Ok- so many many people all say- "Today is the day!" In fact, I reckon nearly every person who has lost a bit of weight has started 10 times over before finally sticking to any sort of regime!
But today I am serious- so I am going to run with it! I weighed in on Monday at 17st 13, around 250 lbs. Being 6"3, this gave me a BMI of around 32. Obviously this calsses me as obese, although I don't feel it has quite gone that far as yet. But I realise I do need to lose around 40 lbs to be a healthy weight for my age and height.
I have tried many diets, and being only 18 I put my health at risk by investing in Lipo-6, a supposed miracle cure to being overweight. It made me irritable and some nights I got NO sleep whatsoever.
I was standing in London on 28th June 2008, the day I had it in mind to have lost about 30lbs for at the start of the year! And I hadn't! I had gained 10 lbs since January 1st. The problem I had was at the start of 2008, I thought how long it would take me to lose the weight I needed to lose- how 6 months seemed like an impossible task.
Then in London in June, I suddenly realised how quickly those months had been and gone, and if I had just stayed motivated for that short period of time, how much better I would have felt about myself.
This time, its the same! Im struggling after three days because I see 6 months as such a long time! I have joined this site in the hope for motivation for those who have succeeded, and those who are giving it a darn good try!
I have a first mini goal of being 15lbs down by the end of August!
