Hi everyone. As I said, I'm in serious, serious need of motivation.
I've been overweight for as long as I can remember. Four years ago, I decided enough is enough and managed to lose about 35kg in the following 2 years, may I add I still had another 25 to go. I then quit smoking, I'd decided to start running and these to habits did not quite go together. But that is pretty much where everything started to fall apart. I've been yo-yo-ing, picking up and losing the same 5kg's, but I could pretty much maintain my weight with running. Sadly, due to an injury toward the end of last year, after pushing myself too hard, doing to half marathons within 4 weeks, I've not done much running the last 6 months. Frankly I've not had the motivation.
So that, coupled with some personal issues, has left me quite depressed and being the emotional eater that I am, I now weigh 10kg's more than what I did this time last year. Which leaves me with a daunting 35kg's to lose.
I am petrified of ending up where I started 4 years ago, I promised myself I will never go back there again. But I just can not muster up the will to actually do something about it.
So I'm hoping that, by joining this forum I'll get a swift kick up the butt and if I'm held accountable it would keep me on the straight and narrow.
