Fairie's Progress

Postby Fairie » Thu Feb 22, 2007 9:41 am

Since Scott put this section in I have been using excuse after excuse not to start this diary. If I don't see it written down I can avoid the issue of my weight.

I have been overweight all my life but in the last 10 years it has really got out of control. I have tried so many "diets" and had the best success with SureSlim, I lost almost 30kg. Sadly I have put a lot of that back on. :(

We run our own business from home which is a 24/7 job, there are no holidays together as some one has to always be here. Our busy times is always over Christmas and New Years so we are usually to exhausted to enjoy either. I think in the last few years I have begun to get depressed as we always put in the hard work and time for very little rewards. As we are getting older it is taking so much more out of us but DH is not yet ready to give up.
I do feel that a lot of time I resent the situation we are now in and turn to food for comfort.

I also have a son with mental problems now because of drugs, he has been in a mental hospital twice in the the last 7 years and I do so worry about him. I know at 32 he is responible for his own actions but you are a parent for life not just to a certain age. I know for my own sanity I have to take a step back and just pray he doesn't go of the rails again but it is so hard.

So I am now going to keep this diary to try and put my feelings down here instead of going to the fridge/pantry. That is going to be hard as I am not one to be so open with my feelings / thoughts.

I got on the scales this morning first time in about 3 weeks, was happy to see that I had not put anything on in that time but didn't loose any either.

When I started SureSlim nearly 2 years ago my starting weight was 136.5kg this morning it was 125kg, I will weigh myself every week and write it down in here wether it is a loss or not.

My first goal is to loose 5 kg before I have a weeks holiday at the end of March.

Second goal will be to loose another 10kg before my 50th in June.

Sorry for such a long post but I had to face up to everything and I do so need everyone's support.

Hi Fay

Thanks for sharing some of your personal info with us and you're right it isn't always an easy thing to do so it is appreciated.

I big thing I find that helps is preparing my food ahead of time. I tend not to have other more convenient bad foods if I have already got it there ready for when I want it, I also hate spending the money on extra food if I have spent the time making it up.

We are here for any support you need so just sing out and there is usually someone close by.

All the best with your goals Fay, be strong and you will realise them. :D

Hi Fay *hugs* to you!! It can't have been easy sharing some of your personal life with us all and for that I say a big thankyou!

You are right about your son...it doesn't matter how old they get, you are still their mum and it doesn't stop the pain...all I can say is hang in there mate, don't give up on him and always be there for him no matter what......

I can understand why you have turned to food, but as you said now you have this diary to write in instead of turning to food for comfort! Everytime you feel down, pen a message here...we are here for you darl....good times and bad.......keep going mate I too lost 30kg and regained it all back (+6 more :roll: ) I know what a struggle it is to get back on track and focus, but I found the best thing I did was to put that previous loss in the back of mind....Scott picked me up on it one day,he said to me you are always going on about 'I lost the weight and put it back on again' why don't you just forget about it and move on because everytime you say that, you get down and eat some more, how is this helping you. I got cranky, but then realised he was right I was using it as a negative and not a positive...so now I don't think about like that anymore and it has helped tremendously!!!

YOu can do this Fay, at times you have to become selfish and think about "ME", but that is the way it has to be!!! We are here for you! :wink:

Thanks guys, I know the best way to succeed is to plan ahead and I will try to do that as much as possiable.

Yesturday was a good day, I was able to stay on plan and felt good. :D

Tonight we are having a couple of friends over for a BBQ and I will have 2 Scotch & Cokes (diet) only. I am not even going to make a Garlic Bread like I usually do as I will end up eating most of it. :oops:

Had a good week food wise and lost 2kg and even managed to walk about an hour every day. :D :D :D

I am so mad......I can barely put one foot in front of the other, I have so much pain in my left foot, knee, elbow and right knee. I am just about living on painkillers.

Over the last 12 months I have been to Chiropractors, Phyisio's, Podiatrists, and Foot/Bone Specialists. Every time they see how overweight I am and don't look any further. They just say if you lost some weight you would not have any problems :evil: :evil: :evil:

Saw my GP again yesterday arvo and he is now 90% sure I have Gout, I had the blood test this morning so will know for sure next week. Do you know the relief I feel just to have someone give a name to why I have been feeling like crap for over 12 months.

So now I can only improve from here. :D :D :D

Fairie I understand. Before they diagnosed my Thyroid - I thought I was going crazy. I was absolutely exhausted all the time, couldn't get out of bed or even raise my head off the pillow. I was crying all the time, losing my hair and finally after about 6 months of feeling like this - I went to the Drs and he did the test and whamo - I had a name to what I was going through. It makes a huge difference to know that you do have something and that it has a medical name for it.

Happy snaps (Leally Blonde 2) for losing 2 kilos and walking as well :D
2008 - my year to be great!!
