Well, I started sw 12 weeks ago this Wednesay have lost 16lbs so far. Having done ww before lost 2 1/2 stone and basically put it all back again just became obsessed with all the snack stuff I could have if an apple and a bag of crisps have the same points- well um I'm not this big for no reason! I think my fat has become this protective layer if i'm upset, happy bored etc i turn to food Ive used it almost to medicate myself if you like. I have found that I've previously suffered from anxiety and rather than deal with it I used food to blot it out I feel like I'[ve dealt with a lot of issues- still some to go but I feel much happier and able to cope if that makes sense to anyone. I think in part with ww and other attempts is I haven't felt worth the effort. I would confess to not being perfect at sw but I had a moment at class last week when I realised how much more I could have lost and also that it is important to me. I enjoy cooking and I find sw works for me. I have started to walk around 4 miles 3 times a week and I've started using the wii fit but need to get into more regular routine. I cant imagine my bmi being 25 or under getting it below 30 would be something I have been seriously overweight for the majority of my life I feel as though I have let it rule my life.
