I have been worried about getting back into dieting as I was way too obsessive in the past and spent many years constantly obsessing about my weight and got to quite an unhealthy point mentally.
However, it's 5 years now (and probably over 12 years since I have weighed myself) and I feel ready to try again from a very positive position and to keep it healthy mentally this time, not negative. Being kind and nice to yourself is so important!!! And what you eat is part of that, but also appreciating your body, not hating it.
However, I can't continue putting on weight, this summer I wore long sleeves and trousers on the beach, I feel horrible and sluggish when I eat too much and I know how good I can feel just by sticking to eating well and exercising, also I am now 42 and need to look after myself.
I needed extra motivation and this site seems great for that. I have also started using Noom to track my meals etc.
I am 5'3" .. going to weigh myself tomorrow and very scared, last time I weighed myself was around 2000 and I was 8 stone, I think I have put on at least 2.5 stone, I will let you know tomorrow!!!
Thank you xxx
