Hi, I'm Trish. This morning I made the decision that things HAVE to change for me. I'm 28, I am married and have 4 young children aged 7, 6, 4 and 3.
I currently weigh 106.8kg's and for my height have been informed that about 75kg's is a healthy weight for me. I would be happy to make it into the 80's. I was also a skinny kid, but I thought I was fat. I look back at photos and wonder how I could possibly think that as I was such a stick. I put on weight in my teens and lost it and put it on and then got married and had my kids. Since then I have really struggled with my weight. I like food. I have a pretty hectic life so find it hard to want to get out and be active on top of everything that needs to be done for my family but there are no more excuses for me now. I have to do this or I will be hiding forever whenever someone pulls out a camera and I will never go out and enjoy myself cause I am always so sad about how I look. I'm done being sad!!!!!
Today I am starting again. I have weighed myself, measured everything, taken my before photos and am journelling my foods and activity. I thought I'd pop online and see if I could find a group of people who are going through similar issues and I found this forum.
