Right here I am. 196 lbs :sigh: 9 lbs lost in a month doing golower ( low carb) but I need a change to keep me motivated and keep loosing. I also want to eat normal healthy meals with my husband and more fruit and veg than I have done in the last month. Apples cant be bad can they?? Oh how i've missed apples! Have joined a gym- Curves- which I promise to go to three times weekly for the 30 min curcuit and I also promise to keep up my walking- currently 20+ miles a week. I will also keep drinking at least 2lts of water daily as I really think this helps. I have been to SW and WW in past and don't want to join either again at present. I will eat normal health food in moderation and not snack in between meals on rubbish. I don't mind if its slow As long as its coming off There is nothing to stop me doing this but myself, and I am a strong person and will get in control of my overeating. I want a good relationship with food for the future. I accept that I will want treats and will have some days and weeks that are better than others. However this will not make me give up on my goals or loose heart. I am going to try and copy my thin friends and familys way of eating- stop when full- leave food on plates- don't eat for boredom and emotional gratification. By Christmas I no longer want to be obese. I will do it. Please feel free to say hello and support me in my trials My WI day is sunday, which I will stick to and try not to weigh in between.
