First time posting here, I've started trying to lose weight properly since last Thursday after several years of denying I was THAT bad. Took a rather rude comment from a stranger on the street to admit I needed to actually do something. Not a pleasant experience!
I'm doing the couch to 5k challenge at the moment and after doing only 2 of the days I can really tell just how absurdly out of shape I was when I started! Actually came as a bit of a nasty surprise to be honest.
I am glad to find a community that seems positive and supportive through the process though as I've been having a bit of a miserable time with my family at the moment. Despite knowing I am now on a strict diet they have been a bit of a nightmare! If I didn't know better I'd say they were trying to sabotage me (they are a little bit on the heavier side themselves too). Just in the last 2 days I have been offered a large bowl of profiteroles with cream, half a large pork pie and been given a full fat milk latte with extra sugar. I have resisted all of them so far but I really have no idea why they are doing this. Its not making me feel very supported!
Anyway this isn't a sob story, it has been less than a week but I couldnt resist a weigh in the other day anyway and I've already lost about 4lbs. Quite happy with that, although my goal is to lose 3 stone so I have a long way to go.
Do you folks do anything in the community you would recommend I start joining to stay motivated? Good progress so far but I am worried I will end up losing steam!
