Hi All, my name is Chelsie and i found this site yesterday. I am 33 years old and have a massive 90kgs to lose! I know this is a huge amount of weight to lose and will take a long time but Im finally set to do it.
Three years ago i was hit by a car in a shopping centre car park and fractured my spine, hip and pelvis... the weight has piled on ever since and Ive made so many excuses as to why i cant fix it but now Im realising that if I dont do something serious soon.. I wont live to see my daughter grow up and she needs me!
My excuses have included,,, its the medication, its the PCOS its the back injury, its because the sky is blue... yes these things dont help but if im really honest its only got so bad because I eat badly and dont do anything!
On November 26th 2011 my beautiful partner proposed to me and although I was over the moon my first thoughts were,,, i cant get married.... no one is taking my photo and i certainly aint wearing a big white dress, i dont want people looking at me!
I know that the health aspect should be enough to make me want to lose weight but it hasnt been... for the first time I really want to do this for me.
I have finally joined a gym and spoken to them about my illness' and injuries and have a trainer who is helping me with what i can do despite my back. Yesterday I had my first 45 minute session with Matt and i ache all over but I AM going to get up today and go back!
I think this website is an awesome idea and it would be really nice to have someone who understands the struggles of being overweight... my friends and partner are great but they just dont understand how it feels to struggle to do your shoes up or put a sock on... the simple things.
I really hope you all reach your goals no matter how much or little you need to lose.... Goodluck and Happy 2012.. make it your year! xx
