I'm 32, married to lovely hubby and have a gorgeous 1 year old boy to run around after. I went on my first diet at 16 when I lost about a stone succesfully and since then have yo-yo'd between size 12 to 18 although I havent been in a size 12 for 8 years! I'm blooming well sick of being overweight and having had loads of stress over the years I have used these times as opportunities to make excuses to not do something about my weight. I have hopefully reached the point of no return and I am currently feeling so determined to tackle my weight issues. I have been stuck in limbo for the last couple of years beating myself up and trying to figure out where every diet has gone wrong, why they don't work for me and this has given me a real apathy towards seriously tackling my weight problem which has led to more half hearted attempts - you know the cycle Im sure. Recently I have been so fed up with myself, constantly avoiding photo oppotunities, rearranging my muffintops back into my jeans 50 million times a day and doing stupid things like asking the hairdresser to give me a cut that makes me slim that I have had enough! Only today and the future matters, I am going to try and forget about my 'failures', it was just never the right time before.
So.... I stated Exante 5 days ago and have stuck to it 100% managing to succesfully get through my neices b'day party and New Years Eve (normally a big blow out night). Im defo in ketosis as hubby has started kissing me strangely . I have written down 15 goals which I will share at some point but for now I just need to get through each day.
Anyway enough about me - I feel uncomfortably self indulgent posting this but having been a serial Minimims lurker for years its about time I put myself out there! Good luck to everyone starting their new eating regimes, I really hope we can all dig deep and get the courage, motivation and determination to achieve what we want this year.
