Wow today is the day I have been hit in the face with a sledge hammer. At 17 stone almost I knew I wasn't small but I thought I carried it well. Until I decided to do before pictures in underwear! I've just cried for the last hour , I look 9 months pregnant and how can I not have seen this , I'm disgusted with myself and what I have done. I know I need to use this as motivation and I've kept photos on my phone but omg what a shock.
Firstly... Don't panic! We have all been there, it's much easier not to see what's in front of us than face it and have to deal with it!
I'm in pretty much the same boat but trying to be positive- this is the last time I will be this size!
I started SlimmingWorld yesterday (for what feels like the millionth time!!!) but I'm determined it's sticking this time!
Hopefully it helps to know you aren't alone!
Thanks Lou, It makes a big difference to talk to people in the same boat. Defo on this today can't do this anymore. Tenerife in 9 weeks or so so a mini goal to aim for. Just wish if realised this sooner :(
Hi Jaxmummy, we have definitely all been there. I used to convince myself I was only a bit overweight (lie!) for a long time. It feels good to do something about it and take control. I also have holiday plans in early August and am now wishing I had started sooner. However, it is a long-term goal and at least we are doing something about it now. I am doing SW online, so I use this forum as my support group and log in most days.
Dont worry to much as by next month ur weight will be movin in the right direction and there will be no looking bak!
I take my photos every 4 weeks to see my progress :) and trust me only me and my husband have seen my before pics lol! I looked half way through pregnancy... not the best.
Facing it is really really hard, but stick to the plan and in 6 months you'll be looking at those photos seeing just how far you've come. 9 weeks can make a massive difference, if you give the plan your full committment you could have nearly 2 stone off but keep in mind that it isn't a race, set long term goals :) A holiday is just a holiday! You've had a shock and it's ok to let yourself feel upset today, but then move on and focus on the positive changes you're making and not on feeling negative about yourself.
Best of luck!
Thank you for all your kind words. I'm defo on this now. I'm hosting a BBQ Friday night and normally I will think sod it but not this time. I'm even going to measure my vodka !
BBQ will be perfect as you can eat plenty of meat and salad! I'm just trying to get back into the swing of things, I wish I was a bigger fan of veg it would make it so much easier ha ha!
