I've joined here because over the last year my weight loss efforts have hit an utter wall and I'm almost back to my original starting weight I was 3 years ago. This is partly due to breaking a couple of good habits over the Christmas break and then my gran passing away in the July. I am however trying to her back into it but with no success atm.
I have been trying to reintroduce the good habits I had had before, like fruit instead of chocolate when I had sugar cravings etc , but it seems that I'm not having any luck at all.
I am reasonably active and tend to go to the gym/out cycling 2 to 3 times a week and try to go out walking in between times. The issue is that I know it's my diet that lets me down, because I have near enough no willpower when it comes to my food. Partly because I live at home and my parents don't help much with wanting pizza and going out for meals etc.
I am 21 years old and a student studying statistics. I'm hoping when I get back to uni in September it might help because I'll be in a routine again but the stress of my final year might not help much on the eating department unless I can get it sorted now...
I am currently, as of my weigh in this morning, 174.4 pounds. My aim at the moment is to get back to what I was not much over a year ago which was 153 pounds as it gets me into healthy bmi and I was comfortable but I'm hoping once there I might be able to lose a wee bit extra through toning.
I've been looking through the posts on here for a week or so and I'm so inspired to work harder and really focus on my diet. (Probably why I'm so annoyed my weigh ins keep showing added pounds when I've been working harder to lose it)
Not sure what else to say for people to get me know me as the wee box said! Haha so if anyone reads this and happens to have any questions just let me know
