Hi all, newbie here.
Although I put a question of where all my extra weight from, I do I fact know exactly where it came from....
It happened gradually (over 9 years)
Swapping the gym for watching a movie with snacks.
Swapping cycling everywhere to using the car.
Changing sit ups/push ups in the morning for an extra 15 mins in bed.
Extra hours at work instead of chilling out with friends.
Moving house and not putting full length mirrors in.
I recently caught myself getting out of breath climbing the stairs but that wasn't enough to make me notice I was now a different person.
Laying in bed, my wife put her hands on my stomach and called it my food baby.
The next day I looked in a mirror and didn't recognise the person looking back at me.
I stood on the scales.... a extra stone a year since we met. That's on me and the choices I've made.
I'm in my thirties and eating myself into an unenviable state. That's on me.
Now it's on me to change.
Simple equation right? Calories in versus calories out.
The battle is on!
Here for some back up support for those movements of weakness. And perhaps some way down the line I can be of some motivation to others too.
