I've had a weight problem all my life. Being able to gain it easily that is. I'm an emotional eater, always have been. In my 20s when I was single and working I could spend every evening working out and boy I looked great! Moving to my 30s was a bit of a mid-life crisis point and I gained 20kgs which I did eventually lose with a lot of hard work with gym workouts and a personal trainer over a year (still single and with loads of time to work out). Moving to my 40s sees me with two small children of my own, two step-children, a husband with work and health stress and me eating everything I can get hold of.
Fast forward to two days ago ........ OMG I have 22kg to lose to get into the "healthy range" ! So after an embarrassing discussion with hubby (who I suspect doesn't find me that attractive at the moment) we have agreed to find the money and for me to make the time to work out. So I have enlised the services of a personal trainer at a very lovely gym. It's my birthday, anniversary and christmas gifts all rolled into one! So Monday is my first meeting with her to work out my plan of action. Oh and I've also just orded some lixproenol to try too (first time for everything). My initial aim is to get rid of at least 10kgs in 8 weeks. Fingers crossed ......... well almost cos they a bit porky at the moment
