Too porky to cross my fingers !
Posted 8:35 PM on Fri-5-Oct-2012

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 alt

Well had a set back this week ..... apart from Monday being a holiday, I was sick Tues/Wed/Thurs/Fri & today with a horrid head cold :( and after weighing myself on the scales I've not lost anything! Zero. Zip. Nada. Nil. Better get stuck in next week I think !

Good luck, with the help of a personal trainer you will be great. Temptations are everywhere and hard to resist which would matter soo much if we had the motivation and the opportunity to get out there and do so good cardio excerise. I find having time to myself is something that is really non existent - other than sleeping :}
Good luck

go you!!! i've never had a personal trainer and just watching the ones from the gym makes me shudder. doesn't sound all that fun to me. however in saying that, im sure that they are a great motivator to people like me who are super lazy and really need a push :P

Good on you, and yes keep us posted! I found having a few healthy snacks that were quick to grab really handy. I would get some little snap lock bags and put servings of rice crackers etc into then. that way i could just grab them on the go, and was less temped to eat the entire packet :P
Good luck!!!!!

Great idea! I think the biggest obstacle for mums at home, (besides the pantry LOL) is the lack of time to ourselves, yes we could go for a walk with the kids but a serious work out at a gym is like therapy. It's exersize, me-time and a confidence booster all in one.

I also have always been overweight until my daughter was born and suddenly I could eat whatever I wanted and lost weight, it was excellent however I recently stopped breastfeeding so now I have to really watch out. I'm a emotional eater but also eat out of boredom so I realise I need to keep busier.

Good luck!
