I've been lurking for a week or so, feeling a bit embarrassed about returning to 3fc again after all these years (I first joined in Oct 2001, and last posted in Nov 2011)
When I first joined, it was the run-up to my 40th birthday and I was adamant that I wasn't going to be 'fat & forty'! When I last posted, it was the run-up to my 50th birthday and I was adamant that I wasn't going to be 'fat & fifty'! However, you can probably all guess what happened during the years in between, so I won't bore you with the details!
Now, here I am again, already turned fifty and still fat! I'm so sick of the way I feel and look! I feel like I've wasted the last 20 years of my life inside someone else's body! I used to be slim and felt attractive, then I got married and had kids (still happily!), but my body went downhill from there!
Anyway, after having a little lurk around the boards for a few days, I've noticed a few 'old-time-returnees', so I don't feel quite so embarrassed about returning after all this time.
I've spent the past few days reading up on the SBD plan again to refresh my memory (it's been a while!) and I'm really looking forward to getting started again. I'm clearing the kitchen cupboards of all the holiday goodies that I want rid off, and I'm off to re-stock them this weekend with all the food I can eat on Phase 1.
I have no idea how much I weigh right now (my tracker still shows my stats from 2011!), but I suspect I'm well into the 200's
I'll be weighing-in on Monday for the first time in over a year and I'll alter my tracker then.
Looking forward to getting back on the beach and hopefully spending the majority of my 50's in my own body rather than the one that's smothered me for the past 20 years!
