Hello everyone I am entering my 2nd week on the site and I must say I feel I have had more support here in 2 weeks then I ever had in a slimming class. Wonderful!!
So a little bit about me...
I'm 34 with about 85 lbs to loose. I have a little 3.5yr old and I am on a mission to get some weight off and have a healthier lifestyle before we try for another baby.
Somedays I go for quick easy unhealthy options, especially when I'm tired and time is running away. I'm planning more and have a fridge stocked of healthy options.
My little one eats really well, I have no excuse.
My weight steadily crept on in 2014. My Dad had a heart attack 2 weeks before I had my daughter. After loosing Mum 4 years previous and family living over in the US. I was there to pick up the pieces. We spent the next 6 months travelling 90 miles with a baby in tow to the hospital he had been transfered to. Takeaways crept up as we just needed anything to function. My little one and Dad was priority and I pushed myseld further down the line.
Dads heart transplant came through 4 weeks before I was due to get married. Dad came out of hospital 7 days before the wedding and walked me down the ailse.
It worked out perfectly!
The following 2 years my eating habits got worse...and fast brisk walks turned into slow dragging feet toddler walks. Hahaha
So.... I'm here... ready than ever... my world is centered around family and I wpuldnt change that but now I need a slight readdress to the balance and look after my health.
My calories are 1670 a day and so far I'm coming in at that or 100 under.
Congrats, if you are still reading....
Lookforward to chatting more soon.
