Hello my name is helen and im not sure if I should be joining this forum yet as mentally I dont think i'm committed to my weight loss. I guess me typing this is my way of reaching out and i hope someone out there has a magic wand but back to reality I know I am the only one who can do this.
I am new to this forum and very excited about what im reading I only hope I can get my head into the right frame of mind to do as well as so many of you.
i am 5"11 and weigh approx 96kg, i would love to loose 20kg, heck even 10 would be a bonus. I am active walking and swimming. My main problem is Portions.....thanks to living in the islands for 7 years and being told to eat eat eat.
Im so angry with myself that i let myself go, i hate looking at myself and will avoid any family pics. My hubby is great and is also trying to loose weight but like me all we do is talk about it. Motivation is the key to my success but so far I have none.
I have even started smoking again after 4 years. My main goal is to give both smoking and the weight the flick together.
I hope after spending time reading all your successfull stories and struggles that I become a success in this forum just like you all.
