Gosh, you people are motivational! I was feeling really down yesterday (see my introduction post @ http://www.weightloss.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=25207
Now I have read through a few peoples posts and realise that it's not just me! It's not just me who has fallen back off the bandwagon. It's not just me that's overweight and feeling crappy about it. It's not just me who is feeling unlike themselves and wanting to change. . . for good.
I really liked someone's signature that was something about not wanting their 30's to be like their 20's. This year in June I was thirty. I organised a get together that I pulled out of at the last minute because I hated how I felt and couldn't wear what I wanted to wear. Although that seems so superficial my weight is intrinsically linked to how much social interaction I have and how much confidence I feel to get out there amongst it.
I think instead of going out that night, to the event that I organised, I sat at home with some junk food and made myself feel better but eating. Sure, that works in the short term but it's now October and I still feel the same bloomin' way.
I have already decided that I won't be going to my Christmas party of the 3rd Dec looking like this. Last year I was about 65kg and everyone said I looked great. I loved that day. There is no way that I will go again this year with an added bonus of extra cellulite and kilos, a nice round face for photo's and hair that makes me look like a mushroom....
SO instead of sitting around feeling sorry for myself, eating my way into myself and avoiding summer and Christmas parties and socialisation I am going to try my hardest to do something about it. I can't sit on Christmas day with the camera so that no one else will take photo's of me... That was me in my 20's. It's definitely not me in my 30's.
Wish me luck, I have changed my eating patterns at work, more about that later but it allows me to log in each and every day. I look forward to 'meeting' you.
Much love, Kelvi
