Here I am

Postby wizz » Sat Oct 11, 2008 12:28 pm

Well here I am. I am feeling rather disgusted in myself, but thought I would call on the help and support of the lovely ladies and gents here.
I am currently 85.3 kg's and only 158 cm tall. I am 34 yo. The reason I feel disgusted is the fact that I got down to 65 kgs. One child and 4 years later here I am again. I enjoyed life so much more back in my slimmer days. I also suffer from PCOS and am currently taking Diabex/Metformin.
I have taken on a healthy eating plan lately and have been exercising every day. I had been watching the weight slowwwwly creep down on the scales but then I decided to buy some new digital scales and when I stood on them they told me my weight was higher than when I started (on the old scales) :cry: That sent me into a bit of depression last night .
Thanks for reading.

Hiya and Welcome. I know what you mean about new scales. I had that problem a while back too. Its good that you know how much you CAN weigh if you want to so try not to let it all get you down. You cant let weight consume you and your life.

Hi Wizz,

I know exactly how you feel, I'd been taking Metformin for the last 4 months as well, but I haven't seen any changes.
Today I started what I called my "well-being challenge" with some changes to my diet, attitude and exercise regimen. So today is Day 1, it will be great that we can encourage each other through out this journey what do you think?!! we can exchange tips, ideas, feelings and I am sure that all the forum members will also support us.
Talk to you soon!
