Hi to anyone who wants to read my diary and join me on my journey,
I've decided to take control and use this space to note the foods that I eat and the weight that I lose.....Hopefully!
My name is Emma,
I am 34,
I have a two year old son called Charlie and I've been with my other half Mark for 7 years.
I've always been a big girl, since childhood, I was always the podgy one out of me and my twin sister! I grew up in a farming family, so stodgy meals and large portions were a must!
Last year (summer) I got a new job, at an occupational health meeting I was weighed and because my BMI put me in the morbidly obese category, she referred me to my GP. It's probably the best thing that could have happened, it really made me see that I needed to do something serious about losing weight. My GP then referred me to the healthy lifestyles group in my town. I went along to my first meeting and weighed in at 22st 1lb. I went along to the groups and met with the group leader 1:1 every 2-3 weeks. I managed to lose 2st 10lbs by eating sensibly and cutting down on portion sizes. However this program only lasted 6 months and I've been trying to do it on my own since March, not always fully committed though I put back on some of the weight lost and weigh in today at 19st 11lbs.
I'm going to weigh in on a Friday morning and would really appreciate and help and support that you can give me.
Thank you for reading,
