I am normally not a big fan on dieting. I have to admit I love my food and growing up my Mum was always on a diet. I felt I didn't want to be like that for years. Always watching my weight but due to a health scare I thought I should really look at losing some weight. I am a large cuddly woman and have become larger over the last 4 years. Four years ago I managed to give up a 40 a day cigarette habit but I think that was the start of the weight gain. Instead of craving for nicotine I replaced that addiction with sweet, creamy rich foods. I have decided to try the meal replacement meals. I know alot of people have tried them and had loads of success but I know some people say they don't work. What have I got to lose only weight. Any way I have at least 40 kg to shift. I am on day 2 and feeling pretty good. I have started exercising. Nothing major. Thankfully my daughter has a treadmill and this amazing machine that I call the Fat Wobbler that I use. She only lives a street away. The weekend is here I am determined not to buckle under the pressure. I have just finished my shopping and have loads of fresh fruit and vegies to tied me over.
Each week I will blog on how I am going and any failures I have had over the week. I have put up a picture of what I look like now. The photo isn't to old.
