I am so fed up of starting diets, losing a couple of pounds and then quitting. Usually by the time i start again i have put the weight back on and more!
I have realised that the only thing holding me back from being 100% happy is my weight, it gets me down everyday. Every situation I am in, I compare myself to other people to the point where I put off going out with friends because I feel so fat next to them all. I just had a friends wedding and some people I hadn't seen since before uni and they didn't even recognise me. Enough is enough, if my happiness hinges on me losing weight I am going to do something about it!
I recently moved to a new area with my boyfriend after we both finished uni, at the moment we havent really met any new people. I feel like my weight is holding me back from going out and socialising more. I put off nights out with friends from home, because I am embarrassed by my weight.
I start work in september and am dreading having to go clothes shopping for work. I went to a few shops the other day and the only clothes i could find were size 22 older ladies clothes. All of the nice work clothes only go up to a size 20 which looks too tight on me. I have graduation at the end of September and I would like to be able to feel a bit more confident then.
I see everyone's success stories and I always think "I could never do that", well I have decided I will never know until I try. I have set my goal to lose 2 pounds a week eating 1500 calories.
