I am twice the woman I used to be and not in the good way!
I have been over weight for the last 18 years and after waiting 8 years to conceive, one miscarriage, one gorgeous child born with special needs, one four year legal case, the death of our precious second child, the sale of our home, a trip around oz, another gorgeous baby, another gorgeous baby born by a horrendeous c-section and another 2 house moves, ALL within 5 years, I am tired and very fat!!!
On Saturday I woke up and I can't tell you why it was different to every other New Year's Day or Monday that I was going to start a diet, but it just was. Something had changed and I have motivation and will power, I am ready!
On Saturday I weighed in at 136.7kg and it is daunting and I am ashamed I let it get this far. (To those of you out there that have just crept on 10 - 20kgs, lose it sensibly NOW before the stretch marks, sore joints, gall bladder problems..........and it just all seems too hard)
Today I weigh 132.7kg. I have lost 4 kg in 3 days. I have a long way to go but it is a start!
