I just found this site yesterday and after having a little nose around it looks like a really helpful and motivating place to be!!
I seriously need to improve my health! I am wording it that way rather than 'lose weight' as I really want my health and not my size to be my focus but I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to lose weight too!! I have around 6st to lose to be the middle top end of healthy.
I am a type 2 insulin dependant diabetic (although I'm not great at taking my medication, but I am forcing myself to take greater care with this). I have PCOS but would like to conceive after having a few miscarriages and I know that unless I change my habits then nothing will improve. The power is mine and I am ready to work towards making a difference.
Trying to be really honest with where I am as that probably the best way to manage the changes, but apologies for all the info!!
I have a desk based job and tend to comfort eat, but I also skip meals often and do not drink enough water. So I've been trying to improve that and take advice from the 12wk plan.
I started on Monday and have been going out of the house in the morning for a walk Monday, Wednesday and today, surprisingly I'm really enjoying it and have been doing at least 5k each time and walking for around an hour. Been trying to jog in 30 second bursts and hoping to increase this over time! I'm exhausted today, but in a good way!
I think I'm on the right track, but hoping to find some support and encouragement here!
