I wont be fat and 40!

I wont be fat and 40!

How did I get back here???? I am 38 years old, and once again the scales are tipping at closer to 300lbs than 200lbs. Currently 260. This time last year I had lost nearly 60 pounds and was down to 201. Why, why did I gain it all back.

I am a life time dieter. Last time I lost weight by viewing this as a lifestyle change, not a diet. I will take this approach again.

The biggest help last time was online support from those who were going through the same thing. So anyone want a buddy?

For those starting this week, good luck. See you next Thursday for weigh in #1!

PS, the attached picture was taken on New Years Eve and I believe it speaks for itself. Is it possible to have that many chins???

Hi knhedges,

I am 35, and my weight is currently nearly the same as yours. I too do not want to be fat and forty. Fighting through it and changing things for good. It will take some time, but let's not give up!


Hi knhedges

Going through the same thing as you - so I can really relate. I consider myself to be fairly successful in life, and yet I feel so defeated by my weight and food.

Good luck



Hi Knhedges,

I have just read your blog and know exactly where your comming from. I also said I wont be fat and forty But at 53 Im starting again at 21st. You go for it my dear!!! I wish you all the best. Be strong.


Hi knhedges, I turned the big 'four oh' in January and I am determined this is going to my year for getting my weight sorted. I have yo-yoed in the past, but no more.... plus I have a satin dress I am determined to get into without looking like I am wearing a bin-liner! Keep going girl!
