For the past what seems like centuries,I have been fighting a losing battle to lose weight. In fact the more I lose, the more I seem to gain.
I have tried Weighwatchers, Slimming World, Nurses slimming clinics, even been prescribed weight loss tablets from the doctor, I have increased my exercise and even joined a gym. I keep a food diary. But the weight does not seem to shift.
I am so ashamed at how fat I have got, I start eating healthier but then I have a bad day with my depression which leads into this vicious circle of eating, being fat, being depressed because of my weight, so crack open a bag of crisps or a bar of chocolate.
I know when I reach for the junk that it is bad for me, I know it is the cause of my weight gain, I may not be the brightest button in the box but I know what I eat and the lack of exercise causes me to have this problem.
I blame the anti-depressants, I blame my low mood, I blame the weather but in reality I know I should blame myself.
How can I get out of this rut? How can I stop myself from eating the rubbish? Only I can do this… I need support, I need help, I need encouragement and this is my dear blog is where I am going to gain the support from!!
So here goes…. bear with me its going to be a long bumpy road
