Hi All

Postby Kerrie28 » Sat Feb 03, 2007 9:20 pm

I just thought I'd take this opportunity to say hello. This is the first time I have ever been involved in a forum of any kind so if I tend to waffle on and sound a bit amatuerish I apologise! I have struggled with my weight for what seems like decades (I turn 30 next Sunday). After the birth of my second child I went through a bit of a black patch and just kept eating. Then I decided to try and lose weight by going to the local gym and using a personal trainer who would record my weight loss and give me motivation etc, etc, etc. I just found that it would make me feel embarassed and ashamed if I had put on anything. This made the process stressful and If I ate one thing bad I thought well stuff it I might as well eat the whole packet! So I've decided that I'm not doing anymore diets (tried heaps same shame spiral) and I am just going to try and eat healthily and move more. Seems to be working so far. I just felt like I needed motivation to keep going and thought a forum would be a perfect medium. Anyways, I'm looking forward to chatting with you all and learning from you and sharing my own stories (I know I've already written a novel!!)

Thanks,

Keep on smiling

Hi kerrie and welcome! Waffling is completely allowed at this forum!! The shame thing is a killer hey. I used to just eat the whole packet of X bad thing and then go out and buy another packet and eat it down to where the old one was just so no-one would know :roll:

It's good to be accountable...to yourself!!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
