First of all i know what you are going through. I am 21 and i am 157cm, and now weigh 84 kilos, I am classed as obese on the BMI scale and although i just look overweight i feel awful.
I figured out to lose it in a healthy way, it will take me until may/june next year. I need to lose 20 kilos just to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. And then about 3 after that.
It is hard for me being the size i am now because when i was smaller i looked great and i knew it. I would attract attention, now all i attract is looks of disgust. I am a size 16 at the moment and i want to lose it otherwise i know that it will cause problems later on.
I got a gym membership, i cant really afford it either, but i changed our budget around a bit because i figure it is for my health and will be worth it.
Actually going is a different story.
I have been making up big meals and then freezing them ready made with vegies and all. And i have 1/4 meat or meal to 3/4 vegies.
I also started today writing a weight loss journal. I always thought that was a silly idea, but it somehow makes you feel better to 'talk' about it/write it down.
I got DP to take photos as well. Do they look awful. I am so disgusted i let myself get this way.
My mum used to be a weight watchers lecturere and it works for a lot of women. I tried it but found it really hard preparing everything with a baby.
I tried the shakes, and that worked a little, but then the thought of having them made me feel sick. You know how you eat something so much you get sick of it?
At the moment i am trying lite'n'easy, but it is so expensive and we were strugling to pay bills and got behind.
So now i am making up dinners and freezing them, so all i have to do is pop them in the microwave. And also for breakfast, just having toast, fruit or cereal.
I still get a little lite'n'easy, just not the full program, because i simply cant afford it.
It gives me an idea of portion sizes and what i should be eating as well.
Good Luck with your weight loss.
