Im very short and really quite fat. Clothed I can appear not too bad but remove those clothes and it looks like Jabba the Hutt has set up camp under my bra.
I vaguely hoped that at some point the balance would tip from "meh I dont care enough quite yet" to "ok I need to take action".
I know what to do. Eat less. Move more. I know what a healthy diet is. Less crap fats and white carbs, more protein veg etc. I know I need to do this for my bodys health. I know I need to do this for my kids.
However I am so far down the list of priorities and so so so tired from FT work and two small dcs.
I miss being comfortable. And I miss the waistband of my knickers which has disappeared daily under the Belly since i dont know when.
I hate being fat. And I have tried. And I need to try again. But I am so incredibly shit at it.
Yes I hear you. I lost load if weight a few years ago and it's creeping back up. I'm still way under what I was but I no longer feel good about myself I cam do it, I'm just choosing not to for some reason. Chocolate tastes too good.
Well we could swap (for some reason sending a naked picture of myself to a random on the interner doesnt bother me) Then you'd get shock value without potentkal embarrassment value if someone saw - you'd just deny all knowledge. My knickers don't fit either
Tbh it has to click for me. I ha e to feel the fear and I have to have the time to exercise. And I'm not there yet Just for the recording am not in the habit of sending naked photos to Internet randoms. Only when they ask nicely.
Funnily enough I was idly thinking the same about myself this week - and wondering if a photo of me in bra and pants would traumatise the children if I stuck it up all over the house to keep pointing out to myself HOW fat I now am.
I am startled to catch sight of myself in mirrors because when I look down I look ok...a bit overweight, but not bad. And then I look at myself properly and realise I'm actually VERY overweight. My problem is that I was always thin in my youth - and in my head I still am.
Why don’t you put a picture of you on your fridge from when you liked what you looked like, as an incentive to get there again? It is difficult, I feel your pain. Remember, 90% of weight loss is in the mind. Good luck
It really is 90% food and only 10 % exercise. For years I tried to train my way slim but it was only by cutting down the volume of food I was eating that worked in the end. It is annoying but you have to accept that for a couple of weeks (for me it was approximately 2 1/2 weeks) you will feel hungry. You will have an empty feeling and will want to eat more. If you can tough it out and know that it only takes a couple of weeks for your stomach to shrink and get used to a smaller volume of food then you will lose weight. It's a sod but it really does come down to willpower.
