So a bit about me:
I am 33 years old. I work full time and have no children and I weigh 16stone 9lbs.
About 8 yrs ago I weighed 17stone 13lbs and went on to lose 2 stone. I stayed at 16stone for a good while maybe 2 yrs or so then went on to lose another 2 stone. So at 14stone I was the lightest ive ever been in my adult life. Then one day I just decided I was sick to death of dieting and stopped. Then the weight all went back on and then some. Last year I was 18stone 5lbs. I then went on to lose 2 and a half stone and weighed 15stone 10lbs this was only about a month ago I weighed this. But then imagine my horror this morning when I weighed myself and discovered I was 16stone 9lbs.
Apart from my struggle with my weight I clearly love my food and just love sweet stuff but I tend to binge eat chocolate biscuits etc etc. I like, believe it or not, running when I can be bothered. I love reading and always have my head in a book. Just now its 12yrs a slave. I also love documentaries.
So why am I here:
* I can see the old signs. I know my weight is creeping back up again and I really dont want to be 18stone again. When I was 18stone the first time I went on holiday and the seatbelt did not fit. I had to get a special one they give to pregnant people....I swore that day I would never let my weight embarrass me again
* I am bridesmaid at my sisters wedding next july. I would love to lose 2.5stone by January when we go shopping for dresses
* I want to try for my first child next year..after above said wedding. I think its important to use this time to get a healthy body and try and get into good habits
* I wanted to find something/somewhere where I can write my thoughts/feelings and share them with people who experience them too or have done so in the past. I think I can learn a lot from others here and hopefully contribute something to help others also.
So thats all about me. I have pretty big goals to achieve so now I'm away for a run....cant wait to meet u all
