New and Desperate from Canberra

Postby ausbobby » Fri Jan 18, 2008 6:01 pm

Hi everyone,

I am 27 years old male and have been overweight all my life that i can remember. The highest weight i have been ever is 100KG.

I am about to get married in April and am desperate to loose weight.

I have been trying to loose weight since my engagement in November but have only managed to loose 3kg (in 7 weeks).

Enough is enough.

I am 1.74m and currently weight 90.5kg with a BMI of 29.6 meaning i was in the category of OBESE :shock: at the start of my progress.

My biggest problem is controlling my eating. I sit and eat and know i am killing myself but cant stop.

I hope to loose at least 5kg by Valentines day as a start.

There is a few of us heading for weddings as the target date!
Me being one of them. CONGRATULATIONS by the way :D

For me what is helping me stick to it and be really strict this time is:

Practically everyone at the wedding is going to be taking photos of me and my "Husband". These pictures will probably be shown to even more people and published on the net.
I want to look back at my wedding albumn in 10 years and think of a great day not remember how uncomfortable I felt with myself and how fat I thought I looked.
I want to show my albumn to the kids and not be ashamed of what I see.

Everytime I go to eat something bad this is what I think about and my god does it help! I've done 5kg since Christmas and I am so pleased. Here comes the Sexy bride :D

you will find great friends and excellent support on this forum. I have not been a member for long, but I haven't given up in the first week and that is new for me!

I have found planning all my food a few nights ahead really helps. I am on weight watchers, and planning out what Im going to eat for the next day is quiet theraputic. This way, Im not so tempted to eat something I haven't added to my diary as my points are all used up.

I want to say good luck, but luck has nothing to do with it so "JUST DO IT!"
