I have been around here a number of times and now I'm back.... attempt number 922 (or at least that's how it feels)
So, a bit about me...
My name is Annette... but you can call me Nettie, I'm 29 and live near Manchester.
I live with my wonderful OH Ste who is self employed and my 2 gorgeous children- Tyler aged 10 and Holly aged 7
I work for a Children's Charity- The Children's Society- and manage 2 Sure Start Children's Centres
I'm here again because I am stuck in my usual fat rut and know that this is the best place to come for support and motivation- I am rubbish at sticking to this new life style malarkey but have had a little bit of a wake up call as my big brother had a stroke 2 weeks ago at the age of 39 and my dad has been diagnosed with COPD (not that I smoke but its hit me about being generally healthy)
My OH is feeling uncomfortable with his weight so we will be doing this together.
So time for the embarrassment... my current weight is 17st 8lbs. I am disgusted with myself and I really need to do it this time. I can't continue my life like this. I feel sick when I look in the mirror, I hate meeting new people and I feel embarrassed when I go out with friends and I constantly feel that my OH must be so ashamed of me. I get myself into a comfort eating state and it's time I take note of my head in realising that food is not the answer.
Tomorrow is the start.... Attempt number 922 is on
I look forward to chatting to you all x
