I have just joined up and am hoping that sharing this experience with positive people will help me to stay motivated and successfully lose this extra fat once and for all!
I have just had my calculator out and worked out that I'd really like to lose five stone but am going to aim for four stone initially - that sounds so straight forward hehe
I started to gain weight when I left home for uni and it has steadily crept up through the first few years of married life. I have always loved eating - whether for comfort, stress, sadness or happiness! Four years ago we approached the GP because we weren't pregnant after trying for some time, and to cut a long story a bit shorter, we had three rounds of IVF, and now have a beautiful daughter.
Next year we are aiming for another IVF in September ish so I want to lose weight in preparation but to try and retrain my brain into a healthier lifestyle to give my daughter someone to look up to and to feel happier myself.
Would love to hear from others in a similar situation and hope we could help each other along the way!
