well where to begin, the first thing to probably put down on paper is I am Michelle, I'm now 30 I have 2 beautiful children and i have been with my partner for 10 years and married 1.5 of them
Its time to stop kidding myself, even though I act as though it doesn't bother me and that I have this MASSIVE personality, my weight is a major problem. Since childhood food was an issue I was either binging or starving, then in my late teens I finally got " a figure to die for" and that's when I met my hubby. Children came 2 years later and my body has never been the same again, I am overweight, unfit, unhappy and ready to change.
At 30 things that I should find easy are really difficult and causing me pain, my once endless supply of confidence and energy have become an inconsistent dribble or non existent especially since I had to lose all my teeth this year too so I have had a tough year but I stopped smoking new years eve 2012 and I am determined this will be the making of the new me.
so day one (yesterday) was hard I was so hungry the whole day, I had a slim fast for breakfast but I was so hungry about 30 mins after and I couldn't get rid of that hunger. Now for a while now I have been craving fruit and veg but I have no teeth so its not as easy as you think for me to eat and you would think if anything I would have lost weight but all the foods hat are BAD for you are easy to eat and that's why I've piled on more weight as my diet is limited to bad food.
I did get through the day yesterday without cracking although I had a packet of crisps and a few tea biscuits but that was all and I have been so honest with my food diary, its fantastic I just scan t he bar code and save and it does the rest. when the kids go back to school next week I am going to do that 5k challenge a I need to excercise more that's a MUST!!
Today was day 2 and i had a great day I really enjoyed my cheese salad sarnie with extra side of veg it was difficult to swallow but I cut the veg as small as I could an I enjoyed it so much and my body had missed it so much too, So I'm sitting on the computer determined to keep a diary of all thoughts and feeling of my goal to lose 7 stone. I cant wait to read this when i am back to my former self and living an active healthy life! GOODLUCK EVERYONE WHO IS FIGHTING THE BATTLE I AM X
