I'm new here. I would like to lose at least 40kg as I'm currently clinically obese. I was shocked into confronting my weight a couple of months ago when I finally allowed myself to climb on a scale at the hospital.
It finally dawned on me that I couldn't continue the way I was and needed to make changes in order to lose the excess weight. So for the last 6 weeks, I ditched my car and have been going to work on the train - this involves walking anything between 1 - 2 miles everyday.
I also ditched my normal lunch and started making my own salad and taking it with me to work everyday for lunch. I stopped constantly munching on biscuits and pastry. Finally, after joining this forum 2 weeks ago, I joined the gym last week.
I am however concerned that I have only lost 2 kg in the last 6 weeks. I also seem to have suddenly developed an intolerance to chocolate and milk. Every time I eat any chocolate, I start being sick immediately. For example, I ate a KitKat finger today and within 2 mins, I was seriously sick and lost my whole lunch.
This is making me a bit worried now. Been sick after chocolates and milk coupled with not been able to lose weight - has anyone else experienced this please? Does it have anything to do with being older (I'm 43 now) as I used to be able to lose weight so easily before and never had problems with chocolates and milk. Do I need to go see my GP? Please help.
