Bec's new beginning

Postby modernchild » Mon Nov 12, 2007 12:17 am

I joined last night, poured my heart out (well not completely) and i was surprised that i felt somewhat better.

This is my ramblings...sorry to those who have read it before..

i am overweight, i know i am but at times i just don't see it.
IF i look in the mirror it is from afar and i don't linger looking its a quick look and then i'm gone.
We have built in wardrobes in our bedroom with sliding mirrored doors, i push the door closest to me away so i can not see myself.
I don't go out much, i hate social gatherings as i know people are commenting on my size.
i cut out all tags on my clothes so no one sees what size i take.
i don't have photos taken and if there is a photo of me i can't bear to look at it.
I eat in secret, mostly when my husband goes to bed so he sees nothing.
I know what i weigh and it horrifies me but i think to myself 'well at least its not xxx' which is 10kgs heavier.
I can't even in here write down what i weigh-i am ashamed.


So that was last night...

Then this morning i got up and had to go to the hardware store which is 2kms away....AND I WALKED THERE! :o :o

I got my 2yr old put him in the pram, grabbed my mp3 and off we went.

I was buggered by the time we got back but i did it!!

Then for lunch i made some salad lavish-yum...so different to say hot chips.

Is it possible my journey has started??

A great start...... I know you will be successful at this :D

Keep up the great work!

Oh, what strategy are you using to lose weight? Can I ask? I believe different things work for different people, so I am in no way asking you this to place judgement on you or try to get you to change your approach. I am just nosey hehehehe :lol:

Have a great day and well done on a fantastic start to your weightloss journey!

Cheers

Michelle

its when we realise what we have become, that we begin to change.

I didn't think i was that overweight until i saw pics and my reflection one day and it hit me.

Its awesome you started today. So many just put it off, but starting the next day shows u are really wanting to lose the weight. you seem determined and thats awesome.

Well i have made the decision to calorie count and have got the 'Fats and Figures' books back out!
Now actually writing a weekly menu and only buying what i need.

My only big hurdle (only-i think there is more than one!!LOL i'll do this one first!) is sugar- i find that if i deprive myself i'm more likely to binge on it.....any suggestions?

I don't eat heaps of it but i do like a treat every now and then.

RE: sugar cravings, you could try getting some chupachup lollipops and keeping them around - when you have a craving, you can suck on one, and they last ages.. not too many calories either :)

otherwise, maybe some diet jelly or something?

Hey!

Love the Fats and Figures book....... it's great!

How many calories are you allowed per day?

I like Mandie's suggestion......... I have a treat daily of 100 -150 per day, I have a sweet tooth too! :D

Good luck and I look forward to reading about your weight loss journey!

I'm starting with 1750cals.
Funnily enough i struggled today to get to that amount!

AND i walked again today. Took my son with me again in the pram..good grief pushing him up hills is hard!

But as hard as it was i did it. :D

Also started chewing chewy again, its a good sweet treat in a way and since my eating usually happens at night i pop it in my mouth straight after dinner-and i haven't the need to eat.

To explain why i eat at night is not only because no one is looking but i work from home and i am awake till 3am most days working and i do actually get hungry at 3am but now i make a green tea (that has to be an aquried taste?? ugh!) but it seems to tie me over till i get up at 8.30am.


I am so glad i found this place!!
