Hi All

Postby 40+GST » Mon Sep 29, 2008 11:33 am

I am in my early 40's and I've decided to make my weight public, in the hope that it'll give me the kick up the a** that I need. My weight has slowly been creeping up to the 100kg mark. Earlier this year I weighed about 10kg's less. Then I went on holidays to Tassie. According to my doctor I need to loose almost 50kg to be in the normal range. That's a little daunting and I've never really liked the word "normal". Probably why I put on 10kg's. :lol:

I have adult children who still live at home and they both work in hospitality. When they cook, I hover like a fly, to see what nasties they're putting in. They also bring home and cook dinner late at night, which is very tempting.

Last year my husband had a double bypass, he was 44, which was very scary but we've moved on. I'm trying to encourage him to eat properly and to do more exercise. He's currently taken up cycling, which he's enjoying. My daughter is also overweight. I worry that she will end up going down the same street but no matter what I say it doesn't seem to make any difference. I know, I must be saying it all wrong. Lecturing too much, maybe. :( I know I need to lead by example. A lot of the time it's she who is throwing me the temptations. :evil:

I have 2 Siberian Husky dogs, Layla & Marnie that I walk for at least a 1/2 hour everyday, often on my own. I'm at home all day doing Mum things. I live near the beach, which is also very confronting. All those super trim, good looking bodies, everywhere. :x I'm aiming to join them. I also have a Wii fit which I exercise on but it doesn't seem to have done much for my weight. I've put together a food diary in excel, so I'm working hard on that, trying to sort out where I'm going wrong. Portion control maybe?

Well that about sums it up. I'm going to go now and blow the dust of the hand weights.

Wishing you all a positive day.

Leanne

Hi Leanne,
I also have around 50 kgs to lose and when I think about it like that, it does seem daunting. I am trying to take one day at a time. (I know that is a bit of a footy cliche, but it works for me).
I look forward to sharing my progress with you, and hopefully we will be swapping success stories in the future.
Good Luck!

Thanks for all your good wishes and support.

Like you ClareG, I will be taking it one day at a time (thanks) and I'm sure they're will be good days as well as bad. Today could be one of them. :roll:

I wish you the best of luck, and Welcome to the forums.

I wouldnt push your daughter, she will realise on her own. The more you push her the more she will tell you to bugger off. This is coming from a daughter who was bugged by mummy dearest (whom I LOVE), I realised I was in trouble when I couldnt do up my shoelaces properly and started putting in a huge effort ever since (and of course have yoyo'd up and down for 2 years). It may be hard to watch but you cant make someone see what they dont want to see. * I hope I put this in a nice way*

My mum would agree wholeheartedly :).
