Helllooooo to any of the struggling people of weight loss like me!!
This is my first time in a forum and first post! Wooo!
I recently discovered that my BMI has creped up to 30. I used to be a size 12 with a healthy BMI and a year of being unemployed a few years ago has caused me to expand to a size 16 with a BMI of 30!! I am 90kg and need to lose 23kg to be in the middle of the healthy weight range. Aaaah!
Very easy to put on, not so easy to get rid of! Fed up of the family comments 'ooo thats a big one' 'You talking about Laura?' ha ....ha ..... :/ Having my belly being patted 'whats this?'(patting belly). Thanx Nan. 'Maybe you should go on a diet'.
Time to do something about it me thinks. Its motivation that I need. I struggle to stop myself snacking in the evening as I think I'm probably a bit of an emotional eater. If I am bored or fed up, food is always yummy and comforting. I have almost no motivation to go to the gym even though I am a member. I'm worried about being the newbie at exercise classes.
Im going to post the picture of me at a wedding recently which made me think, hmmmm bit chunky. I was also standing next to my beautiful size 8 friend which maybe made it worse!
I am only 26 and should be at the time in my life I feel confident and sexy. I want this to be the case!!
Any motivational 'get up of your arse and do it' comments would be much appreciated
