Journey to the new me.

Postby buzybee » Fri Aug 07, 2009 11:15 pm

After years of struggling with my weight, I am now taking control of my life. Suffering from joint pain, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, lack of motivation and direction at the age of 34, I am going to turn my life around and do what I should have done a very long time ago.
I have not always been overweight (obese), I use to be extremely active, running 5k’s 3 to 4 times a week, hiking, gym 5 – 6 times a week and taking care of myself. 7 years ago I injured my self at work and have yo yo’d ever since I have put on 50 kgs in the last 4 years and have hit rock bottom. On July the 30th 2009 I could not stand the sight of myself another day longer and am going to do something about it. No more excuses, no more regrets, I have a long journey ahead of me but time to change what I have created.

Hi Buzybee! Sorry to hear about your work injury. Are you pain free now? Injuries can definitely impact on your weight.

Welcome to the forum and good luck with your weight loss journey. I look forward to seeing you around!

cheers,
Ali

I’m still here and determined, to me this is not just loosing weight, I also need to adjust myself and my life style, I need to change the way I think and how I present myself. I am a mother of two teenagers, I need to be a role model to them, I know they Love me but I want them to be proud, not ashamed and most importantly I want them to know how to maintain a balanced life which I am working on. In the past 2 weeks I’ve changed the way I think and slowly the way I live, I see the positive difference this has made in my professional life and most importantly in my family. The person I was a fortnight ago is gone, what I want for my children I am doing for myself, I am practicing what I preach, I want the best for my family and I will make the best of me too.
Okay time to look back on the week.
Things to proud of:
Only drank water no sugar drinks
Kept a positive attitude
Got 8 hours sleep each night
Achieved weight loss :D

Things to work on:
Make sure to drink 8 glasses water
Organize meals day before
Need to do at least 30mins exercise each day
Make a to do list each day
MUST have breakfast

I'm early this week - but there will be no weigh in, Last 3 days a bit of wasted time and feeling like S*>#T have not gone to school can't even be bothered leaving the house. My exercise consists of a massive fit over the state of my house, I have mopped the floor 4 times today washed the bed linen, washed dried folded and put away all the clothes. Revamped the pantry and disinfected the bathrooms. Over all I still feel like crap. I know the reason but can’t change the outcome. Family do this weekend, with all those disapproving eyes and judgmental comments, I know it’s coming. 6 years ago I lost so much weight, I’ve always gone up and down. The funny thing is that I have always been athletic full of energy and want to challenge Mt Everest but put me in a room of relatives and I crumble. I don’t know why I bother. I’ve cried a river full of tears but I’m going to make sure there is no weight gain, there will be no junk, greasy, sweet, calorie loaded meals for me, I won’t eat anything to sabotage my weight loss, I may look and feel like crap but there is no way I’m going eat myself into a binge over this. I will weigh in next week…when I'm not sounding and feeling like a belong in a mental Institue. I need to think of some happy thoughts :roll:

okay back on track, a few up's and hell of a lot down's, but where there is will there is away. I am off I will loose this weight, I put it on and I will take it off. I have been noting but good for the past week and it shows on the scale's.

need to remeber there is no turing to the fatty foods that put me here in the first place.

by the way I done the "you are what you eat 2 day detox" nothing but vegetable juice for 2 days but I'm off and running, I am jogging. :P
