This might seem unrelated at first to lipotrim and losing weight...but for me its all tied in. I tend to avoid the hard stuff...I have avoided losing weight for a long time, now I can no longer avoid it as its effecting my health as well as my confidence. I used to like going out with friends, dancing, playing sports, but being overweight makes me shy and scared. When I go out and meet my OH's friends and family, even though they have all been lovely, I feel that all they can see is my body. I find it hard to grasp why my super-healthy OH loves me (low self-esteem) and anytime I'm out with friends in pubs and clubs I DON'T get up to dance as I feel everyone will look at me and say "Look at the chubby girl making a fool of herself" isn't that just awful? I have two sisters who are a lot more overweight than I am, but it doesn't seem to effect their confidence, they don't seem to care what anyone else thinks. So its not just for health reasons I'm doing this, its for confidence. I have two essays to finish for college this weekend, I've spent the whole weekend indoors, phone switched off writing and researching away...that may not seem related to losing weight...but to me its another step on my journey of self improvement. I want to be a "doer" I want to be someone who takes action when its needed. I don't want to be someone who says "I'll do it later" and then leaves it until its too late. I also smoke, I've been a smoker on and off the past 15 years...this is also something I want to tackle...it might seem to some like I'm taking on too much...but I've GOT to change my lifestyle patterns NOW. Anyway, sorry for the rant, I just wanted to get all that off my chest and wondered if anyone else here like me struggles to take action when its needed and prefers to "Do it later"
