I had these forums bookmarked and think I may have registered ages ago but couldn't log in with what I thought was my user name and password. tried other combinations and no luck.
So I have re-registered.
I lost 25Kg last year at Weight Watchers. Since then (from about October onwards) I've gone up, gone down, gone up, gone down by a kilo or so.
Recently I have been sick. Actually, I've been off work on sickness benefits since the beginning of March. I went back to work this week gone on 50% of my hours.
During the time I was sick, I couldn't be bothered to think about losing weight. I just weighed myself regularly and wrote it down and if I saw it creep up I'd make an effort to be careful over the next few days, go out for a walk, eat better.
I just weighed myself this morning and the lowest weight I was when I was sick was 134.3 kg. At that time, I know I'd lost a few kilos because I didn't feel like eating for a few weeks. Today, I am 140.2 kg. I'm shocked to say the least.
There is NO WAY I am putting that weight back on. But at the same time, I'm still struggling getting my life back in order. I work one day and am pretty much asleep most of the next day.
I'm still doing WW, it works for me but just need to get back on track. I'm not here to look for other weight loss methods. I thought I'd post here, I find the WW forums technically crap and they are also very cliquey as well.
So basically, that's my story. I'm going to start tracking again today and just about to go for a walk....but only because I need to get out of the house. Yesterday was a "sleep most of the day" day and I'm not working today so feel like I am going stir crazy sitting around.
Also, (sory my post is getting long) I am a nurse and I do alot of walking in my job. I've worn a pedometer to work and done over 10,000 steps in a 7 hour shift when it's been really busy. When I was sick, I would walk (because I can't drive) or catch the bus but no where near as active as when I was at work and before I got sick. I don't feel as fit as I did.
