I joined a fair while ago but disappeared when i got married and caught up in life. Earlier this year, my grandfather had a sudden heart attack and quadriple bypass surgery, and i gained about 5kgs from that because of no exercise, bad eating and stress. It wasn't the best of times, and my grandpa is a fit man who walks at least 2hrs a day, is in a healthy weight range, and eats well.
After he was hospitalised, i quit the gym because i wasnt going and my eating was pretty much just packets of chips because of their convenience. I only did this for 2 months, but during that time i started to get intense stomach pains. I thought it was my eating so i tried to eat better. It still continued, one time so badly i was hospitalised.
They never found out why, but amazingly it disappeared after i rejoined the gym! I'm too scared to quit now lol.
I got up to 69kgs in june, from about 63kg in march. My aim is to get to 55kg, but anything under 60kg is fine. I want to have kids sometime in the near future and i want to tackle my weight now while i can.
I feel pretty embarrassed when i look at people's bucketloads of weightloss here, and i cant even lose a measley 10kg!
The hardest thing is staying away from sweets and also making the effort to prepare meals, with work and uni. I really hope i have enough motivation and support to actually stick through and not just disappear again!
