happy new year

Postby milo » Fri Jan 05, 2007 6:33 pm

Hi, I am new to this site. The web site was so usful. I was very impressed. And I am hoping to find some inspiration and loads of support on this forum.

A bit about me, I am 26, 27 soon :( getting old. For years I have had no self confidence and now we are palnning to have kids soon I thought it was time to come out of my shell.

I have always thought I looked fat, but I look back on photos and think gosh, what was I thinking. The photos of me now however arnt very flattering at all, especially the ones I saw of me at christmas.

In 2005 I went to weight watches and lost 5 kilos for my wedding. I went from 83kg to 77kg. Then I put it all back on during the honey moon and got back down to 74kg which I was so proud of. But I have put it all back on and my scales arnt working but I can say I am easliy back to 83kg, maybe more. This disapoints me because I said I would never go back over 75kg.

I joined this site because I have always said (basically every day) I will be good today and I never am, by lunch time I eat loads of crap and it continues all day long.
It was my new year resolution to lose 10 kilos but by the way I am going I will be putting on 10kg more.

So I hope I can do this, because I am getting embarressed to go out and I feel so uncomfortale with in me.

I look forward to getting to know you all, sorry for my whole life story :lol: Just thought it would be better to get it out now :D
Mel :)

Hi,

Like you I look back at photos where I thought I was fat and think what was I thinking? My mum used to be constantly on my back about losing weight, (and still is for all the good it does!) but realistically I'd say I was pretty close to my ideal weight range! Isn't it funny how warped a perception we can have about ourselves; perhaps we tell ourselves for so long that we're overweight that eventually it just become true...

Dee, I think thats totally true. Its amazing how our weight can play with our head and how much it takes part of our lives... I am sure other people are well worse off then us but here we worry about the way we look :roll:

I gotta say I can't wait until I get to the point where food is no longer such an obsession!
