Can't believe It!!

Postby natty » Mon Sep 08, 2008 3:20 pm

Hi Everyone

Let me tell you my dilemma.
This morning I was getting ready for work. I did a huge wash last night and had nothing to wear. I searched low and high and spied an old dress in the back of the closet. It was one of my favourites that had disappeared out of sight (possibly due to my addiction to shopping). I always liked this dress because it was light and flowy, and I just felt really good in it. Well I put it on this morning and it wouldnt go on! I can't believe I've put on so much weight without realising. Shocked as I was I thought I better step on the dreaded scales to see how much damage I have done. 71 kilo's! I have put on 10 kilo's! I nearly fell over.

I suppose I have known I've been putting on weight but just pretended to not realise. I am in a lovely relationship and I'm beginning to worry maybe he has noticed as well. So I have decided to do something about this! I am going to change my whole attitude toward food and exercise. I want to fit in to my clothes again!
This forum looks great. So much motivation and inspiration from looking at all your jouneys!
My journey begins NOW

Hi Nat and welcome!

With winter slowly passing and summer coming up, I don't think you'll be alone in trying to put clothes on that don't fit!!

What's your plan of attack?

Best of luck :P

I was going to lower my carb intake. Perhaps only before 12pm.
I also used to run so I really want to get back into that again. I just saw everyone running city to surf so I've set a goal to also run it next year.

Does anyone have any tips/ideas for me? I really need some!

Calorie King website is fantastic for measuring calories. You can also programme it to work out your carb and fat intake for the day so you don't over do it.....

Good luck
