This time it has to be different, this time has to be the last time.... I wasted far too many years being overweight, which makes me full of excuses of why I can't do stuff yet.... When I am slimmer... I will treat myself to a new lovely summer/autumn/winter/spring wardrobe... When I am fitter.... I'll go back to dancing classes... I will do all these things... when I feel better about myself.... when I have lost a stone or two..... Hmmmmm
When did it all change? My teenage years and 20's were fine, then a bit of weight crept on in my 30's. So it's my 40's that I've lost control especially the last 5 yrs until that point I had always kept within my ideal weight range even if it was at the heaviest end. Before then I'd eat well 3 balanced meals a day and only treats at weekends not really thinking about food until meal times and I would keep busy and active walking, dancing and in my 30's I would do a gym session at least twice a week.
Bad habits have crept in, biscuits with drinks... crisps in my lunch box.... binge eating chocolate and savoury snacks. The more time I have on my hands the worse I am. Eating in front of the telly in the evening has become the norm.
So what to do ? Sort my lift out ! Kick myself up the backside and get on with it! Right.... just need to plan how....
