So I have finally decided to address the elephant in the room (sadly to true to be funny) my weight. I have always been what kind people would refer to as curvy, the not so kind well less said the better. Last year my husband left to start a new life with another woman, and instead of being distraught and losing my appetite I turned to food. I guess it's only in books where you can't eat lose loads of weight and look amazing when you next meet!!! So a year later and I have finally accepted what has happened, moved on with my life, and got my act together! The last piece is now addressing my weight issue. I work crazy shifts with no regular patten, so I have decided to join weight watchers online, I have read through so many peoples journeys on here, been inspired and gained confidence in my ability to do this. My start weight is a shocking 23st 11.5lbs! Scales where banned from my house until this week! So even though I knew it was going to be a lot of weight to lose I was still stunned. I have a 16 year old son who is extremely supportive and I am 39 years old, I know this is not going to be a quick fix, but excited at the prospect of weight less when I hit 40!! I have no goals other than weight loss. I feel putting my diary online will give me a level of accountability.
