Loopeylou's SW journey to a healthier me
Hi everyone, I'm not new to minimims - like many here I have tried everything but during the last 12 months veered into a territory of VLCD's and since then have gained it all back then tried several "other" diets in an effort to lose the weight.
I know for me I have to have food in my life - real food. Going onto meal replacements did achieve fantastic results and I actually thought I'd realised how little I need food but I was so wrong. I went on holiday and consumed a food mountain and struggled with it since then (last June!). I'm still 2 stone lighter than my heaviest weight and don't want to be saying it's all gone back on.
I have put myself on so many guilt trips etc and after a very emotional eating xmas as not been well I have decided enough is enough :(
We still have naughty food in house and are decorating this weekend so had decided to give SW my full attention from next Wednesday but I woke up this morning feeling sluggish and horrible that I am going to join class tonight after work. I've changed jobs recently so can go back to a class I went to 3 years ago where I helped my son achieve his target weight following the teen plan......I did lose weight with him but didn't see myself as a priority then if that makes sense. He's now 16 and still feeling and looking great so its my time to do it for me.
I've been poorly on and off now for 3 months, wanting to say oh low immunity etc but after blood tests coming back clear I can only assume my very bad diet isn't helping me.
So tonight is the start of my new journey. It's going to be a long and bumpy road but I need to face the reality that I have to change my habits for the rest of my life. I always start so well, loose loads then pile it all back on :sigh:
I hope to be able to find some fellow friends to help me along my way
