I stumbled across this website tonight and having read through some of the discussions I realised this is where I need to be if I'm going to be successful in conquering my weight loss.
I've been dieting all my life and have always managed to lose weight successfully. However, after having 2 children, I seem to be struggling with all aspects of weight loss. Over the past 9 months I have tried to lose weight - losing a few kgs, then putting it back on and more. Instead of losing my desired 10+ kgs, I have gained 12+ kgs!!!
I only saw the 'real' me in the mirror last week and couldn't believe how big I am (strange how we don't see it creep on and only realise when it's too late!). I'm devastated as I've never been this size before and I feel incredibly embarrassed and uncomfortable when I see my friends and family, knowing exactly what they're thinking about me!!
So for the sake of myself, my marriage and my kids.....it's time to do something about it.
Hopefully I will find the motivation and support I need from this forum.
