Hi everyone, I'm 26 and weight 162.2 kg.
I'm ready to lose weight more than ever before. I have been a yo-yo dieter all my life. But I think now I am starting to 'crack' the cycle *fingers crossed*.
I love food, it is my friend and my companion. It has been my crutch and my comfort throughout life. It has been my reward. I am struggling to get over the emotional attachment to food. So any advice will be much appreciated.
I have started going to the gym (it's very cheap around £25 a month) so I'm happy with that.
It's nice to work up a sweat, and in just under a week I feel a little better although I've not lose much (if anything!).
I am inspired to do this now. After a recent trip to both hospital and primark. I am getting sick and tired of having to buy my clothes online or going to outlet stores :(.
Anyways, I am going very slowly this time. I have given up sugary fizzy drinks (coca cola, dr pepper etc) since January - and haven't touched one since. I genuinely don't crave them, and I was getting through litres etc.
I hope to meet some cool peeps here, and am willing to give/receive any support I can.
