I'm bex, 31, mom to twin boys who will be 5 next month, and this is hopefully the last introduction I'll do on this site.
I've done every diet. I've been dieting for 8 years. I lost all my weight on Cambridge but regained. Have switched half heatedly on and off sw since then.
So I'm back, but this time I'm giving weight watchers a go. I normally avoid ww, the idea of counting everything stresses me out. I'm starting to accept that this is probably because I'm scared of it on some subconscious level. I've decided to do ww firstly because I need the portion control in some way. Secondly because it allows for me to stick to plan on the days I've not been prepared, such as forgotten a packed lunch etc.
I'm walking at the moment, not massively but we've had a dog who I walk for at least half hour every day. I've also ordered the Vicky Pattison DVD. It's had good reviews but I like the fact it's only 10 minutes, hoping I'll be able to fit this in.
So I have about 5.5-6 stone to lose. When I lost my weight on Cambridge I got to 10.7 and tbh I think now looking back I was happy with this, so that's my long term goal. Short term, I'm going to Disney world in May with the kids and hub. I would like to have lost more than 2 stone for this, I think that's doable.
I've not weighed in properly yet, I'm not starting till 6th when kids are back, tho I am tracking bits to get used to the app. I'm an online member rather than groups. I can't decide about weighing yet, I don't really want to weigh at home in the morning as I get obsessive and don't sleep properly etc, so am thinking about weighing somewhere else. Maybe I could see about the local chemist or doctors at some point this week.
I'll also be giving up Pepsi max.... God help me lol
So there I am. I need and want to crack this properly and for good this year. I need to for my kids. I need to for me, I had high blood pressure at last docs appt and have been told to monitor for a week before going back in April. My dad had a heart attack when he was 34, I'm 31 so not far behind and don't want to go the same way..
Would love for anyone to buddy up and help keep each other focused xxx
