This is the LAST day!(7 Posts)
Okay, I am hyping myself up here. I have decided this is the last day I am an obese mess. I have decided this is the last day I don't do anything about my weight or health.
I'm 5'6 and pre-getting knocked up I was 10.5 stone. Full term preggers I was 14 stone. Post-pushing a child out my cracker, I went down to just under 11 stone.
DS is now 3. I am now 14 stone AGAIN. Nothing fits. I have a gut. An actual gut. My thighs chafe. I get congratulated on my pregnancy when I'm not even pregnant. I tried on lingerie the other day & nearly needed lube & a shoe horn just the get the bloody thing back off.
Im one of those women that should never wear leggings but wears leggings because am I fuck going to try and zip anything up.
I drink cans of Coke constantly. I live next door to a fucking takeaway FGS & the woman who works there worries when she's not seen me for a day or two. She probably knows me better than most of my friends.
It's beyond a joke.
So I'm either having a midlife crisis or an epiphany because I've just bought a treadmill, signed up for a 5k in July, thrown out all the crap food in my house, bought a load of healthy foods & poured the beer away
sob I've thrown out my cigs. I've blocked the JustEat website from my phone so I'm not tempted to order from next door on my card & I've deleted the dominoes app.
I can do this. I CAN do this. I've never had much self control in life (trust me) but I have done it before through running, caning the gym & sticking to a strict diet so I can do this.
Please tell me I can do this
Yes you can do this!
Consider joining a slimming club with a weekly weigh-in, it's amazing the difference it can make knowing you are going to be weighed. Slimming World, or Weightwatchers can be good.
I thought your thread was some sort of apocalypse thing from its title. I clicked on it as I thought if it's the end of the world, I might as well know about it, and eat a biscuit.
You sound very determined, and full of motivation, OP; the best possible frame of mind for this business. You can definitely do it.
Ha if it's the end of the world, I'm fucked. Threw out all my non-perishables.
I need to not break out of this motivational mood because otherwise I'll end up going & getting prawn crackers.
Lost 5 pounds in four days! Probably water weight but realising I have 5 stone to shed its something!
Wo-hooooo well done mrs.
How are you feeling are you missing your treats? Have you stayed off the fags?
What are you eating? X
Wish I had your motivation
I'm missing the cans of Coke more than the fags & takeaways!! I feel so tired without 4 litres of caffeine!
I'm eating porridge or smoothie or poached eggs for breakfast, soup or salad for lunch, and usually fish for tea with a jacket potato.
Not sure how balanced that is!
Currently trying to keep my toddler away from the treadmill
