Fat Bloke checking in for duty

I think and hope Im a WeMITT - just joined last night and have read so much that makes you feel humble but also give you real inspiration.

As a 27stone bloke, with 4 kids, house husband, my wife works away during the week, I have piled on the weight and always found an excuse. However my health has been getting worse, ulcerated legs, poor circulation, respiration, just generally falling too bit lol

I have tried and failed but now is the time i need to turn my life around. I need to see my kids grow up, I dont need to be beaten at football by my 4 yr old son cos im too big to catch him, lol

I started last week with a visit to dietician and started Gym on Thursday. so far so good although i havent weighed myself I have been a good boy and stuck to the healthy eating, based around the WW plan.

Reading all the stories in here makes you realise that there are people who are worse off and still do it and gives you inspiration. First weigh in is tomorrow so fingers crossed. My first aim is at 23st - so I can play wii fit with the kids....after that we shall just see where I go, what the goals are.

Nice to read a good friendly and supportive community and look forward to more interaction as i hopefully push forward into a new me. :)

Welcome and best of luck on your journey. You'll find lots of advice and support on here and WW is a good diet choice, especially as you can fit it into family meals also.

My first tip for you is at least 3 ltrs of water or more a day!

Keep posting and I look forward to reading your journey.

Well done for taking that first step! When you see the numbers going down on the scales every week, it's great and keeps you motivated. My energy levels are increasing now I've lost a bit, I feel healthier and don't get out of breath so easily. I also don't feel such a failure now that I'm finally doing something about my weight.
thank you for the kind words, and sound advice. Its niceto have a community too fall back on who understands some of the things that you are going thru.
Hi mungo D and all the best for your weight loss journey. this site is brilliant and there are alot of inspirational people on here it really helps me when Im having a bad moment.

Hey Mungo,
Like everyone else, i wish you well on your diet, and this site is great, if not only for support, but for swapping recipes. Maybe keeping a weekly blog might help as well, would be interesting down the line to read it back, and see how far you have come xx
