Well today is a fresh start, the start of a new healthier me, I have to loose weight now before it effects my health any further, it's already giving me a bad knee, plus I can barely walk any distance without getting out of breathe and I also have Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and the heavier you are to more this effects you, in my case, no periods. As Paul and I want a baby I have to get my weight down, because PCOS effects your fertility. Sorry for over-share.
I have been inspired by Cathy Zielske who has been blogging her weight loss as well as her scrapbooking, I thought that if I blog my progress it might make me feel like I have someone to answer to, which might help motivate me. Before, I would eat well for a few weeks and then just give up, I don't do fad diets so I can't even blame that, I just lost motivation. I also thought that if I scrapbook it too then that would be a good motivator. I'm not doing any particular diet, I'm just going to eat sensibly, three meals a day, without snacking in between, and do some exercise, starting with walking. If anyone has any more suggestions I would welcome them.
So here are my vital statistics and brace yourself for some horrible photos, I am aware that I look quite different from my profile photo, I do look different with my hair up and no make-up:
Weight: 21st 3lbs (hoping scales are wrong).
Not sure what my target is, i'm 5'6" and I want to be about a UK size 14, so i'm not sure what weight I would need to be, I want to lose at least 7/8 stone minimum but I'm not sure how long I should expect it to take, I guess a couple of years?
I will be weighing myself weekly, and taking photos every four weeks so I will try and blog at least every saturday (apart from next saturday, will have to be tuesday but I will weigh myself) with my weight, i'm only going to do monthly photos because otherwise I won't be able to see any difference.
I really hope you can join me for my journey : )
