Hi, I'm new here. I have been a member a few years ago but was never really active.
I have come to the point that I feel I really NEED to loose weight. The numbers on the scale seem to be creeping up instead of down, and today I am weighing 94 kg. A true shock now that it seems to sink in and I guess I have been in denial for way too long. Years ago I practiced yoga 3 mornings a week for 2 hours per time and this is the time where the fat seemed to start melting off my body. Since I stopped (because of circumstances) and changes in my personal life I have gained 14kg. Ouch. 14kg in one year is a lot.
Yesterday I bought myself some larger (and went to the plus section to find them) gym tops which in itself was difficult. But I did it so at least I can feel comfortable when working out at the gym, then did a 30 minute treadmill walk, 5 minute heavy-level cycling and 5 minute rowing. Just to get started.
For me it is the food that is the problem. Emotional eating occurs, when I'm tired I eat, when I'm bored I eat, when I'm happy I eat, when I'm angry I eat etc. Another pitfall is that as soon as I have lost some weight, I feel I ok and start heavy bingeing again! What's with that? And how to overcome this weird habit?
Thank you for reading and I hope to be able to finally kickstart this slow metabolism body into first gear!!
