A new beginning

Postby New Beginnings » Wed Jan 30, 2008 10:51 pm

Hi all,

Ok, I finally plucked up the courage to post a message - you guys are inspirational! Ihave been checking out your posts and pics!

Today is the first day of my new beginning (hence my log in name), I have been overweight my whole life - times are a-changing!

With the support of my loving DH and hopefully with the support of my fellow weight loss friends I will (finally) succeed in my weight loss journey!

I have tried everything from WW, Jenny Craig, Lite n easy, meal replacements - and I am still back where I started - I have decided that it's time for a lifestyle change - no more will I be the "fat, funny girl" I have been that person for too long!

My ultimate goal is to loose weight so we can have kids - we've been married for 18 months now, DH has told me that he would like me to get healthier before we have kids - which is a fair call - I want to be a good influence on our kids when we (finally) have them! DH has promised to be with me every step of the way - even offering to learn how to cook so I can have a night off every now and then!

I am an emotional eater - always have been! If I'm sad - I eat, if I'm happy - I eat, If I am bored - I eat! It's a natural reaction!! :)

Anyway - I hope I can support and encourage you guys in your journey - and I hope you guys are ok with offering advice and encouragement when I am having one of "those day" - maybe you can even distract me from the fridge in one of my sad/happy/bored moments!!!
