hey girls and guys.
just wondering would anyone like to buddy up? I'm 20st 12lb want to get to around 14 then re-evaluate :). would love someone to chat to along the way. I have a hubby who's great but its good to have someone in the same position to talk to. I have a few female friends but because I'm shy I couldn't bring up the subject. :o
your more than welcome to chat to me but all the girls will support you we are all in the same boot and they give you loads of help you found the right place to come welcome x x x
Hi there Lou,
Welcome and good luck! As Chezz said, I'm sure plenty of people here will help you out with support, kicks up the bum etc :)
What plan are you on/going to do?
All the best,
Thanks for the support. going to try and calorie count for a while. Ive tried everything. so back to something that I know works and isn't too strict in the "you can't eat that" sense. have myfitnesspal set up. just need to get going on it.
thanks everyone for lending an ear. I find it very helpful to get my feelings out there without being judged. Going thru a bad patch at the moment. doubting myself and being v.paranoid in public about what people think of me and my size. vicious circle of binge eating resumes then!

Hello Louise! Welcome! You did right to come here. Here you really can find great support and help! Don't be shy to ask me for support any time! would be very glad to make friends with you and chat often;-)) Good luck!!
Hi lovely, well done for taking a big first step. I'm like you, I'm heading for 13st 7lb as a goal to start with as I'm not sure what I look like at that size (I haven't been sub 22stone for a LONG time, at least 8 years!) and as I'm relatively tall I don't want to get TOO slim as I think I'd look daft.
We're always here to help and as we're in the same situation we know how it feels :) x
i know what you mean about being paranoid i lost some of my weight was going well then i lost my job and a death comfort ate put it all back on and now i want to kick myself but im back on it so im happy had a good week x x
so how is everyone today? I'm feeling a but better. at least I'm facing the problem now instead of running (who am I kidding...slow walking) from it.
my problem is sometimes that i'm a big thinker. think and worry too much over things alot. the thing running thru my head today was that I've wasted my life. 31 this year. 17yrs unhappy and fat.
Lou, I could have written that. I overthink everything and worry all the time,
I'm 32 and also regret all the wasted years.., but no more, right!
thanks lottie. I'm wide awake here thinking about things again. and I've to be up for work at 5.30 :eek:
I can't keep making it worse. every time I try and fail another stone goes on. so im 21st now. I've failed alot. I've so much to lose now it's scary. months and months to knuckle down now and I've never lasted more than 3 weeks :(
Don't be so hard on yourself try to accept the past I am 29 21st 6lb & been dieting from 8years old. Until 3 weeks ago I was struggling big time even the doctor telling mr my blood pressure was so high I was / still am at high risk of a stroke wasn't enough for me to start losing weight . What I focused on was accepting that in the past I just didn't try hard enough no excuses I wanted to lose weight but I didn't want to put in the work. I didn't want it enough I was happy comfortable. But then I turned into a paranoid wreck convinced people were staring at me , when I got on a bus people wouldn't sit next to me no matter how bus the bus was I used to think it was a good thing then I realised there not sitting next to me coz I almost take up both seats . Sick of only being able to shop for clothes in 2 shops 1 of which can be out my price range & the other there plus size section is always at the back of the store so I feel like I'm doing a walk of shame . But the main thing I've started to realise is I deserve so much better than this. You can do this try writing down your reasons why you want to lose weight was very helpful to me x
Going to have a sit down later today and think about all the reasons. then post them up here to come back to. I hate sounding like a big pity merchant. I'm not normally like this. Just having the odd dark day lately.
I know how hard it is so don't be sorry at all when I wrote the reasons why I'm doing this it was the 1st time I was ever totally honest with myself don't get let the reasons get you down.
It's not easy if you can find that bit of determination inside you feed it let it grow do things to make yourself proud. One is the things i don't to make myself proud was simple things like stopping eating when in full ordering something healthy when out for a meal. Rewarding my achievements with things rather than food. I don't really drink so my social life mainly consists of eating so rather than treating myself to dinner lunch etc I have started putting £5 on a gift card & I'll keep adding to it . Are you sticking to a eating plan? X
kers pink i think that is a brill idea
Thanks chezz I it works for me £5 isn't a lot when I would spend £10-£15 on takeaways or lunches etc at least 2/3 times a week x
