Hi everyone out there
Finally took a deep breath and stood on the scales to face the horrid reality and through blinking back the tears i managed to read that somehow (ok with the help of a lot of wine, cheese and chocolate) the numbers 14 stones 5lbs that were flashing back at me. I am 44 years of age, have been overweight all my life, have a very glam thin mother but my father's potato on sticks body - seriously am all tum! Luckily I have a brilliant dog who doesn't care that I am a size 18 and obese according to that horrible BMI thing plus a wonderful partner (currently at a kick boxing class he teaches - yup indeed).
So I just typed into Google sustainable weight loss programmes and this came up and I really liked the idea of a slow burn and actually addressing my poor eating habits properly instead of going down the juicing route or the cutting carbs or the no sugar pain.
On the plus side i love exercise and run a couple of 5kms a week plus go to the gym but on the downside I absolutely love my food (queen of carbs) and I have no self discipline or will power and with a really stressful job that I combat with emotional eating, I worry that I am going to give up before I event start properly! BUT I am really interested in how the forum works and how people have found it supports them and look forward to being on a positive journey, one day at a time, one pound at a time. My aim is to try and get under 12 stones before the year has ended and will be weighing myself every two weeks.
Thank you for reading this!
