Hi I am new here.
I have been feeling ,fat, frumpy and fed up with how easy it is to put on so much weight and not having the gumption to stop it piling on for some time now. I have used every sorry excuse in the book as a reason not to go do the exercise and why it is ok to eat chocolate, cake, sweets etc etc or even just that extra helping. Berating oneself for past actions achieves nothing I know, however not keeping oneself in check is not being kind to oneself either and has only resulted in an ever increasing waistline and my present predicament.
I have no idea how much I currently weigh, I don't need the scales to tell me. Being out of breath at the tiniest amount of exercise , my 24 dress size and reflection in the mirror clearly show I am obese and unfit. So right here right now in my first post I am making some promises to myself.
1) I will do some physical exercise every day even when I am not in the mood to do so
2) I will control the amount and type of food that I eat to give me the best chance to lose weight and stay healthy.
3) I will stop using excuses to hinder my progress particularly those that in the past have triggered "emotional eating"
4) I will drop a dress size every 2 months with the aim of being a size 14 or below within 12 months
I know that there are many others on here that have similar goals /motivations and look forward to chatting to you along the way
