Hi there folks,
I have just signed up to the NHS 12 week weight loss support and thought it was time I braved writing my first post. I think I have been in denial about my weight gains but recently when I saw a horrendous photo of myself I decided enough was enough. 5 weeks ago I weighed myself in at 15st 3lbs and felt really tired and rubbish about myself. I am 5ft 7" and have managed to put on 5 stone in 5 years through stress and comfort eating my way through a number of traumas. I also got out of the habit of exercising which made matters worse. Having at last got started I have managed to lose 13lbs in 5 weeks through walking, healthy eating and cutting out a lot of bread and potatoes but I have to keep it going. That will be difficult so I thought that joining this forum and and sharing experiences with others trying to do the same may provide some support. I feel so much better just for losing that but I know that I have a long way to go. Biggest difficulty is trying to be sensible when I go out for a meal. I have been very good so far but this evening I am out with friends and we are going to a local italian restaurant and having looked at the
menu, my will power will be seriously stretched :/ Does anyone have any suggestions?
