Dairy Of a Lardy kid aged 43 and 3 quarters...
My diary starts tomorrow (the 1st).
So here's me at the weight of 2 average-sized normal human beings with knees the size of dinner plates.
I'm doing SW at home. The reason is I'm quite shy and the last 2 attempts at doing SW via a group and staying for Image therapy or whatever it was called just left me feeling cold. I first tried SW back in 1991!! and it was just has amazing then!.
I've managed my weight quite well and always been quite active until about 3 years ago. I started with real heavy depressive episodes with disabling anxiety and insomnia that was enough to make you feel like you where losing your marbles. I've just started on my latest (and hopefully last) medication review and I'm currently on Mirtazepine and Amitryptiline. Both medications cause weight gain and sleepiness and lethargy....But I'm willing to face these side-effects full on if I can eventually get relief from these disabling conditions.
If I lose a pound a week brilliant!...not wanting major losses. I've got a long way to go so might has well take my time.
You might see me on here a lot because at the moment I don't go out or at least out on my own because of the social anxiety disorder - this might explain why I just don't succeed at going to class, apart from that I was sick of getting EE shoved down my throat!!.
I try and go for a walk once a day after the kids have finished school luckily they are both patient teenagers so don't mind walking me round the block lol. Hopefully I won't always need someone to hold my hand every time I leave the house - because these tablets are going to help me and my weight is going to start dropping off and I'll be strutting out the door alone by Springtime :).
Anyway Im Lisa this is me for those who want to follow my journey I have around 8 stones to lose but would be happy with 5 stones and I will mainly stick to green days. Was thinking about posting pictures of the meals I have to make it more interesting but because I'm a newbie don't know if I can do that yet.
Happy New Year and will see you tomorrow :) :) :)
