I've never posted on this site so here goes.
My husband and I have been together for 6 years. Over these 6 years I have put on 4.5 stone.
My husband is 6ft 4 and weighs 12 stone.
We've been trying to concieve for 2 years and we went to the Fertility Clinic on Monday and were told that it is unlikely we'll concieve naturally.
To be eligible for IVF you have to have a BMI of below 30. My current BMI is 38 at 16 stone and 5ft4.
I've been very emotional as I've been battling with my weight since a teenager. I'm 31 years old.
But, I've started cooking from cook books and sticking to the recipe and portions in the dish so I don't overeat. I've also been putting the recipes into MyFitnessPal so I know exactly what calorie intake I'm having.
I never realised how important it is to weigh your food. I'm vegan and thought I had a healthy diet. By weighing food I soon realised my portion sizes were way too big.
I'm joining Slimming World tonight and going to have a lool round the local gym. We've also started swimming.
My main worry is keeping motivated. I am a yoyo dieter and this time I need to change for good.
Does anyone have any advice for keeping motivated?
