ive been overweight ever since i had my son 10 years ago. depression and family problems have all contributed and ive finally decided i need to do something about.
i am now in a great realtionship after getting the courage to leave my abusive husband last year, and my partner loves big women so hes made me feel good enough about myself, to do something about my weight!
i started last monday and have lost 5 lb. at least i think i have, my scales are temperamental. its very annoying! also this week its been Time Of Month (TOM) so i think my weight isnt accurate and im hoping that when i weigh on friday after TOM has gone, i will notice more of a loss. im desperate to see a loss result to make me feel better about the diet. ive been hungry and irritable and emotional, and i dont wanna have gone through all that for nothing!!
i know myself that 29 stone is horrifying!! its an acheivement for me to even tell anyone that!! i told my doctor over the phone, and he said "hmmm, your weight is critical, you need to come and see me" so i am going next tues and hes going to put me on Orlistat, but i know stocks of it are limited so i may not get my prescrition right away so im glad im over a week into the slimfast diet.
the dr will weigh me on tuesday so as thats a week away, im actually looking forward to weighing then and seeing more of a loss. also, to see if his scales say the same as mine!
i think hes going to weigh me once a month, and even if i cant get my orlistat, im going to weigh in with him regularly to keep a track of it!
im aiming for 12 stone but i realise this is a LOOOOOOONG way off, and am just going from day to day, week to week. i hope i can lose 6 stone by christmas, then i will at least be fitter and able to do some exercise without nearly passing out!
is anyone else looking to lose such a significant amount? or has anyone started at a similar weight and have a success story and before and after pics they could share to inspire me?
thanks for reading!! xx
