, also I see myself embracing my body and loving the way I look.
- What are 3 advantages for this change?
1. Losing my excess fat;
2. Stop binge eating and;
3. Wearing the clothes I always wanted to wear.
- How ready are you for this change? Rate from 1-10
- Why did you choose this score, not less, not more
I chose this score because the want to do this is finally here, however, since everyone is afraid of the uncertainty that change brings, the 2 represents the unknowing.
- How can you improve on this score?
By believing in myself and knowing that this is ultimately good for me and for my self- image.

Ok so let me explain why there is no measurements, basically I was in a hurry to get to work and forgot to ask to be measured. I asked Marika if I should measure myself but we agreed that it's best if they take it for me.
I'm quite impressed that I lost weight, but I was told off for not eating regularly and avoiding fruit. With regards to the questions, Marika told me to re visit them in a few weeks to see the change in motivation.
Since I am off to London in a few days, I can be a bit flexible but I have to still keep in mind not to overdo it, let's hope for the best!
Until next time!
