Hi everyone, well today is my birthday (42) and ive had the most miserable day. My husband raced out this morning to come back with a bunch of half dead flowers from the Caltex petrol station and i noticed the wrapper 'happy mothers day' so that really topped it off! I have totally ignored him today and have spent alot of time on my own today, which has been good in a way because it has made me realise that I need to do something about my weight (yet again!) Im sick of it, hate my 'fat clothes' and I am going to start on Monday. I have a program from a personal trainer I had once and I know it works as I lost abit of weight and really had alot of energy. I need to go up the shops tomorrow and buy the food and get ready for my big challenge. I am too scared to jump on the scales :shock: last time i was about 120kgs. I hope to make some friends along the way, really need some at the moment.

Hi Julie, welcome back!
I think coming back to finish the job of losing weight is a wonderful birthday gift to yourself.
I know each year my family would also forget it was my birthday. If I didn't buy my own card and own present (even wrap it) and give it to them to giveback to me, they would totally forget too.
I'd also have to buy my own birthday cake because for 3 years in a row they had forgotten and their excuse was them saying we didn't bother getting you one because you're always on a diet :cry:
MEN! :roll: The worse birthday was when I turned 50 (last July 1st) and they all flew off to Darwin leaving me behind to celebrate alone whilst they all went for a 2 week holiday to attend my neices wedding (they hardly knew her and we could hardly afford the airfares for them all) I couldn't leave the house because of my allergies to tobacco smoke smells.

Dolly - You absolutely made my day! Your a gem :D Thank you to everyone who replied, it really made me feel a whole lot better , i hope to keep in contact with you guys. Jumped on the scales this morning - it was a shocka - 121.9kg! Ive never ever been this overweight in my life. I would like to be 80kgs by May next year. I think that's realistic. Im going to do my own thing, i know what's right & wrong, I'm sick of wasting my $ on weight loss progams and get bored after 2-3 months. I will let you know each week how im progressing. Thanks again everyone - im ready to start my long road to success! Bye for now Julie x
