well i have just been on here for the first time,well kinda. a few weeks ago i was going to start the bodt trim then totally failed,felt like censored and now still fdeel like censored and totally hate myself for letting me get this big. ive always been bigger,even as a kid. aroun 15 i ate alot less exercised heaps and went from 85 to 73kg at my lowest,which then of course i thought i was still fat but looking back i wished i had kept up with what i was doing. i cared abit less and less over time and put weight on and seems like suddenly WOW im 105kg. i know once i start doing things differently it will be easier and i will love doing it i just need to get to that point and stop using food as comfort or for boredom. but i would be nice to have some friends on here to hep things along and keep my motivated as i dont really want to advertise to my friends etc that im going to try lose weight because ive said rthis so manyu time and failed. and im sick of failing. so anyone out there say hi if you feel like it :-)

Best of luck with it, Messo, deciding to do something about your weight is a good first step. There's lots of good information on the weightloss site about diet, exercise etc.

Hi Messo,
I used to feel exactly as you do until I found out that there is a reason we all fail so often.
It is not always will power or self control.
Sometimes our hormones are to blame and by that I mean insulin.
Insulin is produced when we eat carbs and for some of us our bodies go into overdrive and the result is that the carbs are converted to glucose and stored as fat.
Our bodies cannot convert the glucose into much energy, so we feel lethargic, tired, cold, unmotivated and we crave sugar and carbs.
I have found a fantastic set of recipe books readily available from newsagencies. As my husband is an insulin dependent diabetic, I use these recipes all the time.
"Symply so good to be true"
He is living proof that they are good.
We began living together 2 years ago and his sugar levels were very unstable and he had kidney problems needing dialysis in the near future.
The kidney problems are gone and his sugar levels are perfect. The specialists cannot believe he has such good results.
Get yourself some good recipes and start enjoying your food.
I am 103kgs and losing more fat than what I read on the scales. The other day I put on my trousers and forgot to undo the zip first. They were tight 4 weeks ago!!
Recently, I started adding pea protein isolate to my meals and snacks and this had made a lot of difference to my fat loss.
Wish I had known about it years ago.
We have to work with our bodies, give them quality food in the correct balance and the results will happen. I think that I have lost over a tonne of weight and then put it back on over the years. This time is different as I really enjoy my food and it doesnt seem like a diet.
