Hello from a newbie

Postby LittlePatch » Mon Jun 03, 2013 10:33 pm

Hi,

I look back 10, 9, 8, 7 and 6 years and I was fit, athletic and healthy. I look back 5 years and I have health issues - always getting sick but still reasonably fit and athletic. I look back 4 years and I started putting on weight and exercise levels are decreasing. I look back 3 years and I am overweight, unhealthy and not exercising much. I look back 2.5/2 years and I am overweight, unfit, unhealthy and sedentary.

Today I weigh in at 104kg and am my own worse enemy. I hate my body!

6 months ago my partner of 8.5 years left Me and it has rocked me to the core. I now need to lose weight and regain my fitness so I can a) feel good about myself b) not be embarrassed with my body c) buy sexy clothes d) find myself a new love e) get ready to have children.

I am here for support, help, encouragement, advice - whatever you can offer me.

Cheers,

LP

Welcome LP.
Well congrats for pulling yourslf out of the doledrums when someone leaves.....its hard but onwards and upwards i say. Put yourself first with your health and everything else will fall in place. Its hard work but really what isn't. It will get easier so take this opportunity and run with it.
Look forward to your progress.

Hi LittlePatch

I'm so sorry about your ex... what a horrible thing to experience. On the other hand, what an amazing incentive....... get yourself looking the best you ever have in how many years, new haircut, colour, wardrobe... (like one of those movies), and find an even better model of your ex...

The moment will come when one day your ex will see what he walked out on, and how good he actually had it... Pity ... you will be so far out of his reach..

Good luck hun... keep going. It may seem a very very .. verrrrrrrrrrry.. long journey.. BUT.. you have started it.. which means you were closer to your goal than you were before you started it.

Thanks Wobbles. I have spent the most amazing weekend with my mum hanging out and having drinks around the fire. Although the drinks haven't been the best thing for my health - the laughter has. Onwards and upwards. x

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... so jealous. I miss doing that with my mum (she is in the UK) and we use to go theirs and sit round the fire etc.. xx
But they say Laughter and a good sleep, solves all problems. x
