Well after a bit of a rollercoaster year healthwise and recently being told I have high cholestrol (its 6.5 at the moment
and blood pressure that is borderline for medication (I'm only 29) I have decided its time to pull my finger out and start taking better care of myself!
My husband and I have joined the local gym and I have started walking 2km/day at lunchtime when I am at work. I have quite an active outdoors job when I am not in the office so I am always moving around/walking lots etc. I just need to eat better and cut my portion size down.
Some days I find myself obsessing over food and when I can eat again. Lately I have been eating so much its ridiculous! I would have dinner then two hours later be hungry. I knew I wasn't pregnant or anything like that, just constantly feeding my face! We have two (lollies/chips and soft drink) vending machines at work PLUS the charity chocolate bars people bring in for their local sporting groups etc. so it can be hard not to give in to temptation and buy them!
I started taking blackmores "weightless" appetite suppressants this week, I am starting to notice that I am only eating about half of my main meals and i don't get that hunger pain feeling as frequently and i get to the point of just not wanting to eat anymore, as opposed to eating until i was going to explode. I am gonig to try these in the interim but i am looking into starting Censored (maybe) at the end of January after my best friends wedding which I am her maid of honour and already have my dress etc which fits like a glove!
I am looking to lose 23kgs - I am 29, married with no kids and just want to be healthier and feel better about myself. I think my weight is proportioned kind of evenly - I am 5'10 so I don't look it but I weigh 93kg.
Look forward to sharing my journey with all of you
