I'm a night owl I'm afraid! So here I am lying awake as usual worrying about my weight. Is there anyone out there doing the same? I'm thinking of starting a BIG diet next Monday. That is - a very low calorie diet - 800 cals per day. I did do this before and managed to stick to it. I lost 3 stone, but over the years some of it has crept back on . The thing is, can I really stick to it a secon time around?
It's also different now as I work from home, meaning I am dangerously near the kitchen all day, whereas I used to be out at work. I also have to cook for my husband who is poorly at the moment, having chemotherapy. So I need to keep producing interesting healthy meals - which is hard to do when you can't eat them!
But, I want to do this for lots of reasons. I've just has spinal surgery for spinal stenosis, and I need to keep my weight under control to help my back. Both my parents died of cancer, and I know obesity is a risk factor for many cancers. My daughter has a learning disability and I need to be a good role model for her and help her manage her weight. Plus, I'm 58 and on HRT. I want to keep my weight down to stay healthy now I'm through the menopause but taking hormones.
I'm not very keen on exercise but I am active. I walk a lot and use a static exercise bike. But I need to ramp this up. I'm thinking of trying some pilates.
Anyhow, if anyone wants to join in the conversation and tell me about your weight loss plans and worries, please feel free. Its very important to keep focused and motivated. I'll sign back in in a day or two and see if anyone has replied! I hope so!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Bye for now!
