“I Drink Diet Coke From The Minute I Get Up To The Minute I Go To Bed” – Karl Lagerfeld

Okay so although I am not advocating that one takes direct inspiration from Karl Lagerfeld here, I wanted to share one of my little diet tips with you.

“Halfway Through A BluePrintCleanse & No Longer Feeling Like I Ate A Goodyear Blimp & Washed It Down With Cement” – Olivia Wilde

Okay so as my last post was about my weight-loss epiphanies and such traumas to get me kick-started, I thought I would post about how I actually went about getting in ‘diet mode’. I am someone who struggles with weight loss, I normally get myself motivated for a week or two and then decide it’s all too much, get drunk with my friends and binge on pizza. However, I cannot stress enough – this time, I am determined to make a difference.

“Diets, Like Clothes, Should Be Tailored To You” – Joan Rivers

So, I have recently had a sort of epiphany about my waistline, this accompanied by some real ‘tough love’ by my father over Easter vacation. I have to say, it is possibly one of the worst moments in your life when a parent sits you down and tells you that you are overweight, to the point where you really need to do something about it; but what makes it 10 times worse, is when you know that they’re right.

I have known for some time that I am overweight; I can’t wear the clothes I long to and I always feel like the odd one out in my group of friends – a feeling deemed ‘fat b**** on the end’ by my sister. My family have battled weight gain brought on by emotional eating for years so now I want to do something to change that.
