PeI've been struggling with my weight for most of my life. You've all met me, the fat one school. The one that's picked last for the team in P.E. The shy one because people were always laughing at her. Never being able to find clothes that fit or looking hideous in the ones that do.
I am now 27, married and with a 1.5 yr old little boy. My son showers me with unconditional love, cheers me up with a kiss when I feel down. It is partly for him that I need to change. I grew up with no sense of of healthy eating or exercise, I cannot let this happen to him. I want to take him swimming, for this activity to become a part of his week and so encourage a fitter him in the future, but in order for that to happen, I need to get in the pool with him.... I want to run around in the park with him and not be thinking about people staring and laughing at me.
i started S&S 2 weeks ago. Starting weight 105.6kg. At my first weigh in I came down almost 7 pounds to 102.4. Second week weigh in... 103.8. I have not been very disciplined. While I'm at work, I keep to my shakes, water and coffee. But when I get home in the evenings, a little voice that says "it's ok, eat" is all that fills my head.
Restart today. Simplicity all the way. I have a party to attend in 3 weeks, and that will be my mini target for now. Ultimately it is not just I want to physically slimmer, but want to be healthy and live a longer, confident and happy life.
