I really don't know where to begin this intro, so I guess I'll start here .... My name's Helen, Im 29 and married, no children.
I've been overweight all my life. My earliest memory of being weighed was for a science exercise in year 5 where I weighed 68kgs, I'll never forget the sniggers and teasing that I endured. I made a promise to myself that I would lose weight from that day, I broke that promise over and over again.
I have tried everything.... WW, Jenny Craig, Gloria Marshalls, Atkins and what have you...to no avail. I finally built the courage to go to my first appointment at an endocrinology / obesity clinic at a local hospital and have finally gotten the support and attention from medical professionals.
I sit here writing to you at 5'8" and 205.6kgs. I have a BMI of 70 and 56.9% body fat percentage. I am "ready" to lose this weight.
I no longer want to be the "freak" that people look at and laugh at. I have dreams of travelling, having children and most importantly just being healthy.
Ive anticipated that my journey will take close to 2.5 years as I have to lose 135kg's, I have set myself a goal weight of 70kgs. With little mini goals along the way. Slow and steady will win the race.
So here I am, looking for support, idea's and just wanting to chat to people that are in the same position as I am. It's always far more comforting knowing that I'm not alone !
*Hugs* to all
