So after a plea for help on here last week, followed by some wonderful advice from some lovely helpful people I thought I would take some more of the advice given and start my own diary.
i went back to group last Tuesday and have my first weigh in tomorrow. I have really struggled with my weight the last few years and have piled on more and more weight after having 3 children very close together and then using food as an emotional crutch when stressed, tired, upset, anxious etc. I found that I was always thinking I'll start tomorrow but tomorrow's diet never actually happened. After a lot of changes over the last few moths I am finally in a place to tackle my weight and focus on me. Since starting group last week and buying a countdown I feel committed in a way I haven't in a long time. With the exception of today I have been focused on the plan and actually enjoying it. Today was a bit of a blip but instead of using that as an excuse for a full on binge I accepted that I could have eaten better and stayed positive. I may not get a huge weight loss tomorrow but to be honest any weight loss is a step in the right direction, I have over 7 stone to lose and need a whole new way of eating and looking/ thinking about good.
thanks for reading and I'm looking forward to sharing my journey! X x
