I came across this site by accident after pondering c25k for some time.. I've attempted it before with my husband but didn't get very far and of course.. as per usual.. gave up and went back to the fridge..
I'm late 40's and come from a family with major weight issues across the generations.. of course that's only part of the issue.. the rest is the stuff I put in my body !
It's getting time (again) to address the flab.. I'm often feeling so tired that my arms are drained of all power and my head could literally fall on the desk @ work.. not sure if that is a sugar crash or just being overweight.. does anyone else get that?!
I'm a secret eater.. there I said it.. my friend often used to comment on the fact I ate well so never understood it.. I think my siblings are too.. I am expert in hiding the packaging.. I don;t binger / purge.. just occasional binge.. but not in the mass volumes you see on the TV. I can;t explain why / where it came from.. going up in the 70's we were never far from chips when the budget was tight..
Diet drinks are shipped to my home by the gallon - love them.. No.. 'm not afraid of water and will happily drink that too..
I can lose weight like there's no tomorrow when i am in the zone.. after that it can take me a month to shift half a pound.. I'm sure it is easier to move objects with my mind on those occasions
Would love to give this site a go - discreetly.. So many programmes out there say.. tell your friends / co-workers.. er no, this is a very private battle .. very british I guess
My lovely husband has never said a word on my size.. other than showing appreciation for when my weight has dropped but being frank.. i feel as attractive a beach ball..
I need to find some leisure clothes that don't make me look like a michelin man and get out there - just shame it's not winter and the village cannot see what it going on..
I'd really like to keep in touch with this site / forum discreetly.. is there an app I can access it from? It's not just my lifestyle i need to address.. it's my long history as a luddite too..
Any advice on either front would be very welcome ... looking forward to chatting with you
