I'm 42 and have struggled with my weight all my life. It's gone up slowly but steadily and now I'm 14st 12. My heaviest was over 15. It's been hard since I quit smoking 6 years ago but frustrating because I must have the willpower to do this if I can kick a 40 a day and 20 year fag habit!
I had a surprise baby in July this year after a 12 year gap since having twins.
After seeing a recent photo and trying to play on the floor it's made me realise the weight has got to go. i dont normally exercise so have ditched the car for thelast fortnight and walked whenever I can. i've signed up to my fitness pal to monitor food and exercise, dusted off the wii, fit plus and ea active.
I dont want to rush my weight loss and am happy with 1lb per week. I will find it hard to adjust our eating habits though as my cooking has always been lots of carbs, big portions and a tight budget. My family are already complaining!
I've always got lots to say so thanks for reading
