Hello everyone, I need your support!!!

Postby xxx.blondie.xxx » Sun Jan 18, 2009 11:45 am

Hello everyone!!

I'm Sammy, 19, and not happy with herself!!

Around 2 years ago, I was healthy & happy, loving myself and life.

Then, I met a man, who we all thought was wonderful and perfect for me. To cut a very very long story short, he turned out to
be an abusive **** who abused me mentally/physically for a year and a half. He was overweight himself, and dragged me down that
line too. He had baked/fried foods morning, noon & night. I also had to eat these foods, as I wasn't able to provide anything else.
On top of that, I was unable to leave the house for work, socializing or exercise. Hence, I put on alot of weight!!!!

I was not a size 8, 10 or even 12 before I met him. I was a happy size 14. Now i'm a size 18, and I really don't like the way I've become.

I need help, and support - lots of it! I thought this site would get me on my way.

Starting on Monday, tomorrow, I'm going to start walking my dogs. But I don't think that would be enough.

So any pointers would be great!!

Also, I'm looking for a buddy to chat with on msn/sms to go through this weight loss journey. So if anyone else would like me
to chat with through their journey, I would love that!!!

Thanks guys

Firstly- are you still with this man? I really hope for your sake your not.
The best advice I can give is to start slowly, it is hard to change your entire life in just one day so each day make another small change, cut out the bad foods, introduce some new good foods, find an exercise you enjoy doing and before you know it you will be losing the extra weight and feeling confidant again.
Its not easy changing your life after being in an abusive relationship, I know how hard it is to find that confidance again but work on your mind as well as your body and you will do fine.
Start weight: 98kg April 2008
22/12/08- 80.7kg
29/12/08- 81.8kg
04/01/09- 81.6kg
12/01/09- 81kg
19/01/09- 80kg
09/02/09- 79.3kg
Next goal 75kg

Hi there, thanks for your reply!

No, I'm definitely NOT with this man anymore, he has been put where he deserves to be!! :)


Thankyou for the advice, I will slowly change small things to make my life better - they say if you change it all at once you don't stick to it :)
