I just want to be healthy and fit - will I be successful
I am totally new to this forum and this is the first time I am writing a diary to hopefully put my thoughts down as well as (fingers crossed) motivate me to lose weight.
I have always been overweight since I was a young kid. And I am fed up now, I know I am not as active as I should be and as a result I get tired quicker and hence then am not as active as I should be again! Kind of stuck in a vicious circle. I have three young kids and I want to be more active with them and not be scared of going out with them incase I won't be able to do the activities they want to do.
In the past, I have managed to lose weight but then I got married and slowly but surely it all creeped back on.
Today I have done two things towards helping me lose weight.
1. I have ordered a fitbit one (don't like the flex as I don't want to advertise I am a fatty trying to lose weight)
2. Have dug out my old slimming world books so that I can try and get back into the EE plan.
My downfalls are the evenings, I sit and then think ooo let me get a snack - but its rarely a healthy snack *sigh*
I know my weight problems are my responsibilty but for some reason I lack the motivation to do anything about it. And as a result I am letting my family down, but more then anything I am letting myself down. Why am I struggling when I should be so motivated? Life would be so much easier for me. :confused:
Anyway hopefully this is the start of something new. I may start posting just for the sake of posting in my diary to avoid snacking.:rolleyes:
