It's amazing how many people have the same yoyo'ing weight problem. I'm an expert on calories and nutrition, I know how to lose weight slowly and healthily. But I just cannot keep it off. I'm at the point now where I think, well what's the point of going to all of that effort to lose the 40 kilos when I'm just going to gain all of it and more back like I always do. '
But it's getting ridiculous. I'm 35 now and heading towards middle age and I can't afford to be at this weight any more. If I don't get this weight off I might just end up with a nasty bout of heart disease, diabetes, etc etc....
I am going to do this and I AM going to keep it off this time.
Third night out walking tonight. Again I'm so glad to have found this place because it's so hard doing it alone and without support. I've only been here for a day but I want to thank you guys in advance for being there. Todahy has been full on and it's now 12.02am and I need to go to bed. Tomorrow night I'll be back here to read a heap of the threads and see where I can help and offer support and encouragment to everyone else.
hi daisy, chook, missviva. its a pretty good place to be, lots of support and some of the kindest folk i have ever 'met'. oh the perils of emotional eating-i suffer also! put on 40kgs in 2yrs-have taken off 27 with 13 stubborn kgs to go. yes-its the keeping it off that is SO so hard. daisy my stats are eerily similar to yours-started here in march aged 35, weighing 105kgs at 165cm. have since turned 36, and got down to 79kgs..so feel we can support each other.esp. with the emotional eating thing. nice to 'meet' you all!
^^^Hi Sarahm - that is weird about the height, age and weight thing. Well done getting back down to 79kg! The remaining 13 will come off in time, you sound focussed and you've done an exceptional job so far. That's awesome mate!
Thanks guys! I'll be back tomorrow. Bed now before I fall asleep at the 'puter....
