At the moment I feel really motivated, but I know from past (failed) diet experiences this 'high' is temporary and why I think it's really important to join forums and share the load with the only people who can understand - and that's the folks who are going through the same - so YOU
My initial struggle will be the no alcohol rule. I have developed a habit of unwinding with a glass (or two) of wine most evenings. My work can be stressy at times, but I know I use that as an excuse too. I actually think having to abstain is a good thing, but I'm going to have to come up with some sort of distraction.
My ideal weight would be around 9.7 stone, but I think 10 is probably more realistic and sustainable. I am 5ft 4 ins and at my lowest got to 9 stone up to 13.8 at my heaviest. I'm sitting at 12.5 right now and have been that weight for the last 2 to 3 years. I've yo-yo'd on and off diets for years now and I'm fast approaching the dreaded menopause and fear my weight will continue to grow and my diet history has affected my metabolism. So I'm under no illusion that this is going to take time - but I'm looking forward to getting to know lots of folks here along the way.
Right now I'm off to do a bit more swotting up - back to the book.
