The mountain won't be climbed by sitting at the bottom!
Ashamed, scared, in pain, out of control, uncomfortable, reclusive.... This is how my weight makes me feel and there is only myself that can change that. And oh how I want to change my weight!
Seems a very easy thing to write but instead of thinking it, I NEED TO DO IT!
In the past I've tried WW with very little success- my weight meant i had so many points to eat I found it overwhelming! Sounds like a dream, I know, but after a busy day at work I'd often find I still had 15 points left at 9pm when all I wanted was to sleep.
The thought of meal replacement shakes is enough to make me run to the nearest sweet shop so that is a certain no go for me.
I've tried Atkins years but the side effects were too severe for me.
I've had some success with SW in the past and enjoyed the plan so I'm going to try again. The difference this time is that I'm not joining group. The reason? I work shifts and sometimes can't make group fora few weeks at a time and often could only get weighed and not stay as had to get to work. I found when i could stay I benefited from the support but looking at this forum I think I'll get good support here, and that is 24/7.
So today is the day my journey starts. I weighed myself this morning and cried tears of anger and shame. I look forward to getting on the scales in the future and crying tears of joy and pride.
I am 18st 13lbs. I never want to read those numbers on the scales again. I have been heavier in the past and I have been far lighter. I know which I prefer, so here goes that first step up the mountain....
