Well here I am again, back after nearly 2 years, been on and off the weightloss wagon. Now I'm back on it again, but for all the right reasons and I'm going to do it properly for once. In the past I would starve myself because it was easy and it worked in the short term. I thought why bother 'dieting' for a year to lose the weight, I could suffer living on practically nothing for 3 weeks losing the same amount I should in 6 months. But inevitably the weight comes back with a vengeance.
For such a long time I have been wanting to lose weight for the wrong reasons, to look good, make hubby proud etc.. this time around I'm doing it for my health. I want to be healthy and live as long as I can I want to be around to see my kids grow up. I had a bit of a wake up call when I had to go to hospital just before christmas last year but that didn't last, I slipped back into eating the same old crap. Recently my grandfather died, he had a heart attack, survived the first one, was doing ok, had a triple bypass surgery then died about an hour after the surgery having a massive heart attack. I thought to myself I have to change now, this could be me, afterall my pa was only slightly overweight. So this is what brings me back again.
I think this time around is going to be different, I am eating what I am supposed to I am using the CK website to track my calories and fats,protein & carbs and its been great. I have been eating heaps, never feel hungry and feel healthier after only 4 days. Another thing that is going to make a huge difference this time is my family is eating what I am eating, they have no choice. My hubby needs to lose weight too and blames my cooking for him being fat. I've told him he has no excuses, I now serve him up exactly what he needs nutritionally and anything else he eats or when he goes back for seconds its his fault.
After lots of failed exercise plans I have decided the best way for me to stick to it is to work out at home. I have been playing the wii fit for 1 1/2hrs every night and its actually working because I am totally exhausted and sore afterwards. Actually I am going to go play again before it gets too late. I just felt the need to get all this out, I'm planning on being a regular again here so I look forward to chatting with everyone
I had a browse around and seen some old faces, its great to see the fantastic losses so many of you have had!
