Hello! After a long time, I've decided it's about time I tried to lose some weight.
I've just turned 24, and at 5'3, I am classed as very obese. In the past three years, I've put on so much weight - I was in an horrible relationship and ate a lot as a form of comfort; and even though I'm really happy now, I still eat too much.
I had a really horrible bout of reactive arthritis last year that left me bed bound for three months and I've not regained my strength, so I'm still so weak.
I'm hoping a combination of healthier eating and going to the gym a few times a week will help!
I had bulimia as a teenager, and whenever I've tried to lose weight in the past, it's reared its ugly head again, so i'm hoping that this time, I can keep all the bad thoughts away!
I'd love some advice or friendly encouragement if anyone can help!
One big thing I struggle with is sweet snacks - I don't eat much during the day but I LOVE sweet food and snack loads during the evening, even if I'm not hungry! Has anyone got any tips?
