The day l found out l weigh as much today as l did 9 months pregnant

The day l found out l weigh as much today as l did 9 months pregnant

I nearly screamed when l stood on the scales today. I've known for weeks my weight has crept up and l can no longer get into the majority of my clothes. I suffered a bi-lateral pulmonary embolism six years ago and have used that as an excuse ever since to not exercise. I need to make a change in my fitness lifestyle

Well you have made a good start by coming here, so well done you.

Making the decision to change is the hard bit. The rest is just showing up every day, eating well and moving.

I've never had babies but I realised I needed to lose weight when I told the receptionist at the gym that I thought their scales were wrong - because I weighed 19.5 stone - and she said they'd been checked the week before. Oops. It really is easy to fool ourselves. But as Rignold said: you've made a good start. Repetition is the key to keeping it going.

Couch to 5k is a great programme to improve your fitness, well done you for deciding to do it, add in a healthy balanced diet and you'll be on your way to achieving your goal.

As the others have said, the key is sticking with the positive steps and changes you make.

Good luck!

Same here - it is a bit of a shock but you've now made a decision to do something about it which is the first step 👍🏼 Look at your eating habits too as that will help with the weight loss and the exercise will help your fitness and together you will see results. I have recently graduated as a C25ker and am using MyFitnessPal app to monitor diet and can really see a huge change in my body.

You've got loads of support on here so go fir it!
