Hi guys and gals.
I'm a newbie here and would love to interact with people on a similar journey to me.
I have 66 kilos to lose.....arghghgh.
I've struggled with my weight all my life and gone up and down - smallest I can remember as an adult was 79kgs.
I'm nearly 37 and can now admit that my size disgusts me. I feel unhealthy, unattractive and scared. Scared that I'm not the best mum I can be (single mum to a 5 year old girl). I want to be able to run around like crazy with her, and be able to go down the slides / jumping castles etc with her.
While my health is not yet bad - sugar levels, blood pressure, cholesterol etc are all ok, they soon will be affected and I need to stop that now!!!
I've given myself little targets and rewards - so watch this space.
I've started a blog about this called strippingbackthelayers.com as I believe it is so much more than the food we eat that has us ending up here. I just hope I am finally conquering all the demons that have me reaching for something that is not good for me.
See you soon.
Memo to self - must do that ticker factory thing. How do you do it?
