I think it's about time I get off my butt and I think it's about time I tell everyone of my plans so there's no excuses.
I also think it's about time that I surround myself with people encountering the same difficulties so that I can give and get encouragement.
I have always been overweight and steadily climbing over the years. In high school, I thought I was hideous and ugly (in hindsight I wish I looked like that now). My entire family is obsessed with weight and appearances. My mother had me doing weight watchers when I was 8 years old (I wasn't overweight then) and all through school I had her voice in my head telling me what I should and shouldn't wear due to my size (I was a size 14 in year 12).
I am now a size 18 to 20. I broke my foot 6 weeks ago and weighed myself at the hospital... 93kg. 6 weeks of hobbling around the house, I now can't fit into the pants I was wearing at the hospital that day.
I am a very active person though... I horse ride, walk my dogs, have a fairly physical job and enjoy getting out and getting active. My problem is CHOCOLATE!!!! I can't get away from it! I CRAVE it! I WANT it!!! I can't go a meal without having a little bit (or alot) at the end and I LOVE iced coffee's. I'm a real sweet tooth and have next to no will power to stop myself engorging on anything with sugar in it. I'm scared I will end up diabetic. I can see it happening the rate that I am going. I want to STOP!! I want to feel healthy and look better to my husband. I want to look good for me! I don't want to feel bad for my poor horse when I go for a ride as well
I know that my problem is the way I eat. I signed up with Lite n Easy today just for a kick start in discipline (if the food is there and already made I am more likely to stick to the plan). Once I have done a few weeks with them and developed a better eating habit, I want to go onto something that I can do for myself at home (so that hubby can eat the same meal).
So wish me luck... here it goes! And thanks for having me here!
