Good morning I am a 35 year mum according to my BMI results I need to loose 8st 1lb. I have tried every diet under the sun but have realised that there is no quick fix it is going to take time and hard work to lose this. I know the basics that food is there to fuel my body not my emotions and that a banana is a better choice than a packet of crisps or bar of chocolate however that is all easier said than done. I am hoping that by following the 12 week plan I will be able to make put those basics into practise. I have also never used a forum before so also hoping that by posting my progress this will also help me. My first bit of advice I am looking for is regarding exercise. I went for a walk yesterday it was only 30 minutes but its a start I suppose but afterwards my ankles and shin muscles totally killed as the day went on it was sore to walk and this morning it is agony. I know that carrying an extra 8 stone wont be helping but I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and has any tips. I dont want this pain to demotivate me.
Thanks for listening.
