Support needed

Postby tiffanyp » Tue Jan 02, 2007 2:54 pm

I am new at Forums, however have certainly read a few!
I am not sure if I trust the world of web chats, however, I certainly need to gain some support to assist me in my weight loss.
This time last year I was 10 kilo lighter than I am today. Going to the beach yesterday was very embarrassing and I never ventured down to the water!
I dont fit in to any of my clothing, my husband loves my big boobs and I am hating them as it is the first sign of weight gain!
I have a wardrobe full of clothing that I must get in to.
My weight gain has been completely my fault. I am an emotional eater and I have stopped excercising due to taking up full time work. My husband goes away fishing for work and I have two small children to look after and a house to manage as well as working a 50 hour week - when am I supposed to excercise.
Today is the first day of my new approach to my diet.
I have packed my sandshoes and excercise wear so I can go for a walk before I leave work to collect the children.
I have decided to take a few tips from this web site and start eating less, not necessarily change my diet (other than to reduce the naughties like chocoloate and alcohol) but use a smaller plate, eat slower and earlier in the evening.
I have printed off a diary to record my eating patterns and I have also printed off a few of the recipies to try.

I look forward to reporting on how my weight loss is going.

Today I am 65 cm tall and I weigh close to 78 kilo's.
My goal is to reach 65 kilo or under (pre kids I was 61) but my body hasnt been to that weight for years!!

Wish me Luck! :)

Hi Tiffany and welcome to the forum....It certainly sounds like you have your hands full!! Just make changes where you can (as you are already doing!) I find gradual changes last longer than just gun-ho into things first off!!

I wish you all the best and you will certainly get plenty of support here!!

Hiya Tiffany

Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy your stay :) It's definitely tough being an emotional eater, the key is to find other things to distract yourself from eating. Do you have any hobbies you can throw yourself into when you get the urge to eat emotionally?
Good on you for starting up the walking, and good luck with it!

Thanks so much!

Wow, thank you all so much for posting some reply's to my cry for support!
I was up thismorning and went for a walk before getting organised for work. We live very close to the beach so it was actually wonderful to enjoy the day so early, listening to the waves lapping on the beach!
Before I went to get my children last night I went for a very fast 30 minute walk along the esplanade of the city foreshore.
I made myself a Banana Smoothie for breaky and I feel great already!
Albeit my shirt buttons are bursting and I have a very nasty 'muffin top' happening above my pants!
Thanks again for the wonderful support. My husband congratulated me today and said that he thinks it is great that I am finally 'moving' again!

Tiffany :P

Hi Tiffany! The beach walks sound great, especially at that time of the morning - the best time of the day :D

I know what it's like to have a wardrobe full of clothes you can't fit into. I was at the stage where all I could wear was tracksuit pants lol. When a work dinner came up, I had to make a mercy dash to the local shopping centre to buy something to wear :shock:

Best wishes for your weight loss journey :)
