I'm back!

Postby Frangipani7 » Wed May 13, 2009 3:14 pm

Hi everyone,

I joined around this time last year in preparation for my wedding in March (09). I managed to fit into my dress and looked good in the photos but since then, the honeymoon is definitely over!

I've been piling on the weight again and I went and saw my doctor yesterday and my BMI is 29!! For my height I'm supposed to be under 70kgs, and right now I'm 80.6kgs. I knew that I was overweight but he said that I was "grossly overweight" which hurt a bit and I got REALLY angry but I think that was the kick in the pants that I needed.

Plus DH and I have been having some problems so i've been turning to comfort food (KFC, Maccas, chocolate - you name it!) which hasn't helped.

So, I'm back on the bandwagon again. I bought a box of Optifast shakes (first day today - am about to drink my lunch :lol: ) and am starting Lite 'n' Easy again next week. Plus I'm also joining Fernwood again next week so I'm hoping I can lose the weight I need too.

I'm pretty over people saying "your just big boned" or "your not overweight"... yeah right. No need to sugar coat it people, I can look in the mirror! :)

So, i'm looking forward to being back in this great community and getting some support and offering some at the same time.
