It's been a while but I have been writing my book and have decided that I do need support after all. I have started running regularly with my friend who's been great but it's good to check in with people going through similar things. So for those of you who don't know me. I started my journey in January with roughly 6 1/2 stone to loose. I haven't lost much of it yet (1 stone in total) but have been writing a book documenting the struggles and processes we go through as overweight ladies. I have written an amazing 27,000 words which I never thought would happen and it has been eye opening to say the least. So having learnt some important lessons and established some regular exercise and a good attitude I am ready to take the food part more seriously. I have always maintained that we should be able to eat normally if only we can get good habits around food and accept that weight loss will only work long term through just that so I am not concerned with loosing it fast.
It will be good to talk to others who are trying to develop good long lasting habits too as starting is the hardest part. My main problem is binging in the evenings and firstly I have replaced it with a healthier habit of binging on better foods! Then hopefully I will slowly reduce it to not binging at all! Hard isn't it.
I saw a video of myself the other day which really did shock me back into taking this seriously! I was 3 times bigger than I remembered!
Well hope to get to know some of you on here. I may be here a while!
