Hi everyone... I need to make some changes,so hopefully I'm in the right place. My story?
For the last 2 years I have been stuck in a dead end boring inactive job and haven't been happy - working 10 hour shifts sat down all day across both lunch time and dinner time. So that I could eat at least 1 meal a day with my husband... I have been eating my dinner at 10pm most nights and then going to bed at 10.30 /11pm.
In this 2 year period I have gained approximately 5 stone and ballooned from a size 14 upto a size 22 and this is not good for my mood, my health or my outlook on life.
In May this year I got on a plane to go on holiday and I almost couldn't fasten my seat belt and it dug in whilst I wore it. I felt ashamed.
Earlier on today I saw a picture of me, from before I got married - 5 years ago when I was considered medically to be a healthy weight and BMI - happy in a size 10 - and felt amazing in myself. I miss this!
I have now been placed on steroids to help my lungs build strength with my asthma, I have been awake every night for around 3 weeks at 2am with horrendous heartburn - doctors don't want me to take excess acid tablets as it's my weight that is causing my acid reflux problems.
Enough is enough!
I am starting a new job on 1st August 2016 - working 9-5 in a hopefully more active role... it will hopefully stop me from gaining anymore weight (hopefully help me to lose) and give me time to focus on getting my life and focus on me and my health.
Any help or encouragement will be gratefully received and if there is a way I can help or respond to you - I will do my best.
Hi to everyone and thanks for listening
Here we go!
