    Hello all you lovely people :D

    I hope I'm posting this in the right place :) So to start, a little bit of info -

    At Christmas last year, I was 20 years old...and verging on 20 stone! So, after lots of deliberating (and many years experience of every diet under the sun!) I decided 2010 was going to be my FINAL WEIGHT LOSS YEAR! Why? Because... this Christmas I will be 21 :D and that's meant to be a special age, right? So, I would quite like to be slim for it!

    So January 2010, I started the year at 275lbs. In February, I had a gastric band fitted and for me it has been the best choice I've ever made - until now. Which is where this little post comes in.

    I have got lazy :( and stupid. I am now.. 224lbs!! Yay, I am obviously super pleased with 51lbs loss but I just feel that had I tried harder like I did at the start, it would be quite a bit more. I still have 70lbs to go :'(

    Things I am failing to do -

    1) Eat 3 healthy meals a day! - I've been eating one crappy one if that :(
    2) Take my medication properly!
    3) Go to the gym and swimming - I was going everyday.. now I'm lucky if I go once a week!!

    So today is my "I Mean It This Time" day! I'm going to start keeping a food diary, exercise diary and just... try harder :) So here goes!

    If any of you amazing people can see anywhere I could improve on what I am doing.. or just any general help.. I would be stoked :D

    GYM TODAY!!

    I pay for it, and don't go! How daft huh? I was thinking of cancelling it till I was less busy but, knowing me, I would never rejoin :p So by keeping it going I'm hoping it will guilt me into going back! It's only the first day I find hard - after that, days 2, 3, 4 etc are easy because I've got the energy and motivation back!

    My problem is, I never really know what to do :S so here's my typical gym time -

    30mins - Bike - about 10km
    3 sets of 15 reps on the following -
    - inner/outter thigh thing
    - biceps/bingowing thing
    - core abdominals/sit up thing
    - chest
    20mins - bike/row - about 7km

    Swim - 30 to 60 lengths depending on how far into a routine I am. (the more I go, the more I can do :))

    I can't use the treadmill because of leg problems and don't really know what else to add or change to this ^^^ any suggestions?

    You can do it, I spent most my 20's overweight.... I turn 29 in December and I really missed out on a lot of stuff... I did do a lot as well but I have to admit looking back I missed out on things because I felt uncomfortable with my weight, dont let it be the same for you hun :) Life is way too short.

    I don't think there's much I have really not done due to weight, but I've gotta admit... of all the things I DID do...The feeling of "I'm huge, people are staring, this is uncomfortable" has definitely overridden any feelings of enjoyment. I always remember the embarrassment first, fun later =/

    This last month and a bit, I just don't know what's been going on with me. I've not lost any weight AT ALL, I've eaten crap...all the time!... And gym? Forget it. I don't understand why this has happened, I've lost motivation I guess.. I'm now a size 16ish... and as such, I can now finally buy clothes pretty much anywhere, so maybe my fat-head thinks that's enough. I can dress like a 'normal' person, so why do I need to WEIGH like a 'normal' person - when I can semi-fake it?

    Obviously, I KNOW that's wrong... and my heart and slim-head want to be 'healthy' and ideally a size 10/12 (mostly because I want to own just ONE item of clothing from TopShop!) I guess fat-head is lazy, and...has been here far longer than slim-head so is taking more effort to evict from my brain space than I anticipated.

    I did however...go to the gym yesterday! This achievement is huge atm, as I haven't been for almost 3 months :D the first day is always the hardest, continuing to go is what I find easier :) so next gym day is Friday!!
