At 18 years old I was 8 stone 8lbs and 5 ft 5. At 29 years old I was 15 stone 4lbs. 31 years old 10 stone 4lbs and now at 39 years old back to 15 stone 7 lbs. Weight watchers worked in the past but I cant get into it now. Slimming world-I found just confusing, and in desperation a few months ago I did the Cambridge diet for 2 weeks- I hated the meals and felt constantly deprived and depressed. Now i've found this site! Doesn't cost anything, sensible eating (slower pace than id like - after all I would like to lose 5 stone next week please!) but sensible. I love the 12 week plan which I have downloaded, and I have committed myself to doing 30 minutes of exercise 5 mornings a week, couch to 5k 3 evenings a week and the odd 2 minute spurts of high activity during the day- (I work from home, sat at computer!). I've also brought myself a portion plate and confess I have also brought some Alli to boost my initial weight loss. I cant feel like this anymore. I hate photos of myself, I feel sluggish and unattractive wearing this fat suit. My kids are 8 and 10 and I want to be fit and healthy and watch them grow up and earn healthy behaviours. I'm 40 in February and I want to be forty and fit, not forty and fat!. Good luck to you all and I look forward to being part of this community. Take care xx
