Hello I am new, and hoping to shake off some fat!
I have lurked on the site for a long time now, and think its wonderful.
I have been in denial about my weight for quite a while now, after looking at old holiday pics that made me feel awful about my weight gain, I have decided I really need to do something about it.
I met my partner over 10 years ago when I had just lost 3 stone on weight watchers and was down to 10 stone, we both love our food, eating out, takeaways, cooking our lives seem to revolve around eating.
I had my son 7 years ago, and after having him weighed in at approx 14 stone, I managed to get down to 12 stone, then gradually my weight crept up, I swapped nights out for nights in, and lost interest in myself.
I had a miscarriage on 2011 which resulted in depression, and overeating. I weighed myself last Tuesday and was 15 stone 12lb, the heaviest I have ever been! I was shocked, I am quite a fun loving person and have never let on how much my weight bothers me. I feel unfit, and embarrassed that I have let myself go.
I want to lose weight for me, my son and my partner.
I have started doing slim fast and managed to lose 6lbs so far, I am managing pretty well, slim fast shake for breakfast and lunch,my snacks have been snack a jacks, special k bar and activia yougurt. For tea I am having mostly salads, pasta, jacket pots, tuna, grilled chicken.
Cider is my downfall! I love it but it has to go! I want to be able to wear pretty dresses in the summer. I have set myself small goals to start with like weekends we have planned etc, weddings. I just hope 2013 is going to be finally be my year to lose the fat!
Start Date 8th Jan 15 stone 12lbs
