First day of the rest of my life....

Postby Slimming_Trish » Mon Apr 06, 2009 1:26 pm

*waves*

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.

So hiii :)

Thanks so much for your warm welcome Shalimar.
I think I am feeling brave, just need to upload the pics. Last time I did this I bawled and bawled about my photos. This time I guess my attitude has changed as all I'm focused on is making the changes necessary so that I don't look like this again.

Thanks again :)
Trish

hiya trish i too am 28.. with kids i have one of each Cam is 8 and Leah is 4.. .. I too let myself go to look after the kids.. but had a very ruff time with Leah she was sick basically form birth to 3.. and i didnt care about me in those 3 years i went from maybe 105 kilos to 135.. kilos... lol .. But once i got my daughter sorted out health wise i was able to start getting myself sorted out too ... all her illnesses have been allergy/asthma related.. and becuase of that the helathy eating is a breeze since she cant eat processed foods.. she reacts to colours flavours and preservatives .. so almost everything in this house is good healthy food.. the only down fall being there is nothing in chocolate ,... ugggh lol..

anyway . since that i have gone from 135 down to 112.. ( where i have been stuck since november last year.. but i have a feeling that may change this week.. lol )

so yeah i know whats its like to be forgotten .. lol.. welcome and good luck with your journey
