I took on running in march and I have lost a stone since starting..now I have 2 more stones to lose. I have joined a gym and I am planning on doing weight watchers...
I'm quite motivated but in my head I can't imagine myself being slim or toned...because I'm 34...for some reasons I have a big problem with growing older (always have since I can remember)....I feel I'm past that.
On 5th August this year I weighed 12 stone 10 pounds around a size 16. I saw a photo of myself on facebook that upset me so much I cried Around the same time I had the dreaded "when are you due?" conversation.
On 6th August I joined Myfitnesspal, it has worked for me, and two of my friends that also joined. I now weigh 10 stone 6, size 10 and it honestly hasn't been that hard. MFP makes you accountable to yourself and it feels just like managing a bank account, calories in and calories out.
It has happened so quickly for me that my head has not caught up with my body, but I feel so much better about myself. I live a healthier more active life and my only regret is spending the last few years feeling so trapped in a body I didnt want.
If I can do it, anyone can. I only have 6 lbs left to lose and feel absolutely certain that i will get there (same age as you, btw!)
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this post ! It's a real inspiration. After I have lost the 1rst stone, I have also lost my modjo for some reasons and everytime I'm thinking I can do it, I put myself down by saying that I'm too old/unfit.
Yes you can! I lost 1 1/2 stone at 39 then toned/fittened up with shred, great supportive thread on here helped me. I can 2nd MFP asI use it to keep me on straight & narrow! I fluctuate by about 7lbs as I tend to relax over school hols but I won't go back to what I was as I feel sooo much better
I know I'm silly regarding age...I was always like that, remembering getting depressed because I was going to turn 11 !! I really want to look better but more importantly I want to be fitter and having bags of energy.
