I am here like you all, on a "highway" to a healthier me. Reason why I call it a highway is due to the time that it will take for me to lose the weight and there is no end to a highway, as there is no end to changing to a healthy lifestyle and maintaining it !
I've been on my weightloss program for a week now, some people may think Im taking an easy way out, others who have a genuine interest will be able to understand why I've chosen this program.
I started my weightloss at 207.9kgs, that was the weight I was when I weighed in at the obesity clinic at westmead. I was shattered. Being the weight I am, my movement was restricted, I had severe pressure on my ankles due to the weight and swelling, my knees and back could not support me walking more than 50m. Therefore my specialist recommending I jump on a meal replacement program to kick off my initial weightloss. I am on what they consider an intensive program for the first 3 weeks until I go back to be reviewed. I replace all my 3 meals with a shake and have 2 cups of vegies from a pre approved list. I have been on this program for 4 days now and have already lost 2.3kgs.
I am really looking forward to being able to walk more than 50m and start exercising once I lose a little weight to ease the pressure and to switch over to a healthy and sensible eating plan.
Sorry, if this has been a bit of a ramble, didn't know what to write, how to write as there's so many emotions going through me this time round ! I will add pictures of my Before shots asap.
Thanks for listening guys
PS ... Just out of curiosity, am I the heaviest person on this forum ?
