Is there a point where a 50 minute dance workout stops burning like a bitch during the workout and afterwards, because I would like to be there please.

So recently I found out I was 309 pounds (22 stone, 140 Kg) and trust me, it was not muscle, but I am very happy to say that that is no longer the case, I have lost more than a stone and now I am halfway to my goal weight of 280 pounds which I hope to achieve by Christmas. As of 20th October I weigh 294.1 pounds (21 stone, 133.4 Kg). I’m extremely happy.
So much travel planned for the next few months, going to see the lil’ sis tomorrow in Nottingham, seeing Bethan in Laaaandaaaan next week, Nottingham again for the lil’ sis’s birthday in November and going up to Bangor en Gales for Holly’s (scatgash) 23rd in December, fantastic!
I love winter!
I can’t wait for spending a whole day in a massive jumper and still shivering a little, drinking hot chocolate and spiced tea for a little extra warmth, mulled wine, brisk walks under bare trees and of course Christmas! Yay!
I do think I should enjoy a spoopy Halloween first though.
I started calorie counting (watching fats, carbs and proteins intake too) four days ago and it’s quite difficult documenting every morsel that goes down the gullet but I really do feel good, I’m eating a lot less and I’m making healthier choices (no butter, swapping some of the bread I eat for pittas etc) and I have more energy. I know I won’t shift any weight by just changing my diet, but my plan is to get my body used to the new diet for two weeks then to start the C25K program three times a week (once I get paid, so I can buy running shoes and more tracksuit bottoms and t-shirts) and then to add strength training in the new year, once my body is more accustomed to exercise.
I recently found out I weigh over 300 pounds and I can’t accept that I’ve gotten that lazy. 300 says to me that I’ve given up and I don’t accept that. I’ve always been a bit on the large size but there was a point a few years ago where I was around 250 pounds and less depending on the day going to around 230 for a while. My goal is to get down to 280 pounds or less by Christmas this year and then to start building muscle come January which should increase my fat loss and make me feel better in general.
At the moment I’m documenting my calorie intake and exercise with myfitnesspal and plan to continue doing so until I can get my hands on an Apple Watch, when I will continue to use myfitnesspal for calorie intake but use the Apple Watch features to document exercise.
I really hope I can do this. Frickle frackle.
I honestly am happy that you have a faith or belief system and that you find that comforting, but please do not try to push that faith onto me in the wee hours of the morning then get super defensive/angry when I say that I don’t agree with your beliefs and that I’m quite happy not believing in anything spiritual or religious.
