I don't know how it happened.
When I moved in with my boyfriend I was 85kg. Heavier than I should have been for my age, but I still felt healthy.
7 years on and I'm 121kg.
I just found out that I might have PCOS or Endometriosis. I'm Bipolar and Epileptic. And I just quit smoking which has just resulted in a very quick gain of 6kg.
I know I can drop weight fairly quickly. I eat so much junk food, too much chocolate usually. I drink too much softdrink. Thing is I always panic about how much I have to lose. And I think. I'll start losing weight as soon as I finish this packet of smarties or as soon as we've gone through all the solo cans we wont buy any more. It's not very realistic.
Giving up smoking has given me a whole new way of looking at my eating habits and I'm sure, if I apply the same methodology to eating and exercise as I do with smoking, and take it a day at a time I should be ok. But I know I'll need support and encouragement as I did with the smoking, so I decided to look for a forum that will be able to help and here I am!
So, I'm 121kg. Or I was last night. Easter isn't over but I'm trying to be careful how much I take in. I have decided that my sugar 'quit' day will be May the 1st.
In total, I would like to lose approximately 50kg. Let's hope I can get there!
