To illustrate the Weight Loss Part of my Marathon which took place in spring 2019, I collected all pics of my journey as I lost weight.

If you want to know what’s the whole thing is about, it is about how I managed to lose 5,3 kgs / 11.6 lbs in 7 weeks working on a sedentary job
When the II part of the Marathon started, I went to the village to visit my relatives. Even though I could use the weights, I couldn’t do it without clothes for the reason I had to travel all the way around the house from my room to the room where the weights were. So I spend a week and a half there and basically had no idea what was my weight, I could just see that I become slimmer. Here is the pic tho
Week 3 Day 1 – 57,3 kgs
Week 3 Day 7 – 56,1 kgs
During Week 3, I started to notice that I am quite behind my weight loss schedule (because I planned to get back to my normal weight by May 15th). This was totally understandable for me, because, as I have always said, I am awesome at gaining weight, but naturally very bad at losing it, regardless of people around me say. So I had to pay even more attention to my diet and physical activity.
Week 4 Day 1 – 56,1 kgs / 123.7 lbs
Week 4 Day 7 – 55,8 kgs / 123 lbs
This was a harsh week, because I understood that I hit a dead weight loss plateau (this is the thing 99% of people face when losing weight). My weight did not decrease, and some days, I found out it even increased a bit. I wasn’t desperate, because I know how it all goes. However, I was aware people actualy watch me losing weight to prove my approach. Therefore, my lagging behind the schedule doesn’t look good; I was not worried about myself, but I was worried that people I could potentially be helpful to will become disappointed in my approach.
However, I had no choice. There is no way of forcing the body to lose weight if it does not feel like it. So I decided to give myself one more week.
This is what every sane person should do in case of weight loss plateau. Instead of forcing self, better give self more time to adapt.
Week 5 Day 1 – 55,9 kgs / 123.2 lbs
Week 5 Day 7 – 55,4 kgs / 122.1 lbs
Week 5 was an interesting experience, too, because despite the fact that I took all the necessary action to manage the weight loss plateau, the weight loss progress was tiny. I was lucky because I went to the dentist and then I recalled that inability to lose weight fast was also partially caused by my upcoming period. This explained everything. I relaxed and allowed my body to function as it did. We girls definitely have more factors to keep in mind when losing weight, in comparison with boys.
Week 6 Day 1 – 55.8 kgs / 123 lbs
Week 6 Day 7 – 54.5 kgs / 120.2 lbs
This week, all my efforts eventually gave results, and I managed to continue to lose weight pretty quickly. The next pic really shows how much smaller I became.
Day 1 – 54.8 kgs / 120.8 lbs
Day 7 – 53.4 kgs / 117.7 lbs
By the end of Week 7, my weight was 53.4 kgs, which means that I managed to lose 5,3 kgs / 11.6 lbs in 7 weeks. I believe this is a very cool result. I still keep this weight, by the way, which can be seen in my Instagram acc.
I know most people believe it is possible to lose 10 kgs in one month, and they want to achieve this goal that fast. However, the truth is, it is impossible in the majority of cases. I have lost 5,3 kgs in 1,5 months and honestly, that was pretty fast. If I was totally free of my job I could do it even quicker, but I spend lots of time sitting. So, I cannot teach you how to lose 10 kgs in one month, but if you would love to lose 5 kgs in 1,5 months and forever, this is what I can share.
