Starting Again (How many times have i said this!!)

Postby Alamana » Mon Mar 24, 2008 8:40 pm

I've just spent a weekend away in Melb hadn't gone exactly as I'd planned. Instead of buying all of these great clothes that 6-7 months ago I would have fit into.. I couldn't even get them over my hips. Everything feels so uncomfortable on me and I'm feeling so depressed. I have been going to the gym for the past month 4-5 times a week but have found that I have gained about 4kg. I've put it down to the fact that because i'm exercising, my naughty brain tells me I can eat more so I have huge portions. I reward myself with food! How silly! Because I felt so disheartened - like my hard work has been for nothing - I have fallen off the rails again. :oops: I have researched soo many different diets/lifestyle changes and they all say different things and I am feeling so confused! I have really been struggling with emptying my bowels and i'm constantly feeling bloated. Does anyone have any advice?

I'm starting my own lifestyle change tomorrow - combining a lot of tips i've learnt from various diets/ lifestyle changes. I desperately want to stick to it.. Its starting to become an obsession and I don't want it to take over my life (my bf is SO sick of hearing me talk about different diets!!). My bf posted a picture of me from our Melbourne trip on facebook this afternoon and i've made him take it off. It was extremely confronting - when did I start looking like such a blimp? My face looks so chubby and I don't look happy... I feel sad..stressed..

Anyway - time to get back on the rails and change my life..

Hi Alamana (edit, just read the intro section, hi Kel!), welcome to the forum! Nice to have another Taswegian around!

Making these changes is hard. You've had a long time working up to the situation you are in now, turning it around isn't going to be an overnight thing! Just take things one little step at a time and if you need any local help, give me a hoy! I've been a bit busy to be on here too frequently of late, but always happy to help!!

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