I'm trying to shock myself in to losing weight, I can't see an end result of ever imagine I can do it!!
What's the equivalent to 33 lbs of fat, I mean what am I actually carrying around ( eg sack of potatoes) if that makes any sense

33lbs of cat

I always imagine a rucksack. 33lbs would be enough to go travelling around the world. For months.

But I'm not into shock. It doesn't last. Are you worth your own time and energy? Do you deserve to feel better? Is the weight bothering you? Then do something.

P.s. join boot camp, it's great!

There's lots of evidence that this won't help you. If we could shock ourselves into losing weight then surely increased cancer risk, higher rates of morbidity, increased risk of heart disease would do that.

In reality it's not our conscious brains we need to convince.
I don't know the answer as I am overweight too, I've just read a lot of stuff on this over the years and making ourselves feel shit about ourselves doesn't make weight loss more likely, it's makes it less likely.

The only thing that seems to be suggested by most weight loss specialists is to not think about the total amount.you want to lose but think of interim targets. E.g 6lbs in 6 weeks.
