In August 2012 I started my weight loss journey at 18st 12lb and a BMI of 46. After changing my eating habits, enduring 10 boot camp sessions, completing the NHS Healthy Change Physical Activity on Referral Service and subsequently joining the local gym, I have managed to get down to 15 st 3lb and a BMI of 37.
While I am pleased with my results, I am aware I still have a long way to go. My weight loss results have started to hinder me rather than inspire me as the thoughts "I've lost so much weight, I can't put it all back on eating this" and "After being on a diet since August, I deserve this" have started to creep in.
I had an operation a month ago which prohibited exercise for 4 weeks. I have been eating poorly and not exercising and the weight has started to creep up again.
Needless to say, it's been a difficult journey losing weight and I got fed up of telling myself no. I lost ALL motivation for the last couple of months. I've been slack and I am getting back into it. I don't want to waste all my effort and results. Tonight I'm going to the gym for the first time in a couple of months. Wish me luck!
