I have decided to start losing weight on 1st Aug - psychologically a new month, a new "academic year" (according to my brand new spunky diary!) and the day I go on holiday (probably not a good idea but after a long weekend break last week and eating loads of junk, I wanna ensure that this time I am keeping an eye on things and recording them!)
Well I know I have posted on here before via the c25k forum in which I am proud to say that I have graduated.
Unfortunately just a week later I had tremendous back pain and ended up going to hospital. I have been diagnosed with a prolapsed disc, and I am unable to run for some time now. Really gutted as it meant pulling out of the 5k race for life. I am meant to train for a half marathon in Oct, but have not started training yet. To make matters worse, my hip injury that I gained through a car accident 3 yrs ago has surfaced, and now I am limping.
I have recently been diagnosed with IBS and whilst the first few weeks were great and changing the way I eat, my weight loss attempts are futile. I am just annoyed with how things are going (or not going!) with my attempts...
Hence the decision to leave all that and start again afresh... The spanking new funky diary will help I believe.... I have 6 stone to lose at least, which will bring me back to a weight of 12 stone, will I be able to continue and get back to 10 stone and lose a total of 8 stone... Now that is the question...
My husband is stick thin (lucky him) and whilst he supports my attempts at losing weight he doesn't want to lose weight, how can I make this work especially with cooking dinner for the family with two young children...
Also my husband has now started saying he has heard my talks about losing weight before... I now need to walk the walk!
I am gonna post on here just for the benefit of writing things down and getting my attempts read by other people - I would love encouragement, motivation and inspiration, if you can help, that would be excellent! If not, then I will still post even if no one reads or replies to me, cos I know by posting at least weekly, I will make this into a habit for my own benefit.
So here goes:
Starting weight 18 stone 5lbs
First goal weight 12 stone
Total to lose 6 stone 5 lbs
Thank you for reading.
Bless u all
