No more 'tomorrow' - it's today that counts!
Hi everyone, :wave_cry:
I've decided to take the plunge and start writing my weight loss diary - I've read other diaries and I think they are such a useful tool to start on track.
So a little bit about me:- My name is Helen, I'm 30 years old and married my childhood sweetheart in April 2013 - we have one Daughter together who has just turned seven :eek:! I have always struggled with my weight. I was 'normal' size until I was about 15 and then I just put on more and more weight. My heaviest weight was 17st 6lbs which at 5ft 7 put me in the highly obese category. I managed to lose three stone before my wedding last April, but since then I fell of the wagon in spectacular style and ended up back at 17st 3lb - which is where my new journey began.
I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2011 and this itself came as such a relief to me - I'd always found it really hard to lose weight but thought that I just wasn't trying hard enough. Whereas now I know there is a medical reason why I have to work that much harder to obtain my losses - which in itself makes them all the more rewarding.
My husband and I are TTC baby #2 - we have been for the last 6 years. We've recently been referred to a fertility hospital, but they will not start prescribing any further medication to help with the conception until my BMI is under 30. So that's the main focus for my weight loss - I'm not getting any younger and as the title to this diary states, I'm got to stop thinking "I'll start tomorrow" and made today count instead.
I'm currently on Week 3 of slimming world, I lost 5lb in my first week and 1.5lb in my second - meaning I'm just 0.5lb away from my first elusize 1/2 stone sticker.
Thank you in advance to anyone who is reading along - I will try to update this daily and will be grateful for any comments or support you can provide me.
