In Need of support
Hi guys im new to this but i really feel like i need to go on this journey with people who are trying to accomplish the same goals as me. i am in my mid thirties and i really want to lose weight, my weight has fluctuated from my early teens and it never really bothered me until recently. i have broken up with my partner of 8 years and my confidence has hit an all time low i weigh 21 stone and i got caught in the trap of well i have her i dont care if anyone else doesnt fancy me, only to be told she doesnt fancy anymore. i feel like unless i lose weight i will never ever find anyone else and that im destitute to a life of loneliness. i always start of well and lose 1 or 2 stone but then i fall of and i put more on than what i started with i know i need to sort my head out but i believe my weight is crucial to my confidence being so low. i want to lose weight so i an stick 2 fingers up at those who feel i am overweight and lazy. i feel weak writing on here and sharing my emotions with strangers but maybe this is what i need, im grateful for any advice anyone can offer me.

I was never really bothered by my weight when I was your age and roughly the same weight either but I'm 47 now and about 50lbs heavier with some weight related health problems . So I decided that now is the time for me. There are lots of reasons to lose weight but you are the one who has to want the change for yourself or all the motivation in the world won't help until you make that decision to live healthy and enjoy life . YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!! And I will follow you.
I started my weight loss journey 4 weeks ago and have lost 26lbs so far . I was 350lbs when I started ( 25 stone) hoping to lose 130lbs. All I'm doing is eating healthy and about 2000 calories a day . Trying to get some exercise in 3-4 times a week. Walking mainly.... 21kms last week. At first it was hard to get motivated to walk but its much easier now.
You can do this and there is lots of support here for ya ...so keep posting and hopefully we can get you to the place that you want be in your life.
